Sunset Plaza Beach Resort & Spa
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
I have been to Mexico a few times and was used to staying at bigger resorts with multiple restaurant options on site and a main grand buffet, so I was a little surprised to arrive to Sunset Plaza which has one main restaurant that was not a buffet and only 2 restaurants (one a deli, a and the other an Italian restaurant). I wasn't sure what to expect from it all but I was just happy to be on vacation and kept an open mind as I was there to attend a wedding and all of the other guests as well as the bride and groom were staying at the same resort. My fiancée and I arrived 2 days earlier than everyone else (Nov.9th-18th 2017) as we wanted an extended stay. We were greeted with glasses of champagne and was personally introduced to our butler Victor. Our room was a little small but we were able to upgrade to suite. There was a mix up so we weren't able to get the suite until a day later than expected but they made it up to us with chocolate strawberries and bottle of champagne which was a nice touch! The suite is well worth the extra dollars. After just one day we noticed the great qualities of this resort. We were not missing the buffet style restaurant we were used to as the food there was great every time! Instead of stuffing our faces we got to enjoy quality food with attentive service. Don't miss the dinners on the lawn with entertainment and themes every Tuesday (Mexican) and Fridays (Caribbean). Luciano, the Italian restaurant is amazing and have a different menu every night. Get the grilled octopus if you can! We went 3 times there and one time we requested family style dining for around 12 people. The only problem was that one person was vegan and his dishes was delayed from the rest of the dishes ( they were informed about this before hand) but the food was fantastic.Also, don't miss the ceviche bar they put out! And I forgot to mention there is a small flatbread restaurant which is also tasty.The wedding was on Las Caletas Island which was beautiful and if you have a chance please go there. It is a one hour boat ride and the food is unreal. We had a great time.My birthday fell mid week of the trip and my sister booked me a massage at the resort. It was one of the best I have ever had! I highly recommend it. the staff wished me a happy birthday as well and I was greeted with another bottle of champagne, a piece of cake and roses!We found it to be a high tipping resort which we didn't mind as the staff always worked very hard and remember your faces. Richard in the main restaurant was great. He remembered what drinks you usually drank in the mornings and was always energetic and friendly. Victor was also wonderful and a nice familiar face to see during our stay.Some improvements that could be made are:-advertise the entertainment nights a little better. We missed part of one night because we were unaware that it was happening.- more entertainment nights! They are great!Another con is that there is a loud Vegas style resort next door and they blast their music most days and nights. Overall I truly enjoyed my time at the Sunset Plaza, I already miss my days by the pools, the friendly staff and the quality food. I would recommend this resort to anyone visiting Puerto Vallarta. I've met many other guests who were returning there for vacation and were regulars. It was a great atmosphere and we felt at home during our stay. Thank you Sunset Resort for a memorable stay!
The Sunset Plaza in Puerto by far that was possibly the best vacation I have ever had we were met with champagne, warm scented cloth and back massage just to release the tension of the airplane and say oh we’re home. From that point on everything was perfect. Javier made sure that our every wish was granted. Our butler the waiter the pool boy , they anticipated our every need and treated you like family they look you straight in the eye I remembered it was almost as if they anticipated your every want. The food was fantastic every morning the waiter knew what we wanted brought our coffee .They have a wonderful pizza place a deli that serves desserts which are my favorite every day. Luciano’s was fantastic. The spa services were unbelievably fantastic .Almost night on the lawn they had a different themed party with food entertainment Jamaican , Russian and of course Mexican. JAVIER the manager was fantastic just thinking of him makes me want to hug him he made sure everything was perfect. The views of the ocean more magnificent the grounds were impeccable. I do not believe I have enough words to describe , now our most favorite place in Mexico and I have been to Cancun,Matzalan , Manzanilla and Guadalajara now but my return will always be to the Sunset Plaza if you want a memorable vacation you need to go here you won’t find another Hotel that makes you feel like family and every one of your needs is fufilled with beauty and sincerity I cannot thank everyone there for making our time the best ever , we will return. We are in our late 60s so we’ve traveled extensively and this is our most favorite place we’ve ever been. Steve Hopkins and Sandra Lindgren

Without getting into too much detail, the resort was an absolutely enjoyable stay. The hotel was clean, the service was excellent, and the food was delicious. I would definitely recommend this resort to anyone going to Puerto Vallarta.
My wife and I came to get away and relax and that's what we did. The staff was absolutely incredible. Never waited on a drink, food was exceptional, rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. The views and sunsets were stunning. Already planning on coming back next November and bringing another couple with us. Big shout out to Yered for the awesome kayak tour and all the waiters. They all took great care of us, especially Antonio and Johnii!
