My family and I just returned from a week at the resort. Other than Christmas Eve and Christmas, the place was relatively empty. Having stayed at the dreams resorts in Nuevo Vallarta and puerto Vallarta I have to admit that I prefer the the puerto Vallarta location. Whereas the puerto Vallarta resort was large and offered an abundance of activities, this resort was limited due to the condominium presence. Because 2/3 of the resort population is made up of condo owners, the resort limits the noise to please the condo owners. This means no loud speakers and all the evening shows are indoors in unattractive locations. That being said, the food was pretty good. I rarely ate at the buffet (only once), and instead frequented the restaurants. The resort has 3 speciality restaurants: Mexican, Italian, and sea food. Oceana, the seafood restaurant, is open for breakfast everyday offering delicious breakfast options. The service at the restaurants could be improved - long waits and often we weren't seated until they could "locate more menus" but hey, you're on vacation so I imagine that's not a huge concern. My favorite elements of the resort were the sky bar (open at night, an outdoor rooftop bar with plush seating), ocean front bar (had swing seats in addition to bar stools), and the free room service (comes in handy after late nights at the sky bar). The staff is quite attentive and friendly. This is a good place for families as well as large groups. My family of four traveled with another family and we never had trouble asking for tables for 7. My only complaint was that the room had poor lighting. Overall, the resort was clean, safe, tasty, and fun.
