best vacation thus far

i was worried about this vacation due to the affordable price, but overall it was amazing. the food options were great and they had something for everyone. The pool area was plenty big and there was a beach area that was also large and relaxing. the staff was wonderful and polite. I also had a massage on the beach for very cheap that was one of the best massages i have ever had. the resort was about 30 min from the airport and 30 min from downtown, which was fine. We did not travel downtown or off of the resort once we arrived. I felt very safe and happy with this trip. We did book transportation from the airport to the resort, that part was a little stressful. Once you get outside of the airport there are a lot of people and it is overwhelming. I had no idea who to trust or if i was taking the appropriate shuttle. If there were signs at the airport with the passengers names or if we knew more of what to expect (color shirt or vehicle) that would have been wonderful.

Okay stayed May 10-19th, 2018

So overall the resort is very nice and has the potential to be a great resort but, they first have to make a few improvements before that happens. Before I start to list all the negative things let me tell you some of the reasons I liked the resort. The hotel was very clean and well kept, the rooms were nice and large, the pool with the swim up bar and lounge chairs was great, and we never had a problem finding chairs on the beach or by the pool. The downside is there are only five restaurants to chose from and they were not that good, often one or more restaurant would be closed for the night. We just got back from an all-inclusive stay Aruba and the food was much better with more variety. The beach was nice but the water wasn't clear which wasn't a deal breaker because we enjoyed the waves. The hotel also has paper thin walls and you can hear everything that is happening in the hallway or next door, like my neighbor who coughed every morning. Also don't bother trying to get a a sail boat which they claim is included in the package. I took the lessons (paid) and went back three days in a row and was denied each time for various made up excuses such as, come back in an hour, when you come back your told you cant sail because of a current in the water (yet you see other small boats sailing around). Based on my experience and other options out there I would not recommend this resort.

What's to Love

No reservations needed at any of the restaurants.

The teal ocean and breezy palms on the white sand of Flamingos Beach. Swoon-worthy.

RiuLand, where kiddos can get immersed in arts and crafts while you enjoy some sand 'n surf therapy.

Sipping on cocktails and watching the crazy beautiful pinky orange sunsets over the water.

The spa where you can descend into stress-smashing messages & thalassotherapy, a seawater treatment.

The in-pool loungers where you can chillax, swim around a bit, then return to work on your tan.

 

What We'd Change

You'll love venturing into downtown Puerto Vallarta, but keep in mind, the cruise ships generally come in on Tuesday and Thursday so it can be busier on those days.

 

Why You Should Go

It's just 8 miles away from the airport. Blink, and you'll be there.

Don't miss horseback riding in the Sierra Madres or swimming with the dolphins in Banderas Bay.

There's an 18-hole, championship golf course that a coconut's throw away.

Check out the bodyboarding (it's very popular), windsurfing, catamarans and more. Dive in.

On land, there's volleyball, billiards and for the flexible/bendy types, there's gymnastics.
