This is the second time we have visited GPV, the first being about 5 years ago and this most recent from Nov. 27 - Dec. 4, 2016. We did not stay at the Royal side, although we contemplated it. For us, it's not really worth the extra cost because we don't care about the rooms that much, just the beach....

This was a very nice, clean hotel. We loved the the adult only pool and the a la cartes were divine. When we visited the a la cartes were unlimited which was excellent for us as the buffet scene doesn't appeal to us. The bteam arch was nice but the sea a little rough but the sea pool was amazing...

We arrived at night so we began our night heading to the sports bar to play pool, have snacks and relax. The next day we explored, there...

This wasn't a great resort. There wasn't one dinner that we went to where they ran out of pretty much everything. Frustrating to go to a rib restaurant and be told they are out of ribs. Ran out of red wine every night we were there. The no reservation thing is nice, but we waited for over an hour to...

We came here for our honeymoon, back in 2012. Service was excellent, food was excellent and the grounds were absolutely gorgeous. It is a bit far from Puerto Vallarta but if you're wanting a perfect get-away and get spoilt, this is the perfect place.

This resort is in my favorite part of Puerto Vallarta. The town of Punta de Mita is only a few minutes away by taxi. The resorts sits on a cliff above Punta Burros which is a great surf spot. The resort supplies surf boards (soft tops), SUPs, kayaks, and a couple of Hobie Cats. The property also has a zoo...

We recently went to this resort with over 50 people for a wedding. Of course there were pros and cons to the resort. The resort had a beautiful layout, there wasn't too much walking, however there were hills and stairs so i probably would not recommend it for older people. The wifi was awesome, we were able to access it...
