Beach for miles

Very friendly staff, excellent buffet style meals. The hotel is about 30 min from the Malecon (downtown boardwalk) but I really like this hotel district north of the airport because if you like the water and walkable beach front this is where to go. I would not pay the transfer fee that are sometimes offered with the trip!!! It's more affordable to cross the bridge right outside of the airport and catch a cab that way. It's around $20 US dollars to most anywhere in the area. Usually there's kids or teenagers by the cab that will help load your bag. They are looking for work so be sure to tip them! PV is a very safe & friendly town. Take walking shoes & be sure to hit the downtown Malecon on a Sat night.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

About 30 min from the airport. Nice ride! (See notes above about grabbing a cab there rather than paying the transfer fee with the inclusive purchase. AND VERY IMPORTANT....after you go thru customs you will be a greeted by a whole bunch of staff that will try to give you maps and ask if you need a taxi....they are all timeshare people. if you want the best trip of your life, just keep going til you get outside THEN get a cab!!

Wonderful Service...Great deal!

Nightlife lacked excitement... A bit distant from Vallarta nightlife. However, the day activities and were excellent.

Exactly what was needed

Ok, enough of the negative negative negative....if u want a negative person to make a review, this is it! the place is NOT 4 star or 5 star, if you want that, then pay for it, but the place was fantastic. For what I paid for the trip I got all that I desired and more, the beach SPECTACULAR! You can swim in the ocean and walk the beach for miles, exactly why you go to the beach! The hotel is perfectly fine, had no problems with bugs or dirtiness, or things that would gross me out to the point I was uncomfortable staying there. The food was great and a variety enough that I was fine staying the 8 days and eating where I wanted and what I wanted. Plenty of entertainment and places to go and people to meet. I went alone for 8 days and came home with many friends. Great time! If you want maid service, a butler, and filet mignon, then pay the money for it. I almost didn't go here because of the reviews, what a mistake I would have made! See [...] the bartender, awesome!

Amazing!!!

Amazing Hotel & the "all inclusive" was worth every penny. Delicious food served every meal. Wonderful, friendly, talented, staff. Terrific service, Clean Rooms & Pool. Beautiful, scenic beach front with, many activities. The only thing that could have made it more enjoyable was a shuttle service to downtown and to and from the airport.

Nice "looking" from the outside...

While the beach looked very nice, with a wonderful frontage of the ocean, this resort seemed outdated with very few modern amenities for such an "upscale" all-inclusive "resort." It was almost impossible to do something as simple as make a phone call or access the Internet. While it's true that you are not there to spend the whole time in your room, there were only three English-broadcast stations. The "Sport Bar" had coin-op pool tables- in an all-inclusive resort!? The staff was extrememly friendly, but each department had zero knowledge of the other departments, making things very difficult.
