there are lots of cheap hotels in this area of Puerto Vallarta...the old town, the funkier part, which is where I like to be, but this was easily the best for one reason...the owners are just so friendly and helpful, they genuinely want you to have a good time. Amongst the friendliest hotels I have ever stayed in anywhere.
It's all pretty basic but everything was adecuate...lots of hot water, clean, drinking water, etc.
the location is also great as it is just a few blocks from the beach
The only down-side was the noisy bar next door open til 3 or 4 in the morning with very loud music. Some of the rooms are quieter, we changed rooms and it made a big difference. However if you are a light sleeper, like my wife, you'll still hear the noise...and reluctantly we had to change hotels because of this. On the other hand although they are buiding new rooms at the moment there was no noise from this as they didn't start until 11 by which time we were out exploring.
they have a proper safe for you valuables, but make sure they put them in the safe. The first day they had placed them in an accessible drawer above the safe and as there are a lot of people (friends, family, assistants going in and out, this made me a bit uneasy once I realized it.
