not enough choices of places to eat. All needed reservations and with small kids along, that is difficult. More simple options for eating would be good

Amazing property beware of policy

Pros: Rooms with amazing fews
Location: It was a short cab drive to downtown.
The hotel was beautiful, clean and staff were friendly, helpful and overall amazing. However when I first arrived they could not find my reservations. It took them 25 minutes of calling around to finally figure it all out. Also I was told they would be putting a $250 hold on my credit card. This was not the case. The day I was checking out and received my bill which in US dollars was about $75, my card was declined. I just could not imagine that it was declined. I asked them to run again. Still declined. I called my bank and was told that The Hotel ran my card for $537 when I checked in. And had not reversed charges. It was a mess. Thank GOD I had a little cash on me to pay the $75, but left me with NO travel money home. I asked why the processed for $537 and no one seemed to be able to give me an answer.

Disappointing

Pros: the suite was very nice and roomy.
Cons: staff could communicate more with us as to what is available to do at the resort and what we were entitled to there as well as at the sister resort.
Location: not much
We missed our flight out of SFO due to multiple accidents on the bay bridge. We actually made it to the airport before the plane departed however United Air would not let us board. I purchased the travel insurance and called Travelocity to see how they could accommodate us and although the gentleman tried it took a very long time to get anything complete. The hotel would not accommodate us and they would not refund me my money for the day we were NOT there.

Great family vacation destination

Pros: The attentiveness of the staff
Cons: Improved Wifi, the only place our wifi would connect is on the outside balcony
Location: Vallarta Adventures has numerous excursions. Bucerias is a quaint town nearby that is an easy walk.
Our family of five enjoyed the 2 bedroom suite with more than enough space. Easy proximity to the beach as well as having attendants at both the pool and beach to set up beach chairs for us. There is a market nearby that you can get to easily via taxi to grab whatever food you would like for your stay. An easy walk to nearby Bucerias for authentic food and shopping. Massages on the beach. Overall, a great place for vacation.

Nice hotel next to the beach

Pros: The calm
Location: You can drive about 15 min to go to bucerias a small town next door for some authentic mexican food for cheap or 30 min to the main city.
Everything is was nice. It is definitely family oriented and for people who wants peace. It is not your party loud resort like their sister resort next door.

Best place in Puerto Vallarta

Pros: everything!
Cons: not a thing....don't mess with perfection.
Location: Location great. away fro the busy part of Puerto Vallarta but just a taxi ride to everything.
Our stay, from the hand message treatment and cool drinks upon our arrive to the attention to our prompt departure was exception. Rooms great. Pool facilities and hot tubes great. restaurants food selection and preparation outstanding. Spa experience outstanding. But most of all, the kind, friendly and professional staff make all the difference. We highly recommend this resort.

Nice Resort on the Beach

Pros: Location was great. Right on the beach. Only about 10 minutes from the Puerto Vallarta airport. The spa is also very nice.
Cons: Check in is a little slow. Food is good. Not as many options as some resorts, but enough.
Location: This resort is in Nuevo Vallarta, just north of Puerto Vallarta along Banderas Bay. There is parasailing on the beach.
I was looking for an all inclusive resort on the beach. This was perfect. The patio balcony overlooked the pool and beach. The room had a coffee maker, mini-frig, small hair dryer and an iron/ironing board. I did not convert any USD for pesos. Everything was charged to my room and paid for with my credit card. (The beach vendors accept USD.) The hotel staff was super friendly. Nobody bothered me about timeshares. For $15 USD, the resort got me a taxi to the airport. (When arriving at the airport, go completely out the front door of the airport and get a taxi to the resort. Only $35.)
