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!

Just came back from RIU Jalisco. 25 min cab ride from the airport. Check in was fast and easy. Beds were 2 double beds put together. We ask for a king/queen bed and they installed a foam cover on top and was sufficient. The resort is kept very clean and beautiful. The food is average. Lots of variety for drinks. The pool is large and can be a long walk or a long swim to the bar if your on the opposite side. Beach is really nice when the tide goes out and enjoy a nice long walk. Highly recommend taking a cab into puerto vallarta and walk the boardwalk and check out the flea market. Overall I enjoyed my stay here but will be trying other resorts in the future

Back at the Jalisco again.

Our second time to the Jalisco was as good as the first. We stayed in room 1134 which was nice and quite but unfortunately looked out over the Driveway to Samba Vallarta next door. We didn't mind too much as we only spend time to change, shower, and sleep there. We did have a leaky toilet but was fixed right away with no problem. The food is great, good selection and plenty of it. Staff are friendly and nice. The beach is great. Never had a problem getting a lounger. Cons--before you board the bus to go to the hotel the Sunwing reps are selling two Coronas from a cooler for 100 pesos. Go over to the OXO store at the end of the parking lot and get two larger cans of Tecate for 44 pesos. Seats on the plane coming back do not recline. When your flight leaves at 8:20 p.m. it is impossible to get any sleep sitting bolt upright. The hotel is huge, 700 rooms or so. Next year we will probably book the SAmba Vallarta next door which only has 180 rooms. The buffett is very noisy at Jalisco so the Samba should be quitter. Pros--love going into Bucerias and PV.

Excellent Services, good food

We went as a big family trip around Christmas time. The room was spacious (we got family room on 5th floor), clean. The food was great - the best is that we did not need to reserve for supper except Christmas Eve. The services were wonderful.

Excellent hotel- same as other Riu hotels. Great staff, excellent food and drinks, great entertainment. Perfect AI beach holiday- layout of Jalisco is better than other Riu hotels nearby. Much more spacious pool and outdoor areas. Prefer pacific coast to Cancun, better weather , much more relaxing. We had a fantastic room in the main building , with amazing sunset views. Would definitely go again, and recommend.

Was not sure about this resort when we booked. It said 3 1/2 stars and was 700 rooms. Who ever gave it that rating had to be asleep. It was definitely a 4 1/2. Staff were outstanding. The cleanest resort I have ever been to. The food was fabulous. Selection was great. Italian and steakhouse were wonderful. And how great! No reservations needed. The resort was fully booked and we never had to wait more than a few minutes to get what we wanted. Never a problem getting a lounge chair. Beach was awesome. And thanks for Canada Night.
