Krystal Puerto Vallarta, Puerto Vallarta: 1,234 reviews and 29 photos

We really loved our stay!

2 tennis courts although one needs serious help with surface reconditioning.
A 3 wall racket ball court
A small outdoor weight room with quite old equipment
A lap pool
A lounge pool with pool side access to a small bar
A free towel usage bar for the main pool area
A beach bar
A buffet restaurant inside a pyrimidal thatch roofed building with an omlette / waffle chef and views of the ocean.
Daily Cleaning staff that make towel gami ( we got an elephant and a swan and a flower )
Golf Cart luggage service direct to room

The grounds are quite large and the hotel has a nice empty feel to it. Never a problem getting a pool side lounge chair or even three together. There are many palm trees (barrel and coconut) through out the grounds.

The hotel is about a ten minute drive from downtown but is quite close to a major grocery store and far enough away from downtown to be quiet but close enough to be a quick cab ride away.

The rooms are generally quite large but older. Almost all of the rooms have a smoked in smell and some rooms have quite a terrible mold smell. We saw three different rooms during our stay as the first was not clean, the 2nd was unbearibly moldy smell and we settled in the third despite the smoke smell as it had a king bed and a nice view of the lap pool.

There is some construction going on now - supposed to be finished Nov 2008 though they had just finished covering over the 2007 with 2008 while we were there - but overall it isn't too loud or abnoxious.

Listed room prices were $247 per night but if you have a timeshare or know someone who does you get $70 a night coupons though you have to reserve in advance to ensure there will be room.
