Riu Jalisco Review:

A huge all inclusive resort for singles, couples, and families. This is one of three Riu resorts in the area. It has a lower price and star rating, but many visitors feel you get a similar experience at a lower price compared to the other two options.

The buildings are ornate and the grounds are well manicured. The beach is big with plenty of chairs even though there are a lot of guests who fill this resort. The rooms are pretty standard with the usual Riu complaint of hard beds. If you want a softer nights sleep, ask for a pillow top mattress from the front desk or the housekeeping staff.

The food and drinks are good. The main buffet area has a wide variety and theme nights with special dishes. The only complaint about the food is that you need to get up early to make an evening reservation at a specialty restaurant and then when you go to the specialty restaurant, it is either a buffet style restaurant or dishes that are not much better coompared to the buffets.
