Having just returned from sunny PV, back to the snowy Northeast I already miss the Hotel Rio. Charming with a wonderful staff, I find the hotel an extreme value for the money. This was my second stay in six months and I found the experience wonderful each time.
Steps from the Waterfront, Isla Rio Cuale and the Art Galleries, you can not get a better location for Centro Puerto Vallarta.
Being on the busiest street in town, noise is a factor. If you are a light sleeper do not take a room on the Morelos side of the building.
Having read the criticisms of the hotel, I understand where the critics are coming from. This is not a luxury hotel. It does not have full amenities. Out side of Centro there are districts that would better suit the needs of those travelers-Nuevo Vallarta,The Marina and Hotel Districts.
Frankly, Hotel Rio is perfect for a traveler who can relax not become hypercritical and embrace the local scene.
The restaurant--Coexist Cafe-- is wonderful with great food and reasonable prices.
