35th Wedding Anniversary trip

We got a fantastic deal through Apple Vacations and couldn't pass up the opportunity to spend our 35th Anniversary in beautiful Mexico! We traveled mid August and for a few days there it was super crowded but this didn't interfere with us having the time of our lives! We stayed in a Spa Tower room that had a fabulous view of the ocean and sunsets! The room was so comfortable and clean and the staff were so attentive and nice! We only made it to 2 of the ala carte restaurants...Mexican & French. The French restaurant's decor was designed like an old fashioned train dining car and was lovely! We loved the Mexican restaurant and went back a second time. The buffet and poolside food were consistently good...we certainly never went hungry! The pools, beach, drinks were all fantastic! We didn't want to leave! We couldn't wait to get back so we recently booked another trip for December! 4 mos is too long! Don't hesitate to visit the Iberostar in Punta Mita...it's paradise! More>

We got a great deal for this hotel for our mom's 70th birthday celebration. There were 13 of us and not one complaint about not finding something to eat. We really enjoyed the pool activities and the wait staff at the pool. We got the same spot at the pool everyday, no matter what time we got there. We enjoyed the Hibachi place and sushi night at the buffet. We emailed the hotel ahead of time to request adjoining rooms, and this was accommodated without issue. The tennis court is interesting - Har-Tru surface. Bring your own balls! We also loved the "disney" themed show - amazing finale! Lastly - a shout out to the bartender inside the restaurant by the pool. I don't know his name, but he looks like Pitbull. He made the most AMAZING margaritas! More>

This place was amazing. The wife and I travel to Mexico and do all inclusive regularly. This was our third trip to different parts of Mexico in the last 10 months. Don't waste your time or money on paying for a transfer, get a cab it will cost you 65 bucks to get there and 50 bucks to return to the airport. Grab a cocktail in a to go cup before u leave the airport and enjoy the small town and just bike views. You can upgrade your room to beachfront if you want but not necessary because they're all amazing garden views and super lush green and you spend your time at the pool and beach anyway. Book ur reservations for restaurants at 8:00 if u can. This allows you maximum time at the pool or beach before eating but you still finish in time to the Las Vegas shows they have every night at 9:30. MARIO, find him and get to know him as he is not only in the shows but he runs some activities by the pool and will give you the lay of the land, he speaks for five languages and is so cool. Really helped make our trip. Monse hooked my wife up with a massage that we signed up for at the pool and then she got later that afternoon and said it was one of the best massages if she's ever had, and my wife gets massages in Vegas and New York on a regular basis. Food was great, not just the specialties but the buffet. The booze was amazing..... last but not least, Rogelio at the swim up bar made us feel like family. This guy truly put the cherry on top. My wife and I will be going back ASAP. More>

This was my first time ever out of the country, and I was a bit scared in an unfamiliar territory. My travel agent booked my vacation through FunJet Vacations where I flew non-stop on Sun Country Airlines. I was a bit hesitant in that my transfer service was in a sedan, which are all a bit old and rundown, and I was by myself (not my option, that was the service provided with the package). However, the drivers I had both to the resort and back to the airport were very friendly and professional. They were good "tour guides" as I saw so much local culture on our 45 minute drive from PVR to Playa Mita. The resort was absolutely gorgeous!! I have never felt so safe in the walls of a large resort where I felt like I was treated like royalty. The main building where the lobby area is house is pretty much open air with a roof over it, the shops were gorgeous, food was tasty (hey, its free...who am I to complain!), and the staff were absolutely wonderful. I did have a spa room, so it was quite a walk from the main lobby area, which I typically prefer on a resort setting anyways. I'm young and the walk was very relaxing. The spa is the best room to get a view of the beach and ocean right from your balcony! The concierge were super helpful, although, I did learn in a funny way that their dates are written dd/mm/yyyy and their weather temps are given in Celsius. The shows were a bit cheesy but fun and interactive. The activities crew are not pushy, which is great because I was there for the ocean, sunbathing, reading, and relaxing. And this is the place to do just that as it is quite secluded with no other resorts around. Being alone in another country, I didn't want to leave the resort so being in a city was not necessary. I will return again, but I do suggest getting the spa room if you are traveling alone or with a partner. They only have king beds, but their is a sofa sleeper. They provide every amenity possible including liter bottles of water to use to brush your teeth or wash your cups. Smaller bottles of water, juice, sodas (coke products), and beer are provided. I did bring my tablet with me to find they had excellent wifi free of charge. So I would look up translations for messages to write my cleaning and beverage ladies. I wrote a note on the first day requesting that I only have water, juice, and sugar free sodas (I'm diabetic), and they took care of it on their very next service! Not only that, but they kept that up throughout my entire stay without being reminded. I received the usual towel animals, chocolates, the turn down service was beautiful, and even extra amenities where needed. They even provided bug replant towelettes. If there are any concerns that I have, it would be the dampness of the rooms. However, this cannot be avoided as the hotel is on the ocean front, and especially the block of room I was in. The sheets of the bed feel damp, but I watched the cleaning lady change the sheets entirely on the two days I was still in my room. More>

Quality hotel, lovely beach but noisy pool area

Impressive hotel with friendly, helpful (except 1) staff. First night had issues with air con dripping on to our floor making it very slippery- we were told it was due to balcony doors not being shut but exactly the same the next morning when we woke up (balcony doors definitely shut all night!) We also had no bedding for sofa bed for my 15 year old son after we had dinner and struggled to get this made up - not what you need after a very long journey. We upgraded after first night to rooms looking out to the sea (worth the extra money) - stunning view and a better location for us within the hotel (no air con issues in new room!) Rooms with walk in shower are better than those with the bath/shower. Facilities are good - weakness for us was not having a quiet adults only pool. The pool was lovely but very noisy around the swim up bar and often too full. The entertainments team used a microphone from about 10.15am to 5pm announcing all the activities that were about to take place every 15 minutes. This was very loud and a big negative for us - we wanted a peaceful holiday! We ended up paying to go to La Tranquilla next door to use their facilities to avoid the noise - 7 peaceful pools with very few people - we wished we'd stayed there! The beach was amazing - it is not groomed but beautifully natural with warm sea and fun waves. The buffet food was very good and a good variety of food was offered (the part we were not looking forward too as not great buffet fans). The themed restaurants varied - Japanese is more about a 'show' than the actual food served. It gave us some great photos but pretty poor food (we never even got our soup!) The Mexican (which has some bad reviews) was surprisingly good - the steak house was VERY disappointing and Orient express very good. we did manage to get our bookings for each restaurant but definitely need to book as soon as you arrive as they get full very quickly. The level of service generally was very good and overall we had a nice holiday - this unfortunately just wasn't quite what we had hoped for. More>
