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 hotels.com know.. Room 60
We were looking for a place to go for a couple of days where everything is close by and bang this was a great place for the what we were looking for. We wanted a kitchenette and this had a nice one on the third floor for us. The view was a million bucks one of the best that I had seen in a long time, we did get to see whales and that was cool also. The balcony was great to sit at any time and have a great look around. We went to the up to the restaurant and had supper there and over looked even more of the city at night. The meals were good and the waiters were great up there. Shower / tub was a bit different but you got used to it. We were surprised that there was no air conditioning but the place cooled off so much at night that you never needed a window open even. Comfy beds, quiet hotel, friendly staff. Barry was a great guy and deserves two thumbs up. Few complaints, one the place needed a bit of a cleaning in the kitchen area fresh paint things like that. Pool is not heated in any size shape or form one guy from the states swam laps and I do not know how! Hot water to the room, it took awhile for the water to get there and that to me was a waste of water. We would stay there again.
We absolutely loved this place! I will start by saying it’s not a resort, through the years of traveling we prefer not to stay in chain hotels, we are more adventurous and interested in having unique experiences and this is the place to do it! We stayed in a junior suite on the top floor (6th). I would recommend staying on the highest floor possible, and getting a corner room because the views were amazing and it had a wrap-around balcony. Our room was clean and the windows and balcony doors were open as we arrived and our suite was cleaned every day and we returned to our room to our bed made and fresh towels daily that were shaped in swans, and other animals. There's beautiful tile work through the room, real plants in room and on the balcony, and authentic, traditional decor. The staff was excellent and always very helpful, accommodating, friendly and easy to get along with, it did help to know some Spanish though. There’s also a full kitchen in the suite, stocked with pots and pans, cooking tools, silverware, coffee maker, toaster, ice trays… anything you need. If it’s not in your room, just ask for it, they will get it for you. It was a fun adventure to go to the very large local grocery store to get stocked up for our stay. The hotel had its quirks but no deal breakers. You had to run the hot water for like 10 minutes before it would reach your room, and the elevators were sketchy, and sometimes not in service at all. The location is the best for the views but with the incredible views comes the 200+ stairs up to the hotel, or the old cobblestone streets in a rickety cab, I actually enjoyed both but if you have an upper respiratory problem or bad heart it might be a problem for you. I enjoyed windows but it's worth mentioning for some people, the windows are old school shutter style ones so they don’t actually close which was nice because the ocean breeze felt so good and kept our room cool, even with temps in the 90's. The downside to the windows was that it was really bright in the morning and at night you can hear EVERYTHING, the people dining in the rooftop restaurant (which can be very interesting at times lol) and every cat/dog/raccoon fight in the street, garbage truck, party from the Malecon etc... That was an easy fix; you can find ear plugs at any pharmacy! We also brought a sleeping masks for the plane, so between those, the earplugs, and either the tequila or exhaustion from the adventures of the day, slept very well from the second night of our stay on. I guess the beds are old as hell too, so not very comfortable, but again not a deal breaker for us. That’s why I’m only giving it an average rating for sleep. The restaurant at the top of the hotel is called El Panorama. The food and service were amazing, salads, guacamole, desserts prepared at the table. We went up there randomly throughout our stay to eat or just to cocktail. Often we were led to a romantic dim lit corner table for dinner. They even let us order drinks and take them to our room (with the condition we take the glasses back up the next day) and the manager allowed us to sit on the roof top restaurant when it was closed and have drinks. Very romantic. The pool is great, and we were often the only people down there which was really nice, we would just bring down a few beers and limes from our room and relax, my boyfriend was also able to enjoy a few cigars down there. We were really sad to leave this place and look forward to going back many times!
