The Belmar is close to many things in the old town of Puerto Vallarta. Walking one way takes you to a bridge across a river and to an outdoor market. The other way takes you into the old town. The beach is an easy walk and you are near shops, pharmacy, restaurants, bars and Taco stands on the streets.
The hotel is clean and the staff are great. Lorena and Itzel are good with speaking english. Lorena was at the desk. She's very pleasant to talk to.
It is a very noisy corner so if you want it a little quieter try to get an inside room. The beds are hard. There is plenty of hot water in the showers.
