Welcome to Fiesta Americana PV. The first thing we encountered was the warm greeting as we arrived. From there on in the service was top notch. We were on an early morning flight and had arrived at breakfast time. The front staff graciously gave us our bracelets, mentioning being a Westjetter gave us perks, and off to breakfast and the beach. Upon check in we were surprised with an upgrade to the first floor suite. Very nice! Our room was clean and comfortable. Many thanks to Magdalena for looking after us so well. The resort size and pace was totally inline with our expectations. The food was really good with just enough selection to keep things interesting. We really enjoyed our special beachfront dinner at sunset. The beach is huge and has a rope barrier to keep the beach mall separate. Swimming was fine but beware as the depth increases quickly! There are shallower approaches just down the beach though. We never had long to wait for a cool refreshing beverage to arrive. Big shout out to Miguel (Brad Pitt) and Rafi (In The House)! On our last evening dinner we were treated to the awesome 4 tier fire coffee. The best we've ever seen. There were a few minor issues (a strange odor in the stairwell periodically, it took 2 days to get a second lounger for our balcony, but we were mainly on the beach so it wasn't troublesome) but overall we really enjoyed our week long stay. We would say the number one thing about this resort was the fantastic staff and service, 10+.
This small all-inclusive has become one of my favorites. I stayed at the resort from February 8-15, 2017 with a group of five friends aged 50 to 70. Rooms: I stayed in room 231. The room was spacious with two double beds. Beds were comfortable with plenty of pillows. I had a partial ocean view as the view was obscured by the roofs of adjoint restaurants. There was a large sliding door with a small balcony which held two chairs and a small table. There was a rather large step up to go out to the balcony - an issue for anyone with mobility issues. There was plenty of storage space with a large closet and deep dresser drawers. The closet also held shelf space and a safe. There was an ironing board with iron and a hair dryer. The bathroom was adequate size. There was not a magnifying mirror. Floors are tile. There is a small fridge in each room, and is stocked daily with soda, water, and beer. (All included at no charge). My fridge was initially not working, but was eventually replaced by a working fridge. Air conditioning worked very well. Room was very clean.Staff: Very friendly and accommodating. Most spoke English, and those who couldn't made the effort to find someone who could assist.Grounds: Very clean and well maintained. Watch for the peacock that roams the grounds. There are some stairs/steps to navigate. While there are some ramps, they are very steep. People with mobility issues will have difficulty.Pool/Beach: I used the pool as I found the beach sand to be very course and uncomfortable to walk through. The pool was well maintained. It was spacious and never felt crowded. Service at the swim up bar was excellent. Drink service poolside was sporadic. They definitely did not have enough waiters. But, the waiters we did see were friendly. Lounge chairs were in short supply. I would be out to the pool by 7:15 am to find chairs, and most of the chairs were already claimed. They do not enforce their policy about reserving chairs - so be prepared to play the chair game. Large towels were provided.Food/Drinks: The food was plentiful. The buffet was open for breakfast and lunch, but was closed at dinner time. Instead, some type of themed meal would be served in the area around the pool or beach. The food was adequate, but was often cold. I am a fussy eater and at times had some difficulty finding food I would/could eat. There were a lot of dishes made with beef, pork, chicken, and seafood. There were definitely not enough options for those with dietary issues. The fresh tortillas were excellent at breakfast. Beans were served at every meal. Desserts looked much better than they tasted. Food at the Mexican restaurant was good and the drinks were delicious there. I liked the fried ice cream at the Asian restaurant. Don't waste your time at the Italian Restaurant. The food was terrible, and the service was slow. I did not try the seafood restaurant. The grill was a good place to eat during the day. They served all kinds of American style food...burgers, chili dogs, chicken wings, fries, etc. Resort-wide I found the booze to be very watered down. But, they will add more alcohol to your drink if you ask. Location: This was a huge bonus. Downtown/the Malecon was just a few minutes away by bus. The straw market, Wal-Mart and Vallarta Casino were a 20 minute walk away in the opposite direction. The new shopping village was just a couple of blocks away.Overall, the positives outweighed the negatives.Pros: plentiful food; friendly and accommodating staff; clean, comfortable rooms; great pool area; location; well-maintained groundsCons: shortage of lounge chairs and pool-side waiters; food options for those with dietary issues.I plan to return to this resort on my next trip to Puerto Vallarta.
