    Wonderful hotel, terrific staff and great location!!!

    My family and I (wife and two kids ages 10 and 8) just got back from a week long vacation at the Puerto Vallarta Marriott. We chose this hotel based in large part on the reviews we had read on Tripadvisor, so we went with really high expectations. I can say with great joy, that the hotel not only met our expectations, but exceeded them. First, the location is great. I have been to PV four other times over the past 20 years and this was my first time staying in the Marina area. Not only is the area close to the airport, but it has tons of shops and restaurants to try that are no more than a 10 minute walk from the lobby. Also, and very important to me, is the fact that the Marina area is very safe and the hotel is set in between many high end luxury condos. Second, the property itself is beautiful. Although the Marriott is a little older than some of the other hotels in PV, it has gone through some very nice renovations, including the lobby, pool and the rooms, so it is definitely on par with any other hotel in PV in terms of quality. As for the restaurants, we tried all of them and must admit that Mikado was our favorite, not just in PV, but maybe anywhere. All three other restaurants were also great, including Champions. Our waiter Carlos at Champions was attentive and genuinely cared about making sure we enjoyed our meal(s). Thank you Carlos. Third, the service was outstanding. Without question, the highlight of our stay was the service we received at the pool from Raul (La Nina). He treated all of us like royalty and made our stay extra special. He always had drinks ready for us when we arrived at the pool, made terrific suggestions and always had a smile on his face. Raul's service and attention to detail spoiled us and his service has set the bar for all other servers/waiters very high. Thank you immensely Raul. Also, I must mention the great bell staff, especially Ramon, who went out of his way to ensure that my family and I were always tended to. Specifically, on our last day, the ATM at the hotel was not working, so I did not have enough cash on me to pay for the Taxi. Instead of having the Taxi stop at an ATM off-site (which I was willing to do), Ramon offered to drive my family and I to the airport in one of the Hotel's vehicles. It may not sound like a lot, but it is these small gestures that make/made all the difference. All in all, it was an amazing vacation. I don't typically like to stay at the same hotel more than once, as I like trying new places. However, after staying at the Marriott last week, I know that I will be back again many more times in the future.

    Great service! Clean rooms!

    Had a lovely stay. Service was incredible all around from poolside to restaurants. Eduardo at the pool, and Ricardo at Las Casitas were exceptional. hotel is near airport so a 10-15 minute uber or taxi in to town but I didn’t feel like I missed out on anything. The view was spectacular!

    Relaxing, attentive and great costumer service

    This is our fourth year coming to visit Puerto Vallarta but our home away from home is this hotel. The staff are very attentive, and prompt. The staff in the pool, and the restaurants are great, not to mention the general manager Daniel Alvarez. He recognizes the needs of others and reaches out to lend a helping hand. Makes us feel like we are at home. Whenever we have had a problem, he comes up with a creative solution. Great hotel amenities, great people.

    Can't wait to return

    We visited Puerto Vallarta and chose to stay at the Marriott based on a very favorable recommendation provided by my brother, who had visited the resort previously with his family. Now, I get the pleasure of recommending it to my friends! Our experience at the Marriott Puerto Vallarta was simply amazing! From the moment we arrived, and throughout our stay, we were greeted with smiling faces by everyone we encountered. Noe and Guillermo were first to welcome us and arranged for our luggage transport while we checked in with a smiling Bella who quickly got our rooms together, provided an overview of the property, and directed us to our rooms where Noe was waiting with our bags. We experienced each of the restaurants on the property and we enjoyed them all, but our favorites were Mikado (Sushi and Hibachi), La Estancia (Mexican), and Las Casitas (Poolside). Champions was good but the others were on another level. By the way, although its not considered a full service restaurant, Los Mangos Deli was our daily stop for great tasting coffee, pastries, and snacks. Our first night, our children were invited to "practice chef" under the supervision of the Hibachi chef at Mikado - wow what a memorable experience! And the food... delicious!! We visited La Estancia on another night and were pleasantly surprised. We were one of only a few families there that evening, but the experience was phenomenal. Our server Mauricio was exceptional, the enchiladas tasty, and the atmosphere welcoming. We wanted to visit again but ran out of time. Our most frequent dining experience came at Las Casitas where our poolside attendants were remarkable. The hospitality they provided made us feel like family - not guests. Whether it was Carlos who always remembered our drink preferences (pinatas and smoothies) and constantly checked to ensure our needs were met, or Ricardo who greeted us by name and a friendly handshake. Carlos and Ricardo will always be remembered because their qualities and gestures are purely genuine. I must mention the amazing SPA - OHTLI is one of the best hotel spa facilities we have experienced. The relaxing treatments, the foot baths, cold pool, hot pool, various showers and overall amenities; the accommodating staff members, and the soothing aroma as you approached the facility made you feel at peace. So much so, we enjoyed multiple treatments during our stay. Thank you to Sara and Adelin for making us feel like royalty! During our visit, we had an opportunity to meet Ramon whose sense of humor and genuity was refreshing. Ramon arranged for taxi services, ensured we paid the fair amount, welcomed us back from our off-resort trips, and more importantly made a point to get to know us. During our last day, he arranged for our luggage to be transported to the car that was waiting to drive us to the airport. As we said "adios" to the staff and entered the vehicle, Ramon was seated in the drivers seat. We thought it was one of his humorous gestures until he started driving when we discovered it was his way of sending us off. This is something we will always remember! We celebrated our 20th anniversary with our friends and family... Our friends and family at the Marriott Puerto Vallarta! We cannot wait to return next year! From the bottom of our hearts, a very big "Thank you" to everyone who made our experience memorable. .. especially David whose best staff in the business made us feel like family!

    12 years in a row

    We have spent a week or more at the Marriott Puerto Vallarta for the last twelve years and will go again in 2019. Away from the downtown hubbub and near the Marina, so close to a number of very good restaurants in addition to the hotels restaurants. A trip to downtown PV however, is only about 15 minutes and $10-15USD (or the bus for almost nothing). Big decisions are pool or beach, nap time and where to go to dinner. The number one reason for a 5-star rating is the staff, many who have been with the hotel for over 20 years. Never had a bad interaction with anyone and more than a few are now friends and remember us year to year. The hotel has recently done some needed renovations including exterior paint, new lobby, updated guest rooms and a new pool this summer.
