As far as all inclusive resorts go in Mexico this is pretty solid but it's stunning location in a natural cove, creating a private beach, with the backdrop of jungle covered mountains makes it an excellent choice for a break.
The positives; the beach - which is a nursery for manta rays that swim around you, the weather (of course), proximity to Puerta Vallarta, the ability to relax! Whilst we didn't need the services, the entertainment staff and kids club appeared well organized with lots to do.We stayed in the old building but paid extra of a balcony which was a smart move as we got he top floor and some amazing views. The old tower was absolutely fine, no complaints.
The negatives; I'm nitpicking but the food looks good but is normally fairly bland and uninspiring. The fish isn't fresh and I had to pick plastic wrap off my salmon one night. The seaside grill restaurant is outdoors with no AC or fans and with the high humidity i found it pretty unbearable. The Mexican restaurant was our favorite as it had the most flavorsome menu. The service is very inconsistent ranging from overbearing to none existent. I also didn't like the timeshare "sneak attack" when we checked in. They took no for an answer but the lady was introduced to us under the guise of "someone who will show to to your room" until we were taken to a quiet spot for the sales pitch.
The negatives are just a heads up and they by no way spoilt what was an excellent vacation to a very good resort destination.
