“Great Resort”
Reviewed 8 April 2012

We were at Casa Magna March 29 - April 4. We arrived at 12:30 and were allowed to check in from our room. We were poolside having lunch and drinks by 1 pm. We thought that this Marriott was very clean, comfortable and had great service. We were on 7th floor and had an amazing view of the ocean and mountains. We didn't eat many meals there because we enjoyed walking to Marina and Malecon. We did eat lunch from Mangos a few times and the sandwiches were large enough to share and were very good. We also would get codes for free wifi each time we spent money there, so that was added bonus with teenagers. The only 2 negatives for our family were that wifi was not included and that it was not a smoke free hotel like all of the Marriotts in US. There were so many nasty smokers around the pool that it did ruin the atmosphere. Luckily there are lots chairs to move around to get away from the disgusting smokers. However, it would have been nice to enjoy the beautiful view without looking through and inhaling smoke. We would stay here again unless we could find a smoke free hotel in same area. If so, we would pay more to not have to be around trashy smokers.

The title says it all, a place full of lazy and ignorant American tourists paying with US dollars. After spending a few hour in this place (or any other hotel in the area) you wonder no more why Americans aren't that liked in Mexico.

And this leads me to the actual review of the hotel... The hotel itself was good, no question about that. Marriot hotels tend to be good and CasaMagna was no exception. Rooms were clean and air-conditioned, the location right on the beach and it only took about 15 minutes to get to the old town by a taxi.

But, if you are like me you should avoid this hotel. I hate overpriced resorts like this one. The only reason I stayed at this place was because my colleagues wanted to visit Puerto Vallarta since we were in Mexico (even though far away from the coast). I woudl much rather go to some quiet spot on a beach and find a B&B or a hostel or something. But that's just me and I won't let my own preferences to bias with the hotel review. Like I said, hotel was clean and service was good, as was the location. So the basics were right!

And one tip for getting to the place from the airport, for example. We arrived by a bus from Guadalajara and took a taxi to the hotel from the bus station (or terminal, how the bus stations are called in Mexico). The bus station is across the street from the airport, you only have to walk about 400 meters to get there. The taxi from the bus station to the CasaMagna costed 60 pesos (3,55 € or 4,60 $). I know that there are fixed rides to the venue from the airport, but they cost over 20 $ so it's up to you what to do.

I couldn't have picked a better hotel for my first visit to Puerto Vallarta. The CasaMagna Marriot Puerto Vallarta Resort & SPA is located in Marina Vallarta (only a few minutes - and 50 pesos - away from the airport) and just distant enough from the center of town. Beautiful structure located right on the beach and with perfect views of the mountains surrounding the bay of Puerto Vallarta. After my 1st visit to downtown Puerto Vallarta, I was 100% convinced that I picked the right place to be as I would have not liked to be in a hotel anywhere near the town. Although I made many trips to the center of town, old Puerto Vallarta and etc., the CasaMagna provided me with the exclusive vibe I longed for while in Mexico. With a few excellent restaurants on premise one doesn't really have to leave the hotel to savor a great autentic meal. The staff was exceptionally well trained and attentive to my requests. The hotel has a great exercise facility attached to a beautiful spa. Enfin, SIMPLY PERFECT!

Room Tip: Almost every room will gift you with a nice piece of the ocean - ask for a higher floor if you are o...
