I love the relaxed atmosphere of Puerto Vallarta and my "home away from home" while I'm there has been the San Marino Hotel for the past several years. The staff are helpful and charming and this year, I was touched to be greeted by one of them as I arrived by taxi from the airport. The "Hola", the genuine smile and the warm hug set the tone for a most enjoyable week. At check-in, our Junior Suite was not ready so Isabel, who also remembered us and greeted us as friends, gave us an upgrade to a Master Suite. It was beautifully appointed and very large with a big balcony overlooking the beach. Now for the food...the breakfasts were wonderful and the Omelette Lady has not lost her touch ! The lunches always had items one would expect to enjoy mid-day. The dinners, especially if there was fish on the menu, were for the most part fine. On a couple of occassions, though, there wasn't anything that really turned my crank. These times we went out to one of the many fine restaurants in the area...Fajita Republic with its beer battered shrimp was amazing. I realize that there are travellers whose expectations are sometimes of the charts and that they will not be satisfied with a hotel like the San Marino. To them I say "Stay in Nuevo Vallarta. For me, my refuge at the San Marino in the heart of the charming town is my choice and will continue to be so. Thank you to all the wonderful staff at the hotel for a relaxing week. I'll see you all again next year !!!!!
