tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • John C : Willis, Michigan
Great location and super staff.

We have been coming here for the last 8 years and book a year ahead of time. I don’t know of any other location where you can stay on a beach front in a comfortable hotel and step outside and front entrance to find a dynamic bustling scenario filled with many diverse restaurants and shops all within walking distance. The hotel is clean and the staff is friendly and super accommodating. The lounge is awesome (Francis is a great wait person and a lot of fun!) and features music to dance to M-Sa every evening. Happy hour 1-3 and 6-8 every day. If the accommodations were a little more spacious I would give it 5 stars. Love this hotel!

  • Manuel V :
Great location and super Mexican

Hotel is nice and very well located. Food is OK and service friendly enough. Beach is few steps from hotel and main city attractions at a walking distance too. We highly recommend the spa very professional people there. Set backs are that lager beer rans out around 7 pm and deserts could be better. Also jacuzzi was cold our last night.

  • Jacob S :
Homophobic hotel

This place is branded as “family friendly” as an excuse to discriminate against gay couples. For a town that has so many other gay inclusive options, I would never stay here again. To begin, this is not the first review on trip advisor to call this out. Run a quick search for “homophobia” and you’ll see - this is clearly a pattern of behavior.I came home from the bar one night with my boyfriend and a security guard stopped us to make sure both of us were guests of the hotel. I asked why I was stopped, can I not be a guest of the person staying here? You can be sure this wouldn’t have happened to a straight couple. Avoid this place at all costs, and support an inclusive hotel instead.

Went to playa to check out accommodations for a friend and get info on rates . It was a Saturday evening, not busy. The young man at the desk was so rude, like he didn’t want to be bothered. Not the correct way to treat a possible new customer. He lost our referral

Playa los Arcos

This is a Mexican hotel not a big fancy resort that could be anywhere. Just a wonderful place the emp,oyees work very hard and many have been there for many years. Emilio in charge of the beach works hard to make guests happy. Esteban and Paloma servers on the beach run all day and do it efficiently. Rooms are clean and if you have a problem they will try to fix it.
