“Nice, Tranquil Hotel”
Reviewed 18 August 2008

This was definitely an older hotel, very different from the large resorts in nearby towns. Our family, including two young children, loved this hotel for its tranquil atmosphere and excellent food. The room was hot and needed some new AC units. There were ants in the living room that had a pretty mean bite, but it was bearable. I would stay here again, but not in July.

There were 13 of us that stayed in 2 of the 2 bedroom suites. They both had wonderful views of the pool and the ocean. It was wonderful to wake up in the morning and hear the waves crashing on the beach. The unit was good-sized, plenty of room to spread out. The living room area was a little awkward. The tv is mounted on the wall in the corner, which made watching it uncomfortable. There is a chair, and two "couches" that were actually cement slabs with cushions on them. One was against one wall, and the other against the other wall. Off the living room/dining room area is a balcony. There are chairs and a little table out there to sit and watch the ocean. The unit we were in was blocked just enough from the opposite side of the building so that we couldn't see the sunrise. But the second unit of our group stuck out a little further and had an awesome view. One bedroom had twin beds in it. The other had a king size bed, which was kind of uncomfortable because it was a mattress on top of a cement slab. There were 3 bathroom/shower areas: one off the main bedroom, one in the hall between the bedrooms, and one off the kitchen in the janitorial room (it has a big slop sink, mops and things in it, and one other "couch" someone could sleep on). The toilets didn't seem to flush very easily... had to hold the handle down to make sure if would fully flush. The showers were pretty decent.
The kitchen was small, but functional. We didn't really use it for anything, other than to put things in the fridge or use the microwave.
There is an a/c unit in each bedroom and the living room. They worked fine, sometimes too fine because we had to turn them down or off!!
The pool was nice. There weren't too many people when we were there. There is a great little side pool for kids that's not very deep, but the kids had a blast in it. The vendors can come up the stairs, but are not allowed in the pool area, so if you want to buy anything from them, you have to go to them. You can swim up to and sit at the bar in the pool. The bartender was very nice. They have a good menu. The food was good. If you go down the stairs to the beach area, it's cleaned up nice because they rake it every morning. And because of the location, you can't watch the sun set into the ocean (the mountains are in the way).
Overall, it was a decent place to stay. Needs a little updating, but it's ok, really. We weren't really in the room that much, anyways.

  • Liked — View.. right on the ocean
  • Disliked — No elevators... had to carry our luggage up to 3rd floor

We where looking for a cultural vacation and found it ! We spent 1 week in Bucerias at the Vista Vallarta All Suites on the beach of Banderas Bay 15 km north of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. We are married in our late 40's. The staff spoke english and treated us gringos very kindly. The 60's style minimalist middle class mexican suites were clean, roomy, rustic, dark, worn out and tired. The beds were like bricks, bring your space foam "Litteraly". Each room faced the amphiteather like, palapa style pool bar/ restaurant and of course the rather large people filled pool. The wonderful Mexican families where kind and gracious. The younger groups at the pool where rather loud and noisey until about 1 am every night. The beach was busy with "PV" style aggresive local sales people. The surf was dirty and the beach smelled of rotting fish. Transportation by taxi, bus or hoof (your own feet) was pretty good. We think it is a cultural experience for a family with small children to vacation like a local.

  • Liked — The large space the room provided
  • Disliked — Beds like bricks, Very dated, Dark, Furniture was foam on cement.
