Oyster Hotel Review

Puerto de Luna Pet Friendly and Family Suites

Scene

A cute, colorful pet-friendly oasis set on lush tropical grounds 

The pet-friendliness of Puerto de Luna is clear from the moment guests first turn in past the cute dog-shaped sign at the entrance. After passing through the vibrant blue tiled gates, a long, palm tree-lined drive with quaint iguana crossing signs takes guests to the colorful lobby. Dogs roam freely among the two-legged guests checking in and out, and pet-friendly perks are scattered about, including a few dog beds for the furry guests who need a rest. Tucked in the corner of the property is a large doggy park with quirky hand-painted signs where pets can run free and play.

The hotel’s grounds are lush and lovely, full of swaying palm trees and tropical plants. A moon theme pops up everywhere, from tiled statues tucked among leaves, to moon decor in the hallways, to charming moon-inspired quotes hand-painted on the walls of the guest rooms. The central pool is a place where couples and families can unwind and get a break from the heat. Even though the hotel sits on a major road, it’s tucked so far back in that guests enjoy nothing but peace and quiet. Puerto de Luna is a great choice for guests who can’t bear to part with their pets while on vacation.

Location

On the city’s main road, halfway between the airport and central Puerto Vallarta 

Set off busy Highway 200, the main road running through all of Puerto Vallarta, Puerto de Luna is in a convenient location for exploring the city. The closest beach is behind the properties that sit across the highway from the hotel, about an eight-minute walk away. The center of Puerto Vallarta is a 10-minute drive or taxi ride away. Here, guests will find the landmark Parish of Our Lady of Guadalupe church, as well as the Malecon, the lively oceanfront promenade that runs the length of the city, and features public artworks, evening food vendors, restaurants, bars, and shops. Playa Los Muertos, one of the city’s most popular beaches, is at the southern end of the Malecon, a 15- to 20-minute drive from the hotel. Licenciado Gustavo Diaz Ordaz International Airport is a 10-minute drive away.

Rooms

Pleasant rooms with basic amenities, plus suites with kitchens and balconies 

The hotel’s blue color scheme and moon-themed decor carry into its guest rooms, adding a bit of charm and life to what are otherwise fairly basic quarters, with tile floors and simple wood furnishings. Standard Rooms feature air-conditioning, ceiling fans, and flat-screen TVs. Wi-Fi is free in all rooms. Irons and ironing boards are available on request. Basic bathrooms come with a few simple toiletries and showers (no tubs). There are only a handful of lights, leaving rooms feeling a bit dim.

Hand-painted Spanish quotes about the moon adorn the walls of the Studios, which add kitchenettes with small refrigerators, microwaves, coffeemakers, blenders, toasters, and dishes. They also offer small dining tables and furnished balconies. Junior Suites and Superior Suites add living areas and sleep up to four guests. Family Suites have two bedrooms and sleep up to six guests.

Features

An outdoor pool, a breakfast restaurant, and a charming dog park

The lush grounds at Puerto de Luna are home to a handful of amenities that add to its family- and pet-friendly atmosphere. An outdoor freeform pool sits at the center of the property, lined with plenty of sun loungers. A small wading area and lots of pool noodles make it a safe place for kids to play. Next to the pool is a sheltered bar and picnic area where guests can eat and prepare their own food. Grill rentals are available.

Breakfast (and no other meals) is served at La Terraza restaurant, an open-air eatery that overlooks the parking lot and is decorated with the glass hearts that seem to be found everywhere in Puerto Vallarta. Across the parking lot is the hotel’s doggy park, a large, fenced-in open area where pets can run free. There’s an extra fee for pets to stay at the hotel, and pet beds are offered subject to availability.

There’s a large open sports field that guests can use, as well as a small area across from the restaurant that features a foosball table, an air hockey table, and a small library of used books and board games. Free Wi-Fi is available in certain public areas around the property. Guests can park for free in the hotel’s parking lot.
