January 2019 Vacation

This hotel staff from maintenance to front desk are always happy, helpful and courteous. They work around the clock to keep this property clean. The entertainment team was always upbeat and kept guest engaged.

Awesome vacation!
Jan 30 2019
What an awesome vacation. Hotel was very clean with generally excellent service. Check in can be a slight problem as you have two desks handling everyone. No counter. On arrival the manager had us come to a separate area due to the long lines. Room was nice but not very large. Our housekeeper Consuelo Manuel was excellent. We never wanted for anything in the room. Ground were beautiful and well maintained. Resort big enough but not too big. Never had a problem getting chairs by the pool or the beautiful beach. The beach was amazing. My wife and I could safely walk for miles. Food was excellent especially in the Los Olivos ala cart. David (captain) and his team Rafael, Alexis and Ismael became like family. Erik was our server most every morning for breakfast.......amazing. We loved our stay. We definitely would go back. Our bell boy on leaving was J. Wismora. Very friendly and helpful. We are already homesick to go back to Puerta Vallarta and the Occidental!

We have been coming to this Resort since 2006. There have been a lot of changes over the years but they have all good and make us rave about our vacation and bring us back year after year. Most important is the WONDERFUL staff . We feel like family when we return every year. They all work so hard and provide Top notch service with a huge smile. Some of the staff has been there 22 years. That speaks volumes. There are so many repeat vacationers we have met over the years which makes it fun returning every year. But most important is the wonderful staff that makes this place our home away from home.

This was one of the best Apple Vacations I have ever booked. The only problem we had was with the Local company. They said they were to busy at the Riu hotel to help us with any trips or information.

We would probably not come back to the resort without the upgrade. Although we like the small size of it.

Excellent vacation resort, 5 star staff.

This was our first time going to Mexico. We could not have picked a better place to stay. Beautiful beach, awesome food, very friendly staff who continuously went out of their way to provide above and beyond service. Heated pools, games room, volleyball, gym, all these places were very well done. This is truly a 5 star resort. The only thing they could do to make it better would be free wifi. However, the disconnect was also appreciated. Again, we could have not had better service, the staff there all deserve a raise!

I am in love with this place

My husband and I have now stayed at this resort twice on our annual vacation and we will most definitely be returning! The staff is extremely friendly and very accommodating. We especially enjoyed the activities staff members. Daniel,Roberto, Juan, Gabriel, and the rest of the staff ( I can’t remember the rest of their names) were an absolute blast to hang out with and really did a great job getting people to participate. They truly made this trip phenomenal for us and we look forward to hopefully seeing some of them again. This resort is also on the best chunk of beach in my opinion. Nice soft sand and waves just big enough to have fun in. If I was to complain about anything it would be the buffet food. Particularly the breakfast buffet. It’s not terrible but not great. The evening restaurants are very good. 100% recommend this hotel.

Our new favorite destination vacation

We stayed at the Occidental Nuevo Vallarta Feb 7 - 15th, 2019 with a group of family members. The food was great, resort was clean, well-manicured and beautifully positioned on the beach and to near-by attractions. And most important, the staff was friendly, helpful and accommodating, unmatched in any of our travels so far! We cannot wait to return.

An excellent getaway

A very nice trip in an excellent location. enjoyed the service and the restaurants. a few issues with cleaning staff and room service but an excellent value for the money. a beautiful QUIET resort. not a "party atmosphere"
