We stayed at a campground right off the beach in Sayulita Mexico. It was a beautiful site, except for the biker rally on the beach beside us. They were fine actually and the band wasn't bad to listen to. The roar of their bikes was a tad annoying.
Sayulita is a nice little town, with lots of tourism in the high season.
We wondered around, had supper on the street at a ...

Jaguar are still prevalent, though we didn't have the pleasure of seeing one. However, we did stop at one of the tequila distilleries for a taste and tour.

Historical Traveler Reviews Blue Chairs Resort By The Sea Puerto Vallarta
My boyfriend and I stayed at Blue Chairs on our first gay vacation. I must say after reading the other reviews from the people who gave it low marks must be rich needy queens. Listen up , you are going to Mexico! You are not going to the Ritz Carlton Palm Beach! It is the only gay beachfront resort in PV and maybe the world! If you want 5 STAR stay at one of the straight uptight establishments. The staff were great, the views were great, the location was great. I will speak highly of this resort to anyone wanting to travel to Vallarta and get the full comfortable gay vacation experience. Man just thinking of it makes me want to be there now. See you there!!!!! P.S. only saw my room which was #301 a jr suite with the best view of the bay in my opinion. So i cannot comment on the other rooms but as far as house keeping and the staff im sure all the rooms are great.
This was our 3rd trip to Vallarta. The hotel is owned by 2 guys from Georgia and you can tell they have put their heart and soul into this place. Blue Chairs went from a dump in 2000 to a great property since they took over in 2001. They continue to upgrade the hotel. No doubt it will go 5 star in 2006. The hotel has a lot of things going on and it is all in keeping the gay and lesbian product in mind. "This is no bath house" as Greg, one of the owners, told me. "Gay people deserve a place to go ON THE BEACH, not in some alley where people will not see us." They incorporate the idea of "Us" into the operation. It is not perfect but it is getting there very fast. The staff there is unreal. They have over 60 employees Greg told us. Most have them have been there from the start so that says something about the guys as employers. We also stayed at an expensive gay villa, WAY overpriced considering it takes 15 minutes to get to the beach by taxi. We stayed at another gay property close by, cheap, and well, you get what you pay for. Blue Chairs had great rates and you are on the beach.
My partner and I just stayed at Blue Chairs for 6 days, 5 nights. It was our first time to Mexico. As previous reviews have mentioned, the location is superb, right on the gay beach. However, the hotel itself is nothing to write home about. We stayed in an ocean front room with a king bed on the 5th floor. It was a very small room with absolutely no frills. While the furniture was authentic Mexican, it was old and not in the best shape. The mattress, while okay for a hotel bed, was NOT a memory foam mattress as Blue Chairs' website suggests. It's simple a foam mattress topper to cover up an old mattress. The biggest problem I had was with the sheets and towels. The bed sheets were changed every day, yet every set had numerous holes and stains. The towels were the same way. The maid service did a good job and were very friendly (remember to tip them). However, they only leave two bath towels a day and that's it. Likewise, you must use this strange laminated card to exchange beach towels everyday, which also are in bad shape.
My boyfriend and I stayed in Blue Chairs from July 1 - 6, 2005. The hotel is located in a great location in front of the gay beach in Playa de los Muertos.
I stayed at the Blue Chairs hotel in November mainly because of the location and based on good word of mouth. Since I was traveling alone, I wanted to stay somewhere centrally located to the gay beach and clubs. The Blue chairs could not be in a better location. The gay beach is right in front of the hotel and you can sit in the chair under the umbrellas all day for free. Drinks and food can be ordered and signed to your room very conveniently. As for the gay clubs, they are mostly within a few blocks of the hotel. Very easy and safe to walk to and back late at night. The hotel also features a roof top restaurant with a very popular happy hour. The rooms are comfortable but basic. I had a room with a kitchenette which is a nice option. The beds were comfortable and the rooms are a decent size.
It was my first trip to Puerto Vallarta and my first stay at The Blue Chairs Hotel in January 2005. As mentioned in a previous review, this is not a 5 star property and it probably ranks as a 3 star property. Besides the rating The Blue Chairs Hotel has some amazing things going for it that should count additional consideration.
The Blue Chairs is considered the premiere gay resort in Puerto Vallarta, and there are some good reasons for that. The location on the Playa Los Muertos beach couldn't be better, and it's great fun to sit out in one of the blue (of course) beach chairs and sip a margarita and gaze at the bay. The rooftop bar is especially lively at sunset, and, although there was a little too much drag entertainment for our tastes, it'a fun place to hang out before dinner. We particularly enjoyed the Gay Bingo Night and the Movie Night. The staff at the Blue Chairs is exceptionally attentive and friendly and very helpful for newcomers to Puerto Vallarta especially. Susan the beach hostess is just one of the winning personalities you'll encounter. All this is strongly on the plus side.
Just spent seven nights at Blue Chairs in February ('04) and already I am planning my return for next year. It is the best value I have ever had for a beachfront hotel. They have an excellent deal for airport/hotel transfers. I was met immediately on arrival and was whisked away to the resort and checked in to my room w/in one hour. The staff was friendly and helpful at all times and displayed a genuine enthusiam. The hotel is five stories with a rooftop pool, restaurant and bar with nightly entertainment. The food was consistently good, the drinks reasonably priced and the Sunday Brunch wonderful - compete with live music and expansive views of Banderas Bay from underneath a shaded table. The rooms were clean and simply furnished with just the basics.
Blue Chairs Resort
I got a great deal on a beach front junior suite at Blue Chairs. The hotel is at Playa de los Muertos...the southern (and my favorite) side of town. The hotel is clean and has GREAT beach access, a pool and bar on the top floor, palapa restaurant on the beach. It's not a "5 star" propertyy, but, my room was clean, it's an excellent location and best of all, this hotel has the FRIENDLIEST and most helpful staff. Thanks for a delightful stay!
