Nice room, wonderful beach, but loud/bad wifi
I was here for 2 1/2 days to relax and get healthy again. The beds and pillows were awesome! The room was nice and I really appreciated the refillable water bottle they provided and copious options to refill it! I also liked how the staff defaulted to Spanish, so I didn't feel like I was still in America and got to practice my Spanish. It's a smaller hotel, but the courtyard/beach area was extremely well designed, so I didn't feel like the hotel was small. The beach area was very inviting and the sand was nicer than if we were closer to El Centro. It's about a 45-1 hour walk there by beach and a straight shot via the bus. The food was passable at best. I am a foodie, but with All-inclusives, I expect the food to really suck and it was as I expected. Also, during the middle of the day, I couldn't get a beach chair. I suspect that's because I was there on what was likely to be their busiest days of the year. Instead, I made the best of it and got a towel and just laid on the beach. The wifi was almost non-existent. I could barely check email, so I won't go back if I think I'll have to work for an hour or so. Lastly, this is not a place for quiet. The music (from about 8-9am to 10p-11pm at night) is so loud that I couldn't hear the operator on the phone to complain about the sound. The music was good from soft music in the morning to dance at night. The rooms at the top of the main tower might be quieter. I was on the second floor overlooking the courtyard.

It was just ok
It was overall a B- For a couple averaging mid 30’s in age, we felt a bit young. The food at the buffets was ok but the steak house on site was not good at all. The room was nice but we booked a king and got two double beds. They quickly put the two of them together for us which made it better- but that’s not a king when a crack down the middle! The shower was good with high pressure but it flooded the bathroom each time used. Small Balcony overlooking pool and ocean was very nice. Gym on site was manageable but 1/2 equipment was broke. If they knocked 30% off their price we’d probably stay again, but plenty of other options out there at a better value in PV.

Good6.0
We decided to stay another night in Puerto Vallarta and quickly decided in this hotel due to it's location. We were disappointed in the cleanliness of our room and also the quality of beds, furniture etc. for the amount we paid for one night. It was all inclusive but the food was mediocre. The staff at the restaurants were extremely helpful and offered great service. The front desk was not welcoming or warm. The noise level of the hotel was loud with folks partying till late at night. I would not recommend this hotel especially if you have young children because they do offer free booze which makes for some unruly customers if they have had too much to drink. The one plus is that they do have a private beach area and offer games like ping pong and corn hole for their customers.
