Costa Sur Resort & Spa’s guest rooms, decorated with vibrant colors and native touches, have balconies overlooking the water. Spacious suites feature full-service kitchens and dining areas. 

Guests have access to one of the few private beaches on Banderas Bay and an ocean lagoon with a rock barrier that works as a natural reef, perfect for snorkeling and scuba diving. Guests can hike eight different waterfalls in the mountains while bird watching. There are two on-site pools: a quiet adults-only pool and a family pool with an ocean view. An on-site kids club is also available. Seahorse Snack Bar and Barefoot Bar are lively spots for happy hour after a long spa or beach day. 

Puerto Vallarta was recently named one of the best cities in the world by Conde Nast Traveler, and guests are a short 10-minute drive from attractions like the Playa Los Muertos beachfront, the Malecon oceanfront boardwalk with restaurants, bars, performers and art installations and Old Puerto Vallarta, known as the Romantic Zone.

Get rid of the crappy old and broken chaise lounges around the pool and buy new ones that allow you to sit up.

Breakfast included was very nice. Got every lazy wonderful day off to a great start.

Very easy access to transportation. Unbelievable view. No loud parties or highway traffic sounds in our room—only the ocean rolling in and away.

The cove was not what was pictured. We were apparently in a renovated room but the finishing were subpar and we found small bugs throughout the room.

It's a resort, but low-key. No blaring techno music, no kids pigging out at an endless-burger bar, no hard sell on activities. Views from the rooms are incredible.
Other Comments
Staff is immensely friendly, and many have been there for years. Rooms are immaculate, if a bit dated in ways. A great choice for people who want to be away from the hotel district, but still close to the old city, especially those adventurous enough to prefer the bus over taxis.

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complaining about the first room we were given, they upgraded us to another room which had the same problem, dirty and outdated.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.
