Adults-only beachfront resort with a huge pool and nightly entertainment
This beachfront resort offers an all-inclusive, kid-free environment in Puerto Vallarta. While local nightlife is minutes away in a taxi, the resort also has many solid food, beverage, and entertainment options on-site. During the day the hotel sets the stage for relaxation with its huge pool and yellow-striped cabanas on the beach. In the evening, there are three specialty restaurants (reservations are required) as well as nightly entertainment. The resort's disco, Nitro Club, is open until 2 a.m.
Convenient beachfront location close to the Marina
The location of the Golden Crown Paradise Resort strikes the perfect balance between too busy and too quiet. This stretch of beach is located south of the cruise ship dock and north of town, offering a balance between the peaceful Marina and Nuevo Vallarta and the more hectic scene closer to downtown. The beach here is still busy, but is fairly wide and clean. Golf courses are nearby and all the shopping and nightlife of the city is a short cab ride away.
The Golden Crown Paradise Resort has 214 rooms and suites featuring balconies with beautiful ocean views. Rooms are bland with dated furniture, tube TVs, and don't have access to the Internet. The color scheme is appropriate for the beach, and rooms are decorated in calm yellow and earthy tones. Some guests complain of hard beds, but the property is clean and well-maintained.
This adults-only beachfront resort has a huge pool and nice slice of the beach for its guests. While the pool deck can seem crowded at times, there are also plenty of lounge chairs and yellow-striped cabanas on the beach. In addition to the outdoor pool, the hotel also offers clay tennis courts, a small spa, and a gym with yoga classes.
Variety of casual and elegant restaurants along with 24-hour room service
This all-inclusive resort offers a variety of dining options, including a trio of specialty restaurants where reservations are required. These three restaurants all have a resort elegant dress code, requiring men to wear pants. Casual choices include the Bellavista Cafeteria, serving three meals a day, and also offering a cooking show on the weekends. Snacks and light meals are also available at the Grill or the Breeze Beach and Snack Bar.
An adults-only, beachfront property, the Golden Crown Paradise All-Inclusive Resort is a dated hotel with some nice features. The 214 rooms and suites might be bland and lacking any strong design element, but the balconies do offer great ocean views. A huge pool and slice of the wide beach with yellow-striped cabanas are ideal for relaxing, but guests complain about the lack of Internet in the rooms. Convenient all-inclusive features include three restaurants, an on-site disco open late, and small spa.
