What We Love

  • We highly recommend Ohtli, the resort's full-service spa. It offers everything from Pilates to traditional Mayan body treatments to recharge after a day of fun.

Things to Know

  • With Mexican-inspired decor and activities like Spanish lessons, an amazing spa, nearby golf and terrific pools, this resort offers a cool, exotic vacation.
A haven for couples and families, diverse offerings at this resort on El Salado Beach is a wonderful getaway for just about anyone. Chief among those offerings is the state-of-the-art Ohtli Spa, where guests can choose from a variety of hydrotherapies, massages, body scrubs and more in a facility that's more than 22,000 sq. ft. And that's just the beginning.

At this resort, kids and toddlers get their own pools, which are surrounded by lounge chairs and umbrellas for parents. The family pool has a unique rock-garden island and a sunset-view infinity edge, plus a whirlpool. For sand in your flip-flops, walk out to El Salado Beach, where you can kick back in the complimentary lounge chairs, and enjoy views of aquamarine-colored water and white sand.

When you've worked up an appetite, it's time for a casual lunch at the open-air restaurant Las Casitas. Or, check out burgers, fries and wings at Champions Sports Bar. If you want a more elegant experience, Mikado serves Japanese and Thai dishes in a refined and soothing ambiance. For evening entertainment, the Lobby Bar can hook you up with cocktails and Mexican-style tapas, fine tequila and live music.

Another standout feature of this resort is the Kids Club. While parents enjoy quality time together, kids ages 4-12 can hang out and join in supervised activities. Local craftsmen teach them how to paint barro-clay pottery, and if the climate and season are just right, kids might even get to participate in the Sea Turtle Rescue Program by attending a baby turtle release ceremony!

After a day of Caribbean bliss, retreat to the comfort of signature bedding, featuring plush mattresses, soft sheets and a luxurious abundance of pillows. If you're not quite ready for bed, a broad walkway lined with shops, bars and restaurants is only 216 yd (200 m) away!

    Escape 2020

    The Marriott PV is our traditional February-March escape from Chicago winter. Given COVID-19 I have been delayed in writing our review and also almost hesitant, for selfish reasons, to welcome others to the Marriott PV. It is outstanding from the moment you arrive at the front door with a "welcome home, or welcome to paradise and welcome back."And you will meet another wonderful Marriott Staff person, Ernesto the greeter and his assistant Mitzi the cat. Greet them for us. Some of the staff have been at this Marriott for 20+ years. What a joy it was for us, at our first breakfast in Las Casitas, on the ocean, to be greeted by Carlos. We have been privileged to sit at his table for several years. And one by one we were greeted by his colleagues Ernesto, Jorge, Francisco and their supervisor Warren. For three weeks we had breakfast with these wonderful friends. I dare not forget Simon Coulson, the chief concierge who annually cares for all of our needs from the airport pickup, to recommendations for dinner and more and more. Simon is "the man." I stayed 100 nights in Marriotts of one kind or another in 2019 and you will not find the outstanding service that is a given at the Marriott PV. This truly is a special place. The remodeled pool and pool restaurant is well done. Service around the pool is so efficient that the wait staff remember your name and what you will order and when, thanks Victor. Pool/towel hut staff were attentive, efficient and very pleasant: Lorena, Bryan, Ulisses and others. Rooms are clean, comfortable with great housekeeping staff. Hats off to the landscaping staff who are always attending to the beautiful flora and fauna.Make sure you check out the spa and fitness center where you will be greeted by Sr. Gonzalo. Do we recommend the Marriott PV, just minutes from the airport, indeed we do but save room for us...we'll be back in 2021. We are now concerned for the outstanding staff as they too face the pandemic. This too will pass and I hope soon. Thanks to all for a great three weeks.

    Beautiful property Beautiful people

    My experience was superb. We stayed at a vidanta resort in Nuevo Vallarta prior to our check in at the Marriott. We decided to extend our stay and check in to the Marriott spa and resort. From our check in to our departure we were treated as 5 star guests. Warren our server at las Casitas was wonderful he was knowledgeable of the area and things to see and do. Omar, Jorge and Christian great service, great energy and very helpful. True dedicated workers. Very clean Hotel,Great food and service. Everyone had a smile on their face and all willing to help with all our needs. Hugo at the cab stand was most helpful as well. Truly a luxurious place to stay. Beautiful beach Great pool and the people were all amazing. Thank you. Gitta

    Wonderful resort

    We recently returned from a 9 night stay at the Marriott Puerto Vallarta Resort. We had stayed here about 6 years ago. The recent improvements are wonderful. The best part of our stay, aside from the beauty, were the attentive staff. Of particular note are Victor and Raul, waiters in the pool area. Also, Sylvestri was the water aerobics instructor and always attracted a fun crowd. Eduardo in the pool bar was wonderful. In Las Casitas Benjamin was fantastic. The resort was spotless. The food was reasonable priced. Once this pandemic is over we will return!!

    Fantasitc particularly in light of Covid-19

    Everyone was very friendly and the rooms were exceptionally clean. Covid-19 was just getting worse in the U.S. and the staff was doing double-time cleaning everything in sight. It was sad to see the resort empty during our stay, but everyone remained upbeat and pleasant.
