Our vow renewal was on October 2, 2021 at the Riu Jalisco and other than the extremely hot weather, which the hotel can't control, it was perfect. Dinner was absolutely awesome--service was awesome--the officiant was awesome. Highly recommend for a budget friendly wedding or vow renewal.

We have stayed at numerous RIU resorts and this was by far the worst experience!!! The pool stayed disgusting I'm pretty sure it was never cleaned the whole time we were there. There was large clumps of hair in the floor drains, when someone removed they just left it on the side of the pool and that happened multiple days. bugs and debris littered the pool, was very gross! Pool light had fell out of the wall and was just laying on the pool floor with wires exposed. Swim up bar was almost impossible to use due to children sitting at the bar along with their parents when signs clearly state the stools by order of the government are not to be used. When you did get a drink it was so watered down you would have to order shots to pour into it to make it have anything in it. Also the service was horrible. some meals our group of 6 could eat together and the next meal at the same location we were instructed that was against policy. We would have to waive waiters down to get service. Almost felt like we were ignored due to being Americans, talking with other guest they felt the same way. The food was utterly disgusting, most of it was undercooked or overcooked and just plain bland. This was a lesson learned, you get what you pay for. This was our second vacation to an RIU this year and probably 7th stay total, but it will be our last!!!

Dear Guest, Thank you so much for staying with us at the Hotel Riu Jalisco. We appreciate you taking a moment to share your experience with us. Depending on the weather, and due to the location of our hotel, which is surrounded by vegetation, the presence of insects is unfortunately inevitable. Allow us to inform you that we work hard to keep them under control, since our grounds have extensive garden areas. We fumigate continuously all areas to keep insects away from our grounds. Please accept our sincere apologies for your disappointment with the issues you encountered during your visit. Your comments have been shared with our guest services team in case our standards have not been fulfilled at some point. We appreciate you bringing these matters to our attention! On the other hand, as a global brand with staff from all over the world, there is zero tolerance for prejudice or discrimination, and therefore our staff is instructed to serve and treat every client equally. We deeply regret that you did not feel as though you were provided with the hospitality and warmth, we aim to serve all of our guests and think is more about a personal estimate. It is a pity that you did not contact us during your stay. It is our hope you can give us another opportunity next time your travels bring you to the area! Respectfully, Hotel Riu Jalisco Online Reputation Manager

806571107 Purchased a round trip package from Guadalajara to Puerto Vallarta. Online Booking included one carry on-10 kilos, one 25 kilos. Which was part of package but coming back we had to pay for our 25 Kilos checked baggage. We were charged 49.00 dollars. What a ripoff. Next time I will book hotel and airline separately. Hotel rooms need remodeling/Pools needs cleaning/Horrible bed pillows. Delicious buffet and restaurants....give them a 10.

Dear texmex1234, Thank you for the time you have taken to write us about your experience in our hotel. We are glad you enjoyed our gastronomic variety; however, we are truly sorry to hear that you did not fully enjoy our resort. It is saddening to hear that the room was not to your satisfaction, and that you encountered some inconveniences that overshadowed your experience. We would have liked to have been informed about this during your stay in order to help you upon request with additional mattress toppers and pillows. It is our sincerest hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back in the future, so that we can provide you with a better experience. Have a lovely day, Hotel Riu Jalisco Online Reputation Manager
