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. 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!

Was a nice place but the beds were very uncomfortable( like sleeping on plywood) and they give day passes to locals which made it very full on the beach or in the pool!! Seem to run out of hot water in the shower, thought maybe it would be just the one day but turned out to be every day.. Otherwise it is a very nice place to stay More>

My fiance and I went to Mexico the second time and we decide to stat at Riu instead. The previous time we went we stay at the Marrival Resort and that was the best. Riu isn't bad at all but the room we stay at is very dark and loudsy. The food was OK. They have the same food over and over again for 7 days nothing different. We tried the Steak there at night time? Omg its so hard like rock I can even chew the meet. Over all this place isn't bad. The ppls here are nice and helpful. Lots of babies and family as well as couples. I probably try another place next time if I go. More>

It was our first time in Mexico and we loved it. Awesome place. We enjoyed every minute while there. Food was great. What's very nice about this resort is that there are palm trees at the beach which was nice cuz my 2 year old took naps at the beach. More>

For the price this place was great. Food was good, weather was great beach was good although the water is not like Cancun but was fine. The only complaint was the locals that were staying at the resort they did not understand what waiting in line for your turn (not the resorts fault) and our Sunwing rep they say to buy through them but just a note they will charge you more and still rip you off so don't believe them and think you are protected. Try this hotel for the money you will not be disappointed. Just a note the gentleman working the portable bar by the kids pool did a awesome job and I did not grab his name but always remembered what we drank and with all the guests I thought that was great. Never had a bad experience with the actual hotel or their employees. I would go back without a question. More>

a great place to relax or have some fun

i read some reviews and was nervous about this resort. I am glad I went. the food was repetative but enough variety to keep it enjoyable. If you like to have drinks your in luck, top of the line liquor and as strong as you want drinks. mini fridge in room with water, pepsi, tecate, and a bar included with you stay. pool bar can get crowded but is still alot of fun. beach area was clean and very nice to go watch sunsets. i highly recommend you give it a shot. you also can visit the sister hotel and eat and drink there as well, a 5 minute walk down the beach. about 5 bucks for a taxi to oxxo for snacks and drinks if you need them. 1 dollar on the bus gets you downtown pto, pack your bags More>
