Family oriented? Food & staff

At reception area, take the voucher for buffet breakfast. . Is super worth it. Quality of food , variety and friendly staff are great.They don't have changing tables! Anywhere here. Their main tower says. THE FAMILY FRIENDLY HOTEL. This is a MUST. Bonifacio Rojas, the Chief Butler took care of an issue with swimming pools just fair. Kid's pools were really cold and we end up at the "adult pools and their Jacuzzi. At the end he made sure both parties were pleased.

": Can we please stay longer ?"

Playa Los Arcos Hotel is so much fun, relaxing and convenient many guests want to extend their stay -- Hotel Concierge Magda works her magic to accommodate such requests - this family friendly hotel has many return visitors who come back year after year to enjoy Los Muertos Beach plus 3 pools a Holistic Spa 2 restaurants plus nightly traditional high caliber entertainment in the bar area . Old Town is the perfect location for shopping. has many great restaurants and activities for all ages and is very friendly -- Playa Los Arcos Hotel has 3 properties to choose from -- the main Playa Los Arcos Hotel is right on the Beach -- the Dona Susana across the street offers a quieter serene ambiance plus Los Arcos Suites with kitchens tends to draw the longer stay guest . I have just returned from a magical 2 week stay and their level of efficiency and care of their guests has even increased since last year ! One of the new features is the ability to print out your Boarding Pass at Customer Service Desk which saves time arriving at the Airport in turn reducing long line ups and reduced stress !Playa Los Arcos Hotel is also very environmentally conscious being involved in the Turtle Conservation Program plus day to day processes to help our Planet . I believe the most important asset at this Hotel is their staff who daily go above and beyond to satisfy the guest's most seemingly menial request . Being pampered is a way of life at Los Arcos and the guests are constantly amazed by the wonderful attention and care given to each and everyone.

Family Hotel with a Great location in Puerto Vallarta

We stayed in this hotel for our first visit to Puerto Vallarta. The location is A+. The lobby and pool area are very nice. Our favorite thing about the resort was the access to the beach, tied into the restaurant pool and lobby area and the location. The rooms themselves leave a lot to be desired, we had a junior suite, which had a semi separate room with a little kitchen, after seeing another non-suite room that did not have the kitchen or separate area but had a balcony we would choose that room next time, we only used the kitchen to reheat some meals. The rooms are dated, the beds are not that comfortable, but we would definitely stay here again with our kids, really a A GREAT Location, just steps off the start of the Malacon, and plenty of really good restaurants nearby.
