“We enjoyed our stay here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

We stayed from 8/31-9/4. We had an AI package and had a great time. We would rate them 3.5/5 because they messed up our restaurant reservations, but we bumped them 4/5 because of few exceptional staff members.

Pros-
1. Very clean (way better than many US hotels)
2. Staff. I always thought latinos/spanish people are way more warmer and welcoming than say white europeans. The staff at sunset plaza will make sure that you drink too much and eat too much.
** Special mention Sentriano/Centriano who was beyond exceptional in service while serving the pool area.
3. Location - amazing sunset views; close to downtown
4. Food - we tried both italian and mexican. Both were extremely satisfying.

Cons-
1. Small resort (I would 3-4 days is max you can stay here)
2. Lack of any evening entertainment; no shows or dances; very quite
3. The bartender in the lobby bar was acting weird when we asked for a drink
4. They messed up our dinner reservation for the japanese restaurant and because of that we could not eat there. We were stuck with 2 restaurants - mexican (almost every day) and italian (dinner). We are from san francisco so that was limiting and a disappointment for us.

Room Tip: I believe all rooms have good sunset/sunrise view

The hotel is right on the water, has so many pools, activities for the kids, it rained the whole week and we were not bored for a minute, the restaurants are great, beautiful view, when it did stop raining workers were always drying everything up so you can go right out, Manager met us at the door when we arrived, would never go anyplace else, thank you to all at the Sunset Plaza for helpinig us celebrate a wonderful 30 year anniversary:) Cannot wait to go back!

Room Tip: We had a one bedroom suite, all rooms overlook the beach, so much room for two.

Our stay at the Sunset Plaza Beach Resort & Spa was wonderful! It was just what we needed. From the time we arrived until we left, everyone there made our stay perfect. Our room was spotless & the view was amazing. The food was wonderful, all made to order, no buffets. The french toast for breakfast.....wow! All the staff are very friendly and helpful and always busy making the grounds clean & beautiful. If you want a resort to relax and be pampered, this one is for you. Not a resort with loud music and lots of activities. They do have a children's club if you do bring the kids. I would definitely recommend this resort for and excellent vacation.

Room Tip: Try to stay on floors 4 or above.

Amazing / Fabulous / Friendly... great view... what a terrific place to stay... we had the 1-bedroom suite... it was gorgeous and huge... everyone gets their own Private Butler with a suite... super nice, makes reservations on and off property... makes sure you have a car waiting when needed... everything you want he is there to help... this is a smaller, more "boutique" resort, not some mega-resort you get lost in...

The food is wonderful and a nice variety... something for everyone... we did the all-inclusive and I recommend that package... the Japanese Restaurant was not that great, but all the other options available more than made up for that one... Luciano's is amazing... try the Spanish Coffee for sure... an amazing presentation!!!

The staff was very friendly and courteous but not in the way... the resort manager, Javier Versara was friendly and helpful...

FABULOUS!!! They totally made the trip an experience to remember... we will definitely be back!!!!!!

Room Tip: Spring for the 1- or 2-bedroom suite and get the all-inclusive...

We had the one bedroom suit during our stay back in April. The service is really good. All ocean view rooms. One of the best vacation stay thus far. The rooms are so clean with twice a day maid service. The jacuzzi in the bathroom is amazingly clean and comfortable. The balcony is huge with two long beach chairs and table/chAirs. Every morning I was able to lay on the beach chair and enjoy the sunrise and the cool breeze. The one bedroom suit comes with two bathrooms, two beds, one fully furnished kitchen. It can fit 4 people with room to spare. We also got to choose the fragrance of the room. Every night when we return, the room is always so clean and smells wonderful and refreshing. We totally enjoy our stay at the resort. The resort has breathtaking sunset view. The best thing is the restaurant by the pool allows us to enjoy the view every night. We also really like the ping pong table by the pool. Friday night, the resort has special program with live show. It is a must see.
The resort is located outside the downtown area. There are several supermarkets are within 10mins walking distance. The taxi is also cheap and price is negotiable. We highly recommend this place. You will love it.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for posting your nice review. We are so glad that you enjoyed all the benefits that Sunset Plaza Hotel guests have.
I will extend your congratulations to our staff, I am sure they will be satisfied to know your kind consideration for a job well done.
Our rooms were designed to appreciate a beautiful view of the Bay from the comfort of your balcony. It is amazing to look the sunrise and sunset from it. Sunset Plaza Beach Resort & Spa Located right on the beach at the center of the hotel zone, just a few minutes´ walk from the rich culture and traditional architecture of downtown and it is only 2.5 miles from the international airport and steps from the most important malls and beautiful Marina Vallarta. Sunset Plaza Beach Resort & Spa is very close to everything Puerto Vallarta has to offer: dining, nightlife, shopping, golf and culture – yet far enough to ensure a relaxing and tranquil retreat.
Please receive our appreciation for sharing your feelings with us, and look forward to your next visit.
Sincerely,
Leaslie Gómez

Went to PV for bariatry surgery--the hospital put us up for three days--we stayed a further 10--first class accommadation, we did not go all inclusive, they have no buffet, just a restaurant where food is cooked to or -----excellent staff

We intend to return--off season rates-late summer are very attractive--weather in July was great, some late evening rains---fantastic lightning displays

Room Tip: All rooms ocean front---no bad rooms that we could see

This was an incredible vacation. The food was outstanding - didn't have one bad meal. It is all a la carte - no buffet. Service was excellent - especially Enzo and Humbierto. It was incredibly quiet - no bullhorn led activities like at other resorts - just ambient music. It was exceptionally clean and very close to the Boardwalk downtown - $.50 for the bus each way. We have a 2 year old and the kids club was great. This is good for couples too - there is an amazing adults only pool and very nice hot tubs. We would recommend this resort to anyone!
