3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We actually had rooms at the sister hotel - Casa Dona Susana. But we used the amenities for our all-inclusive trip. Food - we ate out at night but ate the breakfast buffet and poolside/grill snacks for lunch. Pretty much the same food every day... But we knew that and liked the convenience. We tanned on the beach daily -... More

This was our second time staying at Los Arcos we did the all inclusive, and found the food satisfactory and the service very good. We chose this hotel as it is in an area that we like to explore, for shops , restaurants and bars. There was a mix up when we checked in, they said we had booked the... More

Pros: Great location in the heart of town where you'll find amazing restaurants. Clean. Bartenders poured well when you tipped. Cons: The staff doesn't go the extra mile – you'll get what you get. The beach isn't fantastic, but it boarders other better spots. The WiFi is atrocious. Unknowns: We didn't get an all inclusive package so ended up eating... More

This location is wonderful for everything in PV. You can walk to many galleries, restaurants, bars, shops or take a public bus to all points from old town. Your can hope Martha checks you in, and you have Fabiola as your maid. These ladies are Playa Los Arcos, Mexican welcoming staff. The servers in the restaurant are great and when... More

After staying at Los Archos for a couple years we tried another neighborhood hotel for a couple years... and decided to come back. Even while staying at the other place we found ourselves coming back for Meals (especially Breakfast and Lunch) and the Happy Hours. The beachfront access and nice pools are a big plus... and the rooms continue to... More

The location is great. Cozy rooms, great beach, good food. What's not to like! Bring your walking shoes and take in the Malacon north with all the shopping and restaurants. We love the Blue Shrimp Restaurant one block away. Great women's shop in the front of the lobby.

My friend and I spent two weks in this resort and enjoyed every minute. The room was cleaned every day, towels and bedlinen changed when we wanted. Due to medication we had a fridge, no trouble and a coffee perculator. Nothing was too much trouble. I found it very relaxing and would lie in bed listening to the sea rolling... More

The hotel is in a perfect location and I imagine most of the rooms are wonderful. Unfortunately we had reserved through Orbitz to be able to stay just one night and were put in one of the few non-view rooms. Room 230 was like a broom closet with a stinky dank bathroom. The air conditioner sounded like a garbage disposal... More
