... we drove to Sayulita, a further 20 minutes up the road than Bucerias. Nina and I had been there last year. What can I say. It's a surfing town. It looks like a hippy town from the 60s. It's straight from central casting. I love it. If I get the chance I would like to go back and photograph it, perhaps I'll go with Marshall before we all go to SMA. As it was we spent a loverly afternoon on the beach watching ...
... I know, I'm such a drama queen.)
I wandered down the main road and took a seat at Andales, a local favorite of my parents and their retired friends that lived down here. I placed myself strategically at a sidewalk table (awkwardly occupying only one seat at a table for six...) hoping to spot them if they were out and about. I also have some flight attendant friends that are meant to be down here this winter, so I had my eye out for them as well. I ordered ...
... in for lunch as well, leaving before me, and a Mexican couple. Considering how good the food was I’m surprised it wasn’t busier, however I’d put that down to the location which is a little off the tourist track.
Picked up ice from the usual place on the corner of Libertad and Juarez and poured myself a couple of almond tequilas on the rocks. I’ve become very fond of this drink already – it’s like a subtle Amoretto – and wish ...
... don’t drink alcohol?
We take the beers and walk up the stairs to the penthouse level of Casa de Puentes. We enter Mollie’s lair: postcard-like panoramic views of the river and surrounding hills, and barking sounds from 4 dogs protecting their turf fiercely despite their midget size. "You found the beers – good. Have a seat." Says Mollie as she appears from the corner of an antique bookshelf. Although she never ...
... we spend a few lazy hours sipping drinks , watching the sun set and swatting away locals of all description trying to sell us almost everything from clothing to gum. Ah, I,d forgotten Mexico. The weather was very cool here yesterday ( Saturday) and everyone was walking in "hoodies" and sweaters. The tourists are tanned so I,m sure it will warm up.
After drinks we headed out to see the town and find a place for dinner. On ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Lifestyles Getaway Club Puerto Vallarta
We had an awesome time in Puerto Vallarta because we met some terrific people at the Blue Bay Getaway! Would we go back there or reccommend this hotel? The answer is NO! Its a great place I would say for singles or the twenty something crowd that has no expectations for first time travelling to Puerta Vallarta. We really enjoyed the nightly shows and the entertainment staff! The rooms were clean and spacious and the maids were very efficient! What we did not like was the food, sanitation practices of glasses and the overall service provided from the bars! Don't expect to be waited on by the pool or even in the buffet restuarant! Don't expect any Mexican food at the restuarant! Many of us ate pasta daily and the cheeseburgers were quite good! From our opinion, we found most of the food to be unappetizing! What really made us sick was the way they wash their glasses! Basically they are not sanatized...they are simply rinsed out and reused! Many of us at the hotel became sick! It was our first time out of five trips we actually got sick from Mexico! If your not concerned with food, service or sanitation then give it a try, we did meet some awesome people who made the trip very enjoyable! Goodluck future BBG'ers!
My wife and I spent the week of March 23-30, 2002 at this resort. We had a great time. This is an all-inclusive resort (room, food, domestic drinks (yes, alcohol), nightly entertainment, and some water sports all included with the room rate). Guests are identified by yellow wristbands. It is for adults only. See "Blue Bay Club" if you have kids. Blue Bay Getaway is on the beach about a mile north of downtown Puerto Vallarta. Blue Bay Club is south of downtown, also on the beach. This review is for the Blue Bay Getaway only. Here's the breakdown:
Had a blast!
Just returned from the BBG. Had a great time! Lots of activities if you want to join in, rooms clean, food- lots of selection. Staff very helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend trying it out.
The Blue Bay Getaway
The Blue Bay Getaway Club was the best vacation ever! Remember though...The "Club" and the "Getaway" are not the same place. Everyone staying at Blue Bay Club were spending their day at the Blue Bay Getaway. It was so much better...and such a blast. I highly recommend it.
Great Hotel for Scuba Divers
We had a great time last winter 2001 at the Blue Bay Club ,the service was good,accomodations great and food excellent.
The most important commodity for us though as scuba divers was to have a great Padi dive shop " Ocean Quest Dive Center " located inside the hotel,where instructor & owner Klaus and his fellow instructor Ivan took great care of us with many days of great and safe diving.It was incredible,first time we dove with a giant manta two feet from us and sea turtles .
Also the activities team with their daily shows was great and the kids club took great care of our three year old doughter while we went diving
Blue bay getaway
A group of us have stayed at this hotel for the past two xmas holidays and have had a great time on both occasions. If you are going to stay here, upgrade to the superior or deluxe rooms because the standard rooms are the size of a closet. The hotel is really clean; the food was much better than at other inclusive hotels; the beach and pools were great as was the fun and energetic activities staff. i would definately reccomend this hotel over the blue bay club anyday because there are no kids to bother you while you are trying to relax.
I would definately recommend staying at the Blue Bay Club! Clean hotel, friendly staff and an awesome view. Did I mention the good food?!?! We really enjoyed our stay at the Blue Bay Club. It was nice to be able to go over to the Blue Bay Getaway to experience the "Party" atmosphere, then come back to the Club where the view is spectacular! Even though it is a family hotel, the children don't seem to be any problem or distraction to your holiday experience. Every night there is a different show put on by the activity staff, very well done for not being professionals. I would recommend getting an ocean view room though, we had an economy room facing the otherside of the hotel. It was a nice room, but the ocean view rooms were
