We stayed at the Riu Jalisco Jan. 27 - Feb. 3 2007. Well we're back in Winnipeg with 40 below weather! Great, rather be back on the beach in Mexico!

My husband and I stayed at the Riu Jalisco from 03-17 Jan 07. To be honest I thought that we got value for money. We have stayed at the Riu Palace and also the Iberostar but we paid more for those holidays therefore expected more. I thought that the grounds were amazing and everywhere was kept exceptionally clean. The staff... More

Four of us went Jan 22-29 (2 in our 60's, 2 in our 30's). the hotel itself is very nice. Clean, nicely decorated, beautiful grounds. However, since we didn't tip (helloooo...ALL INCLUSIVE) the service we received was poor. The bartenders refused to add extra liquor (OR bananas) to the drinks, which were tasteless. You can also get really bored with... More

I recently stayed at the RIU Jalisco in Puerto Vallarta. I was there from Jan 20 thru Jan 27, 2007. If you want peace and quite, you won't find it here. The rooms have super thin walls so it's hard to fall asleep at night. Although the entertainment was good, it's too loud and goes on until the early morning.... More

Spent a one-week stay at Riu Jalisco from Dec. 22-29/06 with my Mom (elderly of 78). We travel a lot (min twice a year) and enjoyed this hotel but it needs finetuning to deserve a 5-star ranking that it pretends to have and promote. Personnally we would rather rank it as nice 4-star.
