Great time in Vallarta - skip Playa Los Arcos

If you only need a place to rest your head then Playa Los Arcos is the place for you. Don't expect luxury or even average amenities for that matter. The place is dated and if you have a mold allergy then I highly caution you from staying here. Pros: Location, semi clean rooms Cons: Food, staff isn't the friendliest, dated rooms, mold smell in rooms (yes we were in two rooms. We booked a room with two doubles and the hotel overbooked. So we got a king the first two nights.)

Spring Break

Hotel staff was great- location was a tad far from airport but otherwise wonderful- walking to shops and restaurants, not that you need them if you do all inclusive. Lots of people on the beach interrupting you to sell items, but it's just part of the experience!

Another fine time at PLA

I love this little hotel. Right on the beach, wonderful views, fantastic staff, decent food, located close to most everything in town and reasonably priced. Don't go expecting an American/Canadian chain. It is a fun, interesting, cultural experience that I have enjoyed twice a year for several years now.

We have stayed at playa los arcos many times and it has always been great, the staff is very helpful and has addresses any concerns or needs quickly. It is right down town so you can walk to everything. Best hotel and best value I have found there.
