A week at Nuevo Vallarta Mayan Palace

A February 2006 trip to Nuevo Vallarta by kay felmer

Quote: The Mayan Palace is a resort with everything a resort could offer, but it is too large and spread out for my taste, and the architecture is too contemporary and plain for my taste. It didn't have any traditional Mexican warmth.

A week at Nuevo Vallarta Mayan Palace

Overview

We really enjoyed the day long trip on the Santa Maria boat. The crew was very entertaining, and included continental breakfast, snorkeling at Los Arcos(which was a disappointment), open bar, horse back riding for an extra , and lunch on the beach (drinks extra). We also really enjoyed the Rhythms of the Night booked through Vallarta Adventures. It was an evening sunset cruise with open bar and snacks on board, with a program of dance and dinner buffet with drinks on shore. For going to a timeshare presentation at the Flamingo Resort (which we loved), we got 4 free tickets for the Santa Maria cruise, and 4 half priced tickets for the Rhythms of the Night. They have a little stand up by the Sun Marke...Read More

We had the breakfast buffet, which was good, but they kept running out of certain foods. I never did get any French toast, they were making more at one time, but by the time I went back up, it was all gone again. They also had only a half a bagel when I went through the line. The food was okay, but not as good as the breakfast buffet at the Cafe del Lago.

We ate the breakfast buffet here twice. The first time was a part of their timeshare sales presentation, and we liked it well enough to come again. They offered fresh fruit, bakery, made to order omelets and eggs, waffles, pancakes, Mexican entrees, a juice bar and cold cereals. It was a nice selection and priced at about $15.

We really enjoyed this restaurant- good food, reasonable prices. It was also the only restaurant within walking distance of the resort. Lunch menu is mainly sandwiches with more options for dinner menu. I can recommend the prawn appetizer, hamburgers and the meatball sandwich for lunch, and the pizza served at night.

This was recommended by the cab driver, and we were not disappointed. Without directions, we would not have found it on our own. Open dining on the ocean with good food at reasonable prices. It is south of the shopping square along the beach, just ask for directions. On Wednesdays they offer a steak buffet for only $15. Just watch out for the green stuff served with nacho chips- it is jalapeno sauce and not guacamole.

This is a couple blocks off the main shopping streets. They are known for their large Margaritas-one is enough. The food was good and the make fresh guacamole right at the table, which was very good. We had a cab take us right there, otherwise it may have been hard to find on our own.
