The elegant lady is starting to show her age but still one of the best I have been to based on the staff and proximity of things to do and great places to eat within 1/4 mile. Ernesto is a great person to visit with and he goes out of his way to help you with advice.

The new building is great. Rooms are very nice. Shower everything is good. Staff is nice. Only minus is not enough chairs around the pools and the amount of pigeons and birds in the outdoor buffet area. And don't leave your chair unattended to go to the bar or buffet. Things will go missing.

Best time to take a vacation to Puerto Vallarta

Sporting a tropical climate, Puerta Vallarta's average temperatures range from the low 70s to the low 80s. Heat spikes are common in August and September when the mercury can climb well into the 90s. Winter is driest, and February and March are sunniest. Temperatures climb from July to mid-October when monsoon-like rains are common, especially at night.
