Great location

The drawing card is the location---practically on the beach. With the patio door open you can hear the sound of the ocean waves and feel the breeze blowing gently. The rooms are not luxurious but comfortable. It takes a while for the water to heat up in the shower but once it gets hot its ok. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurant(s) is tasty. Overall, a decent value. I would visit again

Fun time, great people, good location

From the moment we arrived the staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. We made many friends with the staff while we were there. The location is great. The only issue was the room. While I do understand they were in the process of trying to upgrade, there is still a long way to go. And just one other thing that rubbed me the wrong way was that they wanted to charge you for the cheap coffee and sugar that you find next to the mini-drip coffee maker in your room. Come on guys! From what I know now, I could have gotten a lot more for the same price at nice places in the same area.

Close to the beach and nice staff

Overall, it was a great stay. Our room was ready at check-in. Our room was recently remodeled and had nice marble floors. It also had a private balcony with bay views. We spent most days at the beach, a short walk from the Hotel. In the evenings, we walked to dinner in the old town. This was very similar to another vacation we spent in Puerto Vallarta in 2009.

pros and cons

pros: across the street from the gay beach (chairs & umbrellas are free to anyone making purchases from the beachclub cafe though); gay and/or gay friendly staff; short walk to most things gay - though many hotels are closer to all but the beach. clean room, bottled water in the hall, beachclub cafe and rooftop bar charges could be signed to room, free beach towel service, atm in lobby, flat screen tv, nice bed/bedding, free wireless in room. [...], the concierge is EXCELLENT! cons: literally a jackhammer on the roof many days during my visit with dangerous debris falling onto terrace and hotel entrance. paid extra for a beachfront room and got a view of the tarped over roof of the bar across the street with a few inches of ocean above it. elevator in/out of service all week. very low water pressure. a guest and i were VERY embarassed and surprised to be forced to sign-in, leave ID and pay 200 pesos 'security' process for visitors to rooms - though the general public had easy access to all floors en route to and from the rooftop bar 3p-10:30p daily. some other gay and non-gay hotels had a sign-in process but not the fee.

Great location

The hotel is been remodel so is quite noisy starting really early in the morning so if you go for a night out be ready to wake-up really early bc you will not be able to sleep with all that noise.

Unbeatable Location

We spent a great deal of time walking the area and the staff at the hotel were so helpful in key places and restaurants to visit. We really enjoyed our stay. Not to mention the beach is at your front door with lunch and drinks on the beach.

Everything was within walking distance and if you needed a cab the hotel was more than willing to help. I recommend asking the staff where they like to eat and places they visit.

Perfectly Passable

Blue Chairs is a great party hotel. It's at the epicenter of gay PVR and accomplishes what it means to very well. The rooms, albeit small, are clean and the maid does a good job. There is no in room safe (it's in the lobby) and hot water takes awhile to get going. Honestly though, if you're a young, gay guy looking for a fun time and you are looking for cheap accomodation this is a good spot. The one real downside is that happy hour is on the rooftop between 5 and 8 or so and it's loud, hard to get rest before you go out at night. There are much nicer accomodations in the area, but if you want to literally walk out of the hotel and be right on the gay beach, stay here.

In-expensive get-away

The hotel staff seemed friendly and helpful. Just not crazy about the town of Puerta Vallarta. Nice rooms, a little on the 'cold' (decorating wise) side. The CONSTANT annoying people that come up to you on the beach really detracts from the otherwise enjoyable beach experience. The hotel is truly right on the beach. I think I would have rather have stayed in a nicer hotel and just walked to the beach though. There are a lot of nicer destinations I would rather go to. I certainlly would not return to Puerta Vallarta.

Christmas in Puerto Vallarta

The location is a little out of the way of old town, but still a good location. we stayed in a suite, and the room was nice enough. the shower lacked water pressure(think a drizzly day in seattle) the balcony was amazing, the only other problem was the suite was located directly under the club, so the moving of the chairs and setting up of the club can get a little loud when your trying to nap for a night out....

"constructions"

there were banging noises early in the morning..no consideration for the guests and if you're on the top floors the music can be too loud at night
