The hotel needs a renovation.
Overall, my stay was a 7/10—excellent service at the pool, clean rooms, and 24/7 room service. I have stayed at the hotel over the years, and due to the heavy traffic and "party groups," it has been quite worn down. The front desk can be pretty strict with their presence due to crowds over the years. Great location, and hopefully, the hotel will invest in a well-needed upgrade.

A Great stay
We were done for a friend's 40th Birthday and it was truly a great stay. The Staff, service and food were fantastic. The pool on the 5th floor was also stunning. If in PV, we would stay here again.

Great staff..very friendly and accommodating. Most are very fluent in english. Very clean resort with several bars and lounging areas. Nice gym with great views of the beach and ocean. Breakfast options could be better. I would recommend this resort.

At least the pool is nice…
Booked a two night stay mid-week for my birthday. I’ve stayed at this hotel last year and was excited to stay again. However, this will be my last. There was construction noise on the newer building under the Eden pool (which was never mentioned on the website) Mind you, this part of the hotel has been under construction for the past two years. Also, the hotel staff are always on the up-sell with the massages. Guys walking around asking if you want an overpriced massage every ten minutes. The pool staff seemed to forget about us, only to chase us away from the daybeds that you need to.. you guessed it, rent for a fee. The rooms itself are comfortable and kept clean with big walk-in showers. You get access to the beach club Mantamar, but that has seen better days. It is in desperate need of a remodel and repair. The pool has missing tiles and the beach chairs are all broken and tattered. Pretty sad for a place that was once a fun daytime beach club. Oh, and let me not forget the breakfast restaurant on the top of the hotel blasting club music at 11am. This hotel is for party people 24/7 and the gullible queer traveler. Be warned, this hotel has bought the neighboring property so they can expand. Just be prepared for construction noise in the near future that will most likely last several years. Also, they make you pay $65 for each overnight guest, even though this is a hotel. I’d avoid this hotel unless you want a party vibe 24/7. Just not worth it with all the new condos now.

It's right on the beach. Rooms are big and well designed and staff zre friendly and helpful. The only negative is soundproofing between rooms could be better.

4/10 Fair

Other than some of the views from certain rooms and the infinity pool grounds around Eden Bar, there’s very little hood that came out of my stay. Stuck up bar staff, not friendly at all, long time share talk at check in, no guests allowed on pool, $65 for visitors to the room, $16 mediocre drinks (plus tip) I would highly consider other options.

2/10 Poor

During our 4 night stay, for 3 days straight we complained to front desk about cigarette & “other” smoke smell that was coming into our room via the air duct from the guests next door. The AC ducts are all connected in the romance suite ocean view rooms, so if anyone smokes the smell goes into the other rooms. Although smoking is prohibited in all rooms, it seems that the hotel management does not care to enforce their own rules. The only solution they offered us was to stay in another room that does not meet the standards we paid for; and they provided this solution at 9pm on the last night of our stay. I had high expectations of Almar, unfortunately, their lack of enforcement of their own non-smoking policy in addition to providing solutions that fall below the experience we paid for is disappointing. During our check-out, the Manager informed the Supervisor on duty that there was nothing they could do for us except apologize for the inconvenience.
