We spend January through April every winter here and have loved it for almost 20 years! The staff are fabulous and have of course become friends over the years. The building is the most beautiful on Los Muertos Beach, the most popular beach in Old Town Vallarta. It has true Mexican charm, not modernistic or sterile, but with modern amenities. The location on the beach is perfect because it is on the end of the street, and it is part of a lovely area called Amapas, which includes Conchas Chinas where all the beautiful old traditional Mexican villas are. The beach is perfect; you go out the door, cross the street, and you're on the beach, with your own palapas and chairs to enjoy. Or if you prefer you can enjoy the beach from your own balcony, which we also do a lot. The sunsets over the ocean are beyond belief. This part of town, Zona Romantica or Old Town, is very secure and safe. Here you can enjoy a taste of the real Mexico in comfort and beautiful style and safety - unlike some of the all-inclusives in Nuevo Vallarta, which are so cut off from the rest of the town and the culture.There are so many truly great restaurants within walking distance that I can't begin to describe them all. La Palapa is our favorite.Taxis are numerous and very safe if you don't want to walk. Art walks during the high season and fun shops everywhere in town, the botanical gardens, outdoor adventures - there are tons of things to do besides the beach if you like. One of my favorite things is the original statue of the caballito del mar, the little boy on the seahorse, which sits at the edge of the ocean right in front of Vallarta Shores. I love this place, and I cry when we leave each year!

Room Tip: Every room opens on the ocean. There are no lesser rooms - only bigger or smaller, according to what...

Staff were friendly and helpful, the room (#6, which we were careful to request as it seemed like the nicest room to us) was really comfortable and we had a lovely experience.

This isn't a 5 star resort, those looking for that will be sorely disappointed. Some of the reviewers have some valid feedback, but for us, this was a little slice of heaven. The beach was never too crowded, and even though there's only 3 straw umbrellas, there was always one when we wanted one and the convenient but very low key location was just perfect for us.

Some tips:
No hairdryers, if you want one, bring your own.

Towels are available at the front desk for the pool or beach, no need to bring your own unless you want a huge blanket-sized one.

There is filtered water in the unit and the fridge, microwave and kitchen were well appointed if you want to cook while you're there.

It's at the very Southern tip of the Malecon, and while it was quiet people-wise, there was a loud beach club that was open late (2am+) blaring music which didn't bother us much but was pretty loud, they also set up in the mornings around 8 when the music often started again. The people at the club were great, don't get me wrong, but that was some loud music. The waves were also as loud as other say, earplugs solved both problems for me.

The bed is very firm but comfortable, the A/C in the bedroom worked great.

There were plenty of places within walking distance to eat and many seem to deliver as well if you don't want to leave.

We spent a good amount of time on the beautiful patio, sipping drinks and just enjoying the beautiful view and we're already sure we'd go back, but I'd love to try the penthouse next time I'm sure, with some friends, it was gorgeous.

Room Tip: I'd choose a second or higher floor room, the breezes blow through so nicely

Last month I had the pleasure to stay at Vallarta Shores Condo Hotel on Los Muertos Beach. I stayed in Condo #2 a 2 bedroom condo and was pleasantly surprised with how charming the condo was!. Sitting on the terrace with the beach in front of me was very relaxing on my well deserved vacation. The condo had everything I needed and when I had a want the very helpful staff Daniel, Favio, David and Angie were always there to help.

The most special feeling was to listen to the surf at night and I slept like a baby! You can leave your "Wave" machine at home because this hotel has a natural wave machine!

I highly reccommend Vallarta Shores!

Room Tip: Condo #2 has the best wave machine!

We had 18 people stay at Vallarta Shores both Penthouse and various other rooms. We all hung in the penthouse yet everyone had plenty of private space. Having 2 chefs keeps us fed all week and the food was excellent. Don't forget to request a barbeque. You cannot beat the location right on the beach next to my favorite spot Lido Beach Bar.

Room Tip: Get both penthouses if you can your group will love yo for it.

Margaret & I had an unforgetable time (again in PV) thanks to the staff and great accmmodations in Suite #3 at Vallarta Shores.From our deluxe 1 bedroom suite with balcony overlooking the famous sunsets & the beach ,we loved being serenaded to sleep .Walking distance to any part of colonial PV was an added plus. This was our third time and we can't wait to return.

Room Tip: We suggest Suite # 3
