Puerto Vallarta is a destination that offers endless possibilities to all age ranges, so if you are traveling with kids you can be sure that they will have a great time there! However, it is important to make the right choice when looking for that kid friendly hotel where your children can make the most of their beach vacations in Mexico. So, we decided to check out the Trip Advisor Travellers’ Choice Awards 2013, for the best Kid Friendly Hotels in Puerto Vallarta and we got a bit surprised when finding out that the Playa Fiesta Beach Club & Hotel was considered as the #1 family hotel in Puerto Vallarta. The Playa Fiesta is a great hotel, but it is specialized in weddings. This is the perfect example of the user-generated content that sometimes fails to communicate the right message. Playa Fiesta was also the winner of the Travellers’ Choice Awards 2013 in the Small Hotels category, and probable that’s where the mistake came from.
After this long diversion, if you are coming to Puerto Vallarta we have to strongly recommend the Dreams Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa. This beautiful resort has it all, top-notch facilities, luxury amenities, extraordinary services for adults, and an outstanding Explorer’s Club for Kids. This club is a fully supervised program for children ages 3 to 12 that is included in the Unlimited Luxury package. The Explorer’s Club offers a different daily program based on science, nature and exploration, and provides an amazing
playground area, treasure hunts, video games, giant TV, storytelling, sand castle contests, big screen movies under the stars and a weekly camp out! All Explorer’s Club staff are trained and certified, and additional safety standards include non-lockable doors, padded floors and rounded corners. Add all that to the wide array of activities available such as laser tag or the jungle and river tour, and to the stunning beach and swimming pool area, and your kids will have the time of their lives here.
Another great lodging option in the Vallarta area for traveling with kids is the Grand Mayan Hotel, which it’s actually located in Nuevo Vallarta at the heart of Riviera Nayarit, less than 10 minutes away from the Puerto Vallarta International Airport. The Grand Mayan is a paradise for your kids. Just imagine the face of your children when he or she discovers the Mayan pyramid that doubles as a water slide, or the lazy river that travels across the jungle vegetation! The Grand Mayan has a Kid’s Club available for children from 5 to 12, and it also offers babysitting available upon request. The place is filled with fun attractions for the little ones, besides the pyramid and the lazy river, it also boasts a wave pool, a beach trampoline and rock wall, a water park, and lots of beach and pool activities.
We can assure that your kids will not want to leave neither the Dreams Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa, nor The Grand Mayan Nuevo Vallarta. And well, if you are planning to get married in the region, you might want to take a look at the Playa Fiesta Beach Club & Hotel.
