Fiesta Americana Puerto Vallarta
- What's Included
Experience leisure through the services and quality that are trademarks of Fiesta Americana hotels. A beautiful fun-filled resort situated in the main hotel zone offering welcoming comfortable facilities, great dining, and lively bars designed to please every type of guest.
Location: On a wide beach over-looking Banderas Bay, 10 minutes from downtown, 15 minutes from the airport.
We enjoyed our stay at the fiesta americana. the good: the staff was friendly and always willing to help. as for food, the breakfast and the ceviche bar were our favorite place. gume, the waiter at the ceviche bar was funny, helpful and a lovely person. the evening restaurants were adequate, but we often ended up going in to town and really enjoyed our meals in town. I liked how close to town the hotel was.wishes: the beds were larger. there were more activities for teens. there were more beach, water activities.
My girlfriend and I just completed our stay at the Fiesta and had a great time. The food was excellent and the staff went up and beyond. The only negative I had with the hotel was the evening entertainment I felt was lacking.
Ok so im almost at a loss for words when it comes to this resort. Really need to thank our travel agent Angela Lacy from whatatrip and Fiesta Americana Manager Mike O' Farrell who made this bachelor party weekend such an amazing memory. I am a huge Sandals resorts fan, ive been to Cancun and other types of all inclusive resorts and this one takes the cake. Yes it beats Sandals in a lot of ways. I literally don't have one single negative thing to say about this place. Lets start with some of the basics.The resort is a 8 min taxi ride from the airport and cost us I think 250 pesos to get there (higher costs due to federal airport fee). It is a 4 min taxi ride from cruise port. As we arrived the resort, 2 bell staff rushed down and grabbed our bags from the car and gave us a tag for them. We where escorted to the check in desk and checked in with Cristopher. He advised us we had been upgraded to to the 7th floor and the manager had given us access to the 8th floor Fiesta Americana members floor. The next words out of his mouth was what ever person wants to hear "Can I offer you a water or cold beer?".... My answer.. HELL YES.. that alone we knew to expect a crazy great weekend. We got to our rooms to find a bottle of champagne there with a note from our travel agent and the hotel manager welcoming us to the resort. Not 5 mins later a knock on the door and there was a cheese platter being delivered to us as a gift from the our travel agent and the manager. WOW it was so nice. The rooms where nice, beds where super comfortable and our rooms had a great view of the beach and pool. Now the rooms could use a little updating, they are slightly dated but we didn't care at all. They also came stocked with a mini fridge (beers, water, sodas) and a fruit platter. Room service menu was also there and was free. We ordered burgers, nachos, burritos, and pizza multiple times. Also we called one day and asked if it costs to deliver mimosas which they told us no and brought us 4 mimosa at no charge. Wow first time ive ever been to a resort that delivers alcohol on demand. Huge TIP for that guy. Bathrooms had nice tile and glass doors, with toiletry amenities. A/C was ice cold. From talking to the manager Mike I was told the resort converted from just a hotel to an all inclusive about 3 years ago. Meaning all the restaurants and bars use to come at a price. Well since they converted to an all inclusive, all the bars and restaurants have kept the same food integrity and quality. I can without doubt say everything we ate we LOVED. no that's not an exaggeration, literally EVERYTHING was so good. I admit I am a food guy and this resort won me over just with the food. The ceviche was amazing along the shrimp tacos. It was some of the best quality ceviche and beer battered shrimp tacos I've ever had. I would easily have paid for them they where that good. I was walking from the pool the cevicheria when a pool staff employee (Miguel) asked me where I was going. I told him that I was going to get some shrimp tacos and ceviche. He insisted that he would get it for me and that I should go back to relaxing by the pool. Wow I couldn't believe how incredible the service was, I felt like royalty. Another time I went to the pool side grill and grabbed a cheeseburger and fries. The cook tossed on a burger and cooked it right in front of me. It was a damn good burger to be honest. For breakfast they had a HUGE buffet every morning or some days some restaurants and a breakfast menu. Room service was always an option, and room service breakfast menu was extensive. Anyways the buffet was prob our favorite meal option. They had quesadilla grill, omelet/ egg station, pastries, huge assortment of waffles, pancakes, French toast, bacon, sausage, Mexican breakfast options, hashbrowns, and the list goes on and on. Endless options. I might also add the coffee was really good too which surprised me. For dinner we one night went to the Asian restaurant and had some sushi, pad thai and Korean beef. All was exceptional and service was great. Another night we attended the "Mexican Night" in the conference center. The hotel went all out with live entertainment, taco stands including fresh pastor tacos, tamales, churros, carnitas, and just everything you would ever want. Our saddest moment was that we missed out on going to the Italian restaurant which we heard from everyone was their #1 restaurant. We also missed the Mexican restaurant but we did hit the Mexican night so we weren't to mad about it. The bars had a huge variety of drinks, beers, cocktails and wine. I found out the mango margaritas and double don Julio margaritas on the rocks where my favorites. I did enjoy a nice glass of Johnny Walker black and a cigar one night. The beer selection is amazing. Pacifico, Corona, Modelo, Sol, Tecate, Bud light, Dos Equios and a few other tap beers. Most beers come in cans but sure tasted great. Plenty of drinks at the lobby bar which was open until 1am every night. The champaigne and house wines where pretty good to. Great for mimosas. The pool was huge and never felt crowded. We spent hours there relaxing and sitting at