Perfect in so many ways!!!

Posted Sep 25, 2014
Pros: I loved Food and beverage program, location, and lots of pools.
Cons: Maybe have food service at the pool (not just the beach) and lobby bar stay open later.
Location: Shops for all your needs near by, Malecon and downtown within walking distance and bus stops right in front of hotel.
Been to Puerto Vallarta many times, this stay is one of my favorites. The location is perfect, great beverages, spacious lovely room, several choices of delicious food.......Amazing pleasant and caring staff!!! Not much more to ask for great customer service and beautiful pools, grounds, and location...give it a try!!!

close to beach

Posted Sep 16, 2014
Pros: location food friendly staff
Cons: hotel is outdated, needs a major renovation
Location: very close to the beach and the boardwalk
The hotel is close to the beach and boardwalk. Food is alright for all inclusive, staff is very friendly. Check In took about 30 mins, they couldn't find the reservation. Hotel needs a major renovation. I personally would not stay here again.

great location and staff

Posted Aug 19, 2014
Cons: the hard sell for the time share - you have to go and find out about what is on at the hotel, and then you are offered discounts
Location: pools on site, or walk onto the beach. water sports available. can walk to shops or into the old town
right on the beach, and not too far from the boardwalk and old town. hotel staff were excellent - friendly, helpful, and very hard working. would definitely stay here again.

Excellent service, next to beach

Posted Jul 19, 2014
Staff was incredible. My only complaint is that the room doors are thin and All the outside noise comes in so it's hard to sleep at night. Other than that this place was amazing.

not what I expected

Posted Jul 1, 2014
Pros: location to boardwalk
Cons: everything
Location: close to stores and restuaraunts
when we ordered the room we had the anticipation that we would be getting two beds. We had a group of 12 guys and all of us had to share one bed in each room. The alcohol is watered down and not worth the all inclusive. the ladies at the front desk were rude and did nothing to assist our requests. DO NOT STAY HERE
