We stayed for a week at the Casa Magna Marriott Hotel in Puerto Vallarta, my husband and I and our two sons age 21. The rooms were beautiful, the staff without exception friendly and helpful, and we met other guests there at the same time as we were who enhanced our stay and made it even more enjoyable. At first I thought the vendors on the beach would be a detraction, but they were respectful if you were not interested, and if you are interested they have quality items at good prices. Everyone had a friendly spirit. We took a couple of great side trips, one of them learning to surf with VTA Surf n' Dive school (excellent), and a trip to the Marietas Islands where we saw a ton of whales and birds such as the blue footed booby. All in all a trip with great memories. We will definately book with Marriott again.
