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.


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.

Great for the cost!

In the range of less expensive all-inclusive this is a wonderful option. The staff, like most of the properties we have stayed at in PV, are very eager to make your stay enjoyable. The location as many others commented on is 10+, literally off the scale. You cannot find a better choice right at the entrance to the city pier and in the center of wonderful restaurants and night scene. This is not a high end property but in it's class very good.The food was much better than anticipated especially after reading some other reviews. Every night the entrees included, fish, beef, pork, chicken, etc... so no excuse on selection. A high five because it was not prepared the same or as best we can tell not even a weekly rotation (we were there for ten days).The room could use some upgrading however, the shower was fine. House cleaning did a good job and yes the beds were firm, a plus for us.I would recommend this establishment to anyone looking for center PV especially all-inclusive.Alcohol was Tecate Light or Indio beer. Hard alcohol was mostly Oso which is a major lower end distiller but for the occasion fine with us.If you want to spend $300. plus a night go else where but in it's price range a great job!

Good Budget Hotel in a Great Location

This hotel offers a great location and friendly service for budget conscience travellers. We were pleasantly surprised after having read some negative reviews. The rooms were clean and the staff were always friendly and helpful. The food was okay. There was always a wide variety though quite similar from day to day. However, we would agree with other travellers that the beds were extremely uncomfortable and that the rooms could use updating. All said and done, it was an enjoyable trip.

You can't find a friendlier hotel that is clean and so close to everything in the RZ.The food is really bad though. Really bad.Still you are surrounded by great restaurants plus this hotel is extremely safe and secure.

Fabulous Stay in Old Town!

I recently stayed at San Marino. It was my first time even though I've been travelling to PV for 23 years. It was perfect for me! On the beach, in old town, clean, friendly staff and adult only areas. They were efficient at check-in, helpful with my bags to the room and any time I had a question or needed help, they were always more than willing. My room was spotless; my maid was amazing. The food was typical resort food on a buffet but it was good. My only criticism would be the bar service seemed slow (i.e. one bartender and a long line up of people). Sometimes it was hard to find a seat in either restaurant as they were full. I just came back an hour later or so and it was fine. Overall, I was definitely pleased and will come back to San Marino. For the price, the cleanliness and the amazing people who work there, it is a new favourite spot for me in Old Town. Thank you staff for a great stay!!
