Very nice staff burdened with an awful resort

johnbV4859DP (Fort Worth, Texas) on May 30, 2021

I am surprised by the positive reviews for this property. I stayed here for one night after an overnight flight delay and was scared at the prospect of having to stay here for an extended vacation. The room had a strong, dank smell and was sparsely furnished. I tried the beachside buffet for dinner and left after three bites of what appeared to be the least objectionable items. If you do find yourself stuck here, I highly recommend the food truck park right across the street. It was a nice escape from this property. The only positive experiences I had here were with the very nice check-in staff and the friendly bartenders (that were burdened with some of the cheapest drink options to serve). Don't stay here.

Stay Away

davidsaucedo on May 29, 2021

I purchased my Stay for 5 night this May based on the beautiful pictures that they show of their property. This company owns three hotels each adjacent to one another. Upon arriving, they informed that they were giving me an”upgrade” to a better room at no charge to their other tower. It turns out they were moving me to Hotel Mío, which is to the East of this property and does not have an ocean view which I had paid for. I immediately objected and I insisted they give me the room which I reserved with ocean view. They proceeded to show me my room which was an absolute disaster. Old stained and broken furniture, walls that needed painting and an overall dilapidated condition of the entire facility. I know it was not the employees fault as they are just doing what they are told. But the pictures that you see do not tell the horrendous condition of this hotel. After telling the lady how disappointed I was she implored that I take the suite they were offering me at Hotel Mio which I did because I had no more options for the day and I did not want to sleep on the street with all of my luggage. I checked the Price at Hotel Mio on Expedia and my room was $64.00 per night compared to the $160 per night which I had paid. I called Expedia and I cancelled the rest of my stay after that night and I made a separate reservation for Hotel Mio and I spent the rest of my vacation there. The one night that I did spend there I tried the buffet and honestly all of the food was extremely salty and of very low quality. The rest of my stay I ate out. Overall PV was very delightful and I do love the city, people, and especially the cuisine. But unless Friendly Vallarta goes through a complete remodel I would only caution people to stay away.
