Food was very Mexican but you could always find something to eat. Breakfasts were the best. Very difficult to get beach service for drinks & we were all inclusive. Sergio was busy chatting up a young woman & when I asked if there was a reason he was not serving us, he told me management wanted him to get sales...

We have stayed at this hotel for two years in a row. No complaints. Our first room did not meet our expectations so later in the evening on the day of check in we went to the front desk and nicely explained our concerns. They couldn't do anything that night but the next day they changed us into a much...

We enjoyed our stay at Los Arcos. We tried the all inclusive this time and probably would not dot it next time as the buffet is just ok and the drinks are limited.There are so many amazing reasterants near by and you can get cheap beer at the oxxo. The rooms are nice and clean and most of the staff...

You can't beat the location, right on the strip and on ocean front. It's near tons of food options and restaurant within hotel was very good too. Everyone who worked there was very helpful in giving recommendations, directions, and just overall nice people. A great place to stay for a romantic getaway.

The room was just average, but the location was great. The pool and grounds and restaurants were good, the beach chairs were comfy. The hotel in general and the grounds are quite attractive. And you feel like you're really in Mexico. It was easy to walk everywhere and take in all the sites.

This hotel was very convenient as it was right on the Malecon and near the pier where you get a water taxi. The staff was very nice and helpful. The pool was lots of fun! However the rooms are extremely dated and feel a little dingy. The shower curtains were pretty gross. Just a little updating would go a long...

Highly recommend Los Arcos. Beach and pools were clean and fun. Walking distance to fantastic restaurants and downtown markets on Malecon. Staff is outstanding and friendly. Plenty of towels in room and available beach towels. Excellent room cleaning. Hotel is reserved and peaceful. No rowdy crowds or guests.

There was a bit of confusion with room assignment on check in but the staff did a great job of sorting things out. This is a great little hotel with personality and in a perfect location in the middle of everything downtown. Buffet is good and the staff are wonderful. Highly recommend Play Los Arcos!
