This was my first stay in an all inclusive. Although it is located out of the Vallarta limits, a cab ride into town is not that big of a hassle. The staff is very attentive.

Clean, comfortable rooms. Electricity works off tour key card, so might get an extra one. Good food in all the restaurants, and in the main dining hall. Excellent food in the "Don Quijote" restaurant. Service was excellent, although the resort appeared under staffed.
