Great location

If you want to be right on the beach and are willing to give up luxury as part of your stay then this is the place to be. The staff is amazingly helpful and always go above and beyond.

A Good time in PV

the hotel is dated and a little old but good for the value. the staff is friendly and very welcoming. it is located in a great spot. I will surely return to the Blue Chairs! it is not for those who want the comfort of a 5 star but if you want to ruff it a bit and just enjoy it is worth the money. you are paying for ambiance and location.

stay away from the touristy places and just check to see where the locals eat. be ready to do without A/C at most places so stick to places that you can eat & move on.

Great location and beach Ok place to stay

We were initially placed in an ocean front room with an obstructed view due to an unfinished and old construction site. We were moved to a room with a spectacular view the next day at our request. Be aware that the hotel is in a constant state of construction. The staff does their best to accommodate the inconvenience but it appears this will be a reality for the for seeable future. The bar on the roof and the pool are outdated and need some TLC. The location is perfect to walk across the street to the beach and to walk to bars and restaurants.

Below Average Gay Hotel

The staff is nice enough. The location is good but there is construction in front of the hotel that does and will further interfere with the views as it progresses. I had two different rooms due to maintenance problems in the first and even the second room. Multiple requests for attention to issues in the second room were not responded to. It is my understanding from some local residents that the hotel owners are not gay friendly and do not invest any money to maintain the hotel standards. Based on my experience, it appears to true. The only thing the hotel had going for it is the location on the gay beach. I would not recommend the restaurant.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

All travel by taxi in the romantic zone is 40 pasco min. Cabs will often try to overcharge.

LGBT vacation

The staff at the hotel was very nice. There were many problems - 1) Only one key for 2 of us and it took 4 days for us to get a second copy that worked. 2) Argument over room selection occurred- we had an email from reservations that we could have 2 double beds but upon arrival there was an argument about giving us a single King size bed. 3) Original room was musty. 4) The room we stayed in looked like the door had been busted in with 4 door jams needed to keep shut. Proximity to the beach was great. The happy hour on the 6th floor fantastic. The place looks like its undergoing major expansion so the problems may be temporary

Location, location nothing special otherwise

The hotel is in a great location, nothing to write home about, construction begins next door around 8am and banging all day. Andre the bar manager upstairs was beyond amazing. He gave us the best service in PV all while managing his staff and the entertainment. Give that man a raise. This was our third time but probably our last for Blue Chairs. Condos seem to be a better value and are really close to the beach.

Poorly maintained hotel on a great beach

Hotel is rundown and dirty. The interior and exterior has been neglected. The basic amenities were missing or broken. The view is great. The beach area is great with good service from the beach bar staff.

Needs Some Major Improvements

This was my third stay at Blue Chairs, and I really, really wanted to rave about it. Unfortunately, there are some significant improvements that need to happen to bring this property back up to the level it once enjoyed. Aside from the non-working elevator, the lack of water pressure in the shower, the scarcity of hot water at certain times of the day, and the need to keep a toilet plunger close at hand, the hotel is currently experiencing a lot of noise from a major construction project going on directly next door. The rooms are rather cramped and Spartan in their decor, and it is very easy to hear the goings on in adjacent rooms. Based on the dated quality of the amenities, I have to admit that this property is overpriced. You can't beat its location and proximity to the gay beach in Vallarta, but there is some much needed upkeep that seems to have been overlooked in years past that will make it harder and harder for this hotel to continue to draw discerning gay travelers as newer, more modern properties pop up in the area. This was my second visit within 2 years' time during which the elevator was out of service for most or all of my stay, and my second experience with the poor plumbing as well. On the bright side, the staff are very friendly and exceedingly helpful. The food is good, if a bit pricey. Unfortunately, I fear that this year's visit will have been my last. There are just too many better options with higher quality amenities and comparable pricing to continue my love affair with the Blue Chairs.

Don't limit yourself to the handful of restaurants in the immediate vicinity of the hotel. There are some great places to eat just a few blocks away from the beach in town.
