My husband and I stayed here for a mini vacation. The view from our room was great. The toilet seat lid was annoying cause there's a shelf above it so you couldn't open it all the way. The all inclusive was ok. You can only eat their food so many times and you get tired of it. The spa was...

Very loud open air night club across the street till 3 am. Take ear plugs or ask for a room close to the beach and in the north wing (west end). Employees are very nice and the restaurant has a OK menu if you skip the bacon with your breakfast. Many great restaurants all within walking distance.

Great Place. Nice rooms, right on the beach in the old section of Puerto Vallarta. All the people that work there are very kind and very warm. The hotel is very traditional. Room had a balcony overlooking the pool and then onto the ocean. The hotel itself was very accommodating to any request that we had.

The hotel is great for location i.e. walking, sight seeing, restaurants, entertainment and the beach. We have been coming here for several years and enjoy the hotel amenities and comfortable rooms. The staff is very friendly and helpful, especially Martha at the front desk.

We purchased a deluxe room but instead got a standard with two beds. My fiancée was fine with that so we didn't make too much of a fuss. We were in the center of the city which was awesome because we could walk to everything no need for taxis or bus. Every morning at about 7 or 8 there would...

Terrific location in old town, friendly staff. Beautiful pool(s) right on the beach, great restaurants in the area, handicraft markets and good shopping for every price range, excellent little coffee bars for breakfast within a couple of blocks, spectacular artwork on Malecon Boardwalk along the beach to town center 20 mins away, breathtaking scenery. Definitely book Junior Suite or above...

Location is great. Staff are friendly. Food is decent. However, I paid extra for an oceanfront room and got a room that I could not be in until 10:30 at night. It was the most expensive torture that I have endured. Room 142 is apparently directly above a very large noisy vent in the kitchen. The noise was like sitting...

Our 3rd time staying at this hotel, we love it, the location is the best, right near malecon and lots of restaurants and bars, staff is super, and they have the same staff since we've been coming, over 10 years, some been working 20-30 years here (Jesus the doorman)! They remember us every time which makes us feel welcomed. Restaurant...

I let my husband make our one week PV vacation plans, so that was my error. Yes the hotel is one of the oldest on the beach, but it is dire need of a remodel. Room was dark - not enough light. A lamp lightbulb needed replacing and they promptly replaced when I brought to their attention. Location is good...
