For a really cheap trip it was great. The staff were always very nice but you spend a fortune in tips. The smell mentioned in the other reviews is more noticable in the hallways than the room. The climate is EXTEMELY humid. We found that keeping the air conditioning on in the rooms at all times helped keep the smell...

A group of 12 adults and 1 child travelled to the Riu Jalisco for our wedding. Arriving at Puerto Vallarta after a 12 hour flight and 6 hours time difference we were all very tired. It was nice to have a welcome drink before we boarded the coach to take us to our resort. On arrival at Riu Jalisco the...

After waiting for 3 hours at the hotel lobby, we were given a room with double beds and not a king bed as we specifically requested through Expedia. The room was right above the sports bar in the hotel and it was extremely noisy from the time we got there. We spoke to the hotel personnel and were told that...

We were at the Riu Jalisco in May and were overall really happy with our experience. We were on the bottom floor and it was extremely moldy so we cranked up the A/C and had the fan going all of the time. It helped, somewhat. Due to no fault of the hotel, we asked to move rooms (that's another story),...

This hotel was wonderful. The hotel has the all inclusive option, which is the only way to go! All inclusive includes: drinks: soda, water, alcohol, coffee, and juices, food: there are 6 restaurants (EXCELLENT food), water sports (everything that does not require gasoline), lots of entertainment, and many others. There is an awesome beach that they keep very clean in...

My boyfriend and i stayed at the Riu Jalisco from 10th May to the 24th May and from the moment we arrived we both loved it, and the surrounding area of Nuevo Vallarta. As soon as we got off the plane on to the coach, we were handed an ice cold Corona (just what we needed after a 12 hour...

First of all, I paid only $1.6k for two (with flight) for 7 days stay at this hotel, so it was pretty sweet deal in my opinion. You cannot expect too much for this kind of price, but still I liked Riu Jalisco. Grounds. The hotel and its grounds are very nice. The lobby is huge and very presentable. There...

Hello Everyone. Before booking a last minute vacation at the Riu Jalisco we checked the reviews and decided that maybe all the bad reviews came from isolated incidents or from complainers. We decided to book and figured that we'd have a great time even if the resort sucked. Well it did, it totally sucked. And I am not just a...

Hotel was nice. We were there in May so it wasn't crowded at all. I started getting sick the day we left. I ended up in the hospital with food poisoning. An extra week off work. My doctor bills are going to triple what my vacation cost.
