Our Opinion

A small resort right next door to the Grand Palladium Vallarta Resort & Spa. The Royal Suites Punta Mita is very intimate with only one restaurant, bar and pool. There is no buffet restaurant, but you can go next door and use all the facilities of the Grand Palladium. The decor is a step up from the Palladium and is completely immaculate. The rooms are much nicer, cleaner, and larger than the Palladium rooms. An excellent quiet getaway spot for couples.

The Royal Suites Punta de Mita is an exclusive section within the facilities of the Grand Palladium Vallarta Resort. The concept of The Royal Suites is distinguished by its personalized service for adults only. Enjoy privacy, relaxation and tranquility in this luxurious resort.

Location: Beachfront in Riviera Nayarit, 60 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta, 15 minutes from Bucerias and 40 minutes from the Puerto Vallarta airport.

Whales, Sun, Fun and Relaxation

Had a great experience. Staff are extremely attentive. Royal Suites restaurant and bar have great staff working there. I won't name them because they are all awesome. Entertainment is fantastic. A big thank you to Tania Bonita for making us feel extra special. Spa is very nice and member area has the best views. Saw several whales frolicking in the ocean during our stay. Great place to go have fun and relax

Quiet, relaxing holiday.

Just returned from 7 days at the Royal Suites. Very quiet and relaxing, love the adults only option! Sat in the adults only infinity pool watching humpback whales breach right out in front of the resort...incredible. Ivan at the pool bar learned our names the first day and was an amazing have a fantastic employee here. Food was very good on the royal suites side and we also enjoyed the Japanese restaurant, Bamboo, on the Palladium side. Evening shows on the Palladium side were hit and miss but don't mis thursdays Rock and Roll show...definitely our favourite. Excellent wifi throughout the resort. For a relaxing vacation with no screaming children, you can't go wrong with the Royal suites.

Not worth the money!

We were at the royal suites from January 8-15 2017 and it was not worth the money! First of all the resort should be a 55+ because it was definitely an older crowd. My husband and I are in our 20's but are not party animals yet we still found it boring. Secondly we found the restaurant staff on the royal side to be rude. Third, the resort smelled like sewer ALL THE TIME!! Seriously, that's no exaggeration. The housekeeping staff did not do a good job cleaning our rooms and rarely replenished things in our room like snacks, drinks, etc. Even if the "do not disturb" sign was on the door the maids would let themselves into our room and if we told them "no gracias" they still walked into our room without a second thought. The beach was also pretty much nonexistent. It was so rocky and full of seaweed. What was the worst part of our experience here? We are COVERED in bites. I went to the doctor today since I have had bites for over a week and the doctor is 99.9% sure they are from BED BUGS and someone else we went with has them also. I have started the process of filing a complaint so the company we booked our vacation with knows about this. This resort was not worth the $4000 we spent to stay here. My experience here was negative and we most definitely won't be returning to this resort or recommend it to others. We are so very disappointed.

Way over priced

Went with a large group of people which I would have thought would have lowered our price a little, or if nothing else would gain us some benefit while there. We received neither. Staff in the restaurant on the royal side were not friendly at all. Pool was run down, music by the pool was mostly jazz type song mixes, no pool activities/schedule, were a few bits of random entertainment. Guy playing with a ladder/girl juggling/karaoke style singer. Beach is near non existent on the royal side, too much rock etc. The royal suites side definitely seemed to be best suited to a 55+ crowd. Luckily royal suite guests are allowed access to the palladium side of things which is where all the fun things happen. Rooms were entirely comparable. Very few rooms have an ocean view especially on the royal side. If you want an ocean view it's a costly upgrade, make sure you don't get the ones that have the palm trees in front of them 😜our fridge on the royal side was restocked with 3 types of beer daily. Bud light and two others I didn't recognize, and they wouldn't let us pick anything different. Would have thought that corona, sol, or Dos Equis would have been more popular choices. There was no benefit to being on the royal side as far as we could tell. I read quite a few reviews before leaving. The only two things I found to be accurate was there always seems to be a quiet corner to sit in (applies to both sides) there would be a few staff members that stood out to me. Marisol (royal side) pool side waitress, Erick (both sides) bartender. There were two others that were nice but I can't recall their names. The shows for evening entertainment were very loud, too loud. hard to socialize at all even if your sitting outside the theatre and even though I love loud music, the same applied to the disco. More of a production style show than one that involves the audience, if your looking for something funny, most of them lacked humour. There was a zoo on the premises that advertised they rescued animals that could not return to the wild. With the lack of anything in any of their enclosures (grass,plants etc.) I have to wonder if they are actually doing these animals any favours. It was rather depressing to look at. The area around the main stage and buffet restaurant smelled like sewage so often I gagged more times than I could count. Seemed like a great place to go if you liked the idea of bringing young kids with you on holidays. They had a whole kids waterslide splash park pool area, as well as a kids club that catered to all ages, as well as babysitting services. I didnt actually get to see or take part in any of the pool side activities on the palladium side, although they did have an activities schedule, which is more than we got on our side. There were so many things that were missing, as petty as it sounds, sometimes it's the little things that make the biggest differences. The housekeeping staff don't do any type of special things like flower petals or towel animals, and not for weddings, anniversaries, or birthdays either. This is a service that they offer, but you have to pay extra for it. If I remember correctly I think it was about 50 bucks per night. A turn down service in the evening was provided free, but I found that a little creepy, I'm not sure why anyone needs their blankets pulled back for them. It would have been nice to get a table for dinner that would accommodate our whole group, however the restaurant refused to put more than 2 tables together (which then only sat 6) just little things....Gimmicky things: massage guy walking around tells you the special price you will get if you book a massage with him right away. That same price applies all day everyday.......Travellers club guy-tries to reel you in by telling you that he's not a time share guy. But he has a free backpack for you if you listen to his spiel about the travellers clubAnytime anyone does something nice for you-you get a cool little collection of cards of them asking you to rate them on trip advisor. I am a firm believer in giving feed back especially when it's deserved but it feels kind of pointless when your being told to. Conclusion: Didn't feel like we got half of what we paid for. Don't waste your money on the royal suites side.

  • Spongesurfer : Kamloops

We have been coming to the Palladium for 15 years and staying at the royal suites since it was built. This trip was by far the worst. Other than the royal suites breakfast the food was sub par. We go to surf and usually finish around 530 6. The kitchen now closes at 5 at the suites so the only food available to have a drink by the pool is by room service from the main kitchen which has to be delivered to your room, 45 minutes later for a burnt clubhouse...terrible. The buffet was literally the same every night and both of us got sick on this trip and never left the resort. I also did everything possible to prevent it, tons of hand sanitizer and eating nothing that wasn't peeled. I would never go back. I will miss the many friends i have met there over the years and i have to mention that the management did try hard and was very nice but the food and service still fell short. Perhaps in time with Pierre's leadership it will turn around. The royal suites is now a place for young people who take over the pool throwing footballs and cranking their own music. Drunk by noon, sadly not a place to relax anymore. Security is useless and wont do a thing. Waste of money.
