Best location in Puerto Vallarta

This Resort is located on the beach near so many great locations to explore all in walking distance to and to people watch. The best thing is you could just also walk to the beach and swim, eat and drink and just enjoy. All the people working at this elegant resort are friendly and helpful.

Wish we'd stayed longer

My husband, eight-year-old daughter, and I spent four nights at this resort.
The only thing is that we did not stay longer. Top of the line kitchen and the whole American resort association experience is better than we expected. Great selection of pools and other things.
Close to all the theme parks and was just perfect in every way.

Cabo time is the Best Time

This resort is centrally located to stores, beaches, and fishing. The area is spotless. The lobby bar is a highlight. The rooms meet expectations and then exceed what is out there.

The breakfast buffet - just plan on it and plan on going back to sleep was the best gained a few pounds, but you only live once.

Las vegas

My wife and I enjoyed a great vacation in Las Vegas over the Fourth of July holiday break we stayed at the Venetian for 4 nights. It was seamless . Before we joined my wife did all the work in setting things up but now all she had to do was focus on the fun stuff. We actually renewed our vows after 26 years with Elvis it was awesome.I don’t know if that is a good thing because I was exhausted when we got back home lol.

Thank You Vipul

My family just got back from Aruba, stayed at the Renaissance Aruba Ocean Suites; just 7 min away from the airport. Right away I knew this vacation was going to be different … I felted very safely. We got to the resort and were greeted as if we were celebrities’ Wow. Then we got our key the room was huge with a full kitchen separate bedrooms with Great ocean view and overlooking that blue clear water from out balcony. A family resort for sure… Every day we would eat breakfast and head to the marina 2 min walk and a boat always ready for us to take us to the Renaissance private island, we swam with flamingos. Just awesome! Come back swim the pool (swim-up of course). My words can’t describe it fully. 5 Star restaurants all included in the price may I add. We took an excursion to a natural pool and I actually jumped off the cliff into the water… Just amazing, once in a lifetime. Thank You, Vipul for recommending this resort!

Dear Michael,

John and I just returned for our vacation in Big Bear. It was nice that we could drive there and when you told us that it had a kitchen, John loaded the cooler with everything you could think of. The resort was great, and we went to some cool little restaurants here and there. The area was beautiful and not having to fly was great; we hate airports, and the drive was great. It took from Phoenix about 6 hours, and the trip was very scenic. American resorts association is excellent you guys deliver and we are pleased with our decision to join.

You were right about Cabo; it was terrific. We went snorkeling and played on jetskis. The cruise ships are so big when they sit in the bay and to go around them with a jetski was something let tell you. The kids loved the beach and the resort. We felt very relaxed and can't wait for the next vacay. When we first joined American resorts, we felt nervous. Now we cant wait to go back to Cabo. Oh yes, we saw Sammy Hager at Cabo Wabo. He was walking around; he was with a bunch of people, so we did not want to be a bother him even though Mike wanted a pic. But you are right; there are a lot of stars there. So cool.

To Michael

I was so hesitant at first when we joined. I even told my husband that we made a mistake. He said to have them book a vacation and just try it. The resort was the most beautiful one we ever stayed in. We opted for the non all inclusive because my husband has many food allergies and we just can't take chances. We thought that we were going to get a little kitchenette, wow this was a full kitchen with granite counters and stainless steel everything. The suite or condo even had a small plunge pool on the deck. The resort had over seven pools, always space available. What I liked was that they did not want people to hog up the best spots and show up 5 hours later, so no throwing a flip flop and book on three chairs. Best security and wait staff ever.

I was impressed and to think others we spoke with paid 450 per night, and we paid 600 for the week that was for six people again well done. Thank you American Resorts Association.

Dear Ana,

just got back and wished we could have stayed forever. The resort you got us was right on the beach in Puerto Vallarta and walking distances to all the shops and sights. The street food was amazing. The resort was stunning with waterfalls and slides for the kids. Wish I could just live there. Was the most relaxing vacation we ever had.

