Great vacation and wonderful location

This was our first vacation at the Riu Jalisco. We have been to Nueveo Vallarta before and really liked the area. The Riu did not disappoint us in any way. The rooms were clean, the service and staff were wonderful. The food was good and had enough variety to satisfy everyone. It was good to see the variety of entertainment. All the staff worked hard to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The grounds, pool area and beach area were beautiful. We had a wonderful time and defiantly would go back to the Riu Jalisco again.

Riu Jalisco

I have been to Club Riu Jalisco for the last six years in a row. Last year was by far the best stay as they amped up the involvement of the entertainment crew. This year was much more subdued. Cutbacks were evident in staff probably due to economic conditions. The food was not as good as in years past in the continental restaurant. The last three days I stayed were much improved in food choice. Overall it was a comfortable stay for the price.

If you do not want resort food all the time, I would recommend visiting Meson Bay up the beach in Bucerias. They have an excellent surf and turf plate, and you will not be disappointed. They are on the beach and the service is excellent.

Felt like a cruise on land

Hotel itself is clean and in good condition. Staff were very responsive to requests, such as fixing our broken television and bringing towels after the cleaning staff had taken our dirty towels and not left clean ones. The scene is kind-of fratty, i.e. daytime drinking games at the pool.

For a break from the mediocre food, walk up the beach 45 minutes to a small town where you can grab a good local bite.

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.

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.

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.

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!
