Small beachfront resort; food was always good and plentiful. Excellent beachfront service! Staff always friendly and catering to the client. We were there during the Festival de Guadalupe, early December. Very impressive! We were welcomed to participate in the procession to the cathedral. We walked safely during the day and strolled the Malecon each evening. Looking forward to our next...

I had an amazing week at the friendly. The food is excellent with a handful of different restaurants to choose from so the food never gets old. They have wonderful nightly entertainment/special events and smaller events and activities all day long. They make everything from excursions to transportation very very easy.

The staff here are very helpful and friendly. We had a great stay. The only downfall is that the rooms need to be updated, specifically the bathrooms. Not horrible but not the best either. Outside of that its an awesome place to stay.

For a first time in Mexico it was a great experience. This is a family oriented resort and shows because a lot of the local mexicans and Canadian couples/familys come here. Lots of activities to keep you going all day long. Very friendly as their title says, and I would have to say even if its a little dated and...

I was bummed because, per reading the room tips, I emailed twice and requested a room in the center tower and got no response until the day I flew to PV saying they would do their best.
