The hotel is a wonderful old hotel with very friendly staff. They speak very little english - but with the help of your cab driver - things happen. We went for the storms - so the view is spectacular of the bay from any room. Yes - its a older hotel (no a/c) but we went for the taste of the real city - not from a all inclusive pestering hotel. The el panorama restaurant on the top floor is a real dinning experience. The hotel is "up the hill" - so we suggest walking down to the malicon - shop - eat - drink have fun - but when its time to come back - get a cab for 50 pesos you are back at the hotel. Get awya from those large hotels and stay in a nice mom & pop place that will give you the best service.

Warm and friendly staff. Very clean older Mexican style hotel with the best view in town. Steep hill we walked down easily and just took taxis back. Spanish speaking only but communicated easily with phone translator. Very comfortable firm bed and nicely furnished kitchen. Great restaurants within walking distance and Panorama Restaurant romantic with good food.

This is not a fancy hotel but I really enjoyed my stay here. It does the basics and the views are beautiful. Be advised that this hotel is located on a hill so if you are not fit or have some health issues you might not like walking up and down the area. However all the tourist attractions are within walking distance including many restaurants and shops. The staff is friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.

After reading reviews, we decided the climb to this hotel would be good exercise and taxis are inexpensive. We stepped into the room and were surprised to find a double bed shoved against the wall, not the King bed we had booked. Asked at the front desk for a room with a King or even a queen but our Spanish was not adequate. Went back to the room, covered the sofa with a towel (very old and clearly not shampooed) and decided to go online to learn what we needed to tell the front desk lady to get the larger bed we had paid for. No internet connection. Something smelled very bad in the kitchen area. Purchased cleaning supplies and cleaned everything I could but could not get rid of the bad smell. Husband suspects a dead animal behind the fridge. Very noisy but that's to be expected downtown. Pool was cool and refreshing but perhaps the staff could give the chairs a once over every morning as they were often covered in bird droppings.

I would have given it 5 stars but for the noise from the night club below on the Malecon . Mandala,, it runs from 6 in the evening until 6 in the morning pumping out nothing but noise and lots of it !! It is not even music , just a bunch of loud noise . we eventually placed the cushions from the sofa against the window to try and dampen the sound . We also had ear plugs in every night. The night club should be moved North or South for the party animals or place noise restrictions and operating times on it . Soo sad ,,, everything else was very good !!!.

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Suites la Siesta in 2010. Where to start? We were definitely taken by surprise by the number of stairs. We went down and back up at least twice a day. It really didn't seem so bad near the end of our stay. The hotel. The only reason I gave it two stars was because of the exceptional view. There are no words to describe just how incredible the view was. We could sit out all night watching the lights from the cruise ships leave the bay. But, the LOUD music from down the hill floated up and it was all we heard all night long. If it's not your style of music (mostly club music) then it can spoil a very nice evening. The suite wasn't all that bad but it wasn't great either. Very spacious. Very spacious patio. It was like a small apartment. But the bed felt like we were sleeping on concrete. Our backs were so sore for the entire vacation. The bathroom was definitely dated. I've never seen a "bathtub" quite like the one in our room. It was an oval shaped hole with little blue tiles all over it. Definitely not the bathtub for anyone with mobility challenges. While the window in the bathroom was small, there was no window covering which made being in the bathroom rather uncomfortable. The pool. COLD AS ICE!!! The heat was not turned on. There was apparently some kind of issue. The pool deck was rather small. No character. So uninviting. The elevator. Would not even use it. The last thing that really bugged me was because our flight was not leaving until much later in the evening we asked if we could have late check out. We wanted to stay until 3:00 pm. They said ok but it cost us $50.00!!! That really upset because it wasn't like people were lining up to get a room. We will definitely not stay at this property again. There are so many other properties that are much nicer and far better value for your money.

We stayed here back in 7/2010. The view was out of this world and I'm sure it has not changed. To get to the beach you have to walks 1,000 stairs! The first night we were dying! Later our bodies seemed to have gotten used to it. Location is close to everything specially Malecon. Back in that time there was no A/C! For get honeymoon it was way too hot lol! I wouldn't stay there again just because of that. But place was clean.

I really loved staying at this hotel. Its more of an apartment as it has a kitchen and lounge area, as well as a separate bathroom which was all very spacious, clean and comfortable. The people that work there are awesome and were so friendly and welcoming. They even let me check in early without any issues as I was about 3 hours early. There is a pool and the rooms are cleaned daily. The decor is really beautiful and I felt like I was living in a foreign country which was awesome - Im not big on fancy resort chains so this was perfect for me and it was quiet and I had an amazing view of the entire puerto vallarta coast line from my room. The price I paid for all of this was so low too and I will definitely stay here again when I go back to PV! The Panorama restaurant on the top floor is great too so definitely check that out and ask for a sexy coffee!! haha

Stayed here at this totally basic but clean hotel from Dec. 26 to Jan. 1st. Pros: - clean (no bugs, critters); good daily clean up - friendly staff (only one English speaking staff) - phenomenal view: outstanding view of the entire Bay - plenty of free drinking water from large plastic bottle - relatively good value - a $5.00 USD cab ride to the "Romantic Zone" Cons: - elevator did not work (good luck climbing) - no in-room safe (at mercy of "office hours", so if you missed arriving between 9:30 a.m. - 5 p.m., you don't have anywhere to secure your valuables) - no in-room internet access (like elevator, has not been working for some time) - MAJOR confusion around how to make international calls (no real clear policy...varies depending on who is at the front desk) - hot water shower tap is on right side (no indication of this posted, so you're left with cold showers until you complain or figure it out) - the advertised restaurant is only a dinner venue (very expensive) on 9th floor and there is nothing throughout the day in the way of breakfast or lunch - location at the top of a steep hill with uneven road - outdated, unattractive, uncomfortable furnishings Call to confirm what is posted on their hotel site and information advertised, especially if having access to an elevator and in-room internet and safety box are important to you.

We recently stayed at this hotel and I must say what a disappointment. They certainly mis-advertise how great it is.. The place was gross. First to be on the 6th floor and no elevator should have been my first clue. Then the broken windows in our room (to keep the bugs out) was a joke. Half of the light bulbs in the room didn't work and the party of sand fleas in the bathroom was sickening. The bed was hard as a rock and bedspread was not fresh. The ceiling fan was loud and squeaked all night long. This was the clincher.... The loud music of night clubs echoing up the hill till 4am was just a reminder of bad customer service. It was impossible to block it at all since some of the windows were missing.. It was by far the most disgusting night of our life. We had booked it for 4 nights and left the next day.. You can rest assure I will be letting know.. Room 60
