san marino 02/26/2014

Its in an awesome location. A lot of action going around. The sunset and sunrise are priceless. Lots of hot spots around the hotel. nice cofee shops and restaraunts. With that said it is in the tourist part of town so the prices will be a little bit high. Recommendation for breakfast,lunch or dinner near by is TIZOCS. There is a spa in the hotel pretty good prices and services. If you get all inclusive with your hotel price the food and the drinks are decent. BUT the ROOMS.. OMG. Not too clean. way to small. and the mattress are horrible. no towels. no extra blankets. I just didnt have a good night rest :( . But you cant beat the LOCATION. FYI: If you are going to buy ANYTHING in PUERTO VALLARTA do not take the first PRICE. You can negotiate almost anything. KID FRIENDLY have fun. maggie

"Enjoyed the stay"

We stayed for 8 days in the ocean front junior suite,the hotel staff are very friendly and responded quickly to any requests. Our room was clean, beds are nothing like home but tolerable. Breakfasts were very good and the other meals needed some adjusting but we were satisfied overall. I was under the impression they had organized kids activities but that did not happen. My five year old loved the shallow pool since she could be a little more independent.

Great location for the price

We chose this hotel so that we would be close to the pier at Playa De Los Muertos where we were to catch the water taxi to Yelapa after our overnight stay in Puerto Vallarta. The location was perfect. The pier was literally right next door and the hotel was right on the beach. The kids loved the pool and loved the beach. We were very happy with this hotel and it was a great deal for the price. I really liked the neighborhood as well. There were many great restaurants within walking distance. We could dine at either high end restaurants or cheap and cheerful taco shops. We chose the later with the kids and had a great meal at a great price and the waiter was great with the kids. I just wish that I could remember the name of the place.

Great option for your budget...

I stayed last week at san marino, and i recognize that it was better than expected, first of all the price was a deal. Location is great: walking distance from the boardwalk and downtown. The food and drinks are good, and all the staff is very nice and always give you a smile. I deffinetly will return to san marino next year!
