The hotel itself is very simple and offers little amenities. We were fine with it because all we wanted was a cheap place to stay. We barely stay in the hotel anyway, PV is so pretty if you stay in the hotel you are loosing out. The location is great, near public transportation and an awesome mecardo with great food.... More

I got a little smear of make up on my towel (they do not provide face towels or tissues) and the housekeeper put it in a bag with a bill for 74 pesos. I washed out the towel by hand and it was cleaner than when they hung it. There was no damage and I refused to pay the fee... More

WhIle the hotel is perfectly located, the bed is hard as a rock and the bathrooms are not as nice as in the pictures. The near by busy street makes it extremely noisy and hard to sleep during the day.

This was good accommodation for the price and location. Shower, toilet, sink, TV and air all worked well and the water was hot. Bed was not a pillow top but better than camping and clean. Down by the Malecon, the romantic zone, beach and shopping.

If your looking for a good location and cheap this is it. This was second stay at encino and oddly got the same room. The room, which was clearly in need of some tlc had not been fixed up at all. This time the taps in the shower and sink were almost falling off. The room was cleanish, the tiles... More

A great experience for the two of us -- close to beach, boardwalk and River Cafe, good tourist shops, and really quiet! Helpful staff. All we missed at the hotel suite was having morning coffee, but the River Restaurant nearby has great breakfasts. We have recommended this to fellow artists who are in transit to organized workshops as a great... More

Tip to arriving by bus: get off the bus at CENTRO(central) this will save you a 10.00 taxi fare. Look for the Guadeloupe church. You would be close to everything. Clean pleasant a good value. Go to some timeshare presentations while you are there. They pay great cash.
