    Great Entertainment, Bad A/C


    This was part of the package we bought. The hotel was located in the marina, and it was an all-inclusive resort with nightly entertainment.

    Now, first of all the problem was we went at the end of June, which is like being in a sauna with a jacket on, especiallyfor us sensitive skinned Canadians...:). We were originally stuck in a room on the 6th floor that looked more like a storage room with one bed and a shower, but the next day we said we wanted to move because we wanted a balcony and we were given this amazing suite on the first floor with a kitchenette. Only problem was neither of the rooms had a/c, and the kitchenette didn't have a fridge. That, along with the fact that the pool was warmer than my bathtub, made for a very uncomfortable visit.

    The entertainment was amazing, the food was ok (different themes each night), and the staff were very friendly (sometimes too much so).

    All in all, it was a good place, however I think the weather dampened our spirits somewhat.

    Unique Quality: Great view of the Marina and all of the boats coming in and out.

    Relaxation...and Fun


    The Club Embarcadero is a great Hotel. I stayed in a 3 bed hotel room, and it was nice...on the 6th floor with balcony...amazing view. the hotel rooms overlook the Marina and the pool. At the Embarcadero there are 2 sides to the hotel, there is the Marina side ( where Most of the hotel rooms are, Pools (2) Resturant and Bar) and the Ocean side ( which is right across the street ( more pools (3) on this side as well, resturant and of course the Ocean)
    There is always activities going on in and around the Hotel...From Water Arobics, Tequilla Volleyball....all the way to Dancing Lessons. They have all the Activities on a board so you always know what time they will be taking place.
    Breakfast in the morning is from 7:00am till 11:00am, Snacks from 11:00am till Noon Lunch 12:30 till 4:00pm At dinner it is held in a large theatre area, where they have live entertainment whille you eat. Dinner is a buffet everynight ( the dinners are all themes as well ex: Mexican, Ittalian, Chinesse...etc )
    Most importaint about the hotel, is that it is a great place to relax, the staff is outstanding!! ( very friendly! ) This hotel is a 4 star hotel, But I give it a 5!!

    Unique Quality: they have 2 swim-up bars in the hotel, it comes in handy when it is hot out!!!

    Directions: 5 minutes from the Airport

More about Club Embarcadero Pacifico

A very nice 3 Star Resort

by A TripAdvisor Member

Our family had an enjoyable visit to the Club Embarcadero Pacifico in Puerto Vallarta : keep in mind this is a Three Star Resort, and you will be fine. If your family requires posh accommodations, then you should look toward a 4 or 5 star resort.

Did you know these are TWO sister resorts? The Embarcadero is on the Marina side, and the Pacifico is on the Ocean side. You are free to come and go, as you please. Your colored bracelet allows you to eat at BOTH resorts.

This resort is well set up for families. Our 2 daughters ages l0 and 11 had a great time. (in fact, our l0 year old cried for 2 days, after we left)

Here is a sample for activites on Thursday:

l0 am Spanish Lessons l0.30 Stretching 11 am Water volleyball 11 am Bike Tour 12 noon Aquaerobica 1:00 Bingo 2:00 Water Polo 4:00 Steps Aerobics 4:30 Dance Class 4:30 Water volleyball Mexican Fiesta 9:00pm at the Outdoor Live Theater & Buffet (on-site)

We had a Junior Suite, which included 2 double beds, plus a Day Bed (which could sleep l child) We really didn;t want to use the Kitchenette - we had the all inclusive, plus the Kitchen was not set up (no dishes, plates, etc) You could make a cup of coffe, but that's about it.

We found very few of the pools in Mexico are heated, so the fact that the Embarcader pools are not heated, are really not that unusual.

The swim=up bar is lots of fun, even the kids could swim up for cokes and sprites.

The restaurant is right on the Marina and quite pleasant. although the food is adequate, after 3 days, both my husband and I were tired of it.

Normally, my husband and I stay at 4 Star resorts, so we were not in love with the place. YET, for a 3 Star resort, we felt everything represented very good value.

good place

I just came back for a holliday in Puerto Vallarta and it was great, this hotel has really improve since my last visit. I just want to come back.

Great vacation

by A TripAdvisor Member

I just returned from a 3 night 4 day vacation from Club Embarcadero, It's an all inclusive resort and it was awesome!!! We had no problems whatsoever at the hotel. The rooms were VERY nice and clean and the staff was always friendly and helpful (to people who were friendly with them.) The food was not in the least bit bad and the idea of being able to go to the bar and get whatever I wanted was great. I have to admit the pool was a little cold but that was one minor kink in an otherwise perfect vacation. I think the majority of the reviews that are negative were written by somewhat racist white people. If you don't like Mexican's then don't go to Mexico.....

Good resort if you don't pay full price

by A TripAdvisor Member

Just returned from one week at Club Embarcadero with my wife and three boys. We got our trip for a good price so we went with an open mind.
The hotel rooms were nice and the hotel was clean..However our son's gameboy advance system w/5 games went missing from our room. Service was poor unless you were a Mexican. Tips were expected for everything even tho they were supposed to be included in our pkg price. In Canada we tip based on good service but here service was based on our tips.
The pool was incredibly cold so the kids spent very little time in the pool. The food was blah and you could never tell what it was.

Bad experience

by TripAdvisor Member trontlink

If you want attenetion to detail don't go to Embaracadero. We waited 3 days for our room and moved 2 times before we got it! The front desk doesn't know what's going on and we had to ask for clean towels. The food was not very good either. We had a really bad experience there.


by A TripAdvisor Member

A wonderful hotel to stay in if you are looking for relaxation, warm & friendly staff. If you are looking to party this is not the place for you, but if you want good service, decent food, and Spanish lessons from the staff, this is definitely one of the best places.

a badly kept up place

by TripAdvisor Member Jane411

Here is our experience during our 5-day stay over the xmas-new year vacation. Day 1. Waited for an hour to get our room, which was not the kind we booked and have to move. No water at night, no warning either.
Day 2. No hot water. By the way, warm water is our only hope. Not even that. Day 3. Coffee maker quit working. Day 4. No towel service at the pool at the villa side. We walked to the main hotel side and was told towel service is only availabe between 9-5 at the main pool. Day 5. We went to the main pool at about 12 pm, was told "sorry, towels are all out".

This place is so badly kept up. In our little one-bed room suit, we found: TV with no remote. Lamp was broken with shade hanging on one side. Shower curtain rod was corroded. Door knobs was not in place. Out door showers have no shower heads. Electric wires hanging out along the side walk. Have to dial local calls through operator.

We hated to go back to the hotel each day, never know what will go wrong.
