There was no rope around the beach chairs so peddlers were constantly bugging you to buy things. I don't think I ever went 5 minutes without being bothered! Even when we were eating dinner, the peddlers came right up to the restaurant if you were on the side closest to the beach and bothered you. It was very annoying and hard to relax for this reason.
The buffet food was very poor. Fruit was only offered at breakfast, and it was the same melons and pineapple every day. The fruit was not that great either, I could have gotten the same quality of bland tropical fruit in Canada.
The Sunset restaurant was okay. Some nights very good but other nights the food was cold. Often you would order a dish and it would not include all the ingredients listed on the menu. Ex) a salad with avocado that came with no avocado or onion soup with cheese and a baguette that lacked cheese and a baguette.
The resort website made it sound like there were 3 restaurants but there were only two - the buffet open for all meals and the Sunset restaurant open for lunch and dinner. The "third" restaurant was only open for a couple hours daily serving hamburgers and hot dogs. No snacks were available throughout the day.
The staff at this resort were all very kind and friendly.
We originally chose Puerto Vallarta because we were told it was less touristy than the Caribbean side of Mexico. I found this not to be the case; I was pestered so much as I walked along the street or boardwalk.

Came as a spring break location. It was mostly families and not college kids. Not too crazy but thats fine depending on what you're looking for. though the clubs nearby were alot of fun. Drinks were not great. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Very beautiful location. The food was pretty good overall. Rooms were very spartan, only two outlets, some of the lights did not work, beds were hard, no real storage in the room. The staff did a pretty good job cleaning the room back to its initial condition every day even though the room was not the best to start with. The pool was in very good condition. Overall the resort was very nice.
I found a bed bug on my after getting home. Hopefully it was just the one but i quarantined everything i took on the trip from the apartment. Its possible it got on my some other way but the hotel was the only place i slept.
The price for our stay was very low, particularly to be all inclusive guests for 4 days 5 nights. Staying there was a ton of fun and i can in no way say i'm dissapointed overall. My rating are compared to what would have been "ideal" at the best hotel. Definitively I got what i payed for and then some, and it was great being there. Though there may certianly be much nicer places if your willing to spend more but Las Palmas was a very good value and a very good time.

This hotel is good for families with kids. The rooms have a kitchenette and they have a small kids pool. The staff is friendly and helpful. Our air conditioning was not working and they fix it right away. There's a lot of iguanas walking around the garden.

Because of the surrounding resorts, this area’s beaches are among the most crowded in Puerto Vallarta. Playa las Glorias’ gray-sand beach is popular for boating and parasailing. Around hotel row, street vendors hawk silver jewelry and other small souvenirs. Nearby, daily soccer matches take place at the municipal sports stadium, which also has a top-notch track and field facility.
