My husband and I stayed in PV April 16th to April 26th. We trully enjoyed our stay. It was a five minute trip from the airport. We took a federal taxi (white) and it cost $20.00usd. We did not upgrade to club and never knew the difference. There is a MEGA store very close, 10min walk. This store has anything you could ever need and more including all forms of alcohol.
The beach was beautiful, however, very rocky and not the best for swimming. The one thing that was a little uncomfortable for me was when laying on the beach 20 ft from me was a rope on the other side of rope were several peddlers. We didnt come to this resort to be bothered. I know they have to make a living, but we enjoy the beach more than any aspect of our vacations. Sorry did not enjoy the beach as much as most resorts.
The service was very good in restraunts. My favorite Oceana chicken azteca. Room service was fair. We ate breakfast at the buffet every morning and looked forward to a warm goodmorning from Yohanna.We hope that management knows what a great asset Yohanna is to this resort. No matter what she always goes the extra mile.
Our room was cleaned regularly, and fridge stocked daily. It was my husbands birthday and they went all out to give him a special surprise at no additional charge. We did not go to any of the entertainment , however, the entertainment staff during the day were very friendly and fun. One day my husband set up for me to go out on the ocean on a hobbi cat with Alex. What a blast and such a great view of PV.
All and all a wonderful vacation. However probably will not return due to the peddlers standing in front of our view of the waves begging us to buy. If this isnt important to you then I would highly recommend this resort. Last but not least we went for two seperate spa treatments and it was pure heaven.
