I had never been to Puerto Vallarta before so I wasn't really sure what to expect in general. I handed over control to my friend to make a plan, which included staying at this lovely hotel. Lots of great things to say about this place. The location is perfect, in the romantic area of town and right on the beach....

We arrived in town without reservations. After shopping around for rooms at about half a dozen smaller hotels we decided to see how much a price difference it would be... Surprised that it was in the same price range as other hotels with half the quality, we immediately booked! Stayed 3 happy nights right on the beach and glad that...

We stayed at their smaller property last year but this year really enjoyed having a balcony over the pool and waking up to see the ocean. Just fabulous! It's not a fancy hotel but the staff is always working and working hard to keep it clean and provide great service. Santiago was super helpful to set up chairs ea morning...

To be clear we would go back to this hotel. Here is our story. I had emailed ahead to make certain we had an ocean view, balcony, and dinner on the beach. Had a few responses but it did not materialize. It was my wife birthday and our 35 wedding anniversary so I wanted it to be special. When we...

Sergio, Estevan and Palmira are incredible. They cover the entire beach day in and day out and do they ever hustle! They never forget an order and are always polite and fun. They deserve top honours for a job well done! Our suggestion is to develop some way to share the snack menu with patrons on the beach.. Flyers would...

We picked Playa Los Arcos because of its location and we were not disappointed. There are dozens of great restaurants within a short walk. It is also just a couple of blocks away from the Malecon and markets. Our room and the common areas are well kept and clean. The decor is old. The furniture in the room is old....

Food was very Mexican but you could always find something to eat. Breakfasts were the best. Very difficult to get beach service for drinks & we were all inclusive. Sergio was busy chatting up a young woman & when I asked if there was a reason he was not serving us, he told me management wanted him to get sales...

We have stayed at this hotel for two years in a row. No complaints. Our first room did not meet our expectations so later in the evening on the day of check in we went to the front desk and nicely explained our concerns. They couldn't do anything that night but the next day they changed us into a much...
