Brisas del Mar is a small, personal hotel perched on a hill overlooking the bay. It is just a 1/2 block off one of the nicest parts of Playa Los Muertes near some of the best beach restaurants (La Palapa, El Dorado). You are very close to Olas Altas a main drag in the Zona Romantica. I think it is a good value and location for PV. That's how I judge a hotel. It doesn't make sense to me for reviewers to rate a 3-star versus a 5-star standard.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool deck is sunny and enormous. There is a family-run restaurant in operation on the deck. They serve a simple, filling brunch buffet for 60 pesos. They also serve cocktails including Margaritas. Many condo owners and long-term guests who live in the building hang out here and they are very nice to short-term guests.
Our room was cheery, clean and fine. We had a wonderful view of the Bay from the kitchen window and our own balcony. The furnishings were simple, rustic Mexican furniture. The kitchenette was clean and sported colorful wall tile. The bed was very hard which is typical for this type of hotel in Mexico. We were fine with a very firm bed, but others might not be. The back of the hotel is just off of the main highway which is also how the taxi will bring you (tell the taxi "Hacia Arriba" so he knows the reception lobby is on the upward, high side). There is one building behind Brisas del Mar shielding the noise from the highway. We did not find noise a concern. At night, there is very little traffic.
If you want to walk to the beach or the rest of Zona Romantica, you will need to walk down a series of stairs and cobblestone ramps. Some would consider this part of its charm. The hotel is on a ridge above the beach and the Zona Romantica. This is why the hotel has great views of the Bay and City. Taxis can take down those with physical limitations for about $3, The South end of Playa Los Muertes and the Zona Romantica have a concentrated alternative community. If this bothers some, they should stay further North, but this would be there loss. I would not stay anywhere else in PV.
