The location is good since you are right across the street from the ocean and all the bars and nightlife in Puerto Escondido if that is what you are looking for. The rooms are clean but take your own towel. There are hammocks in the pool are facing the ocean which is good. Gets pretty hot at night though in... More

I spent a week March 9-15 at the Arco Iris. I was warmly welcomed by Rebecca when I arrived. I had a lovely room up on the top le vel of the resort view... Phenomenal - Stairs up and down not so much. But it gave me my daily exercise. I had a full fridge and a coffee maker in... More

I stayed for two weeks at this hotel in a double room, having breakfast and lunch at the open air restaurant upstairs. My room was cleaned every day, I enjoyed the friendly atmosphere in the garden, appreciated the helpful and serviceminded staff, enjoyed the good food of the restaurant with a view to nearby Ziccatela beach. The hotel is right... More

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...
