My wife and I recently stayed at this 'Boutique" hotel this month (April 2013). This is an adult only hotel and is small at only about 36 rooms over 4 floors.
We had a small room (#203) that included a king bed (very comfortable) and washroom with shower. Only rooms ending with 05 or 06 had balcony's overlooking the street and the Los Arcos Suites hotel across the way. Even though the room was small, it was clean and suited our needs. The small air conditioner worked well and kept us comfortable sleeping.
The hotel's street 'Manuel M Dieguez' is a cul-de-sac so there is no though traffic which made for a quiet stay. We were able to walk to the Playa los Muertos beach which was 1 1/2 short blocks away. Multiple restaurants, bars, cafes of the Zona Romantica are short walks away.
Casa Dona Susana is part of the Los Arcos hotel group which includes the Los Arcos Suites across the street, and the large Playa Los Arcos down the street. As a guest of Casa Dona Susana you have the use of all the pool, restaurant, bar and beach of the Playa Los Arcos hotel. Casa Dona Susana does not have a restaurant or bar, so this is handy.
The best feature of Casa Dona Susana is its rooftop deck and pool. The hotel has an open central atrium with trees growing up from the main floor up through the 4th floor deck creating shade and a pleasant ambiance. There is also a gazebo area with bistro chairs and a change room. Multiple lounge chairs are available. During our stay the pool area was never crowded. It could accommodate about 30 people, but there were never more than 5 there! It made a great place to relax without the hustle of the beach areas. You are able to bring drinks and alcohol to the pool deck, but it must be in plastic for obvious reasons.
The staff was efficient, if a little distant. Typically would not talk to you unless you spoke to them first.
A handy thing is the café 1/2 block down Manuel M Dieguez at Olas Altas that takes up the corner of the sidewalk. Its called 'Cafesto' and its a great place for coffee in the morning and a light breakfast. You can sit and people watch as pedestrians walk though the outdoor coffee area under the porch roofing and trellised walls. Sounds strange, but it works and is not disruptive.
Casa Dona Susana is a great location to use as a base to explore the Romantic Zone, Rio Cuale, Malecon and Centro areas of Puerto Vallarta.
