My second time staying here and I love it. Gay friendly. Located in zona romantica a five minute walk to the gay beach. Secure high-rise efficiency condos with breathtaking sunset view from my balcony. Nice pool and deck on property. Cleaning service for room every other day is great too. There's a little market down the road to buy provisions...

Torre Malibu is a high rise of 45 or so independently-owned condos rented out by the day or week. As rooms go in Puerto Vallarta they are a pretty good deal- if only for LOCATION. At the edge of PV's very walkable "Romantic Zone", staying here put me at the doorstep of what I think PV does best; cute cobblestone...

My partner and I were in PV for Valentine/Presidents Day weekend and we stayed at the Boana Torre Malibu. We didn't plan our trip until the last minute so there were only two options left for us to choose from. We stayed at room 001. Suzanne at the front desk/phone was very nice to us from the beginning. The place...

I find it hard to reconcile the negative reviews with my experience at Torre Malibu. Incredible views, extraordinary pool and wonderful staff. Suzanne was always a pleasure to talk with and a great help. The condo I stayed in was large and comfortable with a deck overlooking the pool and all the amenities one could need. Plenty of hot water,...

I have to say I have been coming to Torre Malibu for the best few years and never experienced the "bad" service that others have complained about. I will say however this year I moved to the top floor #901 and it was awful. The only thing that it had going for it was the amazing view. The roof beams...

I travel quite a bit and have been to Puerto Vallarta 5 times in the last 5 years (amongst many other cities). I have to say that this was one of my most frustrating stays ever. I didn't mind the many steps to get up to the main loby; I just considered that part of my daily excercize. But the...

I rented room 801 for 12/26-1/2/2014 nine months ago and paid in full. I canceled the reservation five months ago and the refund is contingent upon renting the room. By recently having friends send room availability inquiry emails, I found they have not been listing #801 as available for those dates. I contacted them regarding this practice and they claimed...

I have been in Puerto Vallarta 9 times, the last 3 at Torre Malibu. The value is amazing. Never again will I stay in a run down PV hotel in the old district. For only approximately $20 more per night you get your own condo, overlooking the ocean complete with 2 bathrooms, a full kitchen, cable TV and Wi-Fi included....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Boana Torre Malibu is the largest gay condo-hotel in Puerto Vallarta. The hotel is also open to heterosexuals. Torre Malibu is near the famous Playa Los Muertos, a gay beach known worldwide for its famous ``blue chairs`` and green chairs. A great selection of restaurants and a lively nightlife await you just a few steps from the hotel. At Boana Torre Malibu, we offer a wide selection of rooms, which are condos actually! You will have the feeling of staying in a true suite rather than in a simple hotel room. ... more   less
