Served its Purpose - Place to stay and feel safe
Our stay at this hotel was good. I planned this trip with intentions of exploring Puerto Vallarta and not being in the hotel all day. With that said, the hotel served the main purpose; we had a safe place to stay, shower, eat and get ready for what was next. People working in the hotel were courteous. It has a restaurant that we used mostly to have breakfast (no near places to eat). The breakfast was good. It was a good experience.

Rooms are very spacious with great views however it advertises kids activities and club which is not accurate, the main reason we chose this hotel was for out little one to enjoy this amenity and was told at arrival that they do not have this available, also service at the beach area is very poor

First let me say that the staff is great. The food and drinks are also great. The view is great. Right on the ocean. The price is very reasonable. But this property is dated and in need of a remodel. We stayed here 20 years ago and not much has been done to upgrade the rooms. For example, we were on the 8th floor and the elevator was not working all the time. That's a pretty steep hike. Also, they hosted a wedding party that had a rock and roll band playing until 1:00 AM Overall, we probably won't go back.

Rooms with double beds in first tower needs updating , shower has weak water flow in 13th floor, our first room on 7th floor ,refrigerator does not close . Beds are comfortable. It is better to stay at 2nd tower has one bedroom units ,but no key card , has regular keys . Pool and beach area is nice, food is excellent .

4/10 Fair

The rooms were nice and maids did a good job. The food was not good, average at best. The beach chairs were ALL damaged but is all there was. The beach itself is all rocks and very painful to walk on; should be groomed. The elevators only hold 4 people and pretty tight at that...they are old. The pool water is too warm. The place needs a good renovation.

Great lagoon for snorkeling as it was sheltered from the surf. Not much of a beach though. Lots of noise from the nearby highway 200.

Sunsets and whales outside the windows.
The hotel is situated in a fantastic location on Banderas Bay. From your balcony you can catch whales, porpoises,stingrays and sea turtles as well as various fishing boats passing by. Last but least are the incredible sunsets that form in perfect view. The hotel staff is mostly friendly….the restaurant waiters could improve their service efficiency, the biggest problem we found while staying there. The rest of the staff, including the wait staff at the pool bar were terrific. One other area that can be considered a negative: the hotel’s proximity to the highway and the speed bumps in front. Both these elements frequently generate a lot of noise, especially from trucks hard braking or using their engine brakes to deal with the speed bumps. These sounds really carry, especially during the night. Anyway, we enjoyed our month here, seeing the whales in the bay, swimming with the fishes in the little lagoon formed by the breaker wall and enjoying a beautiful sunset every evening.
Small beach and sheltered lagoon ideal for snorkeling and swimming with     the fishes.
Typical sunset at the Costa Sur
