My wife and I have just returned from Riu Jalisco, having spent a great fortnight there. After 15 hours of being on a plane from UK, it was welcome relief that we got in and out of the airport and to the resort quickly and hassle free. For UK travellers, I thought First choice flight was excellent. We travelled in... More

We stayed at the Riu Jalisco from Feb 10 to the 17th. The food was wonderfully presented and very good. The staff bent over backwards to meet your every need. The gardens were out of this world. The rooms were clean and fresh and stocked every second day or if you needed more the staff were there in 10 minutes.... More

We were at the RIU Jalisco from February 3 to the 10 and absolutely loved it. We too were somewhat concerned by previous negative reviews. While some of the comments are accurate (eg. there is no true a-la-carte restaurant and the corridors can be a bit noisy at times), these were by no means as problematic as others have made... More

We stayed at the Riu Jalisco from Feb 2 to the 9th. The weather was great, lots of sunshine everyday with a nice breeze on the beach. The hotel was only about a 20 to 30 minute ride from the airport which was great. Check in was okay, they first gave us a room on the 4th floor with no... More

This hotel had some issues. We came with the impression that this hotel would be a five-star hotel and were disappointed. Our room was ready when we arrived but when we got in the room, the air conditioner was broken! It took three calls to the front desk and one trip down to the front desk where my husband had...
