Gay Centerville MX

Although the previous reviews were a little confusing. Here is the Feb 2010 review. Fab rooms (marble floors and bathrooms). Cute kitchnette (could have stayed long term in the Junior Suite). Junior Suite is overhanging the beach with your own balcony. If you wish to meet people, this is "the" cental location in front of the "historical" gay "blue chairs" I cased the area and Abbey Hotel ( 2 minutes away) is another social option but Blue Chairs has got the beach in front of it, bar on the roof with shows, and very good food for the lazy traveler. No place is perfect but if wish for activity and don't mind a little noise from that, great first trip pick. All bars are quick walk away. (Don't stay outside of Romantic Zone of Puerto Vallarta). This is the fun, cute, cobble stone road area that is flaming gay.

Excellent Choice!

The hotel is remodeled and was very nice! The staff is very helpful and accomadating. The hotel is directly on the beach and has a restaurant that will bring you food and drinks all day while you enjoy the sun on the beach. My friends and I had an excellent time and would go back anytime. Highly recommended!!

Manage Your Expectations

Before Booking at Blue Chairs, we read all the reviews on Orbitz and Trip Advisor. To say the least we were very reluctant to book because of the reviews, but we did anyway and I am glad we did! The staff is friendly, room clean, and prices are great. Keep this in mind when you plan you visit to Puerto Vallarta. Each country is different in regard to the hospitality industry. We Americans are spoiled when it comes to our expectations-so when visiting this beautiful city and you are staying at Blue Chairs-manage your expectations. It is a great hotel with plenty of activity and great service. The only two areas that need improvement is the hotel's wifi and the beach vendors, who constantly asking you to buy their goods.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

The Swedes restaurant is a short walk from Blue Chairs . They have a fabulous menu, terrific service, and prices are terrific. Diana Tours. Diana provides a all day boat excursion that provides snorkeling, a great lunch, and fabulous sightseeing.

A fun place, but not fancy

The hotel underwent a renovation a few years ago and it's definitely a comfortable place to stay... but no, it's not fancy so don't expect that. Instead, it's in a great location, there is always something going on, and the staff are incredibly fun and helpful.

Location can't be beat

The gay beach is at your doorstep & the nightlife is a short walk away. You'll never leave the area during your visit! Friendly staff and locals go to great lengths to ensure you have a good time. The rooms are "rustic" and the amenities few, but if you go without thinking it's the Ritz Carlton, you'll have a blast!

Great Location

This was our second trip to PV and knew the layout. Blue Chairs was our first choice because of the location. At our arrival and our departure, other guests were definitely expressing dissatisfaction but we had a good stay. The rooms are decent. Some are smaller than others. Mine had a kitchenette while my friend's was a smaller (average size) hotel room with a balconey. The two rooftop social areas were nice... one includes stripers. The beachfront is decent but too crowded. They're also realistic and have a 3-hour limit on any "guests" you may bring back to your room. Along those lines, they may be nit-picky with the charges: temporary tattoos may rub off on the towels so you have to replace those ($30). I would stay again but I wouldn't raise my mediocre expectations.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

There's a nice, rooftop dining experience at the corner or Pilatas and Amapas. Fajitia Republic was a great atmosphere but not exceptional. Sammy Tucan's is THE place to go for an American-style (unhealthy) breakfast. Check out the pastry shop across the street from it for some delicious snacks.

About as close to perfect as you can get!

Not the Hyatt or upscale-type hotel...just perfect for what we needed...the type places we stay. The room was clean, the bed was very comfortable and the staff...the staff treated you like family. The cost was just right!

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

There are people selling excursions everywhere you turn while in PV. Totally trust Erica, the concierge at Blue Chairs. She'll not steer you in the wrong direction. All our excursions were exceptional thanks to her work! Also...seek out Ricardo in the beach cafe...one of the best servers I've ever had.
