It was with great anticipation that we traveled to Nuevo Vallarta, MX, to check in at the new Grand Mayan.
Our first hint of “paradise lost” came when we checked in and were directed to the desk where we were pressured to sign up to attend a breakfast/tour sometime during our stay. Knowing that this translates to a timeshare presentation, we declined. The next day we received a call in our room informing us that we must attend the presentation to obtain an ocean view room in the future. We declined.
Next, we discovered that earplugs were needed as we encountered 24/7 construction and maintenance noise from our room on a daily basis ranging from roof work and power washing around the pool area beginning at 1 AM to major building construction beginning a 8 AM. The property is a huge maze of various lodging facilities, many under heavy construction to include a major waterway being reconfigured by earth moving equipment. To hear the ocean one needs to sit next to the ocean.
Our ocean view studio room was new with a nice balcony and two queen beds. Finish work in the room was not good; the wall paint was streaky, there was paint over spray on the TV and dresser. It was evident that the room had not been inspected before receiving occupants.
There are many restaurants and poolside eateries. Prices are high for average food.
