I have to say that when we first arrived at this resort I found it stunning. I was staying at the Riu as one of the 70 or so that were invited to celebrate a wedding. I am confident to say that myself along with the other guests in our party were very pleased with the hospitality and services offered...

This resort offers so many choices I cannot believe that people have the nerve to complain about anything. You must have a real problem if you cannot find anything to eat at any of the choices given. The grounds are very well kept and are continuously being maintained. Our room was very clean and had no problems that others have...

This is my second stay at Riu Jalisco and in the year that I've been there, a few things have changed. The rooms haven't changed much, but the housekeeping service is not consistent. Some days you get towels and toiletries, some days you don't. When we arrived, they claimed they only had one key and that my spouse and I...

We booked this holiday through FirstChoice and were very happy with the service received on the plane and at the check-in, but were most impressed with our Rep for the holiday, Pete, who was always friendly, informative and efficient. Anything you wanted, he got, including some cardboard for us to keep straight some paintings we bought at the hotel. When...

We just returned from our first trip here. The entertainment staff was excellent. They stayed busy with guests all day and at night there was entertainment in the theater. Everyone works really hard here. They are very accommodating to their guests. The only drawback was after a couple of days, we grew tired of the food but it was good....

We stayed at the RIU 9/22/08-9/28/08 for our honeymoon. I was ABSOLUTELY freaked out by the negative reviews for this place, they are false. I think the people who write negative reviews about this resort are the type of people if you gave them $500 they would complain because they wanted $600. With five restaurants I don't see how anyone...
