“NO A/C and Non-stop street noise”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2011

You would much better staying somewhere else - Too much street noise-up all night-no elevator we were on the third floor-Hotel clerk spoke no english-but very friendly and helpful-she offered us the 5th floor-but didn't want to climb that many stairs in the heat.
A/C was a charge 60 pecos or $5 dollars for 8 hours. The price was fair but I would now spend a little more money and get a/c and a good night sleep.
One more thing, the bathroom was tiny, to sit down on the toilet your knees on the door.

This is my second stay at the Belmar. To me, it's my second home in Mexico. The location is very convenient. The place is dazzlingly spotless. The staff are friendly (only in Spanish). Hot water. Cable TV. Just six blocks from the beach. Great price.

I was only here one night but thought it was an outstanding budget option. I stayed in room 31, exterior on the side street, still loud but I liked having the door to the balcony open anyway. The room was very spacious, and sported a full sized refrigerator, bright red walls, two beds, fun art, TV and a little desk and chair. The art in the halls and rooms provides a charming and thoughtful touch. Although there are no phones in the rooms, the staff provided a wake up knock bright and early as requested. Very centrally located, taxis and buses are plentiful just outside.

We spent 12 nights at the Belmar February 12-24, 2011. What a clean and friendly place. Just what we wanted. We were in room 29 on the 5th floor, no elevator, hard beds, frig, hot plate and microwave. Noise is at a premium with a bus by every second from 6am-11pm. however earplugs are the answer. You could not ask for better service and our stay was perfect. Not for someone looking for posh, but if you are on a budget and want the real deal, this is the place. Walking distance to everywhere. We are looking forward to returning again next year and if there is room here count us in.

Enjoyed our stay here in a huge room with 2 doubles and a single, was a little noisy however turning on the fan and shutting windows fixed that. We prepaid our room and the staff wanted us to sign the credit card voucher was a bit ify about this and showed them my creditcard statement of proof of payment, they said there boss wanted it done, never did it and wasnt asked again, probably was OK but being Mexico? Anyhow the place was clean, a request by the hotel for a maid tip seemed strange for a hotel? We didnt mind as we thought they probably dont get much.
Stayed in Posada Roger last time and found the rooms here were much cleaner.

Friends and I traveled to Puerto Vallarta for New Year's Eve. We all chose to stay at the Belmar again. This was my 3rd time to stay there and I fell in love with it even more than before. I'm already booked to stay there again in April! The Belmar is the only hotel I consider now when I visit Puerto Vallarta. The owner, Maria, is the sweetest lady and all of her staff are so friendly and welcoming. I've never been so warmly welcomed or received such personal service at any other hotel anywhere else in the world.

The artwork throughout the entire hotel is a really nice touch. I always enjoy visiting each floor to see what new artwork has been added since my last visit. It's like my own private art gallery.

As other reviewers have mentioned, there can be a lot of street noise, but ear plugs work fine for most people. You can also request a room off the main street when you make your reservation. The hotel provides filtered water on each floor, which is a really nice thing to have in Mexico.

If you're looking for a basic, spotlessly clean, comfortable, centrally located hotel in downtown Puerto Vallarta, the Hotel Belmar is absolutely perfect! It is my favorite hotel in PV. For the price and the location, the Belmar can't be beat!

You can check out my previous reviews of the Belmar to check out photos I've taken.

I stayed there for US$25.00 per night through PriceTraveDotCom, 25% lower than their walk-in rate of MX$400.00. What makes this hotel special is first the staff - wonderful, friendly, helpful and kind people, second the really evocative artwork throught the hotel, but especially the pieces opposite the front desk. Room and shower were small but very clean - good firm bed and hot high-pressure shower. Noise is an issue if you stay in one of the front rooms with a balcony with partial sea-view, but can be easily remedied with a good set of earplugs. I will come back here again but pay an extra MX$100.00 pesos for a front double room so as to have more space. I would not recommend room 28, however - shower too small.
