Stayed in room 106 at Posada de Roger for 5 nights in early December. The hotel has 48 rooms and I requested a room in the courtyard (bottom-floor) due to mobility issues.
The hotel is in an excellent location, near I. Vallarta and on B. Badillo. In the middle of everything. If people want to visit "real Vallarta," you can't do better than this location.
The first night, I thought I'd die ---- there was so much noise and a loud crying baby next door and the pool upstairs was taken over by around 20 youngsters screaming their guts out. I slept with earplugs that night and still didn't get a decent night's sleep.
Next day, the screaming people checked out. It became peaceful. However, as the week went on, the noise didn't die down enough. The hotel has a policy (and sign) that it should be quiet from 11pm on. That didn't stop people (men staying in the hotel, conversing) from carrying on a conversation in the courtyard at 2 and 3am. Woke me up a couple of nights. They weren't yelling, but noise carries and they had big voices --- at 2am.
My room was a double bed (very hard) with a good-sized dresser and closet and two chairs. Nice bathroom, other than the water in the shower taking about 10 minutes to get warm. Floors are tile. Small room had cable TV and fan, phone and A/C. Also, three mirrors in the room, so two people could be there and have the basics. There is no hairdryer however. No outside window, for light. One window above the door.
Without the noise and the very hard bed, I would have had no problem with my room.
The staff is wonderful. Knowledgable, helpful and friendly. Even people who called me from the States commented on how efficient and friendly they were, at the desk.
Fredy's Tucan restaurant is off the courtyard. Excellent breakfast food. I only had one breakfast there (chilaquiles verde) but could have eaten there every morning, it was so good. It's also packed. Very popular.
There is a small pool on the 2.5 floor (in between 2 and 3) and a community kitchen (good for leftovers from all the excellent restaurants in the area) on the top floor. Someday, I'll use both the pool and the kitchen. As it was, since it was raining much of the time I was there, I didn't walk upstairs as it was slippery and too cold to use the pool.
Have to agree with a person who mentioned the courtyard-waxing, in a previous review. It rained for three days straight while I was there last week (12/6-8) -- doesn't usually rain in PV at that time. When the rain was over, the maintenance people started waxing the courtyard tiles and the smell of whatever they use was asphyxiating. Beware.
Two nights in a row, the procession (related to the Fiesta of Our Lady of Guadalupe, which takes place from 12/1 to 12/12 each year) passed by the hotel. Delightful.
