My parents have been staying at Playa los Aros for 18+ years and I have vacationed with them at PLA 8 of those years so it only seemed fitting to have my wedding at, what feels like, our 2nd home. PLA's Concierge Magda planned our best day ever. She covered every little detail that we wanted for our wedding from...

We stayed in room 1010 on the first floor. The furniture is outdated and the room had a musty smell. However, the lobby areas, the pool, the setting is what gives this place its charm. The staff go out of their way to be helpful. The restaurant facing the beach is great. All of the waiters went out of their...

We stayed for almost a week in room 323, which faces the street on one side. From the other side, which had a balcony, we could see the pools and beach. The room was incredibly disappointing. Fixtures were quite old and the room had a musty smell. We got used to it after a while, but in retrospect, we should...

The room was average. Lobby bathrooms were clean. Pools were clean and maintained every morning. The facility is older, which you can tell but always clean. Bartenders were great as were the rest of the staff who were friendly and welcoming. Have thought about going other places but always come back to Playa Los Arcos.

This is another year(2017) and the Hotel obviously is still in a great location. But the service and friendliness of the employees makes it a 5 star service hotel. No matter where you stay in Puerto Vallarta,all roads for food,museums,music and taverns lead to the Romantic Zone..and right in the middle of the Zone is Hotel Playa Los Arcos. They...

First time here! Loved it! Started with a small room but they moved us to a more comfortable room that met our needs. Magna was wonderful helping with this problem. Great breakfast at Resturant and everyone was so helpful! We're going back next year!!!

Location is excellent, view of the ocean is incredible! Make sure you get a room with a balcony facing the ocean and a fridge in your room. Bed was very comfortable. Pool area is excellent nice warm pool.

Martha, the manager upgraded our room after the first night and we were very pleased with the rest of our stay. We bought the "inclusive" breakfast and really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. There are so many wonderful places to eat in Puerto Vallarta, I'm glad we didn't partake in the "all-inclusive" meal plan, except for breakfast.
