Local favorite for Mexicans

We only needed to stay one night. It was convenient and reasonably priced. Front desk personnel were nice and helpful. But the room is bare basics. You get soap, shampoo and lotion with large bath towels. No tissue, no hand towels for the sink. The sheets were clean. It was a busy week with lots of locals coming from all around Mexico. It was loud at night. It's conveniently located next to the marina. Overall, a good place if you want a clean place to just stay and don't expect much more.

Had a great time, the weather in Puerto Vallarta in February is outstanding!!!

This hotel is older, could use a few updates in the rooms but they are clean, the staff is great, food was really good on some days, ok on other days - I never went hungry, like having the Marina side and the ocean side - beautiful views, great vacation!

Ignore the Bad Reviews!

A friend and I made a quick trip to PV in February and decided to stay at Vamar Vallarta, overall it was a wonderful experience. Before arriving, I had concerns based on some of the negative reviews, but found most of them to be irrelevant. We loved the staff and the hotel exceeded our expectations. Here's what you need to know: There are a lot of Mexican families vacationing at Vamar, if you're worried about it, you should probably rethink your vacation destination. The ratio is probably about 75 Mexican to 25 North American/European travelers, everyone was very friendly. The food at the buffet is good, that beings said if you're a picky eater looking for perfectly Americanized offerings, that's not what you'll find here. You will find an exceptional breakfast every morning, a nice lunch at the snack bar near the ocean, plenty of authentic buffet choices and a quaint Italian restaurant. If you're hungry for something you don't see on the menu or buffet, just ask! The staff goes above and beyond to find it. The resort property is separated by a road. The hotel is on the marina side and the villas are on the ocean side, it's a 3-5 minute walk to the beach from the hotel. We found this arrangement to be the best of both worlds. Some tips: The entertainment does occasionally go into the wee hours of the night, if you're sensitive to noise, bring earplugs. Problem solved. Tip your housekeeper and you'll return to your room to find the biggest fluffiest towels and cute wash cloth shells. Use what Spanish you know, the staff is eager to help you learn the language and it's a great opportunity to practice!

price matchs comfort

Staff were great. Check in and out was easy. You get what you pay for and thats what we got and we knew it going in. Rooms are clean but need some updating. Bed was like an oak board,tub drain didn't work well. We have stayed before and would stay again. Great location and cheap.

Honest Review

Food is average at best, all buffet style no ordering of food and the 4 restaurants are only open one at a time. There is one 'Italian" restaurant but nothing close to being Italian food. The bread was stale as a croton and microwaved to be served warm. Drinks are bland with no real consistency of taste. No true mixed drinks minus those super basic kinds....nothing even close to Tropical beverages. No form of service at pools or hotel its all "get it yourself". Hotel furnishes NO bottled water for customers, only distilled water one plastic cup at a time. NO SPA or Weight/ Exercise rooms or service. No concierge service. No real beach available, the photos are of a SMALL shared beach about 1/2 a block away....sand is black and dirty. No internet....and if there is any you have to go through an onsite timeshare agent. Yes alcohol is included with stay and so is food, the hotel was very clean but missing basic services for an ALL INCLUSIVE. You get what you pay for, just giving you warning.

ew..seriously..Bad rooms

We left and went to another hotel on day 2. Go read other site reviews. This needs huge renovations, I almost felt like this place was unsafe to be at health wise. Grounds and pool were nice, staff friendly..that's it. Bedroom furniture is literally from the 60s and gross, bad garage sale pieces really. I felt nasty, this should be more like 1 star! The only thing all inclusive really, is food! There's like no entertainment or anything! Locals swarmed the place, which means they get discounts because they can't fill the rooms. To get to the beach you go across the street to their vacant property which is even more nasty. This room would probably be a 30$/night motel room if it was here. Rooms are like a tiny bedroom with tiny bathroom. If you care about room quality/cleanliness at all, stay away..worse than a truck stop motel. sweaty smelling linens...yum huh?! I just feel bad for employees!

Vamar Vacation

If you are looking for 5 star look elsewhere. If the rooms were updated then it would be a superb deal. If you are on a tight budget then go for it! This resort is very very affordable. We did not do all inclusive which was good for us as we like eating outside of the resort. However, dinner buffet for two runs about $32 and includes all the alcohol you can drink... Not bad. There are lots of great restaraunts around the marina which is right next to the resort. No need for taxis to get there. The prices are great at all the places around the marina.
