Great hotel, Marta and Itzel were efficient and helpful. We were trying to get a room assignment for a room under three nights, the thing that I didn’t know Is that all of the rooms are wonderful and comfortable. We hope next time we can stay longer.

Very friendly staff who greet you with smiles, who are helpful, accommodating and informative about the area and guest needs/requests. Very clean and kept hotel with unique rooms and comfortable bedding. Breakfast was fantastic with fresh prepped fruit and more. The view of the river is nice even though the location is busy and bustling: close the windows and it all disappears. Thank you much for a great stay and look forward to next trip!

This little boutique hotel is a hidden gem! The location is perfect, in Zona Romantica along the river, close enough to all the action but distant enough to enjoy some peace and quiet. The hotel is full of character, the rooms were clean, the price was good, and the service was great! We highly recommend this place for a nice getaway.

Exclent place very clean, and friendly staff. Breakfast was included. Room is above garage is pictured here very big spacious with great authentic Mexican style decorations. The hot water is hard to figure out but works. I think the showered faucet was right for hot instead of left.

They had a comfortable bed (loved the pillows and comforter), quaint atmosphere, AWESOME staff!!! Martha, Jerry and the rest were incredible. Restaurant recommendations were spot on. Transportation was always available. Unlike the rest of PV, very affordable.

This will be my 2nd time at this hidden gem. Garlands Del Rio definitely always gives me a amazing experience that will forever have me coming back. The booking process is very easy and if you book directly through the site they sometimes offer the deal of free breakfast daily. The hospitality is really awesome, everyone we encountered were super sweet and were there to make our experience the best. This hotel is very unique offering beautiful European themed rooms that gives everyone staying their own personal experience; the location is in the zona romantica which allows you to be in the center of many restaurants, coffee shops, souvenirs, beach, and much more. I would 100 percent recommend to anyone visiting this great city! I felt very safe and secure.

Our experience here @ Garlands Del Rio was amazing. Ofelia and Martha were phenomenal and made the experience 20x better. We booked with AIRBNB and had a horrible experience and had to book this hotel very last minute and i’m glad that we did. The continental breakfast was delicious and miss having every morning. The hotel was peaceful, architecture was beautiful, and the rooms made it feel as if we were in a castle. We will definitely be back next time we visit Puerto Vallarta. We’ve decided that this boutique hotel is going to be our go-to spot EVERY TIME. All in all our experience was out of this world and we enjoyed every minute of it. Xx

The suites in This Hotel are not separate rooms They are just like large rooms with extra beds but they are comfortable for a family As long as you can share one bathroom. The pool was warm, the jacuzzi along the River you have to Ask to Be heated and the location is ideal a few blocks from the beach

We had a four night stay at the Garland Del Rio Hotel and stayed in the Marquess Penthouse room. It was a large room with a large bathroom featuring an open-air shower. Pretty cool. I booked directly with the hotel and by doing a delicious breakfast was included each day. The hotel is located in Zona Romantica , alongside a small stream, and about 6 blocks away from the ocean. The staff were awesome and able to answer questions and make recommendations for things to see and do, and how to get there. Pro tip - they have a sister hotel 2 blocks away with an awesome rooftop bar and infinity pool. It is a great place to watch the sun set and relax. In addition, we had the BEST meal of our lives at Tintoque, about a block away. If you want a nice place to stay, away from the busy streets of PV, make this your home base.

Always a pleasant stay with Martha’s hospitality. I’ve stayed at this property now four times, each time a different lovely room. I really enjoy the people who work here, the homemade breakfast, and the quiet location near the river. It’s safe, clean, and very boutique. The welcome margarita is a nice touch as well!
