Our Opinion
A decent 3 star resort located in the Marina area. Vamar Vallarta is not on the beach but does have a nice pool area overlooking the marina. The beach is across the road. The food and service here is just okay, however the price point on this hotel can make up for it. Reviews on this hotel seem to be hit and miss. If you are looking for a 3 star resort and the price is right, this can be a good choice.

Overview
A unique all inclusive hotel set in one of the most appealing areas of Puerto Vallarta, the beautiful Marina district. Its ideal location affords a spectacular view of the Bahia de Banderas - the largest bay on Mexico's Pacific coast. Discover the rustic charm of Vamar Vallarta's 250 rooms decorated in a uniquely Mexican style, and take advantage of a host of activities and nearby facilities, which include a golf course, an open-air theatre, shopping centres, restaurants and discos.

Location: In the Marina district across the road from the beach, 15 minutes drive from downtown and 5 minutes from the airport.

Can't wait to return

What a great place! We loved it at the Vamar Vallarta! The staff were so friendly and helpful. Special thanks for Lucy for keeping our room clean and stocked with bottled water. Also, thanks to our amazing pool server for keeping the drinks coming! Also, to the amazing activity staff for having great things to do (Recardo, Matthew and Danny). The rooms were clean and the location of the resort is fantastic. You can walk to the marina for tours, shopping, spas and restaurants. We can't wait to return!

Over all a good time , very much enjoyed the time at the Vamar

I did enjoy the holiday at the Vamar. But a few things need to improve . The food was ok but as others have said could be hotter food. The info given to guest needs to improve . As the dinning options with the different restaurants at the Vamar . And the nightly entertainment we had no notice of this . only found out from other guest. The staff was good . Will go back in the future.

Great week!!!

We stayed Feb 3-10 and had a great time. Rooms were spotless, shoutout to Lucy on 5th floor amazing maid. We loved the resort!!! The only complaint was on Wednesday we were on our towels on the beach and the staff brought beach chairs down onto the beach and put them right in front of us blocking our view of the water. Rude!!! Then on Friday I thought I'd grab chairs and take them to the beach. I got in trouble and was told that's not allowed. What changed between Wednesday and Friday I don't know.

An underrated gem

This resort was a real treat. We have been to Puerto Vallarta 6 or 7 times. This was one of the best. Some reviews complain that this isn't a 5 star resort. News flash, it isn't. It is rated as a 3 star but is far better than that. The building is older and the rooms are dated. However, it is clean. The service is great. The food was very good. The pools are nice. The beach front is secure and private. Some have complained about having to walk across the street to get to the beach. I guess if the street didn't exist there would be nothing to complain about. The distance to the beach is no farther than resorts we have stayed at in Nuevo Vallarta.Manuel, the front door bell boy, is a real treat. Very personable, joyous, helpful. Greets you every time he sees you. I would like to take him home to work for me.Right by the marina gives a nice walk by the yachts and shops. Meals can be eaten right on the waterfront. If I were to give advice to the management: Enforce the designated smoking area rules. Do not allow smoking in the pool or beside it. We have lived in North America with designated smoking areas for decades now. It's a way of life.

Decent low range resort

This resort is just ok. A solid three star. We always found something good to eat, the Italian al a carte was good, and the snack shack has good burgers. The rooms are standard. But the linens are terrible, the beds are plywood. There are 14 of us and we are all unhappy with the beds. The resort is loud. Check in was a nightmare, they finally gave me a standard room to lay down in, as I was very sick upon arrival, a family came in to that room while I was sleeping, then they finally moved us at around supper time. But no king sized bed as we were promised. Two days later we moved to the villas side, the room was so much nicer but much to my disappointment the bed was worse. I lined up pillows and slept on them. In short, the hotel is in bad need of updates, the staff are friendly, you will find something yummy to eat, the drinks are great, the beds are terrible, the rooms are not anywhere near soundproofed so you can hear EVERYTHING from outside, including the drunk guests. This resort is used by locals. Who we found very friendly. If your looking to relax this is not the place. If your looking for anything that resembles a 4 star, again, not the place. But if your wanting a loud fun resort, and plan on sleeping little, and can have patience with the quality of the rooms, then you'll have a good time here. We have travelled as a group every year and this is my least favorite resort. But we made many great memories, so it'll be what you make it.
