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.

It's a clean friendly place. The front desk was friendly. Maid service was good. But did find that there were time we did not get hand soap so went and bought a bar, no big deal It cost less than a dollar. The restaurant on the top floor was nice. It had a beautiful view of the city especially at... More

The hotel is very well located near the Malecon, the Los Muertos Beach, many restaurants, major night clubs etc. The hotel itself is basic but decent. My room had a king bed, with balcony. The a/c worked well. My only complaint would be the bathroom. Imagine one large tiled room with sink, toilet and shower head. There was no actual... More

Good location, clean rooms, friendly staff, good wifi connection. I particularly enjoyed the rooftop pool area. Only downer was the inconsistent hours of the restaurant: first they were't open for breakfast, then they were, then they weren't. However, the food was really good especially the sandwiches. Restaurant staff also very friendly. I will definitely stay here again.

I paid for 30 nights at the Encino Hotel Suites from 10/17-11/15. The property caters to large Mexican groups on weekend holidays, and it gets very noisy during late evening hours. The last straw for me was when I was told to move to a smaller room in the hotel on the last night of my stay to make room... More
