“Amazing 1st Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

The 5 of us stayed May 4 - 9. This was our 1st trip to Mexico. We loved every minute of it. Our stay at Vamar Vallarta was excellent. The staff was amazing. Everyone we came in contact with was so nice and helpful. Cecilia made sure our 3 bedroom suite and my birthday celebration was perfect. Miriam recommended the Puerto Vallarta City Tour and it was amazing! It had so many things on our list we wanted to do and it was so inexpensive. Manuel helped us everyday get taxis thank you again to all of the staff you were all terrific! The food was great and they had so many options so there was something for everyone. The pools were great. The drinks were great. I can't say enough wonderful things about this place and the staff. I would stay here again and recommend it to others. Thanks again Vamar Vallarta!

This was my first trip to Mexico, we were a group of 5, we stayed at Varmarta Villarta, we had a large 3 bedroom 3 bathroom, the room was huge and very clean, yea there was a stove and no pans, but didn't want to cook anyway,,the food there was good for me, the buffet was good and the snack bar was vey good, but the sit down resturant was the best, the staff was amazing to say the least, went out of thier way to be sure we were taken care of, the concigre Mariam set us up on the city tour, which was great, I would recommend that, and Ciceila was very helpful planning a birthday dinner at the resturant, Mario, Carlos Pedro, our wait staff were great, they were fun and made sure we had all we needed, Tommy our cook was from our home state, and that was cool, all in all it was an amazing vacation and the staff made it better, I would reccomend the Villarta to anyone wanting to go, for a inexpensive stay where they make you fell like a queen,,, miss it already.

Great location! This was our 12 year wedding anniversary trip and they put us in a room with to very small beds. So for the first 2 nights we slept apart. I finally said something the 3rd day and they moved us to a room with a king bed. The rooms were very clean and large. The beds are very old and hard. Like sleeping on a camping mat. The point of having the "kitchen" does not make any sense to me. There is a stove top and a sink. No fridge,oven, microwave, pans, or dishes. Can't use the kitchen for much. THe AC works really well! The only area that was open while we were there was the lobby, buffet, and italian. The beach area, snack bar, and regualr bar was closed for remodel. That was very disappointing! The pool was nice and clean every day. The Pool and Lobby bar was awesome! The sales pressure from the people trying to push time share stuff SUCKED - but that comes with the territory(Mexico). We went Zip lining and it was fun and only $30 pp but it is alot of jungle hiking so do not go if you are not in good shape!
The buffet was the only food that was offered and I give it a 5 out of 10. THe drinks were good but not much variety. Only 2 vodkas, 2 beers, coke soda and a couple juices for mixers. We got this as a groupon deal for $582 for 5 nights for 2 people and that is the max I would ever pay for this deal.

Room Tip: The bottom floor rooms face the pool and have direct access to the pool. No stairs or elevator use...

Just returned from Puerto Vallarta and have great respect for the staff at Vamar. We were expecting a different level of amenities and this hotel did not work for us. It is a very local -type place and we were the only Americans there. However, OCTAVIO and CAROLINA went above and beyond. Allowed full refund from Orbitz and even helped me find a new hotel. Octatvio made several calls for me in Spanish and even recommended a hotel of us to stay. It was Easter weekend and most places were full. But we found a great one thanks to him.

We had a great view of the marina and enjoyed the area. The room was partially updated. Not sure about the older kitchen attached. No fridge, no utensils.

My wife and I stayed at the Vamar for two weeks in January 2013. This was our third stay at this hotel. As always, we were very pleased with the hotel facilities, wonderful staff and food.

The Superior rooms are very big, clean and well appointed. They come with a kitchen and a big balcony that faces the pool and Marina, with the the mountains in the background. A wonderful sight to wake up to every morning!

The staff was more than willing to go out of their way to accommodate us. We enjoyed the meals served at the Buffet. There was always a varied menu. We personally, enjoyed having the choice to eat authentic Mexican food. The breakfast is outstanding.

The Vamar is in a great location with access to all the Marina restaurants and shops. The city bus stops right in front of the hotel with allows cheap, easy access to the downtown area including the Malecon. Walmart is a short bus ride away.

You can relax at the hotel pool, have a drink and watch the boats go by in the Marina or wander over to the ocean side of the complex where there are other pools and the ocean view. There is snack food available and a poolside bar.

Thank you to the awesome Varmar staff for another wonderful stay. We will be back!

Room Tip: Make sure you spend a little more money and get a superior room.The east side of the hotel on floors...

Location great- but the whole hotel is full of spring break college students. It was so rowdy that we asked to move from the marina side to the beach side.. The staff took care of us- matthew, carlos, Manuel, Samuel and Ramon etc.. Beach side room ok- clean and efficient 3 star ish amenities... Food at the Italian reservation only restaurant on site was fairly consistent as was breakfast in the buffet- the rest of the food mediocre ...avoid times when spring break is happening....
