We stayed on the Club side and we got a pretty good deal on this hotel for 5 days. For what we paid, we can't really complain at all. There was access to two pools and the beach. The beach was pretty narrow. The did have free kayak rentals for 1 hour. Boogies boards were available but the hotel has... More

Not much sleep, our room had thin walls and we were located next to the main lobby stairs, very loud noises from hallway, next room, outside and buffet (which was across from us). Curtains ripped, holes, two double beds, toilet always leaking, and our safe would not open so they had to drill a hole through it so we could... More

We stayed at the hotel side, and it was not acceptable for a four star resort. Our first room had bugs in the bathroom; the tub was badly stractched; the lighting was institution like (all flourescent lights); and our safe didn't work. Our second room was better, but the tub was still in bad shape. The rooms were not well... More

Means the hotel is very limited far as pools restaurants,and activities.The tower building blocks the sun 1/2 the day on the pool.Since they build the sunset resort in the middle it ruined this resort....

We stayed in the timeshare side of the resort, but this was the best experience we've had in Mexico. The beds are actually soft, the staff are incredibly helpful and hospitable, and the location is close to downtown Puerto Vallarta. It's easy to ride the bus since they only go North to South and inexpensive at just 60 cents each... More
