We needed a bathroom after walking the Malecon, and Starbucks seemed a good choice. Sure enough, there are facilities. Be sure to ask them to unlock the doors for you!! They do NOT have heavy cream available for the coffee, and the coffee just did not have that unique Starbucks flavor. However, there is air conditioning, and plenty of 'people-watching'... More

I don't usually stop in Starbuck's at home but I had an excellent latte here one morning at prices that beat US prices. The staff person was very pleasant and the air conditioning was terrific. Spotless interior. Very nice selection of pastries. Highly recommend.

I love visiting this Starbucks when we go to PV every January. It is about a mile walk from our condo and I walk there early in the morning for a chai latte. It is in a perfect location to sit on the patio and watch people walk by in the town square, watch the waves come up on the... More

Stopped here for a latte after an enjoyable walk along the promenade. The staff spoke English well and even managed to understand my limited Spanish. Coffee was good. It was annoying though to queue for the single dirty toilet in the building next door

If you've seen on Starbucks you have pretty much seen them all. It's interesting to note that the coffee here is better than most local restaurants serving Mexican coffee.

Starbucks is always good and the staff are very good with English, never had a problem. They also have sugar free cookies which is not available in Canada or the US.

If you want to have coffee just like home try out the Starbucks. Nice desserts and good coffee. Free wifi too.

Service was great and quick. Good place to relax outside or inside. Bathrooms not so great (go inside and through door into building next door). It was the only location I knew would have facilities in or near it (free even if no purchase).
