Our stay at the Vallarta Palace in Nuevo Vallarta was one of the funnest, most stressfree, and enjoyable vacations we have had. The service and the food were fantastic. The staff at all levels made us feel very welcome and appreciated, and the facility was immaculate. It was a real bargain for the price, and think we have found a... More

My husband and I just got married at the Vallarta Palace Resort a few weeks ago. It was absolutely perfect! All of the staff was so helpful and Marisol, the wedding coordinator, was great to work with. She was so great at getting back to me during the planning stages, which was something I was a little worried about after... More

We stayed at the Vallarta Palace for our fourth time November 18-25. We have been vacationing at Palace Resorts for almost 20 years and have been Palace Premier members for 16 years. We love the fantastic service, food, and drink at all the Palace Resorts. We like the Vallarta Palace for it's calm waters, wide, walkable beaches, spacious grounds, and... More

My wife and I came here with another couple in September 2011. What sold it for us, was the $1,500 resort credit, which we used on the zip lining, dolphin swim, sunset cruise, and others. The dolphin swim was AMAZING, and the zip lining was incredible. The sunset cruise, was a total bust. It might sound nice, but it wasnt.... More

I spent the week of Nov 5-12, 2011 here. I booked it through the Atlantis Resorts gay vacations website. I was here in Nov 2010 also and couldn't wait to come back! The staff is incredible!

We stayed at the Vallarta Palace for 7 nights with a group of about 40 people. There were a few snags with people checking in who didn't have rooms (when the trip was booked well in advance) and my wife and I were given a room with two double beds and we expected one king size. They were quick to... More

I am a travel agent and just got back from the Vallarat Palace, Nuevo Vallarta. While there I did a site inspection for the agency I work for. There was absolutely nothing that I could fault about at this hotel. The staff were exceptional. Whenever we thanked them with a "gracias" there answer would always be "it was my pleasure".... More

This was our first time staying in resort in Mexico and we loved it. I don't have one bad thing to say about this resort. Everyone was amazing. We had a main floor room, which was nice because we had a patio to sit out on. They would come around so often around the pool asking if we would like... More
