    hey all....

    we're getting hitched in january and it seems like alot of large houses/villas i was hoping family and friends could get together and rent are already booked.

    so now i'm searching for a cool, out of the way (the wedding is in Nuevo Vallarta and we are most likely staying in Bucerias) hotel to reserve some rooms at. mostly everyone doesn't want to be stuck in some HUGE sprawling resort fighting for a beach chair, so if you know of a cool place on the north side that isn't boutique-y and terribly expensive, i'm all ears.

    cheers!

      I was looking for a smaller, intimate resort as well. I found Playa Fiesta Hotel and Beachclub and could not be happier with our choice! We are getting married there in February. Lindsay and Adam (the owners and WC) have been wonderful to work with so far. I am not sure how close it is to Nuevo Vallarta, though?? There was also an 18 room minimum block required for us, but we are having our wedding there. I'm not sure if the block is still required without having a wedding there? May be worth looking into...

      Good Luck! Jackie

        I would also recommend Playa Fiesta if they have space available... Good luck!

            I found the Playa del Sol Grand in Nuevo Vallarta is not that big and they have hotel rooms and 1 and 2 bedrooms suites with kitchenettes... and they offer also an AI if you want it, you can check it out.

              It's not on the north end of PV, it's more central but it was so absolutely amazing, I must recommend it. We went for dinner only, however, it is a boutique hotel with beautiful amenities:
              Hacienda San Angel - Puerto Vallarta hotel, Puerto Vallarta boutique hotel, Puerto Vallarta Bed and Breakfast

              I must add that it's tricky to find, but once you get there, it's worth it!

                This hotel looks absolutely beautiful but very pricey... too bad, I would love to stay there!

                    I am staying and getting married at the Royal Decameron. I haven't been there yet so I can't say it is super good but for a week there it only cost us about 600 to 700 each to get there with flight and everyting.. it is an AI too. the wedding is cheap too.

                    I went on the grounds at Samba and it's a smaller resort in Nuevo Vallarta. It's really taken care of and it didn't look as busy as the Rius (which we stayed at).
