Paradise Village Beach Resort & Spa
Ranked #18 of 28 Hotels in Nuevo Vallarta
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 13, 2013

Paradise Village is beautiful, clean and a great place to relax. There are numerous restaurants and they can be expensive for the portions received, but thee is a grocery store very near-by and we ate breakfast in our beautiful suite. We had a one bedroom and my husband and I each had our own bathroom!
The staff were very attentive to our needs. The sales people that tried to get us to sign us up for a "time share tour" were not pushy so we did not go on the tour as we are not interested in purchasing.
Beaches were clean and great for long walks. The resort has free kayaking and bike rentals for just $5 per hour.
We would return!

Room Tip: the one bedroom suite has a pull out couch and its own TV so it sleeps 4 very well.

We only stayed a week and did not spend a lot of time at the resort itself but it is a great beach for swimming( very safe) and walking.The beach vendors were very polite and did take no for an answer. Our room was spacious and kept very clean. We had the basics for cooking. There is a mall nearby where you can purchase just about anything you need. Not cheap but convenient.There are actually Siberian tigers on the site. We could see them form our deck. Felt very sorry for them as cages quite small but they have been successfully breeding them so that is good.

We stayed at this resort Jan 25th for a one week all inclusive. The resort was beautiful and the rooms were spacious and kept very clean each day. The food and service we recieved was excellent. The staff here are very nice and attentive. It didnt matter where we went to eat the waiters were quick to get what we wanted and were so nice. A special thanks to Sergio and Javier who rotated being our waiters on the beach each day. They remembered our room numbers and we were never without a drink or something to snack on if we were hungry.
We never used the pool facility as we were enjoying the beach too much. There was never an issue with finding loungers for the 4 of us and you didnt have to be up at 6 am to reserve them. We would go down for breakfast about 930 every day and then go find chairs and always find something to our liking.The beach was beautiful, the ocean was warm and you could walk for miles along the soft sand.
The only disappointing things were that not everything was available for all inclusive guests. If you wanted them you had to pay extra. These included room service items, the ice cream shack and some drinks on the menu. This is our 5th trip to Mexico and I have not stayed at a resort yet where I could not get either a baileys on ice or a mix drink that had baileys in it that wasnt included in our stay. We found that really strange that we had to pay extra here if we wanted it. All in all though we had a great time and would recommend this resort.

Wonderful beach; lovely clean property; all the amenities (we did "all inclusive"), great breakfast and fish tacos for lunch, dinner so-so; highly recommend! Be ready with your tips ... but, that's Mexico. Be sure to get a pina colada to enjoy during your walk on beach!

Room Tip: Ask for the ocean view

we stayed here last year and enjoyed it so much we decided to try it again and are glad that we did. we stayed from dec. 31 till jan 19 and we where all inclusive which is how we always travel.most of the people here are time share owners and to drink & eat all your meals here would be quite expensive.for us you could have your breakfast alacart or buffet and suppers are alacart unless you want the monday night mexican or the wednesday western night. we tryed these last year both where very good especially the mexican show. this year we only did the italian night on sat. both here and on shrimp fest. the had a really good band playing.for people on all inclusive who complain about the food than they just cant be pleased. the beef tenderlion was as goog as it is back home i had all my steaks done medium RED otherwise they are to well done for me mine were awsome. i love shrimp and had shrimp every day either for supper or for lunch. the beach bar/rest for lunch makes great sandwiches/burgers/tacos etc.
here & at the tulum rest. they made us food that was not no the menu. my wife loves cke floats and once we toid our waiter how she had it quite often.some of the waiters remembered us from last year.a couple of bucks tip goes a long way as they remember you and i belive the service is faster these people work for peanuts and a tip goes a long way.this year they even had a pizza place called luggies and my wife said it was awsome.yes you have to sign a bill for everything but what the heck rexal your on holidays. if your in such a hurry order your bill before you have finished your meal.this year we brought an extra beach bag which we would put our water/pop & beer in and bring up to our room to stock pile our fridge with.we loved our room in the coba tower from last year so i emailed a few months before and asked if we could have the same room and we got it.we brought some microwave pop corn with us so we could have a little munchie.the room was good and so was the maid service.the grounds are spotless
and we reallt enjoyed the quite pool.we spend most of our time on the little island at the quite pool.if we come back to pv. next year we will defitnely return here.

