We have stayed at Playa los Arcos 6 times for a total of more than two months. By all accounts, this hotel is great for the average and adventursome traveller. Cost, location, service, etc are all great and that is why we return. However; this year will be our last here - and to PV in general. Because,,, every year the beach vendors increase in numbers and peskiness. This year put us over the top. We spent the first week up the coast in Sayulita. This year there appeared to be quite a few more vendors canvassing the beach there. In Sayulita we spent a week saying no thankyou... again, and again, and again,,,,, One informed me he was riding the bus up from PV since the competition was too great. When we arrived to PV, we saw what he meant. Approx every 15 seconds we were approached to buy some trinket that was readily available anywhere in town for 1/4 the price. It was like shooing flies, all day - they were relentless and annoying. Even at night while trying to dine beachside, they were interrupting our dinner to sell the crap. One after the other!! They will interrupt your conversation without hesitation and talk above you if you ignore them. After two weeks of this, we decided enough is enough, the annoyance is greater than the pleasure of laying on the beach. It is not relaxing. I will be writing the mayor about this as well.
