This is one of the oldest timeshares in Puerto Vallarta. If you want new and flashy this is not your place. However, I have enjoyed this resort for many years. Let me tell you why. We really prefer our home resort in Nuevo Vallarta but there are so many great restaurants, art galleries and entertainment choices to enjoy in Puerto...

I took my wife and kids here for dinner. Our Server Marco offered excellent service and the rest of the staff was very friendly and attentive. We ordered the whole fish grilled snapper which was very tasty and the Fettucine frutti del mar which had a lovely sauce and the pasta and seafood was cooked perfectly. The view is spectacular...

I was on a vacation to save street dogs while in P.V mexico,,this is by far the best hotel I have stayed at in Mexico. I have stayed a some pretty fancy hotels and this being a mid range hotel turned out to be the best so far! I stayed in one of the new rooms on the 8th floor,...

Costa Sur was pleasant enough. They allow smoking everywhere so the pool area and bar stunk of smoke. In 7 days they had 3 weddings which blocked off a large part of the view of the ocean from the common area. The drinks were weak, drowned down with mixer. We stayed in the 1 bedroom suite and it was spacious....

My bill for November 17-December 1 was over $1,000 for food and drinks to my room (room 703) I'm not sure I didn't pay someone else's bill? I was not given a receipt so could not argue the amount. There were several days we ate or drank nothing . We have been going to Costa Sur for over 10 yrs...

The food was really good! But the hours for everything were horrible. They roped off the ocean entrance, and shut down the pools, bar, and restaurant at 10 PM. We ran the bar out of bottled water twice, in a span of four days, and we weren't ordering any more than we could consume. The service was fairly inconsistent. Some...

We have never had such a bad experience in a Mexican resort. Everything shuts down at 10:00 PM including the pools and beach and the security guard will not let you do anything after the place shuts down. You don't get an Internet in your rooms, so you have to go to the lobby to use it and it is...

Costa Sur has been in existence for several decades and has the unique characteristics of being built right off the coastline. Many newer resorts are stepped back from the ocean. Not here, You are just a few steps into the ocean with crystal clear water and a rock barrier that protects swimmers from big waves as well as provides homes...
