It's true this hotel has an amazing location and all the local must-sees are within walking distance. But I feel that management was over exaggerating their amenities. We almost didn't book this hotel since there was no pool or oceanfront location to relax and enjoy the sun. But their website indicated (and still does!) that we'd be treated as guests at the Amapa Sunset Beach Club - WRONG! When we did locate the Beach Club at Los Muertos Beach we were treated quite rudely and we tried to tell them we were staying at Hotel Catedral and before we could show them our key card we were told that there is no association between Amapa Beach Club and the hotel. It was quite embarrassing. If you travel from a cold climate to Puerto Vallarta to enjoy the sun & the beach this is not the hotel for you. There are just too many to chose from!
The bathroom was also a disappointment, old fixtures, old tile a leaking toilet and only cold water at the sink.
