    Both hotels look and sound great. I think I would lean towards the Marriott and say hello to Mitzy.

      Mitzy is super cute! I love when hotels have resident animals that live there.

    Thanks for this very clear, transparent and honest hotel review! Super helpful! It is so hard to choose a hotel from just looking at pictures online without the voice of real experience. Also, I appreciated the bit of history and, of course, the CATS! I am a cat lady, so I am sold 🙂

      I love reading hotel reviews, and the only way to write one is to be honest and transparent! The Marriott is an incredible place to stay in Puerto Vallarta.

    Aww gotta love those hotel cats! I’ve never been to Puerto Vallarta, but I’m obsessed with Mexico, so I’m sure I’ll make it there someday!

    Wow, both of those pool views are to die for! And let’s be real, my favorite part of this article is the section on the cats. 😀

    Both hotels look gorgeous! That’s interesting that their price point is so similar and yet you found the Marriott so much better. My partner’s last name is Marriott, so we’d probably pick that one. And how cool that cats are a big thing at both properties!

    Seeing that they are almost the same price point, I always would make the deciding factor about last renovation date and beach/pool views. I love how ‘cats’ are their own subheading. Who knew that they would be part of the draw for the guests? Especially those that miss their animals at home while travelling (like me!).

      Cats definitely get their own subheading haha! I loved the pool at The Westin, but the views from the Marriott pool were amazing!

    I liked the look of the Westin room, and that bathroom, but it sounds like the Marriott has a lot more to offer and is better, including the dining options. I love that cats become a category but the one category where both hotels win!

    Based on the look of the room, I would have 100% gone with the Westin. I prefer the wooden look. It looks so much more luxurious and just seems comfortable.
    The modern look of the Marriott just doesn’t scream holiday for me.

    The tiny bug situation makes me not want to stay at the Westin. I wonder if I could train one of the cats to hunt them for me.

    I love that cats gets a section – that’s definitely what would help me choose somewhere to stay! They’re both way out of my budget though which is good as it saves me having to decide which cats to meet!

    My partner and I have stayed at the Westin in PV 3 times this year and we absolutely love everything about it. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The food in the restaurants is delicious and reasonably priced. Room service is prompt and very inexpensive by US standards. Also, most of the upgraded rooms at the Westin have private jacuzzis on the balcony. We’re going back again in February
