The Barceló Puerto Vallarta is the perfect all-inclusive resort for your destination wedding or family vacation i.e. active yet with enough quiet places to relax. The food & drinks are great & the service is excellent. For wedding couples who wish to feel special, the Barceló Puerto Vallarta only allows one wedding per day & has a prefect beach area for it. This resort has been awarded the AAA 4 Diamond award since 2008.
A 15 minute drive south of Puerto Vallarta on Mismaloya Bay, where the mountains meet the sea, the Barceló Puerto Vallarta & its secluded location will not disappoint. It is this beach area that put Puerto Vallarta on the map with the 1964 filming of The Night of the Iguana starring Eva Gardner & Richard Burton with glamorous wife Elizabeth Taylor in tow. 20 years later, Predator was also filmed close by.
Having spent Christmas 2016 here with my husband & our two teenagers on the 8th floor club level in a 2 bedroom suite, we were charmed. The 317 all suite Barcelo Puerto Vallarta is the prefect size resort. The large 2 bedroom suites are great for families. My recommendation is to splurge on the Club level suite. You reside on higher floors with amazing ocean & mountain views + access to the club lounge which offers special appetizers & higher end liquor. If you are not a tequila lover you will be after sampling the top shelf tequila in the club lounge.
The resort is built up 9 floors not spread out like many of the mega all-inclusive resorts. If you always take the steps as I did, your workout is done. Next to the resort is the small village of Mismaloya which is also fun to walk about.
For great ideas on family vacations & destination weddings, give me a call.
