Good but not as good
This is a beautiful resort and we had a great time last year therefore we have decided to come back this year. Staff is very friendly and pleasant, but we have seen things is going downhill. Food is not as good as last year, there is less amenities in our room compared with last year. A few drawers are broken in our room too. What makes me disappointed the most is that I reported to front desk and housekeeping my pajamas was missing after they cleaned up my room and hopefully someone would look into it but nobody never got back to me about that afterwards! I know I might not get it back but I expect at least someone will leave a message to me and maybe apologize to me?!? We have two more days here and we probably won’t come back since there are many other resorts in Pvr that we can try. Will miss the friendly staff though....
Beautiful resort but don’t eat the food
The resort is beautiful and the views are breathtaking but beware of the food! I Was super sick the whole trip. I went to see the on-site doctor who not only changed me $150 bucks but he kept backpedaling with his diagnosis. When I first saw him he said it was food poisoning and advised me that I should not eat food from outside the resort. Once I told him that everything I consumed was on premise he said never mind I think you are just having issues with the humidity. Aside form the food the time share sales people took rejection way too personally.
Great All-Inclusive Resort
This was our first time to Puerto Vallarta and we had a great time. The staff was very friendly and the amenities were very nice. There are a lot of great activities (beach volleyball, ping pong, chess, swimming pools, ocean, spa, restaurants, stores, adventure tours - zip lining, snorkel, live shows, etc.). Great hospitality and a fun overall experience.
Celiac Heaven... Carnival International Buffet
Traveling with celiac is so stressful! The Carnival International Buffet was AMAZING! At every meal, the chef showed me what was safe from the buffet and prepared special dishes for me several times! I felt so spoiled! Rodolfo, Chef Rafa, Rafael, Carlos, Nicolas, and all the staff went out of their way to take care of me! The food was always excellent and the service was always outstanding! With celiac, sometimes I feel so left out watching others eat amazing things while I eat ANOTHER salad without croutons. I never felt left out! I felt so special! It was so great to have amazing food and not stress about the fear of sickness from cross contamination. It's not a very good vacation if you're constantly afraid of the food. This was an amazing experience in every way! The last morning there was my husband's birthday. They prepared a special dessert on a beautifully decorated plate and sang to him. It was all so incredible! The resort is beautiful! Our room was wonderful, and the view from our balcony was just gorgeous! Everyone at the resort was great! Everywhere we went, there was always staff nearby ready to help us in any way. I look forward to the day we can go back and enjoy this beautiful resort and amazing restaurant and fabulous staff again! What an amazing experience!!
Loved the location so it was easily accessible to the city by foot and car. We found better rates using Uber instead of taxis. Rooms above a certain floor seem to all have an ocean view. Hotel is right on the beach so you're certain to hear the ocean waves at night. Nightly music can seem annoying at first, but most ends by 10:30pm. All staff (except for one restaurant manager) was extremely friendly and accepting of my practice of broken Spanish. It takes a day to get used to the restaurant hours, and I highly recommend reading the daily schedules to make the most of the resort experience.
