Good Times in Puerto Vallarta

Actually trip was in September of 2016. No frills...decent room. Service was very good and accommodating! Awesome location and nice beach area...good night life. If you don't do all inclusive...there are many nearby restaurants within walking distance. Rained a little bit other than that weather was perfect!

Great value and location!

This hotel has one of the best locations you could ask for, in the heart of the city. Everything is walkable. Great restaurants nearby. The things you should take into consideration:1- The all-inclusive. Decent value. We used it for breakfast and lunch. Would have enjoyed beer that's above Tecate quality, but it was cold and disappeared quickly. The breakfast had a decent amount of fresh fruit and checked all the boxes. We didn't really eat the dinner with so many wonderful restaurants in the area.2- The view. Spectacular. There are certainly rooms that have superior views to others. We had a central view of the water with a great balcony to just drink coffee and read from. I could not ask for a better hotel room.3- The complex itself. It's an older property, but don't confuse that for run down. They keep it in good shape. Everything from the tile work to the cleanliness is superb. The pools have plenty of seating and if you ask for a beach lounge chair, they just bring it to you at your desired location.I really enjoyed the trip overall. The staff were hospitable enough, bartenders poured reasonably strong drinks, and the combination of price/value is better than any other hotel we have stayed at in PV. Will definitely be back.

motel 6 type hotel

the ONLY good thing about this hotel was it's location, location, location. food for "all-inclusive" wasn't worth the extra price. no help from the hotel on ANY thing about hotel or area. great views from restaurant.

I fell in love with Playa Los Arcos. Raphael Crossfit (sp) at check in was nothing short of AWESOME! Fast, attentive and knew what he was doing. Who could ask for more?We just returned from our stay and can't wait to go back!Beautiful hotel, pools, and beach. The rooms were very comfortable and clean.

Awesome Vacation!

I just got back from a week long stay at this hotel and I enjoyed every minute of it! I travel to Puerto Vallarta quite often but I usually stay at 5 star all inclusive resorts. I was relectant to book here because I felt that it may not be as clean and comfortable. While it is an older hotel, it was very well maintained and has a nice decor. I found the king sized bed to be very comfortable.All of the staff were super friendly and helpful. Checking in and out was super fast. Gema at the front desk was very sweet and even remembered to give me back a small amount of change that was owed to me after I exchanged money with them. I told her not to worry about it because it was such a small amount, but she had it in an envelope for me when I checked out. The staff here are very honest and hard-working. I never felt unsafe leaving my stuff in the room. The lady who cleaned our room all week was also so sweet! She always smiled at us and told us to have a great day! Ive never encountered such friendly staff before!I am very glad we decided to purchase the all inclusive package at playa los arcos. I liked being able to order half price from the menu, and the buffet was pretty good. I usually hate buffets but I really enjoyed it here as every evening was different. The shows were very entertaining as well.The servers were all so friendly and attentive. I wished I could remember their names! The drinks at the restaurant were decent. I enjoyed the house white wine.The beach at playa los arcos was pretty nice and I never had trouble getting a chair. The pools at all the hotels were clean and well maintained. Overall, I had a lovely time at this resort. I may consider staying at the main hotel playa los arcos next time as it is a bit more updated.
