The best rooms are facing the Rio Cuale. Watching the egrets in the mornings and listening to the frogs in the evening are an ever changing scene. The rooms are clean and spartan. The staff is very accommodating. This was my second stay at the Encino.

The rooms are clean , my bed is comfortable, and the personnel are friendly. The location is convenient to the Malecon and a 10 minute walk to also Muertos Beach. There...

It was a first trip to PV and this hotel was recommended to us. It is convenient to sea, the shopping and is right in between old and new PV, a hop, skip and jump to the malecon. Even so we found it quiet for sleep and very clean. It has a lovely indoor courtyard. We chose a second floor...

They have a pool on the roof, clean rooms, lovely interior charm- at a super cost. If you want to experience Puerto Vallarta like a local- stay here. Ask for a corner room high up so you can see the water. Right next door is a huge mexician market which is fun to wander through. I'd go back in a...

I stayed here from Jan 25 to Feb 8, 2013 & loved it. Very Mexican with a very colorful charming ambience. I had a large room on the first floor with a king size bed which I found very comfortable. It had a balcony facing the suites. (I don't usually require a balcony other than to dry stuff sometimes but...

Our trip was from December 19th-December 26th. I knew from the beginning we would be choosing this as our hotel because the previous year we had chosen them. The difference was that in 2011 we chose a Suite since it was a trip with the family. In 2012 we grabbed a regular room. It was AWFUL. Our room was on...

We, four girls, went on a weekend trip to Puerto Vallarta. We booked the Hotel on their homepage . A room for 4 persons with 2 big beds, a bathroom and a little balcony.

Nice location--close to Malecon, beach, restaurants, shopping. Definitely budget, but for the money it is a good bargain. Kids liked the pool on the roof. Staff were helpful if we needed information about anything. Street noise was distracting at night but we enjoyed staying in a place popular with locals and tourists alike.
