The main reason we return to this resort is because of the staff. They are friendly, informative and often go beyond the call of duty to accommodate us. Special mention goes to Manuel Palma, Roberto Martinez, David Gonzales, Salvador Galvan, Luis Hernandez, Jose H.

What a great little resort!!! We travelled to Puerto Vallarta, which we love! A great, safe city! I wanted a resort that was all inclusive, close enough that we could walk to the Malecon.

We try to stay at this resort when we are in Puerta Vallarta as it is away from tourists that like the old town nightclub area.
