There are many pluses to staying here. The resort is amazing and well designed so you can't really get lost. It's really interconnected and there are lots of maps even if you do. It's nice how the main amenities are in a central area like the lobby, bars, shows, nightclub which is is super convenient. The entertainment had hands down the best singers and dancers I've seen at a resort. The true Mexican spirit is alive and well. With this region being relatively new to tourism, the staff is pure and genuine. When we go to the Mayan Riviera, they all have their stories for tips. Here they are devoted to great service. You will have ultra toned legs when you leave. There are lots of pathways with incline/decline. I did see a few people in wheelchairs so it is friendly to that. The food was amazing and terrific at all restaurants but at buffets if something runs out, it's gone. The bar service even at restaurants was exceptional. The Ernest Hemingway bar was a blast. Amazing liquor, hot drinks and fun games. When I ordered a gin martini at an a la carte, it was smoothest I've ever had. Areas for improvement: The pool and beach area could use some maintenance as the cement/stucco was wearing away in area but overall it was great. Now the time share staff...again they all are wonderful people but they do bend the truth to get you into a meeting. Don't agree even just to listen, it's high pressure sales even what the resort puts onto these staff members. It's not worth the resort credit they offer just to listen. I would return to this resort again.

Amazing Resort

This place was simply gorgeous, staff were very attentive. The downside was the amount of steps...didn’t help with the fact I’d had a hip replacement in June!!!...would we return...very much so!!..food was rather confusing...good ‘a la carte’ restaurants...buffets were generally only warm....however one staff member will always remain in our memory..Javier...glorious personality.

Let me start by saying this is my 2nd stay at the GPV the first one i came my own and was amazing,this time i brought my 10 year old nephew with me,so i upgraded to the Family Selection prior to my arrival and never looked back. Many thanks to the staff of the FS for making this 2 week holiday a memorable one.From the beauty of the place to quality of service. Special thanks go to Hilda and Alexa our family Hosts for their professionalism and warmth. Hilda went above and beyond to make our holiday the best ever, please tell her we stayed in room 4114. More shout outs to the staff at the FS pool bar Macorio Geraro Efren and Patricia the drinks kept coming. All the staff at the Nest to many to name thank you. Special thank you to the POP rep "MAFIA" for looking after and playing a lot of water polo with Carwyn he had so much fun and misses her, We cant wait to come back so see you guys soon.

Excellent holiday

Ok, This is a fantastic hotel, set in a wondeful location. It is set on three clifftops in between three small valleys, which double as the pool areas, one is the family pool, one main / childrens and one adults only. The service and staff are excellent , especially Jorge Gutierrez, the bartender in the Family Lobby (ask him to do his flaming tower trick), as well as the Breakfast team in The Nest Restaurant , who provided excellent service, as well as some nice friendly banter. My only frustration was we tried to book the Ribs and More restuarant on 5 occasions, only to have it cancelled at the last minute 4 times, for reasons that were never really explained. However on the one occasion we did eat there, we said that this was the best one, and as the name suggests, it was ribs, steaks, chicken, burgers etc, Highly recommended hotel.

The best holiday ever

I visited with my boyfriend on our first holiday together in June. It was quite simply outstanding. The staff were friendly and attentive and tried to go as far as remember drinks orders around the pool so that you didn’t even have to ask- they would just bring you a drink if they’d seen you had finished and, as this hotel is all inclusive, it was free! Jessica at the infinity pool bar was genuinely one of the best bar waitresses I’ve ever met. Alongside this, the hotel is in immaculate condition, i really like the animal rehoming program they have where they are looking after animals that can’t go back to their original habitat. The spa was also amazing and really not badly priced at all- and so worth it ! If you get a treatment they also let you use the facilities on another day for free! I really don’t understand the views about the all inclusive being bad and not much choice as that’s completely wrong- there’s a 3 page cocktail menu (if not longer) alongside a range of beers, other alcohols and soft drinks etc. I really hope to return one day- absolutely amazing
