So glad my friend stayed here before so she knew her way around. The staff was pretty friendly especially the servers. Our first room was tiny with no view and we complained that we had booked for a view...we had to stay one night in the small room but they fixed it the next morning. Thought that was a hassle. Otherwise, the new room overlooked the pool, it was warm and beautiful and fun. Lots of room to sit. The beach is very small and the sales pushers (buy a time share) and the local sellers (handmade, just for you, almost free) are a but annoying. THey are all over the city so not being able to be on the beach without getting bugged was sad. Across the street was a GREAT massage for 30. all the cab fares are good, and it was easy to book day excursions. Food was great. JUST SAY NO to the time share people.

Room Tip: Be sure and ask for a room looking over the pool area. Its noisy at night till around 10 but hey, i...

We stayed at Canto Del Sol the 3rd week in September. The weather was hot and humid but the a/c worked fabulous! The room was big and comfortable! The views were GREAT! The beach had some rocks so be sure to wear water shoes and be careful the waves can be a little rough during high tide, but it was an amazing beach! Lots of beach to walk on, and the best Sunsets (and sunrises) Ever!!

The staff was incredibly friendly and took excellent care of us! They were very patient with my attempt to learn spanish! And in five days they taught me a lot!

The food was also excellent, The buffets had wide range of choices and everything was always good. The only food we did not like was the nachos at the snack bar...everything else was fabulous! Went to the speciality restuarant twice, we had the place alone each time but the staff and the food was FABULOUS!!

It was easy to walk downtown and there was great shopping around the hotel! We always felf safe around the hotel and downtown. I highly recommend Puerto Vallarta and the Canto del Sol!

We look forward to going again and staying at this excellent hotel!!

Room Tip: A view of the pool was fabulous! You can upgrade to an oceanfront, but you don't have to!!

We have just returned from our first trip to Puerto Vallarta. Had regular anxiety about a new place especially when we read varying accounts of Canto Del Sol. We had a great stay in this clean, hospitable place. While not large, it had everything we needed and close proximity to old town PV where we walked each morning. Good long walk but safe. Had help finding golf and tours from the staff. There was a distinctive Mexican atmosphere which we found delightful. This is not some isolated resort. We were in Mexico. REAL Mexico, and we can't wait to go back.

Our first visit to the Canto Del Sol and in the summer! Hot and humid but the A/C worked flawlessly. Clean hotel, almost to a fault. Room reminded me of the Super 8 where you turn around and fall onto the bed when you thought you had a few more feet. Hey we had a third floor room with balcony overlooking the pool for cheap. And if you're an early riser, there's good coffee in the lobby at 6 am!
We found the buffet very good even though it was the low season. Bed a little hard but great if you like that. Nightly lobby entertainment at 9 pm for an hour, quality a little better than average. Free wifi excellent. For this time of year, this hotel was definitely acceptable. When traffic improves, I would worry about the single pool, one a-la-carte restaurant, one bar open during the day and tiny oceanfront beach. There is room for two rows of permanent beach huts but at high tide you would get wet from the waves. All depends on what you want in a hotel. They offer vacation package presentations, but if you are going to attend, wait a few days then decide if you would want ties to this location.

Room Tip: Ha ha - We always like to be on a higher floor if a Tsunami hits!!

Me and my husband stayed here for a week. It was a very nice resort. The rooms quality vary a lot we got our first room which the balcony faced a cement wall and the unit was in bad shape dirty etc. we asked for another room and they changed us with no issues. We found the resort had a lot of retired seniors who stayed for weeks at a time. This was fine with us thou since I was pregant and not looking to party.

Just returned from a one week all-inclusive vacation at this resort. Had a wonderful time. The food was really good in the buffet, many different items to choose from and they never started to taste the same !!! We went to the specialty restaurant on two nights and although the service was excellent, we didn't enjoy the meal (buffet was much better !!).

Found the beds to be a little hard, but asked if they could do anything and they brought us up foams for the mattress. They were very good after that.

Our maid was very good. Cleaned the room very quickly every day!

I would definitely return to this property !!! GRACIAS.

I'm sitting overlooking the ocean here as I write this. This is my second time here and both times it has not disappointed.
The food here is excellent, they usually have something for everybody's taste and if the buffet fails to deliver you can easily grab something from the little snack bar!
The rooms here are modern, but not so modern that they take away the homely feel of the hotel.I always manage to get a good night's sleep here.
The staff here are nothing short of outstanding.
Jorge (George) has already had several mentions and rightly so because he deserves it, he always looks after us and he's become a great friend.
The activities staff are amazing too, particularly Saul! Or...Salou, as my 7 year old nephew named him (he couldn't pronounce Saul). Saul always sits down to have a chat with me, my Mum and Uncle, usually every day and again, he's become a friend.
Josh is also lovely, quiet at first but very friendly once you get to know him.
However, there is one member of staff that let stem down, and that is Jill, the activities manager. He refuses to do the shows in English aswell as Spanish because "99% of the people here are Mexican." I found that disgraceful and I wasn't entertained at all. He comes across very arrogant and proud and is not very pleasant at all. He doesn't treat his staff right from what I've seen and is a very unfair man. He ruins the shows. I do not know why he is the manager and I hope these comments will be taken into consideration when trying to improve the hotel.

However we do not let that run our holiday, and I have loved every minute of it.
