My wife and I added a couple of nights up here as part of our 2-weeks exploring Puerto Vallarta. We have traveled throughout Mexico for decades and, be warned, Chacala is still old beach town Mexico. The list of things to do is short: beach, simple meals and take in the natural beauty from a hammock.
Likewise, Mar de Jade is beautifully simple. The complex has slowly grown around their yoga wellness center and more rooms are currently being added. We found this place very relaxing, especially a great hour long message.
Disappointed in the repeatative food choices (mostly fresh verges), begging dogs and cats (my wife is very allergic to cat dander), and overall value (not worth the $300+ per night we paid). We'd return to this beautiful beach hotel (it's no resort) if available for <$200/night.
