Oyster Hotel Review
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.
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.
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
Bland furnishings, flat-screen TVs, and robes
The rooms have a chain-like feel, featuring generic decor and bland, neutral furnishings. Red chairs and paintings of coral add a touch of color. The brown comforters with thin orange stripes are outdated. Small balconies offer ocean, garden, or pool views. High-tech amenities include flat-screen TVs and iHome stations. Bathrooms have generic toiletries and showers. Robes are provided and mini-fridges with beer, soda, and water are restocked daily.
- 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, flowers, and fruit plate on arrival.
