When selecting Costa Sur we were hopeful that we would be staying at a facility depicting typical Mexico, but as it had been 20+ years since we had visited Puerto Vallarta, we expected some change.
We were very happy to find that Costa Sur has retained its integrity in representing Mexico. It is difficult to be brief when summarizing our experience at Costa Sur as each facet is due an excellent rating.
To begin with, every unit is oceanfront affording an excellent view with the patio size in relation to the type of unit. We spent one week in a one-bedroom unit (south tower) and our second week in a studio (north tower); both of which had a complete kitchenette. The furnishings are typically Mexican: bright and comfortable, in working order and very clean. Having a safe in each unit is a plus.
In-between the two towers are the two pools, the spa, gym, snack bar, pool bar, library area, sunset deck and dining room. All public areas are well staffed, well maintained and very clean. The staff was attentive and polite.
The food was excellent in taste and presentation and each day of the week featured a specialty dinner buffet. Having the all-inclusive plan as a daily option and being able to charge meals to your account allowed individual freedom of choice as well as the opportunity to experience the many other restaurants available in Old Town. Also, the on-site mini-mart offered basic food/beverage items for light in-room snacks as well as a selection of vacation items.
The location was perfect as our preference is to be away from the highly populated downtown area; yet downtown was available to us by using either the public bus system, or readily available taxis.
Overall, we were very pleased with Costa Sur and will not hesitate to spend future vacations here. We will also recommend Costa Sur to our family and friends who enjoy Mexico as much as we do. Mucho Gracias Costa Sur!
