My husband and I were married here around 1 year ago and dream about returning everyday. If you are looking for a destination wedding..this is your place! No second thoughts needed. It exceeded our expectations!
I. Planning- I am a super planner and never imagined getting married somewhere before visiting and meeting the coordinators, etc. From day one, Lindsey and the team at Playa Fiesta made planning a breeze. They kept in constant contact and had a monthly checklist that was very organized. The dream team to work with for wedding planning. The booking process for guests went very well and we were informed after each reservation was made. When choosing from the variety of options there was something to fit the budget of any bride from very simple to very elegant. We went very simple and it was extremely affordable yet very classy. You can go as overboard as you want and with helping with so many weddings they offer excellent opinions and input. We had around 80 guests so booked the entire hotel and our other guests stayed down the road at Costa Sur. They were great to work with as well and were able to walk or take a cheap cab back and forth.
II. The Hotel and Staff
As you have probably seen in pictures, this place is gorgeous! Pictures do not do it justice. This place is not huge but it is very well cared for along with extremely safe. From the patio furniture to the bathrooms to the tables in the dining room everything is beautiful and high quality. Upon arrival we got to look through each room and assign guests accordingly. There is not a bad room in the hotel and they are all very unique. Each room has 1-3 bedrooms and decorated beautifully. Our guests were all impressed. The bridal suite was amazing and had a blast getting ready there with my best friends. The impressive staff just add to the value of the beautiful hotel. Every person that we encountered was amazing. Each member of their team make you feel like royalty. You become very close with them all and hate to say goodbye.
III. Food & Drink
Again, top of the line amazing food and drinks. Breakfast is provided and was delicious. It is set up like a buffet but each food item was fresh and authentic. A variety of juice, fruit, and pastries was also available. Many guests got out of bed just to have breakfast! When planning our wedding, we left lunch open for our guests in case they wanted to travel in to town. The hotel offered a great lunch menu for guests to order from as well and then would charge to their room. Some of the must have food items are their chips and guacamole, taco platter, and salads. You can truly eat anything here and not get sick! We provided a buffet style dinner for our guests 3 out of 4 nights. We did a welcome dinner, rehearsal dinner, and then the wedding reception dinner. Each dinner was delicious. Our guests were overly impressed with the food. We did the mini desserts for our wedding cake and a late night chip and salsa bar. All were well received.
The bartenders are hands down the best. They made a variety of delicious drinks and were always smiling and fun. We had quite the wild crew and they had fun with us. We spent most of our time pool side with a cold beer or frozen drink. They had a great wine selection as well.
IV. Photography, Flowers, Extras
The photographers recommended by Playa Fiesta are all awesome. I contacted each of them and they were great to work with. They know the location and where to take the best shots, etc. We ended up bringing our own photographer because he also did video graphy and had done alot of my friends weddings. There is a fee to bring in your own photography. The florist that works with Playa Fiesta is also great! I sent a few pictures and got a beautiful all white bridal bouqet. They deliver everything to Playa Fiesta and the wedding team takes care of everything. The DJ was awesome...he kept the dance floor lively all night. We loved working with him. You definitely want to rent the bridge that goes across the pool..it makes a great dance floor on the reception night. We did not do the photo booth or the fireworks.
A majority of our guests never left Playa Fiesta! They enjoyed relaxing by the pool and enjoying the delicious food and drink. When guests wanted to leave the hotel, there was a public bus that stopped right across from the hotel and cost <$0.25/person. It is not clean but a great way to experience the local way of life. You could also catch a cab to town and be there in 10 minutes. Puerto Vallarta is a beautiful and safe city. There were many great restaurants and things to do along the beach.
So bottom line...you must stay here! It is one of the most amazing places I have ever visited! We cannot wait to return soon:)
