Holiday Inn Puerto Vallarta enchants leisure travelers with a bayside address and 200 renovated rooms with private balconies overlooking the beach. As a bonus, kids eat free at the casual restaurants and can participate in supervised activities. The on-site spa pampers from head to toe with hair and nail treatments and massages, while two tennis courts and a fitness center equipped with cardio machines invite guests to work out before hitting the sights. The outdoor pool captures picturesque vistas of the water.
Dining
Parents, take note: Kids eat free at Holiday Inn Puerto Vallarta, but Piaceres Restaurant, the on-site Italian restaurant with a formal dress code, prohibits children under 16. Still, choices abound for families, from fast-food favorites at Snack Pinocho to the all-day buffet by the pool at Guacamaya Restaurant. Los Mariaches Restaurant -- to the right of the lobby bar -- specializes in authentic Mexican dishes and tasty tequilas.
Rooms
Holiday Inn Puerto Vallarta aims for casual, coastal appeal in 220 renovated rooms. Blond-wood furniture complements plush white bedding atop king beds or two double beds, while floor-to-ceiling windows display the property's best asset: a location by Banderas Bay. Furnished balconies invite guests to linger before retiring for the night. Free Wi-Fi is standard, along with a pillow menu, satellite TV and a telephone with voicemail.
Property features
Holiday Inn Puerto Vallarta guests stay fit with a workout in the fitness center, which is equipped with treadmills, a stair climber and stationary bikes. The beach turns into an active sports zone, where guests play tennis on two courts and take a swim in the outdoor pool.

For tranquil downtime, head to the spa for massages and hair and nail treatments before relaxing in the sauna or Jacuzzi.

Perennial guest

We have stayed here every year for the past 5 years. Rooms on the north side are quiet with a view of the ocean. Rooms have really comfortable beds. Hotel is very safe. Pool side entertainment s silly. The hotel stopped providing complimentary morning coffee. Fitness facility is lack luster. Poor internet access. We keep going back due to the expansive beach and comfortable rooms. With the rate increases this year and the not so greaustomer service, we will be staying elsewhere next year.

Great Holiday again in PV

This was our 3rd time at the Holiday Inn and I can't wait to go back again next year. Our ocean front room had the most beautiful views. One balcony you looked at the shoreline all the way into downtown PV and the the other balcony we watched the sunset every night, it was just awesome. The staff were all excellent from the front desk to the wait staff. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Above our expectation

We had so so expectations but it turned out to be a good compact resort for the price, We would book again for a similar deal, Food was good (nothing fancy for the price we paid) staff , especially the room cleaning service was superb. One problem: there is not enough shade on the property for sunny PVR. Nevertherless, a good to excellent place

Winter getaway

Had a really great stay, we did not go all inclusive, or with Transatlantic, so did not get to learn about all the activities that are available at the hotel. The location is good, although we liked it down by the Malecon, but the beach and water by the Holiday Inn is great..would not hesitate to go to the Holiday Inn again...

Great Place, Food and Beverage not so good.

I found that they have great location, clean rooms, nice pool and staff. What was missing was the food was below par and limited adult beverages. This was an all inclusive two weeks and found that we could only go the buffet line for breakfast and lunch and not order off the menu. The adult beverages was only "well" drinks and not anythink else. The Mexican Resturant was not good at all and the Italian Resturany was good but we tired of it. The pool water was cold. The staff was great and the activites staff was Super.

Clean comfortable hotel

My family stayed Easter week and enjoyed it very much. Clean hotel with a nice staff, great pool and view of the ocean and Sierra madre mountains. Beach activities right by the resort and we always felt safe. Being from the united states, we were quite concerned when the state of Jalisco became part of the travel advisory warning but we walked over the place and took public buses and taxis and the locals were very friendly and helpful.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

The Vallarta zoo was very unique and a great place for families to go..you can feed lots of animals and even hold a spider monkey and tiger cubs for an extra fee.
