Could be a good option for west coast folks....bet with west coast prices by the look...but who knows. Competition is good.

In the prospectus it does talk about "secluded beach" but it does not mention it for activities, etc. Hopefully, the beach is not "secluded" in the same vain that Hidden Beach Resort's beach is "hidden". wink

This looks very nice. It would be great to have a resort a bit closer for us West Coasters. Although traveling to PV is basically a full day from Seattle, at least it is easy and much cheaper than Montego Bay.

Just under 10 acres. You have to travel by boat, but I don't think it is an island. Are the employees boated in and out too?

Zork, agree with the comment about HB. We were disappointed the one time we visited. If this place is only reachable by boat, the whole place is secluded.

Considering this (and the fact that it's located near Puerto Vallarta), wouldn't this be more competition for Desire rather than Hedo? I've never been to Desire because it's couples-only, so my question is just based on my extremely limited understanding of the place.

We rather like Hidden Beach (except for the current murder rate in the Cancun area) but for the last eight to ten years or so (I don't remember which hurricane it was), there is no beach at Hidden Beach, particularly with the new El Dorado Seaside Suites to the north of HBR which took away the easily accessible beach from HBR.

It doesn't appear to be an all-inclusive. With its seclusion (only reachable by boat), that could be expensive dining and drinking.

It also appears to be a timeshare operation which diminishes its appeal to me. Desire has started having two classes of customers and I felt like a second-class customer the last time I was there. And, probably the last time....

If you're referring to location, Cancun is about 3 times farther from PV than it is from Jamaica.

I have known about this property for about 4-6 months but couldn't talk about it. I'm excited to have an option for the west coast crowd that will have better air possibilities than Jamaica or Cancun.

I've been asked to come visit when they are ready with a soft opening. As I get more information, I will post it - probably in a new forum here and a new section on my web site.

It's nice to have choices but I'm not sure that Hedo actually has competition especially as it is now. Mexico has it's own culture as does Jamaica and so the spirit of each resort reflects that to some extent. When Hedo was in such bad shape we stayed away and went to Desire instead. Desire is beautiful and the people working there could not have been kinder or more helpful but it had a different atmosphere. The weather wasn't quite the same, the beach rougher and to us it just didn't accommodate the same kind of easy sexy, naughty atmosphere.

OK, thanks for clarifying.

Looks to be more of a low-key romatic couples place than Hedo's party vibe with singles and whatever goes. Similar, maybe....competition, not the same crowd.

Website still says coming soon. Denny, can you book this resort? I can't seem to to get much info on the website, especially room rates.

Yes, I will be able to. Once they provide me rates and start taking reservations.

So they haven't given you any sort of heads up on when the resort will open? I know I can't get away during the official school days next year, but we so enjoyed having a Dec. trip. So we are contemplating taking advantage of my 2 week Christmas break and booking a trip somewhere as our Christmas gift to each other next year!
Keep us posted when you hear new info!
