Resort is beautiful. Huge 1BR Villa in the Grand Luxxe with huge balcony. Pics don't do it justice. That's where the glowing review ends. Guest/renting you will not get a view of the ocean. Reserved for owners as it should be. Our first week was in Tower 5. A lot of construction going on for expansion. 1 location right outside our villa. You knew it was 7am because you were awaken by the noise 7 days a week. Many guests were complaining. They moved us to Tower 3 the second week. You could hear the evening entertainment from the Santorium that continued until 1am every night. The resort is so large you have to shuttle a lot. Average waiting time 2-4 minutes except for the pro shop and spa. Usually 5-8 mins. Lovely walks along the board walkways. Signs directing you along the way. The biggest negative was the time it takes from your accommodations to play golf or tennis. You check into the pro shop for tennis. Allow 45 minutes from your room to departure from the pro shop. You can not walk to the tennis courts without going to the pro shop. There are 2 nice lighted tennis courts for 1000's of guests. There is no problem getting a lesson with the pro who is pretty good or reserving courts. The ten 3-hole executive golf course is beautiful and fun to play. You do walk from pro shop to hole 1. We were there 2 weeks and big basketball fans. No satellite TV in the rooms. Most resorts in the area have it. So we couldn't get NCAA basketball games. All the channels are in Spanish (ESPN, etc) except Fox News (US English version), a couple of kids channels and a movie channel. We were only interested in basketball. No Olympics, even in Spanish. You could go to La Cantina, sports bar, to see American sports. They were very accommodating to put your team on a TV where you were sitting. Lots of choices. The mega TV behind the bar had the olympics. The food was very good there. La Cantina and Custom Made Burgers were our favorite places. For us we prefer a small resort. We spent too much time getting where we were going and getting the charges correct on our bill. Right hand didn't know what the left hand was doing. The restaurants and market were always correct. The spa and golf perks that came with our rental were never charged correctly. With a lot of time & effort on our part we got it corrected. Nice and helpful but a lot of time correcting it. David was very helpful and responded to all my questions promptly.
Thanks, Nancy, for submitting a review. I'm glad to hear that you found the villa spacious and the resort beautiful. I'm sorry that you didn't get the high floor, ocean view location that you were hoping for. As I explained at the time of booking, all of the Grand Luxxe 1-Bedroom Villa units have identical floor plans, interior furnishings, etc, and the actual unit locations are assigned the week of check-in (this is the case for all owners and guests). As a Platinum owner, most of my guests have been happy with their unit allocation (several have had high floor, ocean view), but the resort will not make guarantees regarding unit location in advance to any owner, regardless of status. I"m also sorry that you found getting to the tennis courts and golf courses to be inconvenient and that you were wishing that the resort was smaller - if you decide to return, I can give you some tips on how to better navigate around the resort more efficiently. Regarding the in-room cable TV coverage of American sports, the sports channels tend to show events with more of an international appeal, such as NFL, NBA, MLB, soccer, etc, rather than NCAA events. Thanks again for booking - I hope you have a great rest of 2018. Best, David
It was Paradise, absolutely Stunning Resort.
My wife and I and our 14 yr old daughter stayed in Building 3 , in a beautiful one bedroom suite from Dec 23 2017 to Jan 6 2018.. The grounds were spectacular and the suite was very large and clean. There were lots of pools to sit by and the many of the restaurants on the property were excellent . Everyone was so friendly. We rented from David Bain and he delivered on every promise . If we had any questions we would send David a text and he would reply to us within minutes . We had a wonderful time and the weather was spectacular. We look forward to returning next Christmas.
Thank you David

Another amazing trip!
Our 2nd trip travelling and renting through David at the Grand Luxxe and it was just as wonderful as our first trip only this time we had a beautiful ocean view :) This won't be our last trip and already planning the next one. Thank you!!
Thanks, Tisa, for your review. I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay for the second year in a row. Feel free to contact me again if you need help with your future travel plans. Best, David
Wonderful family vacation
This was our third time staying at Grand Luxxe Nuevo Vallarta and first time renting through David Bain. All of our expectations were met: we got a fab building, a high-up floor as promised, and platinum status, which gave us access to all of the property's pools, among other things. Amazing family vacation that is great for kids and adults and alike.David was helpful and professional throughout!
Thanks, Shawna, for taking the time to write a review and for your kind words. I'm glad to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay and the Platinum benefits. Feel free to reach out again if you want to return in the future. Best, David
Beautiful property, over the top accommodations and top notch service from all.
I was exceptionally happy with the Grand Luxxe at Vidanta, Nuevo Vallarta. The suite we stayed in was beautiful, great bedroom, bath and living area, along with a huge deck. I have worked in the hotel industry for 30 years and this is the one of the best vacations I've had... ever. And normally when you go to a resort, you expect "resort pricing" for food and beverage. Not the case here - breakfast and lunches were reasonable, and dinner for 8 ppl cost anywhere from $250 to $300 US including alcohol. Compare that with Hawaii or the Bahamas and it's much more reasonable. Finally, the staff were some of the friendliest I've come across in my travels; and David, the gentleman we booked the Villa with was very responsive and everything he described was spot on. Book this Villa; it will be worth it.
Thanks, Lennie, for taking the time to write a review and for the kind words. I'm glad that someone with your background in the travel industry had such a great experience at the Grand Luxxe. Have a great 2017! Best, David
First class FANTASTIC vacation!
We are a family of 3 traveling with a 7 year old and the Grand Luxxe was exactly what we were looking for in a vacation. Our 1 bedroom villa was more than enough space for us and the accommodations exceeded luxury meeting our needs in every way.
David was a great host. He is attentive and happy to answer all questions in a timely manner. We can't wait to rent from him again.
Thanks, Tisa, for taking the time to write a review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and found the unit to be a good fit for your family. Feel free to contact me in the future if you want to return to this location or if you want to visit any of my other vacation rental properties. Best, David
Situated on Mexico's Pacific coast just north of Puerto Vallarta, Nuevo Vallarta is nestled along the Bahía de Banderas, one of the world's largest natural bays, and surrounded by the lush green jungle vegetation of the Sierra Madre mountain peaks. It's an area known for its natural beauty, wide beaches with fine white sand, and unique flora and fauna including humpback whales and sea turtles.
