After arriving on a sunwing package which included breakfast on the first morning I was told their computer indicated no breakfast. When I brought down my copy of the contract which showed under meal plan " breakfast" they ignored that fact and when I asked the manager to read what it said she refused to. I spoke to the sunning... More

First time in Puerto Vallarta for the beef dip event. Not a super-luxury hotel but great choice for a stay in the Old City; perfect beach location, clean rooms, pool area is very nice, friendly and helpful staff. Air conditioning. Would definitely stay here again. Internet access is limited to the lobby but seems to be a standard situation for... More

This hotel has a great location and located exactly where you want to be! The grounds and lobby are very nice and great beach location. The rooms and staff however leave everything to be desired! When I checked in the bell boy could not wait to get his hands on my bags. He pulled them off the desk where I... More

I stay there at least once sometimes twice a year. I have found the staff to be very polite and courteous. The hotel is exceptionally clean and in a great location, on the beach and close to all amenities. In my opinion this hotel should rate higher than it is presently rated. The things that could improve are better mattresses... More

I just returned from a 2 week stay at the Tropicana Hotel in Puerto Vallarta. I picked this hotel for location in town and the beach which is very nice. The water was a little rough but I am sure it varies throughout the year. The pool area is nice. Although the property is just fine, I was very disappointed... More

Bathroom clean and compact all good, would have liked to know about the mattress pads i saw in the lobby on the... More

Stayed here for a week and it was awesome. Best thing is the location. Just can't beat it for convenience being right downtown. The staff are totally friendly. Sure they are not fawning all over you 24/7 but the few enquiries I had were dealt with efficiently and with a smile. My room was clean, very quiet, well maintained and... More

This is an older hotel located right on the beach, if it were any closer it would be under water. The rooms are smaller, but very clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. I was on the second floor with an ocean view. The surf is small in this part of the bay and breaks right on shore. Do... More

If you're on a budget and not picky, it's tough to beat the location. But that's where "the good" ends. While the public areas appear clean and reasonably maintained, a visit to to our room showed why the rates were so cheap for a beachfront hotel. As you walk into the room, you can see sunlight streaming through the gaps... More

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. The beach only has few chairs & umbrelas and runs out by noon. Get to the beach early or you are out of luck. The beach towels if you forget to turn them in the same day by 6 PM they punish you by not giving you any beach towels for 48... More
