A yacht-lover's delight, Vidafel Marina-Vallarta is on Puerto Vallarta's sparkling harbor, moments from the marina. For golfers, the famous Campo de Golf is less than a half-mile away. Enjoy the nearby beach or plan a day of fun at the water park with slides and three pools on site.

.We stayed here for 2 weeks in 2012 the first half of November. The temp of the pool was great, not cold like some places. One of the reviews said the beds were hard, maybe they replaced the mattresses, they were fine. There are lots of small and large iguanas around, sometimes the big ones will cruse just a few feet from your lounge chair by the pool

We stayed 1 week at the Mayan and loved it. The location was perfect for being somewhat away from all the busy areas yet still be able to walk to restaurants and bars at the marina. Every kind of food is readily available. Across the street is a great restaurant for breakfast at The yatch club. The rooms were very comfortable for us, having couch and sitting area and a separate bedroom. Only downside was very small refrigerator (hotel room size) and no balcony to sit out on. Lots of areas by pool and beach to sit. If you are looking for partying place this is not it.

We stayed at the Mayan in marina Vallarta. the property is great. Be prepared to go to Walmart & buy one of those egg-carton foam pads for the bed, because they are hard as slate. AND don't participate in their Timeshare presentation, at the Grand Mayan in Nueva Vallarta. We were told that it was going to be approximately 90 minutes, we were offered 500 pesos credit per person to our bill if we attended, there was 5 of us. The man who was our salesperson, Gill, was very pushy, said very inappropriate jokes to my In-laws, and kept telling us that all the time share's included golf, even though we told him we don't play golf. he was pleasant enough to start, but when it was apparent that we weren't go to buy into the timeshare, he got more and more upset, even insulting. He told us by law that he could keep us there for 7 hours. We were there for almost 6. They did NOT want to let us go.

I stayed at the mayan palace marina vallarta and just LOVED it!! You will no longer be put across the street as others have written in the reviews. Those days are now long ago. There is also no 1 in 5 rule, as another person wrote??? The sea garden and water park are no more, demolished for room for a new grand mayan. This place has location, location, location. Stroll to the marina, across the road and enjoy many resturants and shops. A bus stop at the street also, for downtown adventure. Fishing, of course! This is my fav mayan palace location.

We were here on 9/11 which sort of put a damper on things, but the staff was sympathetic and people were allowed to stay over (couldn't fly out) for just the maintenance fee.

We had a balcony view of the pools and ocean from the main building which was lovely and ate many meals in the excellent restuarant.

I am not giving 5 stars because the kitchens are not up to what the US resorts would offer. Some of the listings on this site claim to have washer/dryers but we did not. The liviing room furniture was not comfortable for me and the lighting discouraged reading.

As for the people selling time shares--if you have the patience, you can do a lot for free! And it is interesting to visit the other resorts. (Well, OK, we bought at Mayan. You can't win them all.)

------ Update: Looking at the pictures now posted here, I believe the furniture has been replaced with more cheerful decor. Wonderful! We were in Puerta Vallarta in November 2006 and stayed next door at Winston Regina because we had rented out Mayan. We went over to visit Mayan since we own there and got into a presentation. (Some people swim and play golf.) Anyhow, we upgraded to Mayan Regency (whatever that is) but, more important, got into a program which reduces or eliminates maintenance fees for owners 75 and up. Fantastic! We already qualify! This is an idea that more resorts should consider.
