Great place

The Riu Jalisco has really stepped up its game . There was a foam party in the pool one day then the RIU party the next night and then a white party . Very, very cool . Drinks and food were always real good and prompt . The staff was good. The room was clean. Beds were ok . I have been here 7 times and it is way better now than ever before. I will definitely return here again soon . Btw I am 50 no kids and travel 4-6 times a year.

Great place

First off, the staff is AMAZING! Great customer service, friendly, fun, happy, all around, lovely people. They were always ready to help, recommending things to do such as, clubs, tours, etc. and the customer service team even sent a bottle of tequila to my room and set me up with a special event at one of the restaurants for my birthday (which was amazing!). You pretty much want for nothing! Food is flowing, alcohol is abundant (bars are great, there is a liquor dispenser and mini bar in the room), activities are always happening, and the spa was great (I got a massage right on the beach and used the jacuzzi tub). Additionally, Puerta Vallarta is only 15 minutes away and grabbing a taxi into town was a breeze! Setting up excursions through the water sports team was also a breeze! Maid staff cleaned our room spotless everyday and the grounds, restaurants, other public areas, etc. at the resort were very clean and beautiful. The ONLY thing I would change - I frequently saw kids in the adult pools, sitting at the adult pool bars, and at the actual bar during late night hours. I didn't like that at all! Not a place for kids. Not to mention, myself and 3 friends wanted to go to the adult pool's pool bar but 3 kids were occupying the seats and dunking back off of the seats, splashing water all over the place. Not relaxing. I think the staff should monitor/enforce the rules better with this one.

Family Vacation

The resort and service was outstanding! Giovannie, Peio, Andres, Nacho, and Cecilia are great workers who tended to us to the fullest. The beach was beautiful with no rocks, no seaweed, and the currents were not very rough. The pool was good other than lots of kids around the swim up bar. The food was good from breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The Italian and Steakhouse were the best! The evening entertainment was also good. Best Michael Jackson show we’ve seen. We have been to 5 different resorts. The downside was that the club smelled like dirt mop and vomit mixed with faboloso!!! I would recommend the staff use bleach. We had to walk to sister hotel one night to enjoy the night club.

What's to Love

No reservations needed at any of the restaurants.

The Spanish-style resort with Moorish flourishes, surrounded by palm groves and the Pacific.

The liquor dispensers in the rooms. It's a party. Just add people.

RiuLand - supervised fun for the little ones while you savor that beachtastic drink by the teal waves.

The majestic Sierra Madres that hug Banderas Bay, which frame the soul-stirring sunsets.

Stress-smashing massages in open-air palapas, facials and Henna tattoos you can get at the spa.

The championship golf course that's near and waiting for your A game.

The nearby Marieta Islands with the hidden beach, a natural wonder that'll blow your hair back.

 

What We'd Change

Since it's located in Nuevo Vallarta, it's a bit of a drive to the shopping and sights in downtown Puerto Vallarta. But most families never want to leave the all-inclusive perks at Riu Jalisco.

 

Why You Should Go

The airport is 10 miles from the airport. Your vacay is so near you'll be able to taste it.

Frolicking at the dolphinarium in Banderas Bay is a great option for a non-beach day.

The Malecon, a promenade with beautiful sculpture, is near and ready for your oohing/awing.

There's wave after wave of water sports: body boarding, kayaking, catamarans, and more.

The boat trip to Yelapa, an epic, beachy paradise you can access by boat, is a must-do.

For a fee, you can hop on horses and/or bikes to explore the exotic, tropical terrain.

The traditional village of Bucerias is near and filled with craft markets for your sourveniring.

Hotel Description

Riu Jalisco: An All-Inclusive Pacific Coast Dream

For a totally different, but equally beachtastic vacay, head to the Pacific side of Mexico at Nuevo Vallarta. Here, the everything-ness about this resort will take hold of your heart and begin a Spoil-a-thon that you'll long remember: the unlimited gourmet cuisine and tropical drinks, sparkling ocean water, glimmering pools and dreamy sunsets under the palms. The glittering nightlife is not too shabby either. It's a one-stop shop for aah-some.

It's Time to Get Your Riu On.

You can swim and snorkel without any ginormous waves hitting you over the head, causing water to go up your nose.
