A Perfect Beach Party!

Perfect location if you are looking for beach, fun and making new friends. The staff is very helpful, professional and extremely friendly. Room and public areas are well kept. For the value, you can't ask for more. We stayed for a week at the end of August and had a terrific time in a junior suite with excellent view and service. Only problems (and they were minor ones): the room needs better lighting, a microwave and maybe a little more items in the kitchenette. But really, none of that made any difference. The reception staff (Martin, Boris, Frederick) were fun and welcoming. The waiters at the excellent beach bar and restaurant (Moises, Francisco, Pedro, etc.) and at the fun rooftop bar (David, Alberto, etc.) are excellent. Thanks to Ramona and Carlos too. The whole team does an incredible job.

Entertainment tip: In Hotel

You can walk to the beach straight from your room, have drinks and delicious snacks; sit on a blue beach chair and relax; under a "palapa" (or under the burning sun if you prefer). You don't have to worry about bringing cash with you since you can charge it to your room (our final tab was accurate and the prices good). And your belongings are taken care of while you swim or go for a walk! Perfect!

Great Location and Perfect Staff

This was just a quick getaway three day stay. Took a cab from the airport (less than 20.00) and as soon as we arrived the staff was attentive to every detail. Their beachfront is HUGELY popular during the midday. You can walk to the center of town, fun bars and incredible dining spots.

Go to Takos Panchos (it is next door to the famous "Cafe de Olla"). The tacos are some of the best in the world. Small restaurant with just a few tables...but well worth any wait.

A great vacation.

Blue Chairs was under construction when I visited, so a few of the amenities were missing. There were some minor scratches on one wall of the room, but otherwise things were in good shape. The staff were amazing. They truly went out of their way to make sure I had a good time. The concierge and I were on a first name basis after the first day and she took care of me. Also, when I inadvertently dropped my wallet in the cab on the way to the airport, she coordinated with the cab driver to have it brought back to the hotel and sent to me. Truly outstanding service.

A good hotel

The staff is very helpful and ready to assist with information or directions to local attractions in the area. With the location of the beach right across the street, and a decent place to dine there as well, and also with a club with entertainment nightly on the rooftop, Blue Chairs is very self contained. You really do not need to go anywhere else. I really can't fault the cleanliness too much, as anytime you have a sandy beach on location, there is going to be sand and grit everywhere from the inside of the elevators to the hallways. My only real complaint is that the hotel does not stock bottled water in its vending machines. The big bottles of water in the hallways appear to be purified, but I saw them filled from a spicket on the side of the building, so don't drink the water is sound advice. It would also be nice if the rooms had an iron and microwave, but none were available. The location is great and overall I recommend this hotel, especially for an unseasoned one like myself, traveling alone to Puerto Villarta for the first time!

Great Location

The location to the gay beach is the best in the city. It's getting more and more gay friendly every year. We were there for 10 days, so it got to be a bit much, but very fun.

Great Location

Overall I was happy with my stay. The room was clean and has a rustic charm. There was no TV in the room however. The staff was very friendly. I love the location since I could easily walk anywhere in the Romantic Zone.

Worth Looking Into

Have stayed here before. Our room was a junior suite with an ocean view. It was quite nice. The internet was sporadic, though, so we had to go to the lobby to connect. Beware the roof top bar plays music until after 10 PM, so if you go to bed early, you may not get much rest. However, it's great being right close to the beach (out the front door!)

Amazing Location For The Money

I read all the comments before we booked and was cautiously optimistic - what a surprise - this place was AMAZING. I guess others were expecting the Four Seasons or something for this price. Location is the best you could imagine. Right after we got there, we met some VERY friendly locals from Guadalajara who showed us around the area - there's so much here. The restaurant at Blue Chairs is SO good for the price! Eat breakfast there everyday. For something a little more gourmet, go about 4 properties down and eat at El Dorado (right on the beach.) Food is amazing.

Great place

Don't stay here if you're looking for a Marriott or Westin experience. This is a Mexican hotel and thus things are pretty laid back. The location is perfect, the rooms OK, and the staff is amazing.
