After a week at Sayulita with friends at Thanksgiving, I needed somewhere to stay by myself for two days until I could get a reasonably priced flight back to the US. I also wanted to see something of the town of Puerto Vallarta, and wasn't interested in/couldn't afford a solo stay at one of the big resorts. Hotel Rio Malecon...

Check in was smooth, friendly and courteous. The rooms are nice with comfortable mattresses and pillows. Plenty of hot water and designer shampoos, conditioner etc. The restaurant downstairs had great service and good food. The location was very good. 2-3 blocks to beaches, clubs etc. Plenty of food and shopping in the area. It is however right downtown so if...

The hotel staff was very quick to resolve a couple of issues that arose during my stay. 1) I made my reservations online but when I arrived there was no record. Good thing I printed the confirmation as proof. Because there was no comparable room available, the front desk upgraded me to a nicer room at no extra charge. 2)...

My fiancee and I stayed at Rio for several days after a wedding in early November and we have nothing but positive things to say about our stay. The staff was friendly and even upgraded us to a Queen bed since it was available. The room was clean and in good condition. If you have a chance to eat breakfast...

We stayed there 3 nights and the staff and food (breakfast) were great. The rooms were clean (we stayed in 2 on 2 diff. occasions). The price was very good and the hotel is so close to the beach and the action. It can be a bit noisy so if you're a light sleeper it could be an issue. I...

I really enjoyed my stay at the Rio Malecon. It is a quaint centrally located hotel right next to the Malecon. The service was friendly and efficient. Highly recommended! The air conditioned sports bar served delicious food and great happy hour. The beach is a short walk away with all kinds of eating and drinking choices. The room was excellent...

We were visiting friends in Guayabitos and decided to spend Dias de Los Muertos in PV after reading about it in the Bandaras News. What we needed was a centrally located hotel that was within walking distance to everything. The Rio was certainly that and more! A great experience from the moment we walked in the door. Smiling staff at...

My experience at this hotel was just wonderful! I had stayed here for a week with my daughter and we both loved it. The service was amazing. Once you entered you are warmly greeted.

signed up for a basic room, they upgraded me to a newly remodeled kitchenette. They were upgrading at least a couple of rooms. The A/C will freeze you if you let it.
