I do not usually write these but this time I had to. We went on this trip after a lengthy wait of 7 years expecting what it said an authentic mexican hotel. Well it can be but we were sorely dissappointed. All the ratings did say clean friendly good value but we found the total opposite. This motel is not...

How sad..... the hotel is deteriorating.... bathroom was dirty... television was broken, phones were broken, service was terrible and the restaurant next door "El Set" is noisy and disrespectful to guests at the hotel..... With all of the hotels to choose from in PV.... steer clear of Playa Conchas Chinas!

We have stayed at older Mexican hotels in the Zona Romantica, but this hotel has them all beat. They put us in the penthouse suite which was nothing short of breathtaking. Nothing but the sound of the ocean to put you to sleep. No elevator and 136 steps from the beach to the top, but it was great exercise. The...

I carefully selected this hotel for our first stay in Puerto Vallarta, and is was perfect. I prefer a smaller town to visit, but this location gave us easy access to the city of PV, only an inexpensive 10 minute bus ride away. The Conchas Chinas area is beautiful and quiet, without the hustle of Puerto Vallarta. The La Playita...

My husband and I stayed here between Christmas and New Year's. The first room we checked into would have been just fine for us--a studio with a kitchenette, balcony with view of the ocean and the sound of waves filling the room, and a jacuzzi on the balcony. All this for $140 a night. Then we caught wind that they...

My husband and I just returned from a week in Puerto Vallarta with a 3 night stay at Playa Conchas Chinas. The first 4 nights we stayed at an all inclusive, but we wanted to mix it up at bit and Playa Conchas Chinas was the perfect choice for us. The hotel is a bit run down, but our room...

We stayed here several times before finding a perfect cove about 100 yards north. Follow the service road at the bottom of the hill and Wow there's the beach. I have to admit I only found it because we went to a wedding that was on the beach and we recognized that we were at El Set and went exploring....

Perfect spot for our first few nights in PV. Secluded enough to feel private, yet close enough to town to walk or taxi in. Two restaurants on site.....a great beach bar and a nice restaurant upstairs. Awesome view from the room and balcony.......sunset, whales, etc. We were upgraded at no additional cost due to a minor snafu with our reservations....

We recently stayed at Conchas Chinas. While admittedly our room was relatively cheap, we personally would have been happier paying more to stay at a better place. Our biggest complaint was the room. While it seemed like the sheets, pillowcases, towels, etc. had been washed... they all were stained with what looked like grease, blood, and who knows what else...
