The location is great, we loved the Marina. The hotel is beautiful, especially the grounds and the pool, the rooms are very nice EXCEPT for the open window with shutters between the bath and the room. Did not work for two girlfriends at all. The only rooms without this are on the 3rd floor, have to specifically ask for that next time! Definitely an older crowd and not a party hotel (which made us very happy). Waiters at the beach/pool varied, one was great, very attentive and helpful, the next day they barely even assisted us when we walked up to the bar. The spa is very nice, Robert (I think his actual name is Rojulio) gave me one of the best massages I've ever had, and I've had a lot!! A very nice, quiet, beautiful hotel in a great location!
The hotel, food and service were simply wonderful. We loved everything about our hotel. The staff were all extremely polite and helpful, including Ralph, Rene, Xavier and Louis. We would definitely come back!
This hotel is within walking distance of the airport and approximately a 10-15 minute walk to the picturesque marina area. A large grocery store, a McDonald's,a bank, a Chinese food take-out, and bus stop where you can catch a bus and take an inexpensive ride downtown is all located across the street.
The staff are efficient, accommodating, and very friendly. The WiFi reception is excellent.
Pool is heated, great for swimming laps, the hot tub is enjoyable but temperature could be a little warmer. There's a well equipped exercise room. Included breakfast is convenient and sufficient for a good start to the day.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
my boyfriend and I just got back from our trip and we enjoyed our stay at the Melia. This is an all inclusive hotel however the food was not that great and the restaurant reservations were always booked up. Other than that everything else was perfect! Super clean and awesome staff! Would recommend
Marina Vallarta is a large residential and tourist complex with a 500-slip marina. The marina’s lighthouse, El Faro, features a cocktail lounge that’s popular during sunset. The community’s namesake 18-hole golf course gives a new meaning to term water hazard: crocodiles inhabit its lagoons. Restaurants and shops line Marina Vallarta’s boardwalk.
