Puerto Vallarta/Riviera Nayarit

Riu Jalisco


Email | Share |
All Inclusive    

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. 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!
