The hotel is a bit rustic but clean. It is on a secluded beach and a great place if you want to relax and do absolutely nothing but maybe read a book and meditate. The hotel has a restaurant and bar which was not opened on our arrival so we had to go out and explore for dinner. The only truly bad thing I have to say about the hotel is I felt it was extremely overpriced. We paid 1800 pesos for 1 room with 2 double beds for 3 people. I understand it is a beach front hotel however given the remote location, age of the hotel, tourism downturn and time of year I felt it very overpriced. We were the only guest in the hotel when we check in and I believe only 1 other room arrived after us. If the price were lower we would have stayed longer and I would be returning soon. If you are not looking for a fancy hotel or active vacation this is your place.

We spent 4 days/3 nights over the New Year's and it was wonderful. Getting there was a bit difficult (ended up hiring a taxi at the airport- was about a 2-3 hour trip) but well worth it. We were the only non-native Spanish speaking guests there. It is where the Mexicans vacation. The beach was unspoiled and went for miles. The room was clean, had a balcony and view of the ocean.Free Wifi that worked well for the most part in the room. If we went again though, we would try to book a room in the more ocean front building. (closer to the ocean). Pool was nice. Restaurant had great food (a lot of varieties of shrimp). Waves are a bit big which make swimming not possible far in the ocean but playing in the waves on the beach is fun. The only option back to Puerta Vallarta was a 7am bus which took about 2-3 hours (need to transfer to another bus if you want to get to the airport once you get to PV). Would definitely recommend this if you are looking for a quiet, relaxing vacation away from the resort/touristy areas.

We came across this hotel on a day trip from Purto Vallerta last year . This year we booked 3 nights . We loved the miles and miles of Virgin beach with so few people . The hotel is under new management and Al bends over backwards to make you happy . The restaurant staff who double as the cleaners are also wonderful . The hotel its self is shabby and old and needs a facelift . It nly has 9 rooms ( We loved it being small ) The pool area is beautiful and how close you are to the beach . The restaurant filled our needs however if we stayed longer the menu is limited . It needs more staff at busy times. The value for money was amazing. The treck to get there is worth it , 4 wheel drive or a jeep style car is the best . If you want excape the world a great place to go . Its about an hour and half from the bussle of Purto Vallarta .

Room Tip: Just ask for a room with a balcony on the top ! You can add blow up beds which is great if u have k...

We were in the Mayto beach area and stayed 4 days at the Hotel Ricconcito and the Hotel Mayto respectivly. These two aformentioned places are neighbours on a very laid back, secluded beach setting.

After a four day stay at the Rinconcitto,of which I was perfectly happy with, my wife wanted a change so we moved over to the more expensive setting of the Mayto hotel. Husbands....we got to keep our wives happy...LOL!!!

The hotel Ricconcito room is a little less comfortable,however, the price and the WONDERFUL family, along with the home cooked meals, more than make up for any room price ($50 or $90) difference.

When we opted for the Hotel Mayto, we were very lucky, as the ocean front room became available for our move in.I never got to see any of the other rooms, so I cannot comment, however, I imagine they must be clean and acceptible, at least 3-3.5 star quality

This ocean front room was located quite nicely and offered a beautiful ocean view from the outside attatched, ground level sun deck. The king bed was comfortable enough and the Mexican style room decor was average to good.

The room came complete with an old style TV and a decent bathroom. The overall room atmosphere was good,however ,not great, but definitly a satisfying change for my wife over the more plain neighbouring Riconcitto. The highlight for me, was defintly the sundeck and the ocean view it afforded us.

The overall hotel property was very clean, with swaying cocunut trees, an ocean view, a nice pool and an ok ocean front, outdoor restaurant.

We didn't have any laptop or Ipad with us to checkout any wifi options, however, the hotel office offered usage of a somewhat slow computer that had apparent off and on again signal problems.

The staff was generally shy and friendly and the lady at the front desk could speak english really well.

The beach out front went on for miles and miles with nary a soul to be seen as the hotel was almost completley empty when we visited.A nearby walk (to the left) past the neighbouring Riconcitto led to the very beautiful "lovers beach" that was set between two rocky cactus hilltops, with a few catuses growing here and there.... very beautiful!!! My wife and I took some plastic sun beds with us and had this very romantic little stretch of beach almost entirely to ourselves day after day 99% of the time. I spent many an hour here in solitude experiencing extreme rest and relaxation.

Spectaculiar waves crash the shore here as the tides and winds change and it made for some great pictures and videos. We say birds flying over head and whales jumping in the distance....awesome!!!

As previously mentioned, there were only two beach fron hotels in this area.

If you'd like to spend some time with a laid back, super nice Mexican family with some killer home cooked meals,free private tours, in a less luxurios room....the stay at the Hotel Riconcitto next store.

If you want to spend almost double the money and have some luxury with a swimming pool, in colder type(but OK) atmosphere, then stay at the Hotel Mayto.

In closing:

Aside from the two aformentioned hotels is the beaty ,serenity and peacefulness of Mayto beach and the surrounding villages in the area.This area is for nature lovers who who love serenity, peace and quiet away from the modern tourist areas. If you are that type of person, you will love this area. If you like modern luxury,action,partying etc, you may become bored very quickly.

In finality:

I would rate this place a 3.5 if that option were available. It was a 3 for me and a 4 for my wife. Got to be fair now!

Room Tip: Get the ocean front room....its the most romantic for sure, offering great views.
