We stayed in this hotel for just one night before our 2 week vacation in Yelapa. This is a perfect location for access to the Malecon, beach, shops and great restaurants. There is an OXXO convenience store downstairs (to purchase water, snacks and beer), and a nice little Mexican craft market across the street. There are also some great bakeries...

This hotel is located in a great spot. It's on the beach, it's just steps away from the pier, and it's surrounded by plenty of shops and restaurants. The buffet food is good, but the menu items are even better. The staffed worked very hard all day, everyday to keep us satisfied. The best part was the day we got...

The location is great being in the heart of old downtown. This hotel has a beach and the staff try to maintain it and are helpful with the lounge chairs and umbrellas. Los Arcos was lucky during our stay since a heavy rain storm did not erode away the beach as it did at other hotels. We ate at the...

My life is too hectic, sp my vacation to Los Arcos was just what I needed. I could sit on the beach and read, walk around PV markets and old town and do as little as possible. A really great vacation!

I recently booked a massage and facial with Patricia at the spa here - around 85 USD for a massage and facial (50 minutes each). I greatly enjoyed both! Patricia was wonderful and the experience was totally relaxing, and at a great price too. Highly recommend!

“Ocean and pool fronting rooms are the greatest”

“We were looking for a room with two beds and I had emailed the concierge prior to the trip to state that. when we got there there were no such rooms available so we were upgraded for free for one night and then moved the next.(this time I paid for an upgrade). we had to book out of our room, put our bags in storage and wait several hours for another room ..which also didn't have 2 beds ..but a cot for a 2nd bed. Because the staff are so nice and were SO busy I didn't bother complaining ...just not the time to visit the hotel or the city for that matter!! ”
