“What an amazing trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

I was recently in Puerto Vallarta for a wedding. The event was held at the Playa Fiesta resort and the entire party stayed in the hotel. The amenities were beautiful, the location was great and the staff were helpful, courteous and friendly. I enjoyed myself very much and would recommend Playa Fiesta to anyone!

WOW. Being at Playa Fiesta is like being in a good friend's gorgeous villa, with a staff that is as friendly and attentive as they are professional. The rooms are gorgeous, with an attention to detail that shows a passion for leisure. The food is fresh and delicious. The pools...the ocean...the views from every angle on the property are majestic. This place invites those "moments" you will remember forever. How can a place can feel totally relaxing and at the same time totally invigorating? I felt so at ease from the moment of arrival, every need was met. Both Lindsey and Adam are consummate hosts. Frankly, the only part I didn't like was leaving... ;) I will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Corner suites are amazing !

Playa Fiesta is an ideal spot for a group destination event or party. We just hosted a large group there for a 5-day event and it was perfect in every way. The location itself is inviting and easy, the rooms are gorgeous and comfortable (generous), and the ability to do an inclusive package means my guests didn't have to worry about a single thing the entire time. Playa Fiesta feels more like a good friend's mansion than a institutional hotel, and the owners and staff treat you like family from the moment you arrive. If you want to create memories that last a lifetime and a no-brainer trip for your guests, this is the place. All of our guests cannot stop raving about the quality of the food, drinks, staff and facilities. The location is unique, and you don't feel like you are "on the strip" of hotels nor bombarded by vendors while trying to relax - even on the beach. Highly recommended for any group event!

I was recently married here and had high hopes of things turning out wonderful, but Lindsay, Adam, Nacho, and the Playa Fiesta Staff far exceeded any expectation that we had, and helped us to create and host a truely perfect wedding weekend beyond our wildest dreams. Our friends and family still can't stop talking about what an incredible vacation they were each given and how amazing the wedding was. We hosted 58 guests, from a Thursday thru Monday, including a young child and 3 infants, and the hotel was so accomodating from the very beginning to any special needs, including cribs, special linens, dietary restrictions, etc. Everyone truly felt like Playa Fiesta was their home away from home by the time we all left.

The wedding planning process with Lindsay and Melissa was stress free and actually very enjoyable. They were both so quick to respond to any questions I had, and went above and beyond to find a way to make any idea we came up with a reality. The festivities began with a welcome dinner and a spectacular fire dance/drumming show. I would highly recommend this, our guests loved the surprise, it was a great way to get people excited and start the celebration, and the performers were so talented! We arranged for our actual wedding ceremony to be in the evening on Saturday, which isn't what the hotel had typically done in the past, but Lindsay & Adam were more than willing to work with us on every aspect of our vision. The evening ceremony was even more beautiful and romantic than we could have imagined. We decorated the whole ceremony area in candles galore and began the processional just after sunset. The guests were blown away by the ambiance that was created and it was such a beautful thing to have the sounds of the waves crashing behind us. I would urge anyone who is planning a wedding at Playa Fiesta to consider having an evening ceremony, not only for the romance of it all, but also for the lack of stress that having a later evening wedding provided. We had all day to prep and rest and there was no rush in getting ready in order to start during the light of day. We were really able to dictate the pace of our day as opposed to being rushed by the setting sun & fading light. The cooler evening temperature and lack of glaring sun really was much more comfortable for all of the guests as well. We did fireworks during the reception, which again, I would recommend, as it was a spectacular show and a great surprise for our guests! All of the guests have raved about the food. There was so much variety to choose from when planning our daily dinner buffets and the quality of food is really some of the best I've had in all of Mexico.

As many other people before me have previously reviewed, the staff at Playa Fiesta is really hands down the best staff you could ever come by. Charlie, Noe & Patricio got to know all of our friends and family and really made them feel at home. They put up with our late night antics ;) and were so genuinely kind and professional. We could not thank them and all of the other staff, enough for their attention to detail and the level of care they gave to each and every guest.

All 28 rooms in this boutique hotel are clean and decorated with simple perfection. We had no problem assigning rooms, and despite some varying levels of views and size, every guest was completely satisfied with the quality of their room. Having a whole hotel, with every room filled with your closest friends and family, only added to the experience and provided a sense of safety and intimacy that we never would have had at some large hotel. We had every inch of the hotel all to ourselves and really were free to make the place ours for the weekend. The location of the hotel itself is great as well. We were a 5 minute taxi ride to Old Town, which had great shops and bars and ambiance for our guests that did want to explore a bit, and it was only a 30minute ride from the airport. But truly, our guests were so content at the hotel, most didn't even feel the need to leave! We did arrange a boat trip for about half of the guests on the Friday before the wedding, which actually turned out to be a ton of fun as well.

We hope to go back for our 1 year anniversary to visit all of our new family from Playa Fiesta, and I have a feeling many of our wedding guests will also be planning a return trip with us! It was a once in a lifetime event and I am so grateful we chose Playa Fiesta because it was every inch and more of what I dreamed it to be!

These guys run a top-knotch place. From the service to the food to the rooms to the view, we felt simultaneously completely at home and on vacation! I LOVE this place. Lindsey and Adam are friendly and very professional and go out of their way to create a truly unique experience. The first time I was there it was for a wedding- which went flawlessly from the fireworks to the buffet dinner- the entire 4 day event was amazing. The second time we went back with friends and it was like returning home to a summer house. Charlie, the head bartender, even remembered me by name if you can believe it! I felt very safe, the place was immaculate, the food was great and the location stunning. I can't say enough about how much I enjoy going to Playa Fiesta and my family is planning their next vacation here as a result of my recent ravings. Do yourself a favor and book your next vacation here.

Room Tip: all the rooms are great. many have balconies and you can share a suite with a family too.

A group of friends rented out the Playa Fiesta for a family and friends 5-day adventure. The hotel was amazing, the staff was wonderful and the food was good. I cannot say again how great the staff was there. We've been a lot of hotels and frankly this was hands down the best service. Most of the staff knew our names by the 2nd day and treated us like family.

The American owners of the hotel have created a wonderful oasis. We felt at home in all regards.

We will definitely return again with family and friends.

Room Tip: pick a room with an ocean view. 2nd floor or higher (only 4 floors in this lovely boutique hotel). Y...

My daughter wanted to have a destination wedding where both sides of the wedding party could come together and enjoy a real vacation. Initially, we were concerned about the location, as you hear in the news Mexico is not safe and traveling can be sometimes difficult. However, I can proudly and openly boast that Playa Fiesta was beyond any and all expectations we had! Not only did my daughter experience a beautiful wedding, but our friends and family who traveled from near and far had an incredible vacation.

First and foremost, the quality of service is top notch and the best we've ever experienced. Lindsay and her staff go above and beyond to ensure each and every guest is happy and comfortable. Playa Fiesta offers a personal touch that no other hotel has ever compared to. The rooms are absolutely gorgeous, clean and spacious. Not to mention the views are breathtaking.

Secondly, there was never a moment we didn't feel safe and secure. Even getting transportation to and from the airport was convenient and worry-free.

From a parents perspective, the wedding was completely stress-free and enjoyable. In fact, our friends and family still talk about it! We would highly recommend Playa Fiesta to any and all parents. My wife and I have traveled nationally and internationally for years, and without hesitation we can both say Playa Fiesta was one of the best experiences we've had.
