Amazing trip. We've stayed in Mexico about 8 times and always at a posh all inclusive or a private villa in playa. We wanted something more authentic and less touristy. This is the place. The staff are so friendly and anything within their abilities would do for you. No, this is not an amenities filled resort. That's the charm of... More

With my latina girlfriend we felt like living in a hotel where the time stopped. There is a incredible view to the ocean from the room balcony. The room interior mexican style. The beach few minutes from the hotel. The people were helpfull, always giving advices. This hotel is not for people looking luxury style, more for romantic travelers looking... More

Spent 4 magnificent days here. Don't come expecting to find a Ritz Carlton, this hotel is very charming and authentic. The rooms are tastefully decorated. The Jacuzzi on our balcony was great to dip into, I say that but you could spend hours in there watching the sun set. The rooms are clean and have a kitchen area to cook... More

We absolutely loved this hotel with all the charm of old Mexico. The views from the rooms are spectacular! The shoreline location is quiet and away from the crowds. Mostly we heard only the surf on the rocks and beach below. We are looking forward to returning for another week next year and for longer stays in future years. We... More

The view of the ocean is stunning from this hotel that was surely a destination for the stars in the 50's and 60's. The buena vistas were unfortunately overshadowed by wild teenage partying that went on all night long preventing many upset guests from getting any sleep. Sleep would have been difficult anyhow due to the rock hard mattress and... More

So glad I chose a hotel using trip advisor! This hotel had good ratings, but when I arrived with my daughter we gasped at the view from our room. We had a large balcon overlooking the azure bay with palm tree swaying in the wind. The ocean was right there. We slept with the doors open so we could hear... More

My husband and I were so excited to be able to travel to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for the first time. We arrived of a warm sunny day, rented a car and started our drive to what we thought would be a romantic hotel. "Night of the Iguana" was filmed there with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. What could be more... More

We stayed at Playa Conchas Chinas as another friend had been staying there for several weeks. We loved being away from the hyper activity of the centre of PV. The hotel clings to a hillside and has a million steps. The rooms are well furnished with view terrace, small stove elements, fridge, dishes, etc. Highlight was the beachside restaurant featuring...

This small hotel is what I call "Old Mexico", and I love it! If you want hi-rise glitz & glamor, go elsewhere, but for totally laid back lazy days on the beach... check you attitude at the door, and just enjoy the natural beauty of Mexico, customs and charm. We've been return about 5 years running, and found the staff... More

This place has great potential. Unfortunately, I can't see it realizing that potential unless it's sold. I was looking for a clean budget-friendly option for nine nights and what I got was something entirely different. When I walked into the first room, I noticed the fantastic view. Great! Then, I noticed a rather large hole in the wall next to... More
