1.Well we had no water period the first day we got there!!! We had had a long trip and could not take a shower. The problem was fixed by next day, first got cold water and then later we got hot water.2. We were told by travel zoo that our package included breakfast valued at 21 dollar a day but the resort only honored the breakfast valued at 14 dollars per person..so false advertisement??

Main pool is too cold to use, but there is a heated second pool. Food is below average, intentionally bland for old people. Average demographic is older, as is the resort. Good value for what I paid Travelzoo, but wouldn't pay full rate.

The view and the sound of the waves are unforgettable! "American Breakfast" was included, and a great deal. All meals (and Happy Hour!) are served outside on the 1st level pool patio with an amazing view of the bay. The entire staff is outstanding. The U.S. and Canadian retired "Snowbirds" are charming, friendly, and welcoming. We did the gym, water aerobics class (warm, adult pool), and games daily. The tiny beach is covered in rocks, but pretty. The staff set up lounge chairs for us. You can rent kayaks, paddle boards, and snorkel gear. Go zip-lining with Canopy River! They pick you up in town. Overall, we felt pampered, comfortable, and relaxed. We were not interested in the larger resorts. Costa Sur was a wonderful home base for our stay in Puerto Vallarta.

We took the public bus (just 8 pesos!) down to town and back, about 12 minutes, many times (even at 10 PM). The town is wonderful and feels very safe. Souvenir avenues, pubs, galleries, and beautiful, small restaurants. Easy to walk from the bus to the beach boardwalk (Malecon), Zona Romantica, River Cafe on the little strip of Island in Rio Cuale, etc. We agreed to sit through a time share presentation at Costa Sur, which gave us 10% off our entire stay, 4 drinks, AND $150 USD off our bill (we put it toward an excursion, instead -- a fiesta and rodeo in the mountains! So fun!). We enjoyed the presentation because it was breakfast with just the two of us and Arturo, a local, from sales. Arturo gave us a great history of Puerto Vallarta. We didn't buy because we haven't decided about the kinds of vacations we might like to take after we're married, but the point system is a great deal -- and there's no maintenance fee.

The photos did not represent the hotel. The timeshares were the photos represented - not the actual hotel. Our rooms were not good.

The room was great. We had a one bedroom suite with a beautiful ocean view from our balcony where we could sit to eat morning or evening. There is a "lagoon" where we used the paddle boards and could snorkel without worrying about the waves. The staff there was incredible. When we go back we will definitely stay there. The location is perfect for the things we like to do.

There is a zip line, Nogalito that is about half a mile from Costa Sur that was terrific. A great experience at a great price. Staff there is also perfecto.

Very run down. We were here 10 years ago and the rooms are the same, very tired. Some areas of the exterior also need work, paint, sand added to the beach, etc
