We stayed at this hotel/condo for the second time this past November. We were once again very pleased with both the service and the accommodations. The pool is immaculate and is meticulously maintained. There is great security and the hotel staff, including John Paul at the front desk are always very accommodating and welcoming. We stayed in room 703 and...

Very quiet neighborhood. Clean. Friendly staff. Helpful staff. Close to the beach. Excellent little market a block a way. Pharmacy. Easy to catch a cab too. I've stayed here many times. But have to admit that when I first started staying there rooms were 46 USD a night. Now they are over 100 per night. So, I'm not able to...

We felt the service has gone downhill. The front desk team were friendly enough, but it smelled of smoke and they were not overly accommodating. Bring pesos, because everything has a price: beach towels need deposit and rental feel as do the keys (no rental fee). The overall appearance of the hotel is run down and the rooms could use...

I stayed in PV for 5 nights. The first two nights were in el Centro at Boana Torre Malibu. I would definitely recommend staying here. It's close to all fun things to do in town. Blue chairs is just down the stairs. The staff is very friendly and accommodating.

I have stayed at Boana Torre Malibu several times and have been relatively satisfied. The staff is responsive and friendly, and the pool is great - no kids! - and you often have it to yourself. It's all openly gay with a pleasant and neighborly vibe. It does feel like family. The public areas are kept clean and secure. The...

My partner And I stayed at the Boana Torre Malibu the last week in March. Everything was perfect! We had an amazing ocean view room and could even hear the waves crashing when the patio door sliders were completely open (which they were for every day of our vacation). The apartment had all of the necessary items we needed, including...

I visit this condo hotel every year - love the location, love the staff, love the regulars. It truly is my Mexican home away from home. There are units for every budget and taste. Services are provided in English, French & Spanish, and we found costs overall similar to an all inclusive but with tons more freedom! One block from...

Most Condos have 2 bathrooms, well stocked Kitchens and Fantastic Views of the ocean . That being said it is only one Block from the Ocean and Blue/Green Chairs.

Stayed here for our Honeymoon. We booked 705, and although this was on the high end of the cost scale it was worth it! The view was amazing! The 2 bedroom fully renovated condo was just what we were looking for. The pool was also fantastic. While there was construction on the property next door, it typically was only from...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Boana Torre Malibu is the largest gay condo-hotel in Puerto Vallarta. The hotel is also open to heterosexuals. Torre Malibu is near the famous Playa Los Muertos, a gay beach known worldwide for its famous ``blue chairs`` and green chairs. A great selection of restaurants and a lively nightlife await you just a few steps from the hotel. At Boana Torre Malibu, we offer a wide selection of rooms, which are condos actually! You will have the feeling of staying in a true suite rather than in a simple hotel room. ... more   less
