Profile: North Hotel Zone

When staying in North Hotel Zone, don’t be surprised to see people horseback riding along Playa de Oro. To fulfill your own vacation fantasies, stroll Marina Vallarta for vendors offering fishing charters, sailing excursions, and sunset cruises.

North Hotel Zone in central Puerto Vallarta has a tendency to turn vacationers into night owls thanks to restaurants that provide live music, $1 drinks, bacon-wrapped shrimp, and plenty of people to watch. Whether you’re in the mood for craft beers, fish and chips, or just a light bite, you’ll find it here.

    Unfortunately we didn't even get to stay at this resort because it was closed. When we pulled up we were told by a security guard that they were closed. We weren't told by the resort or Travelocity, but by the security guard as we pulled in to start our vacation. I was annoyed, but tried to stay positive since I was in vacation mode. They honored our reservation at their "sister" resort Buenaventura Grand Hotel & Great Moments. The staff at Buenaventura Grand were amazing! So great and helpful with any want or need or requests. The pools were amazing, the room was small, but nice, and again the staff was amazing! We had a wonderful time.

    My 7th time here. Normally amazing food, service and cleanliness. This time. Hot food was cold and flavorless ( went to bed hungry 5 out of 8 nights!) and Christmas Eve dinner was probably the most u safe thing I have seen since this pandemic started. The people were still amazing and if I ever come back will only be because of them. My moms room (2nd) has mold going up the walls(I’ll try to upload pics if it will let me. But I’ll definitely not recommend or be back until there is a new chef!!! No way. No how. No thanks

    The employees are just phenomenal. They go beyond to serve you and spent good time talking to us. The last time I was there I made a friend that we communicate quite often. They make you feel better than family.

    Termite Infested Room

    There is no elevator which made it a little difficult for my infant and kids. But my room was infest with bugs. Bugs on the bed and bugs in the bathroom. When I brought it to the front desk attention they laughed. The man walked to my room to show me it wasn’t a big deal because they were termites. They ended up moving me to the first floor which was more convenient since there is no elevator. But no apology or partial refund was given for the bugs. The rooms were dirty and I will never stay there again.

    Smokers should be banned ~ This should function as a smoke free facility. Canadian smokers are attracted to this property because of the liberal smoking policy and lax enforcement. Flags and banners should not be permitted to hang from patios and or balconies. Glass should not be permitted in or around pool area.
