Service at the restaurant was very good, Betullio really went above and beyond to see that all our needs were met. He made Mexican coffee that was delicious. The shows were entertaining. My...

For our second night we chose this area to be in the Romantic Zone. The location was perfect, we were able to walk to dinner and everywhere in the action. The rooms are less than extraordinary, but did the job. If you plan to be out and about, this is a great choice.

The hotel Staff was very friendly. The rooms were run down, and slightly dirty. The Air Conditioning was awesome. I would recommend eating elsewhere. The food was below average and over priced. The beach front location is a great plus. For the price, its a great place to stay.

The rooms where small but clean . This hotel is close to everything so no need to rent a car. If you are looking for something with good wifi this is not the place for you. I would have no problem staying here again.

We go back to this Hotel every October and it's always a real buzz. It has some rough edges, of course as most every hotel has but overall it and the area in which it sits is our favourite holiday destination. We always book the same suite yearly in advance and it is always available on arrival so we never...

The only reason to stay at this hotel is for its location near down town and the boardwalk. The beach is not prestine but it is safe for the little ones.Once in the hotel it is crowded with kids especially in the summer. The pool was always overcrowded and there were styrofoam cups littered everywhere by the pool. The buffet...

From Laguna Beach, Ca. Have visited Vallarta many times before - first time at Los Arcos.
