4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

I got a cheap online price and it was fine for that. I had a car, so I could get around. One needs a car or knowledge of the bus system for this hotel. Other than that, it was a nice room, nice restaurant and nice grounds.

Room Tip: Take a room in the tower back from the street. It was very nice and quiet.

Estimado huéped:

Agradezcemos mucho sus amables comentarios sobre Hotel Malibu. Efectivamente el hotel no se encuentra muy cercano al centro de la ciudad, aún así cuenta con una ubicación privilegiada, pues se encuentra sobre una de las avenidad principales de la ciudad y a un costado de un bonito centro comercial. Será un honor contar con su preferencia nuevamente.

We prefer to be right downtown but found this hotel to be about 40 to 50 dollars cheaper because it is not downtown. A taxi ride to downtown cost 60 to 70 pesos if you ask them to use the "taxi meter". Location became a non issue. Hotel was excellent. Rooms were very clean and pleasant, breakfast buffet was excellent and way beyond our expectations. all of the staff were great and very helpful. Grounds and pool were spotless. I have no complaints and would highly recommend it to anyone.

The way to get there is very convenient, easy to find on one of the most well known Avenues.
The rooms were clean and service was very nice. It is located next to La Gran Plaza mall so you can go walking and no worry about parking. Best option for price, quality and location.

Room Tip: Get the 4th or 5th floor of the 1st building. The mall has a big wheel fortune and at night has a ni...

Clean, friendly and accommodating, the Malibu Hotel is well priced and comfortable. The rooms have been renovated. the beds comfortable and they have a pool! The restaurant is only so-so, but they are right next to a big shopping mall which has many restaurants, some good shops and a cinema.
Being on Avenida Vallarta is convenient for me because it makes it so easy to find your way around.

It is an inexpensive and great deal for your money. I give it a Four Star just beause the beds are a little small and you an hear thru the walls but other than that excellent. The Staff from receptionist to Bell Boys (Jaime and Felipe) are top notch they go out their way to accomodate any needs you have and are very friendly and make you feel at home. Close to all the great and nice malls and restaurants. Only down part the airport is about 30 mins away. But definitely recommend this hotel

Hotel is older, but has been renovated. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Room was good. Water pressure was excellent! It was nice to have a mini fridge in the room. There is a small coffee maker in the room, but bring your own coffee if you don't like the Nescafé provided. Pool was heated, which the kids enjoyed. We did not eat in the restaurant. The mall next door is very nice. It was about a 70 peso cab ride to historic center.
