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.
We wondered around, had supper on the street at a ...
At around midday I set off for a small town about an hour north of Puerto Vallarta called Sayulita. It was the first time I rode public transport in Mexico, so the two buses to get there helped ...
... may have to wait to get a table. We had to wait about 20 minutes for a table so we went to Barracuda Bar to wait and have a drink. We were given a beeper and it went off before we finished our drinks.
We both ordered a shrimp cocktail, fillet with mashed potatoes and a brownie with white ice cream for dessert. I ordered chicken wings, a fillet with baked potato and for dessert a pineapple pie with ginger ...

After the lazy river adventure, we hit the ocean again. This time I refused to take off my shoes, we got some lounge chairs and we laid in the sun. And wind. Soooooo windy yesterday and today but not a cloud in the sky.
We both can only do that for so long before one gets bored so we thought we'd come back to the room and change and since I had been only thinking about where we would eat ...
... lots of hiking up steep trails and then back down to bottom for a small snack and bumpy bus ride and boat ride back.....I was out like a light after dinner....what a day and burnt to a crisp on shoulders and chest...ouch..... And before the zip lining we went Parasailing off the beach...very cool and fun fun fun....Craig said it scared the beejezuz out of him.......he videotaped it and all he kept saying was OMG Holy ****....lol too ...

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
