Getting Ready to Welcome You Back!

By

Pinnacle Resorts is happy to announce that we are now accepting reservations for stays beginning July 1, 2020, and beyond. During this challenging time, as the globe has united in a common goal of good health, we have done our part to protect our community. Our properties closed on a voluntary basis in mid-March and are now part of the mandatory closure order issued by our government until the end of May 2020. During this time, we have had staff shelter at home with only essential team members – following social distancing protocol – on the properties for maintenance and security needs, and each and every Pinnacle Resorts staff member has received their full salary while staying at home.

We miss our guests and are looking forward to welcoming you back again soon. Should government guidelines remain unchanged, with businesses opening back up at the end of May, we will be spending the entire month of June focusing on sanitizing and disinfecting all private and common areas on our properties, with specific procedures that go above and beyond our already strident cleaning policies. We believe that the safety of our guests and team members comes first, above all else, so we will take that additional time before welcoming visitors back, to ensure that your stay is worry-free, healthy, and happy.

As the world reopens, we want to make it easy for our guests to return to beautiful Puerto Vallarta. For any guests that had to cut their Pinnacle Resorts stay short or cancel their stay due to world health concerns, we will be offering credits and are available to help rebook your stay in your favorite suite. We will also be offering special Summer Season Sizzlers, fantastic promotional rates to treat yourself to a luxury stay for less.

For the remainder of May, we will be working at home, but invite you to contact us via our Online Chat function or email.

We wish everyone good health, thank you for doing your part to keep the world safe and look forward to pampering you during your Pinnacle Resorts stay very soon.

RESIDENCES SKY BAR AT PINNACLE RESORTS 220

By

Choosing a stay in a luxury vacation rental in the Puerto Vallarta Romantic Zone with Pinnacle Resorts means not only the convenience of full suite accommodations, but also outstanding resort-style amenities, like the Residences Sky Bar. 

Located on the rooftop terrace of Pinnacle Resorts 220Residences Sky Bar offers a breathtaking 360-degree view across the Pacific waters of Banderas Bay all the way to the horizon, city views of charming Puerto Vallarta and the lush jungle of the majestic Sierra Madre mountains. A meandering, sparkling pool with cross-over bridges invites a refreshing swim or catching some sun and a snooze on a pool lounger.  

Visit the bar and ask the friendly bartenders to whip up your favorite vacation beverage, or visit during our famous Pinnacle Resorts Happy Hour, daily from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm, and enjoy 2×1 top shelf cocktails and wine, while relaxing in the comfortable, shaded lounge areas. 

The convenience and amenities at Pinnacle Resorts have made us a traveler’s best choice for luxury vacation rentals in Puerto Vallarta. With more spacious accommodations than a traditional hotel room and fully equipped suites with washer/dryer, complete kitchens, and many suites offering outdoor BBQs and Jacuzzis or dip-pools, your suite is as much of vacation destination as Puerto Vallarta is itself.

THE MANY BENEFITS OF MASSAGE IN PUERTO VALLARTA

By

Going to the spa to get a massage feels like a luxury or special treat for many people, but did you know there are many scientifically proven health benefits of massage? Just some of the medical conditions for which doctors recommend massage include chronic back pain, anxiety and stress, the treatment of soft tissue injuries or delayed onset muscle soreness, sleep issues and improving high blood pressure.

But beyond medical reasons, getting a massage can enhance your Puerto Vallarta vacation in many physical and psychological ways, including reducing muscles soreness or stress from travelling, helping relieve jet lag, stimulating your lymphatic system and improving skin tone after the dehydration of air travel, and just for general relaxation to help you ease into your holiday.

SIGNATURE SIPS: THE PALOMA

By

When you think of famous Mexican cocktails, of course, the Margarita comes to mind. But have you been lucky enough to sample the Margarita’s cousin? We’re talking about the delicious Paloma. Tequila and grapefruit-based, the Paloma cocktail is perfectly refreshing for summer and may just become your new favorite vacation drink. Here is how to make one to enjoy on the spacious terrace of your Pinnacle Resorts luxury vacation rental in downtown Puerto Vallarta.

What You Need

¼ cup fresh grapefruit juice

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

1 teaspoon sugar

¼ cup Tequila

¼ cup mineral water

Course salt

1 grapefruit wedge to garnish

What You Do

Gently rub the grapefruit wedge around the rim of your cocktail glass and then dip the glass in a plate of salt, for a nice salty rim. Add grapefruit juice, lime juice and sugar and stir until the sugar is fully dissolved. Mix in Tequila, ice cubes and top up with mineral water. Then garnish with your grapefruit wedge.

Or, for an easier recipe, visit the friendly staff at Signature Lounge or Sky Bar at Pinnacle Resorts, and have our expert bartenders make you a Paloma at the best Happy Hour in Puerto Vallarta, happening every evening in time for sunset.

CHOOSING AN EVENT PHOTOGRAPHER IN PUERTO VALLARTA

By

Many of our guests stay in our luxury vacation rentals in the Puerto Vallarta Romantic Zone to celebrate a wedding, anniversary or other special event.  And while we can promise that your stay at Pinnacle Resorts will be memorable, you may want to consider hiring a photographer for your event or wedding in Puerto Vallarta. Having hosted many public and charity events, our Pinnacle Resorts team has some suggestions for choosing a photographer in Puerto Vallarta for your special occasion. 

Request a full portfolio – don’t be taken in by just a handful of photographs from a website. A professional, experienced photographer should have an extensive portfolio showing many different types and styles of work. 

