Having been a couple of times before - I felt comfortable going solo on a vacation. Previously they had reserved the ocean side pool for adults only. Otherwise it is a family friendly hotel which is great. This time however when i arrived there was no longer an adult only pool. Kids were everywhere, the pool areas were covered in... More

This is a basic hotel in an excellent location. Nice sized rooms, excellent balcony with ocean views, and very nice staff, but that's about as good as it gets. Hotel needs updating badly.No hairdryers, ironing boards but no irons, no alarm clock, no tissues, only 2 bath towels to a room, no washcloths or hand towels. Bedding is very thin.... More

Check in was a breeze, even early and received room change!!! I had very little expectations here. I was most pleasantly surprised: great adults pool, loungers and beach. There were maybe 30 kids in the whole resort. Tons of gay men and as married hetero ladies that is totally ok with me. Made lots of friends by the pool and... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night while visiting my parents in PVR. We booked a standard room, all inclusive. Expedia stated it was a 3.5 star- I would say that was a stretch. Negatives: Hotel room was very dated for a 3.5 star. I was a bit concerned with not wearing shoes in the bathroom. No basic... More

Check in was fast. Rooms were ok, it's worth the beach view. The only down side was Manuel who is a pushy activity director. He would not leave me nor my mom alone after we told him we were not interested in going to another's hotels orientation/sales pitch. We were afraid to go out the lobby and run into him... More

So when I went here in 2013 and 2014 I enjoyed the area. Was easy to get to and from where I needed to go. Great restaurants around and always entertainment to be found. I did enjoy the room I stayed in, clean and not bad bed. The only thing I question was the food on some days. Great beach... More

Our rooms were 426 and 427. They were small, plain and offered a nice ocean/pier view as well as a street view. The maid service was consistent and they did a good job. My friends upgraded to a superior ocean view room the last two nights (wasn’t available before then) and while that room was MUCH nicer, there was an... More

I adore this resort, and have stayed there at least 10 times. The staff are amazing! Last year we stayed in a different resort, but I still popped in to say hi to Luis at the front desk. I never had any problems when I stayed at the San Marino and I find the location to be charming. The price... More

This is a lovely hotel in the Romantic zone in Puerto Vallarta Mexico. Steps from the beach, malecon and the vibrant city life that surrounds it. The Hotel has been updating itself now for a few years, rooms are clean and functional. One of the best things is the "staff" they make everyday a treat and after a few years... More
