We loved the whole experience with our family of 5 (2 adults and 3 adult children). It was a clean, beautiful resort with great food and wonderful staff. We especially liked the prime-rib dinner in the buffet restaurant, and enjoyed an excellent Italian meal at the specialty restaurant. Great service everywhere. Compliments to everyone. The first night was a bit noisy with a graduation party, but they were gone the next day.
We've usually been to adult only resorts so we were worried about all the kids but it wasn't bad at all. This resort was great for the value. The music can get loud on one side of the pool area, but if you're on the other side, it's fine. We were also on the 6th floor and didn't hear any of the late music. It is far from downtown and traffic can build up on the one road. So if you wanted to go there, plan a full day down there.
We were upgraded for our stay to a grand master suite which was phenomenal! We loved the view from the wrap around balcony and the room was very comfortable. The pool and beach were also fantastic! We really enjoyed our stay overall and had a great time. The food was decent but not overly impressive, especially for the price of the all-inclusive. The reservations at the restaurants booked up prior to our arrival so we never had the chance to eat anywhere except the buffet, so book your reservations early. Overall a great time though! Would definitely go back.
Everything is there. Dont need to go off site if you dont want to. Few vendors. nice beach and public beach nearby. Four star hotel with all kinds of distractions and ways to spend your money. Nightly entertainment is on par with others. Great pools. Great location fabulous rooms - get the ones with sunset sun. They are warmer Fighting for beach chairs was a gigantic pain. why do people 'claim' chairs and not show up at all. Introduced American competitive attitudes which intrudes on the vacay experience.
Hotel limpo perto de restaurantes e do centro da cidade. O preço foi bom para o que obtivemos através do booking.com. A equipe era simpática em sua maioria. O único problema que tive foi que quando eu solicitei um check-out tardio, eles recusaram. Eu pedi para falar com o gerente e eles mudaram de ideia e deram-me uma hora extra. Isso me pareceu estranho, foi a primeira vez que me disseram não para um check-out tardio mediante pedido em qualquer hotel.
A localização era central o suficiente para caminhar até a maioria dos lugares e as filas de ônibus e táxi eram fáceis de utilizar. Os quartos eram muito limpos e a equipe foi muito educada. Bebidas adultas bastante fracas. O estado dos quartos era ok, mas nada de especial e o nosso estava um pouco mofado. Eles também estavam fazendo reformas nos últimos 2 andares do hotel enquanto estávamos lá. Dava pra ouvir todas as conversas que aconteciam no hall e a nossa descarga às vezes era acionada sozinha e era muito alta. Se você adora versões ruins de qualquer música, então este resort tem a seleção de músicas certa para você.
Fica a uma curta distância da cidade. Me deram um quarto que já estava ocupado
- o serviço no geral é ótimo. - é um novo hotel, então tudo está em perfeitas condições. - o SPA é fantástico. - a comida é excelente, mas tem opções limitadas. - a limpeza do hotel é excelente - a equipe se esforça para oferecer um atendimento excelente - a praia é muito rochosa. - áreas limitadas de verde - sistema All Inclusive com opções limitadas de jantar.
Pool and beach and staff there and all restaurant staff and food amazing!!!! I emailed manager about a cost issue and never got a response and ceiling fan in room didn't work and showed head was clogged so only half the water holes worked so no water pressure
The location is right on the beach and provides great views and ambiance. The hotel feels squished in between other hotels and buildings. The surrounding area is not pleasant to walk around, except for the beach. The hotel feels clean but then things will start to fail, like the toilet didn't work and lights didn't work in our room. The language barrier is obviously difficult to overcome when you need repairs like this, but I felt like the maintenance staff was irresponsible and would just disappear if they didn't know how to fix the problem. By far the most disappointing thing was the food. For an all inclusive, the food was intolerable. We only at the buffet and then the Mexican restaraunt and found both to be some of the worst food we have ever had. We paid more than we should for a last minute NYE trip but I feel totally ripped off.
Well maintained, nice ambiance, comfortable beds, nice/big bathroom Own food/drinks may not be brought into the hotel (bag search)! Exaggerated prices for breakfast, internet etc. Room doors are not soundproof.
The staff worked realy hard to make a pleasant experience. The food was satisfactory at best. Not a good value for the money. Service to time share holders was a priority, the rest of the guests were given less attention.
