Joyce Malkenson, our Cincinnati Regional Sales Manager, just returned with the team from Puerto Vallarta. We were able to get her impressions of Puerto Vallarta.
I was so excited to be visiting Puerto Vallarta. It had been years since I had been there, but I had strong memories of how much I loved this destination and how truly distinct it was. I stepped off the plane and was immediately impressed as to how modern the airport was and how easy it was to navigate.
As soon as we began driving toward the resort, I was instantly reminded of the unique charm and beauty of this destination. Charming is the operative word……..from the cobblestone streets of the waterfront area to the unique shops and restaurants you are enticed. There is no lack of things to do if you want to spend time away from the resort and in fact, I recommend a day and an evening exploring all the town has to offer.
Pulling up to Secrets Vallarta Bay/Now Amber was breathtaking. From the moment I walked in to the entry and felt the bay breezes and saw the inviting lobby bar, I was hooked! Clean, light and airy is the feel throughout these properties. The suites only add to the building enthusiasm. You open the door and see immediately out to the lapping waves of the bay and the incredible pool areas. The suite itself is all about comfort and openness and I wanted to jump onto the beautiful chaise lounge and immediately relax…so I did! The room has amazing views from all angles, a Jacuzzi tub and a huge, fluffy bed. This was one of the nicest rooms I have ever experienced.
The highlights of the trip came at night when I sat on the balcony looking over the pool area— the many pools were lit up and the turquoise colors were amazing. A special light near the water reflected on the backs of the perfectly aligned beach chairs and it all looked like a piece of artwork. You could see the whitecaps and hear the waves lapping and it was always a perfect ending to each wonderful day.
Having the two resorts side by side, one for adults only and one for families provides a perfect venue for any wedding, reunion or family group. I will be recommending them to everyone I can. What a great resort!
Thanks Joyce! Stay tuned to this blog for a review of Secrets Vallarta Bay Puerto Vallarta & Now Amber Puerto Vallarta from our Philadelphia regional sales manager.
