Not disappointed, great location, walking distance to Bucerias and bus to PV downtown, lots to do. Property is very well kept, always cleaning, pruning etc very nice location. Not a five star, but well looked after If you are older and want quiet go to buildings 5 or 6, adults only, newer as well, but you are further to the beach. We like building 3, close to everything, but can be a bit noisy due to shows at night. Staff is excellent, very helpful and friendly, thanks to Julio Soto for getting us the room we wanted. Beach is great, you can walk all day, swimming is safe, but not blue water as it is the Pacific. Bars are quick and courteous no problems. Food is good, lots to choose from, but not high end five star fare. Rooms are well appointed, beds comfy, very clean, maids are friendly. In your shower if you get cold water out of the hot water tap check the cold water tap it will be there. Lots of western Canadians and in Nov a large number of local folks, all nice people with well behaved kids, but lots of them. Free Wifi is available, but not in the room, main lobby and building 4 by the store. Good time had by all, and we will be back. More>

The resort is pretty nice. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. The beach is really nice. They have several pools, many of which are for kids. The food is very good and the staff are really nice and helpful. The A la carte restaurants were very good and a pleasure to eat at. The buffet was also very good and had a large selection everyday. It is easy to find all the facilities but also spread out enough that the areas are not cramped and over whelmed with people. The rooms need work and to be upgraded. We had lizards in our bathroom all the time - didn't bother us much but I'm sure it would bother others. There was no mini fridge like other resorts have. We were only given one bottle of water a day - we had our son with us who still needs formula 2 or 3 times a day so that was definitely a pain for us. We had to take our empty water bottle down the bar everyday and refill it or wait for another one to arrive after our room was cleaned. When we arrived our bathroom smelled like a locker room - it was very unpleasant. We had to pay for a safe key unlike many other resorts we've been to that have electronic ones. We definitely thought the key should be included in the price of the room. The crib they gave us to use was also partially broken. One of the people in our group had been stung by a sting ray one day in the ocean. It cost them $300+ to receive 3 shots and antibiotics so I would definitely recommend buying insurance before traveling. The staff were all very nice and attentive and were very good with our son and the other small children we were with. I was prepared to give this resort a "very good" rating - until our last day at check out when they accused my mother and father in law of breaking the tv and stealing blankets! They claimed the base of the tv was cracked. Which is pretty hard to do unless it was moved in which they had no reason to do so. The MAIDS move the tv to clean. And as far as blankets being stolen - this is about the most ridiculous thing I've heard in a while. All this caused them to miss the bus to airport and arrive much later than expected. This really changed my mind about this resort and I will not be returning solely based on these ridiculous and uncalled for accusations. Of course these things do happen and the guests are at fault but definitely not in this case. Perhaps this resort should keep a better account of their room conditions. More>

Always a pleasure!

My family has visited this resort many times. The staff are always wonderful, food and bevys plentiful with clean rooms:) This is a relaxed atmosphere resort and they have fantastic nightly shows. Many fellow Canadians in the winter and the cultural pleasure of lots of Mexicans holidaying there in the summer. Kids club is non existent so don't book for that. I have taken my kids to this resort and we all still had a blast and we would and will go again. Love PV:) More>

The resort is just that a RESORT. They really cater to visitors and the all inclusive is for everything at all 7 resturants and for all the water sports, which includes free kayaking, free sailing on a hobie cat, free boogie boards & biking. They also have 5 swimming pools one is just for adults and it is enforced, there is 6 buildings and all are very well maintained. There is a bar at every pool, the beach is fantastic about 400 yards long for the resort. We swam in the ocean every day for the 14 days we were there and only in the pools 3 times because of how warm the ocean was, you actually don't even have to leave this resort because they have everything. The only draw back was that you have to rent a safe and no irons come with the room you have to book an iron for only 3 hours. Wifi is in the lobby of building 4 and building 1. You also must see the iguana tree where there is about 40 iguanas that they let kids feed as well as us older kids also known as adults. More>

Good Value

The resort is fine. Facilities are good, food is good, staff are friendly. Location however, is great. The beach in Bucerias is much better than in PV and so you get a much better beach experience for the money. This resort is also well situated in relation to the town. You can hop on one of the free pedal bikes provided by the resort and tour around. The shows they put on every night in their pavilion are actually much better than any of the other resort shows I've seen at much better rated resorts. The best part are the multiple beach-side open-air massage tents. For 200 pesos you can enjoy an hour long massage right on the beach, minutes down the beach from the resort. Go see Octavio and he will make sure you get the best massage of your life. Get the ocean view rooms if you can. They border right onto the ocean and you can enjoy some pretty epic sunsets from your balcony. More>
