Terrific location in old town, friendly staff. Beautiful pool(s) right on the beach, great restaurants in the area, handicraft markets and good shopping for every price range, excellent little coffee bars for breakfast within a couple of blocks, spectacular artwork on Malecon Boardwalk along the beach to town center 20 mins away, breathtaking scenery. Definitely book Junior Suite or above...

Location is great. Staff are friendly. Food is decent. However, I paid extra for an oceanfront room and got a room that I could not be in until 10:30 at night. It was the most expensive torture that I have endured. Room 142 is apparently directly above a very large noisy vent in the kitchen. The noise was like sitting...

Our 3rd time staying at this hotel, we love it, the location is the best, right near malecon and lots of restaurants and bars, staff is super, and they have the same staff since we've been coming, over 10 years, some been working 20-30 years here (Jesus the doorman)! They remember us every time which makes us feel welcomed. Restaurant...

I let my husband make our one week PV vacation plans, so that was my error. Yes the hotel is one of the oldest on the beach, but it is dire need of a remodel. Room was dark - not enough light. A lamp lightbulb needed replacing and they promptly replaced when I brought to their attention. Location is good...

I hesitate writing a review as I almost want to keep this place all to ourselves. I have travelled significantly internationally as a flight attendant and the care, service and attention to detail was second to none. We are a young family and although it is a family friendly hotel, it wasn't crawling with screaming children. There were families and...

This place does everything it should do and in the heart of the beach district. Great restaurants etc. walkable. It is a good value, to boot. Don't expect luxury. You can also walk to the Muertos pier to take a water taxi or boat trip.

Friendly staff, checkin was good,. This hotel has a rustic Mexican atmosphere. The hotel rooms are quite basic and fairly small. The things we did like were the public areas including the restaurant mi pueblito which has great breakfasts and live entertainment in the evenings. This is a beachfront hotel and they offer beach chairs for there guests. There is...

This is our second time staying here and this hotel always delivers, as long as you don't have unreasonable expectations. This is an inexpensive hotel in the perfect location in Puerto Vallarta. The rooms and hotel are not fancy, but they work and you are close to everything. The pools are nice and the beach is one of the best...
