I was in Puerta Vallarta in June last year.

Not the friendliest place I've been to.

It was a busy working city.

Not the sanctuary of paradise I was expecting.

Very disappointed.

So many arrogant people.

I was moved twice from room to room in 2 weeks.

Each time the Staff at "Secrets" said it was for building repairs.

Each time a Wedding Party with 4 adjoining rooms moved in.

The Hotel told my tour operator it was my own fault for asking to be moved.
