I stayed for 3 nights and had a blast. The property is kept very clean, all the staff I encountered were very nice. I didn't feel like the place was overcrowded and there was always space on the beach with chairs, it was difficult getting umbrellas but we didn't really care for them. The beach was kept very clean, it...

The weather was great. The room was nice. But was not very happy with the service or getting them to fill the little fridge in the room. Would not pay for premium there. Trying to book for supper was a joke. Always told it was booked. I had to call manager so my hubby and I could enjoy the la...

Nice place in the outskirts. Food is great but the place is small( cruise ship might be bigger). Staff is amazing and make sure you get the green juice in morning. The place has a small beach but it is not croweded. Food is great in local Puerto Vallarta. Especially seafood. Mexico is a clean place so don't worry that...

We went for during break 2016 and loved it so we thought we would return for 2017. The food was great and the staff friendly enough, the service was not near as good as the previous year.

We arrived late Sunday evening and was instantly greeted with a smile from Humberto the bellman and Christian at the front desk. This instantly set the tone for our next 12 days. We opted not to get the Premium package upgrade and had no disappointments by doing so. We booked through Westjet Vacations (Canada) and it included free wifi for...

We stayed 5 nights, arrived exhausted and very happy with our room. We had a room on 2nd floor and it was huge with a big porch with chairs and a drying rack. Bed was super comfortable and everything was clean and working, hot water took a little while to get hot. Overall pros: pool area with 2 hot jacuzzis,...
