WE have been staying at the Arco Iris for at least 25 years, Yes things have changed, NO MORE DO WE HEAR THE WAVES! Music has taken over. Ear Plugs are a necessity. The Hotel though quaint is still charming and so many of us return, the service is wonderful. The help are our friends and work so hard to...

This hotel was one of the first built in Puerto, so it is not a modern hotel and fits right in the relaxed mood of Puerto. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It has a great swimming pool and the restaurant offers a lovely view of the ocean, plus room service. There are rooms with a balcony overlooking the...

I expect that in the 80s and 90s this was a happening place, but alas things and owners have changed....perhaps too many times. The views are wonderful, the staff remain attentive and the rooms are clean, but the pool is missing tiles, the paint in the rooms is tired and the classic Mexican furniture is scuffed. You can see all...

We stayed comfortably at this formerly charming hotel for 15 years. Loved it! And then a new regime came in and changed everything . . . even the paint. (White is a "young color"?) The hotel is now stark white and looks nothing like these photos. Have not seen the rooms in the last year - they may be white...

We were supposed to stay at the Arco Iris for a whole week and we left after the first night, in which we couldn't sleep because of the loud music of a rock concert held on a place steps away from the hotel. It certainly is well located, but everything is close in Puerto Escondido, so you don't need to...

The location is good since you are right across the street from the ocean and all the bars and nightlife in Puerto Escondido if that is what you are looking for. The rooms are clean but take your own towel. There are hammocks in the pool are facing the ocean which is good. Gets pretty hot at night though in...

I spent a week March 9-15 at the Arco Iris. I was warmly welcomed by Rebecca when I arrived. I had a lovely room up on the top le vel of the resort view... Phenomenal - Stairs up and down not so much. But it gave me my daily exercise. I had a full fridge and a coffee maker in...

I stayed for two weeks at this hotel in a double room, having breakfast and lunch at the open air restaurant upstairs. My room was cleaned every day, I enjoyed the friendly atmosphere in the garden, appreciated the helpful and serviceminded staff, enjoyed the good food of the restaurant with a view to nearby Ziccatela beach. The hotel is right...

We tried several hotels in PE and this was our last. Central location, beautiful garden, nice big pool, ok rooms, so so restaurant. Most of the hotels in PE seem to be stuck in the seventies. They are basic accommodation at reasonable rates. The biggest turn off, totally nothing to do with the hotel, was the fact that we didn't...

“The weather during the early part of the year can be very hot at Puerto Escondido so you may want to ask for an air conditioned room or one higher up where you can get some ocean breezes. All rooms have porches or balconies.”
