This is an exceptional property which lives up to its reputation as the top resort in the Puerto Vallarta area. From the pleasant and customer friendly staff, to the large and well appointed suites, the Residences represent a great and relaxing vacation experience. From the seamless check-in in the Brunello wine bar with a glass of something cold, to the... More

I will start by saying that I don't love Puerto Vallarta. I don't understand why people would chose to go here instead of beach destinations in the Caribbean with softer sand, more local activities, and clearer water. But for those who won't know any better and chose to visit PV, this hotel is a good choice (please excuse my snarky... More

Visited this hotel with my boyfriend right after Easter/Spring Break. There was hardly anyone else staying there since it was the beginning of the "slow season". Between this resort and their sister resort, the Marival Resort, guests have access to everything one could want. We really enjoyed visiting the VIP beach club. The bell boys were super friendly and spoke... More

I spent one week at this beautiful resort. It was amazing. 4 great restaurants and awesome service. My group noticed that the staff was always warm and friendly and they never seemed to stop working. We had a huge suite that felt like a small apartment. I could have lived there. Beautiful sunset views. Our all inclusive status gave us... More

We stayed 10 days in March and rented a demi pool side room. The room was fantastic, even though we did not spend much time in the room. The resort is away from the beach but you can easily walk or catch a shuttle which runs consistently all day. The staff is the best for a group of people who... More

I go there because I feel safe and secure. Food is excellent. Close to beach. Staff are wonderful. Service a tad slow, but who is in a hurry. Beautiful. Favourite place to eat is Insu. Many activities to do and places to see. Concierge's are really helpful .
