Review Summary

Photos and Review by

Pros

  • Huge kids' pool area with 9 slides, castle, and pirate ship
  • Beachfront location convenient to airport, downtown
  • 2 clay tennis courts with nighttime lighting
  • Plenty of dining options at the 4 restaurants
  • Ocean, pool, or garden views from all guest rooms and suites
  • Free use of ocean sports gear: kayaks, boogie boards, sailboards
  • Family Rooms include kids' bedrooms with bunk beds and TVs

Cons

  • Spa and fitness center are tiny
  • Fee for Wi-Fi

Bottom Line

For family fun, this resort is solid -- featuring a children's pool and slides, colorful kids' club with covered sand pit, and 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.

Scene

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

This mid-range resort focuses on kid-friendly features, though there are spaces – like the Adults-Only Pool and Jacuzzi—designed for adults to escape

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.

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

Map of Crown Paradise Club All-Inclusive Resort

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, flat-screen TVs, and robes

The generic Family Room includes a separate sleeping area for kids with a bunk bed and separate TV; decor is dated

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.
