This hotel is right in the center of Old Town Vallarta, close to everything including bars and restaurants. The staff is friendly, the place is clean. Our 2 bedroom room had a small kitchen and 2 balconies, one facing the pool. Free coffee all day!

We stayed at the Estancia San Carlos for 5 nights at the end of our visit to Puerto Vallarta, having moved there because it has a pool in a lovely courtyard. We always stay in the old town in places that have cooking facilities. Our room, #13, was a two bedroom one bathroom suite on the top floor (of 3)... More

Great place to stay - 3 blocks from beach. Comfortable room, GREAT staff. Offers weekly or monthly rates. We've stayed there 3 years in a row and have been pleased with the location (Old Town) and the staff goes out of its way to make sure your stay in the hotel and in PV is the best it could be.

Estancia San Carlos is the perfect choice for those on a budget who don't mind a more Mexican ambience. One and a half blocks (no hills!) to Los Muertos Beach...right in the middle of "Old Town" Vallarta. One and two bedroom units with partial kitchens...amazing staff...and a pool! We are booked again for 2014.

The staff was excellent, from the Manager Francisco, front desk Yesina and Leino, Oswaldo who could fix anything and give you a helping hand when you needed it. The ladies (Marta, Elena and Marie...

I lived in a two bedroom apartmnet at the San Carlos for the month of February, 2011 and enjoyed my stay. I loved the location. It is near the river, ocean, markets, restaurants, clubs, etc that I visited just about daily. Yesenia and her staff were very courteous and helpful. I had a couple of minor plumbing problems that they... More

I stayed at this hotel for four days in October. All of my new clothes were stolen. At first everyone denied it, then the staff blamed each other and then there was talk of repaying me, which of course would be impossible. I was never able to talk to the owner. This was a very costly and disappointing stay,and it... More

I made a reservation in advance, over the phone, at this hotel starting on a Saturday, for three nights. I was told the rate was x amount per night. When we arrived at the hotel, the manager asked us if we had a reservation and at what rate. We told them, and without even asking our name or checking, he... More
