OK so I was reading all the reviews 5 months prior to going. So they were good for the most part. These are the things I wondered about before going: 1. The staff were were so accommodating. Always greeted with hand over heart by 99% of them. My friend Hugo was always especially helpful. 2. We had a master room...

This was our second visit to Sea Garden... a Vidanta resort but slightly removed from their typical " lock you in don't let you escape " formula Sea Garden is near the NV Marina and is quite small. And unlike most Vidanta resorts you can walk to any number of local restaurants and bars and can even catch a bus...

The Sea Garden/Ocean Breeze is a very well maintained modern hotel directly on the beach in a quieter neighborhood of Nuevo Vallarta. The front-line staff are excellent and are very well versed in English. The service we experienced by all employees was impeccable throughout the complex. The room we had is a junior suite with a king bed in the...

Beautiful area, property is older than the other Vidante properties, but the building is well kept. Definitely quieter as well. Only two food options on site, but we were so close to off site restaurants it didn't really matter. Staff was great in all areas, always friendly. Overall, a fantastic experience.

The Bell staff was very welcoming when we arrived. At reception Ivan was very efficient checking us in which we appreciated after a long travel day. Our room was very clean thanks to Alma. We had a great view of the ocean and pool. Our room was equipped with all we needed to prepare meals (we like restaurants for supper)....

The experience with the Joy Squad was excellent. Especially good were Abimael, the leader and Joanna, Juan, Ivan and Tony. They were so helpful, personable and made everyone want to continue to return. LOVED the pool exercises and the pool relaxation. I would recommend them to anyone. A great team, a team that should be kept! Next time I'm there,...

The Sea Garden is part of the Vidanta resort but separated by less than 100 meters. Having stayed before at a Grand Luxxe we weren't sure what to expect but were pleasantly surprised. Unlike the Grand Luxxe the valet parking was right behind the Sea Garden making the day trips we took to Bucerias, Rincon de Guayabitos and Puerto Vallarta...

Reviews of the Sea Garden seem to be all over the map!! You wouldn't even suppose they were speaking about the same property! One week a guest gives a 5-star rating, with positive comments. Within a week or 2 before or after, you'll find another guest rating it with 1-star and the distinct impression from their comments, they would have given it a -0 rating had that been an option. I also could not help noticing the "socialmediamanager"(?) seldom responded to the most negative reviews/comments and even when replying to the more favorable reviews, seldom addressed the specific concerns or issues the guests raised! Overall, I found his/her responses about as helpful as a load of bricks on a sore toe!! Would really like to know if previous/recent past guests' concerns/complaints/problems/issues have been/will ever be remedied. If so, in what way? For example, is true the only means by which one is given a decent room is by agreeing to go on a T/S presentation? Is the front-desk staff friendly and helpful or not? Are rude staff members taken to task for their behavior towards their guests? Is wifi now available at no cost or @ less than $25.00 US per day? Are the rooms clean and modernized or dirty and dated? I realize the reviews are all subjective in nature, but there are some minimum standards common across the industry, aren't there? Assuming anyone does actually offer a an explanation of sorts or not, I personally am locked into a visit here early next Spring willy-nilly, but I would however, like to forewarn my potential traveling companions what to expect! Thanks :)
