We stayed in the Portofino Condos in March, we stayed in the one of the penthouses and it was beautiful. All condos have ocean view, a nice pool with snack bar. Beautiful beach area, this is in the Marina so you need to take a bus or taxi to downtown and the Malecon. But a nice walk to the shops in ...

Yes that's the place. Also my cousin is supposed to be staying there in two weeks, but i'm sure she'll find some where else. As for the refund, were not sure yet. Some of the other people on the plane were saying it was all over the net that this place had some sort of virus and to avoid going there...

La Jolla de Mismaloya

I was wondering if anyone has been to LJDM lately, i was there about three years ago. Family is leaving Saturday, and i haven't been able to find any recent reviews anywhere. Does anyone know how the beach is now or if they've renovated the rest of the rooms. Thanks in advance. 8)

We've stayed at both the Buganvillias when it was a Sheraton and also the Mayan Palace in Nuevo which is really only 5 minutes from the airport. Both are non ai, Buganvillias is walking distance to town, but very little beach. Mayan Palace is bus or taxi to town, but a very big beautiful beach and p...

It's probably 30min. or so from each other. But i doubt whether you would be allowed to use the pool at the Grand Mayan, because even those next door at The Mayan Palace aren't allowed to use the pool area at the Grand Mayan :?

We were at the Sheraton before the hurricane, 5 years ago and at that time they really didn't have much for a beach. It was only the length of the hotel, and it drops off quickly, so there was a real undertow. The hotel was beautiful then and even more so now, from what i've heard. Have a great time...

four digit pin numbers

I know its been said many times that you need a four digit pin number for your debit or credit cards to work in Mexico. My question is to take out cash advances on our new credit card the pin is five digits, when we called to tell them you can only use four digits in Mexico, they told us even though...

We paid $638 tax included over last christmas from Vancouver, that was two months in advance. So you may get a better deal looking later on around Sept. or Oct. for flights at Christmas time.

Re:Mayan Palace PV Disco.

We were at the one in Nuevo Vallarta, thats where the theater is being built. You can take a cab for 130 pesos to downtown from NV. To catch the bus you need to first take the shuttle to the Sea Garden, and then get on the bus to downtown.

Did you check out the trip reports? Two people just returned from there, sounds like they had a good time. We were there a couple of years ago and enjoyed it very much, it's beautiful watching the yachts go by on the marina side and also having the beach side.
