good hotel
Jan 07 2017
I would give this hotel 3.5 stars. Food was average on the whole although new years eve special dinner and mexican firsta dinner was very good, as well as the a la carte italian restaurant. You need reservations if you want to eat at surf and turf and it was full while we were there. The pool was crowded during the day but kept clean and in good care. The beach was average but ok for swimming- free kayaks were fun also. A bit crowded because was on a public beach and smoking was permitted which on the beach which I didn't care for. The tennis courts were nice ( 2 clay courts and 4 indoor courts. I took tennis lessons each day which were good. Staff was very helpful and very nice. Good service. The rooms were clean and well kept. The hotel is in a good location close to town. Overall, I enjoyed the hotel and it was a good experience.

Canto del Sol is a small resort with a very small beach. If you are going to enjoy a beach, this is not the hotel for you. In addition, the water at the beach is very dirty and filled with trash so swimming is not a pleasant experience. There are two pools, and they are also very crowded. The employees at the snack bars and bars around the pool are excellent. They work hard to get drinks for everyone and wait on you at the beach, bringing food and drinks. The rooms are nice but simple, no refrigerators, but kept very clean by the staff. The restaurants are nice and it was easy to get a reservations. The food at the buffets was good, and there was no never a line to get in. The location is really great, close to town, and also close to shopping.

Will not return

They constantly try to sell you time shares and adventure trips. We had ants all over the kitchen, even though our room was "one if the best". The master ceiling was dripping water. Their solution was to move the bed to a different wall.

Canto Del Sol

Our room in the hotel was dated and not very nice. The bed was very firm and we had a difficult time getting a pad to try to make it softer. What Canto Del Sol lacks in up to date facilities, it makes up in excellent service. I was very impressed with the staff energy and service. We spent a lot of time by the swimming pool and the employees were quick to bring drinks. Dinners were great too, staff here are very motivated and fun.

Wondeful place in the sun

We were looking for a totally relaxing vacation in the sun and this was it. The hotel rooms and sahred areas were kept sop clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. The small hotel was right on the beach, where we sat under umbrellas and read.

When you walk in they are right on top of you to check you in so you can go and enjoy your time. Everyone is so nice and helpful and when we had a problem they asked no questions and did what had to be done to make us happy. Will be going back again next year.

Comforting beach getaway

this was the best vacation we ever had together. The hotel was exceptional, food excellente, service beyond compare and the staff extremely friendly. The accident that occurred at the end was the only bad spot and did not involve the hotel at all.

Best in PVR
Jan 31 2014
These people bent over backwards to do anything to please us. The attitude of all of the travelers reflected this fact. The quality of the food shocked me at every single meal. Pool area perfect. Tennis lessons were outstanding. Rooms excellent and cool. I managed a Carlson Travel agency and I have run two multi-million dollar kitchens and this was my very best Mexico Hotel experience including PVR, SJO, MZT and CUN. The staff is just outstanding. The Prime Rib melted in your mouth. I can't go back soon enough.

My wife and two best friends returned on 30th march,the hotel is a very good 3.5 stars in our opinion,worth every penny.The staff in every department are of a very high standard,even waiter service on the beach as well as poolside, well done George and the crew. Susanah our maid, was superb for our two week stay. All three al a carte restaurants were 5 star quality in every way.The main buffet restaurant was average though on an evening, breakfast there was good, even better at the outside buffet overlooking the Pacific Ocean, even eggs Benedict. Their all alfresco.Bar service throughout sheer quality with branded drinks, plenty of them too! Evening entertainment low key,but we always go out a fair bit. Local bars and down the Malacon, main stripe is great fun, so much to see and do, more traditional than the west side of Mexico which we also love.The good thing is that you can now fly direct,we couldn't 19 years ago and so more accessible now. We would stay at this hotel again definitely. Go on the Pirate ship on an evening you will not regret it. Geoff and Julie Mancicius, Staffordshire, England.

Super clean, super choice, amazingly friendly people. The best advice pointer would be ‘would we go back’. The answer would be “in a flash” Always something to do. Always a great choice of food and great service thrown in Well done

Great authentic resort for everyone

This resort is centrally located mid way to the airport, marina and downtown. It will only cost you 85 pesos from the hotel to the Malecon wich has a lot to offer in terms of restaurant shop and atttaction. Nearby, from a walking distance you have acces to ATM and bank to withdraw pesos which is the best currency to use. The resort has free wifi which makes it very convenient too. The resort is nothing fancy but it is clean and the staff is very advertant and friendly. There is 3 a la carte restaurants italian, mexican & surf and turfwith. 2 snaks which one of them serve various kinds of fresh ceviche. This hotel also offert 3 bars. There is also a buffet obviously which has variety and very tasty food including mexican dish. The only downside to this hotel for some people is the beach it is small with dark sand, big waives, cold water and rocks. But Puerto Vallarta is not a destination known for its beaches. This hotel is a smoke free environement but it has designated area for smokers. Tip,The surf and turf is a very romantic a la carte since it is by the water and you can admire the sunset.

Great Holiday
Mon Apr 16 04:59:17 EDT 2018
When we arrived at our room we were disappointed, it faced the side of another building as had little light coming into the room and there was a smell of mould and signs of mould on the ceiling. We mentioned we were unhappy with the room and customer service agreed and moved us to another room. The second room while quite basic, as all the rooms appear to be, was bright, clean and adequate for our stay, though the bathroom was a bit average. Location of the hotel is great, you can walk to the Malecon, about 40 mins or catch a local bus from the main road which is a short walk, bus costs 8 Mexican pesos each way. You can also get a Punta Mita bus, Walmart and many other buses from the same location - bus to Punta Mita is 31 Pesos There are 2 pool areas, the main pool was very busy around easter weekend with most of the loungers reserved with towels - and typically no-one on them. The other pool was quieter and easier to get a lounger. Service and cleanliness of all areas of the hotel were excellent. Adult and kids entertainment/activities were good and our 12 year old son enjoyed the kids club/activities. Evening entertainment was not great but we didn't really have much interest in it anyway so not an issue for us. Breakfast - 3 location options, main buffet, Snack bar area overlooking the beach and in the Mexican (when busy) with plenty of options and was good Lunch - 3 location options, main buffet area, snack bar area overlooking the beach (all day snacks - Tacos, Hot dogs, Nachos, etc and the area by the second pool - serving fish dishes, which was good Dinner - Buffet area, Mexican Restaurant, Italian Restaurant and Surf & Turf Restaurant - All the restaurant food was good and we used the restaurants 10 out of 14 nights even though we were only supposed to use them 7 out of the 14 nights. The beach was OK but not the Indian Ocean or Caribbean - but we knew that, with use of Kayaks included Branded drinks throughout. The staff were excellent, hotel very clean, excellent service (whether you tip or not) and a very enjoyable stay. Puerto Vallarta is a safe and great place to visit. Excellent value for money
