February 2017...took my family, four adults and two children ages 3 and 7. Stayed in sky suite D. Everything was perfect from arrival at airport to our leaving six days later. Every request made through Daniel, Vallarta Shores Manager, was handled perfectly. The sky suite exceeded our expectations. Our chef, Irving, was wonderful. He went above board providing real Mexican...

We have stayed in almost all of the different suites in this hotel. We are never disappointed with the staff, the view, the rooms, and the overall atmosphere. In a penthouse you get a chef and we always request Rodrigo. He makes us feel right at home, he accommodates all of the different likes folks have. We have had as...

This was my first visit to Vallarta shores. Hotel is very lovely place to stay. Great in suite pool, right on beach and walking distance to almost anything. What made this hotel stand out from the rest was the outstanding hospitality that Rodrigo offers! Not only is he an amazing chef, he is an outstanding host. Next time I return...

After our last visit, we tried it again at Daniel's urging that the music volume from Mantamar next door was unusual due to Bear week but otherwise due to their efforts with city hall -- the music volume is normally under control. The room was wonderful, location is ideal and very tranquil at night however, the music volume from Mantamar...

Thank you for submitting your review. Almar has not been working for the last year, so there has been no Jack hammer noise at all for the last year. The music from Mantamar is sometimes inconsistent, most of the time it is at a very moderate level. When they go higher, we ask them to keep it to its acceptable...

The place is very clean and well maintained, the staff are very helpful in general. However, the swimming pool is very small and the beach is not really private and in a pretty crowded area. The location is pretty central, but the hotel itself doesn't have a restaurant or a bar. We spent most of our time taking boat trips...

Daniel G, Gerente at Vallarta Shores, responded to this review

Thank you for submitting your review. We are glad that you liked your room and the staff service. The common heated swimming pool is indeed small, but only to be shared by 8 Suites, which means it is usually empty (most people prefer to go to the beach). There are no private beaches in Mexico (you can't buy beach land)...
