We stayed at the Mayan Palace in Neuvo Vallarta. Mayan Palace is situated on acres and acres of beacfront property.

We had a one bedroom unit. We stayed in the oldest building...but the location was great. Right by the pool, canoes, and beach. The unit was clean and had a small refridgerator, 2 burner stove, microwave, and dishes. Sleeping accommodations included a king bed and two sofas which had trundles underneath (easily slept 6 people). The maids came everyday and will even turn the beds for you. The resort is very spacious. You can go for nice long walks and be surrounded by lakes, ponds, pool and beaches. The pool is the largest in Mexico.

This place is awesome. You can watch the beautiful sunset and delicious dinner of the freshest seafood or authentic Mexican cuisine. They have 56kg lobsters and they are located right on the beach, just south of the footbridge in the beautiful little town of Bucerias.

We ate at both Tumtah's and Bakal Restaurants. Both places are great! Tumtah's has a three layer chip and salsa pre-appetizer that includes cerviche (fresh fish salsa). Bakal has an awesome breakfast buffet which has everything you can think of (french toast, pancakes, cooked to order omelets, fresh fruits, made to order juices, etc). They also have an awesome lobster buffet dinners.

The beach is just a step away from the pool. It's very nice and clean and somewhat private since Nuevo Vallarta is a gated community. I saw no vendors at the Mayan Palace beach. You can also check out Boogie boards or rent Jet Skis.
