Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

My friends and I spend one week from October 19th till 26th at Las Palmas .we wanted to be closer to
down Town Puerto Vallarta.
Too bad there was a remodel going on the place was a mess .
We paid for all inclusive but the first drink I ordered on the bar (scotch and soda no special brand) the bartender charged me $11.
The staff was great,food not so good
Probably would not return ::

Stayed: November 2013, traveled with friends

Just came back from a 7 day stay at Las Palmas by the Sea, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Had a great holiday.

The hotel is rated a 3 star but we would rate it a 4 star for friendly staff, good food, drinks and entertainment.

The beach is good and connects to a long stretch of beach for long, leisurely, sunbathing, walks.

What I liked was the availability to walk on the main street and mingle or choose your restaurants shopping, etc., also you can take the local bus for 7.5 pesos (60 cents US Dollar) and travel downtown to the historical main center of Puerto Vallarta.

This is a small hotel with hard beds and small rooms but with wonderful friendly service....not for someone expecting a 5 star hotel.

If you want a relaxing, reasonable priced holiday in the sun by a pool, it's perfect.

I was surprised by how many visitors were repeat travellers from all over the world...

I will be back.....

Room Tip: I don't plan to stay in my room during a holiday so have no preference,,,

You will not meet a friendlier more helpful staff. Sanitation, Antonio and Edgar are the best. The take such good care of us, even though the propert isn't the newest, the people keep us coming back. The staff works hard to keep the place very clean.

Great small hotel for families. Not many party kids there while we were, so it made for a quiet and relaxing trip. The kids play place staff were excellent! The food was good, staff was friendly and courteous. Would definitely return again.

The hotel is in need of some renovation and maintenance work. First room they put us in had a broken shelf and the second room had very weak air conditioning (couldn't get the room cool enough for complete relief from the summer temperatures). But, the room was clean and the view was great.
The "beach" should be more correctly referred to as "water access" as it was but 10 to 15 feet from the retaining wall and the sand was pebbly and uncomfortable for bare feet. As well, once in the water the sand was even more course and dropped off very quickly (forget about having your youngsters frolicking as water wings or a life jacket would be needed for non-swimmers).
The youth pool was fine, but not nearly big enough that the peak hours you were a risk of catching an elbow or foot in the face from a fellow tourist.
I found the staff extremely helpful and accommodating. Drink service in the restaurants was quick and they did well to ensure my two (very shy) sons did not go without. Thank you for that, but overall we will look elsewhere whenever we go to PV.

Room Tip: Check the air-conditioning strength before accepting the room!

I have stayed in many resorts throughout Puerto Vallarta and Cancun. Las Palmas is a great place to go if you are tired of the bigger fancier places where you are just another Canadian/American family on vacation. The staff are very friendly and the food was great for not being a 5 Star hotel. The Pacific side is touch and go with beaches and waves being less forgiving than the Caribbean, but this beach was clean and the sand was fine. I spent hours in the ocean with my young children and wasn't worried once about rip tides or dangers. Sofia (entertainment staff) made the holiday extra special for us as she was absolutely amazing with my children and involved them in all the events. We were there 2 weeks during easter when 95% of the fellow tourists were native Mexicans.....and I found that quite enjoyable as opposed to being surrounded by drunken and disrespectful north american tourists. Thank you Sofia....and we will be back.

Room Tip: I recommend a room facing the ocean. We were stuck in a back room with no view and the air condition...
