The staff at the hotel was great. Very helpful. The hotel itself is somewhat dated. We had a suite on the ocean which was spacious and clean but noisy due to beach activity. Great view. We ate breakfast at the beachfront restaurant. It is pretty clearly geared to the all inclusive crowd. Our server was pretty good but the food... More

Rooms were roomy & clean. We got the all inclusive so the buffet food was different every night. During the day they again had buffet; with quick foods for poolside service, like hamburgers, hot dogs, nachos, etc. Overall the customer service was excellent. We had a waitress named (Francis) who went out of her way to keep us happy. We... More

You can't beat Los Arcos' location. It is in a prime location and you can walk to most anything. The pools are very nice and its right on the beach. The downside? VERY LOUD. You can hear your next door neighbors, the music at the restaurant, and the people in the pool.

We were not looking for a kid friendly hotel - but it really wasn't much of a bother to us at all. We did get a room on the far side with a great view of the ocean. It was quiet, the a/c was very cold and maid service was excellent. We paid for the all inclusive option and ate... More

Always good to return to Playa Los Arcos. The staff is always helpful and friendly. The atmosphere is always fun and happy, a nice family oriented place to stay. You can go all inclusive if you wish, but we loved to go see our "family" at the other fine places to eat nearby. Change $ to Pesos at the bank... More

This hotel is on the beach and offers parking. It's location is great to walk the malecon or downtown. Los Muertos beach is good for swimming and water sports. The hotel itself isn't that great but for the price I don't think it can be beat. We didn't hand out there. The two meals we had were gross - the... More
