With 433 rooms and a commanding location on the most perfect curve of Banderas Bay, this sprawling resort has plenty of presence. Rooms offer bright splashes of tropical color to punctuate the white and beige. Just steps from the hotel is a sublime beach lined with palm trees and offering all kinds of watersports and activities, from kite boarding to sea turtle release. The bar serves a great range of top-shelf tequilas and The Ohtli Spa is a highlight, offering a slew of treatments inspired by healing techniques and Shamanistic traditions of the Huichol Indians.
In the Area
In season, whale watching on the bay is a must: take a boat trip with a local outfit like Wildlife Connection for up-close encounters with these gentle giants. In the town itself, join an art walk on the famous Malecon boardwalk, with its oceanfront sculptures. Then fill up on Puerto Vallarta’s other claim to fame, its excellent gourmet scene, with world-class restaurants like boho Café des Artistes, overlooking The Malecon, or al fresco La Palapa, in the so-called “Romantic Zone” by Los Muertos Beach, serving jazzed-up local favorites like tortilla soup.
How to Get There
Just back from another great stay. The Puerto Vallarta Marriott is Great getaway hotel with an excellent well trained staff. It’s only 5 minutes from airport. The Infinity Pool is large and offers great views of Puerto Vallarta. It has a nice restaurant variety with consistently great food quality and friendly service. The entire hotel staff are extremely friendly and service oriented. They always greet you and thanked us for our loyalty. The Spa is the best and their massage therapists are amazing. We highly recommend this hotel. This was our sixth visit and cannot wait to return. When we checked out and arrived at airport I realized I left my wedding ring in room safe. I called the hotel, and they sent someone to our room, found ring, called me back with good news and immediately sent someone to airport to hand deliver it with a smile before our flight. What service! Well done. That’s why we are loyal Marriott Platinum members. Thank you for another great stay!
This well apportioned resort was modern, attractive and well located. Being on the beach made access to the ocean very convenient. We never had a problem getting an umbrella or good location. Staff was there to help and provide info on various water activities. The interior of the hotel was becoming, open and breezy - very pleasant. The restaurants on site were all good and reasonable. The Marina was close by and featured many good restaurants like Porta Bello which we recommend. Check in was efficient and the room was good with an ocean view. Also the A/C didn't blow on the bed which we appreciated. My only complaint was that the TV was old and had poor reception.
If your looking for convenient-great location-great weather getaway in December- look into this location.
Great staff- great place to unwind!
Plenty of food choices on site and many beach activities such as paddle boards etc!
We ate there 2x in our stay @ the Marriott. They have two very different presentation, one at your table and the other by menus. An excellent wine selection. The building and the grounds are exceptional. Well worth the visif for food, presentation & environment.
The hotel is located in the marina district, nearby the airport area. It is a beautiful hotel. Well maintained. The hotel staff is excellent and takes pride in their hotel. Ernesto, the hotel ambassador, is their greatest asset. He makes you feel like you are an old friend within minutes. Friendly, warm, knowledgeable. The food at the hotel was very good, with lots of good selections at each of the numerous restaurants. It is the best hotel in the district. Even though the hotel is near the airport take off strip (about a 1/2 mile down the beach), the hotel rooms are very, very quiet. You can barely hear the planes take off. Note they planes do not operate at very early or very late times, so it is never a problem. Rooms are a good size with balcony. The beds are very comfortable. Even has Netflix wired into the large TV. A great, relaxing stay.
