My intention of going to PV was exotourism, so we left every morning at 7 am and returned at 7pm. The hotel is clean, it has all the basics. Its cheap, $110 dlls for 3 nights! Nice pool on roof top, with great view to ocean and river. GREAT service at cafeteria and good prices.

I stayed here with my family for 2 nights and we had an enjoyable time. I would give this review a 3+ if I could. We stayed on the 3rd floor and had a nice balcony overlooking the Rio Cuale. The pool on the roof also has a great view, but was very cold! This is ok, but I just... More

I had a very enjoyable 12 day stay this February. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Be sure to try a meal at Moment's Cafe on the 4th level by the pool. Great sunset views,reasonably priced food and incredible iced lattes I will come back next year Mike O. Phila,Pa.

we stayed in 2 different rooms here. the first that was on the third floor was awesome, except for the noise at night. I think it was room 320 or 302 and it had an amazing view. The second room was nice too but not near as loud because it was facing one of the side streets. overall this place... More

I usually stay away from downtown but gave Hotel Encino a try...I was there for 17 days and have a wonderful time. The first few days I was pretty much by myself but as Christmas got Nye, the Hotel became full. My room was on the 2nd floor, facing the River Cuale. It was nice, clean quiet and very safe.... More

We just spent a week at this hotel, and just left yesterday. We were quit impressed with the traditional Mexican feeling from top to bottom. The front desk staff were most helpful despite limited English and Fernando was great! Thank you for all your help! Our room was well cleaned, the A/C was awesome, and the corner room gave us...

A budget hotel in a very good location. Rooms are clean but old. Small restaurant on roof. No WiFi except in Hotel lobby. Will go again because of the location. Old town, 1 block from beach and Malecon.

Pool was very small but good for the kids. Stay on 3rd floor it less noisy. Not 5 star but hey for 55 a night in a resort... More

Encino Hotel is really budget friendly. If you want to get a good night rest this is NOT the place to stay it is loud and rowdy at night. The pros of staying here is its close to the mercado, within walking distance to the malecon, and church. I would not stay here again because I didn't like how loud... More

There was an a hurricane in the area, I tried to cancel my reservation but did not accept. The rooms offer on their website are not as they say. The employees are very good. Hotel Encino is not recommended. Be careful HOTEL ENCINO and HOTEL DEL RIO are the same. The shower has no curtain.
