    My family and I stayed 5 nights here and definitely we will come back, the COVID protocol measures that are taken here are seriously, the occupancy is no more than 25%, no buffets, everything is à la carte, ask for Armando and Alejandro in the mexican restaurant, Carlos, Ismael and Rafael in the pool area are awesome, Martha in entertainment. Due to the COVID situation most of the kids activities are closed however my kids enjoyed the stay, don’t doubt it, stay here.

    Updated Review - An Enjoyable & Memorable 9 Day Family Vacation

    I recently returned from a 9-day stay at Fiesta Americana. My previous review was titled "Buyer Beware", based on the rocky start. We booked and confirmed the presidential suite. Upon check-in we were informed our room wasn't available and that they did not know when it would be available. As you can imagine, we were extremely disappointed and would not have booked such a long trip to stay in a room with two double beds with 2 kids. After 3 days, we were informed our suite was available and proceeded to move. Overall, the stay was made incredible by Team "Nacho" (Ignacio) & Rafael. They are the definiton of excellent customer service. If you stay at this resort, it's worth getting up early to secure a lounge chair in their section. I also recommend a spa treatment with Josefina. Her massage will definitely get you relaxed and ready to enjoy your vacation. The Asian restaurant was by far the best, which I admit I was surprised by considering we were in Mexico so I thought the Mexican restaurant would have been the best. It wasn't bad, but the Asian restaurant was just that much better.

    July 4th at the Fiesta Americana Puerto Vallarta ..

    JULY 4th 2018 was one of the most memorable Trips down to the FIESTA AMERICANA. We have stayed at the resort for over 36 years and this was our first time in July. The weather was just perfect, the skies blue, the bay clean and warm and of course the staff was excited to honor their American guests. PARADES around the pool, special treats and activities and a huge celebration in the ballroom for the evening.The hotel prepared a banquet fit for a king with every conceivable bbq food. The sides, salads and desserts were incredible. Entertainment was stilt walking Uncle Sams and a very nice rock band. Although i was in a surgical boot because of surgery and a snapped bone i was able to hold the American flag proudly and high in the sky!

    Best way we could have celebrated mom's 70th and daughter's 28th birthdays!

    One of the most memorable, fun, and enjoyable family vacations ever! We found Fiesta Americana on Costco travel, and we could not have asked for anything better. From the staff, to the food, the resort itself, proximity to the beach, ease of travel to downtown PV...but most especially the staff. It was a double celebration, and the resort and staff made sure that they were celebrations to remember. We especially would like to thank Luis for the best day at the pool ever!, To David, Vicente and Anahi and so many other restaurant staff who made meals such a pleasant experience. Esp to those who made my daughter's birthday such a special celebration, including our very own pianist! We will come back to Fiesta Americana as often as we possibly can. We went just before the covid crisis hit, and so thankful that we were able to enjoy the warmth and hospitality of this resort before travel became restricted. We hope and pray that all the staff are safe and healthy. Thank you Fiesta Americana for the best 2020 birthday celebrations we could have hoped for!! We will never forget the fabulous time we had there.
