Our very own Jean Kornbluth recently returned from a fabulous long weekend family celebration at the resort. She has not stopped raving about the resort and would highly recommend it to any and all people wanting an upscale experience in Mexico. She was there with 13 family members ranging in age from 21- 90 and everyone had a wonderful experience. She says the rooms are gigantic with wonderful balconies overlooking the three pools and the ocean. The staff is more than gracious and there is a marvelous food selection in their three gourmet restaurants. There is a large buffet poolside and is open 24 hours a day. Jean continues to tell us that she feels it is the perfect spot for a family vacation as everything is included, even the alcohol. The fact that it is a short 2-1/2 hour flight from Los Angeles to Puerto Vallarta makes it even more special.
