Met our expectations. The staff were all really friendly and the service was great. The place is clean. The food was ok. For us vegetarians in the family, the selection in the buffet was limited and repetitive but non-vegitarians family members thought it was ok. On a la carte dinner nights, the food was served cold. Great salsa though. We made use of the local bus (that happens to stop right out front) to take us into town. It was quiet for the first couple days and we enjoyed the pool side room and patio that we had. Then the hotel filled up and it was very loud with people and over cranked music. The beach side pool was great. Be careful not to step on the clusters of spiny sea urchins on the man made reef in the water! This is very painful and it is almost impossible to remove all the needles that bury themselves under the skin!
In general it is a nice hotel and a good place to be based out of but I would definitely recommend getting out of the hotel and spending your time in PV going into town and exploring the south end where there are fabulous sites, restaurants, and attractions. As mentioned the local bus is super easy to manage (convenient and one comes by every couple minutes) but the taxi service once you are away from the airport is also very reasonable.
