Recent guest reviews

I actually loved the property but they put me in a room filled with very visible black mold all over the bathroom and in the actual bedroom. I didn't realize until that night when I couldn't breathe . I stayed the night and kept the windows open and slept with my mask on. They moved me the next morning. I was sick throughout my entire stay with bronchitis because of it. I stayed an extra day but instead of allowing me to stay in the new room I had been in for a few days they made me move to a lower class room for my last night. Due to the inconvenience I think they should have let me stay in that room. I had to go to urgent care and get a z pack and prednizone and a new inhaler since I had to use mine so much there.

Close to town, easy access to restaurants and bars, friendly staff

Friendly staff, helpful front desk and cleaning crew. The pool is just for show, can be noisy at night with traffic. Great central location. Great return on investment!

Very close to everything downtown. Discount on food if staying at hotel and food was great. Very helpful staff

Liked the location. Easy walk to everything. Check in was difficult. There was a miscommunication regarding my booking that was handled poorly. I think the clerk just reflects his management's attitude. The general manager aggressively confronted me, thinking i wasn't a guest. Was still rude after confirming i was. Strange way to handle a 60 year old business person. She has anger issues

Service

The front desk is not helpful at all. I love the location but every time I’ve stayed there it just makes harder for me to go back.

This hotel has the best location. You are right next to everything that’s amazing about Puerto Vallarta. Great room’s, friendly staff, and the restaurant has amazing food, drinks and service. I totally recommend.

Very close the everything and restaurant is great.

The location of the staff the food and everything about this place is wonderful And everybody is so nice and it has a wonderful warm homey feeling to it I dropped my wallet and the next morning the front desk looked me up and a housekeeper had found it and it was returned to me not something you see in this day and age I highly recommend it to my friend and I will definitely be back

Central to everything very clean would go back again

Alejandro (the concierge) was terrific. He helped my boyfriend and I with our many questions. Our stay was extremely comfortable and we highly recommend this place!

Amazing location, clean room, great service. I’m looking forward to returning.

I booked a room with a king size bed yet i got a full size bed that was too small for 2 people and the room was very small. They should tell u when booking that they are out of kingside beds that way you are not surprised and you can find a different hotel. Very disappointing.

Location is perfect. Great staff. Shopping and dinning are all near by.

Great Service. Very clean rooms. Very safe location! Very honest staff

Great location, quiet, clean. Will be back Food and service was great
