    Great Views, Nice Neighborhood

    The views are fantastic and the breakfast buffet is excellent. Surrounding neighborhood is very nice and if you walk a few blocks south west down Avenida Tepeyac, theres some great little restaurants and shops. Pool area is nice and the rooms are comfortable.

    Best place to stay in GLD

    Located in the heart of GDL. From the minute you walk into the hotel the services was great. Extremely helpful staff. I can’t wait to go back again and stay at RIU. 20 minutes from Zapopan and 25 minutes from the airport with no traffic of course.

    Was excellent!

    I was there with my wife on our way back from visiting a Christian church that is under our fellowship in Autlan Jalisco, we visit them at lease once a year, this was our first time staying at Riu, we have stayed in several hotels in Guadalajara, but from now on, this one will be our favorite one. Everything was great. Special all the staff at the front desk. God bless every one. Pastor Reynaldo Leal Bell Gardens Christian Church/Iglesia de Jesucristo Inc.

    Best in Guadalajara

    I stayed 4 nights at the Riu plaza, booked by my client, everything was fantastic from the food (buffet breakfast) to the room and the service, I didn't try the SPA and swimming pool because I was on a business trip, I recommend this hotel for anyone traveling to Guadalajara.
