Making friends

We enjoyed the pools and making friends The place was beautiful. Beaches great. Water like bath water in pools and beach. Fun activities for all ages. Relaxing also. The food was average. Japanese and Mexican restaurant were the best!! Drinks were very good. It was nice to have option of room service also. They kept the buildings clean. Ther are in some areas too many stop downs. I missed one and fell and hit my head in the marble column. Fortunately I didn't hit my head on the corner. Getting into the pools were easy but the flooring of the pools hurt our feet. A little too much grit on floors. Atmosphere beautiful. Loved waking up and sitting on balcony listening to the ocean rush in. The shows were a little lame. Wines were all dry. Nothing semi sweet. Portions in Italian restaurant were very small. Wanting spaghetti and didn't have. Tried calanni and wasn't pleased with. International restaurant was good but have had better. We did get to see eclipse which was special Our plane arrangements were a hassle. Need to do only one switch. Three switches were a bit much especially for someone in a wheel chair and if rain delays you're in for a full day of traveling. We did get on planes but very tiring We will think twice before booking if more than one stop

Awesome for little kids, food and room lacking

The pros slightly outweighed the cons for my young family, but there were issues that would prevent me from recommending it. Pros: -My 3 and 5 year old girls LOVED the kids club. This made our vacation. They spent 6 or more hours there a day (3 or more in the morning and then a block of 3 hours or so in the evening while the adults went to dinner). It was well organized with lots of fun activities. It is not a childcare service, so when your child asks to leave the staff will ring your pager and you must go get them. A lot of parents commented that I was very lucky because their kids wouldn't stay for more than 20-30 minutes. There are organized crafts, bungee trampoline, a climbing wall, nightly movies, face painting, trips to the restaurant (if a parent signs a permission form). -The spa was great. Make sure to give yourself extra time to enjoy the hydro circuit. - My family enjoyed the nightly entertainment. Most nightly included acrobatic/cirque de soliel style performers. -The ocean water was very warm due to the bay (about 87 degrees). -The staff was very friendly. Cons: -House keeping ignored us the last 3 days of stay. No restocking of the included minibar (waters and sodas for the kids), no clean towels, no clean sheets, no toilet paper. One day house keeping took my comforter and never replaced it. I called two days in a row requesting another comforter or duvet, but each time I only received a thin blanket. I thought it was a little ridiculous that the few times we received clean towels only 3 towels were left for a family (it was obvious from the amount of stuff in our room that several people were staying there). We had to call to request toilet paper at least 3 times. -The full size mattresses seemed smaller than standard size (my daughter has a full at home that is noticeably wider). One adult and one small child on each bed was tight. -The mattresses and pillows were not comfortable. -The food wasn't great. We're not foodies by any means, but my mother-in-law only liked 2 of the dinner restaurants (the Italian and French over at Secrets). Surprisingly, the cheeseburgers by the pool were one of the best things there. The fish dishes were outstanding and the catch of the day at dinner was always a good choice. -The Beach is very rocky. This is standard in the area. We were fine because we read reviews beforehand and brought water shoes. Without the water shoes we wouldn't have been able to walk into the waves. -The Beach is public and the second you step on the sand you are bombarded by people selling goods, excursions, drugs (they seem to mostly approach men), hair braiding. I'm pretty sure the hotel can't make them leave and the wait staff is constantly monitoring the area to help keep the harassment to a minimum. Overall, the benefit we received from the kids club made the vacation for us and I would visit this resort, or another in the chain, again while my kids are in this stage. The vibe is very family friendly and active. Had my kids not utilized the kids club, I don't think I would go back. *** Side note: The Now and Secrets are connected (virtual mirror images) and share entertainment, the spa, certain restaurants and soon a casino. If I had paid for and planned an adults only resort I would not have been pleased with how intertwined the resorts are.

Stunning Banderas Bay with sapphire waters that will soothe your weary soul.

What We'd Change

Three of the a la carte restaurants never open for lunch. With the views and breezes at Barefoot Grill on the beach, though, you might not even notice!

 

Why You Should Go

It's a 15-minute jaunt from the airport. Your refreshing welcome drink is waiting.

You can walk to PVs boardwalk "El Malecon" - shopping, dining, nightlife await you.

Hanging out in the open-air lobby with dreamy views of the ocean and mountains is epic. Aahh-some sunset perch.

You'll enjoy complimentary green fees at Marina Vallarta and Vista Vallarta Golf Club (through June 30, 2016).
