Rising from an oasis of palms on a long stretch of beach, triangular turrets glimmer silver in the Vallarta sun. A white Mediterranean Palace, Riu Jalisco has walkways and gardens that surround two lagoon swimming pools. Pelicans skim waves that gently break over miles of gold sand - a beach lover's dream. The lobby and restaurants are enriched with polished wood, frescos, hand painted floral ceilings, and mosaic tiles - the signature of extraordinary RIU Resorts. The theme, the state of Jalisco, Mexico is intermingled with the decor.

Many activities are available! Nightly entertainment includes the Disco (entrance and drinks are included) and live shows. RiuLand Mini-Club features fun activities and a playground for kids ages 4-12. Adults can also relax in the swim-up bar and mingle with new friends.

Unlimited drinks are served at the five bars and a fully stocked mini-bar and liquor dispenser is available in all rooms. Riu Jalisco is definitely a 24-hour all-inclusive delight!

Poor entertainment, no cash machine that worked
JoeMc2009, Toronto, Canada
Sun Jul 16 20:06:29 EDT 2017
All in all a poor place to be on holiday. Staff don't let people play volleyball after certain times on the beach. Cash machines never worked which meant we couldn't leave the place for our entire stay. "Entertainment" by the pool was horrendous and annoying. Beds had a mattress protector that protected from liquid damage, which made it hot and also loud when you rolled over, mattresses were stained incase you try taking it off. UK holiday makers, it's like being on the set of Benidorm. Canadian holiday makers, if you like hockey parents you are in the right place. US holiday makers a lot of republicans. Food was good and hotel staff friendly.

Great Resort

Spent a week at this resort and it was great. Lots to do or not if you just want to relax. Beautiful beach with amazing sunsets! Entertainment was fantastic. Never had a problem with getting a lounger at either the beach or the pool! Steak house was my favorite place to eat especially with the view! Cleaning crews everywhere and worked very hard to keep the resort up and did an great job of it! Will definitely go back again and my kids enjoyed it!!

The best holiday ever

Such a fantastic place to visit. We saw humpback whales from our sunloungers on the beach! Staff are so friendly and try there best to please you. The rooms were spottlessely clean, spacious and little animals were made out of the towels each day (my son was very happy with this) the grounds are kept beautifully maintained. Always plenty of staff around. Plenty of activities to get involved in. We did rifle shooting, vollyball, bodyboarding and kayaking all of which was free. My kids never got bored whilst here. Plenty of resaurants on site. Can't fault the food at all. Plenty of choice each night. The steakhouse has the best view because its on the sea front. The mexican restaurant is probably my favourite but then they were all so good!. Would i go again? Absolutely!!! Its a beautiful part of the country and such an amazing hotel.

Horrible

Hi.. this was our 9th time to Mexico and this was the worst hotel/ trip we have ever had. We had always heard Riu hotels were top notch. So we decided this would be the perfect spot for a trip. We took our two daughters (who are 18yo) there for a graduation present. The pool was disgusting. We had to swim around food, cigarette butts, empty cups, large bugs and many children jumping and playing off the swim up bar. The beds were hard with rooms that were so hot. When asked the front desk for another fan or to come look at our room, they said we had a ceiling fan. The food was cold or over cooked. Our last night there we went to the steak house and the staff seemed "to forget about us". We left before even finishing our meal. The main bathrooms are disgusting and dirty. Majority of staff either ignored us or waited on us after waiting on other people after we would walk up. My husband and I are completely upset and sadden that this was our trip to the girls. I would never recommend this hotel to anyone for any reason. The only good thing about the trip the girls said was jumping the waves on the beach. Other than that... we just wasted a lot of money. So very disappointed.

Two Week Vacation

We stayed here as a family for 2 weeks in February. The Good - - 2 pools and lots of loungers.Trying to get chairs on the bar side was more of a trick and involved early mornings. The quiet pool always seemed to have lots of chairs available, though. - Location on the beach was awesome. We could walk in either direction for miles and the beach was great for walking in both ways. - great entertainment in the lobby bar in the early evenings. There was also a band most nights before the show and the animation staff often provided other entertainment. - A nice large balcony. The Bad - Very big and compressed into a relatively small area. A walk from the pool/beach back to our room on the 6th floor could take 1/2 hour as the only elevators are in the centre of the building. - Not enough staff when we stayed. I felt bad for the staff in the buffets and restaurants because they were run off their feet. We usually had to get our own drinks (including coffee and wine) and seat ourselves. In one a la carte we never did see a server throughout our entire meal. Getting specific food in the buffets was hit and miss depending on where you were in line and when they filled the trays. If you got lucky you got some before the tray sat empty again while waiting for more food to be cooked. Overall, the food wasn't very good. - Aside from the entertainment, the lobby bar was horrible. It was so noisy even when there was almost no on there. Our son refused to go back in there after the first time. - If you travel with anyone that you wouldn't normally feel comfortable sharing a bathroom with, take something for a curtain!! Our 2 teenagers (one male, one female) shared a room and we ended up going to Walmart to purchase a short rod and a cheap shower curtain so that they could have a bit of privacy getting in and out of the shower and to get dressed. We had a good vacation since we don't stress out about the little things. I would return, but it isn't on the top of the list. We loved the location, but the resort itself was just too big and impersonal.
