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. Complimentary 24-hour WiFi is also available in the common areas of the resort (available in rooms for an additional charge). Guests of Riu Jalisco enjoy exchange privileges with the Riu Vallarta next door (dinner restaurants excluded).

Riu Jalisco has many dining options! Scrumptious buffets are offered at Don Emiliano, Doa Adelita serves Mexican cuisine, Brazilian Rodizio specialties at Nayarit, Asian fare at Gran Dragon, and a Grill Steakhouse La Botana. 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!

Very good vacation ( should have booked longer time )
Zbigniew G, Edmonton

Very nice well kept resort Rooms - good clean mini bar Restaurants and buffet - plenty choices of food Bars - all have good selection of local and international drinks Would like mention Josue at main street bar -so good at his doings behind the bar fast efficient and even with plenty people around the bar remembers what you ordered before Also Arturo- mostly at the disco- takes care of your drinks We are an older couple so we thought that- as world belongs to the young - we be like at the end in line. Nothing like that - they take good care of you regardless of your looks Ajehandro at lunch or at the buffet restaurant takes good care of you and makes you feel welcome. All the staff is friendly and accommodating trying to do the best Two pools are kept clean, same with the beach- only there some people leave cigarettes buts on the ground - USE ashtrays !!

DON'T GO HERE

Where do I start we are riu club card holders so we have been to many of there hotels across the world but this is the worse one by far. The rooms stank of damp and need a revamp asap.The restaurants always smelt of fat in the air and the main restaurant was always dirty.When you hear the staff announcing every day NO PEE PEE in the pool then you know don't put a toe in the water.Shouting and loud music all night even tho you tell the staff nobody takes any notice but the worse night had to be the sex party in the room above us with the worse language you have ever heard and yes we did report to the managers as we thought we had booked into a family hotel.please please take your money to another hotel.sorry we will not be coming back to Nuevo Vallarta again

It’s a nice clean hotel, I found it weird that kids were allowed in the swim up bar, there’s no adult only pools, so while your trying to relax you have kids jumping everywhere , one of them knocked my phone into the pool , they cleaned our rooms everyday, but we had to call 3 times for them to come stock our fridge, the food is ok but nothing special, this is probably the worst Riu I have stayed at

Nice hotel, great staff

My family and I had a great 2 weeks staying at the Riu Jalisco. The rooms were a good size and well maintained, more than adequate for what we needed. The restaurants were good too, with a wide variety in the buffets as well as the steakhouse overlooking the sea which was lovely. The staff were also fantastic, especially Luz from the sports bar and Ramon from one of the bars near the stage- they couldn't do enough for us. The pool areas didn't get too busy which was nice and there were plenty of activities to keep us busy.

Do Not Stay Here

My husband and I decided to stay here for a weeks trip and where to I begin. The food was horrible the o my thing good at the restaurants are the deserts. The room was an alright size but are out dated and the safe didn’t work, we called downstairs but no one came to fix it until the next day. The towels forget it, they are hard and smell. You will not get an ocean view as the way the resort is build it surrounds its self around the water fountains. On our third day here we laid on the bed and one of our pillows smelled like mold we had to leave the cleaning personnel a note to change it. On the 4th day they forgot to leave us towels, we called the reception area and they said they’d be right up, 4 hours later nothing, we called again and within 15 minutes the towels arrived. We left to dinner after that only to return to a cot in our room. Who ordered the cot we will never know but it wasn’t us. We ended up going to el malecon to eat almost everyday as the food wasn’t great and the Dragon Restaurant that “serves” Asian food is horrible. It’s the smallest buffet at the resort. In my opinion do not waste your money and stay here, stay at the malecon you’ll have varieties of restaurants. Another thing too is that there are children running all over the place without supervision at all hours of the day. And a lot of the people who stay here are rude. My recommendation is to stay at Krystal resort at the malecon, it is absolutely beautiful.
