Location is excellent, view of the ocean is incredible! Make sure you get a room with a balcony facing the ocean and a fridge in your room. Bed was very comfortable. Pool area is excellent nice warm pool.

Martha, the manager upgraded our room after the first night and we were very pleased with the rest of our stay. We bought the "inclusive" breakfast and really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. There are so many wonderful places to eat in Puerto Vallarta, I'm glad we didn't partake in the "all-inclusive" meal plan, except for breakfast.

The Playa Los Arcos was part of the hotel that we stayed at, so we had access to it as well. The people are very friendly, especially the bar tender "Oscar" who kept the drinks flowing non stop. The view is amazing. The pool is quite lovely and relaxing. This trip was just a short getaway for my fiance's birthday,...

We did not stay at Los Arcos but we noticed they offered a Saturday evening fiesta. We like fiestas and continue to search for a great fiesta in Puerto Vallarta. However, this is NOT one of them!! The food was nothing special and the actual entertainment was short and quick.

Not what we thought ~ beach was busy with vendors and while polite we felt the selling was excessive. Buffet style all inclusive food was very good. The location of this hotel is absolutely perfect for getting out and about on foot to restaurants, shops and malecon.

We have been staying at Playa Los Arcos every year for the last 6 or 7 years, we love going back there. Every year they have added something new.

I've been here for about four hours and find myself wishing I had booked my trip earlier so as not to be stuck in this place. Room smells musty, windows don't open, the floor was not cleaned/full of sand when I got here, and the towels are so old they're grey instead of white. I should not be paying *three...

We left the friendly confines of a small hotel down the street to spend our last three nights here. The front desk personnel were ok but certainly not friendly, informative or helpful.
