We just returned from a glorious week at Paradise Village. (timeshare trade - we own a week at Royal Islander in Cancun) I really don't understand all the negative reviews; we had a great time and thought that the property was upgraded from when we were there a couple of years ago. We had a 1 BR - 2 Bath. Only one phone call about a timeshare sales pitch - and after I politely told them we weren't interested, they left us alone.
Restauants we went to in Bucerias - Karen's Place, Mezzogiorno were both excellent. Mezzogiorno was the most romantic setting of any restaurant I've ever been to! Calamari was great, and we had the calamari, 2 entrees and 3 glasses of wine - $41 total! karen's Place was also very good.
We also went to La Laguna and Fajita Republic. Both very good, althought there was a timeshare shark as we excited La Laguna which really irritated me. Now that I think of it I should have complained to the manager. Margaritas were THE BEST at Fajita Republic!
We went to Porto Bellos at Marina Vallarta - kind of expensive; not worth it. The best part of our excursion to the Marina was El Faro - the lighthouse bar.
I would be glad to answer any questions about Paradise Village or Nuevo Vallarta . . . we'll definitely go back!
