the good and the bad...

The good: the staff was great and the room was clean. The bad: pools were filthy, people were smoking while in the pool, over 50% of adult pool was kids, there was only one restroom outside for beach and pool goers. Entertainment was hard to enjoy if you know little spanish.

Would NOT go back!

The hotel was no where near the type of all-inclusive we usually stay at. The food was just OK and the staff were mediocre at best. The entertainment was a joke, as in they just used guests and games as entertainment. Drinks were good, but only from the Pancho and Villa bars which were only open from 6p-12a. The hotel is way overcrowded with locals and they definitely cater to th locals. The beds and pillows were HARD, like sleeping on a rock. Will definitely not be going back to this hotel.

Bring lots of your own personal use items (sunscreen, aloe...) as it is horribly overpriced at the hotel.

I WANT, I WANT TO GO TO RIU

Lovely grounds, with areas of shade available. The entertainment crew was fabulous, lots of fun games around the pool to either participate in or watch. Food selections were varied and delicious. We had no problem getting chairs in prime locations, the towel game is not played at this RIU. We have been to Mexican resorts 5 times now, twice at the RIU chain. I highly recommend RIU Jalisco.

Dining tip: In Hotel

The food at the buffet style restaurants had exceeded our expectations with variety and taste. La Botana provides some great views of Ocean side dining. One night we booked a reservation for the the private dining restaurant but the food or the experience was not that great. The meat selection was all that we were able to experience elsewhere but the presentation was staggered and not all that impressive.

Great Time

We went with a group of 12 mid 20 year olds and we all had an amazing time. The staff was fantastic and the food much better than expecting. For what we paid it was everything we expected and more. A few complaints are that the water would switch from hot to cold while showering and the blow dryer got super hot. Would definitely recommend for groups of friends looking for a great deal but you can tell it's not a 5 star resort so if you are looking for everything to be super nice its not for you. But if you want to go somewhere with good food, very friendly staff (especially the bartenders) and get a great deal for what you pay you should check it out!

We tried the Italian restaurant one night, the only one that needed reservations and I missed the buffet. Not worth the time in my opinion.

Nice place but too many locals

The location was great. Very close to Busarius which is a great little town for the market and local beach bars. Beach was nice. Bartenders were friendly. Maids not too friendly. Food was OK, nothing special. Durring the week there was too many locals there, we definately were the minority. Disappointed that 2 of the 4 restraurants were closed durring the stay and the Asian was buffet. Beds are hard but typical for MX. They have a plastic mattress cover that we took off because we felt like we were sleeping a plastic sheet.
