I think for Puerto Vallarta, this is the best location if you want to be in the heart of the old part of town and right on the beach. We were here a couple nights right before New Years and it was crazy busy. The beach was so busy, we didn't really ever hang out there. The pool area was fun but a bit tight, not a lot of lying out area. And for some reason the workers kept throwing balloons in the pool, and we couldn't get away from the balloons. We have a 18 month old and thought the little kiddie pool would be perfect, but it was too cold. Most of the pool area doesn't get sun during the winter time. But the other pools are heated.
The room was dark and dingy. Old and not renovated in a while. However, our sister's room was even older and less modern, so I guess ours was renovated a bit. But I believe there are some renovated rooms that are probably much nicer. Our room also had paper thin walls and door so we could hear everything from the street. It was soooo loud. We couldn't sleep til the club closed around 2am.
The service is fine, nothing amazing. Just fine.
The location though is perfect I think. Not in Big resort world, still has some character and in the heart of the romantic zone and the Malecon. Perfect for walkers and explorers.
I would stay here again but in a better renovated room with a view.
