We very much enjoyed our eight days at the Palace, and would not hesitate to recommend it to our friends. The resort, both the public areas and our room, was very clean. We never had difficulty finding a place around the pool or on the beach. Service in every area of the resort was fantastic overall. We found the food... More

We went to Palace Resorts once before for our honeymoon. Aventura Spa Palace and loved it! We moved from Washington DC to Oregon so this is a lot closer to us. One slight issue that Angie was wonderful at. Our room was right above the lobby bar and was very very loud. We were moved to 6071 and it was... More

WOW...what an incredible place. It started when we arrived at the resort & were greeted with cool towels & a warm welcome. We than checked in with ease & received a glass of champagne & I received flowers. They were so nice & when I asked if we had a nice room she said yes, but it was not yet... More

Our group of 5 of women stayed from 1/19 - 1/26/08 for our second annual visit to Vallarta Palace. Once again, it was wonderful all around. The staff was very helpful, personable, and even, at times, entertaining. The shows in the evening were pretty good with one, the "Circus", quite amazing with fire dancers, acrobats, jugglers and more. The food... More

This was our second stay at the Vallarta Palace in Nuevo Vallarta. Wow, how things have changed there in just one year. On our first visit, we found the resort to be beautiful and clean, with good (not great) food, and lots of activities for the kids. Above all, the resort was peaceful and relaxing, like you would expect for... More

We have just returned from a 5-night stay at the Vallarta Palace. The hotel is great and and the service was above and beyond the call of duty. Each time you'd pass by an employee of the hotel they would say HOLA with a smile on their face! We had a room that faced the ocean and swimming pools, so... More

My trip to Vallarta Palace in July 2007 was the second time I had stayed at the hotel.

The attentive staff, general cleanliness and the well stocked minibars in the room are really the only nice things I can mention about this hotel. This is my second and final stay at this hotel. If I was invited to come again for free I would not come again The rooms themselves have a nice layout but the walls are... More

We spent 1 week here. From 12/28- 01/04. We have 2 kids ages 14 and 16 a boy and a girl. They loved the fact that there was food and drink at there disposal. You can't beat that with teenagers. All inclusive is the only way to go with kids. We had never done it before and I would only... More
