The hotel is in a fantastic location, the only hotel that has an infinity pool overlooking the Malecon & with uninterrupted ocean views.

Our first visit to Puerto Vallarta! Front desk was great with getting us a room with a view. They have a great pool, good for kids. easy access to the beach and the pier where you can catch a boat to Yelapa (another great beach). Try to get a room facing pool.

The location is great but what makes this experience special is the Chief Butler Bonifacio Rojas. He seems to be everywhere and manage everything. Nothing is missed under his watch. He made us feel special and appreciated. View from our room was spectacular. Beaches are fantastic and everybody speaks English!

No problem moving around PV from Playa Los Arcos. Walking is easy in any direction and lots to see. The culture of people is here, not at the Marina or Sams Club. The local people are nice everywhere but to get a true sense of life in PV is in the Romantica Zone. The food is always great in most...

This was our third time using the facilities at Playa Los Arcos Hotel. The location is great with a nice sandy beach and plenty of people watching. The vendors are plentiful on this part of the beach but are very considerate with a simple gracias.

The great experience started when I received and email from the Front Desk Manager (prior to us leaving for the trip) asking if there were any special requests or celebration for our stay.
