One thing you need to realize is that this is not your usual American style chain hotel where most room are of a certain minimum quality. The rooms in this hotel are divided in the following categories, by most desirable order: beach facing suite, corner beach facing room, front beach facing room, pool facing room and street facing room. The difference in quality/beauty between the top and the bottom offerings is quite acute. If you pick any of the beach facing room you are assured a fantastic view. The non-beach facing rooms are ...well, not very good. Personally we stayed at the beach facing suite and the corner beach facing room and we loved it ( see photos ) Said that we also never bought lodging at this hotel without seeing the room first.
The other thing is that the food at the hotel is somewhat ok, but given this is Puerto Vallarta it does not stand a chance compared to the various restaurants/taco stands/etc. in the area. So save your money and walk 5 minutes in any direction from the hotel for a great meal for the same or less price of the all inclusive.
We will definitely stay here again.