Dear Ana

Dear Ana
Thank you so much for the vacation you booked for us in Big Bear.
The resort was great, and the location was the best. We got there late and worried that we might be too late, but someone was there, and all was just perfect. Your patience with John and I was much appreciated.

by Jason and Tara from Idaho on American Resorts Association
Thank you, Micheal

Just returned from Peurto Vallarta with our grandkids. We had the time of our lives it was so beautiful to give our children some alone time, and us well, we had alone time with our lovely grandchildren. The resort was super; the kitchen was great since my wife has diabetes, and meals are essential that they are cooked a certain way. Most places use way to much salt and sugar. Having our very own kitchen is a lifesaver. Our children just booked a week in Cancun. You were on another call, so they went through Angie, who was great as well. All your staff is, and the resorts are beautiful. Keep up the good work

My experience with American Resorts has been very positive one. from the start with the sales center in NC and then to the welcome call and then the introduction team. unlike any services I experienced with on line companies... From the personalized advice and knowledge of the reservation center. Good job so far!

Alex,

Thank you so much for guiding me through the processing of our membership and also for providing all the information I requested; however, we will be unable to proceed with this particular vacation. You have been wonderful to work with and I will definitely look forward to working with you again. Because of my interaction with you, we now feel very much more confident in our decision to join this membership was an excellent one!!

Thank you so much!

Fantastic

What a wonderful place! The best experience of my life!

by Jimmy and Patty P on American Resorts Association
Thank you, Michael

You gave us the best vacation ever with the resort in Cabo. Every morning we would drink coffee and watch the cruise ships come in for the day. One day there was five; it was a sight to see how popular this destination is. As we spent the day by the pool, the kitchen really came in handy. This alone saved as a small fortune. All in all, this is one of the very best that we never had. Thanks to American resorts Association you guys are the best.

American Resorts Ass.

I love this concept.. Thanks for convincing me to be a member Tony, Looking forward to many years of traveling and saving money! I called today to your reservation/customer service office and what a joy to speak with they where... 5 Star at its best for sure, Had to change my email and family members only this time, but still ARA got it done immediately. Thanks again to you all.

by Jonny and Geri from Bend Oregon on American Resorts Association
Thank you so much

Dear Ana,
We just returned from our holiday in Orlando. The resort was fantastic (Bonnet Creek) you were so right just beautiful. There was a lazy river, just within a shuttle away from Disney. When we spoke to people by the pool, some had said they paid $250.00 per night, and we spent 650 for the week for a 2 bedroom... At the price, we will come back again.
Thank you so much.

by Anthony B. on American Resorts Association
GREAT JOB ARA!!

We have been arranging our own vacations, with what we thought was with great success. Since Robert at your reservation office started arranging our cruises we are really saving money. Robert has replied to every request for information quickly, and in a friendly professional manner. We are looking forward to dealing with him again."

Jennifer at American Resorts Association,

That cruise on the Norwegian Dawn was so nice. The bad thing was I gained 5 pounds LOL. Seriously it was so nice that you got us an upgrade to a balcony that was unlike any other cruise we ever went on. You and your company really show passion about your work and it really comes across. When we speak it is like talking to a friend. Will be calling you to book a week in Cabo. My husband has a bucket list dream to catch a Marlin. Our friend tells us that Summer is the best time to fish so we are going to Mexico.
Great work Jen

by Donna on American Resorts Association

Hello Angie,

When we joined a few years back we were a little skeptical. Since then we have traveled more than ever. We booked 5 vacations, four for my husband and myself and 1 for our children so they could have some alone time and we can play with our Grandchildren. I really like the fact that the condos have full kitchens since we like to do 3 generation trips and our whole family is picky eaters. So having the ability to make meals that everyone likes is a huge plus. The last resort we stayed at had more than 8 pools. Not a problem finding our own special spot to hang out and enjoy.

Angie, you really are the best you have our notes and our preferences of what we like and nail it all the time. I would tell all my friends that ARA is the real deal. Thank you for making a difference in our lives.

by Janet and Vern H on American Resorts Association

Dear Amy,
Thank you so much for helping us get that condo in Puerto Vallarta Mexico. It was not what we were expecting. We thought it would be a regular resort. This was a mega resort with multiple swimming pools, all kinds of activities. The grandkids painted there own little clay vases and sunshine faces. It was the best resort we ever experienced. I would have to say that American Resorts and its association with these award-winning resorts made our whole year. My husband and I can't remember having a three generation vacation in such a beautiful resort. Those are great memories; we will cherish forever. You were so patient with me and made the booking process so easy. Thanks again.

