... clean one. There's nothing wrong with that if that's what you want. It's safe, has great food, gorgeous beaches, beautiful sunshine, a Walmart and a Costco and we're trying hard to adjust our expectations and be content here--as many obviously are.

We have paid accommodations for 5 weeks. Perhaps by the end of that time we'll have been converted. We have ...

Meh. Volvimos y nos duchamos y fuimos a la ciudad para cenarnos y mirar vidrieras y mirar a la gente. La cosa que no me gusta es que más gente trata de vendernos las cosas que en Nueva York.

... long but then there was 'Big Mama", she was around 15 feet long..... scary really. It was a bit unnerving to say the least. Even though they were sunning themselves only 20 yards from us, they can move fast if need be, so I was uncomfortable because I shoot right handed which meant that I had my back to them on every shot. The course was beautiful and next to the ocean- amazing experience that only cost $250 CAD for the cart ...

... talking about the Voladores de Papantla. They are descendants of the Totonac people and as part of their religious rituals a group will climb to the top of a pole and then descend upside down, attached only by a rope which swings them around the pole. One man is usually sitting on the top playing a flute and/or drums as the others descend. It is haunting music which can be heard from a great distance and of course is useful as a means of attracting ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Krystal Puerto Vallarta

    Got Scamed

    from

    Our first vacation from HELL.We also was invited to breakfast BUFFET, YES WAS SUCKERED IN. wE WERE ALSO LIED TO WHEN THE NEXT DAY WE WANTED OUT OF THE timeshare.We were told it was to late.We are now trying to terminate the agreement.I know one thing their not getting money from us even if it hurts our credit.I've already called the credit card companies to close our accounts,on the cards we charged.I hope no one has to go through this.

    Beautiful Resort

    from

    My husband and I just returned from Puerto Vallarta and a week's stay at the Kystal. It was absolutely fabulous! It was just like staying in a mexican village, with our very own apartment. The pools were beautiful, and we never had a problem finding a spot at the pool or on the beach. My only criticism, is the resort hosted 2 private parties without notifying guests of the parties, and they were both held at the main pool, so you had to find somewhere else to go. If they would have given us advanced warning we could have made alternate plans ahead of time. The one party was loud and went until after 2:00 a.m. Also, beware of the "welcoming" persons. They aren't there to welcome you to the Krystal. They're there to get you to buy into a time share, under the guise of working for the Krystal. We didn't take up there offer, but a couple we met did, and their "welcoming" lasted 3 hours, on their first morning there! They missed 3 hours of beach/pool time, thinking they were getting an orientation to the resort. Overall though, we loved it and we would definitely go back.

    Krystal made my stay ..........the BEST

    from

    Hi,I would strongly recommend to stay in Krystal Vallarta. The staff is very friendly, they will do the best to make your stay comfortable. And the decore is so much mexican, not those high rise building. The pillars at the beach looks awesome, speacially during sunset. The pool is good too. The beach is not very crowded. I havent not seen much people going in ocean water, I saw most of them on pool which is facing the beach. Food I say was not the best, rather I preferred going to downtown to eat which has lot more variety and is not expensive.

    Review as an all-inclusive

    from

    We spent 2 weeks at PV in January 2003 one week at 2 different all-inclusives - the Krystal and the Riu Jalisco. Found that they were quite different. Also refer to the Rui Jalisco for comments.At the Krystal, very few of the guests were all-inclusive. The hotel had more mature guests and more mature hotel staff, and we sometimes felt out of place as an all-inclusive. When we ordered food or drinks, the staff frequently had to check with supervisors as to what we were entitled to and that seemed to vary at times. Even though the desk told us not to tip because they were included, we quickly found out that if you don't tip, you don't get good service. The room, a jr suite, was spacious but older décor, the villas appeared to be newer, and the time share condos were newer again with their separate private section and their own pools. The grounds and pools areas were wonderful, but our room was in an older part. Mini bar was extra with very high prices - approx 5 times what you could buy it for at Walmart a 10 minute walk. 1 litre bottle of water in the room was $4.50 US. The food was very good quality, but the menu and/or menu was limited. The people at most other tables had their choice of the buffet or ordering from an expanded menu. Drinks were limited and only available until 10PM. All meals had to be charged to our room and then the front desk would decide what to add on our hotel bill. When we checked out, they did only charge us for the extra tips we marked on the bills. Checking in and out was very slow and inefficient. The main restaurants at the front of the hotel were quite expensive, so for variety, we opted for the Outback Restaurant across the street.Weather was perfect, even in the evenings. Day time activities were limited, and there was no evening entertainment, except in the disco Christine out front. Overall, based on our stay at two all-inclusives, we definitely preferred the Rui Jalisco over the Krystal. But I over heard someone else say the Krystal was much better than where they had stayed previous.

