Vamar Vallarta All Inclusive Marina and Beach Resort
Travel Blogs from Puerto Vallarta
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.

Well, we love grocery stores, and try to get to one in every port. We bought packages of dried peppers, and a Chilean wine. (The wine was a Cabernet, called 120. Very good).
After that, we took a cab to Old Town, where we checked out a couple of hotels that looked interesting. Maybe one day in the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Vamar Vallarta All Inclusive Marina and Beach Resort Puerto Vallarta
We (two adults, no kids) recently returned from a two-week stay at the Embarcadero. It's the third time we have stayed there. If you want perfect (or close to) stay at a five-star resort and pay the price. The Embarcadero isn't perfect, but based on our experiences and conversations with many others, it is one of the best value all-inclusive resorts in the PV area -- especially because it is often available as a sell-off.
Had a great time!
We stayed for 2 weeks in 1999 and had a fabulous time! The sports and entertainment staff were great and we were constantly amused and busy having fun! Lots of activities and great people! The grounds and rooms were clean and staff were friendly. Had a wonderful time, and have recommended it to all our friends and family! Hope to return one day!
Our first time in PV. Loved it. The Embarcadero, sucked bigtime. Rooms adequate, tip the maid or you get no service at all. Grounds well kept. A La Carte meal, huge rip off, no water sports. Bartenders were great. Dont settle for room with no deck, and if you get one without goodluck getting one with, just wont happen. Food, well breadfast was fine, lunch same every day, dinner was disgusting, a total mystery!!!! On a scale of 1-10 I would rate this hotel a 3. I would never recommend an all inclusive to anyone, because the food was bad but we had paid for it and then had to eat out alot. But love Puerto Vallarta and will be back.
I just returned from a 2 week stay with my husband and 2 year old daughter. The area was lovely, but I would not recommend this hotel. My husband and I summed it to "Bad dishonest management". The brochure (Red Wing) advertised a kids club. There was no kids club, nor were there water activities. Many people complained, but nothing was done. Finally we were able to bring our daughter to the kids club across the road at "The Melia Hotel", but not without a stink. We spoke with management everyday for a solid week and were told to come back tomorrow. Finally after a week, our Red Wing rep showed up and we sorted it out. Another problem that they have is that there are 2 types of rooms. The first being your basic room with no balcony and the second having a large kitchen and balcony. The price is the same for both, but it is by random choice of who gets the balcony rooms. We asked to swith the second day that we arrived, but were told to come back tomorrow. Finally after 8 days of "coming back tomorrow" and having to go to the crooked management, we were finally moved to a room that would accomodate 3 people. I can certainly understand that they have 2 types of rooms, but they should charge a different rate for each. This would give people a choice before they arrived.
My sister and I spent an 'all-inclusive week' at this hotel. It was in a good location, north of downtown P.V. by about 6-7 miles and easily accessible by bus or taxi. The hotel itself was nothing fancy, though adequate. Some little things wrong, such as light bulbs burned out, screen door off it's runners. We found the staff extremely helpful, courteous and friendly. It was relatively quiet in the area, we felt safe out in the evening walking around the marina. It was quiet for sleeping at night, some partygoers in the hotel, but with the doors and windows shut and the air conditioning and fans going it wasn't a problem. Food was plentiful and available all waking hours. Entertainment at the evening meal wasn't great, but they tried. The pool was lovely, deck chairs always clean, grounds attractive. The recent hurricane had done damage to their beach and at the time we were there (early Dec.) it had not been repaired. However, it was still pleasant to sit on the property and gaze out to sea. There was shade under a few trees. Safes in each room provided security at a reasonable price. Lots of hot water and a clean bathroom. One criticism we had was they did not provide their guests with bottled water, though in the bar and a meals it was purified. The bellboy told us the water from the taps should not be used for drinking, though we later read in the local English newspaper that P.V. water was safe. So, possibly there was no need to buy water. I would go to the same hotel again as far as liking it went, but I would probably try another one just for a change. I felt the strongest point for the Embarcadero was their excellent staff.
Nice location with some problems
Very nice location on the Marina. You can watch all the ships go by and enjoy a long walk on the boardwalk. Staff very friendly,food average to good depending on the day. Rooms and pool area kept very clean. Suffers from poor management. No information provided about hotel facilities and activities unless you ask. Lost hotel water for half day.
Also lost my wallet to the pickpockets in P.V.
All my money and cards were taken. Be careful in town!
Service was great, entertainment was fantastic, staff was for the most part pretty good except one of the security guys stole my friend's rose. One other thing I didn't like was our friends were not allowed in our rooms if they were from another hotel which kinda sucked. Overall however, the food and drinks were great and most everyone was friendly. Be sure to get involved in the activities the coordinaters organize for the best experience and language learning opportunities.
We had a fabulous vacation, the service was great, everyone was extremely helpful and friendly! Great entertainment crew... fun times!
i found this hotel very well accomidated and the service was excellent. i have stayed at this hotel every spring break for three years and i have found no troubles. every morning the bed was made with towels folded like flowers, it may depend on the maid or if you tip her, but i found this hotel amazing! i would recomend it!
