Just returned on July 16 from 1 week at the Riu Jalisco, Puerto Vallarta, MX. For the most part, we loved it. Food was mostly excellent, although not enough variety. The 3 buffet restaurants bascially served the same food. Surprisingly, they only had 1 restaureant where you could reserve "al a carte" (not buffet) AND they serve the EXACT same... More

Yes the beds are hard & it was resolved by asking for a pad. Any problems were always resolved quickly. Food was good & 2 different Buffet resturantsfor breakfast & dinner. Something for everyone. Selection large & fresh. The waiters were constantly cleaning the tables. The one thing I have to say is that the hotel is tired looking. They... More

First of all, this was my first trip to Puerto Vallarta....and I was extremely pleased with what I experienced. For adults, it is much better than Cancun!! The hotel was wonderful...the beds are too hard, but you are in Mexico...right? The staff was excellent...they attended to every need and request with a smile. I am a picky eater so don't... More

If only I had Dorothys ruby slippers from the Wizard Of Oz I would click them three times and ask to go back to the Riu Jalisco.

We were really skeptical after reading some reviews and checking the weather forecast (60% chance of showers every day!)..... I even called the evening before to try and change to Playa Car but the return flights were sold out. THANK GOODNESS because we loved the Riu Jalisco and Puerto Vallarta.

Having stayed in Riu hotels before we expected that this one would come up to the same standard--no way! We read the reviews from American visitors and thought that they were maybe exaggerating but no, too many Mexican guests with totally unruly noisy kids who ran through the hotel screaming and shouting in the early hours of the morning (2/3...

I just spent a week at the Riu Jalisco and had a wonderful time. Many of the reviews I read prior to visiting spoke negatively about the resort, however I found all of those comments to be false. The property was absolutely fabulous. All the bushes were nicely manicured, lawn mowed, and beach raked each evening. Each morning the maids... More
