“We Didn't Want to Leave”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

We spent four glorious nights at Playa Fiesta just before Christmas 2012. Absolute paradise. My husband and I went without our toddler but once we arrived, we realized how perfect the resort is for not only an adult get-away, but also a family vacation. With numerous pools and access to a gorgeous beach, we spent most of our time in the water. The staff at Playa Fiesta went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of, and the owners made us feel right at home. Good food, plenty of drinks, a great group of friends, and memories that will last a lifetime. We are already planning our next trip. Thanks for everything!

Room Tip: Our room opened to the ocean and we LOVED it. The surf got a bit loud at night, but we were able to...

Deciding where to have a destination wedding is a bit nerve-wracking. After

reading all the excellent reviews, my fiance and I agreed to have to have our

wedding there. Best decision ever! (We were married there in Feb 2013.) Even

with all the praise we read about online because it can't be that perfect, can

it? Yes, it can. From the planning stages, we were most impressed with

Lindsay's responsiveness (with replies to our email inbox on average of 10

minutes after we sent an email) and attention to detail. We think things were

much simpler and much less stressful at Playa Fiesta than if we had tried to

plan a wedding in our hometown or the town we currently reside. The location of

the Playa Fiesta is great. We were close enough to the city center to take a

bus or taxi and be there in 10-15 minutes, but far enough away that we felt like

we were in a secluded villa.

The reviews have everything right, particularly with respect to Lindsay and the

staff, so we'll try to share a few things not easily found in the other reviews.

We arrived a day earlier than our guests and our first night there was

spectacular. We had the entire place to ourselves and enjoyed a perfect dinner

with what may have been the best sunset we've ever seen. We were surprised by

the beach and accessibility to the beach, which we were afraid might be

completely rocky or smaller than expected based on some reviews. Several of our

guests enjoyed going in the ocean, however the waves are very strong... it is

the Pacific Ocean after all. While we weren't sure what to expect from reviews,

we were also very happy with the restaurant area, which is open air, but covered

and worked perfectly for all of our meals. The wedding was, of course, amazing,

but the most important part is really everything you get for relatively the same

cost as a US wedding. It's simply not comparable. On our final morning there

we were able to see whales about 100 yards off the beach jumping out of the

water (as if we were at Sea World). They put on this show for about 10 - 15

min, just continuing to jump every min or so. It was a phenomenal ending to a

fantastic week.

The most important aspect of all this really isn't understanding how great Playa

Fiesta is, it's understanding how to make a decision to have a destination

wedding at a place you've never been. From our perspective we can say we're

probably like most couples in that we had several reasons not to have a wedding

in Mexico... family pressures not to, the knowledge that some friends may not

make it, the questions that people have when they find out you've never been to

this place, some concerns about whether people will actually go. It's important

to work through those things carefully and calmly, but at the end of the day

have the guts to do what you want to do - and realize this many internet reviews

can't be wrong. We can promise you it's well worth it if you can get yourself

over the obstacles that are sure to come up. You will not regret getting

married at Playa Fiesta!

The most amazing wedding we could've ever dreamed of. We got married 3 months ago and everyone is still talking about it. Lindsay made everything so special and perfect, I couldn't complain if I tried. The whole experience was more than we expected and left us feeling so satisfied that we made the right choice for our wedding destination. From the rooms, to the food, to the staff and of course the drinks, being born and raised in LA we were truely impressed. I encourage any engaged couple who is thinking about having their wedding here to go for it. Magical in every way. Thank you Playa Fiesta!!!

I was fortunate enough to attend a destination wedding here and it was truly special. The owners and staff did everything to make the bride and guests have a fabulous time. Lindsay, the wedding planner, paid attention to every last detail and was one of the most gracious people you could ever work with when planning a wedding. The wedding itself was beautiful and special, with many memorable moments... my favorite was the surprise fireworks. I would recommend Playa Fiesta with the highest regard to any bride looking for a special and memorable destination wedding for herself and her guests.

Attended a destination wedding at the Playa Fiesta Hotel in Puerto Vallarta. Had a fabulous time. The rooms were great, large and super clean! The views were spectacular. The service was wonderful, the food was delicious and we were so impressed with the attention to detail at the wedding event. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone considering a destination wedding.

Room Tip: Any room facing the ocean is fabulous!

We had wonderful time in early March. We were worried how it will be if someone will have wedding in the same time, we did not want noise, and we dreamed to relax.
We got what we wanted and even more. Owners and staff are professional and very friendly, food was beyond compare. When we went to Malecon we were very happy that we are not living in those crowded places. Design, cleanliness, ocean view, everything was fantastic! Thanks to Lindsay, Adam and Nacho, who made our days.
This hotel just perfect for romantic couples, but, probably is not such good for people with kids.
We would like to come back one day.

The hotel was fabulous!! We knew before going that it was rated #1 on trip advisor in Puerto Vallarta, but I guess you don't actually believe it until you experience it yourself. The hotel was absolutely fabulous!! Every detail was taken care of, before you could even think of needing it. We were a guest of the hotel for a destination wedding, and it was an amazing wedding locale and a fantastic 6 days as a guest. Every thing was perfect!! If I could give one criticism . . . I wish the beach was a little better. However, this would be SEARCHING for something to complain about. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone considering it for a destination wedding, both as a bride/groom or as a guest. It has definitely earned it's #1 rating.
