Great facility, central location to beach, shopping and restaurants, front desk staff are all friendly and helpful, awesome massage service, the heated pool is awesome, secure, clean, have stayed here several times over the years and thoroughly enjoyed each visit. While there were some WiFi issues a few years back, those are all fixed and had no connection issues.

We stayed at this hotel/condo for the second time this past November. We were once again very pleased with both the service and the accommodations. The pool is immaculate and is meticulously maintained. There is great security and the hotel staff, including John Paul at the front desk are always very accommodating and welcoming. We stayed in room 703 and...

Very quiet neighborhood. Clean. Friendly staff. Helpful staff. Close to the beach. Excellent little market a block a way. Pharmacy. Easy to catch a cab too. I've stayed here many times. But have to admit that when I first started staying there rooms were 46 USD a night. Now they are over 100 per night. So, I'm not able to...

Thank you Patrick for your review. in October 2016 our prices were still from 46.00usd/night for the lowest floors to 103.00usd/night for the penthouse. The prices did not change for that period of the year for 7-8 years. It is true that the prices for october 2017 will see an increase due mainly to the renovations made to the building...

We felt the service has gone downhill. The front desk team were friendly enough, but it smelled of smoke and they were not overly accommodating. Bring pesos, because everything has a price: beach towels need deposit and rental feel as do the keys (no rental fee). The overall appearance of the hotel is run down and the rooms could use...

Thank you for the review, we value your opinion. Smoking is not allowed anymore in the office. All condos are indepently owned but most owners are joining the team and renovate their condos. We continue improving the building to give our customers the best experience possible.

I stayed in PV for 5 nights. The first two nights were in el Centro at Boana Torre Malibu. I would definitely recommend staying here. It's close to all fun things to do in town. Blue chairs is just down the stairs. The staff is very friendly and accommodating.

I have stayed at Boana Torre Malibu several times and have been relatively satisfied. The staff is responsive and friendly, and the pool is great - no kids! - and you often have it to yourself. It's all openly gay with a pleasant and neighborly vibe. It does feel like family. The public areas are kept clean and secure. The...

My partner And I stayed at the Boana Torre Malibu the last week in March. Everything was perfect! We had an amazing ocean view room and could even hear the waves crashing when the patio door sliders were completely open (which they were for every day of our vacation). The apartment had all of the necessary items we needed, including...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Boana Torre Malibu is the largest gay condo-hotel in Puerto Vallarta. The hotel is also open to heterosexuals. Torre Malibu is near the famous Playa Los Muertos, a gay beach known worldwide for its famous ``blue chairs`` and green chairs. A great selection of restaurants and a lively nightlife await you just a few steps from the hotel. At Boana Torre Malibu, we offer a wide selection of rooms, which are condos actually! You will have the feeling of staying in a true suite rather than in a simple hotel room. ... more   less

“The higher the floor the better the view. However I did stay in 401 and liked it better than the upper floor with the better view.”
