I am amazed at how poorly written some of these reviews are and how little information they provide for travelers. I just returned home from Starbay yesterday and there is one very important detail missing from all of these reviews: this hotel is directly next door to an event venue. During our 6 nights there were 3 evening events, one... More

We just returned from a one week stay (Feb. 2-9) at Starbay. We enjoyed our stay and thought the staff was very courteous, friendly, and helpful (especially Eva at the front desk and housekeepers Claudia and Sandra). The room was comfortable and we liked that the bedroom was separate from the living room/kitchen area. We ate at the Starbay restaurant... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel after having traveled to Puerto Vallarta. The hotel at first glance seem nice, until you get close up and notice she is long for a pick me up paint job and overall maintenance session. Our check in was unusual in that for only 2 persons checking in..it took well over an hour.... More

We have stayed here twice and love this resort. The staff are friendly, helpful, the little kitchen is adequate. However, during our last stay the resort was host to a group of senior high school students who were screaming, drinking and partying all day into the wee hours, The staff were unable to deal with this issue. Several of us... More

This is a small, supposedly "intimate" little resort -- location makes it a bit hard to find; apparently it is known by more than one name. The really bad thing about this is the timeshare people -- they are relentless! We also noted one of the timeshare people from another resort we had stayed in a previous year that had... More

Perfect spot for me and my spouse to unwind in the sun by the ocean. Beautiful facility, just the right size, not an anonymous highrise, but right on the beach with ocean views. Away from the crowds and stress in PV, but close to the lovely Bucerias, Punta de Mita, and Sayulita. Used the onsite restaurant or our kitchenette when... More

Because of messed up flights, we left for vacation early (to get better flights), and so we booked this hotel for 3 days prior to our usual trip to PV. We stayed from 11/3-11/6/2009, and booked a two bedroom/two bath suite for two of us. We had two other friends who WOULD POSSIBLY join us, so did not want to... More

Upon arrival at the hotel we were pleasantly surprised, the pictures were very accurate. Lobby very expansive and tastefully decorated with an awesome view of the courtyard, pool and the Pacific. Check-in was very smooth and we were taken to room 205, a 1 bedroom unit. Again, the room looked exactly like the pictures; kitchen area with four-eye stove, full... More

Stayed 12 nights with boyfriend. Beds were extremely hard, room was dated and had ants. We did buy fresh shrimp at Wal-Mart or Mega, boiled them up and sat on the balcony and ate them. (No cocktail sauce or horseradish anywhere) Restaurant staff indifferent, Aldo at front desk was very accomodating. Too far out to be somewhere quickly, felt isolated.... More
