This is my fourth stay at an all-inclusive resort in Mexico and I have to say the resort was a little less than average. Food: Meh. The buffet we went to for breakfast each morning and that was tolerable with some fresh omelettes and fresh fruit. The restaurants were a little inconsistent with their food quality. Viva Mexico's fajitas were... More

So very disappointed in our stay here. We went there in August (2014) for our honeymoon. When we first arrived it looked beautiful, until we were stuck waiting to check in for an hour because they only had one person behind the desk. Then when we finally got to our room (they upgraded us which was nice) there were ants... More

Extremely disappointed on my 30th birthday trip. There were 3 people staying in our room. 3 robes, 3 slippers but only 2 bath towels. We called front desk to let them know there are 3 of us but only 2 towels and they said they would send someone up. By the time my sis & I finished showering, the towel... More

We came here in June/July as we thought it was a great bargain for a 5 star all inclusive but this is where it stopped. Upon check in, we found the room to be dirty i.e. people had just slept in the room, and quickly asked reception to change our room. The receptionist was very rude and hardly spoke any... More

Con artists that partner with travel agencies to extort more money from you. We paid Prestige Vacations who booked our reservation and did not pay the funds we provided. It was a Rip-off all the way with the hotel playing us to overcharge at the "Rack-Rate" which is twice the normal rate. Our 40th Anniversary turned into a disaster. Don't... More

We were on our way back to Puerto Vallarta from Guadalajara and thought we would try and book 2 nights at Punta de Mita. Our experience several years back was great at Palladium and thought we would return. We called the hotel several hours before our arrival in an attempt to book a reservation. When transferred to someone in Reservations... More

Resort location was wonderful and lush and the layout was perfect to allow for roaming around and exploring the resort. Rooms were clean and contemporary with products kept supplied. Unfortunately when we arrived - party of 7 - my two sons were in a separate block, but this was resolved the next day. Minibar was well stocked and refilled daily.... More
