Nice place plus options

Casa Dona Susana is one of three properties in the heart of the "Zona Romantica", probably the most interesting area of PV. All three had nice pools (all of which you could use) and nice rooms and the staff was willing to move your reservation to the hotel that best suited you. All in all, a nice stay.

Fine place, but make sure you get a deal

Stayed there over Christmas. It's a nice little hotel, with a tree growing right inside the lobby, and a pool on the roof. I had no idea what the prices for hotels in PV were and so paid about sixty US including taxes for a king-size bed, which seemed too much after I took survey on the ground ans saw many other nice places available for forty-five to fifty. Location is great, and you can use the Los Arcos beach access and towel service. Rooms were so-so.

don't eat at resort hotels. There are lots of small eateries that serve awesome food for US$4 per breakfast and $10 per dinner.

Central, friendly hotel with good prices

If you are looking to stay in the old part of town, this hotel is great. It is one block from the beach. You get to use all the facilities of the sister hotel - beach chairs, towels, etc. - but no kids or families and half the price. The rooms are basic but have very good showers and air conditioning. The pool on the top of the hotel is awesome for early morning or late night swims. Everyone here was very friendly and helpful, even remembering our names throughout the week. Two drawbacks would be that if you are looking for luxurious room, this isn't it. Also, the hotel has no balconies like the sister hotels. But if you want a great base for exploring and having fun, this is it.

Good for the price

Casa Dona Susana was cute and cozy. They were doing renovations at the time so there was some noise. The roof top pool was small but really nice and cute. I had a room with a King size bed and it was comfortable. The staff was friendly. They are affilated with a larger hotel just a block away where the pool is larger and overlooking the beach.

More like a Mexican villa than a hotel

If you enjoy experiencing the attitude and culture of a city, then try the Casa Dona Susana. The desk staff is helpful, patient, and nice. The bellman is the best. He recommended a taco stand that hit the spot and he took the time to draw a map. Don't expect carpets and plush couches. There's a large courtyard/atrium that all 4 floors of rooms face. The courtyard is lush with greenery and tables to sit at. The room I stayed in was on the ground floor and had a front sitting room with kitchen, and a bedroom that was big enough for the king sized bed. Small full bath off the bedroom. The decor and furniture is pretty and rustic. You might have heard about a musty smell, and there is a musty smell, but it's not unbearable. When I checked into the room, the bellman checked all the lights and appliances and noticed that the TV was not working. Two other maintenance men came in and tried two more TVs and one more remote before feeling satisfied. I tried to tell them that it was OK and I didn't need the TV, but they worked until they changed it up. It took awhile and I was slightly annoyed because I wanted to go get my beach towel, which you need to get at the sister hotel, the Los Arcos, across the street. When I travel, I don't plan on spending much time in the room, so if this is what you do too, you'll enjoy the Casa Dona Susana for its quiet, private area and how rustic and homey it feels. The air-conditioner blasts like crazy and seems to have only one setting that you can't change or turn off and that's super high freezing. Bring warm pajamas. But the pool on the roof is so lovely and quiet and nice. You can find a chaise lounge that's either in the sun or in the shade. There's a mango tree and the view is amazing. You can also spend time at the Los Arcos pool, and even though it has a jacuzzi, there are many people and children in the pool and laying out by the pool. Think Vegas. There's a cafe right next door that has everything you need, even books to read. I enjoyed a delicious mango smoothy one morning and it hit the spot. The woman who works at the cafe is also very nice and patient. If you're looking for a place to stay that's affordable and feels like you're staying with folks from the city, the Casa Dona Susana is for you. If you're traveling with your children and/or looking for a condo, this is not the place for you and there are plenty of other options in Puerto Vallarta.
