“You can’t return a bad vacation”, states Ariel Charytan, co-founder and CCO of successful travel portal Oyster.com, and that is why the portal, founded in 2009 by The Travel Channel, is dedicated to traveling the world and confirming or contesting what other travel portals or the hotels themselves publish about the vacation experiences they offer.
Close to 3,000 properties make up the list of hotels visited (and subjected to exhaustive inspections and comparisons to what is published) and every day more and more users trust their valuable vacations to the opinions of the editors of Oyster.com.
Casa Velas has passed under the magnifying glass of meticulous inspectors; in addition to a recommendation presenting the hotel with one of the highest qualifications, it has been recognized among the best hotels in six categories:
Best All-Inclusive Resorts in Puerto Vallarta
Best Beach Hotels in Puerto Vallarta
Best Boutique Hotels in Puerto Vallarta
Best Business Hotels in Puerto Vallarta
Best Luxury Hotels in Puerto Vallarta
Most Romantic Hotels in Puerto Vallarta
Another contribution by Oyster.com is its collection of fun lists of hotels in different categories, among which you can find: Celebrity Hotels, Best City Views and Post-Breakup Escapes- the latter includes Casa Velas and its original promotion for divorcées with a jeweler consultation to redesign your engagement ring and a tiny coffin to say goodbye to your wedding ring as you celebrate with cocktails and your closest friends.