Loved everything about this place. Great food, great selection of beers and cocktails as part of the all inclusive package. My only complaint would be that the beds could be a bit more comfortable.
The pool and beach were wonderful. The food was great. Loved the omelette, smoothie and quesadilla stations for breakfast. The fish tacos are a must! The grill not only offered hamburgers, hot dogs and chicken wings but guacamole and pico. The rooms were all pool and ocean view and very adequate. But what really stood out was the staff. Not only were they friendly and accommodating to the guests but never saw any impatience or aggravation between coworkers. We WILL be back to Puerto Vallarta and it WILL be at Fiesta Americana.
The Resort was pretty spot on and the lobby was simply stunning. We stayed on the 9th floor and got a great view of the beach and the surrounding area. Hotel staff was friendly and there were plenty of drinks. Family friendly resort Not exactly for younger couples looking to party. The resort next door looked like they were having a blast the entire time. Friendly Vallarta next door is where the party was happening: DJ, Mariachi, Banda, they had everything. I fee like Fiesta Americana should do something similar if not bigger. Not too much of a bummer though, quick taxi ride to where all the night life is happening
good location wish they have free internet....food and drinks a little bit higher.
Staff is very friendly and polite, always willing to please the customer. Comfortable bed. . Hotel pillows very hard. Very nice small beach, pool. Nice bar in the lobby that stays open late. The Ceviche was great at the restaurant by the beach. Beach waiters are excellent. Not being able to accommodate large groups in restaurants, only one table for 8 people in each restaurant, and always taken. Waiters were not permitted to join 2-3 tables to accommodate my party. Tables available at buffet but not too many choices of food, gets tiring after few days. In order to share some meals together as a family we end up eating out at La Leche and town restaurants, spending money not in budget. Would not recommend for groups with more than 5 people.
great location if you're looking for a beach and a swimming pool. all rooms have ocean view, are clean and have the expected comfort for this standard. Breakfast restaurant in particular is super: in open air and at the beach side. it might be the only negative point of this hotel, but the sound isolation of the rooms is terrible (concrete building, tiles and concrete all over the rooms and corridors (no carpets) boost any sound all over the building ).
All around great stay!!!!!
The hospitality of the staff.
Wonderful lobby, all rooms with ocean view, comfortable beds. On check in, the desk quoted 2 1/2 times the rate I had booked. I straightened out with a copy of the email from booking.com, On checking out, the same person did the same thing. One mistake I can understand. The same again, and within 24 hours makes me a bit leary. Service around the pool was good, but server never returned with change, thus "earning" a much higher tip than normal.
Great people, food and drinks Had to leave to early to go to the airport
Being in the heart of the city. Walk to cathedral, bus to Arches for snorkelling, local authentic Emilio Zapata market. Family owned restaurants Main city street noise. Get room off Main street
The rooms were clean and has your basic needs. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. We needed to use the phone to confirm a tour and the guy at the front desk called for me. They also stored our bags for us while we went out since check out was at noon and we didn't have to leave until later. The beach was not even a minute walk away. The market was across the street and there were placed to eat all around us. The location was great. I wish the wi-fi worked throughout the hotel and not just in our room.
Excellent staff, excellent location, clean and comfortable room, quiet. Would recommend to anyone that wants a great place at a great price. WiFi in the room would cut out a lot.
The price is obviously a plus. The staff were really nice and the concierge spoke really good English. The air conditioning worked really well. The pool is beautiful however right in the middle of everything so everyone is watching you from the restaurant and the hotel rooms. I also liked the location, it felt right inside of the culture of Puerto Vallarta, it didn't give off that resort vibe at all, if that's what you're looking for. The shower we had would always flood the entire bathroom, with only a thin curtain and no ledge to catch the excess water. Also, everything just felt dirty. We found a weird yellowish stain on our sheets and they always felt a little sticky. Oh and by far the worst part was all of the fleas. There were hundreds of fleas in the bed, on the floor. Everywhere. And even though the air conditioning worked, it was so loud it's hard to hear your spouse talk.
