A blissful all-suite escape in Puerto Vallarta

If headed down to the sunny city of Puerto Vallarta, a great choice for accommodations is the Playa del Sol Costa Sur. This beautiful 208 unit all-suite resort is just five minutes from the south side of Puerto Vallarta, and every suite has a lovely ocean view. Its two towers include junior suites, one and two bedroom units, all with kitchens. Playa del Sol Costa Sur has a unique breakwater directly in front of the resort, forming a lagoon which provides safe and tranquil swimming on a protected beach-- ideal for travelers with children. The resort also has two pools, two bars and an ocean view restaurant, “La Cascada.” In addition, the property offers Spanish lessons, classes to learn how to skin dive, water aerobics, and a popular option on the making of the perfect Mexican-style margarita. The hotel also boasts a mini-mart, a spa, gym and an internet center. Playa del Sol Costa Sur is a perfect choice for anyone who loves Puerto Vallarta and also wants quick access to explore one of the most beautiful areas of Banderas Bay. The resort’s location is nearby to the beautiful south shore where jungle covered mountains and idyllic rivers surround gorgeous beaches. The coast road leads to Mismaloya where “The Night of the Iguana” was filmed and then to Boca de Tomatlan, a small fishing village where you can easily charter a boat to the beautiful beaches south of Vallarta, which are inaccessible to vehicles. We felt blissfully secluded from the always charming but sometimes noisy Puerto Vallarta, yet when shopping, dining and nightlife beckoned us, the resort is located just ten minutes from the always lively boardwalk stroll know as the “Malecon,” recently voted by residents and tourists alike as the "place to see and be seen" in Vallarta.
