This hotel is an all-suites property located about 10-15 minutes south of Puerto Vallarta's Romantic Zone. It hosts a very small beach and there are a variety of beach palapa-style restaurants to choose from besides the property's restaurants, but nothing else really within walking distance. It's also located on the main highway, which is unsafe for walking on.
The property will appeal to those who enjoy spending much of their vacation in their hotel and like all-inclusive properties. You can easily get to the local zoo and visit the movie set of Night of the Iguana (well, what you can reach of it since it's been closed for a while), both nearby. If you plan on spending much time in Puerto Vallarta and didn't rent a car, you will find yourself paying for some very expensive taxi rides back and forth. You can catch the bus on the highway, which is a much more affordable transportation option but may not be passing by when you want to go into town.
Like most all-inclusive resorts, there is loud music playing through most of the day and well into the night as well as loud variety shows in the evening. This is a family resort so expect lots of children in the pools unless you're visiting during the off-season.