the pool bar. Pool bar staff was great, and fed us plenty of shots lol. I saw them make multiple smoothies and shakes for the kids that where there too. Finding a seat by the pool was never hard and cabanas where around for rent. Pool staff was always around to take food and drink orders and was happy to do so. I literally don't think I ever waited more then 2 mins for a drink or more then 5 mins for a food order. The staff NOT ONE TIME ever pushed for a tip or stood there waiting for one. Yet we tipped every staff member for their insane service. The beach was really nice and full of lounge chairs. Water would get a little rough toward the end of the afternoon, but beach was not crowded. Yes there where vendors on the beach, however they where not pushy at all. One vendor was selling mangos on a stick and pineapple drinks (which IS A MUST). The sand is nice and white but does get hot so wear sandals. The hotel lobby has this cool, dim lit, sexy vibe to it. It is full of water features, plants and rocks. There was a few shops, a coffee shop and bar. The shops sell basic souvenirs, cigars and other essentials. Coffee shop has pastries, coffee and high end champagne (for a purchase). Most coffee and pastries are free, but some do have a cost. The lobby really is a nice place to just sit and relax.Ok now here's where its got really amazing. THE SPA.. The Spa at Fiesta Americana is something out of this world. It is such a relaxing, sexy, cool, tranquil area. It is completed with a hot sauna, steam room, and plunge pool area. We relaxed there for about 3 hours and also got dip tissue massages. This was by far the best thing at the hotel. I would almost insist everyone who stays here should check out the spa. It is so nicely constructed and modern, I could have spent all day there. The Spa was our favorite thing we did. The resort is family friendly, has a kids zone, kids club and teen club, however there didn't seem to be very many kids there at all. I was worried when I booked about kids but they where not a problem at all. The resort is building a new restaurant with a top deck infinity pool and lounge chair area for adults only, but that wont be completed will end of oct 2017 early nov. The photos look awesome I cant wait to check it out. The construction was not loud and did not disturb us at all. Not sure I missed anything but this place is the GEM of PV. I don't think I would ever even consider staying anywhere else when I go back, I want to stay here again! I cant say enough about the service of every employee and the hospitality we endured. This place is somewhere so special and I cant wait to go back.
Great place to go with a family. It was close to all amenities and the food on the resort was excellent.Entertainment everyday and lots of activities for all ages. (from aqua form in the pool to tequila tasting)The beach are great water can get rough at time
This was our third year in a row staying in the Governor's Suite on the 7th floor. Wonderful suite with windows on all three sides, and views of pool/beach, downtown, and mountains. We had a small refrigerator that was stocked with water, sodas, and beer every day. You can also get 24 hour room service. Maids kept rooms in very clean condition, and stocked with plenty of towels and shampoos. Our housekeeper was Veronica and she was very good, and nice to talk to in passing. Food:This year was a little different in that the Chula Vista restaurant is torn down, and will be replaced by a new enclosed air conditioned restaurant. The hotel did a great job in still providing the same great meals without Chula Vista. Shout out to Wolfgang for all his hard work as the food and beverage manager. He is on site all the time, and does a great job of making sure everyone is happy and well taken care of. Mexican at El Mexicano, Italian at Rosato, Asian at Tiantang (although we never had their food), and Seafood at La Cevichiera. Outside grills are also provided in the afternoon. There was a large variety to choose from. Shout out to Sergio, Victor and Carlos for their great service to us at breakfast and lunch. Wonderful, hard workers who make being there a lot of fun.Beach and pool service was wonderful and provided to us by Luis, Miguel, Angel and Rafi. They are very hard working waiters and all have great personalities.Activities:We enjoyed watching the water aerobics, and playing blackjack with Noemi and Ashley each day. Tanya is everywhere and a very special person who is always watching out to make sure guests are happy. Thanks to Fabiola in the lounge bar for doing a great job and being so nice.Future:There currently is construction noise going on, but for the most part we did not find it too bad. We look forward to returning next year, and it will be interesting to see what the new restaurant with an adult only infinity pool is like.Overall:Hotel is only a short cab/bus ride to downtown and the Malecon. There is a high end shopping mall within walking distance from the hotel which we enjoyed a lot. It is all outdoor, and has many fountains. It is called La Isla. The beach is very safe, and I was not afraid to walk it every morning alone. Plenty of people around, even early in the morning.I got sick while waiting for our return flight home, and we had to return to the hotel as I was unable to fly. The staff at Alaskan were very helpful, and when we returned to the hotel we were able to get our suite back for 3 additional days. I felt a lot better the next day. Wolfgang and Tanya were very caring and could not do enough to see that I was comfortable for our stay. They had the chef make me chicken soup, and got me Gatorade and anything else that was needed. This kind of extra service by all employees is what makes us return again and again. It is like a second home and family. If I have left anyone out I apologize because each and every one of you does a fantastic job.Below are some pics taken during our stay which I hope you enjoy.Cons:The only thing that the hotel could do to improve guests stay on the beach is to have security there more often as there was a few aggressive vendors who ignored the rope, and came over and sell you their goods. Mainly the guy who was trying to sell fishing trips and didn't understand what no gracias meant. He is a pretty insistent character.
