We stayed at the Riu Jalisco from Oct 7-14/06 and had a great time - 'we' being my sister and brother-in-law and my husband and me. We are all in our 30's. The grounds and facilities of the Riu are great - I'm not sure why people complain about the walking - it's really not all that far. I actually... More

There were five of us total, one being a baby that stayed at the Riu Sept 19-26th. We were very happy to find that most of the complaints that people had were a little over exaggerated. The grounds are as beautiful as all the pictures show and the rooms were just fine. Not fancy though and the beds are as... More

To enjoy a vacation I think you should concentrate on the positives instead of the negatives. We stayed at the Riu from Oct. 15-22, 2006. We were there for a wedding held on the beach that couldn't have been more beautiful. The price of the taxi from the airport depends on where you get it. Our friends took the airport... More

The beach and pool were why we were there, and they satisfied me, but the service and the lunch and dinner food was pretty bad, breakfast is Good. There is no waitstaff to get you a drink while sitting around the pool, and all they deliver at the buffets is coffee, I had to ask 3 times for a glass... More

As the last reviewer we too stayed in room 6140, spooky!!! Anyway we stayed from 30 Sep to 14 Oct and prior to going I had read some of the reviews on trip advisor and think some of the reviews were unfair. The entertainment at night was somewhat repetative during the two weeks and even the food but at the... More

I am a 45 year old single man who has been to Mexico about ten times in my life, 3 of those times to Puerta Vallarta. I was at the Riu from October 8th to the 15 of 2006. I had read many of the reviews before chosing this hotel and can say that I only have one complaint, that... More

We stayed at this hotel Oct 16-19 2005 for our honeymoon. When we booked this vacation it stayed we would get a special gift during our stay. Never received it! The room was ok.

Just back from five nights at the Riu. Great hotel for the money! This is a large property with 700 room, we were told it was 90% full, although no lines and plenty of beach chairs.

A group of four 21-24 year olds stayed at the hotel from the 1st Sept - 15th Sept. We travelled with first choice from Gatwick. It was a long flight going, 15 hours (including an hour stop at Sanford, Florida to re-fuel and also change cabin crew and pilots!) but thanks to the increased leg room and the up-graded entertainment...
