Puerto Vallarta Photo Fakeout: It's a pool party!
Another tranquil pool taken over by guests! Based on the hotel's website, the pool area is calm and there are plenty of lounge chairs to come by. That's not always the case, especially during spring break season, when this hotel becomes very popular with college-aged kids. It's bad enough the pool can get pretty packed, but it's even worse that it's crowded with loud, rowdy, drunk college kids (silver lining -- this is good news if you ARE one of those drunk college kids).
Also, warning: Marketing photos are often outdated! See the white walls in the marketing photos? They were pinkish-brown when we visited in 2013.
