Grand Miramar Club & Spa

Postby foodie50 » Wed Mar 06, 2013 4:34 pm

We just returned from our first visit to Puerto Vallarta, a 6 day stay at Grand Miramar Club & Spa in Conchas Chinas (Feb 24-March 2 2013). We chose this hotel because it was such a deal relative to other hotels in the area. Including all taxes/charges, we booked online an almost 2,400 square ft 2-bedroom suite with stunning views of the Bay/Ocean from the hill. This huge suite could easily fit 2 couples with children. Included was a full kitchen and washer/dryer for clothes.

My guess as to why this suite was relatively cheap is that they have received such horrible reviews from time-share participants who have accused them of fraud, but surprisingly we were not approached for time-share at all during our stay. The hotel was quite empty, we only saw about 4 other couples the entire 6 days, which granted us even more personalized service.

The sky restaurant was truly excellent, with amazing views and wonderful food and service. The workout room also has a stunning view. The hot tub and pools were very nice. The massage was good and worth the 600 pesos, according to my lady friend. We were amazed by this luxurious hotel.

The roads to the hotel are steep and winding, making it near impossible to walk to town. A taxi ride to the malecon is 50 or 60 pesos.

There is construction slowly going on at the hotel. It wasn't loud, but we could not use the hot tub once. Also disappointing was the internet connection. Ocassionally we could connect, but mostly it was down or weak.

Overall, we absolutely loved this hotel and our entire stay in Puerto Vallarta!

Sorry, left that out. It was $200 per night, including tax and surcharges. Not cheap, but relatively cheap.

Two friends from Bowen Island near Vancouver, stayed there last night. We went up-up-up to join them for drinks and dinner. Fabulous place, mostly empty, large rooms. Fine selection of wine for 60 pesos a glass, margs and mojitos for 80 pesos. Dinner for four with lots to drink was 1350 pesos. Food prices reasonable. Only nationals were staff. Views tremendous. Comparable to Casa Isabel.

They got it on Priceline for $100 a night, not AI. They have to get down to the pier to connect with their 3-day yoga camp, then staying another night at the Westin. Apparently there is a free shuttle to The Blue Shrimp.

Is the restaurant open to non-guests?
