Still The Best Location and Service

This is another year(2017) and the Hotel obviously is still in a great location. But the service and friendliness of the employees makes it a 5 star service hotel.No matter where you stay in Puerto Vallarta,all roads for food,museums,music and taverns lead to the Romantic Zone..and right in the middle of the Zone is Hotel Playa Los Arcos. They have 3 hotels all within half block or less from each other. Playa Los Arcos is right on the beach..and there are not many hotels you can walk 3 feet from your morning breakfast(Buffet Breakfast) and be on the sand under a nice umbrella with a lounge chair and watch the blue Pacific all day. Casa Susana and Los Arcos Suites are about a block back. But(Casa Susana) is for adults only and with an upstairs outdoor pool on 4th floor...the experience of total relaxation is just what you want and your body needs. On the Beach ask for 'Emilio or Santiago' for chair service,inside the restuarant 'Rogelio' is the one we liked as he was very attentative and never had to ask for coffee refills..he had radar!Really everyone was outstanding and we noticed they tried hard to please..they are really hard workers,and it shows up in satisfying service...we loved it.Hint..Saturday night 'Fiesta Mexicana' is well worth it with show and great Mexican Buffet(all you can eat) fireworks on the beach.We already made plans for next year.

Amazing hotel and Staff

This was my second year visiting Playa Los Arcos and I absolutely love it there! The staff is amazing and very eager to please guests. I also Decided this year I would have my wedding at Playa Los Arcos and Magda did an amazing Job at making sure everything was perfect! She was a life saver and helped release the stress of my wedding. The beach is also beautiful and the wait staff is also amazing. Sergio was amazing about getting us drinks and making sure we always had what we needed. We will be back next year to spend another 2 weeks at this amazing hotel

Wonderful time!

First time here! Loved it! Started with a small room but they moved us to a more comfortable room that met our needs. Magna was wonderful helping with this problem. Great breakfast at Resturant and everyone was so helpful! We're going back next year!!!

Great location, great view!

Location is excellent, view of the ocean is incredible! Make sure you get a room with a balcony facing the ocean and a fridge in your room. Bed was very comfortable. Pool area is excellent nice warm pool.

Great room after first night

Martha, the manager upgraded our room after the first night and we were very pleased with the rest of our stay. We bought the "inclusive" breakfast and really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. There are so many wonderful places to eat in Puerto Vallarta, I'm glad we didn't partake in the "all-inclusive" meal plan, except for breakfast.
