Our Opinion

San Marino is extremely basic, with one buffet restaurant and small pools. The rooms are simple, but beautiful and clean. The staff is lively and upbeat, as are the activities and the music at the pool however the hotel can get full on weekends causing the service to suffer a bit. The beach and pool at this property are so-so but there is an impressive pier just in front of the hotel. The best thing about this hotel is the location. It's located right downtown, just minutes from restaurants, shopping and nightlife. No taxi needed! This hotel is gay-friendly, and offers both all-inclusive and European plan (no meals) packages.

San Marino Hotel

This hotel offers wonderful atmosphere and tradition, and is surrounded by many lovely restaurants, shops, nightclubs & discos.

Locations: On the beach set in downtown Puerto Vallarta, 20 minutes from the airport.

    Worst ever

    We booked this place because of the location , it's close proximity to the restaurants and bars . If you can get past the pigeons flying around the eating areas and off the tables then you'll be... Read Full Review
