    I needed time away from my home in the US during these hard times. Used 2 weeks of TimeShare in this fun waterfront resort. Was clean and exciting. The kind TimeShare gentleman Serafin gave me a nice spacious upstairs, 1 bedroom, 2 baths apartment with a nice balcony overlooking the pool and beach. Although the furniture is a bit dated, it was big, clean, and had everything I needed for my 2 week stay. Masks were required throughout the premises. Hand sanitizer stations everywhere around the resort. All staff members wore masks, and some also wore face shields. Upon entering the resort, security checked temps. Each guest must stand on sanitizer mat and enter through an Ozone Clean room first. Made me feel pretty clean! Restaurant staff are friendly. Food was very good and had a variety of selections. The red wine, from Spain, was excellent, and I had a lot of every night at the dinner buffet. The 8:30 pm show was absolutely fantastic! Changed every evening. Was even better than many of my cruise ship nightly shows. Cristian, the star of the show, was my favorite! The pool is huge and had daily activities. The beach is fantastic, despite the small rocks. The gym required reservations, and only allowed no more than 2 guests at a time. I used it 6 times during my stay and enjoyed it!. Just outside the resort, many stores and restaurants were open. Overall, I highly recommend this resort. Again, thanks to Serafin for his kind hospitality!

    Went here on a last minute holiday - on first arrival we were given a room on the ground floor right by the air con generator things and with no terrace area/balcony it just stepped straight down onto the grass, reception were helpful eventually and we were moved upstairs. The rooms are clean and spacious but a little outdated if anything. All in all though Canto del sol is a fabulous hotel, the a la carte restaurants are all amazing and there are plenty of sun loungers around the main pool. A lot of the time they do have to clear the ones near the beach to set up for the evening but usually you can still find somewhere to go. The staff were all friendly and was such a great atmosphere, the food was great and a lot of variety. Would definitely go back here as even though not as finely polished as other hotels the atmosphere and entertainment could not be faulted!

    Horrible!

    It seems they combined the hotel across which was once villas Vallarta with Canto del Sol. It was extremely packed at all times and messy. The staff tried hard to keep it clean but the kids were out of control. I stayed last year and it was nothing like this. The pool was just so full you could not move much. If they wanted to combine the hotel they should expand the facilities first. We had to wait in line for breakfast this morning. I am very disappointed as I was given the choice to pay more to stay at canto del sol instead of villas and this is why I paid more. Then to find out it was pointless as everyone was thrown in the same hotel anyway is beyond frustrating. Lines and absolutely no seats at the pool. Will add photos within next two days.

    Best hotel !!!

    We visited there in February for two weeks. One of the best hotels I ever stayed at. Very clean/food was awesome. The bad part Rocky Beach. Didn’t matter much because we were on the go all the time seeing the sights. But definitely go back to that hotel . Staff were very friendly. Another downfall is it’s hard to get an ocean view room even though I had apartment two bedrooms two baths very very nice.

    Good time.
