A high quality, family-friendly resort

Riu Jalisco was our 4th Mexican all-inclusive resort stay, and our 3rd in Puerto Vallarta. It was by far the most luxurious, largest and, for our dollars - the best experience. The weather in February is perfection, where as Cancun can still be quite rainy. The rooms are identical to most large-scale hotels with two major exceptions. The FREE bottled water, soft drinks and beer refilled daily in the ice-cold fridge and the free liquor dispenser. We didn't use the booze (there are like 10 bars, so not really needed). The grounds are lush and LARGE. The walk to the beach is longer than other resorts, but only because the grounds are so large. The nightly shows are offered in the unique outdoor theater, a real treat - if you've ever gone to the indoor resort shows, they can be dull. Here, they were really funny - the entertainment team (led by [...]) is really top notch - and if you aren't into the show there are two lively bars just on the edge of the seating areas that are very fun. The food selections are quite nice and varied - something I was concerned about before we got there, as they only have 5 restaurants and only two took reservations. My concerns were unneeded, as they offered theme nights including a clam bake, a Mexican BBQ and other unique meals. Lots of covered, outdoor seating, which we took full advantage of coming from Minnesota.

There are no beach or pool area waiters, so bring a insulated mug from home, or a frisbee to carry a couple of drinks back from the bar to your seats. They DO come by and grab empty glasses, but we have found a few good size mugs help cut down the trips to the bar. Also, this resort is at least a 30 minute ride to PV. It is not the place if you want to frequently head out to the town - it's in Nueva Vallarta, which is almost entirely large resorts and a small town for shopping.

One of the best vacations we have had

We have stayed at two Riu resorts and will continue to stay with this company. The food is great, rooms are clean, and the staff is always friendly, and they have lots of things to do, even if you do not want to leace the resort.

RIU Jalisco has changed

I have been to RIU resorts well over 15 times and was at the Jalisco 2 1/2 years ago. The hotel has two large pools - one with a swim up bar and the other with slides etc. for children. Last time I went security kept the kids in the children pool and adults only in the swim up bar pool. This time over the weekend as many as 40 children under 12 were in the pool at one time-made for a disruption for those without children.

It is better to secure transportation once you get outside the airport and a taxi back from the hotel than purchasing round trip travel prior to getting there - aboust $40.00 less.

Birthday Celebration Spot

Staff was very friendly. Housekeeping was very prompt in cleaning rooms. Rooms had musky odor. Beds were hard, but could order extra mattress pads to put on top, also mattresses were very loud when you moved around in bed. Food was just OK, not all restaurants were open at the same time, they alternated. Food in the Sports Bar that was accessible 24 hrs a day was horrible except for the fruit. Bartenders were very generous when asked. But the price was right when traveling with a large group of 10 for a birthday celebration, but would I go back there with just my husband, NO.

Keep looking if you want to relax

The hotel was far from the center of Puerto Vallarta and there is nearly nothing to do in Nuevo Vallarta. The hotel claims there are 5 restaurants available for dining, but really only 2 are open every night and reservations are available for less than 75 people. The food at the international buffet is mediocre. The hotel environment is VERY loud. Bring earplugs if you plan on getting any rest.

Take the bus to Puerto Vallarta. You'll save yourself a lot of money if you skip the taxis!
