The food was not as good this year as last year, mainly lunch and dinner options. Still a great deal, we will just eat outside of the hotel more next time.

This is the second time I’d stayed here. The first time was great. The second time now a few years later the place was horrible. The facility is horrible. The beach, what beach? The staff well I can’t speak for all but most of them horrible. Very disappointed.

The Resort is located smack dab in the middle of downtown and just seconds from the Malecon Boardwalk, which has so much to see and do. When you check in they will have you sit down and talk about their "Members" option (Time Share). Honestly, I wasn't interested and was glad a friend had already told me about this. Check in is at 3pm, but fortunately they give you your wrist band as soon as you arrive and you can enjoy the amenities until your room is available. We got the Honeymoon Suite and it was so worth the $30/night extra, for a great room with an amazing view. The adult pool with the loungers in it is a great touch. Understanding what times meals are and where you need reservations and where you don't wasn't clear in the beginning. Honestly go to guest services, and they are very kind and will help you understand anything your unsure of. Reservations are made between 10 and Noon at guest services for that evenings meals if you chose to have a nice sit down meal outside of the buffet location. If you want to go on an adventure (ZipLine, Snorkel, etc...) I would suggest setting something up with the desk next to guest services in the resort. This will guarantee your trip is legit. Lots of people on the street want to sell you an adventure, but you should be careful about what is legit and what is a scam. Honestly, my trip through the resort was cheaper than I could have ordered it directly from my vendors website. All in all it was a great resort...

We had a good time here! Everything was very clean and the staff was so nice. We’d be laying on the beach or at the pool, then staff would be quick to ask us if we needed another drink or food. We felt very safe here as there was security that would walk around and lot’s of families with kids. We weren’t a big fan of the food so after a few nights we ended up venturing out into Puerto Vallarta downtown for something else. The reservation for the a la carte was sub par. It was the same menu every night and the options were okay. Drinks were watered down too and were okay. Even though rated a 4/5 star hotel we’d probably give it a 3/5 star.

Beautiful grounds and very close to the Malecón and shopping. The food was great but did not like that they aren’t always open in the buffet restaurant at least. And that they open kind of late, for you to eat breakfast before going on the excursions. The beds were comfortable and room were clean. Would go back.
