Nice relaxing stayPosted Aug 13, 2014
Pros: Clean hotel, great staff and location
Cons: Get rid of the time share presentation
Location: Tours, dining, shopping and other activities are a 5 to 10 minute taxi ride. Beach and view were beautiful
Hotel was close to the downtown night life and port facility areas. Only 65 pesos one way taxi fare. Extremely easy to get taxis in this town. Everyone was very accommodating. Especially the bellhop, Sebastian. He and his other team members bellhops were always there when you needed them and were helpful with information. The pool and bar wait staff were excellent. Front desk personnel were great. The hotel is over 40 years old, but everything was in working order and clean. I messed up and went through my first time share presentation the hotel put on. It was just like all the awful rumors I heard about. Don't go to it. My wife finally calmed me down as I was ready to check out and go to another hotel, never to go to Fiesta Americana again. In any event, the overall pleasure I received from the people of the hotel let me have a really nice vacation. I just will not go to anymore time share/hotel club presentations. NEVER

Didn't meet my expectations based on TA reviewsPosted Jul 24, 2014
Pros: The view. The ocean and mountain views are postcard material. That and the weather is what draws North Americans to Mexico.
Cons: Allow customers to bring food an drink on premises. Make an ice machine available to guests or place refrigerators in the rooms.
Location: If I returned to PV, (unlikely), I would pick a hotel closer to the Malicon (about 4 miles south) where everything is in walking distance.
The hotel was nice but I expected more based on the tremendous reviews I read about this place. Hotel was very clean and all service providers did an excellent job. Drinks and food were ridiculously overpriced for Mexico and even as compared to the states. We did eat it one day (which was the only meal we ate at the hotel) and it was okay. I booked my room through Expedia and at the time of booking it stated the following and I quote; " Superior room, ocean view, includes free room upgrade" I was never able to identify what either meant. At the conclusion of our vacation I figured out we had the most basic room you can get (2 double beds). At check in we were told we were on the 2nd floor. I asked to get moved to a higher floor and was told that would cost more. What a turn off. All rooms face the ocean on this hotel and as stated my "select room with a free upgrade" was the most basic room one can reserve at this hotel. Another turn off at check in they make you sign a form stating you will not bring food or drink onto the premises. I signed it. That evening I witnessed numerous locals bring bags from the grocery store back to the hotel, I did the same the following days and was not questioned.

Nice hotel, beautiful beach, wonderful staff!Posted Jul 23, 2014
Location: Swim with the dolphins, great experience! Challenge your body, your mind and your spirit getting Fly Board at Vallarta Adventures with trainer Chilo!
Chief Concierge Paloma Bravo is the best! She makes you feel like you are Royalty, she takes care of every single detail and makes you feel like this is home. Gume the waiter at the Snack Pool bar was the man! He has been working for the hotel since ever and perform his job with the first day happiness. Gabriel the waiter at bufett breakfast is awesome, not only great service but attention to details. I was choking with my vitamins and he brought me a glass of water in seconds, he save the day! Our maid kept the room immaculate! The beach is beautiful and kids can swin all they want safely. Food was really good and drinks yummy! My stepson, my husband and I had an unforgettable stay. Thank you Fiesta Americana crew!

Pros: The physical beauty.
The Hotel was beautiful. Most of the employees were very nice. However there was a concerted effort when I checked in NOT to honor my agreement and try to charge me a higher rate. They tried to hustle me into seeing other properties, contributing to a charity which I don't really know even exists, and trying to charge my AM EX card in advance for an unreasonable amount for "sundries". Also when I checked out I had been charged money for another room and I had to correct that on the bill.

We had a wonderful stay except;Posted Jul 11, 2014
Pros: Staff and scenery. The pool was great.,maid service was wonderful and all did a great job of helping us with anything we needed.
Cons: Keep the time share people out I guess.
When we met a time share man named Jesus at the hotel who was wonderful and then met his boss named Francio (the Boss for a couple of days we found out later) he was rude and got angry when we would not buy into the time share thing and scared me (I am the wife typing this up). I ended up pretty scared and cried as he got angry and yelled at us and emberrased us in front of others that were in the room. Otherwise, the hotel staff were wonderful people. Loved meeting the manager Monica, Lia and Carlos who all made it much better and I was able to calm down and not be afraid of Francio doing anything. So all in all we enjoyed the hotel and staff very much. Advise, just don't deal with Francio.
