Loved The Tranquility and Laid Back Attitude

This Family adventure was really awesome. My wife and kids just spent a week here. There was a group of 7 of us including Daughters Boyfriend, and we really enjoyed this location. It is a bit remote and will cost 1500 pesos to get a van there from the taxi stand across from the airport. Or 750 pesos for a cab. It was ~ 45 minutes in the Mexican 100 race Van!!??! Having said that the check in was effortless and Hassel free. The rooms are quite nice and have everything you need including a stocked fridge. We went straight down, and I mean down, to the beach after quickly changing. The beach and pools are beautiful. There is a fairly big surf here so body surfing etc.. is a blast. The beach is really clean and the water out past the break is quite clear. There is only this one hotel currently along the whole stretch of beach so the beach is not busy at all. There are vendors, but very few other tourists. The food at both the buffets and the a la cartes is very good. you need to make reservations for the a la cartes with the concierge which are stationed on the main floor of each building near the lobby. The hotel is quite new so everything on the property was in IMMACULATE shape; except for the pool tables... They need some new balls cues and some TLC, but they sure get used. If you happen to walk down the beach about 300 m east, there is a fresh water swamp that has crocs; just don't get to close or you might be lunch. All in all our stay was fantastic from the way they set you up with beach chairs and umbrellas, (no stupidity of going down in the dark to reserve) to the great food and bar service. There is also a 24 hour coffee bar with great coffee drinks and snacks which we visited every morning. I am sure we will revisit this resort, it was a great stay.

Great resort with good service and fantastic views

My wife and I just returned from a week at the Iberostar. Despite some misgivings with it being a full family resort, the property is big enough and varied enough it never really seemed crowded and was quiet for the most part. The upgraded room with a walkout right on to the beach was a good investment. We never really went up to the pool area and the beach front was so convenient and had good service from the staff. You can actually go for a nice long walk on the beach towards the Litibu Village to the east. This was probably the cleanest resort we have visited. Although it is new, the room was cleaned serviced 3 times throughout the day. It was almost annoying (ha ha) to hear them power wash at night on most of the concrete areas. The food in the buffets got a little repetitive after a week, but it was always fresh and well presented. Of the 4 “gourmet” restaurants the Pacific Express received a repeat reservation as the food and decor were great. Tsunami, the Beni Hana style restaurant was also good. The Mexican restaurant was average the The Steakhouse was actually poor. The availability of a cigar bar off the lobby area was a nice touch and a good way to end each day. The staff, overall were very good and service was excellent. In terms of golf, Litibu is good value for money. The pace of play was excellent, which can sometimes be a challenge at a resort course. We like this area, up north away from the business of the city, so the 45 minute drive up from the airport is a nice buffer. Well worth considering if you are looking to travel to PV.

Beautiful and clean resort!

Our group of 18 adults visited in December. Beautiful and clean resort. Lots of places to have drinks through out the day. Many drink choices, just ask! The buffet was okay, literally the exact same choices every day for lunch and dinner. The steak house and Japanese restaurants were the best ala carte choices. The Mexican restaurant was a disappointment. Room service was limited, but just what we needed through out the week. The walks along the beach were amazing! Used the shuttle to go to Sayulita. Worth it for a quick morning trip. Had a great trip and really enjoyed the resort.

BEAUTIFUL RESORT ON REMOTE BEACH

This is the Iberostar's newest resort located approximately 17 miles from Puerto Vallarta Airport. The resort is located in an area that is extremely isolated. It faces a beautiful expansive beach and lovely mountain views. The sun rises behind the resort and sets behind a mountain to the left of the resort if you are facing the ocean. If using a clock, I would say the sun rises at the 11:00 mark and sets the 8:00 mark on the clock. (I hope you understand this) The main resort sits atop a cliff overlooking the ocean, with the majority of rooms surrounding the pool or garden area. Having booked a Standard Room, Ocean View, 1 King Bed, we were advised at check-in that we were "upgraded" to an ocean front walk-out room upon arrival for no additional charge nor explanation. Our room was just a few steps away from the beach, however, we faced a 4 foot high brick wall that made viewing the ocean impossible from the patio or the room itself. The room was far beyond the main resort area, and would have to either take an elevator 4 floors up and then walk approximately 10 minutes around the the pool and bar areas to reach the restaurants, buffet and entertainment areas. One day the elevator was under repair and we had to walk up for flights of stairs, which beat the alternative of hiking a steep hill of steps in the blazing hot sunshine. The room itself was clean and maid serviced 2-3 times daily, with turn down service and beautiful flower petals on our bed along with chocolate each evening. I'm not sure if this is standard procedure or because guests were scarce the week we visited and so we were given a great deal of attention by the happy, friendly staff. The food was delicious, beautifully presented and plentiful. Reservations were required for the restaurants, my favorite being the Japanese Hibachi and my husbands, The French. No complaints in the food or drink department, and there is a nice little snack and beverage bar just steps from the beach. The beach is clean, the water clear and the lifeguards attentive. The resort seems to cater to families and there was a great children pool/play area. Theme nights at the buffet and the Mexican Theme night has a carnival atmosphere with games and cotton candy, and a Mariachi Band. Children are welcome everywhere, including the bar/lounge, where live music is played by a house band. We observed several families with children ranging from babes to teens, playing cards and enjoying the soft music that ranged from rock to Adele. There is large theater and a nightclub as well, and although we did not visit the nightclub, we did go to the theater several times and it was very enjoyable with themes such as "Rock", The Beatles and Broadway. There is a pricey spa, but we did not utilize it, and were told by other guests that there was a tent on the beach with locals offering massages for $30. Overall, the resort is excellent if you enjoy relaxing by the beach or swimming pool all day with an early evening. There is only one gift shop, one jewelry shop and no local artisans other than your typical beach peddlers hawking their Made in China wears. The resort offers a tour desk with several day excursions to Puerto Vallarta, Snorkeling, Scuba Diving and the one we took to Sayulita, a quaint Mexican Village that was a disappointment, both in shopping (avoid the Hippie Market and visit some of the indoor local artisans) sightseeing (avoid the public beach and again the Hippie Outdoor Market) and food (beware of unsanitary conditions, raw fish and meat baking in the hot humid sun and no sign of hand sanitizer or soap and water) but plenty of stray cats and dogs. We were dropped off and given no instructions, directions or otherwise, but told to meet back at the same spot in two hours, which is the perfect amount of time you need (perhaps less). Overall, I enjoyed my relaxing week of relaxation but having said that, I have no plans to return.

FAKE UPGRADE sold to me and iberostar refuses refund. The attitudes of the staff and management are attrociously insulting & downright mean to steal my money and con me with their FALSE PROMISE of spa upgrade when they DO NOT HAVE A SPA UPGRADE!
