It would also be nice if the staff stayed aware of chairs that are taken for hours when the user drops a towel walks away to return many hours later. The pluses they have are the staff and well made food and even better made cocktails. The rooms were clean, the refrigerator kept stocked and the bathrooms had great towels. Only one very minor issue is wash cloths;if you use them you will need to request and may or not be replaced after daily service. The food was good. If you stay to the dishes prepared reflecting the local cuisine you will be most satisfied. The seafood buffet was great. The reservation restaurants made dinner with service a great way to end lovely days. All the service was great regardless if at the service restaurants or the buffet. Friendly and efficient best describes every ones efforts. I will mention one of them by name Raul who I believe is the restaurant manager. He did go above and beyond in every interaction. Overall a well spent vacation.
Pros: The staff set the bar high and exceeded it everyday.
Cons: The place needs to be better maintained. The pool needs tiles to be replaced. It would be nice if either of the hot tubs functioned. The beach needs to treated as part of the hotel. The chairs had few cushions and drink service was close to non-existent.
Very Good
Overall, we enjoyed our stay. The beds were a little hard and I was glad I brought my own pillow. It really bothered us that they wouldn't take no for an answer regarding the membership presentation, especially since we had been traveling since 3am and just wanted to go to our room. They had music playing until pretty late at night that was REALLY loud so we recommend bringing earplugs if you want to go to bed before 11:00.
Pros: The food was amazing! There was always a lot to choose from and the additional restaurants inside that required reservations were romantic. Drinks at the bar were delicious too, especially the adelitas!
Cons: The second we arrived at the hotel, they started trying to force us to sign up for a presentation about becoming a hotel club member. We ended up going and it was a HUGE waste of time. The internet was only available in the lobby unless we paid extra.
The grounds were great, the food was better than I expected. I didn't feel crowded or rushed to get to the pool to reserve a good chair. The beach was perfect and the hotel being so close to downtown/ marina and airport worked out.. We booked our Vallarta adventure(amazing company!) excursions online (discount is the same the hotel offers with the 90min presentation).
Pros: The staff were all amazing: Silva at breakfast, Daniel and Abraham by the pool, Francisco at the front of the hotel daily, Raul in activities.. Everyone was accommodating and we enjoyed relaxing care-free on the gorgeous hotel grounds during this getaway.
Cons: We felt pressured with the timeshare aka "melia rewards" presentation. Each day walking to breakfast we had say no, while making dinner reservations we had to say no and hear that this presentation would be different/worth the discounts.
Very Good

Very good
Cons: The hotel is lovely however the beach is no really nice, also during the day there was just one bar open, it felt like they didn't have enough staff for high season, there were too many kids at the property so no very quite. Entertainment at night was good.There is one more thing that annoyed me, I felt sorry to see how much plastic rubbish they generate as they use plastic glasses and plates.
