My wife and I stayed at the Hilton for our honeymoon for six nights during mid September. We are not needy people at all and do not complain much about anything. We arrived on a Monday and would of loved a drink right away but the lobby bar was closed, so we settled for the 2 beers we had in the mini-fridge. The couple of water bottles in the fridge didn't last long and I wish they had some more readily available for guests, especially since the lobby bar was closed during the day for half of our trip.
What we did love about staying here. - The room was spacious enough, loved the shower. - Pool service was good, even better after a small tip to the servers. - The mexican and french restaurants were great. - The pool was lovely and never crowded, since it was offseason. - The rooftop bar was a great place to be, always good service, sushi, so-so. - Enjoyed the coffee bar in the morning before breakfast. - Walking the beach was nice, just wish it would of connected us to more things. - Drinks were okay, never made them as strong as I would like even after asking and tipping, beer was best bet after a while.
Some things not so great - Stay AWAY from the wine. My wife was very disappointed on a couple selections she tried, couldn't finish. Champagne was better bet for her. - Like I said earlier, loved the mexican and french restaurants for dinner, everything else was hit or miss. My wife loved the cold foods available for breakfast and lunch. I unfortunately found myself eating the cold foods later in the weeks as I realized anything hot was a bit scary, or just tasted awful. Tried a burger for lunch and room service, awful. Fogo restaurant was just okay. Like earlier, would of loved some stiffer drinks. Please FILL the mini-fridge, rather than 2 beers, 2 waters, and 2 cokes and get them to be colder or bring already chilled beverages. I couldn't drink a beer at night that had just been replaced earlier in the day, had to wait til the next day.
Book the excursion Rhythms of the Night. Well worth it for the drinks and food. Food was almost better than the hotel. Scenes were wonderful and great way to spend the evening.
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at the Hilton Puerto Vallarta. It was a relaxing honeymoon, we enjoyed the service we received from everybody at the hotel. Will definitely recommend and consider a return. Thanks!
