We stayed at the Palladium Vallarta Resort & Spa in the Riviera Nayarit (just north of Puerto Vallarta about 30-40 min) for our 5th time in early April 2009. We always have a great time here.
The beach is nice as you are not hounded to buy stuff constantly (vendors have an area they can set up so you can go to them, but occasionally someone will come around). It is on a great boogie boarding and surfing beach, but when I've been there (January and April) the water is a little rough a good portion of the time for snorkeling (however there are plenty of manta rays and blowfish to see if you do).
Many of the rooms are being updated; however we stayed in one that hadn't been yet. We did, however, visit an updated room and it is very nice (however more contemporary than the old rooms that had a more Mexican feel).
Service was fabulous, food was really good for an all-inclusive (especially the al a carte restaurants). As usual we recommend visiting this resort.
Also we recommend visiting a great family owned Mexican restaurant in Punta de Mita called Margarita's...it is fabulous...best food we have had in Mexico! You can either take a 10 min bus ride there from this resort for 10 pesos each way or a cab or 100 pesos each way.
Enjoy your stay if you choose this resort...we always do!
