I decided to do something different for the holidays and I went to PV by myself. Here's what I thought of Los Arcos - The lobby/pool area is great, it's what I imagined it would be when I checked in. Pool view, fun music, pool bar. - Food is good and it's buffet style so you serve yourself. - I...

Playa Los Arcos is like my home away from home when I go to Puerto Vallarta. I try to go there at least four times a year. The staff is friendly and efficient. The location is convenient, and the facilities are adequate and comfortable.

The hotel was great. The location was perfect and it was beautiful. Not as luxurious as some of the other hotels, but we enjoyed it. Staff was friendly and the restaurant in the hotel was good as well. I would highly recommend this hotel for the price.

Great location for beach and restaurants. Nice balcony and free internet. Beds are fine, bathroom small and dated. Good family pool area and quiet in the evening. Air conditioned as well. Would stay there again

Los Arcos has a great location on the beach and near the new pier, the "warm" and "hot" pools are nice but the whole place is definitely showing it's age. Drop off and parking is crazy around the holidays .

After six years in a row, I keep coming back for the big charm at this smaller hotel. Playa los Arcos is well away from the big resorts, in a great neighborhood, with a wonderful swimming beach, awesome breakfast buffet, beach- and poolside service, and loads of regular guests from Mexico, Canada, and the U.S.
