We stayed in Puerto Vallarta last September during our honeymoon. We spent 19 days in the BB Gateway.
I can really recommend this place.?The food here really is fantastic!! (I run a restaurant so I know what I'm talking about. The rooms here were amazing and the staff in the bar and the waiters were really friendly.
The excursions are great. I can really recommend the dolphin swim as it's a great experience. I can also recommend the San Blas tour (the animals are interesting and the scenery is lovely, they even have crocodiles). There's a bus stop near the hotel and public transport is really cheap (busses go into town and to the Marina).
We will definitely come and stay here again. One more thing: for the people who don't like the food here. Go to Blackpool and have a bag of soggy chips with vinegar.?The food here is amazing and this type of food would fetch hundreds of pounds in?a top restaurant in London..
