“For relaxing, quiet luxury....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

We stayed here just one night while our villa was rental was being prepped. The location, being a very short walking distance from the marina, was great. The rooms at the resort are spacious, typical of Marriott. Even the garden view rooms provided a nice gaze out of the sliding glass doors. The grounds were photo-shoot worthy- well manicured lawns with statues. The exercise room was well equipped. I was unaware that there was an all inclusive option available- but If was to stay for 3 nights or more it would be a definite must. Even with out it, we were well fed, and not over priced. In fact, I was surprised by the modest pricing.

This is an excellent spot for a corporate group, or a large family, or a traveler that wants peaceful luxury, but will seek entertainment of premises.

Our stay here for was just one night as we had to fly into PVR earlier than planned. This hotel is conveniently close to the airport and the marina is a short taxi ride away.

The check-in was quick and we were welcomed as Marriott Rewards members.

The bar consisted of a good variety of "top shelf" brands.

The maintenance of the common areas was beautiful. We even saw touch ups being completed during our short stay.

The room was a lot larger than your standard Marriott room in the US or Canada.

The food in the restaurant and room service were definitely up to Marriott standards and was comparable in cost to the prices at home in the hotel.

This is a great choice for families used to the Marriott brand but would love to be by the beach.

The only thing that made me uncomfortable was the family in the pool wearing their underwear. They may have been on a day pass. Not 100%. Other than that, I would recommend this location for those not looking for the all-inclusive experience.

Room Tip: The garden rooms are a great choice is you like the privacy on your balcony.

I was traveling with a group of nine friends and family (all within the ages of 27-32), and we were staying in a private house in El Centro (the beautiful Casa de la Torres), but we were all eager for a spa day after days of zip lining, beach fun, and (lots of) drinking. I had visited the Ohtli Spa the year before with my boyfriend for a couples massage, and the experience was fantastic and the spa itself is incredible, so I reached out to the spa director, Paty Quintana, about what could be done for a group our size.

Everything, apparently. We did go in May, which is a bit off-season, but they did everything but roll out a red carpet for us. Paty helped us buy (discounted, I believe) day passes to the resort so we could all lounge poolside before our treatments (they reserved a spot for all of us that overlooked the beach); the food and drinks were great. About a half hour before our treatments, we went to the spa itself, which is sex segregated (i.e., who needs clothes?). The spa lounge area--an hour service grants you all-day access--is remarkable. And big. Several showers, a steam room, a dry sauna, three small pools (cold, hot, and jacuzzi), and a lounge area with water, snacks, and tea await you. The four other guys I was with were the only people there (probably not as popular among men), and we made sure to try absolutely every part of this. Staff is always available but the experience is still very private-seeming. I got a massage, which was just as good as I remembered, but others received facials and pedicures and raved about those, as well. But the lounge amenities may be the best part. Because this is a resort, the price is a bit more expensive than all the smaller spas you'd find throughout downtown PV, but the overall experience is definitely worth it.

Really, though, any opportunity you have to work with Paty you should take--she couldn't have made our day any more relaxing or special, and only had about two days advanced notice (though I would try to give her more time if you're going in the busy season). Such a wonderful experience--can't wait to go back!

I expected glitches considering we were visiting at the height of the Spring season. The only glitch we had was the obnoxious American at the lobby bar! Our room was cleaned everyday with turn down service. We had a beautiful view of the ocean. The breeze in the afternoon came up and kept us cool while we sipped a local drink. We ate in each restaurant except the Japanese Steak house. The food was excellent. Breakfast was the best too. There were several ponds near the lobby area that seemed to be undergoing repainting but other than wondering where the turtles went, I wasn't bothered.
Check in was prepared for us and got us upstairs quickly. We were on the beach in no time. Yes, it's Puerto Vallarta so you do have to put up with the hawkers but a simple no does the trick. There really are very "bargains" to be found in the area at this time of year, so I chose to do my shopping in town along the boardwalk.
The pool area was excellent! I had expressed concern to the manager about previous Trip Advisor complaints involving "saving chairs." The manager assured me it was not a problem. Yes, it was a problem. I finally got to the point that I sat wherever I wanted and just moved their towels. No one said a word to us.
My experience with the resort and with Puerto Vallarta in general was that the local people work very hard. They take pride in their jobs. They seem to know that money from tourists is critical to their welfare. And you should hear the locals gabbing when TWO Princess ships pull into port!
Put aside some extra money and treat yourself to a day at the Ohtli Spa. Beautiful. Full menu. Expensive. Peaceful. Worth every penny.
My hat is off to the entire staff of the Casa Magna for a wonderful stay. Thank you. We will be back. My husband has promised me that. And it was his first trip to Mexico with lots of trepidation! Not any longer. He loved it! Now, if there was just something that we could do about obnoxious American tourists who drink too much and get way to mouthy.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a view!

we stayed at the Marriott casa magna from may 15th until may 25th this is not the first time we have stayed here it is a wonderful place to stay, everyone is so helpful from Simon making sure we got a great room and Raul making sure all our needs were taken care of by the pool and the great service at the breakfast buffet I can not think of one thing that I would have changed. I also noticed that when we come back we see a lot of familiar faces by the pool I guess we are not the only people that love this place we are already planning our return trip .

Beautiful grounds and views. On our first day there we noticed that the toilet in the room would not fill w water once flushed. Called the desk and they assured us it would be taken care of. Well, 3 days later and 2 calls and it was not fixed. Its sad to pay the money we did and still have to fill the garbage can w water to be able to flush the toilet