    Good and bad

    from

    Good: 1. The grounds are great. 2. The location midway between the marina and downtown is very convenient. 3. The room was clean. 4. They recommended the Vagabundo whale watching trip--the highlight of our vacation. Bad:1. The hotel booked private, very loud, outdoor parties two of the four nights we were there. The one with a not so very good band went until 2:00 am and included two late rounds of fireworks. People were kept up throughout the lush 32 acres. Complaints fell on deaf (perhaps due to the noise) ears.2. The standard room villas are groups of three hotel rooms with a very small pool and a patio. Great arrangement if you are part of a group with all three rooms. Otherwise, the noise carries into the rooms very well.3. Check in process became a pain as a "concierge" had to welcome us before formal check-in, then after formal check-in had to explain to us all about the hotel, town, etc., all as a lead-in to putting on the sales pitch to get us to sign up for a free breakfast to hear the time-share presentation. It was not a quick process just to say no thanks and it was too much after a rough day of travelling and a desire to get to the beach ASAP. (Even a later request for whale tour suggestions ended up with a full court press about a time-share presentation.)4. Only a limited number of beach chairs and permanent umbrellas resulting in the need to get there to stake one out by 8:00 am at the latest and everyone being tightly packed in when there is a lot of beach...

    Absolutely authentic

    from

    I just got back from a week stay in Puerto Vallarta with my best friend. We stayed at the Krystal Vallarta. It was absolutely gorgeous. There is so much greenery everywhere and the authentic rooms are very Mexican. We had an All-Inclusive package.

    Wow!

    from

    Lavish, lush grounds - very well maintained.

    Wonderfully appointed older suite that we stayed in. Large tiled combination bath/shower, separate king size bedroom, walk-in closet. Balcony overlooking the aqueduct pool. Authentic style decor with lots of woodwork. Clean and everything worked!

    Truly delightful location on the bay, magnificent pool adjacent to the beach. Grill type restaurant by the pool with glorious views of the bay, the town and the mountains beyond.

    Get me a ticket back - QUICK!

    The only hotel in Vallarta with 33 Acres of space!

    from

    It is very original, no high rise towers, no lifts, no crowds, it is very authentic, very mexican and very big. The staff is superb and amigable. I will come back again!

    Krystal Vallarta Resorts

    from

    I have stayed at the Krystal Vallarta Resorts for three vacations once in Cancun and twice in Puerto Vallarta. I am going back to stay again this summer at the Krystal Vallarta in Puerto Vallarta. The Krystal Vallarta hotel is just wonderful, it's like little villas, you are not all bunched up together. You will get the real Mexican feeling when you stay here, not like other hotels. The staff was very helpful, and all areas were immaculate, not one piece of paper or litter anywhere on the grounds. The pool was just fantastic a swim up bar and lounge chairs are made into the pool, also regular lounge chairs. There are seven pools on the grounds. This is a perfect hotel to stay at with six different restaurants, disco and gift shops, you can stay on the grounds and never leave the area. The beach is clean and the security is just great, they do not let peddlars on the site and they are kept off the beach. I cant wait for my vacation, I will be looking into Krystal Vallarta other locations, for next year.

    Excellent

    from

    Unbelievable resort, beautiful accomodations, great service. We stayed in a master suite, 1 bedroom--highly recommended!! We had a huge tiled tub in the bathroom, two televisions, kitchen area, and a wraparound porch with ocean view. Great restaurants too.

    Go in September, it's less crowded, very pleasant experience. We were blown away by our experience.
