Excellent value. The building is really a short stay apartment block as there is no reception or other hotel services except for daily maid service. Stayed in a self contained studio (small one bedroom in reality) with a kitchen for one week. There is free laundry, one full size washer and one full size drier. Roof top patio area is... More

You need to pick up key at hotel encino. If it was not for other reviews we would never have known. Email sent to both places remain unanswered. Thanks to the other tripadviser reviews or I would never have known. Otherwise place is good value for money and centrally located where a lot of the gay clubs are. That also... More

Love this place & would go back. It is charming, well cared for and very clean. Most of the time we had the whole place to ourselves. Pool was sparkling, plants lovingly maintained, the metalwork upstairs is beautiful. I loved it here, the 3 staff members are friendly and nice. Checking in at the Encino was easy, but they should...

This nice little hotel is located in the entertainment district. It is unmarked and you have to get the keys from Hotel Encino a few blocks away. The rooms are large, clean, well equipped and some have balconies. The staff are friendly and available. There is a very nice tiny pool on the roof and sunbathing/relaxing facilities as well as...

La Iguana is a very nice place like home, clean, good service, all facilities and confort. Good experience to saty in old vallarta town, everything is near, restaurants, shops, bars, malecon, and can walk safety. A little noisy by nights because of close bars in the area, but the experience to be there is different to other hotels, Lupita makes... More

As a young couple, we liked this hotel mainly because of the location (it is walking distance from the seafront and the restaurant/clubs) and also it is newly furnished (aside from the TV), with all the necessary appliances in the kitchen for a long stay. Se had a room on the back part of the hotel so it was very... More

Last January we stayed here 2 months and we very much enjoyed it. We are going back this winter for sure. We particularly appreciated Eduardo's kindness and Lupita is always smiling. Our accommodations were well appointed with everything we needed, very clean, smoke free except on the roof terrace. We highly recommend it. Antonio and Anna

We liked walking through the unmarked door off the sidewalk, we felt more included in the old town culture. 4 blocks to the park, 5 to the waterfront. Easy to walk north to the more touristy stuff. Check out Abuelito's on the beach & ask for Anastasio if you want a crazy local to chat your ear off and convince... More
