This is not one of the modern luxury hotels of Puerto Vallarta, buts its a really nice older traditional place. There is air conditioning. Great location. Beautiful rooftop pool and views. Nice courtyard. And inexpensive. Just don't expect modern luxury.

My intention of going to PV was exotourism, so we left every morning at 7 am and returned at 7pm. The hotel is clean, it has all the basics. Its cheap, $110 dlls for 3 nights! Nice pool on roof top, with great view to ocean and river. GREAT service at cafeteria and good prices.

I usually stay away from downtown but gave Hotel Encino a try...I was there for 17 days and have a wonderful time. The first few days I was pretty much by myself but as Christmas got Nye, the Hotel became full. My room was on the 2nd floor, facing the River Cuale. It was nice, clean quiet and very safe....

A budget hotel in a very good location. Rooms are clean but old. Small restaurant on roof. No WiFi except in Hotel lobby. Will go again because of the location. Old town, 1 block from beach and Malecon.
