We booked this hotel as part of a last-minute deal. The hotel is located in Nuevo Vallarta (about a $15 USD cab ride away from Puerto Vallarta and the airport). The hotel is very nice, all inclusive, with wonderful beach access and activities throughout the day. The food on the buffet and in the restaurants was better than average. Our room was clean, spacious, and everything we needed. The wine list was abysmal (they had one red, one white, and one sparkling - none of them tasted good to this wine lover).
Our chief complaint would have to be the "vultures" selling time shares and excursions. They are positioned right outside the elevators so you are stopped by them almost every time you go to and from your room. Despite the fact we weren't interested (we pre-purchased all of our excursions), they felt inclined to stop us several times a day. They were way to eager to show us a 90-minute presentation and simply couldn't understand why we couldn't commit the time (we're on vacation to relax... not to be subjected to an extended sales pitch). That being said, we learned sales pictures are the status quo in PV - we noticed these high pressure tactics in most public places (the airport, walking on the boardwalk, shopping in stores, etc).
