Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Reviewed 3 January 2007

Stayed here over Xmas 2006. It is a "family" hotel meaning it caters to Mexican families primarily - but of course foreigners. I did notice gay travellers in the hotel - who always recognize a great bargain. Rooms are basic, pillows terrible, beds OK, room size generous by local standards. With the newly completed extension of the Malecon - this...

If you want the holiday inn, then stay there. This is as a great place to stay. It feels like Mexico when you are staying there. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The maid service was superb, and she left the towels in a decoration on the bed everyday. I tipped them 20 pesos everyday which is nothing to a...

Reviewed 2 August 2003

My wife & I have stayed here several times. It is ideally located just off Los Muertos Beach (we have been to PV 12 times and this is our favorite area to stay). The prices are very reasonable. The hotel staff is friendly. The rooms are relatively clean. It's within walking distance of most everything worth seeing/doing in PV. This...

We needed a place to stay and we walked around the area looking for something clean, cute, and for under 60 dollars. Some places charge extra for Air Conditioning, but we got an adorable room with a HUGE bed and A/C for $44 (USD). The hotel across the street was charging $76 and we stayed the night before in this...
