    Great relaxing holiday

    If you are looking for a relaxing all inclusive this is it! - Although it is not directly on the beach, there is a convenient shuttle to take you there. The atmosphere is relaxed with an adult "focus". - The staff were hard working (Fransico was amazing!! But also Jiovani, Cecil, Esmeralada and Jasmin). - We thoroughly enjoyed the cocktails and the juice bar. - No shortage of places to sit. We often were at the adults only pool, but the mineral pool was also very nice. - The food was good. My boyfriend is picky and always found something to eat but the food was not amazing. You had to make reservations for the a-la-carte restaurants and they were sometimes difficult to get into, however 20 pesos at the door could change that ;) . The adults only pool also had an amazing snack bar!! Best guacamole ever and Fransisco always made sure our drinks were full. - The room was AMAZING! Best hotel room we have stayed in. Very spacious and luxurious. Beds were comfortable with a beautiful balcony. - Although the resort is hilly there is always someone to take you on the golf cart if you don't want to walk. - We recently stayed at the Grand Palladium Vallarta but preferred the Matlali Resort as it is smaller and more luxurious. - This is a unique all inclusive experience as it is quiet and in the jungle.

    We had the most wonderful stay at Matlali Hills Resort and Spa. This is the perfect getaway for a small group of friends or with your significant other. If you are looking for an intimate place to relax, are open to nature, and want to stay away from a younger crowd of party goers -this is the place for you. The surroundings are stunning and idyllic and perfect for people who enjoy walking (because there is a fair amount of walking to access pools/restaurants etc. around the resort). The front desk was extremely helpful with anything/everything we needed. All the staff, from grounds keepers to house keeping to the spa therapists to the restaurant servers and bar servers (including everyone at the Eva Mandarina Beach Club) work extremely hard and were attentive and friendly. Major shout outs to Jesus, Leo, Antonio (the one who hosted the nightly entertainment), and the main bartender at Sky Bar (we never got his name!). A big thank you goes to Antonio and another huge thank you to ISMAEL (the activities coordinators at the beach). Ismael truly made our trip worthwhile. He has same amount of high energy every single day and you can tell he truly enjoys what he is doing. He’ll always make sure everyone is enjoying themselves at all times so if you get a chance to meet him, tell him Andie and Jeff says hi!! He has such a great attitude and work ethic that seems effortless. Lastly, the front desk was aware that we were celebrating our anniversary and our decorations left us speechless. They went above and beyond and it truly touched us. We had such a fantastic trip and we look forward to coming back in a few years! Thank you to everyone at this resort, it was a stay that we’ll always remember!

    Beach Mandarina

    Loved the beautiful beach and Iamal who cordinated great walks exploring other beaches and the market in la Cruz. Being new to the area, I appreciated the extra attention to our interest! Wish they had more water sports.

    Beach Club Highlight

    The Hotel grounds and buildings are beautiful however there was lots of confusion where everything was located for the first few days because it is a wide spread resort with no connecting buildings and no explanations are given, though a map is provided. Lots of walking involved which we enjoyed but might not be well suited for every traveler. The food and drinks were underwhelming, often missing the mark completely. More vegetarian options needed. We were told we could book reservations for the restaurants with the "concierge" whom me and my friend ended up naming Big Foot because we never saw him the entire time we were there; making reservations impossible. The best part of the trip was definitely the beach and the friendly staff. Ismael and Antonio at the beach club were great! We got to do lots of activities while at the beach which made the days fun and offered a chance to also see a bit of the town.
