We stayed comfortably at this formerly charming hotel for 15 years. Loved it! And then a new regime came in and changed everything . . . even the paint. (White is a "young color"?) The hotel is now stark white and looks nothing like these photos. Have not seen the rooms in the last year - they may be white... More

We were supposed to stay at the Arco Iris for a whole week and we left after the first night, in which we couldn't sleep because of the loud music of a rock concert held on a place steps away from the hotel. It certainly is well located, but everything is close in Puerto Escondido, so you don't need to... More

The location is good since you are right across the street from the ocean and all the bars and nightlife in Puerto Escondido if that is what you are looking for. The rooms are clean but take your own towel. There are hammocks in the pool are facing the ocean which is good. Gets pretty hot at night though in... More

I stayed for two weeks at this hotel in a double room, having breakfast and lunch at the open air restaurant upstairs. My room was cleaned every day, I enjoyed the friendly atmosphere in the garden, appreciated the helpful and serviceminded staff, enjoyed the good food of the restaurant with a view to nearby Ziccatela beach.

We tried several hotels in PE and this was our last. Central location, beautiful garden, nice big pool, ok rooms, so so restaurant. Most of the hotels in PE seem to be stuck in the seventies. They are basic accommodation at reasonable rates. The biggest turn off, totally nothing to do with the hotel, was the fact that we didn't... More

Puerto Escondido has blossomed in recent years and there are many new hotels at every price range. Hotel Arcoiris is an older hotel with parking, pool, restaurant, wi-fi,and landscaped grounds. It is across from the longest beach (Zicatela) which has many beachfront restaurants. However, there is almost always a dangerous undertow at Zicatela. We went to the beach nearer to... More

“The weather during the early part of the year can be very hot at Puerto Escondido so you may want to ask for an air conditioned room or one higher up where you can get some ocean breezes. All rooms have porches or balconies.”
