    Pool was the best part, everything else..ok

    Came here for 6 days with my 2 kids ages 8 and 6 and my husband. This hotel is located in the marina- so just know it’s about 20-25 min anytime you want to go to the Malecon. There are a few good restaurants in this area, some are just higher priced than downtown. (They do have uber here now too though!) The room type- We got the junior ocean view suite room where there’s a wall separating another room almost where the kids stayed (no door to separate the rooms but there is another bathroom). The sofa bed is not really a “pull out”, it’s literally like 2 uneven sofa cushions you smoosh together. For my kids, it was fine, but it would be too small for an adult. Technically we supposedly were “VIP” because of this room type but I didn’t see anything different except a small area they called the VIP lounge which was literally some tables and a plate of pastries and a cooler with ice and some canned sodas sitting out and upgraded alcohol. We did enjoy he room layout overall though. So the food- if you are coming here and planning to not leave and eat here every meal, you will be extremely disappointed. We ate off site every single night and a couple lunches too. The food was really really mediocre and some stuff stale and not fresh. Also didn’t help that 2 of the restaurants were adults only. The pool snack bar never rotated the food selections- it was just hot dogs, potato chips, stale popcorn, stale chips to make nachos and some fruit- would have been nice to see more variety there since that’s where you spend the majority of your time. Again- I didn’t have high expectations on this part after reading other reviews and we like exploring, but just beware. Kids club- unless your kids are 4 or younger- forget it- I would never leave my kids there they would have freaked out. It was so lame. They also had a delapidated mini golf course (which they charged for), and some football and ping pong tables outside near the pool. The pool was great- really was enjoyable- they play music all day and they have little activities here and there you can participate in. And you can rent balls and stuff to play with. There’s also koi fish, turtles and iguanas that live on site. There are nightly shows they have and honestly my kids enjoyed them all. I thought a few of them were a little boring but again- more geared to entertaining the kids so that is cool The property itself- I would say it’s a little run down, could use a makeover. It works and it’s clean, and the setting is beautiful obviously but just not top notch by any means. Also the towels are literally falling apart in the bathrooms. Probably need to replace those. The staff- I would say overall the staff were very nice, however, I never seemed to get a solid answer if I had a question about places to eat or things to do- like no confidence or good ideas which I’m not used to with hotel staff. The pool staff worked very hard getting drinks etc and housekeeping also did a great job We had a great trip overall- we love PV! These are just my thoughts to hopefully help anyone else looking at this hotel- it’s just average with a great pool!

    Old and Tired

    We will not stay here ever again. There was mold in various places in our room and it smelled horrible. We had to buy a couple of air fresheners. There was rotted wood in the bathroom, mold on the curtains and seat cushion. There were white stains on the bed skirts and rust on all of the metal fixtures in the room. The bolt lock on our door didn't work. There were small bugs crawling on the furniture. The AC didn't work well and the humidity in the room made everything damp. I have been to PV many times and I know outdoors the humidity can be a problem but never has everything been so damp and gross inside. The food was awful and the selection not great. The pool was big but the water was too warm. The pool bar opened at 11am and closed at 6pm, which we thought was really weird. The restaurants don't open until 7pm which is late for us and not convenient. We paid extra to upgrade to all-inclusive premium which included better quality drinks but could figure out where in the resort to get those drinks. We pre-paid this trip through Expedia but ended up checking out after the second night and eating the cost we paid for the remaining three nights. They said they would refund the cost I paid for the upgrade for the days it was not used, but it has been over a week and no refund yet. We got a killer deal on Expedia for the other nights of our stay. I don't how anyone could give this place a good rating. It's terrible, trust me.

    First time in Mexico and looking for a place to rest your head

    Lets start by saying that this is the first time we have been to Mexico, normally we travel to Jamaica but this was a last minute trip for just my husband and I. We were a bit skeptical with the previous reviews but thought we may as well try. I chose this hotel because of the location. It was close to the marina, not too close to downtown so less hustle, but a short cab ride away. The food: I am a goody person, we like to cook a lot. The food was absolutely terrible here. Breakfast I drank the green juice as it seemed the safest thing to have. All the food items were cold, the bacon as hidden with the omelette lady. It wasn't kept warm so it was too hard and cold. The fresh fruit was good, but people were touching it with their hands, it really grossed me out. Lunch: There was the lunch buffet, and the snack shack. The lunch buffet had some hamburgers, tacos, salad, and normally a fish or chicken dish. Again it was cold. We waiting for a fresh burger since it would be hot. The snack shack had popcorn, fresh cold potato chips, and chicken wings. It was okay but I didn't care for it. Dinner: We did not eat at the A-la-carte, we tried to the buffet which there is 2 of them. Again food cold, tasteless. Only good item was they're pork chops. They were delicious. The deserts were also very good. After the first night we decided that we would walk across to the Marina and eat over there. Thankfully there was a couple of good restaurants. We ate at the pancake and waffle, the Brazilian, sticky fingers and a few others. The rooms were big, dated, not too clean. They defiantly need to upgrade the rooms, just the basic finishings would really make the stay more bearable. The AC didn't work well and always had the smell of cigarette smoke coming through. We went to the Walmart and purchased a fan as we couldn't stand the stagnant air in the room. the fridge was restocked daily with beers ands of drinks. The bartender in lobby bar not sure of his name, but he always remembered our drink order, welcomed us with peanuts everyday. Thank you. The pool waiter was terrible he forgot my drink every time I was down there, not a big deal but he tend to cater to the other Mexican first before even acknowledging me and others. I was tipping well too, but just got up and got my own drinks. the staff were always friendly, smiling, and that made this hotel stay pleasant. It is true;y too bad they didn't fix the food issue, because this hotel could definitely be a wonderful place. The beach is clean, nice sand , not rocky, rough water and there is a sea urchin warning. So we didn't do the beach too much. The hot water went out in the hotel, for approx 4 hours, but did get fixed. The fire alarm went off at 1am because of people smoking in the rooms, they addressed the issue quickly. There was a awful smell in the rooms and elevator, it wasn't consistent but would recommend getting some air freshener. We used uberX which was cheaper and easier than the taxi. save approx 35 peso each time. Not much but considering we were always leaving to go eat at other places it made it a bit easier. This is definitely geared to the Mexicans, and families. Which is fine, but they tend to give the attention more to them . Checkin was easy, checkout was a nightmare. Checkout a bit earlier to avoid waiting for over an hour. Would I return again? NO Would I recommend ? Depends on to who

    Great service, friendly staff, decent food

    We had a great stay because the staff were really friendly and had quite funny. Gemma, one of the hostess, was really sweet and just a great person to talk too. The nightly entertainment performers (Mariano, Alberto, Louise Miguel, Francia, Alison and Beatrice) are all incredibly talented and performed with a lot of love. The hotel however can use some help when it comes to the food since it is quite repetitive. It tastes good but after a week of the seeing the same thing it just gets boring. The drinks too are only decent. The room we stayed in had no major issues so our experience was very nice. The bathroom was very beautiful and I loved the amount of space there was. The bathtub was also very nice. Air conditioning was no problem for us so we were happy. Over all the hotel has a beautiful landscape and design plan and makes you feel as though you are transported into a peaceful rainforest. If food can be improved I would definitely go back however it was lacking in that regard.
