Paradise Village Resort & Spa
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Paradise Village Beach Resort & Spa is a renowned resort in Riviera Nayarit with its own exclusive location on a private peninsula, known for its outstanding luxury and impeccable service. Built like an Aztec pyramid, with its own Marina and Zoo - complete with exotic birds and animals. The spacious Suites feature fully equipped kitchens, marble baths and a private terrace. Pamper yourself at the award winning European spa, from a massage to facials, and other rejuvenating treatments. Or simply relax at one of the 2 spectacular Mayan-design lagoon pools where you can enjoy your dream Mexican vacation.
Location: Directly on the beach in Nuevo Vallarta, 25 min to downtown Puerto Vallarta, 15 min from the airport.
We went with three other couples for a ten day stay, each renting separate rooms. We upgraded to a suite and a enjoyed spacious living room, double-wide balcony, a kitchen and two separate bedrooms. Housekeeping was adequate, but did not include cleaning of flatware, stemware and silverware - plan to buy your own dish soap. Our all-inclusive plan entitled us to plenty of food and drink, but the included restaurant choices (one inside and two beach) were very limited. Coffee service is available in the hotel lobby bar early in the morning, if you choose not to make yours from the packets provided with your room coffee maker. Although the beach is advertised as powdered white sand, it is actually a black gold sand and glistened in the sunlight. The beach is deep and long and easy to walk. The associated golf course is a decent course and a friendly challenge. Golf is not included, but the fee is reasonable for golf in Mexico. The shuttle service to and from the course is prompt and easy to access.There are several nearby off-premises restaurants that offer good alternatives to the rather mundane fare of the on-site restaurants. There is also a well stocked and reasonably priced shopping mall, with a pharmacy, a few hundred yards out the main gate - safe to walk. If you negotiate a taxi to go off premises, be safe. Use the referral of the resort concierge or valets and contract with your driver to pick you up as well. Do not try to hail a taxi from the curb. The two pools were nice, but the adult pool had plenty of children in it. The Paradise Village resort sits alongside a very nice marina, making people-watching and boat-watching a pleasant distraction. Downtown Puerto Vallarta is a good cab or water-taxi ride away and not within walking distance. Tuesday there is a street market event within a few hundred yards of the entrance - it is a safe walk and nice place to get fresh fruit and veggies or souvenirs. The resort staff were very friendly, especially if you had a few words of Spanish up your sleeve to ask for things and thank them for service.All-in-all, there are plenty of other venues in the world to try before a repeat visit here is warranted for us.
I was really excited to go to Paradise Village. This was our first trip to Mexico so we were thrilled to get away for a while. We went on an interval exchange so booking was seamless. PROS: There's an over abundance of activities so you don't have to leave the resort and you are never bored. The location was great, I'm glad I looked at the tips for were to stay (Uxmal Tower). It was nice and quiet. The beach was beautiful and we must have went at an off season because we had no problem getting one of the umbrella's right near the water. Cons: We did the all-inclusive because it was our first time in Mexico and we didn't want to have to worry about what are we going to eat. The breakfast buffet was mediocre, they had theme nights every night which were included with the all inclusive plan so we went to a few. Again, the food was ehh. The best part about the all-inclusive plan was the alcoholic beverages and the Tiki bar. The waiters come up to you on the beach and take your order, that was paradise. But the sales people are relentless. I mean we just wanted to relax and we kept getting hounded to go to one of the "presentations" for a discount on an excursion. And we said "no gracias" but it was pretty much everyday a new salesperson. Most of the staff were friendly but we were going to a theme night and my husband had on a sleeveless shirt, and one of the girls jumps in front of him and says you can't go in there and I turn around and say what is the problem and they say the shirt has no sleeves. Ok, no big deal we left, we weren't that excited to go anyway but if you have the all inclusive the theme nights is the only way for you to get food that's included after 6pm. So we were annoyed by that and the way it was done. Needless to say we will not be back to Paradise Village. Puerto Vallarta was beautiful but I think next time we'll pick somewhere that we can truly relax without being hassled.
This was my first time at this spa. We have had our boat in Paradise Village Marina for five years and I can't believe I've missed this place !!! Now I will be a regular since we are here on our boat every six weeks or so!This is a wonderful experience ! The reception staff is very helpful and accommodating to ones questions and requests! The Mayan Wrap I had was super! It combined a full body salt scrub with the wrap as well as a full body massage ! The full gym facility is connected to the spa as well. There is a discount for hotel and marina guests so it is an outstanding value for US dollars!
We have been members for almost 15 years and when we arrived there was a little problem with our room, but we got the 2 bedroom we requested and it was in tower 3 on the first floor. I did not think I would like the room on the 1st floor, but it worked out perfectly. Restaurants, Mayapan ate there 3 times and 2 times food was good, but last time my chicken dish was not good at al and their service could be better and the hostess could have been much nicer. We also went tot he Talum for breakfast every day and lunch 1 day and dinner once and the service was wonderful and the hostess's were the best. I have know Yosibel for 10 years and she remembers us when we get there and always greets us with a smile and kind words telling welcome home and Antonio was one of the best wiaters and all the waiters were great but Antonio made us the special Mexican coffee that we look forward to when we go to Paradise. The waiters at Mayapan said they do not do the Mexican coffee any more due to the new management well the new management are losing customers because I talked to a lot of people when I was there and most of the people disliked the food and sent it back to the kitchen. Better start paying more attention to what your customers want if you want them to eat at the Mayapan in the future. I would eat at the Talum more often their breakfast is great all that you could want. The Kaybal snack restaurant near the beach was very good and great service and the waiters around the pool work very hard to serve you drinks and food. Hugo, Davi, Geo work very hard to get people doing activities in and around the pool very hard worker and great at their jobs. We will return in 2 years to see what changes they have made in Paradise.
First time in our life, we were robbed in the room Yes,the room has safety box, but it's location is very inconvenient - it is too high. Any time when we need to use it, we had to bring chair. We are old people and have knees and hip problems. For us this claiming is real challenge. But the attitude of the management to this incident was really disappointing. By all means, manager of operation and security manager were trying to cover the staff. They refused to give us the copy of our report and later we understood why - what was written there was absolutely not the same as we stated in our complain. We lost money but what is the most important we lost trust and respect.
