“Decent hotel”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Location: Great to Best. Very close to Old Town or Romantic Zone. Close to restaurants and shops
Cleanness and staff: Very clean. There a few things you might consider I stayed there for almost a week, but they did not change bed sheets. I guessed you need to talk with them. I think they should change every 2-3 days.
Staff is friendly, but their English is limited, especially in the restaurant as they kept bringing the wrong food we ordered ( we ordered a simple dish like fried eggs). You need to explain for them to get it right.
Annoying things: Wifi. If you are not lucky, you are in the "No Wifi" room. I asked to change the room, but they did not want change the room, even we stayed for a whole week. Hot water: I think the hotel needs to fix this.
Toilet water: you have to wait a long time to flush the toilet. I may be smelly.
You need to book and pay online before you get into here because they give you very different price -something that you need to negotiate in Mexico, even the high standard service like hotel.
Swimming pool: very tiny. I did not use as there were 2-3 kids and they occupied the whole swimming pool.
Taxi: to the airport from the hotel ~ one fifty pesos. I think it's pretty cheap. We gave out 50 peso for tip.

Room Tip: Restaurant: La Dolce Vita. Awesome Italian food. The Swedes: great good. A bit p...

The staff was great. The room was great. The bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I have ever experienced! The location is perfect. Breakfast in the roof top dining room was very good.
From now on we will stay at Hotel Porto Alegre every time we visit P. V. and forget the all inclusive resorts.

Room Tip: Be sure to eat at Gabys

Excellent hotel, wonderful staff with excellent English skills. All the staff at the Porto Alegre could not do enough for us. They went out of their way to accommodate us with everything we needed.
Breakfast made to order with an outstanding cook. We will definitely stay there again, probably next year...

My girlfriend and I decided to stay here this year from March 1st till Mar 8th after looking at 100 places. Our friends who were already down there told us about this hotel in their area. We had checked trip advisor but there were no photos and only 2 reviews. We were hesitant but decided to book for two days. When we arrived we were very pleased to see how clean and new it was!
Friendly staff.
Perfect location
An amazing HOT breakfast on the roof top every morning included.
A small sun tanning area and a dipping pool on roof.
The workout room is very small but good for two people (if you don't mind being seen from people outside).
There is also two computers with internet that are free of charge to use!
The rooms are very clean and a good size for what you are paying, We had a king size bed with a 32 inch flat screen tv and A/C
Washrooms are very nice for Mexico standards. (some mornings there was not a lot of hot water for showers.)
Great view and a balcony.
No kitchenette/fridge

If possible the staff will show you different rooms to pick from!

We would definitely come back!

Room Tip: 3rd floor rooms have no AC unit noise rooms 104/204/304 have great views and balcony
