Fun Weekend Getaway

I went on this trip simply to have a relaxing vacation. The landscape at the hotel was gorgeous as was the art in the lobby and around the hotel. The hotel was located on the beach and was close to town and about 15 minutes from the airport. My room was located near the stage where shows were performed at night, so it was loud but other than that, the hotel was great.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

Buccerias is a little town where vendors are located on the streets selling jewelry, art, and Mexican liquor. The vendors are willing to negotiate, and the town was safe and authentic!

Great get away for the price

We did the outdoor adventure tour which was wonderful. We also walked to the little town of Bucerias via the beach which had alot of flea market type shopping. The food was ok, beds were very comfortable, staff was very friendly. Also, booked our transportion to and from the airport thru Grayline and I would do it no other way. They picked us up at the airport were there waiting for us and also picked us up right on time at the hotel to bring us back. There was a Grayline Rep in the lobby of the hotel every day if we had any questions or needed help with anything he was right there. I would book my transportation no other way.

Wonderful Service...Great deal!

Nightlife lacked excitement... A bit distant from Vallarta nightlife. However, the day activities and were excellent.

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.

Money-saving tip: In 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.
