We arrived on first night about one in the morning we told people behind the desk never been here before and we would want to see what it was like. We no sooner got a room and change our clothes and they announced the place was closing in 10 minutes. Nobody at the front desk every mentioned that they were about to close. when we complained to the people behind the desk they couldn’t care less. They said sorry about your luck. Don’t waste your time with this rip off go anywhere Spartacus

You must be a confused! This is simple not true. Why? Because we are closing entrance door exactly one hr before closing at 1am, and Friday and Saturday 8am next day. After one o'clock no one has a access to the spa. Nobody getting to the place at least 1 hr before closing. Than at 1 40am we have prerecorded announcement in Spanish, English and French ., that we are closing in 20 minutes. So your 10 minutes statement dost not much. Also hours of operation are posted in the entrance. Sorry that you got confused.

My husband I were in PV last week for our first time, and we ventured into Spartacus a few times while we there. Its a very welcoming business, that was pristine and accommodating. The huge hot tub was relaxing, the saunas were very clean, and their open roof top was a great to place to relax and grab some fresh air. I also loved that we could purchase anything that we might need, right in the center of facility. ( Drinks, lube, poppers, etc.) We met some VERY hot men, from all over the world. A few in particular, we put right into put top 5 of all time. ( Evil grin.) The staff was very sweet, and my massage was a beautiful experience. I love that have plenty of dark corners and open spaces if you enjoy a little exhibitionism. We just rebooked for gay pride in May, and we VERY much look forward to making some more great memories at Spartacus. I must do for all gay male travelers.

A little disappointing this time around. Maybe because I am mid-50s? There is however lots of pretty men and activity to see. You just may not be allowed to participate. Could be a bit cleaner and several of the shower handles are broken off making it difficult to turn on the water and control temp.

Thanks for your review. You must to visit us around the New Year because this particular day clients broke two shower handles in one day. They were replaced next businesses day. Also I can assure you that sauna is sparkling clean before the opening bell.
Hoping the next time you will have more luck. Saludos

I have been traveling to PV for about 7 years and first tried this place 2 years ago with low expectations. Boy was I wrong! This place has everything which is why I keep going back. It gets better and better with each visit. It is popular with locals and visitors which makes it even more appealing. Management and staff are very professional and welcoming. They have created a clean, safe fun environment and are constantly updating to keep it interesting. Very very hot! PV gay community is fortunate to have such a great place like this. Best times seem to be after work or beach time from around 6 to 9 pm or anytime on weekends. Unlike the bar scene you will not be bored here!

Puerto Vallarta has been enjoying it's moment of worldwide gay tourist attraction and fame. Even for the most reserved and discreet, Spartacus is a Must See. The visitors are worldwide with the crowd being a typically younger group than these type of establishments. These are a lot of handsome locals and Mexican tourist mostly from Mexico City and Guadalajara. It is Caliente. There is generally something there for everyone. If you are a Latino man fan, then this is the place to go. Forget Anthropology and the straight strippers, these are authentic gay and bisexual Latinos who are there to get off. Just go with the flow, don't stalk, avoid being overly aggressive and you will soon catch the attention of someone mutually attractive. Take it to your room or indulge in the play areas. Don't be surprised if that action slowly converges into group play. Everyone is respectful of each other and simple body language will indicate an invitation to participate or subtle indication to just watch.

You will leave and probably return another time before u leave. Just use common sense guys and play in your league. The comments from the full figure queens that complained about snobiness isn't anything I have seen. Obviously if your pushing 50+ and carrying 250+ lbs you need to be realistic. But, again there is something there for everyone.

Lots of California Latinos visit there as well. With non stop flights from San Diego, Orange County, LA, SFO for R/T fares less than $300, Puerto Vallarta and the hot action at Spartacus is like hitting the jackpot. If you are n2 latinos, this place is like being cast into the stage set of your favorite all male movie. It's up to you what role you want to play. ️‍️‍⬆️⬇️↔️
