Riu Vallarta or Riu Jalispo?
Save

Does anyone know the differences between the two in regard to the beaches and noise level? We prefer a larger beach with enough loungers so you don't have to claim one by 7 am, and the ability to watch TV in the evening or to go to sleep at 10 pm, if we've had a long day, without being annoyed by screaming partyers and loud music.

They are within a 5-10 minute walk from one another. If price isn't an issue I would recommend the Riu Palace.

I have heard that the Vallarta is a bit quieter then the Jalisco.

The difference between the two is that you can utilize both resorts if you chose the Vallarta, except for dinner.

We have stayed @ Both... The Beach is Great @ Both with lots of Chairs Etc. We found the pool area @ Riu Vallarta easier to get chairs. (Maybe less people) Riu Vallarta maybe a little less partying? We are going back to the Vallarta in two Weeks! We really liked the Jr. Suites and the view. Never had issues with noise and we love to sit out on the Balcony!!! When are you going? I think you will enjoy either resort!

IMHO the Vallarta is more quiet, less kids and party people. Went to Lunch one day to Jalisco and Noticed it was More noisy, but still a nice Resort and food was good.

Beach is the Same, only a Condo unit inbetween. Loads of loungers at both.

Loud nightime people , you will get at Any Resort, they don't seem to Hear themselves. Lol
