My wife and I stayed in the Grande Luxxe tower 2 from September 3rd--the 10th. This place is top notch, everything in the room was 1st class. As everyone knows, they are doing construction. It wasn't a factor at all. Yes it was noisy, but all you had to do was take a short walk or shuttle drive to the Grand Mayan and all that went away. We spent almost everyday at the Grand Mayan pool, it was GREAT! We are going back next year to the Grand Mayan and staying in the Grand Mayan only because it will be another couple of years before they get the GRande Luxxe project ready. EVerything you need is at the GRand Mayan. The restaurants are ok there at the GRande Luxxe. The Epazote restaurant was a little too fancy for me as was the Punto Arena restaurant down on the beach. If you like foo foo restaurants those are the ones to go too. We ordered room service and they had the best cheeseburgers and chicken nachos. I could go on forever about this place, it was the best vacation I have ever taken. The airport is close by, Wal-MArt is even closer. IF you go, the best place to eat in Nuevo Vallarta is Fajita Republic!!! It's only 5 minutes or so away and the price is good along with the food. If you are a golfer, bring your own balls!! They charge the crap out of you. 50 bucks for club rental and 3-5 bucks a ball! You better take some cash with you because you will be expected to tip your caddie while you are there. The course is really nice though!
AS far as shopping goes, we had a GREAT experience in Bacerias! It's only 15-20 minutes away. It is exactly what I thought a little Mexican town would look like. Stone roads and little restaurants to eat at in the town. They had a flea market, which the prices are really cheap, a whole lot better than going downtown Puerto Vallarta. I would definitely recommend going there if in Nuevo. If you go, I hope you have a GReat time. We sure did!!
