After the Tequila ranch we went into the city but I think the tour guide was on commission at the shopping centre, taking us again to his mates. As it was after 3.15 and Johnny had not had lunch, we found a Burger King for him to have some food and as ...

Flights over were pretty long but we survived the haul, only just for Nat - had the vomit bag ready for her as we touched down in LA!! Two consecutive 12 hour flights are no joke! Highlights of the journey were being upgraded to business class just before we took off from Cape Town to London and seeing the actors Stanley Tucci and Jody the guy from Shameless on our flight. Low lights were being treated like second ...

... came the Mariachi band; we didn`t know this but this area is the birth place of this type of music. Not knowing how humid it was we went to look for distilled water for Ann`s sleep machine.

There was none at the resort, so we checked with the concierge and she got a taxi to go into town and get us some. While we waited we went to the bar for a drink. We got the water, finished our drink, and then went to our room and to bed. We had had a full ...

... of course), as the act had apparently already started. The theme of the night was ancient Mexican dance rituals and celebrations of the Mayan and Aztec cultures. Large, lit torches were being lobbed across the stage from performer to performer, Aztec warriors were zip-lining from the trees onto the stage, and dancers acrobatically tumbled down the pyramid backdrop. I learned that the pyramid was designed to be a replica of the Templo Mayor, an ancient Aztec temple ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Casa Velas Puerto Vallarta

    Nice, beautiful, upscale property

    from

    We stayed here for 5 nights at the end of January and had a wonderful experience. We also did extensive research before our trip and didn't really have any surprises. Yes, the beds are a bit hard but as a lot of people have also reported, the pools are immaculate, the beach club is first class, the service, restaurants and food is/are top notch. We never had to wait over 5 minutes for a ride to the beach club (either way). As for kids being allowed... there were small children at the beach club during our visits. Maybe that changes during peak season???

    Lived up to reviews and more.

    from

    Having never been to Puerto Vallarta, I exhaustively researched and read reviews -- the Quinta Real was more than I expected. It was a wonderful place, excellent food and such a kind and courteous staff.

    The beach club is excellent and the marina is in walking distance (if you want they'll take you there on golf cart). The beds are very hard -- but the hotel, food, and people make up for that small drawback.

    Not for Families with Kids!

    from

    I booked a large suite at the Quinta Real after reading all the glowing reviews here at Trip Advisor. It just goes to show that there's a sucker born every minute and I'm one of them. I was traveling alone with my 2 children (ages 7 and 10). The room was spotlessly clean and large enough to drive an SUV around in, but the decor was so cold and impersonal - white marble, white limestone, white walls, no carpets anywhere.

    The Qunita is OUR new place!!

    from

    We just got back from the Quinta Real and we are already planning our next trip. Everything was excellent. The staff was superb, especially Bruno, Israel and THE BEST concierge, Joy. She planned a whale watching - sailing trip for us and if you have a chance, please check out the Bloodhound (ship) for yourself. She also knew all the restaurants in town and suggested more than a few good ones, in particular, Cilantro's!! We went back twice. Say hello to Oscar for us if you go!

    Discreet and relaxing

    from

    Discreet, beautiful and relaxing.We stayed at this hotel during the week of New Years, the hotel was sold out but you would never know. It was so peaceful and relaxing! The service was wonderful especially the spa staff. We never even made it to the beach club, the pool was so nice and quiet. There were two problems with the resort. One is that the rooms get a lot of hallway noise, the other is (this is very strange) there is no furniture on the terraces. There was a small plunge pool but no chairs to enjoy the balcony. Why?Overall the resort was wonderful.

    EXCELLENT!

    from

    WOW! The Qunita Real was more than I ever expected. Everyone is incredibly kind and very helpful. The hotel is very nice..beds are a bit hard, but that was the only complaint. I was travelling with two friends and we had a great room with a plunge pool (which is a must).

    Gorgeous hotel

    from

    My husband and I stayed at the Quinta Real Christmas of 2002 and loved it. It is a gorgeous hotel and the grounds are immaculate. The staff is unfailingly nice. One morning we were wondering what the weather would be and the staff got on the internet and printed out an internet report of the PV weather for that day in English and had it delivered up to our room within 5 minutes. The hotel is not on the beach, but the beach club is very chic and is on a beautiful, not at all crowded stretch of beach. They will rent bikes to you free of charge and we rode brand new mountain bikes over to the beach club and had a blast just riding around on them throughout the city. The hotel is located in the marina area, which means that you have to take a taxi to get downtown, but the marina area is pretty and there are a lot of good restaurants on the water that are just a short walk from the hotel. It definitely does not feel like you are staying in a tourist trap here - the hotel is actually in a residential area. It is surrounded by beautiful homes and condos. We also had a plunge pool that felt like a bath right outside of our room on our deck. It was perfect to sit in after a long day out in the town. The Quinta also probably has the very best pool in PV. It is enormous and I never saw anyone in the water the entire time we were there. We even had the good fortune of meeting the owner of the hotel.

    Best kept secret of PV

    from

    Initially stayed at the intercontinental, but had to change rooms 3 times in 4 days (insects, fresh oil paint smell, dirty/old bathroom). Lucky for us we found this place. I had stayed at the Four Seasons in AZ a week before our vacation for a work meeting, and this hotel beats it (service, layout, food). Trully an extraordinary location and property. I walked everyday to the nearby driving range and golf course. My family was taken in a golf car to the beach club which is top of line as well. Very nice job keep it up. I will come back many times.

    Perfect for us

    from

    We spent 4 nights at the Quinta Real in Puerto Vallarta and it was just perfect for us. We have two teenage sons who don't live with us, and we wanted someplace where we would have things to do together. We spend our days using the workout facility (beautiful and nice new equipment) and going to the beach club, swimming pool, playing golf, or walking to the marina. If we had had more time we would have loved to do the spa activities, because their spa facilities are so beautiful. We walked to dinner at the marina every night, and loved the choice of restaurants. The Quinta Real was immaculate and did not feel crowded, so people weren't putting a book on every chair to save it all day. If you have a group where some play golf and others don't, this is a good place because the hotel is right on the Marina Vallarta golf course. We did not want an all-inclusive where we had to eat at the same place all the time, or stand in any lines for anything, or where our kids found other kids to hang with all the time. The Quinta Real was EXACTLY what we wanted. The only thing we did not like was the beds are firm, and we like a soft bed. We just had them put extra padding on the mattress. Our room was the Grand Class Suite, with a king bed and sitting room downstairs and two double beds and sitting room upstairs, with a jacuzzi tub and private plunge pool, for $361 per night plus tax. Since we really need two rooms for the four of us, we felt like it was a great deal. I would be happy to answer any questions anyone has about the Quinta Real, we were very impressed with it.

    One of puerto vallarta's best kept secrets

    from

    At first, we were a little hesitant to book a hotel that was not directly on the beach, but we were soon convinced otherwise once we got there. We were definitely well pampered while we were there. The service was outstanding -- friendly staff, extremely accommodating, with the perfect blend of being attentive yet not overbearing. Because it's a small luxury hotel, we were spared the all-too-common annoyances of the high-pressure timeshare sales pitches in the larger Mexican resorts (except during our excursions into town or wandering about the Marina). Our suite had both a jacuzzi and plunge pool which overlooked the golf course. The on site restaurant was delicious, the hotel pool was nice, but our favorite part of the facilities was their beach club, which was still virtually brand new, and was much more luxurious as well as private than at the other marina hotels. We would definately go back.
