We stayed at this resort during the Xmas week, and that place was still dead quiet even during their peak season! It's good in a way that kids can enjoy the pools almost all by themselves, and no line-up to get food!
The resort is very elegantly decorated and the property is very well kept, very clean and tidy. Lunch only serves snack type of food such as pizzas, burgers, some finger food. You can only eat a-la-carte between 3pm-6:30pm and after 9pm, the buffet takes over in between. Food is quite good, they do a theme meal every night, mexican, italian, asian, etc. another big plus for the food, they have room service!
Not surprisingly as others have pointed out, you do have to sign the bills after each meal, I guess the management wanted to assess the feasibility of their newly introduced all-inclusive concept. Be careful though when signing the bills as they mix up quite frequently, a few times I was given bills with food that we didn't order!
One thing this resort lacks big time is the program activities. There was not much entertainment during the day, only ping-pong, some in-pool exercise and Bingo, and none at night!
The beach is nice and is literally steps from the hotel rooms, but the waters were a bit rough. However, you can walk alongside the beach and you'll get to calmer and shallower part. It's got a nice view of the downtown Puerto Vallarta also from there!
We took the water taxi to go to Puerto Vallarta, big mistake. Cost $20 usd per adult and the ride took about 1 hr on a twin-motored boat! worst yet, upon arrival, we had to transfer to a smaller boat and wade through the shallow water to go ashore, and we had an infant with stroller! I'd rather spend $13 pesos and take the bus there!
Nuevo Vallarta isn't big, it's more like a tourist town, you can ride the free touri-bus that takes you around the town for sightseeing and it drops you at a shopping centre. But Puerto Vallarta is definitely worth visiting!
Overall, we had a very pleasant stay and I'd recommend this resort. For the price we paid at peak season, you can't go wrong with this place! If you like quiet and setback atmosphere, this is the place for you!
