"Nice hotel with great ocean view from room balcony"
Stayed the week of May 9th, 2016 (during off-season). Room had very comfortable bed and pillows with an ocean view from the balcony. Room was clean but housekeeping kept forgetting to leave us washcloths. Had to wait 4 hours for them to be delivered. The TV in our room never worked right. We complained about it every day and it was never fixed. Was pushed really hard to join their timeshare lecture. Had a number of conventions that arrived and the staff catered to them. This resulted in very poor service from the bars to the restaurants. We normally tip fairly heavy but didn't this time as that is how bad the service was. The pools are nice but lounge chairs were uncomfortable. You could get a nice pillowed cabana but they cost $25 per day which didn't think was right. Rocky beach and no umbrellas by chairs on the beach. First time at an adults-only resort but will never do that again. I would rather put up with screaming kids than drunk adults that act like kids. This was our 8th time to PV and probably won't stay here again.
Stayed with friends who have time share units here. We waited until a few weeks prior to leaving and ended up with a 1 bedroom suite with a large balcony for about what thety pay in annual maintenance fees for a studio unit. Great views of Banderas Bay, nice pool area, very friendly and helpful staff.
This is a perfect hotel for a relaxing trip with spouse, friends or family. There are several swimming pools and hot tubs, so everyone should be able to find at least one that fits their needs, nice bars and restaurants, friendly staff, and comfortable rooms. The hotel is secluded with its own beach. All-inclusive means a more relaxed stay.
Comfort and beauty, clean, well maintained and kept. Staff gracious, helpful, polite!!
Minimal problem is being away from the beach, shuttle service was okay..Need to call 40 minutes in
advance and last shuttle to leave hotel was 2:30 pm, last for pick up in town was 7:30. Service was reliable, but hard
to come and go, walk to town, etc. Other than that it was a wonderful "get away" and the views
beautiful, our last meal at La Mar was the best!!!!Definitely would go back.
Pros: Large, comfortable, clean rooms
Large balconies with beautiful views
Steps away from a great private beach
Quiet and quaint
20 minute walk to old town
Good restaurant on site
Cons: Pool area was very small and did not get much sun at all
Stairs. There are 6 floors and no elevators. This can be a challenge. Would definitely not recommend for those with mobility issues.
Pocket Guide: Puerto Vallarta Conchas Chinas Hotels
Known as the Beverly Hills of Puerto Vallarta, Conchas Chinas is a rich residential area filled with new, multimillion condos and grand, old villas. This locale’s name translates to “Chinese seashells.” Shell hunters comb the beach for prize finds; the beach was created over time by broken shells washed smooth by the tide. Calm, clear waters and natural coves make for safe swimming and snorkeling.
