I have visited PVR frequently over the past 10 years and have stayed at this hotel about 3 times (from staying at Presidential Suite to average room) and feel this is great place to stay in PVR. My wife and I got an amazing rate on Priceline ($42/night) for our stay March 29-April 3rd) and you cant beat that!. We stayed in the hotel, not the Club Regina time-share side. First I have to say that the staff is attentive, friendly, and they aim to please from Fridel Von Son (guest services manager) who gave us a complementary upgrade with nice welcome gift (ie. Chocolate covered strawberries as we were celebrating special occasion) to bellstaff, poolboys (hola to Jorge/Hector!), housekeeping to the reception staff ...everyone was wonderful and helpful.
We had nice oceanfront room on 7th floor with heavenly Westin beds. Yes the hotel overall could use some TLC and be remodeled but my wife and I found the hotel to be adequate for what we wanted....R &R. It seems like everyone wanted to be at pool but my wife and I would every day go to beach and find a spot without going at 6 am and "reserving a spot." I had been to Westin PVR when Nikki Beach was there so found it to be a shame that it and the nearby restaurant had closed...but I guess it is function of overall depressed economy.
This hotel is located in Marina part of PVR which is 10 minute cab ride to downtown/Malecon...this generally is quiet part of PVR and not on main street so nice to have quiet neighborhood. We didnt eat at restaurant as we would go to Pizza & Beer place across street for breakfast/lunch and then we dined in downtown every night..although we did eat/drink at beach bar and food/drinks were standard fare. Across from hotel there is a OXXO store (7-11 type store) which we would go to by snacks/water
In any case the beach is small but adequate....not Cancun white beaches but sufficient for you to enjoy Banderas Bay...and the sunsets are stunning!
Overall we would return and stay here for right price and were more than happy with our stay!
