upon checking in do not, i repeat do not, accept the welcome drink. this is from the time share desk and once you have completed check in they draw you over to there desk and state it will take 2 minutes and they will give you a private tour of the resort. it's all a ploy, they want you to sign up for their time share speech. it was so frustrating, what we went through to just get to the resort and then all we wanted to do was change into our swimming suits and go to the beach! although the welcome drink is good, it's not worth the 30 min of the start of your vacation that you won't get back!
The view is amazing, the resort has a lot of amazing qualities and positives. however, the lack of the good food doesn't make up for it. we loved puerto vallarta and will be going back soon, but never again to this property. being an all inclusive resort the food is a big part of your stay. we were so disappointed with the food that we left the resort to eat a lot which cost us more money. they do make the drinks very strong so if your into that sort of thing, getting drunk, then this is the place for you. we just aren't into that lifestyle anymore and didn't see the opportunity cost in the stiff drinks. oh, also the location is good because the bus stops right in front of the resort.
if you have other comparable options i would definitely look into something else.
