My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. It is in a great location and you can walk everywhere. Hotel has a great restaurant with really good food (especially the chilaquiles).The Rooms are clean, nothing fancy but comfortable. We really recommend this hotel. The staff is very friendly and honest. We'll definitely stay here again!!

My friend and I had a great short stay here. The rooms were very clean and the staff were friendly. One gentlemen at the front desk went out of his way to assist us in finding a cab which we really appreciated. The food at the restaurant was very good and the drinks were even better! Very cheap happy hour...

If you are not a needy person this is absolutely the perfect location. Service was spot on, we were one block form the Malecon and within walking distance of everything. would much rather be here than an all inclusive resort. Staff was extremely attentive and responded to requests immediately. I left some things behind in the room and they kept...

We weren't exactly expecting a 5 start hotel but basic hygiene was expected. What we got were rooms that looked very different from the pictures with stained sheets and towels, bathrooms that lacked exhaust, shower drains that were clogged. The only upside was the proximity of the hotel to all the great places to eat and shop in puerto Vallarta.