Talk budget – have a clear idea of what you are willing to spend on photography in Puerto Vallarta and remember, that price can often reflect quality.  

What’s your style – talk to your photographer about how you want your Puerto Vallarta wedding or event captured, be it traditional posed portraits or more spontaneous, casual images. 

Personality – During your event, the photographer will interact with your guests and it is important that he or she is professional, serious and focused on capturing and creating amazing images. 

Talk to our Pinnacle Resorts concierge staff for suggestions about photographers and other ways that we can make your special event or wedding in Puerto Vallarta even more memorable.

MORE CHOICES FOR CANADIAN TRAVELERS

By

Getting to Puerto Vallarta for your unforgettable vacation at Pinnacle Resorts has never been easier for Canadian travelers. In addition to direct flight routes from WestJet and Air Canada from departure cities including Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto and Montreal, two new airlines are adding to your travel options.

In January 2019, Swoop Airlines, a new low-cost carrier owned by WestJet, took to the skies with direct flights to Puerto Vallarta from Abbotsford International Airport (YXX) in British Columbia and John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport (YHM) in Ontario. Both routes offer twice-weekly service to our sunny shores.

And taking off later in 2019, Canada Jetlines will offer new direct flights from Canada to Puerto Vallarta, as another affordable airline carrier soon to service our destination. Although routes have yet to be confirmed, agreements have already been made with Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico which manages the Puerto Vallarta International Airport (PVR), and flight operations for Fall 2019 should be announced this summer.

With so many easy ways to for Canadians to get to Puerto Vallarta, you can enjoy a perfect vacation in our luxury vacation rentals in Old Town Puerto Vallarta complemented with easy and convenient flight options.

WHERE TO CELEBRATE 2019 IN PUERTO VALLARTA

By

While it is very tempting to celebrate New Year’s Eve 2019 from the private terrace of your luxury vacation rental in the Puerto Vallarta Romantic Zone with beautiful views of the midnight fireworks over Banderas Bay, if you are looking to go out to celebrate, your Pinnacle Resorts Concierge is at your service.

Cost is $3,800 pesos per person and includes tax and gratuity.

For a Puerto Vallarta New Year’s Eve dinner out, your Pinnacle Resorts Concierge will be able to assist you with reservations any restaurant serving a festive meal. Some guest favorites are Trio, Vitea, The Swedes, Azafrán and Café Des Artistes. Your concierge will have full dinner menus available to choose the perfect option for your celebration.

BECOMING A TEQUILA CONNOISSEUR

By

In our last blog, we recommended Uncork Mexico as the perfect way to discover some of the amazing wines being produced in Mexico. But truly, no visit to Puerto Vallarta is complete without spending some time with our most famous export – Tequila!

Of course, you can and should visit the friendly bartenders at Signature Lounge and Residences Sky Bar by Pinnacle any night of the week to enjoy Puerto Vallarta’s best Happy Hour set against a stunning sunset view, who will gladly help you with some top shelf Tequila suggestions. But for more in-depth Tequila experience, our Pinnacle Resorts concierge team recommends Vallarta Tequila Tastings.

Join Vallarta Tequila Tastings in their venue or book them for a private tasting in the comfort of your luxury accommodations in the Puerto Vallarta Romantic Zone. Their knowledgeable Tequila Master will guide you through the rich history of Tequila making in Mexico and help you identify the subtle flavors and sophistication of a variety of specially selected bottles.

A private Puerto Vallarta Tequila tasting with Vallarta Tequila Tastings is the ideal way to become a Tequila connoisseur during your Puerto Vallarta luxury vacation, so that you can return home to education your friends that fine Tequila is much more than shooters and regrettable decisions.

DISCOVERING MEXICAN WINES

By

The famous Happy Hours at Signature Lounge and Residences Sky Bar by Pinnacle are truly ideal for enjoying top shelf drinks accompanied by a stunning Puerto Vallarta sunset every night of the week during your luxury vacation in the Puerto Vallarta Romantic Zone at Resorts by Pinnacle. But if you are a wine-lover and interested in learning more about the burgeoning wine industry in Mexico, you may be interested in having a more immersive experience with some of the amazing vintages now being produced in our country. Uncork Mexico is the Pinnacle Resorts Concierge recommendation for wine buffs to discover new favorites while vacationing in Puerto Vallarta.

Uncork Mexico features exclusive wine tastings in Puerto Vallarta, both in a group setting or in the privacy of your Puerto Vallarta vacation rental at Resorts by Pinnacle. Owned by two engaging and knowledgeable Puerto Vallarta residents, hailing from Mexico and Brazil, Uncork Mexico travels extensively throughout the three major wine regions in Mexico to source incredible bottles of chenin blanc, chardonnay, sauvignon blanc and viognier for white wine fans, and Bordeaux varietals, Grenache, tempranillo, dolcetto, syrah and petite sirah for those that prefer reds. They also have marvelous selections of rosé and bubbles to satisfy all interests and offer artisan cheese and chocolate tastings to enhance your wine tasting experience.

Though Mexico is best known for Tequila, and to a lesser extent, mezcal and raicilla, Mexican wines are gaining respect with wine connoisseurs and sommeliers across the globe. Whether a private wine tasting on your Pinnacle Resorts terrace or a group tasting in one of Uncork Mexico’s venues, which are all within easy walking distance, a Puerto Vallarta wine tasting is a wonderful addition to any Pinnacle Resorts vacation. Talk to your concierge for more information.
