RIU Jalisco vs. RIU Vallarta

My girlfriend and I are both in our late 20's and are trying to decide between the Jalisco and the Vallarta. We're both into the activities, water sports, and entertainment. I've been to several all-inclusives in Mexico and definitely appreciate when the hotel goes the extra mile for the the a la carte restaurants, shows, and disco. I would imagine the quality of the activities staff are fairly similar between the two hotels, but since the Vallarta is brand new I'm having trouble finding pictures / reviews. Has anyone been to both or heard anything that would make the Vallarta worth the extra $$?

The Vallarta just opened in late November. So other than the newness of everything, it will probably be less crowded than the other.

OK came back from the Jalisco last week, That was great if your into touring the bars in PV they have free taxis about 11.30 pm. The hotel was great. We did visit the Vallarta its very art deco, twice the size of the Jalisco and was very busy did not seam to have the nice / or as much garden as the jalisco. There steak restaurant was nicer though the buffet was the best i have been to and nicer than the ala carte

You may also want to post this question in the Nuevo Vallarta forum - you will probably get more response there. You can also read the trip reports and look at pictures.

Good Luck!
