I've been looking at ideas for a place to spend a Wednesday while our cruise ship is in Puerto Vallarta. My friend and I are in our 40s and we're looking for a resort with a swim up bar where we can drink a little too much for the day and have a good time. We'd like to avoid a place with too many kids (adult pool would be ideal), because we are looking for adult fun. Not looking for a place where the vibe is quiet - want for more of a social / party atmosphere. A place where you can play volleyball or water volleyball would be nice, too.
Melia: $70USD. Short taxi ride from port. Definitely have a swim up bar, not sure if there are a lot of kids in that pool.
Crown Paradise: Cost unknown (have sent e-mail for info). Can walk from port (as I understand it). Have a adult only pool at north end of resort with a swim up bar - does anyone know what the vibe of this pool is? Is it more of a quiet area or more social?
Golden Crown Paradise: $79USD. Can walk from port (as I understand it). It is an adults-only AI, so no kids. I don't see a swim up bar in any of the pics.
If anyone can add anything or has other ideas, post them here! Many thanks for the help.
