Pros

Cons

Bottom Line

For family fun, this place is hard to beat -- what with the amazing children's pool and slides, the colorful kids' club with covered sand pit, and the Family Rooms designed to sleep two parents and up to three children younger than 12. Beyond the kid stuff, the hotel has clay tennis courts with nighttime lighting, a great beach, and plentiful dining options, along with a small fitness center and tiny spa. The focus is definitely on family here, so couples looking for a romantic getaway may want to choose the adults-only Golden Crown Paradise All-Inclusive Resort instead.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

Mid-range resort with a focus on kid-friendly amenities

Designed as a family-friendly resort, this low-rise property is comprised of brightly-painted buildings surrounded by neatly manicured grounds packed with amenities for kids, including a small playground, a kids' club with separate activities for preschoolers and older children, and a huge kids' pool (marketed as a water park) with nine slides, a castle, and a pirate ship -- but no lounge chairs.

The other two pools -- including an adults-only one -- are on the small side, as are the spa and fitness center.

With the focus on family here, couples looking for a romantic getaway may opt for the nearby adults-only sister property -- Golden Crown Paradise All-Inclusive Resort.

 Location

Beachside location, midway between downtown Puerto Vallarta and the swanky Marina Vallarta golf community

This resort's location on a stretch of beach just south of the cruise ship dock and north of downtown offers a good balance between the more secluded feel of the hotels in the upscale Marina Vallarta golf community and the more hectic scene found in the heart of the city. The beach is busy, but still fairly wide and clean. Several nearby golf courses are just a 10-minute cab ride away, as is downtown's shopping and nightlife scene. Even closer is the mall, which features department stores, an air-conditioned food court, and an inexpensive movie theater with comfy seats and American movies.

  • 5-minute drive from Licenciado Diaz Ordaz International Airport
  • 5-minute drive to Galerias Vallarta mall
  • 10-minute drive to Marina Vallarta, which offers a golf course, shops, and restaurants
  • 10-minute drive to downtown

 Rooms

Bland furnishings and no high-tech amenities

The brightly-colored walls do little to fix the chain-like feel of the rooms, which feature generic decor and bland, beige furnishings. Small balconies offer ocean, garden, or pool views, but high-tech amenities are lacking.

  • Tube TVs
  • The Family Room includes a king-size bed for the adults and a tiny, enclosed sleeping area for the kids (must be younger than 12), with a bunk bed, trundle bed, and separate TV.
  • The Honeymoon Suite has a king-size bed, Jacuzzi, large balcony with ocean views, stocked mini-fridge, flowers, and fruit plate on arrival.

 Features

Kids' pool is huge, spa is disappointingly small

 Food

Five restaurants serving a variety of cuisines, including Italian, Japanese, and Mexican

With five restaurants, there are a variety of cuisines to choose from, including Italian, Japanese, and Mexican dishes. Settings range from casual to sophisticated, with reservations, dress codes, and age restrictions enforced at some dining areas. Room service is available 24 hours.

  • La Piazza Restaurant: Italian menu, kids’ menu, open six nights per week
  • Fujiyama Restaurant: Japanese cuisine, open six nights per week, resort casual dress
  • Sans Soucis Restaurant: Changing menu, sophisticated setting, no children ages eight and younger permitted
