Puerto Vallarta entices with rooftop pool and Mexican colonial rooms
Casa Dona Susana - Adults Only stirs romantic thoughts with its seaside setting and charming Mexican colonial architecture and decor. Folk art fills the rooms and live musicians create a festive dining atmosphere at Mi Pueblito, which boasts a gorgeous seaside terrace. Guests wade in the rooftop pool, indulge in the panoramic city views from the terrace solarium or book a spa treatment. The sister property Playa Los Arcos Beach Resort & Spa also invites guests to participate in planned activities from water sports to dance lessons.

  • Boutique beachside property with Mexican Colonial appeal
  • Access to activities at sister property Playa Los Arcos Beach Resort & Spa
  • Rooftop pool and sundeck
  • Two restaurants, including one with a seaside terrace
  • Terrace solarium with panoramic city views
Rooms
Hand-carved headboards and authentic Mexican art lend an old-world feel to rooms and suites at Casa Dona Susana - Adults Only. Artful touches include stenciled designs on two-toned gold and white walls, scroll lamps and cherub-themed art. Purple- and pink-striped curtains open to reveal sliding glass doors that lead out to furnished balconies. Standard amenities include cable TV, mini-bars, refrigerators, air conditioning and bathrooms with showers.
Features
Casa Dona Susana - Adults Only's rooftop pool offers bird's-eye views of the bay and ample room for sunbathing. Guests in need of pampering turn to the on-site spa, a holistic haven for facials, massages, body treatments, and hand and nail treatments.

We love this place

This is the third year we have stayed here. Casa Dona is not a 5 star hotel, it is small, clean and in the heart of the best part of PV. The pool on the top floor is our favorite place to be and the hotel staff are very friendly.

Location is the only thing going for it

This is my first time staying at this hotel and will never stay again. I was in a room on the first floor, which is like staying in a cave. The room was small, dirty and very dark! The window faces the courtyard, which is dark and noisy. The room felt very wet and had a horrible smell. It is best to go elsewhere.

Great place in urban setting.

About a block and 1/2 to the beach. Many restaurants and shops nearby. Some of the street and beach vendors can be quite a bit pesky.

Mellowed out

Room was small, but nice and clean. Staff was very nice and helpful. The rooftop pool was a nice change of pace from the beach hyperactivity. Great for the price.

A Gem For PV First-timer

Really great staff all-around, happy, friendly.... about as engaging as you can get with non-native language guests. Greeted everyday with lots of bigs smiles and "olas" from everyone - always willing to help despite the language barrier. Surprised us with different "towel art" animals thro't our stay. Lovely rooftop pool with views to the ocean (and onto both lovely and not so lovely nearby buildings). Interior room was small but ample with plenty of hot water and a quite comfortable king-size bed with authentic mexican furniture and paintings, etc. We were surprised to find that this room was very quiet despite it's relative close proximity to the downtown nightlife. Access to sister properties was a plus with hottub and pools as well as full time English-speaking concierge. In the heart of the Romantica Zone, we were a block and a half walk to the beach and close to a myriad of fine restaurants, cafes, good coffee, bakery and nice XOOX many of which happily took credit cards. Being near the elementary school and square was a nice plus especially access to the daily zumba classes there for mostly 50-70 something types. City buses providing super cheap (and often fascinating) transportation to the north and south of the city and environs were only a few blocks away.

Take the local blue? bus to Walmart and transfer (just 100' further down the street) to the ATM blue? bus to Bucerias - 45 minute trip back to what PV looked and felt like 30-40 years ago. Lots of places to eat and a great beach....

average

when you look at the room as a place to sleep, you can get past the small, quaint rooms and even smaller, quainter bathrooms. It was clean and was kept pretty clean. An adults only building made it a very quiet building, although you don't want anything on the west side unless you want to hear dishes clattering from the staff kitchen next door... Convenient to everything downtown so will stay again.

Great European size hotel

Our first room, over the entrance, would probably be too small for larger travelers--i.e.., Canadians and Americans. Ironically, the balcony was easily 80% the size of the room. It faced the street, and, unfortunately, the noise from the bars around the corner was unbearable. We moved to a room in the back facing the courtyard and it was perfect. The staff was genuinely attentive, the rooftop swimming pool small, but lovely. The art and rustic furniture were a nice touch.

Doña Rosa, Freddy's Toucan, and Café de Olla, all on Basilio Badillo, are good unpretentious restaurants. For real charcoal grilled chicken, the chain Pollo Feliz is always a great value.

Very relaxing vacation

We stayed here for a quick week getaway by ourselves. It was nice since there weren't any kids running around so it was very peaceful. The best part is being able to have access to their other 2 properties and for the loungers & umbrellas on the beach. Otherwise you have to buy drinks/food at other establishments and it can get pricey. The staff at all 3 locations are the best!