I loved the room in the preferred with jacuzzi on the balcony. And the preferred bar. Most of the staff was nice, some others were nicer if you tipped. Pools and view were top notch. Other all inclusive resorts I've been at included some free excursions this one had none and not many daily activities to choose from. The options on food was limited on options and time. Only loved one restaurant, Bordeaux. Dress code requirements were a bit restrictive, should have more options for lenient dress. DON'T BUY LIQUOR ON THE CITY TOUR! COMPLETE RIP OFF!
Attended the wedding of my best friend with no date, at this VERY romantic resort and had a GREAT time! Not a place to meet singles as it's mostly couples but there are so many things to do that the time simply flew by (but didn't feel like it at the same time)! The staff was INCREDIBLE!
The service was top notch. Facilities outstanding. Food was good. I have nothing negative about this place. They took care of me from the moment I arrived until I checked out.
Incrivelmente pequeno quarto. Nada como as imagens de reserva.
Excelente localização. Central para todas as área da cidade velha. Algumas vistas agradáveis. À direita na praia. Um hotel muito decente para PV. Talvez um pouco caótico com turistas às vezes. Quartos pequenos. Nada extravagante.
Palavra "meh" iria me ajudar a definir o valor. Valor do preço. Preço é apenas incentivar a inflação desnecessários para a cidade. Ele precisa ser mais barato.
Beautiful atmosphere, large room, good food. They sneakily roped us into a VERY unpleasant time share presentation and were pretty rude about it. We only stayed for 1 night so they basically soured our entire opinion of the place. You also need to take a shuttle and go through a bunch of annoying stairs or elevators just to get from your room to the main lobby.
I hardly ever take the time to review places I've stayed, but I felt the need to share my opinion on this one... My fiance and I recently stayed 3 nights in the honeymoon suite, and we couldn't have been happier! The room (and the entire resort) was gorgeous, the food and drinks were great, and the staff were all sooo friendly and accommodating. It was luxury & relaxation at its finest, and we would highly recommend this resort to anyone! We are missing it already :)
Staff was unconditional, very friendly and respectful. The pools were clean at all times as well as the whole property. The room was always clean and well maintained Their food is really good. Must try the japanese restaurant The beach is beautiful try snorkeling in there they have very cute fish. Sometimes, the trolley took forever. And if you are planning on leaving the property early before the trolley starts operating try to walk to the lobby because when we had our excursion to marrietas islands we called for a ride to the lobby ( we were in tower 5) and they never made it. We had to walk to the lobby and then wait for a taxi in the lobby. We ended up being late to the excursion meeting time. But were lucky enough to get in to the boat.
Close to airport and marina The internet sucks.
I was able to walk there from the airport and it only cost 80 pesos to get a taxi the next morning to the central bus terminal. The wifi signal was very strong in all the public areas including around the pool. Although not as strong in my room, it was still good enough. The continental breakfast included yogurt, granola, and fresh fruit as well as the usual stuff. It's a ways from the beach and from Old Town for people who are planning a longer stay.
I enjoyed my first experience at this hotel.
Good location It could have been cleaner
Dirty and not a good host. No one explained anything as far as the bracelets and bottled water. No one really spoke English
The actual villas, buildings and facilities are beautiful, keeping the Mexican style, with lots of green and quiet areas. Staff were very nice and not intrusive, polite and all spoke good English. We had friends staying next door at the Hilton and staff there were rude and annoying if you were just visiting while at Krystal they were nice with visitors and very considerate. It's obviously run down and needs fixing and updating. Air conditioning in the room was noisy. I guess that's why the price was lower! that of course brings low budget crowd and over the weekend it became very loud, teens and young adults had their own music very high at the pool and it was a cacophony, far too noisy. We moved to the palapas on the beach and it was ok.
I really enjoyed the location. It was a nice distance to the downtown and has a nice shopping center with many ammenities next to it. The beach was nice and very close. The wait to check in was too long. Staff did not take the time to explain all that was included for the room. I guess if you don't do the all inclusive the staff does not give you the time of day. I got more information from booking.com than I got from the hotel staff. I found more things on my own out of need. The hotel had a nice pool but all the chairs were fool and it was had to get around. Too many people and way too crowded. The beach was not as busy because all the chairs were already taken up to the main pool so people had to lay on the sand and it was uncomfortable. I guess if I had done the all inclusive it would have been a better experience.
