I spent the summer in the neighboring state of Michoacan and traveled by car to PV with extended family. We had the all-inclusive for three nights and it was well worth it. it avgd out to about $100US (for myself) for the entire time and three meals a day, open bar.
the view was to die for! with a spacious balcony right next to the beach.
the room itself included a kitchen with dining area, big bathroom, and two queen beds in the bedroom, all the essentials.
the location of the hotel is perfect! right on the beach, and a nice walk to the malecon which offers a wonderful nightlife. we ate at the hotel so i cant say much about the restaurants in the area.
the staff at the san marino is very friendly. great "entertainers" by the pool area. the hotel actually has 100pesos ($10US) cover which includes a drink, for specific nightclubs every day (you can as at the front desk) and they provide transportation. the hotel has several activities for free, just sign up. they took us kayaking on the ocean one morning.
we also went on the famous "banana", but that was not through the hotel. there is a museum that we visited in an attempt to avoid the heat in the AC, right at the beginning of the malecon. all in all, puerto vallarta is a wonderful place to vacation at and with places like the san marino, its very affordable for the average joe. not luxurious, but very spacious and provides all the necessary on a wonderful location. with an open mind, you might just have the vacation of a lifetime!
will def. go back with my bf and explore the area more.
