After discovering this hidden gem of old Mexico last year, we returned for a longer stay this spring. The balcony views are spectacular, the rooms comfortable, and the location very convenient. The hotel was designed and built in 1979 by a local civil engineer who took wonderful advantage of the cliff side location to give all 19 rooms a balcony... More

Do not stay here until next door condo building is finished. Dangerous, noisy and unsafe. Literally concrete & rebar work being done over pool. Laborers and equipment everywhere. Ear plugs did not lessen the noise. Building itself is old & cave like. Would not stand a earthquake.

In search of a 3 wk. haven to call home while vacationing in PV this past Feb, my husband and I decided to return, after 5 years, to this small, laid back, hotel. Of course, our concern was that things would be as we remembered them. To our delight, it was as if time had stood still. A combination of... More

We have been going to MX for 20 yrs, and finally decided PV was our favorite destination and now after trying 6 different hotels have found the place we will return to. The view and sound of the ocean sleeping with doors open make up for any of the small things that others have complained about. The staff went out... More

Just returned from two wonderful weeks at Hotel Playa Conchas Chinas. Third time my husband and I have stayed at this location in the past 4 years.... after almost annual trips to PV for the past 32 years. Have stayed at many of the "well known" (and much more expensive) Mexican and American hotel "chains" and still find the staff... More

I was to check into this hotel last week but upon arrival discovered that there was major construction going on. One could not carry on a conversation due to the noise, the pool area had netting hanging off to the side of it to catch pieces of concrete, etc. from falling into the pool. Because of the construction very dusty... More

We spent four nights there. Pros: view, sound of the ocean, right there, nice, small beach with many shells, friendly service, big spa tub with ocean view, fan over the bed. Cons: very loud construction next door all day, a dirty, used bar of soap in the shower, frayed towels with holes in them, dirt on closet shelf, no matches... More

Rooms were dingy and dirty. Pictures in no way resemble this place. Hard to believe what you read on trip advisor. No internet unless in small lobby and can't get it most times. The pool looks nothing like this and construction right next door above the pool. You couldn't pay me to stay here

Great views and very nice helpful staff BUT... there is major construction next door. The workers start at 8:00 and work until 6:00 except Sunday. If we had been told about this situation we never would have booked a room here. There is dust and noise. It was almost impossible to use the pool as it is located right next... More
