Royal Suites Punta Mita
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
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.
We were disappointed with our room at the Grande Palladium. It is kind of noisy as it's more geared for families with children. We up graded to the Royal Suits and we won't look back. The benefits are worth the extra money by far.
My wife & I really enjoy this hotel. This was our 7th trip here at this resort,it has everything that we look for in a getaway.We have nothing but good to say about the people that work there,always friendly & smiling.We really enjoy the rooms on the adult only side,the only thing that was not our favorite is the music by the pool.It is elevator music,or opera on many of the days. In Mexico it would be nice to hear Mexican music.
This was our second 2 week stay at the Royal Suites and once again we were not disappointed. The transportation to the hotel was clean and the driver was very friendly. After we came in the gated entrance, we were immediately warmly greeted by Moises. Check in was speedy and soon we were off to our room. The rooms are large and clean, thanks to Navadid. (No problem with bugs or pests the entire stay!) Omar, our butler, was amazing. Always a friendly "hola"!!! The bar...the bar staff...TERRIFIC!!!! Carlos, Ivan, Oliver, Macario, Marcelino, Victor, Roy and others...FABULOUS!! Always right there to get your next refreshment!!!! Liquor selection was top notch! Food at the pool was good and quick. The pool...very clean. Plenty of lounge chairs. Occasional entertainment in and by the pool. Water acrobats, saxophonist, 2 pc band, jugglers, magician, violinist...and more! Definitely a better variety of music at the pool vs. last year. POP...amazing talent!! These young adults will entertain you from morning to night!!! Tania would always go up and beyond to ensure guests were involved and having the time of their lives!!! She makes a mean guacamole too!!! Shake it up Tania!!!!The Spa...A MUST!!! Facial by Martha...fantastic!!!! Massages were awesome!!!!!! Thanks for setting us up Alfonso, you are amazing!!!The restaurant...clean and elegant with a casual feel. Food portions were large. Salad bar was fresh. The staff was diligent about asking if you had any food allergies. Our friend has celiac and they were able to accommodate him! We ate most of our meals here. Occasional dinner music provided by the beautiful and talented Airam and Charlie We did check out the Bamboo and Ribs & more this year. Both were outstanding as well. Miguel (cricket), beautiful Giovanna, Luciano, Tino, Mariano, to name a few...we miss you!Our last day we did a photo shoot with Rodrigo. Not only can he capture the beauty of this resort but he made it fun too!!!! Highly recommend doing this!!!!We cannot say enough about this place! We love it!!! The management is outstanding!!! Danny, Albina, Anna, Orlando, Diego, Jose, Fernando and Freddy...I'm sure I'm forgetting some...just know we appreciated everything you have done to make our trip special and that none of it went unnoticed!!! See you soon!!!This is our family away from home!
From the moment we came in until the moment we left, it was a relaxing time. You could go to the other side to do things but I would have appreciated some activities in our area, as I don't like leaving my chair abandoned for long periods of time - that just ticks people off (at least in some resorts) but at the same time, I want my chair so I can have some shade when I need it. We enjoyed the a la carte restaurant that was on the Royal side several times but the last couple of days chose to eat at the buffet instead for breakfast simply because the options we were considering those days (cereal, fruit, yogurt) were at the buffet anyway, in greater quantities. I am not someone who eats eggs every morning for breakfast. The view at the Royal a la carte restaurant was quite nice, as it was oceanside. There were, however, some birds that liked to visit that restaurant and steal the sugars, which would make a mess everywhere. The birds did not get into the food (not much was out anyway, being an a la carte), but one day a bird actually pooped on my menu, so they were often on my mind. I would suggest that management put covers on the little bowls where the sugar packets are sitting. It will not likely discourage the birds as it has happened at several resorts we have been to over the years, but that particular mess with the sugar packets will be avoided at least.I enjoyed steak and chicken there, and my husband enjoyed his pizza and steak there but was disappointed with both the snapper and the mahi mahi. The staff on the Royal side will serve some lunch options right to your chair, as well as the drinks, so you do not even need to go and get dried off and dressed to eat something. The poolside staff were great and Ivan, in particular, was excellent. For other a la cartes - we went to the Bambu, Portofino, and Ribs and More. I loved the potatoes, vegetables and soup at the Rib place. The ribs tasted good but were not fall of the bone, I loved the soup there and the potatoes and veggies and my husband had a good steak there. For Bambu I would recommend checking out their salad bar as they had a lot of good looking salads and fresh items to add to them but I did not want to spoil my appetite after filling up on spring rolls and tempura vegetables. The pork medallions were OK and my husband enjoyed his beef/chicken sataty but I had planned to also have the tepanyaki chicken and beef. Unfortunately they wrote it down wrong as mixed, which is a regular menu option that includes chicken, beef and shrimp. The person who served it to me knew about my seafood allergy so he told me about the error, and offered to give me a new one without the shrimp. I had already filed up on the other dishes and had no need for more food, and the service at Bambu was really slow that night, so we refused. Portofino was not great from the perspective of the taste of the food, but the service was better and the view is nice at some tables, since it is near the pool/beach. The minestrone did not taste like any I had ever had before, the pasta was OK but not great, and the mouse dessert did not have the consistency of mousse either - more gelatin like than mouse-like. The service was quicker there than at Bambu, though. We did not have a problem finding chairs. We went down every morning on our way to breakfast (we ate around 8 am), dropped our things on the chairs, and came back to enjoy the day right afterwards. Even the day that we were gone from the resort until 2:30pm on an excursion we did find chairs that were in the full sun rather than the palapas we usually used. The resort had a lot of palapas, which was excellent.We hung out in the lobby bar several times and the service there was great as well. Our Royal lobby bar is quite small and low key and there were rarely more than a few people in there. I felt sorry for the bartenders in there as it must be boring with so few guests coming to see them, but they were pleasant and made good drinks.We went to the Sports bar a couple of nights too and enjoyed their sampler platter and drinks while we hung out. Note that the mozzarella sticks there had us craving more - and they are available poolside as well and are good there too.We watched at least part of the show each night (often missed the start due to supper). They were put on by the staff and were pretty good. They followed it up with an interactive event afterwards designed to get people up and dancing before heading into the disco - I would suggest flat shoes for the ladies, as the area they are dancing on at that time is uneven flagstones. The servers at the bar near the theatre are also quite good and keep the drinks flowing.Our maid service for the week was excellent and being in room 5003, which is one room from the end of the building, it seemed we were one of the first ones she (Beatrix) served. When we left for breakfast around 7:30 - 8 we typically put the sign out for her and by midmorning it was done and several days she gave us towel art in the room. We left tips for her and also inside the fridge for the fridge person that kept us stocked up on beer, water, pop, pringles and chocolate bars. I don't recommend the resort for people with mobility problems. There must have been some ramps or something as I did see a few folks with wheelchairs in the resort on the Palladium side at the buffet, but there are a lot of stairs at the resort and no elevators on the Royal Side.As others have said, the beach is definitely rocky in parts. The Royal side was very rocky. I wouldn't suggest 'beach people' go here as they may be disappointed, but from what I could see, there seemed to be a lot of chairs near the beach and there was a beach bar on the Palladium side where folks could grab a drink and Royal guests on the Royal part of the beach were served by the same servers who served the pools.I`m giving it a 4 and not a 5 because of the odd sewer smell, almost non-existent beach on the Royal side, terrible music, and the disappointing a la cartes on the Palladium side.
Thanks to Tania for the very good yoga class. Makes me wants to start practicing yoga again. Bravo!! The class was held on the terrasse on the Royal suites side of the resort with ocean view and nice breeze. Like a dream :)
