Hotel Suites La Siesta

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The unbelievable views and easy nature of the hotel was perfect for our family and having a great kitchen meant we did not have to eat out every meal although there is fantastic tacos at the bottom of the stairs. Being treated to nightly fireworks show was also great for our girls will stay here every time we come back for sure

This hotel is high up on a hill overlooking the city and the waterfront. Beautiful views. It's a hike waking up the stairs to get there although. A bit dated, but everything worked and the bed was super comfortable. Two complaints, the staff was good and attended to everything, but no one spoke English, funny in a place that has mostly English speaking guests. Also, the nightclubs on the Malecon are very loud at nights and go on until the early hours of the morning. No bad when you close the windows, but you would think that business would be slow after 2 and they would quiet down. There is a very good restaurant at the top floor of the hotel, good meals, a tad expensive but no complaints about the food or service.

Beautiful old Mexican style architecture. The views are spectacular!! Sunsets are fantastic. Personnel very friendly and accommodating. Loved this hotel. We have been going to Vallarta for many years, and Hotel La Siesta is one of the first hotels that was built. We recommend it to visitors who love the romantic Mexican style and culture.

If you just want to look out your "balcony" windows and enjoy the beautiful view (and nightly fireworks), then this hotel is perfect for you. But our second-floor "suite" had lighting that verged on decrepit, a stove that wouldn't light until a man came in and turned up a gas valve and then lite it with matches (from then on the kitchen smelled like gas....for days!), a small double bed that had to be moved away from a wall to get in (but when the bed was moved, the only closet couldn't be opened!), creaky doors and what wasn't really a balcony but was called a balcony! All it really was was sliding glass doors that opened on a window box with one plant in it. The "balcony" was one foot wide! Add to this that the front desk staff spoke very little English, the swimming pool was VERY cold, and the upshot is that I can't really recommend Hotel Suites la Siesta. Yes, the view is lovely, but you still need a few amenities. don't you?

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.
