We loved this place. We didn't want a all-inclusive serving American buffet food, so we found this place and really enjoyed the experience-- in fact, this is where Mexican families stay when they vacation. The staff does not speak much English, nor do my wife and I speak much Spanish, but the staff was friendly and we got along very... More

Kitchentte not what they offer. I do not recommend the condition of the room. What is at its webpage is not true, beware. La cocina no es lo que ofrecen, no recomiendo la condicion de los cuartos. Lo que esta en su pagina web NO ES CIERTO.

I have stayed at the Suites for 5 years with the timing being 2 to 3 months. It is a quiet location close to the Malecon, Mercado, and other shopping locations. The staff is accommodating and provides support when needed. Our maid is wonderful and it is great to see her each year. The accommodation is spacious and clean. There... More

Suites of one or two bedrooms are available and the staff, housekeeping and front desk, are a joy. English is not their strongest suit, but we all manage with... More

I love this place. I have stayed here for 2 Decembers in a row (a week at a time) and am coming back for more next year. The price is UNBEATABLE for an entire apartment (bedroom, kitchen, balcony, dining table) with the best location in PVR in my opinion - right in the middle of the city by the rio... More

this is our third trip to PVR and our third stay at Hotel Encino/Suites Del Rio. However, this is the first time we used the suites which were wonderful to have a place separate from the bedroom. It was nice to make coffee and sit on the balcony watching birds and the people. Everyone goes out of their way to... More
