Look at the Hotel Tropicana. We love the location and some of the rooms have just been remodeled. There is a bar and daytime restaurant and they just completed a new pool in November 2012. Many great dinner restaurants within a few blocks walking. You can't go wrong ! When we book, we book with brea...

Is the Roxy still open? I'm reading the old thread, and it sounds like it closed? It sounds like a great place for dancing the night away!

Booked and waiting. We leave Feb 29 for a glorious 16 days in the area. Our first stop is for 8 hights in a really great bed and breakfast in Rincon de Guayabitos, then back to PV fro the rest of our stay at a condo in the Zona Romantica. We travel to Mexico every year, (fingers crossed) with my si...

Personally, I enjoyed the CYC webcam more than the PV net one. I don't know if it's just me... ? Perhaps a webcam from Playa Los Arcos rooftop looking toward Los Arco and the sunset would reel me in... :)

Willie sans Lobo played in the Okanagan and we were lucky enough to be in Penticton at the Dream Cafe and witnessed the beautiful music. To my excitement, they will be playing the River Cafe in early November 08... where I will also get to see them again!! Not sure if it is Willie and Lobo or Willie...

I would agree with the recommendation for Golden Crown Paradise. The rooms are very nice, and the hotel offers room service with your all inclusive! We really enjoyed our stay, although the grounds were quite small. The beach is wonderful, best beach area of hotel zone IMO. The bar served top shelf ...

I would suggest Casa Isabela ... other than that.. hmmmm AI... I guess the Melia or Dreams... would be what you are looking for at that price range. Remember... you are in Mexico! You cannot buy luxury...only experience it. I think that a private rental might be more up your tree... the AI is pretty...

It is directly north of Dacquiri Dicks. The owners also own Si Senor (and The Blue Shrimp). Food in those other places is OK. Prices are a bit expensive for their quality. I suspect they will have to shape up to compete with Dicks and Coco Tropical. Their primary market is tourists so they advertis...

Thanks for the info Sandy. Yes, that is the place I was referring to. I don't believe I've ever eaten at Blue Shrimp... how is the food there?

Palapa restaurant on the beach at L. Cardenas

I have been watching this restaurant being rebuilt for the last year or so. It was almost ready when we were there in March 08. Is it open yet? I recall a sign posting what the restaurant name was, but my memory fails me. It used to be a Hawaiin Restaurant?? Anybody with any info? Many thanks, Sandra

Metamorfosis Massage

We just returned from a wonderful week in PV. My hubby and I treated ourselves to a full body massage at Metamorfosis just around the corner from Andales. You will find coupons on Brenda's Board. I have to tell you... Hilda is FANTASTIC as well as JOSE. Both of us really enjoyed our treatments. I am...
