In my opinion, the staff is always the most important aspect of a resort and having an excellent staff can turn a 2 star resort into a 5 star. In this case, it was not necessary as the hotel and staff were excellent. I had read complaints about construction noise which I did not hear from my room during my entire stay. The servers at the Sky restaurant were great especially Alejandro and Antonio who went out of their way to make me comfortable. I have limited mobility and walk with a cane so the extra attention was a plus for me. The food was good, but have more of a variety would be a plus. While having access to the Mantamar Beach club is a plus, it would have been nice if the Almay had it's own pool for individuals like myself who had trouble climbing the stairs to the Beach Club. Additionally, I would have like to take advantage of the services of the Spa, but unfortunately there was no access to the Spa other than a winding staircase. This was a bit disappointing. However I still would rate this resort a 4 plus even with the lack of access for people such as myself with limited mobility.

The Only reason I Booked this property was its proximity to the beach and the Title of BEACH FRONT EXPERIENCE. I not only did I booked 8 months in advance, I called the property and they told me all rooms were indeed beachfront. I got a room facing another property and a construction site. I told the front desk staff about the issue. The service staff were excellent. Management did not respond correctly and put the blame on Travelocity. My time in Puerto Vallarta for the last 35 years has been wonderful, this time around because of FALSE ADVERTISEMENT and the support of Travelocity I shall never return.

I love the way this hotel and staff caters to the LGBT guests. The rooms are spacious and clean. Even the rooms with "partial ocean veiw" have a good veiw. If there is a down side, it would be many stairs with no railing down to the pool and beach, its not bad just a minor inconvenience otherwise i really like this hotel and staff. The other olus is the on site hotel Consierge

We liked the room, cleanliness, and location. We did not like the constant pressure to sit through a presentation to buy into the resort.