I just got home (February 10th-17th, 2017) from a one week all inclusive stay at the Fiesta Americana Resort & Spa and I had to write a review. I have never written one before but I have to let people know how amazing this trip was! I traveled with my girlfriend and we both have the same opinions of everything. We arrived late the first night traveling from Canada and we were greeted and welcomed with open arms taking our carry on luggage up to our room. The front desk upgraded us from our original room to a bigger king size bedroom that was on the 5th floor with a fantastic view! Room amenities were more then we could ask for including 24 hour free room service! Food was amazing and service was great! Drinks and bars were great also and we tended to tip a few dollars where we felt was earned even though tipping isn't required obviously. This did help out for the few days we had at the poolside to the point where either we would get to the swim up bar and they would just know what we were drinking without even asking for our order or a server keeping our drinks constantly full! With the resort being much smaller then most all inclusives, the pool chairs selection was maybe a bit scarce but we never had any issues getting chairs each morning. We were usually up for 7am to get breakfast where we would put out towels and some items for the day. We also spent some days out on the beach which finding lounger chairs was never an issue whatever time of day it was that we went out there for. With our stay being over Valentines day we booked a couples massage for some pampering which was amazing! The staff there was over the top ( Elizabeth, Guadalupe, Luptia and the spa manager Laura Espino)! We got a 60 minute couples massage and a 20 minute body scrub for 90 USD each which in my mind is cheap compared to what a massage back home would be! Before the massage we got to enjoy some time in their sauna and steam room and relaxed in a private warm water pool. Then after the massage we got to relax in a private warmer water Jacuzzi where they served us some champagne and chocolate covered strawberries, FREE of charge at that! Very romantic and more then expected! Food was amazing with a great variety of restaurants (Asian, Mexican, Italian, seafood) with some sort of additional nightly service, BBQ or a valentines day special. We spent some days in town along the Malecon which was a cheap and quick transport from the hotel either by cab or bus (our choice typically) with the bus stop right outside the resort entrance. The evening nightlife wasn't that of typical resorts with there being some sort of act or whatever which was a bit of a shame but they typically had some band playing by the bar where you can still get up and dance. We usually went into town for the evenings we wanted to have some more excitement which was never an issue with us. Then on the morning of our last day we received a phone call from the spa asking if we had time to come down before we left and when we arrived there they had some parting gifts for us and wished us all the best for our travels and to hopefully see us again. I would highly suggest this resort to anyone looking for a resort in Puerto Vallarta whether it be for a couple or families. 10/10 in our minds!
Just got back from a two week stay at Fiesta Americana. Amazing! When we pulled up to the FA we were greeted with friendly smiles from everyone. Check in was a breeze thanks to Nalleli, Gustavo and Adriana. All were very professional and friendly. We had a room on the 9th. floor. What a view. Also on that floor there was a breakfast, lunch, dinner spot(heavy appetizers). It was a convenience if you didn't what to go downstairs to some fabulous meals. There were also cocktail, beer and wine there. It was run by waiters Rafael, Daniel and a waitress (please forgive me I forgot to write down your name). All were polite, accommodating and friendly. The hotel restaurants were terrific. They have a Mexican, Italian, Asian. All very good. Mariano at the Italian restaurant took very good care of us as we had a group of ten. Each of the restaurants had great meals. Our group went deep sea fishing and we caught some Tuna. We brought some back to the FA that they cooked for us. Talk about fresh from the ocean to our plates. It was delicious. Also at the FA there is a place by the beach you can order fish, fish tacos, burgers. I forgot the name. And there was a burger and fries station that had chicken wings to die for. We had a waiter named Angel that was very friendly. One of our pool waiters name was Ignacio (nickname Nacho). He was prompt, friendly and funny. On the beach we had a waiter named Raphael, who was wonderful. He was always there to help you. I think he was on non stop mode for everything. He remembered your name and your drink order. He was very likeable. Inside was the open air lobby bar. We were there for Super Bowl. The FA put on a big food spread in the lobby bar. They even put up a big screen TV in one section besides all the other TV's. The crew at the lobby bar did exceptional. They were Manuel, Daniel, Carolina and captain Emanuel Fabiola. The lobby bar also had really good live music. Also the hotel has shows on certain nights. The FA has different buffets on different nights outside that are delicious.One of the people in our group (Mark) stayed there a few times before and new some of the people who went the extra mile for us. He introduced us to Mariana who is a manager of the FA. She also would do anything to keep everyone happy for their stay at the FA. There was not one complaint in our group of 10. Which was a feat in itself. The hotel cleanliness, the great food, good drinks all the services I would have to rate a 10. Would I recommend the FA, that would be a Big Yes! Would I stay there again that is another Yes!
Been to Puerta Vallarta for 20 years and this has to be one of the best. Besides being reasonably priced the accommodations and the friendly people (Wolfgang and Rafael) and the rest could not do enough for us. Beautiful beach and pool with gorgeous views from the rooms that everybody loved. Food was good with variety of different foods every night for everyone. Definitely going back next year. You won't be disappointed !!
