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.
My brother and I recently stayed at the Costa Club while in Vallarta. We had booked rooms on the last minute. The resort is older but is very clean. The staff were all friendly and the food was very good. We booked the all inclusive and the food wasn't your typical buffet style of food. There was a good selection daily and there were new types of food every day. The drinks were good and not watered down as they are at most all inclusives That I have stayed at. There is an area where some of the iguanas come to daily and they were interesting to watch and gave people good photo opportunities. I would definately stay here again. There are 3 pools with one being for adults only and the other two for families. We sat by the adult pool and there no kids in there as I have seen other people comment on. The staff checked on us regularly to see if we needed more drinks. It was a very relaxing stay.
The resort staff is wonderful, always there to please. Might I add Christian at the bar is very easy on the eyes...The resort is older just like most of Puerto Vallarto, but very clean and well kept. Would stay again as long as price is good. More entertainment would be nice, a hot tub as pools are cool, and bathrooms closer to the beach.Overall very pleased
The staff - absolutely fantastic! Housekeeping, grounds, pool staff, activities coordinators, bartenders, waiters at the buffet, front desk - everyone was so friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean and more than adequate. Not fancy but we loved it. We were in tower 11, ground floor with a wonderful balcony. Close to everything. It’s a smaller resort so all is pretty close anyways. They were completing the rooms above the buffet and they looked great for apartment type accommodation. 2 of the 4 floors were competed with patio doors and some looked occupied. Great views. We had the best beach of all the hotels where we were. The biggest beach by a long shot and lots of room to find your own spot. With the old cement building next door we had all that beach too. Some vendors came by daily but not too many and they were very polity and friendly. Bought some clothing, oysters, and coconuts. Buffet had great choices all the time. Always good salad fixings and fresh fruit. The breads were always over the top fantastic. Some of the dishes aren’t labeled correctly but we figured it all out. No complaints. Wait staff are amazing. Snack shack was open daily 11-6 and had burgers, pizza and Mexican chips and fixings. Also a bar.Bars for alcoholic and virgin drinks are 10-10 by pool & restaurant and 10-11 p.m. at the lobby bar. All drinks are free. We made up our own combos and tried lots of different blended drinks. Pools were clean and maintained well. Nice to have the option of the adult pool which we spent one day at. Once we got a taste of the interaction with the Mexican people at the main two pools, we were hooked. Loved that the resort had a lot of Mexican people there. So great to interact and learn from each other. Wonderful, friendly people of all ages. 5 minute cab ride to malecon (boardwalk) or you could walk there as well. 2 minute walk is a Mega store with everything from clothing to groceries. Really nice store. Special thanks to front desk Azael and Edgar in the restaurant.GO TO the Rythms of the Night. AMAZING boat trip, dinner and show.
This hotel exceeded our expectations in every way possible! The staff was absolutely incredible and went out of their way to accommodate us on multiple occasions! The meals and drinks were comparable to those of a 5-star resort and the Italian-à-la-carte was phenomenal. Although the facilities are older than other resorts in the area, they are very well maintained and everything was very clean and comfortable. It is a perfect destination for an inexpensive and relaxing beach vacation with all the great resort amenities! Quality price ratio was definitely above expectations!
This resort has everything going for it because of the staff- We were treated 100% amazing from the minute we arrived till we got in the taxi to leave! Willing to go above and beyond on every request, really really cared to see us have a great time. To name just a few of the exceptional wouldn't be fair as I feel everyone was AMAZING. Mexico is a very poor country, and we are very fortunate we can go there to visit and enjoy their culture. If you are looking to be in a gold plated star studded resort then dont choose here. If you are looking to meet wonderful people in a friendly environment this is it. The beach is right there,with a fabulous seating area and bar to enjoy. The big ugly huge empty building is horrible, but lets be real its far from the resorts fault it it there and there is still sun on the grounds all day long ! I hope all the same people are working there when we return next year !
