Our daughter found this resort searching for the perfect place for her wedding. 80 of us gathered for a week and it was really extraordinary. The one downside of the travel form Puerto Vallarta is quickly forgotten when you are greeted with a fresh cloth and refreshing drink at the car. The rooms are spectacular, ours had a pool on...

Our visit to El Careyes last year was a wonderful one- The resort was a gem! The only part that I might have changed about the trip however would be the airport to choose as there is a huge difference in the driving distance. I would insist on flying to the Manzillo international airport rather Puerto Vallarta. The driving time... More

El Careyes has some of the most flexible staff that my wife and I have ever experienced. Despite that their menu of food and excursions/activities is not long nor detailed, any of these experiences can be completely customized to meet your needs at a very minimal cost. The rooms are cozy, nothing to write home about, but the ocean front... More

Charming! My hubby and I just returned from El Careyes Hotel in Costa Allegre, Mexico, for a 4 day anniversary celebration. The hotel is very romantic and small - just the way we like it. Our room was spacious and quaint with nice touches like chocolates in a jar, fresh fruit, colorful paint, local handpainted art, soft slippers and robes.... More

This hotel, located a couple of hours south of Pueto Vallarta, was managed previously by Starwood hotels but they left when the hotel was going to be sold (although I saw that it is still part of the Mexico Boutique Hotels group). The deal fell through so the hotel is still owned by the original owners and managed by them... More

This was the third summer my wife and I got away for a break at El Careyes. We love this place. Due to the uncertainty of the resort closing for renovation the occupancy was very low, but the resort was fully staffed and service and food were great. We think the food was better than our past visits. The drive... More

So many things went wrong. The resort was beautiful at first glance, but a closer look revealed many things wrong that you just don't expect from a resort like that. They had no internet access, no locks for the doors, bugs all over our room, bathroom is small with no door, the jacuzzi didn't work, and the resort overall could... More
