The rooms at this hotel look nothing like what they do on the pictures advertised. The room was not clean, and the décor is extremely dated. After complaining about the first room we were given, they upgraded us to another room which had the same problem, dirty and outdated. The floors need polishing and the furniture needs refinishing and thorough cleaning as well. The balconies were not comfortable to stand on either. The beach was filled with rocks...this was not just due to the season, since many nearby hotels had a good beach to relax on. The hotel needs a really good remodel before being advertised on the Travelzoo site again.

Costa Sur Resort & Spa made our first trip to Puerto Vallarta one to remember! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. You can't beat the location- close to downtown Puerto Vallarta if you want to enjoy a bit of nightlife, but also far enough from downtown PV to enjoy some tranquil and relaxing vacation time! :)

The Costa Sur is a classic, older hotel currently undergoing some exciting upgrades. The rooms are spacious and impeccably clean. The staff is the BEST I have encountered at any hotel worldwide: extremely gracious, accommodating and friendly. The staff treats you like a visiting family member, not a guest. 5-10 mins away from city center set on a quiet and gorgeous bay. Costa Sur boasts a great protected beach: free of hawkers, great for kids and excellent for snorkeling. Highly recommend! Unrelated but useful: summer is 100° with 80% humidity, expensive and crowded. Best times are fall and spring. Bring bug spray, snorkel gear and water shoes. Book tours a week in advance online, save 15% and do 3 for the price of 2.

Friendly staff, great pool, ocean-side dining and bar. Great happy hour! The American breakfast was included in our room rate. It was very good and a great added convenience.

The location was quiet and away from a lot of the hustle and bustle of downtown and the main beach area of Pureto Vallarta. However, if you wanted to do anything outside of the resort, you had to take a public bus or a taxi to the downtown area. The bus is only 8 pesos (about $0.50) each, and the ride is only 10-15 minutes, but it is something to keep in mind. But it was worth it for the peace and quiet. The staff was attentive, and the food in the restaurant was good and very reasonably priced.

It is a timeshare property in addition to a hotel, so there will be a pitch to come to an ownership presentation. We declined, even though they were offering discounted tickets to events and experiences, because I value my time a lot more than that. There is also a huge push by two dozen or more people at the airport to get you to sign up to go to a timeshare presentation. You have to walk past all of these people to get outside after you get your bags to get to transportation. Just ignore all of them! A guy even told us that he worked for the airport and that we needed to talk to someone at the counter about our hotel. He worked AT the airport, not for it, and the guy at the counter he sent us to had nothing to do with our hotel. He was trying to set up an appointment to take us to a timeshare presentation. Believe me, the push from these people is overwhelming at the airport! Ignore them or tell them you have been to the are before and you are not interested and rush out!