Location: near restaurants, mall, super market, Marina, coffee shop, beach access, pool, courteous staff. Great water pressure in room, very spacious room to include bathroom and shower. Rooms need updating to include bed, pillows. Need an inroom coffee maker. Small fridge. Horrible internet connectivity in room.
there is too much noise in rooms no privacy at all too bad for a nice place
The location of the hotel. the food is very good and its price is reasonble. The maintenance of the rooms is poor. I had to request to the staff to be changed from the original room. Problems were leak of water from the shower to rest of the bathroom. Filtration of water from the upstair room to my room.
Room upgraded, lovely view, good pool waiters and restaurant staff. Reception manager tried to overcharge me on room price that was agreed with Active Hotels coming up with all sorts of reasons for the overcharge - had to argue over phone and face to face at reception with me actually adding up with a calculator at front desk to show manager that he was wrong. Eventually he agreed that he was wrong but by that time I was really stressed and this spoiled by last few days- really embarassing. Hotel no atmosphere at night, no entertainment, no music, same taped music around the pool for 14 days!! Location at entrance not nice as in dirty street downtown and had to walk through more dirty streets to get to the malecon. Left same comments with hotel for future customers
The staff was absolutely phenomenal. My partner and I were celebrating our 10 year anniversary and the staff was so welcoming and helpful. We booked one of the Honeymoon Suites and was delighted with it. The jacuzzi and hammock chair on the balcony were a very pleasant surprise and we used them every night. We loved that all the rooms had a sea view and the sunsets were gorgeous! The pool was clean and kept at just the perfect temperature. We will be booking again for next year's vacation.
The hotel was in a great location and close to downtown. The rooms were spacious and clean. Small balconies, late maid service,
Staff was very nice. The facilities were clean. It did not promise anything it did not deliver. The price was the same as the 5-star hotels 25 minutes south. My reason for staying at Villa Premier was that is was close into town. But the surrounding area kind of sucked. And Puerto Vallarta is not a super nice place and I would suggest to stay in a higher end place and venture out once a day into town.
The staff is very friendly, helpful, thoughtful and try to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. There is always an activity going on and the staff are very active in the activities. It is a smaller resort so the staff all get to know who you are relativity quickly. It really feels like you are staying with a family. The food is good, nothing spectacular and it doesn't change much. We did not go to the spa so we can't say anything about that. The staff puts on much of the entertainment and they do quite well and because you know them personally it makes the shows seem infinitely better. We paid by the night and it was the same price as a 4 star. Our room was big and clean. More than adequate but it is an older building in a hot humid climate so its pretty much what you would expect. It is also a smaller resort so groups can have a big influence on your stay. If you are expecting 4 or 5 star hotel rooms and food you may be disappointed. Honestly you have more fun here. If you are trying to stay away from kids it is challenging depending on groups staying.
The beach was nice. The Italian Restaurant was adults only. We ate there all 3 nights of our stay. The staff was great and the resort very clean, as we have mostly found to be true in Mexico. We were there celebrating our 35th anniversary. This was not the place for a tranquil vacation. There were lots of children and families. They bused in people on Saturday, and picked them up on Sunday. The resort was very crowded, particularly the pool. The food was mostly buffets. The snack bar served a greasy hamburger that smelled great and tasted even better.
Great service, outstanding food, beautiful resort. Many other guests were raving too. Best beachfront hotel for the money we've ever stayed in. Will definitely be back.
Hotel Encino is a charming old world beauty at a great price! Great location near markets, shops, restaurants and beach/boardwalk.
Front desk staff was friendly and hotel is easy access to boardwalk. Room was in poor condition. Stains on bedding, mattress hard and uncomfortable, and had to stand on a chair to reach the A/C unit. Booked another hotel and checked out within an hour. Encino refused to give a refund.
Nothing. Did not get free cancellation! Still had to pay. I will be fighting with my credit card. Even outside of three days. They still refused to cancel for free.
Price bathrrom smelled like sewer bed was VERY hard pillows were hard
Roof top pool often empty ( while I was there ) Roof top restaurant awesome food and cheap Maid were friendly Gilberto - one of the front desk employee Who is very friendly and alway smiling and goes beyond to help you if you need anything. Roof top restaurant only open at 4pm and closed Mondays. It was cheap and good food. Wish they were open earlier Did not sell or provide ice Bedsheets and towels often stained-
