I was here 11 years ago and I loved it so in my return to Vallarta I was able to get two days in a one bedroom suite. Loved it! Room was clean, very large, beach is nice and very private but still close to the action. The bathroom had a sewer smell and perhaps they need to be updated or better serviced. Lots of construction in the adjacent property but that is outside their control. This is the perfect boutique hotel. It is great to sleep at the sound of the waves. Service was top notch.

Room Tip: All the rooms are nice but for total privacy ground rooms are best, all the others have balconies an...

We have vacationed in PV six times in the last four years,moving from Nuevo to the hotel zone into town and lastly to Vallarta shores, where I beleive we have found A home!
The location is fantastic,a short walk to great restuarants, beach clubs and bars.we rented suite
Four and loved it,great view right on the beach, three steps down is the common pool,and down from that an entrance/exit to the beach. Which is quiet and beautiful . v shores is pet friendly and we brought our dog,
Great spot for morning walk!
Made friends with some vendors , great people, Martin (mahi mahi, oysters) Javier (massage) yes there are vendors but most stay near the resorts to the north. Daniel and entire staff are very friendly and
Eager to do whatever they can do to make your stay great! We had the opportunity to see the penthouses and some of the other suites, you really can't go wrong with any of them! If you don't want the bustle of an A.I. Resort we highly recommend
a stay here. We have already
Booked our room for next vacation and can't wait!

This Condo is really GREAT!

Fantastic view and on a nice location ( nereby Otas Atlas ) in Zona Romantica. This Area in Old Vallarta is very romantic and friendly. Our Condo ( nr. 3) is on the 1 St floor and got enough space for a pleasant 2 weeks stay. Every morning our breakfast at the balcony, at this moment they are working on a new project next to the condo. On the beach they are working on a new restaurant / swimming pool BUT THIS WILL DEFINITELY WILL NOT DISTURB YOUR MORNING. The constructors are quiet and not shooting at all. The Rental Manager Daniel and his team are very helpful and service-minded. The whole condo is complete with everything you need, every day they are cleaning ( including bath-towels ) your room. A real comfortable and cozy apartment.

When you are arriving at the airport, take a cab for 20 USD or 150 Pesos. That is a good deal!

Out check room is 1pm and when their is space you can have the room, otherwise you check out and stay relaxing on the beach!

Recommended Restaurants : Archies Wok ( Asian Food ) Blue Shrimps ( Fish Restaurant at the beach ) and La Palapas ( High level * Food at the beach )
Barcelona ( Spanish Tapas Restaurant with very nice view )

Bar: Reinas Bar ( cozy, nice music, very nice owner and GREAT Staff )


Area Hotel: quiet, relaxing BUT Gay oriented ( You have to know this, If this is a issue don't stay in this area )

Next year again.

Room Tip: Number 3 of Number 5 for a 2 bedroom Condo!

The hotel is on the south end of the romantic zone right on the beach. We had room #4 and it was great. I was concerned that the pool was directly accessible from my balcony to anyone at the hotel, but to our surprise, despite being fully booked we were the only ones that used it, in essence we had a beautiful private pool overlooking the beach.

We had a small kitchen with a new refrigerator and small stove with gas burners complete with cookware, cutlery, and serving dishes. Only the bedroom had AC, which is normal for Mexico. The bathroom was large and well lit.

The hotel itself has no elevator, so if you pick a higher floor room, expect to use a lot of stairs since rooms have large 10-12 foot ceilings. Each room, except g.round floor have private balconies with a small table perfect for sunset dinners.

They appear to be starting construction next door, so expect some construction foot traffic, I never noticed any noise.

Room Tip: Go for a 2nd floor or higher room, the views are worth it! The penthouses are amazing!

Upon our arrival we were greeted and shown our room. Daniel the manager and his assistant Dave were outstanding as well as housekeeper Felic. The entire staff went out of there way to make sure we were comfortable as well. The hotel as well as the grounds were kept up and the maintenance was flawless. All the guests were friendly as well. The building is very secure and all the guests have keys to the front door as well as the pool. The location has it's own private beach and lounge chairs. We ate lunch out and cooked our own dinner in the evenings while watching the beautiful sunsets. We are planning a return in 2015 and renting a penthouse which comes with a chef. He buys the food and at the end of your stay you pay for the groceries and tip.

Our top two loves in PV are the beaches and the fun of Old Town Vallarta (Romantic Zone). So Vallarta Shores is perfection for us. Each room is clean, comfortable and very cozy, as they are decorated with a wonderful Mexican flare! The kitchen, dining, and bedroom looked out to the beautiful sand and surf which are at the doorstep. You can spend the day shopping, dining, swimming, guzzling tequila (ha) and easily stumble back to your room. Location is perfect! The only negative is that the expansive view will soon become restricted on the completion of the new building next door. It's being built ON the flip'n beach! My husband has a 2nd negative... there is no on site restaurant. However, we were told that the Vallarta Shores owner(s) are arranging access to the facilities that the new resort next door will have.

I recommend going to the Vallarta Shores website. You can look into each unit and there is a webcam too!

Room Tip: Book 2nd floor or above, unless you can't do stairs. Ground floor has small parking lot in fron...

The artisan nature of these rooms is timeless, and the rooms are large and lovely. Brick combined elegantly with beautiful wood and beautiful art. You could stay weeks as they have full kitchen facilities, at least ours did. The bed was nice, warm water water plentiful, and the view gorgeous with private beach just outside the front door. So why only 3 stars? Well I'd love to edit this in a few weeks if Trip Advisor allowed that but they don't. The problem was that the staff was so non-enthusiastic to see us. It has that feel of a place being "bought out" where the staff is not excited and sort of begrudgingly do their tasks. There were some staff eventually we met that were a bit cheerier. If I was the owner or manager, I'd work on staff morale as this is really one of the most beautiful classic hotels we've seen in Puerto Vallarta. Would be great for entertaining as has a large beautiful table and balcony. To be fair, we were there in the lowest of the low season and my sense was we were the only ones in the hotel, and I have seen hotels lose their enthusiasm when they have so few guests. We'll try this hotel again, as the rooms were really beautiful.
