This hotel was interesting, mainly because of the price that was surprisingly low for staying in the Romantic Zone. We had a suite hat was newly renovated at the 3rd floor of the hotel, with a direct and gorgeous view of the ocean. The room was very spacious and had air-conditioning. And yes, the beds were very hard. We had two big balconies, but could only use one because the other had the air-conditioning unit, which was emitting a lot of heat. I felt sorry for the others who had only one balcony with the air-conditioning unit on it. The hotel was very clean, and was under construction during our stay, but the noise started only late in the morning. The staff was very helpful with the restaurant reservations, but we felt that they were not very proactive for helping us. The other main quality of this hotel is the direct private beach (Los Muertos) with a lot of palapas. The staff was also assigned to help us by providing chairs, beach umbrellas and small tables. Food and beverages are not included and can be ordered, but we found the food too spicy. We felt that the emplacement of our hotel and the beachfront were better compared to the other popular hotels around and it was more quiet and calm. However, the locals and other families can still come in the front of this hotel on the public section transforming our beach day near a living hell between Christmas and the days after the New Year. Can you spell Annoying? It was indeed very loud most of our two weeks stay and I strongly advise anyone who prefer calm and wants to relax to avoid Puerto Vallarta or stay far from the center. But if you like to party, the Zona Romantico is the place. The hotel offers a breakfast, but it was borderline eatable every mornings. Moreover, we had to come early in the morning to make sure to have yogurt and cereal (the rest of the food was disappointing most of the time) because it went fast. Finally, the Wi-Fi offered in the hotel was very limited and only offered in the lobby. Even in the lobby, the Wi-Fi was hard to catch and very slow. We could barely speak on Skype or even surf the net depending on the number of people there. Trust me, it gets very frustrating. In conclusion, if you are looking for a place to stay in the Old-Vallarta, not far from the gay bars and near the Blue Chairs, you will get an hotel that worth the price despite its many flaws.
