If you have kept up with my travel to PVR you know our brief stay at Hotel Encino was terrible. We had been walking over to Hotel Rio every morning for their wonderful breakfast. I finally went to the front desk and visited with Cali and asked if I could see their rooms. She showed me a luxury queen and...

Balcony was shared but no one else was on it. Partial view of ocean. Walkable distance to lots of restaurants and bars. We would definitely stay here again. Also...

Stayed here for our honeymoon. We had no problems with the hotel and the location was great for exploring the city by foot. We did not need a car and taxis were readily available. I recommend upgrading so that breakfast will be included at the Coexist restaurant, which was incredibly convenient. I took off a star simply because it's not...

I have stayed here many times during the past 6 months; each time I've been tremendously happy with my choice. All the staff make me feel welcomed, safe, well-attended. As a woman traveling alone, this is very important to me. When my family came to visit me, with a bunch of kids, also they were very accommodating. They have kitchenettes,...

This is a great, affordable and comfortable choice, close to the beach, restaurants, etc... Despite being on the main street, it was very quiet, and the service was great. The breakfast was amazing as welL!

Only needed a place for one night, so we weren't in need of the amenities to be found at more upscale places. Hotel Rio Malecon turned out the be the perfect option. A very nice hotel with a lovely pool, poolside bar and restaurant in the courtyard. We have a baby, so it allowed us to put the baby down...
