The grounds are beautifully landscaped, the pools are crystal clear, the lounge chairs are comfortable and the pool side grill/bar serves delicious food & drinks. Need more space?
Fun Activites: Check out Vallarta Adventures brochure and other brochures at the PV Resort building (Tikal). This is the three-wing building. This is the main check-in/check-out for the Resort (not for Playa Royale unless you arrive late). Also located are car rental, currency exchange, trips, coffee/snack, bar, concierge and more. For assistance with all your fun activities contact Theresa Racine (she has always assisted us in finding activities. If she can’t then she will refer you to external contact).
If you try the dune buggy trip – plan to get dirty. Bring old t-shirt (not white), jean shirts, plastic bag for your camera (you will get wet), sun glasses that hugs your face (a lots of dust) and bandanna (to cover your mouth). Great fun!!
Teresa is a great source for restaurants and babysitters.
Water Taxi – travel from the PV Resort to the downtown marina in Puerto Vallarta.
Approx $12 USD/person (2006)
Taxi Info: Service from the Airport is approx 150 pesos (June 06 prices). The return from the Hotel is cheaper. Some additional general info (contact us for website)
Airports are federal zones by Mexican law. So, while any taxi can take you to the airport, only airport-authorized taxis (white) can take you from the airport to your destination. Regular (i.e., yellow) taxis are not allowed to pick up passengers at or near the airport. Flat rates for the airport-authorized taxis are pre-established by zone and paid in advance at the airport. Expect to pay a much higher rate when using an airport taxi, as compared to a regular taxi. Tipping the driver is not necessary, unless you expect him to assist you with your luggage at your destination. Alternatively, Puerto Vallarta's urban bus lines heading north and south make regular stops on the main road next to the airport.
Social Membership: Is a fixed fee for a family. I believe it is $75 UDS (2006).
Alternate guests, other than the owner will be required to pay the appropriate Social Membership user assignment fee upon Check In at Playa Royale. . This will entitle the “alternate guest(s)” to use all the facilities at the resort, i.e., gym, spa facilities and golf course. Please note some items (massage, golf, etc) are fee based. The Easiest process is as follows:
The Check-In Desk at Playa Royale. You and your family can have your photo taken and pay the appropriate Social Membership user assignment fee.
HOUSEKEEPING-- Your unit shall be clean upon arrival. Additional housekeeping services are available to you at an additional cost. Please contact housekeeping @ Playa Royale to arrange for any of additional services. If a guest is staying a full week, there will be a FREE mid-week cleaning (no linen change).
Playa Royale as part of Paradise Village Resort and Spa, is located approx 8KM North of the Puerto Vallarta International Airport. Taxi service is the best means of transportation. Service from the Airport is approx 150 pesos (June 06 prices). However, the return from the hotel is generally cheaper..
As an alternative to the conventional transfer, use a private taxi service. I've used the following service at the airport. Transporte Especial : email@example.com Contact: Rebecca Maldonado. In May 2008 the prices for 1-3 person(s) was $24 USD ( cash only) to PV. This was standard service, i.e. without water or other
beverages. With VIP service, the cost is $3.00 extra per person and a hostess will greet you with your
beverage. In both cases, an agent will meet you at the baggage claim or after going thru customs.
PV’s new business complex (opening scheduled last quarter 2009), will include a Medical Center w/emergency services, banks, lawyers & doctors and Starbucks.
Golf: -- El Tigre Golf & Country Club – Sunday brunch, very very nice, great views, fixed price. It opens at 10AM & Reservations may be important.
-- El Tigre Golf Club (The Tiger) is famous for its innovative design and its great blending with the surrounding nature along its 18 holes which was designed by well-known Texas golf course architect Robert Von Hagge,
