Historical Traveler Reviews Playa Fiesta BeachClub & Hotel Puerto Vallarta
Great small hotel in Puerto Vallarta
We came across Playa Fiesta through a group of friends who had gotten married there. We joined them in a 7 day trip and I can say that it is truly a pleasure to have discovered this small hotel. We have been looking for a small hotel in Mexico where we could go for a long weekend or for a week to relax and enjoy the beach and the pool, and Playa Fiesta certainly met our criteria. The suites are large and have a nice size kitchen and bedroom. The Service was excellent, the staff was friendly, accommodating, and best of all the owner engages the guests and asks their opinion on what to do to improve his wonderful establishment. He managed to organize a very special dinner for us and allowed us to experience Puerta Vallarta in a very personal way. We will certainly be going back.
HEAVEN ON EARTH
Playa Fiesta is simply a giant step ahead of other resorts, hotels, and villas - because it has the best aspects of each. The owner and staff treat you like royalty and after a few short days, I consider them friends. Beyond the personal touch, the amenities and decor are top notch. The food is better than anything we found in the area - including top tier restaurants. The owner has great vision and is constantly improving on what is already a gem. We liked it so much that we decided to have our wedding there. I can't wait to return!
A week of Mexico bliss in a charming, casual, intimate setting.
We got married in Puerto Vallarta on May 8th of this year and rented out all the rooms at Playa Fiesta for our guests. This was our second stay at Playa Fiesta. Both times we had a really great time and definitely plan to return again.
Playa Fiesta has the warmth and charm one would expect of a boutique hotel without the pretension. The staff were incredibly attentive, hospitable and accommodating. We never had to worry about a thing.
The hotel itself was a short cab ride south of town. Every room overlooks Banderas Bay with private balconies, Mexican tile floors, a/c and big firm beds with duvets. Every night and every morning we heard the crashing of the waves on the rocky beach below. We spent most of our days lounging by the beautiful tile pools and would take a break from the sun in the shade of the pool bar or cafe.
At our request, the staff arranged a fishing expedition for the boys while the girls stayed at the hotel and had massages and mani/pedis. A different day they arranged a trip to Yelapa which is only accessible by boat. Anytime we needed restaurant reservations in town for a big party, they would call ahead.
I would highly recommend Playa Fiesta to anyone looking for a more intimate, casual atmosphere....like a home away from home.
Perfect Boutique Hotel for Wedding
Playa Fiesta provided us and our wedding guests the wedding of the century. The food was the best we've had in PV and the ambiance was romantic and fun. Our guests have since told us that it was the most enjoyable wedding they had ever been to. We have been back to Playa Fiesta since and had a very relaxing vacation. As the sound of the surf melted away our stress, the pool , bar, and games provided entertainment. Thanks Playa Fiesta.
Must Be The Most Fun Boutique Hotel In Mexico
My husband and I have stayed at Playa Fiesta Hotel on several occasions and eagerly look forward to our next visit in the fall. Upon each occasion we find wonderful improvements. The suites must be the most spacious and well decorated in Puerto Vallarta!
The hotel is most fortunate to have an excellant chef, the best food that we were able to find, wonderful people at the desk, and a very restful atmosphere provided by Mother Nature-the Ocean.
If you are looking for the typically run "American Hotel" don't stay at Playa Fiesta, you will ruin it for the rest of us who like to stay at a small, quiet, luxurious "Mexican Hotel" while in Mexico.
Excellent place to stay.
Playa Fiesta is one one the most elegant and comfortable hotels I've been to. I just recently stayed there and from the minute I walked in everyone made me feel welcome. I was traveling alone and I was nervous about getting around and exploring but the staff was very helpful. By the time I left I felt as if I were part of the "family". Truly a great place to stay.
Absoloutely the worst run hotel in the world !!!
Absoloutely the worst run hotel in the world !!! One example is we waited to order dinner 35 minutes after sitting down. After 45 minutes we hadnt been served. The owner sat down with some friends 10 feet from us and he got dinner served to him within 15 minutes. We ended up serving our own plates because he hadnt hired enough servers. He sat there the whole time and never got up to help his staff. He ate while his guests waited and served their own meals. The Jacuzzis were dangerous. One had drain suction that almost took off a toe. The others were grounding out and it felt like we were being electrocuted. His response was..."Just dont use the Jacuzzis"... He didnt care !!! He made sexual advances toward guests, He tried to stop guests from bringing their own food and drinks on the property when he advertised kitchens in the rooms, And one guest complained because he sold a 2 bdrm/2 bath suite and when they got there the living room and kitchen had been changed to the restaurant. He still tried to charge the same price, and taxed them on that price. They spent the weekend living next to and practically within the restaurant as their door opened into seating. PLEASE NEVER GO TO THIS HOTEL. HE LITERALLY REFUSED TO MAKE ANY COMPENSATIONS OR ACCOMMODATIONS FOR THE BAD OR DANGEROUS PROBLEMS.
Lovely, intimate boutique getaway
I was a little hesitant about going to Puerta Vallarta-- I thought it might be overly touristy and cheesy. But my boyfriend and I were looking for an inexpensive, quick escape from an unusually rainy Los Angeles winter and Puerta Vallarta was the only destination that worked out schedule-wise. We could not have been happier at the Playa Fiesta: HUGE, beautifully decorated suites with breathtaking views. Just 5 minutes from old town but far enough away to feel secluded. Totally laid-back yet with great customer service. And most importantly-- best shrimp quesadillas EVER. For us, it was perfect but others may take issue with teh following: 1) every room has a beautiful view, but the premises does not front a sandy beach (However, a 2 minute taxi ride will take you a really nice one at the Camino Real resort) 2) The vibe is definitely laid back-- the staff is super helpful and accommodating but its more like visiting very-generous friends than a luxury hotel.
The owner's dogs run around and mingle with the guests and there is still some construction going on by the pool.
Dear Playa Fiesta,
Our first time at Playa Fiesta
We just returned from staying 5 days at the Playa Fiesta. We chose it because of all that it had to offer and the photos. Although it was advertised that they had television (we have two small girls), there was none. The water there is not purified so we brought water in. That being said, we had a wonderful vacation there! The girls did not miss televison, because there was another girl there (she lives there) who was close in age and the children became close and played a great deal. This expirience gave the girls a new expirience about how others live. The staff there was more than accomodating and courteous. They were concerned about and responded to our requests. Our rooms were very comfortable and very quiet except for the beautiful sound of the ocean surf. We were very relaxed. It is nessasary to take a taxi in and back everyday, cost of $3.50 one way, and only a 5 miute ride. We enjoyed our visit very much and hope to return. We thank all the staff for a wonderful relaxing vacation.
