They are polite, friendly and always happy to serve you and help...

A nice hotel in the middle of everything in old town. Hotel was clean and well maintained. Staff was very friendly and helpful especially Salvatore and Francis! The poolside bartender Oscar was great. We stayed in a two room suite with a partial ocean view and it was very nice. Has a large pool and spa.

Overall we enjoyed our stay at Playa Los Arcos . The hotel is located in the heart of downtown Puerto Vallarta, the rooms were clean and comfortable and the breakfast buffet was great. The beach gets crowded but good for people watching! We would definitely stay here again.

I agree with John-Mark k. Los Arcos is an amazing place with amazing people, great views, great prices. Why go anywhere else for a holiday in the sun? We've been going for 25 years. But, if you are looking for an American hotel, stay at the high priced places...please. While the hotel brochure says tips included, please tip the wonderful...

Let me tell you there are many other options that all have great locations! This hotel is small and dated.

This hotel is definitely not luxury, but perfectly adequate if you want to be in the heart of Puerto Vallarta, with the best beach, warm pool and whirlpool, ability to walk everywhere, including the malecon, and world class restaurants in the area.

“Ocean and pool fronting rooms are the greatest”

“We were looking for a room with two beds and I had emailed the concierge prior to the trip to state that. when we got there there were no such rooms available so we were upgraded for free for one night and then moved the next.(this time I paid for an upgrade). we had to book out of our room, put our bags in storage and wait several hours for another room ..which also didn't have 2 beds ..but a cot for a 2nd bed. Because the staff are so nice and were SO busy I didn't bother complaining ...just not the time to visit the hotel or the city for that matter!! ”
