Once more I was in paradise at Vallarta Shores. Stayed in Condo seven this time, The sound of the ocean at night was perfect with the acoustics in this suite. In the mornings, walking on the beach at my doorstep. Funny thing is I saw all the other hotels and felt like Vallarta Shores is my second home and what... More

I had the distinct pleasure of staying 5 nights at this superb hotel for Spring vacation. My stay was absolutely perfect. From the kind, courteous, and professional staff, to the meticulous, comfortable rooms and common areas, my experience was nothing less than exceptional. Trip was on a busy spring break weekend so the hotel was very busy, but really no... More

I have stayed at Vallarta Shores on several occasions . The staff is very attentive. The location is perfect if you love the beach. Although the building is older, they keep up making sure all our needs were met, I am staying again next February, just because they are consistent in making our stay a relax , worry free vacation,

What a charming place, clean, so nicely decorated and the staff was courteous and very efficient. We could walk to all the restaurants and shops old-town. Such a convenient location. Loved walking along the beach walk.

This is a nice location at the end of the Playa de Los Muertos. The staff is courteous but if you notice it is a pet friendly hotel. SO that being said, there were two dogs barking all the time when they were left alone in the room. It was quite an annoyance and yes the construction is going on... More

Vallarta Shores is located at the southern tip of the most cohesive(read: less walking in this area to reach old town) cluster of hotels in the Romantic Zone/Playa Los Muertos, so it is private and close to the old town by walking (I recommend the beach, in order to avoid hills) or a 20-40 peso taxi ride around one block....

We absolutely loved our first visit to Vallarta Shores. The rooms are spacious and clean, the decor is authentic and the view is amazing. It is a quick walk to all the downtown action. Infact, we walked everywhere and saved on taxis. We elected to have a private chef for our group and that was the best decision ever! He... More

We returned to our favorite condo hotel in Puerto Vallarta. We like this hotel for it spacious rooms and authentic Mexican decor. It's located steps from the ocean and vibrant old town P.V. We never needed the A.C. because we had a sea breeze. It was prefect.

Myself and two friends just visiting and stayed in Suite 5 which was really a great space. Mind you we're three guys in our 30's and we weren't looking for a luxury condo, just something on the beach and close to downtown. The unit was great if not needing a bit of upkeep, but whatever. The view would have been... More

I was here 11 years ago and I loved it so in my return to Vallarta I was able to get two days in a one bedroom suite. Loved it! Room was clean, very large, beach is nice and very private but still close to the action. The bathroom had a sewer smell and perhaps they need to be updated... More
