“Our stay at Vallarta Shores was amazing. Check in was easy, communication was great, our room was super clean. Our chef Mario was also awesome. Some of us weren not feeling great after returning from a day tour and he made us homemade chicken noodle soup— so kind and the soup was delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to come back again!” – Kali Londa
