The hotel was nice overall but does look like it needs some updating. The worst thing was the air conditioner in our room did not cool the room as adequately. We called twice to either repair the a/c or move to another room. The first maintenance person told us it was old and there was nothing they could do. The second maintenance person tinkered with it but there was no improvement. When we asked about another room we were told they only had a twin bed available. The front desk did sen up a fan which helped some. The hotel was about 3 star and the food was ok but nothing out of the ordinary. Bar service at the pool was

Very good service and friendly / helpful staff. Clean and comfortable room. Very close to the airport and ~30 minutes drive from main attractions in and near downtown. Limited options for vegan / vegetarian food Recommend for families. Walk up beach is relatively small but it wasnt crowded.

This is the 8th time we have stayed here, and we have met others who have been coming here for over 20 years. We love the location and the staff. Honestly we don't even know what the rating is because we know this is where we want to stay. The staff is exceptional!

Great Family Vacation

The hotel and staff were wonderful, the grounds were kept very nice everything was very clean. Only problem with the room was a/c did not work well at all but we managed. Also the hamburgers at snack bar were not good at all. Luis and Leonardo were great servers in restaurants and serving drinks by the pool, Alejandro was the best swim up bartender, super nice and made fantastic drinks. Our kids, ages 10, 12 and 14 never got bored. The pool, beach, volleyball and basketball court kept them happy all day long. The location was perfect, close to airport and boardwalk/downtown shopping. Our Apple Rep Eduardo was especially wonderful helping us plan our day excursion.

Overall staff attentiveness was fair with the exception of the waiters around the pool. They were very on top of things and very friendly. Rooms were much older than what they appeared in the hotel website but they were clean. Grounds were nice and pool was large. Food was good but lacked many options. Wish they had more bar options. The pool bar was the only thing open during the day and Lobby bar open at night. Not much for evening outdoor seating. But again all were nice. Would have like more options all times of the day. All together it was still a nice vacation. You can't beat Puerto Vallarta in the winter.

I highly recommend this resort to anyone who's looking for some relaxation. Their service is exceptional! Food was pretty good, no complaints. It would be better if they weren't serving the same thing every day, fish was excellent. If you're looking for a little nightlife you'll need to go out into the city. Overall it was just what I was looking for, a few day getaway of relaxation. Very family oriented resort.

The room was musty and we found a dead cockroach in the closet. You were not always able to make reservations unless you made them the night before. The food was mediocre at best. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

We did not receive the "deluxe ocean view" room that we paid for, we had to go back to the lobby and request a different room. Our room reeked like mold. There was one small buffet for dinner that featured the same exact food every night. The same with breakfast. No variety at all. Our return shuttle to the airport never showed up. We had to pay for a cab with a promise of being reimbursed. After finally finding the Apple representative we were told to look for, who was NOT named Antonio, my husband was Handed 50 pesos and told he did not have US currency, and refused to pay the $6 we were forced today the cab driver. We were never offered our coupons that were mentioned on the printout I handed to the person checking us in. The service in the pool area STUNK, you received maybe 50% of the drinks ordered. The women working the morning buffet were crabby...unless you were a Spanish speaking person that is, then they were smiling and friendly. I would be mbarrassed to recommend this resort to anyone. The photos n their website must be a decade old, they are not representative of what the place is really like.

Weather was perfect, Food was excellent, Service all the way around was the best. The only thing the hotel needs to work on is the front desk staff seemed a bit arrogant but not enough to raise a complaint over. A perfect trip. Also Apple was very efficient in every way, friendly and comforting.

Premium drink upgrade!!!

I’m a Melia member and this is my families 3rd time at this Melia location. The grounds are always beautiful and well kept by the employees. The beach is not great if you compare with the Caribbean but the pool is big and fun and my 15 yr old n 7 enjoyed every activity. This time we weren’t satisfied with this Melia, We over spend $$ for this location, as for an adult we were not satisfied because we accepted the Premium drink upgrade and it was not worth the $$, only 3 known brands was offered, if we wanted (Gry Gse) that would be the Platinum upgrade, Ridiculous. I rather give $$ in tips to pool waiters. The breakfast buffet was good but the wait in line at 9am was poor. I don’t know if I will visit this Melia location again, much has changed.

Once again it was great!!!

This is our 6th visit to the Melia in Puerto Vallarta and it was great again!!! If you’re looking for a family friendly, unpretentious place to stay with an incredibly friendly, hard working and accommodating staff, I highly recommend the Melia. Check in and check out was a breeze, the food and drinks were good and the staff is first rate. Make sure to check out the nightly entertainment too. What a bunch of hi energy, talented dancers/ athletes!!! We were in awe!!! Francis was lovely and made sure to stop by and personally say good bye to us😊. We’re already planning our next trip back to the Melia, PV 👍🏻 Jim and Amy

Just average, really nothing exceptional and a few quirks
Mon Jul 16 08:16:53 EDT 2018
This was my first time staying at Melia Puerto Vallarta on the standard all inclusive package. PROs - Efficient check in process - Diverse number of restaurants to keep the variety up for long stays - Friendly staff in general - small and not too expensive gift store CONs - Till this day, 3 days after check out I still don't have my invoice. - Overall food quality at the buffet from average to poor. The waiter system for drinks makes no sense and having to make reservations for the themed restaurants makes no sense when it is obvious is not up to capacity. - My room did not have your traditional AC unit, just evaporated air and it was simply too warm during the day to be in the room. - Drink quality for the standard package was also on the poor side, no top brands or even regular commerical brands. The hotel is located in the Marina section which is a plus to get to and from the airport. Unfortunately the overall experience was just average.

pleasantly surprised

I must admit that I didn't know what to expect after reading the reviews here. Am glad to say that I was very pleasantly surprised. my room was lovely and clean. the power plugs could have been in a better position (had to charge my devices on the floor) but the fabulous location and "all inclusive" aspect of it (not to mention clean room, clean sheets) more than made up for it. my room came with meals at all the restos, including drinks - the guacamole and pina colada are highly recommended - sunrise sunset on the private beach was gorgeous. my only gripe was that there was one fine dining restaurant with snooty staff who insisted every day that they were fully booked and were not willing to take my reservation. to this day i do not understand why, but i couldnt be bothered to take it up since i was in puerto vallarta for work - if the westin had not been fully booked I would not have ended up at melia, and i must say that i am very glad the westin was fully booked. i went there to meet other colleagues and it was a grand lovely business hotel - but for someone like me who would not have otherwise had a chance to visit mexico, melia gave me that chance since aside from breakfast, the odd dinner and the sunday before my meetings spent in Melia, I saw nothing but the conference centre. the melia was a welcome respite from long days spent there, and given the chance i would love to go back.

Amazing vacation!

We had an awesome family vacation. The resort restaurants have outstanding food options and delicious authentic Mexican cuisine as well as Japanese, Italian, and other international choices. Customer service is wonderful and is a great place for kids. The rooms have a beautiful view to the ocean and they go beyond to accommodate any request you may have. Definetely recommended!!!
