I booked this hotel on a discount site, at the last minute in high season, after getting a great deal on airfare. Stayed for two weeks, traveling as a single female, in early February. Had two different rooms (102 and 305). From the beginning, the staff was very helpful and friendly. I called in advance, wanting to know if they... More

We spent one night in this hotel, the service was excellent and is nearby the Malecon and downtown. They offer an option for breakfast which is really good if you don't want to go outside from the hotel.

Previous reviews of this hotel had made me wonder what to expect when I checked into the hotel but was pleasantly surprised by the quality of stay. The hotel was very clean, spacious with most of the amenities I needed. All the staff (front desk, maids, bellboy and other service personnel) were very friendly, helpful and courteous. I had taken... More

I stayed here based on an attractive rate on Expedia --- I had a couple nights in PV, and then I needed something handy to a shuttle service going out 2.5 hours south of PV. The hotel was clean and friendly and well situated and I ended up booking for a couple nights when I returned to PV before going... More

Hello there! We sincerely thank you for the time you took to evaluate us.

Seven of us spent one night, 21 Feb 2014 at this little hotel. Prior to departure there were concerns about cockroaches. I spoke to Expedia and the hotel. Both were most pleasant and helpful. It turns out the place was lovely, no cockroaches anywhere. The rooms were modern and clean. The location was great and the staff pleasant and helpful.... More

If you are used to all inclusive, this is NOT the hotel for you. The rooms are clean and simple (there is no in room safe or fridge). The staff were accommodating and pleasant. The beds are typical for a hotel like this-hard and a bit lumpy. This hotel is located on Av. Mexico (which is a busy street) but... More

Aside from the location near the beach and the Malecon, there are much better lodging options in PV. Our room was on the street side, 2nd floor and the traffic noise was deafening. The room was quite tiny. The pool was tiny and basically a wading pool...and on the roof; with no view. All areas were quite clean and the... More

We appreciate the time you took to evaluate us. We would've loved for you to try our restaurant, our buffet is quite popular among our guests and we always get very good feedback. We remodeled a traditional Puerto Vallarta hotel so rooms are not as big as in other properties but they are cozy and clean. Glad you enjoyed our... More
