We stayed in the penthouse for a week with family. It was an amazing experience. Each room was air conditioned, which was nice for sleeping, as the rest of the house is "open air". The elevator opens up directly into the penthouse, so it was like arriving "in style" every time you came home for the day. The views were...

This was my second visit to Vallarta Shores, but the first time staying in a sky suite. The suite was beautiful and well appointed. The views are stunning from up there. The living area (kitchen and living room) are covered, but outdoors. We were there during the hot, humid season, so it was often hot. However, we didn't spend much...

I've stayed at Vallarta Shores for many years now and multiple times per year. Over the years I have stayed in the 1 bedroom units, the 2 bedroom units, as well as the Sky Suites (3 bedrooms) All of the staff are very professional and attentive. I would not stay anywhere else in Puerto Vallarta.

We stayed at this wonderful place for our 10 year anniversary trip that we went on with family and friends. While not a resort, and the pool is lackluster, a lot of the rooms have private infinity pools and you are just steps from the beach. We stayed in the penthouse and it was amazing! The 360 degree views are...

This was by far one of the most beautiful accommodations we have ever seen. It lived up to all its advertisement and more. We stayed in Sky Sites E there were 6 of us and we had plenty of room, the private infinity pool and private chef brought this trip over the top. I do not have a single negative...

We stayed from Sept 22 to Sept 26 in the Penthouse with 3 other couples for a family birthday party (my 70th). From the VIP pick up at the airport to the VIP drop off at the airport it was a fantastic time. We have been to PV and NV several times and this was definitely the best. No feeling...

Amazing place with a neat experience. We stayed on the 7th floor which is the Penthouse, had to have a key in the elevator that's opens up to your floor and an spectacular view. Most of all, and if you can, ask for Chef Philippe. He was are personal chef for time we were there. All I'm going to say...

I loved everything about this place - from watching the dolphins from our balcony to seeing turtles lay eggs on the private beach in front of the apartment. Great accommodation with helpful, friendly staff in a great location. I highly recommend it.

Thank you very much for choosing us ! It is so nice you were lucky enough to be able to see turtles lay eggs on the beach. Dolphins & whales are often spotted during the winter season. We are glad you had a great time staying at Vallarta Shores.

The hotel is right on the water and the balconies in even the smaller rooms are a great size. The "small" rooms are the size of good sized one bedroom apartment. Pool is small but nice. Within walking distance of many restaurants and shopping, etc. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely go back. I hope to get some friends...
