2021-01-14 Vidanta to offer on-site Covid tests - All resorts

DLNorlin asked the question: Why doesn't Vidanta offer Covid tests for guests during their stays in Nuevo Vallarta? It seems either Vidanta was listening or management was thinking the same thing at the same time. The bottom line is guests now have an option to be tested at the resort to satisfy government regulations for retuning home. Prices are included in this post. Stay tuned....

The author provides a fair and understandable discussion about what a timeshare is. We have overlaid our knowledge of the Grand Luxxe Timeshare for comparison. Although not a scientific study, the article is a good foundation from which to grow.

2021-01-09 Just through self quarrantine after a week in Nuevo Vallarta between Christmas and New Years... The entire visit was great although activities were impacted as expected by the pandemic. The staff was working very hard at maintaining the adjusted procedures involving sanitizing, etc. We even upgraded our membership before leaving. However, the stain on what was a great trip was at departure. The exit stations were drastically understaffed and those attempting to make flights and meet travel deadlines in leaving went from patient to panic as they were forced to wait as much as 30 minutes to an hour or more for taxis, luggage retrieval, etc. All attempts at distancing were abandoned and it was the most chaotic experience we've had in our nearly 15 years as members. Disappointing end for what would have been a fantastic week. Be warned and plan an extra hour or even more from the time you arrive at the departure center to actually being on the road to anywhere, and none of that takes into account any other time spent in leaving the property.

2021-01-05 Happy New Year everyone.

We plan to be at the resort in April and heard today that it is possible that the Nayar course may be back to an 18 hole course. I would be interested to see any photos and written updates on the upcoming plans for those on the property this month. Thanks for your help.

2020-12-11 Hola All,

Occupancy continues to increase as restrictions are easing up. As we get closer to the Christmas and New Years weeks, The Mexican Government has given the ok to increase occupancy to 75%. I believe we will remain around 50% until further notice. Our cleanliness protocol has been adhered to very strictly. For the most part, guest satisfaction has been at an all time high which is encouraging.

Exciting times here in Nuevo Vallarta as several construction projects are set to open.

Beach town which is our beach club, restaurant district, and pool areas is set open this weekend. We and the opportunity to tour this area and it is a wonderful way to spend the day. Hotels says this weekend. There were some final touches that needed to complete before this opening, so it could be delayed(a short delay of anywhere from a day to a week).

The gondola is still going through its certification process. The public is not yet allowed to use the gondola yet, but we all believe soon. Once the developer releases the gondola to the hotel and public you will know. This impressive ride will take you from the beach to the santuario, to the residence tower and then onward to the park. In total, the ride lasts about 20 minutes. You will be able to see the entire resort from the gondola, from sea garden to the airport and across the highway.

Estates is still off limits to everyone except the construction crew. I have asked countless times to go into the site, but the entire property is under construction with the final month of finishing the first phase. The estates grounds with common areas will still be worked on as our first guests enjoy the villas. May 15th is the official opening as the common areas will be open and there will not be visible construction(even though there will be more construction on different parts of the property.).

Have a great day!