4 of us stayed at the Paradise Village and we even did the all-inclusive upgrade which really worked out well for us, but most people we met didn't. We were all drinkers and love the restaurants, so feel as though we got our money's worth. Just didn't want the hassle of trying to go to the store and stocking up etc., but if you don't drink or eat much, then that should work out well also. The service at the adult pool area was really good earlier in the week thanks to David and the girl who wore a baseball cap, but it slowed down on Thur and especially friday Feb 1, we really had a hard time getting waited on. It seemed as though the hotel was not staffing very well for pool service. The rooms were very good, we had a 7th floor marina view and were very satisfied with the beds, room and balcony. Nice touch with 3 different zones for each room for the A/C. Nice landscaping and beach, walking area, we would go back again.

My first encounter with Paradise Village was in January of 2004. I do extensive traveling throughout Canada and the US and on this occasion was in PV filming a PBS golf show. Paradise Village had provided us with the accommodation. My impression at that time was it would be a great place to take my family. We came, we saw, we visited 3 years in a row. Took a few years off to visit the Playa Del Carmen side, and thought we'd try PV one more time.

Here is my update impressions of an old favorite

Cleanliness:

First of all for me is cleanliness. The place is spotless. The rooms were clean, large and comfortable. The maid was excellent and although the signs in the kitchen said they do NOT do dishes, we found with a 4-dollar tip a day, they were always done. We had the 1 bedroom standard, and upgraded to the 1 bedroom superior after 1 night - both were well appointed and above all spotless. I must add, probably the biggest rooms in Mexico that we have ever stayed in by far!

Safety:

With children there is always the safety factor. Paradise Village is a gated resort in Nuevo Vallarta, so I felt safer their than I do at home. The purified tap water was a nice touch as well. I had read on several forums that the time-share people at Paradise Village were relentless. This is the farthest thing from the truth. We were never approached, and ironically this is probably the only place we would consider buying a timeshare! We joked repeatedly that maybe we look like we don't have any money.

Activities:

The activities team are first rate, but far more laid back then those of the mega-resorts on the east coast. There are a handful of things to do each day, and many are geared towards everyone. Most activities around the pool included the children, or had a separate event for children. Most of the beach activities (like volleyball) were for adults only. I will say that if I were a couple, I'd probably think twice about staying here at the "family" times of the year like Christmas, and Spring Break. The beach is always quiet but the pools always had lots of children in and around them.

Food:

At Paradise Village they do offer an all-inclusive program, but frankly the cost is so high we have never taken it. This year we found a deal through Westjet that included the "All Inclusive" plan so we tried it. The service and food quality was excellent, as it's always been. Top notch food, really more like a great restaurant. Buffets are kept to a minimum, and you can always order off the menu. We had planned to eat several times in town but ended up eating every single dinner in the complex. Most days we ate at the Tulum restaurant, our personal favorite. Meals were reasonable in the $12 - $18 range for dinner, less expensive for breakfast and lunch. You sat overlooking the beach with palm trees swaying overhead. We have paid a lot more for the same thing in Hawaii. The best part was the theme nights. This was our most expensive meal for the 4 of us would have run about $200, which is a little high if you were paying for it on the European plan. Of course if you never want to eat out, you can always prepare every meal in your room.

Service:

This may be the one area where the resort is lacking. Our maid service was second to none, but waiters continually forget basic items like steak knives when you order steak. The family we were traveling with liked their beer with a glass to pour it in. Do you think they could EVER remember this? You would constantly have to ask for certain requests. Many waiters looked overworked and under the stress of being understaffed. Meals would come sometimes 10 minutes before other meals in the party. Acceptable at lunch, but not when your trying to bill yourself as a "Gourmet All-Inclusive". The waiters were always friendly and did there best.

In closing I have to say that this was one of my best times in Mexico. I have been to Cabo, Ixtapa, Mexico City, San Jose Del Cabo and Guadalajara. Although each place was special, at this time in my life with children, Nuevo Vallarta and Paradise Village once again exceeded my expectations. The beach was perfect (not as blue as the Atlantic side but no rocks either), the pools were fabulous, and represents great value on the All-Inclusive plan. Paradise Village may not be the least expensive place in PV, but as the old adage goes, you get what you pay for.
