Park Royal Los Tules Homestay

Scene

A laid-back property with a residential vibe, lots of pools, and lovely city views 

The sprawling Los Tules complex is a quiet beachfront enclave that offers an oasis of peace and quiet on the city’s busiest road. Featuring over 900 palm trees, the lush and secluded grounds are home to meandering paths, traditional low-rise Mexican buildings with tile roofs, and colorful displays of Spanish poems depicted in lovely tile work. Large packs of iguanas rove freely around the property, popping up in different areas at unexpected times. 

The complex features 260 condo-style units in total, 83 of which make up the Park Royal Los Tules hotel. Aside from the main lobby, the hotel buildings are indistinguishable from the private condos, making the whole complex feel like one big residential community. Because the units are large and capable of sleeping up to 11 guests, the hotel is popular with families and groups. Lots of children can be found playing in the main pool, but with seven other smaller pools scattered among the buildings, it’s almost always possible to find a quiet place to relax and unwind in silence. For travelers who prefer a home-away-from-home feel to that of a traditional hotel, Park Royal Los Tules is a solid option.

Location

On a vast stretch of beautiful Las Glorias Beach, close to both downtown Puerto Vallarta and the airport 

Park Royal Los Tules is in a prime location for guests who want to be close to the airport while also being a short drive from the city’s top sights. Sitting on a large stretch of Las Glorias Beach in Puerto Vallarta’s South Hotel Zone, the hotel is also on busy Highway 200, the city’s main road. But it's set far enough back to enjoy peace and quiet. The immediate surrounding area is made up of other hotels, shops, and a few restaurants. Central Puerto Vallarta is a 10- to 15-minute drive to the south. Central Puerto Vallarta is where guests will find several of the city’s most popular restaurants, bars, and shops, as well as the landmark Parish of Our Lady of Guadalupe church and the famous Malecon, the city’s lively oceanfront promenade, full of public art and food vendors. Licenciado Gustavo Diaz Ordaz International Airport is a 12-minute drive to the north.

Features

A casual restaurant/bar, eight pools, a large beach, tennis courts, and a grocery store -- but no all-inclusive rates

Park Royal Los Tules shares the amenities of the larger Los Tules condo complex, which offers more of the perks guests might find at a residential property than the typical resort. The small but charming Cafe Chapultepec sits at the center of the property beside the large freeform main pool. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and drinks are served at poolside tables. Traditional Mexican decor features lots of the beautiful glass hearts that can be found in many Puerto Vallarta establishments.

The pool is lined with plenty of sun loungers, though it lacks umbrellas or palapas for shade. Scattered around the large property there are seven other smaller pools and a hot tub. These pools are generally quieter than the main pool, which is popular with families, and guests might even be lucky enough to have one of the smaller pools all to themselves. The sprawling property sits on a long and lovely stretch of Las Glorias Beach, which is perfectly positioned for sunset and offers great views of central Puerto Vallarta in the distance. Though some vendors do wander through, there aren’t as many here as on many of the other beaches in the area.

Two massage rooms are on hand where guests can purchase relaxing massages and wellness treatments. There’s also a paved soccer pitch and four tennis courts, which are free to use by day, but have a small fee at night to cover the cost of the lights. The small supermarket sells basic groceries and supplies. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the property, and guests can park for free in the Los Tules private lot.
