... and a huge outdoor restaurant that serves three glorious buffet lines a day. That is, if you have a green wrist band. We chose to take the European plan – no meals or drinks included – and we wore the dreaded yellow wrist band. The pool was just as chilly, the ocean just as beautiful and down the street a block or so away we had the most awesome shrimp tacos and ceviche I’ve ever had instead of the aluminum hotel pans full of ...

We hardly stepped foot onto the sand before we were accosted by over-zealous beach vendors. They attacked from all sides shoving sarongs, jewellery and sunglasses in our face. I swear the same guy came back 4 times! I thought Septi-hambre (September Hungry) was over?
We were hesitant to make the trip over to PV. Everyone said it's super-touristy.

Do you remember the old cowboy films when they are surrounded by indians and about to be overrun? Then you hear the cavalry charging to the rescue? That is the very loud refrain played every minute either increasing or decreasing in volume as he criss-crosses the grid pattern of streets. It is an very effective alarm clock.

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
