My wife and I stayed at Hilton PV towards the end of an extended trip to Vallarta. We have stayed at a large number of hotels in the area, and Hilton was certainly towards the top. Our room was fantastic, which was an upgraded from what we booked (Due to being a Hilton Diamond member). Service around the main pool was on the slow side, which was alarming due to the few number of people there. I would worry about the delivery speed when the hotel is at capacity. The rooftop pool is a much needed break from all of the kids down at the main pool area. We found it very odd that there was not a hot tub on the entire property, expect the private ones on the balconies. My wife had been looking forward to enjoying the Spa, but found the prices to be very off-putting (especially by Mexico standards). The prices were double what we would expect at a Hilton spa in the USA.
As far as the food goes, I would say it was good. Not great, but above average. The deal breaker with the restaurants is the lack of any decent wine. I'm not expecting amazing wine, but something drinkable would be nice. My wife and I would have gladly paid a premium/surcharge on something other than the house wine, especially at the French restaurant.
We found the majority of the staff to be helpful and attentive, special thanks go to the reception staff. Often times at larger resorts in PV, checking in can be a painful chore. The Hilton was efficient, attentive, and made us feel like important guests.
All in all, I'm not sure we would stay again. The rates are very similar to other high end hotels in the area that are more polished. The lack of a hot tub, respectable wine, property-wide wifi, and expensive spa would like drive us to a competitor.
