Rosita Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

No need for a room key. Move the door knob one eighth of an inch over and push the door in. The breakfast coupon was good between 8am and 10. Coffee, juice, toast, and a small serving of pineapples. That's it. It's good if you're a gringo and enjoys solitude as I did.

The Rosita is an old-fashioned hotel in traditional Mexican style. Nothing fancy at all. The food in the restaurant was quite good. The location at the north end of the Malecon is great although it's a long walk to the other end! If you're looking for an American-style hotel, resort, or all-inclusive, this is NOT it. But when we go to Mexico, we want to feel like we're in Mexico and the Rosita definitely provides that experience.

Great location but not enough chairs by the pool which forced me to leave hotel to find beach clubs with seating space! Room was very clean but doors are very old so it was pretty noisy!

Very clean, beds and pillows superbly comfortable! We ate at the hotel once, but the food was barely warm. A little more drawer space would be nice. Location is the best, we love it!

Location is awesome! It was a bit noisy at night, you can hear every conversation from the hallways.

I love this hotel. Staff is always friendly. Food is very good and reasonably priced. Rooms are clean. Love being on the Ocean. Only downside is the dance club music noise from the Malecon until 2AM.

I wanted a friendly place, on the ocean, and afordable. This was perfect.

The Rosita has been in Puerto Vallarta since 1948. It is right at the start of the Malecon, which is a big attraction in any seaside town/.city, but more so here because of the many bronze sculptures all along the Malecon. The biggest is right besie the Rosita, and there is a free art walk every Tuesday starting at 9:30 at the Millenium statue, by the Rosita. The art walk starts with a talk by the creator/sculptor of how he designed and brought to Vallarta an 11 meter high sculpture. Well worth the time. Our room was one of the least expensive. It was very plain, but we don't care. The beds are comfortable. There is filtered drinking water in 20 liter jugs on each floor, and there are lots of flowers around the place. The pool are is nice. The biggest attraction for us at the Rosita for over 22 years is the Sunday buffet brunch for less than $10 US. The room price included a continental breakfast, but for 29 pesos (About $1.85 US) more, you could have many of the regular menu choices.

The Rosita has changed little since I first stayed there in 1965. The rooms now have air conditioning and Wi-Fi. It is located at one end of the malecon (boardwalk). The nightclubs near by are a bit noisy, but nice to be within walking distance... I upgraded to a room with a balcony and view -- well worth it. The beach just north is a bit rocky, but accessible. The restaurant and bar have good food, reasonable prices (weekend buffet) and some fun entertainment.

This hotel meet my expectations, and definitely I will recommend it to my friends, thank you.

We booked a 2 bed ocean view room, first night stay in only available, 1 bed closet, facing south to malecon. Not happy, after returning from dental work next day around noon, we were very pleased with our move, facing ocean, 2 beds with fridge. everything we had hoped for. Incredibly pleasant 2 week stay, wonderful staff, except bar tender not too pleasant when requesting ice for the room. This attitude was consistent throughout our stay. Loved the location and inexpensive food options, including the hotel's restaurant. Would love to stay again sometime.

This hotel is an oldie with basic but clean accommodations and a very helpful staff. It's charm lies in the Mexican Colonial Architecture and the retention of the Mexican culture. The lack of a room refrigerator was quite inconvenient and a room coffee maker was greatly add to the enjoyment, i.e. sipping coffee while sitting on the balcony taking in the views

The hotel location is great. Right on the Malecon. The beds are too hard for me. We stayed here last year and so this year we brought bed pads with us. This made our stay more comfortable. The rooms are clean, but dated. The staff was friendly and the food was good. A continental breakfast was provided. Ask for your breakfast coupons when you check in. It includes coffee, bread, orange juice and a different fruit daily. For a few pesos, you can upgrade your breakfast. They have a great happy hour. Get a bucket of beer or 2 for 1 drinks. Check the happy hour times when you check in There are two. Turn right when you leave the hotel (toward the ocean) about half way down the sidewalk and you can get a great massage at a great price (get the couples massage). We had 5 or 6 massages. We plan on returning in 2015.

we just stayed on night . we had to bring some family to the airport. close to everything , nice hotel for money. older hotel but stayed on night so it worked out fine.

Staff were nice and hotel was very clean. Beds were really hard but this seems typical If your on a budget this hotel is fine pool is gated off, kind felt close in. I also did a stopover at Eloisa hotel, good location also a tad nicer not on the beach but preferred location as I was traveling solo.

We have stayed in Puerto Vallarta at many different hotels. Walk by Rosita many times look nice so decided to give it a try. Ocean view room & for the price it was perfect. we will be staying here from now on.

The Hotel Rosita is a small, older hotel at the beginning of the Malecon in Puerto Vallarta, The lobby, restaurant and pool area are charming, typical, older Mexican décor. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. I had asked for a room with two beds, oceanview on an upper floor with a refrigerator. I received a corner two room suite with three beds, an almost full size refrig, and a huge balcony overlooking the pool and the bay. The room was basic, but very clean and the bathroom was large compared to the other budget hotels in which I have stayed in PV. A continental breakfast of fruit, toast, orange juice and tea/coffee was included in the room cost. The lunch/dinner food at the hotel was good and reasonably priced. There is a 2 for 1 HH in the late afternoon which is convenient. There is no lockbox in the room, but you can get one at the front desk. I had no problems of any sort while staying at the Rosita and will stay there again soon.

Close to downtown , nice place to party and have a great dinner or just a few beverage on the bars. Ocean view we have a great experience in puerto Vallarta.

Location is excellent, breakfast offer is really good. Rooms very bare and drab....

Nice place to stay. Excellent location, right on beach and start of the malecon. Drinking water jugs on each floor was very much appreciated. Very clean. Very nice staff. Well maintained. Nice pool. Lots of staff working in maintenance and cleaning but could have used a couple more waiters in restaurant and lounge. Bulletin board in lobby would have helped to announce activities. For example, there were tango lessons Sunday nights which we just came across accidentally and we would have taken. There was also rib dinner night which was announced by a paper under the door. If there were other activities scheduled we wouldn't know. Breakfast with coffee which was included in the room was not that tasty, but they did make great pancakes on pancake day which was about once a week. Food in the restaurant was quite good.
