TripAdvisor Traveller Reviews
We travelled here for a week with 2 grandparents, 4 adults and 4 grandkids. We had an amazing trip!

This hotel is an easy drive from the PV airport, only about 45 mins. It is very close to Sayulita and Punta Mita for fun day trips and lots of good surf breaks near by. The food is fantastic and the service is outstanding with very friendly staff who genuinely want to help make your stay lovely. We have stayed in Nuevo Vallarta before but I would chose this hotel over that. Gorgeous pool, gardens and rooms. The entertainment staff of Marco, Aly, Nancy, Alexis, Alejandro, Eduardo, Ruby, and Gloria were so great! Alejandro and breakfast and lunch always had a big smile for us. The nightly shows were really entertaining. We were very well taken care of.

Had a great time at Iberostar Playa Mita. Service was excellent. Lots of activities to do or just enjoy the quiet relaxation .Everyone was very attentive. Alex, Ale, Nancy, Ruby, Alejandra, Ana, also bartenders and head chef. We enjoyed the shows in the evening golfed one day and traveled to Salulita one day. Only Downside was the food was a little bland and not always as hot as we liked. Hope to get back there sometime!

We booked this hotel last minute and traveled with family members ranging in age from 6 to early 70s. Overall, we had a great time. The staff was excellent and we found everyone to be very friendly and accommodating. I liked how you cannot wake up at the break of dawn and reserve chairs...really cuts down on the "towel game". The pool area was great with a variety of activities taking place throughout the day that you could either participate in or watch. We liked how the little kiddie pool with the slides and stuff was very close to the main pool so that it was easy to go back and forth. Drink service around the pool and the beach was consistent. Pool was large and a nice temperature. Beach was also really nice. You could walk down and check out little rock formations and tide pools and we saw lots of crabs and little fish. The kids loved it. The ocean in front of the hotel is a great combination of some waves (for boogie boarding, etc.) and calm enough to actually get in. We were able to purchase the kids a boogie board at the hotel but I'd recommend trying to bring your own if you have room and you think that's something you or your kids would enjoy. The sunsets over the ocean each night were beautiful. The food...pretty consistent with what you would expect at a large all-inclusive. There wasn't really anything remarkably good or bad. The buffet was the kids' favorite and we liked how there is a buffet available (at lunch) both up near the lobby and also right by the pool. The kids' other favorite was the soft-serve ice cream that was available (self-serve) by the pool. We did have a few issues during our stay. Our room would NOT cool down for the first few nights. We have traveled to Mexico many times and understand some heat and humidity is normal; however, this was excessive. They came to service it several times and each time assured us it was fixed. It wasn't. It was not until our travel agent contacted someone at the hotel that the issue was finally resolved, but we had a few very warm nights until then. Another negative (for us, at least) was the way the beach was not directly accessible from the pool area. We like to go back and forth, and it's not a short walk at this hotel. You can either wait for and then cram into an elevator with others (kinda gross because most everyone is a combo of hot/sweaty/wet/sandy) or take several flights or a ramp down to the beach. The walk was fine for most of us but not the older members of our party. There are also lots of vendors on the beach, which may not bother you but was a negative for us. Random note...both of our kids ended up having to visit the hotel doctor for different reasons during our stay. Can't say enough good things about this experience...the onsite clinic is convenient and clean, and the doctor was thorough and diagnosed the problems and the required medicines were right there onsite. When traveling with kids it can easily ruin a trip to have to deal with something like an ear infection. Was it cheap, no. But we were able to get everything under control and get the kids back to enjoying their vacation so quickly thanks to the onsite clinic. One last observation...we traveled with kids so this obviously wasn't an issue for us, but there were a lot of kids. I would likely choose another property if planning an adult-only vacation. But the kids loved this hotel and are already asking to go back!

2nd Time, not so great

It's very rare I go back to the same resort twice. I like trying new places and areas; but in April 2016 I came here and absolutely loved it. You can read my previous review. I loved the remoteness, the beautiful beach, the friendly staff, the great service, the clean rooms with great housekeeping, the great entertainment staff to keep my son busy and having fun, and the food was pretty good. These things combined to make it a 4 to 4.5 start last time we went, so decided to go again on Jan 6th this year. I hate when things change... Although it is still a great location, with a great beach, and great rooms with great housekeeping, everything else had changed. The staff seemed much less happy, much less friendly and also some staff we're no longer there. The service dropped down to a 3 star and the food down to a 3 star, sometimes even less. Capacity was low, so they decided to reduce staff and close restaurants. What a shame. Of course, it was still a great trip, we had great weather and the resort and beach itself is great. But I will never return again. Fair well Iberostar Playa Mita.

Worth the drive

North from Puerto Vallarta about a 30 minute cab ride is the Iberostar Mita. A 5 star hotel. However, we found due to its location, its cost was less than many 4 star hotels located in town. The savings made up for the cab fare for any rides we had to take into town. The upside, we are in a 5 star hotel. It faces west ( which gives you breathtaking sunsets every night), is in its own gated community area, and pretty much the only people on the beach are a few vendors and the limited number of guests. Most excursions depart from the Puerto Vallarta area, but we didn't mind the extra time involved. Once thing to keep in mind...the Ameca River discharges into the ocean at Puetro Vallarta. Half the bay looked like chocolate milk. After seeing that a few times, we knew we made the right choice in location. Great food, staff was always working hard to keep things clean, and the hand-made furniture and beautiful artwork / sculptures were a joy to look at. Loved the grounds, pool area, and having adult beverages on the west bar to watch the sunset.