Hi!
This is Bob I am standing on my lanai looking over the wonderful Pacific Ocean here in Kauai and I have to tell you, this is the most perfect place. We are at the Pono Kai in Kauai, HI. We have the very best room, everything is just perfect. This is the best of the best of the best. Of all the resorts we stayed in this is just so perfect. We do love Hawaii. Thank you, thank you, thank you Rick for helping us because this is just wonderful.

by Judy S. on American Resorts Association

After nearly two years of owning the membership, we finally decided to use it! I’m so glad we got you! I am not computer literate at all, however you patiently explained everything and booked 2 amazing deals for us; one of which was a $399 Value Week! Booking with you has been a wonderful experience. I’m so glad we didn’t back out of this Travel Club as we initially wanted to do after buying. I will definitely be calling you again very soon!
Thank you,

by James on American Resorts Association

Ava - you are the Bomb! Thanks so much for getting us squared away so quickly. The CC card “swap” shows as complete. Like I said – GREAT first impressions… can’t wait to start traveling with you guys and sending referrals along after the experience. BIG hey to Thomas too!

Have a Joyous Day!

by Susanne on American Resorts Association

To Avy's Boss,

This is to let you know how great I think Avy is. She was such a big help to me when setting up my first big adventure. It was a month ago, but every time I think of my trip I think of Avy and how much fun it was just talking to her. Maybe you will understand more about this Alabama old lady when I tell you my phone is a Jitterbug. My husband died on Jan. 18th, so this is the first time out after taking care of him for a lot of years that I’ve been able to go on vacation, and Avy made the experience very easy and fun.

Thanks again for Avy,

by John and Sue G. on American Resorts Association

Dear Farrah,
We sincerely appreciate all the excellent service you gave to us in helping us to secure a condo in Florida. You were very much real help to us. Your attention to detail and follow up was encouraging. We would intend to keep our American Resorts Association or ARA membership if this kind of service can be expected in the future. Please feel free to pass this on to any of your supervisors, as you are a real asset to their organization. We hope to work with you again in the future.
John and Sue G.

Now that was impressive!. Thank you for updating my email address so quickly. I love my membership and the support that ARA provides. The support division still amazes me even after 7 years! I can't wait to share my experience yet again. Have a great day!

by Eli & Naomi L. on American Resorts Association

Hi Micheal we returned from our Cruise, it was fabulous !!. Everything was really wonderful, the arrangements, the Ship, the stuff, the Excursions, we enjoyed it very much.
since it was our first experience cruising, probably we'll consider one more, and actually, might be that we'll try to go on a cruise from Barcelona along the shores of the Mediterranean, towards Athens/Piraeus and from there back Home, but this is an Idea, on which we still need to think about, are there any cruises like this?
again, thanks for your professionalism and excellent services

by Betty Jean C. on American Resorts Association

I will be spending Easter with my family in Kelowna at one of our Resorts in a 3 bedroom condo for 7 days all for $475Yes that is correct $475)

by Brenda and John R Brampton Ontario on American Resorts Association

We own three timeshares all of them we use and go there every year. We have friends we have met that go when we go, so it works great for us. Others feel it is a nightmare. This membership with American resorts association has given us the same privileges and much more with other options like cruises and such for a much lower price. The funny thing is we stayed for an extra week at the home resort that we own a timeshare at for cheaper with American, so we are super happy.

At American Resorts Associations, we understand that not everyone wants to travel the same way to the same places. Our wide variety of members have varying needs on a trip to trip basis. Sometimes they may be looking for a romantic weekend getaway for two, other times they may be looking to travel to celebrate some significant occasion with family and friends, or maybe they want to take off by themselves for either business or personal reasons. The reasons people choose to travel as unique as the traveler themselves.

That is why American Resorts Association offers a variety of membership packages to suit everyone. If it is just you traveling alone, smaller rooms or suites in four or five-star establishments may be all you will ever need. If you have a couple of kids, you may be more interested in condo-style accommodations that include a full kitchen and room for everyone to spread out.

The other great thing about booking the multi-bedroom units is that they are usually located at resorts that have a significant number of additional amenities such as pools, restaurants, bars and sometimes even activity clubs for the children.

Many of the resort stays offered through American Resorts Association may also be used by other family members and friends for the same low booking price. So if you wanted to celebrate someone’s birthday in Orlando, you can request multiple units and take the more of the extended family with you. With these condo-style accommodations including fully equipped kitchens, there can be tremendous savings in just not being forced to eat out three to four times a day. Some travel studies have proven that the average family of four traveling for more than five days will spend more on eating out than any other cost associated with vacationing.

Call American Resorts Associations today! Our travel experts are happy and willing to answer of all of your travel and membership questions and maybe even give you some advice you didn’t expect.
