The hotel staff is very attentive and nice. Very small resort, but very nice and clean. Rooms could be updated a bit but overall good. Restaurant has a great view of the beach and great food! Good drinks!

This is not the first time I stay at Playa Los Arcos. The service is excellent like always, location is great (within walking distance to almost everything) & they make you feel safe. The check in process took a little longer this time around but no issues that couldn't be solved.

I have been going to Playa Los Arcos for over ten years at least once per year. The location is right on the beach in old town. The staff is tremendous, always available to assist when needed. It is a very reasonable price for the location and they do offer an all inclusive option. The restaurant and bar areas are...

Los Arcos is the best value for the location. It is on the heart of the Zona Romantica, no need to leave the neighborhood if you don't want to. The beach is right outside the door, best hot tub sunsets of my life, and amazing food close by. Don't miss Pancho's for Tacos and Cafe San Angel.

This is a small "resort". A more accurate description would be to call it a "Boutique hotel" on the beach. The room was clean, but very dated and small. Only 4 outlets in the room. 1 was taken by the tv and one by the refrigerator. The room did not have a refrigerator and we had to order one. Do...

So beautiful, right as I enter there is an amazing view of the swimming pool then ocean behind it. I loved the people and the architecture, absolutely beautiful. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is the food. I had a bowl of seafood soup and right off the beach expected it to be fresh and amazing,...

“Ocean and pool fronting rooms are the greatest”
kaye_in_victoria, 22 Apr 2017 | Read review
“We were looking for a room with two beds and I had emailed the concierge prior to the trip to state that. when we got there there were no such rooms available so we were upgraded for free for one night and then moved the next.(this time I paid for an upgrade). we had to book out of our room, put our bags in storage and wait several hours for another room ..which also didn't have 2 beds ..but a cot for a 2nd bed. Because the staff are so nice and were SO busy I didn't bother complaining ...just not the time to visit the hotel or the city for that matter!! ”
