This property is about 40-60 mins, depending on traffic, from the airport and about 20-25 from downtown Puerto Vallarta. It’s gorgeous! The ocean is at the doorstep and I liked that the resort doesn’t share the beach with other resorts. The back is mountain and jungle so you get the best of both worlds. The rooms are beautiful and our balcony had an ocean view. The grounds are well taken care of and the pools were great. They have a kids pool, an adults only pool, and the pool with the bar. The only downside is that the pool closes at 8 pm. They should really consider closing at least at 10. The Tv’s could also be better.
The people & staff are just amazing and friendly. The food at the buffet could use some help.
It wasn’t the best but the restaurants are better. You just have to make reservations before hand. The alcoholic drinks are not good either. They’re watered down and don’t taste like nothing.
There’s a local bus that stops right outside the hotel and takes you into downtown Puerto Vallarta for $10 pesos one way per person (50 cents in US). It’s safe!
From the buffets front windows you’ll see people (locals) with boats. They’ll take you out cheaper than the hotel. We got a tour from Luis and his cousin, “el Guitarrin”. They were great! Highly recommend them.
Please remember to tip the staff! People here don’t make much money. We got all inclusive but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t tip. Plus the staff are so attentive you’ll want to.
