We got an awesome last minute deal and took this resort and afterwards read the comments and went with zero expectations! But I was surprised! We arrived really late, all thanks to west jet deciding to make passengers wait 40 mins for some time share ppl! Seriously, but that's westjet problem. Anyways we reached at 10pm, checkin was fast. My guys were starving and although the kitchen closed they still Let us eat off the buffet! They were even nice about it! I Wanted a room overlooking the ocean and got a great room overlooking the kids pool and the ocean! It wasn't noisy or anything! The beds were ok, not too hard or soft! We noticed the big difference in food on weekends when lots of locals are there and during the week! The food quality and quantity both changes! Overall it was a great experience. The zip line wasn't working and didn't see anyone trying to fix it. The towel system is a little confusing. Bars are open until 'midnight thur-sun, but close at 10 when locals are not partying! There was a wedding on one of the nights and the DJ Was loud on the beach until 2am! It was LOUD. We enjoyed having that cultural experience. The activity Center planned some activities, and I want to shout out for Frances. She is AWESOME. There was some activities but I expected more. I also wish there was better communication of the night activists. You know nothing unless you are by the pool next to the beach! The kids pool was ok. Great for younger kids. Now my biggest disappointment: the kids club! It's meant for girls or Spanish speaking ppl. My boys 9 and 6 had nothing! We were looking forward to the opportunity to leave the kids there and spend some time but NOPE! There are no clocks anywhere but all activirites at the kids club start on the clock and if u go in 20 mins late, they are already done! The girl there speaks only Spanish and understands little to no English! Tv only has Spanish kids channel. There's no electronics or anything to entertain boys! I would give the kids club a big 0! I really wish they improve that! Kitchen staff really friendly. They always had fruit and salad, and creative ways to recycle food! They mix things around and create a new dish for dinner with all the left overs from lunch! Now the Restraunts; why Italian, French and Japanese Restraunt and NO MEXICAN! french Restraunt is HORRIBLE ! ITalian sol Salus or something is GREat! Atmosphere, service and food! I wish they change that as well. The buffet and room service both are good. Bakery cookies are to die for! The cleaning staff is always working hard. Overall had a great time. We will go back
Comfortable, friendly, awesome food

This is a lovely, Mexican style resort. They offer comfortable clean rooms, great food and top notch service. There are 6 reservation restaurants included, two buffets, several snack bars. The food is slanted toward Mexican food (not Tex-Mex), but includes can/us hot dogs, hamburgers, etc. I recommend this resort for people who are looking for a low key resort experience, with friendly staff, and who enjoy some variety in the food. I do not think people who want to eat as if they are at a 5 star restaurant in a can/us city would be happy here, but I love experiencing things I don't get at home in Canada and this is exactly the place for that.
The reservation restaurants have varying dress codes from resort casual to resort elegant, which we loved, as it gave us an excuse to dress up a bit, but they aren't stodgy about it, the men usually simply wore clean shorts and shirt, which was acceptable. Women who like a chance to dress up will enjoy this! However, if you do not want to change out of the swimsuit, you can always go to the buffet restaurants.
The staff deserve special mention; they are all extremely friendly, accommodating and helpful. The resort hosted a thank you dinner on the beach to welcome back returning guests, which was a really nice gesture and a nice treat for us.
The resort is compact, which is a bonus for those with mobility issues. They also have ramps at most places where there are stairs, also a help for those with mobility issues.
We would go back again, this resort was exactly what we liked, quiet at night, easy to get around, friendly helpful staff, plentiful tasty food. Great experience, no complaints whatsoever.

This is our 35th visit to this hotel site - previously known as Playa De Oro. Have seen many changes/improvements but the service and friendliness of the staff stays constant. From the bellmen to the waitstaff to the room attendants to the tennis pro - all are so gracious and accommodating. Truly a family resort - and certainly our "home away from home" which we will continue to visit. We have
made many friends thru the years who also continue to visit each year.
Great for a first time Family getaway, but a very cheesy resort.

I went to this resort way back in 2008. It was my first time going anywhere in the humid, hot part of the world. Since It was my first time I had originally thought it was an amazing place! (I was 13 years old) however, now looking back at this resort, after being at many luxurious all inclusive resorts, the cheese factor definitely comes into sight. The rooms are outdated and smell like strong must and mould. The beach is not even a shade of blue, it is brown.
Don't expect to relax at this beach. It is not a private beach so before you even get a chance to think about relaxing, there will be someone trying to braid your hair or sell you temporary tattoos (etc), it is ridiculous. It is not only the beach where you will be bothered. If you sit near an open window at the dinner buffet, expect to be bothered by locals during your meal.
With all that being said, I do think that it is a great resort to introduce your children on a first family vacation getaway, as it does have many fun activities for children; such as the water park, and a large variety of childrens drinks.
it is also VERY nice having a snack bar on the beach. There is nothing like having a huge plate of fries and an ice cream cone on the beach.
In the long run, I would not recommend this resort to anyone without kids, and anyone who has high expectations.
I would not visit here again, or puerto Vallarta in general.

My husband and I took our 3 year old here for Thanksgiving break. One of the best resorts we have stayed at so far, especially if you have kids. The kids pool and activity area was perfect for her. We enjoyed the food, the pools, the beach, pretty much everything. The staff was very helpful and friendly.
We requested the family room when we booked. When we got there, the room was great but not much of a balcony. My husband figured it wouldn't hurt to ask if we could move across the hall to a room with a bigger balcony and pool view. Without hesitation, the front desk guy said to check back at 9am the next morning and it shouldn't be a problem. So we did and the moved us across the hall to a different room with a bigger balcony and pool view. Also, someone took one of our towels at the pool (off of our lawn chair). The front desk gladly handed us another towel without questioning or wondering if we just "lost" a towel or towel key.
We enjoyed the food for all meals. For dinner we did the buffet 2 nights and tried 3 of the restaurants the other nights. All were great and the waiters were very friendly.
I have already recommended this resort to some family and friends. We hope to return here again!
