This place looked so good on the web but is lacking in organization for the rooms and for what they tell customers.We booked the hotel and were told that for an extra fee we could get in our room earlier. We told them we would be there in the morning and they said no problem, we can give you a room as early as 10am. This wasn't not the case. We had to argue with the hotel for the to let us in at 12. We agreed but it took another hour or a little more because we went to have breakfast. Then we didn't get the room we were promised with two beds. We got a tiny room and we're promised a small fold away bed to be added later. But there was no room to put it in. Either we blocked the bathroom or we blocked the mirror that my wife was planning to use to get ready for that night. We went back down told them that there was no way we could stay there because it was way too small and we were given another room. The problem with the second room is that the guest were still in there. Lack of organization, communication and experience on how to run a hotel. Can you imagine if that happened to you and you were still in the room getting out of the shower? Or your wife?! So there we go back down to reception to complain again. This time they told us that there was nothing they could do because they were all booked up. My wife and I got super upset and asked for a manger. When he came out he finally comped us the penthouse. The unfinished penthouse. No fridge, stove, only one air conditioner worked, the TV,s are standard definition, there is no wifi in the room. Or any room for that matter according to the hotel. And at first the keys for the room didn't work very well. If it wasn't for the bar and a decent pool I would of had terrible time. The breakfast buffet is ok. The chilaquiles were pretty good and our waiter was excellent. Well the first waiter. The other times we went our server took forever to bring us water and to take our order. The dinner food was cold but once our first waiter came back we were ok again.The place has lots of things to do like water sports in the pool, bored games and table games like ping pong. The rooms are not much to look at but they did the job. I would. Not recommend staying there and I won't talk about the awful beach and the buffet by the beach. But I can't tell anyone to go there. I just felt and was told like they were just starting with a new owner and that they were a work in progress. More should have been done in my book. And maybe my review would have been better because they really tried.
The resort was fantastic. It has a swimming pool at the marine side but also one at the villa park on the sea side located on the other side of the road. Beside the standard buffet this resort has also a vis and an Italian restaurant which need to be reserved in advance but places are limited. For the Italian restaurant long pants is obliged for male.We like to thanks the waiters of the restaurant Antonio, Rosa, Nayit for the perfect service and the chef of the Italian restaurant Chef Cinzia for the delicious food
We had a great time in Vamar Vallarta. The staff was very friendly and we met a lot of nice people. There were many Canadians there, we hung out with them all week and had a blast. The food was ok not awesome and when we got sick of it we just walked over to the marina and had something to eat. There are lots of restaurants on the marina and there is some great food there which is well priced. The fancy restaurant which you need reservations for is pretty good and we ate there 3 times when we were there.The first night we were in a room above the bar and it was too loud so they moved us the next night to another room. The room they moved us to was really nice and had a great view. The bed was not the best but we lived with it. The staff were super friendly and we met the owner a couple of times, he was very nices. The Vallarta is in a great location it is only a 10 minute bus ride to downtown, PV, 10 minutes to the airport, it is situated on the Mariana and the Ocean so it is in a perfect spot. We will definitely go back.
The reception staff is totally lacking in service (Victor and some others there) it is amazing that the people who are in the restaurants and in the room cleaning are more attentive than all the reception staff. And yet neither my wife nor I were served with quality and at times with respect. "We don't have it", "its full", "water? No, because the service is over", The "live experience" for me was a resounding lie since I arrived and they asked to park the car outside the hotel move our own bags.... Well I have one day more to go here and let see how it ends. But I'm sure that I'll never come back again and I definitely don't recommend this place at all. Just a very few a rare exceptions on service like (Delicia) from the breakfast (she was kind and polite) please put her at the front desk or the girl that give you the towels she has more attitude than many of your "customer service specialists". But... Not all is terrible , the food is Ok, the room is clean, the view is quite nice but in conclusion the service needs to be improved with urgency
The resort was nice, not the most modern, but not too outdated. They were doing some renovations when we went in december. Nice weather in december, hot and cooler in the evening. Perfect time to see whales, dolphins, and even a baby turtle release right on the beach of Vamar Vallarta. If you are a perfectionist, picky, and a germaphobe, you may have challenges staying here. We had a few little bugs in our room due to a crack under the main door. But it's not a big deal because bugs are common. Three pools were very cold, one was warm. Small Beach area, but you can go onto other beaches right beside. Nice fish in the water, watch out for tiny jellyfish! I got a few stings and never even saw the jellyfish! I am a very picky eater, plus vegetarian, and I didnt love most of the food. My boyfriend on the other hand is not very picky and he thought it was amazing. Very traditional mexican food, there will be no pizza or American food at all! Most of the staff were very kind, always asking us if we want drinks. Many of them know good english, quite a few of them do not. The resort seemed to be 80% Mexican, 18% North American, 2% European. The resort is a 10 min bus ride from Walmart and very close to downtown. Its super close to everything! Also I want to mention the amount of street vendors on the beach. Theres tons, constantly, you just have to politely say "no gracias" and they wont push further. They aren't allowed on the resort property so don't worry about them there. Also shoutout to both of the Ricardo's, and Lucy for their amazing service. There was a few more but I can't recall their names. Overall me and my significant other had one of the most amazing experiences of our lives so far! We went to the Marieta's Islands for the eco adventure (which they don't show you the hidden beach anymore), and we explored the wonderful city of Puerto Vallarta. Also incase you are ageist, we are both 20 years old, but most people were much older at the resort. Hope you enjoy the trip!
