Located on one of Puerto Vallarta’s best beachfronts, this Fiesta Americana property caters well to both families and couples with plenty of activities and good food for an all-inclusive. The rooms and interiors are somewhat dated, and some have less-than-stellar views; but the resort offers outstanding overall service (especially for the price range), excellent dining variety (especially for a smaller all-inclusive), a nice spa, and a calm ocean that’s safe and ideal for swimming. Rooms come with large flat-screen smart TVs, 24-hour room service, and balconies or terraces. The new Sonne Club is an adults-only area with private cabanas, comfortable lounge chairs, and an infinity pool overlooking the ocean. Two shopping malls (La Isla Shopping Village and Plaza Caracol), a movie theater, nightlife, and off-site restaurants are easily within walking distance.
All guests are eligible for a complimentary COVID-19 antigen test on-site prior to departure. Also, at check-in, guests are offered insurance, called “Travel with Confidence Protection,” that covers any accidents or illnesses (including COVID) at a cost of $4 USD per night. In the event of a positive test and the need for an extended stay, the insurance will reduce room rates to $10 USD (plus taxes) per person per night.
