Villa Premiere Boutique All Inclusive Hotel in Puerta Vallerta- December 2023


The Villa Premiere Boutique Hotel located in the heart of Puerto Vallarta is not far from the marina & has it all. They offer al a carte or all inclusive packages with beach access, multiple dining spots, and bars, including a swim up bar one from the pool.  The service and staff are very welcoming and attend to your needs. I had an in-house butler for any requests with a balcony and ocean view room with a very comfortable king size bed. The room also came with the big jacuzzi tub and has a romantic setting.

I arrived the first day and it was about a 15 to 20 minute ride from the airport to the hotel. After checking in, I headed down to the beach as it was a beautiful day. I was about to hop in for a swim in the ocean, when one of the staff told me about their kayaking and paddle board options. I decided to try kayaking and after the first wave pushed me back, I got out there and it was awesome. After returning the kayak, I went in for a swim before getting ready for dinner at the chefs table at the Murales restaurant. There was a five course meal prepared in front of you.

It was time to hit the hay and wow was the bed comfortable.  The next day started with yoga at 9 AM and then breakfast at the La Ceiba restaurant.

After a some eggs and a smoothie, I decided to go get the welcome five minute neck massage that you can use anytime during your stay. The ocean water was so warm so I had to jump back in the swim for a while. That gave me an appetite for lunch back at La Ceiba restaurant. I had a little time before we had to leave for the island excursion dinner show so I went to get a workout in their gym, which had an assortment of cardio equipment, free weights and machines.

Our group took a taxi to the marina to catch the approximate 50 minute ferry to the island of Las Colitas.  From there we headed to the buffet dinner on the hilltop with a beautiful sunset in the background. After dinner, it was time to head into the awesome outdoor amphitheater for their Cirque du Soleil type acrobatic/dance/fire music show called Alma.  I was blown away as the acts were top notch in the performance was funny, fun, and so entertaining. This excursion is not to miss.

The third day was full of activities, but you can do whatever you want at your leisure. I went for a run on the beach and then an hour kayak ride in the ocean. It was then time for my hot stone massage in the spa at the hotel, which was outstanding. I had some time to relax before jumping in the awesome ocean water again for a swim.

The last night we had dinner at LaCorona located in the hotel. It’s kind of fine dining with a casual atmosphere. It was also Italian night at the other restaurant nearby, so we were free to order what we wanted to from our menu. The highlights were the seafood pasta and the fresh scallops over saffron couscous.

Your all inclusive bracelet (if you choose to go that route) gives you all you can drink and all you can eat access at the Villa Premiere or their sister restaurant located right next-door.

The last day after breakfast was more relaxing on the beach, one more kayak ride and one last swim in the ocean before heading to the airport. Overall, just fantastic and I highly recommend the Villa Premiere Boutique Hotel on your next visit to Puerto Vallerta.
