Bahia del Sol Resort
Ranked #27 of 28 Hotels in Nuevo Vallarta
Reviewed January 15, 2013

My father has owned here for two decades, my first visit was this December when a family reunion was held. Though my wife and I stayed at another resort down the beach, once we first saw this place, I understood why my father loved it so very much.

As it was one of the very first resorts to be built along this stretch of beach, back then, the Hacienda style of architecture was of fashion as it still should be today. This property represents all that is good about staying in a Mexican style resort. This is not a hi-rise, nor was it designed to see how many hundreds of people can you cram onto a piece of property as has been done to every other property adjacent along this beach.

No, this is a cute, very quiet, low key and delightful little place to enjoy a break form whatever you are escaping from. The staff I met were very friendly and helpful, the outside restaurant (the only one) serves a nice mix of simply, good eats at fair prices.

Even at Christmas time, there were always lounges available around the pool, what a surprise. Again we did not stay here, only spent time with our family but I can say with no doubt that this will be where we stay next time around.

My only complaint and it has only to do with the property Owner, is the he built the most UGLY high-rise next door, inches away from the existing building and as close to the beach as his evident bribes would reach. It's very sad but a testament of how poorly Mexico protects it's precious beaches. But then again, when was the last time you visited, Miami Beach?

My first trip to Nuevo Vallarta. The resort is very quiet, save for the BBQ on Tuesday night. The place was packed and the music had everyone dancing. A great party. It was over by 11.

The best part of this resort is the beach. There was plenty of room and plenty of palapa chairs. I spent most of the week on the beach reading. Very different from PVR beaches. There are vendors- about 10% of the number on PVR breaches.

I did do the turtle release activity.There is no charge at the moment, but they ask for a donation. The preserve is about 75 yards down the beach, If they have a turtle release, it is at 6:30 PM. You can walk over the the preserve and they will have a sign saying release today. It is in Spanish. I learned that Hoy means Today.

The room was dated but very clean. I used the kitchen and was pleased with the utensils provided.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. I needed to check something on the internet and they let me use the resort computer.

I thought the prices for restaurants and groceries were about 20% higher than in PVR. The grocery store is a 20 minute walk in Paradise Plaza.

Was a great week and I would return.

Very quiet place, not a party spot. A beautiful beach that stretches for miles. Next door at a turtle preserve they were releasing baby turtles every night (we stayed in middle of November). Really neat! Great staff. Restaurant on site was excellent, waiters would accommadate you with changes to the menu,and reasonably priced. Good restaurants within walking distance. We felt very safe in the Nuevo Vallarta area.

We spent the first two weeks of November 2011 at this facility. The main reason to keep coming back is the people. Everyone that stays here is friendly. There are only 69 units and 21 are full time owners from various locations in the states and Canade. That means there are only 48 units available to rent. That being said, you do not have to wade thru lounge chairs to get to the pool or feel crowded. The beach is almost private with residents the only ones that use the area directly in front of the hotel. There is a large vacant area to the north and the building to the south is whole ownership so very few people around. The food is good and reasonably priced.
The gentleman working at the reception desk is Gilberto and can be extremely helpful. He can make reservations for you, call a cab or just give you good information. We tip him when we depart for all he has done for us.

Room Tip: Prefer ground floor but do not mind using other floors. We typically stay in E building which has a...

We chose this resort because it's a small complex with palapas on the beach. Nothing fancy,rooms can be spartan but clean with great views from the balconies. The restaurant Seahorse is a added bonus. If after a hard day at the beach you don't feel like venturing out you you can dine there. They serve breakfast,lunch,snacks and drinks on the beach and dinner. Nice staff, especially Anidal and Margarita. The gardeners do a really nice job on the landscaping. Make sure you check out the baby turtle release program next door...fun to see them head out to sea for the first time.

We found this to be a comfortable small resort. Nice pool, large unit, the people working were friendly and helpful. The restaurant had wonderful food and the service was good . The waters could not do enough to take care of you. They even fix items that are not on the menu. The sunsets are gorgous.

Room Tip: There are no elevators and the buildings are four stories.
