Sip a cool drink and catch some rays by the pool at this laid-back tropical resort.
Barceló Puerto Vallarta is a destination unto itself, with an all-inclusive program providing drinks, dinners, entertainment, fitness and access to garden and poolside lounging areas. There are 316 rooms in the hotel; all have air-conditioning, coffee machines, televisions, mini-bars, safes and irons/ironing boards. For dining, try Spanish tapas in the Don Quijote restaurant or homemade gelato and Italian cuisine at Capri Restaurant. Sports range from water aerobics and archery to water polo and volleyball; other amenities include babysitting, 24-hour room service and Internet, all available for extra fees. The hotel convention center has a capacity for up to 800, and there are several function rooms available for various events. U-Spa offers salon services, massages, exfoliation and wraps, including a chocolate wrap designed to leave guests looking radiant. Seasonally, guests are invited to join in releasing newly hatched turtles on the Barceló Puerto Vallarta beach. Puerto Vallarta's tropical climate and rainforest make it a lovely location for both sunbathing and sightseeing. Mature Barceló Puerto Vallarta guests and those with children may wish to avoid making reservations during Spring Break, when the area fills up with young people looking to party all night.
