Costa Club Punta Arena
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Our OpinionA fairly basic hotel, but good value for your money. The Costa Club Punta Arena very popular with Mexican vacationers so it's not totally geared towards foreign tourists. However, this does make it a good place if you want to practice your Spanish, not so good if you want to avoid language barriers. Costa Club Punta Arena is a good middle of the road hotel that is close to downtown. If you are looking for a 3 star, it is not a bad choice.
OverviewFor those who prefer the comfort of an apartment, this 3-storey small and friendly complex has recently been renovated and is situated in Vallarta's hotel zone.
Location: Just a short 2 minute walk to the beach on a private walkway, 5 minute drive from downtown, 15 minutes from the airport.
Our room was comfortable. We enjoyed the food. outside snacks were great The beach and water was near to enjoy. Sightseeing on the bus was an adventure.We could also go for walks to view interesting things about Puerto Vallarta.We enjoyed seeing a large rubber tree.
Spent a week there in Jan 2017 with family (kids 11 and 6). Pros:- Very clean- Friendly service- Central location (15-min walk to downtown)- On the beach- Low all-inclusive priceCons:- Food is just average and only two restaurants are available (all-you-can-eat and a-la-carte that works evenings only)- Basic accommodation- Entertainment is lacking (mostly in Spanish to cater to local majority visitors)- Abandoned hotel nearby ruins the experience- Kids club didn't work due to construction- Wifi is weak and usually not working
We stayed at this hotel for a week. The price was fantastic. The food was good providing you get to the buffet early enough. Seems to be slim pickings later. Drinks were great. Service was good. Room was clean. Pool was very noisy, but we quickly located the adult only pool above the Italian Restaurant. It was small but lovely. The ocean was just ok. I prefer the Caribbean side as opposed to the pacific. Construction happening which was nice to see. Empty half built building blocking view of the ocean, but hey what can ya do. The best two things we did was a tequila tour. We went up to the mountains to the tequila distillery. Was fantastic. We also did the Pirate cruise. We went on the night time one and it was the best night ever. Loved it.
Costa Club in Puerto Vallarta is best described as a hidden gem.The setting is beautiful. Sure the resort is old and well worn but it runs like a well oiled machine. The price is right. The food is very good. Right from the front desk staff to the ladies tiding and cleaning the rooms the entire staff are wonderful. Particular cudos to Paulo and Edgar in the dining area and to Iggy in the Italian restaurant . Real professionals. We had a wonderful stay at Costa Club thank you one and all. P.S> We even got to see a turtle lay her eggs on the beach at the resort.
We booked as this was somewhat of a last minute vacation and we wanted a deal. We also do not spend much time at the resort as we visit surrounding towns and friends - we also like to eat at the restaurants off the resort.We stayed in Tower 3--would have liked to been closer to the pool but this Tower was close to the lobby. We had a king size bed - room was very clean and supplies always stocked up.The grounds, the rooms, pools, eating areas were very clean and the staff were just outstanding.It is an older resort but overall a very nice stay with absolutely wonderful stay. We hung out at the adult pool most of the time--its very quiet and nice area - no kids during our time and the resort was very busy with families and kids.
