Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

My husband and I had a wonderful time back in January, and we come back august. The staff is really friendly and we love our maid Yanet, she made sure our room was spotless, we appreciate her very much. Looking forward to see Yanet again when we can back. Food service is excellent and the guys are always doing a great job.

Hotel's Favourite
We love Costa Sur. Every time we visit it’s been wonderful. The new bartender, Jefte, is very friendly and makes great drinks. The snorkeling right in front of the hotel is the best in the bay! The lagoon shelters the waves and attracts scores of different species of fish.

Just had a wonderful one week vacation at Costa Sur. The staff at the resort are awesome and will take care of your every want. My husband enjoyed the various activities, playing darts or cards almost daily. Okimy is the activities director who is extremely friendly and strives to make sure everyone has a great time.

We were visiting Nuevo Vallarta and we decided to extend our stay an extra three days and we found this place in the southern part of Puerto Vallarta. We are so happy we decided to stay, the staff was awesome, great food. there sort was away from the hotel area but close enough to El Malecón and other activities. Okimy our activity guide at the hotel was great we participated in some family activities including Dart and kayak. We will definitely be back

I’ve been going to this place annually every summer since I was 2 years old. My parents fell in love with it before I was born. While some years we’ve seen some setbacks or some years were less desirable than others, they always kept us coming back. The staff treat you as family and many of them know me still since I came my first time. They’ve actually seen me grown and see me as their own family. Between the love I receive from Fabricio, Juan, or Enrique when he worked there was wonderful and they always were there to talk to me and make me drinks both when I could not drink and when I finally could. Their new staff like Jefte and Okimi who I’ve only met this most recent year, are amazing additions to the hotel staff. Jefte has already started to join the type of relationship I have with the other bartending staff there. Out of all the activity directors who worked here, Okimi is definitely the best and most out going. He knows how to show everyone a good time and has so much positive energy, it’s hard to say no to any activity he has to offer. For 20 years I’ve gone here and I’ll be going here annually with my parents for the next 50 years if not longer if possible. It is not a fancy 5 star contemporary rich resort and hotel. It is a genuine resort in Mexico that isn’t touristy and is a taste of a more real Jalisco and real Puerto Vallarta. You don’t be disappointed.

Was going to wait until I got home but couldnt…yes this is a smaller and older property but we have been coming almost every year for 20 years and just signed up for another 50…the main reason is the staff…so amazing and attentive and they are like a second family to us…special recognition to Juan, Fabricio our special Bartenders who are amazing…..also shout outs to Moises, Alicia, osvaldo, Raul, enrnesto, juan quintero, reynaldo at front desk, erika at concierge, rafael just to name a few. Okimy is great too at the activities…the rooms all have ocean view and they make us feel like royalty….we are so happy that we can keep coming back as members of Club Costa Vida for years to come!

We recently held our wedding at Costa Sur on July 2, and it was absolutely amazing. Our group of about 55 people spent the week at the resort and had an amazing time. The location of the resort is perfect, and we took full advantage of the pool and private beach area. It’s also only an 8 minute drive from the downtown “Zona Romantica” which made it super convenient for our guests to venture out and experience the heart of Puerto Vallarta. Our coordinator, Jessica, was so helpful over the past year and made the entire process of planning a destination wedding super easy. Jessica and the rest of the team at Costa Sur truly created the wedding of our dreams, and it was better than we even imagined. Everything was so beautiful, and all of friends and family were blown away by it all. One piece of advice - definitely spend the money to add an extra hour to the reception. We made the mistake of deciding not to add it in order to save money, but the wedding was so much fun that we did not want it to end! Aside from that, we truly have no regrets. We’ve fallen in love with Costa Sur and will definitely be making several trips back in the future.

We stayed for three nights. The good: - the setting of the pool and ocean-front area is beautiful. - the location is good if you want to stay in the resort. - the servers and bartenders are friendly and helpful. - the food and drinks were good and reasonably priced. - Okimy the entertainment director is awesome - so friendly and energetic, and a talented poker dealer! The not so good: - the non-renovated rooms are very tired, and surprisingly dark. We even checked out a recently renovated room and it really wasn't that much better. Hopefully you won't need to spend much time in the room. - you can't really walk around outside the resort. To go anywhere you'll need to take the bus or a taxi. Would we stay here again? Maybe, if we just want to sit by the pool and look at the ocean.
