We tried several hotels in PE and this was our last. Central location, beautiful garden, nice big pool, ok rooms, so so restaurant. Most of the hotels in PE seem to be stuck in the seventies. They are basic accommodation at reasonable rates. The biggest turn off, totally nothing to do with the hotel, was the fact that we didn't... More

Puerto Escondido has blossomed in recent years and there are many new hotels at every price range. Hotel Arcoiris is an older hotel with parking, pool, restaurant, wi-fi,and landscaped grounds. It is across from the longest beach (Zicatela) which has many beachfront restaurants. However, there is almost always a dangerous undertow at Zicatela. We went to the beach nearer to... More

We have just returned from our 12th winter visit to Arco Iris and can say that the service and appointments only get better and better each year. The rooms are authentic 'old Mexico', rustic and colorful, impeccably clean, and almost every one has a gorgeous view of the pounding ocean. Zicatela Beach is known among surfer enthusiasts as the "Mexican... More

I really loved this hotel and found its grounds and quiet environment wonderful. It seems a tiny bit dated with the light fixtures and such, but it appealed to me completely and feels very much like "old Mexico" with the ferns and stone steps and painted tiles, etc. My room was reasonable, cheaper than many of the surrounding hotels considering...

I booked a room by phone and they quoted me a price of 500 pesos per night including breakfast but when I checked in I was told that breakfast was an extra 100 pesos! Real good for a start! Then it got worse very quickly! My room was ocean-view but right on the road and out of the six nights... More

Arco has many things to recommend it- friendly, helpful staff eager to please. Rooms are large and all but two (213,214) have excellent large balconies overlooking the ocean.Furniture is eclectic but all rooms have at least two beds, a desk some with fridges etc. An excellent mix of Mexican and various nationalities tourists staying for long periods all through Dec,...

Stayed at Arco Iris several times during a low budget surf trip in September 2009. After having stayed for two nights at the poor bungalows at Rockaway, we decided to look for something better. We got a bargain price of $45 (low season) for a double room, which was way better standard than the crappy bungalow that did cost $30.... More
