We were recommended to this wonderful little restaurant by the sea. The sunset was amazing as the tables are right by the beach/sea. We had the best "big bird" margaritas in the whole of Puerto Vallarta!! The staff were fantastic, friendly & accommodating. The best thing tho.... The food we preordered the seafood platters - wow simply wow!! The choice... More

Great little find! We did our research, read the Tripadvisor reviews. Loved the location - out of the main stream action. Each room has an ocean view balcony. Made this our choice to stay for seven nights last week. As we arrived we were a bit unsure. We choose a pretty bare basic room, no fluff. (as I understand the... More

Front desk staff and all personnel very helpful, informative and friendly. The reception area is on the 5th floor and rooms are up and down from there. From our room on the 4th floor to the wonderful beachfront restaurant (offered by Lindo Mar Condo next store) there were about 50 stairs, and another dozen or so to the actual beach.... More

This was a beautiful little hotel with an amazing view of the ocean from every room. One of the reasons we choose it was because of the kitchenettes, and they had everything we needed pots, pans, plates, cutlery (one in party has food allergies). There was a mistake in our booking and were upgraded to a rooms with a Jacuzzi... More

Because it was so inexpensive, I did not expect much from this hotel. However, it was surprisingly nice, and perfect for me because I and a friend were joining family at the Lindo Mar timeshare next door on Saturday. We wanted to arrive in Puerto Vallarta a couple of days early so booked this hotel. It was a good choice.... More

If you're looking for an authentic Mexican hotel this is the place. It's a little run down but is quite possibly the best value out of any place we've ever stayed. Two fantastic restaurants on the grounds. View from room is out of this world. Staff is very friendly. Cabs park directly across the street so you're 8 min ride... More

This was such a great experience for my first time visiting PV. I truly got everything I expected and more. The hospitality is genuine. The hotel itself is older but it definitely has so much character. This an authentic hotel by far! We will return! Thank you Angie for everything!

I first stayed here about 14 years ago and since have stayed probably at least 40 times and have had at least 150 friends stay here over the years. If you want an Americanized style hotel this is not it! This is a great Mexican hotel which has only 19 rooms, all of them tile and all a little different.... More

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.
