I just stayed here for 6 nights. No complaints, the rooms are older but clean. Its very quiet at night. I stayed on the top floor and the noise from downstairs was no problem. As far as the bar area downstairs I have no opinion on that as I never used it. The hotel is in a good location. Block... More

Stayed here last two weeks in May for first visit. This is where Spanish colonial meets 21st century shabby-chic. The rooms are actually well equipped apartments. Mine (402) had a bedroom with a bed capable of accommodating at least 4 people (not actually tested), a living room with TV/DVD, a kitchen with mega fridge freezer, toaster-grill, microwave, gas range, coffee...

The cora is my go to hotel in P V . I have to say this is the best of the best. Yes it is an older apartment set up but by far the cleanest you could ever imagine. The staff is so much like family and again very professional. I know you see posts that say stay away but... More

I stayed for only two nights but would certainly stay there again for a longer period. My room (really an entire apartment) was very large, the bathroom had a huge shower, the bed was very comfortable, and the AC was strong. I only used the kitchen for morning coffee, but it would be fine for making entire meals. Don't assume... More

Having read the previous reviews, I was a little hesitant to book my full week's stay at this property. My reluctance was not because of negative reviews, but because based on the room rate, it almost seemed too good to be true. Upon staying here for the week, I can say it really is a deal. The location is super... More

My partner and I booked the last available room to celebrate New Years with friends this past December. This was our first trip to Mexico. After reading previous reviews I figured that I knew everything I needed to know (and what to expect). However, I was surprised and pleased with a few things: 1) This hotel used to be apartments....

Very clean and well kept establishment. Don't expect luxury, but it is a nice comfortable place to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the big cities. The hotel is less than a 5 minute walk to the blue/green chairs and has a cruisy clientelle, especially around happy hour in the play area. Get a drink and take a... More

Spend any time in Puerto Vallarta and you'll hear a variety of opinions about the Vallarta Cora, a gay-men's hotel located in the heart of PV's Romantic Zone (and epicenter of the area's gay life). Having stayed at the Cora virtually every year for eight years, I can tell you that the hotel is what you make of it. The... More

Mention the Cora to most people in PV and they roll their eyes or smirk. The high sexual energy of the play space...pool, hot tub, steam, sun deck are legendary. Very clean and we'll maintained. Visitors to the play space pay just 50p, which include a free drink (beer). Happy hour is 3 to 6...giant double margaritas. Hotel is a... More

My fiance and I stayed here for 11 nights. Everyone was very nice and polite. They are also very helpful, they carried our bags up to the 4th floor, showed us how everything in the room works. The rooms are actually apartments. They have a full kitchen, gas stove, full size fridge, microwave, blender, toaster, pots, pans, plates, and flatwear.... More
