Take your earplugs

Restaurant staff seems annoyed with customers. Maid service and reception were very nice. Rooms on the inside facing the pool may be much quieter. Good location if you like to be right in the thick of it.

Cons: Better beds or I am out. Back was sore and not good when you are running hard.
The beds are terrible and there needs to be more pillows...besides that, its a great central location with easy access to the best beaches, shopping, partying in old and new Vallarta.

Great location in the centre of town.

Posted Apr 14, 2015
Cons: The only downside would be the noise from the street below. But this is PV, & it did quiet down between midnight & 8:00AM.
Location: Malecon, town square, 60pesos cab to Primera Plus bus station, shaded park all along river, easy bus service to Walmart & with 1 transfer to Bucerius.
Clean room, bed/pillows were fine, helpful staff, and a great location close to everything (eg. only one block off the malecon). Our 1st breakfast wasn't the best, but we gave it another chance & enjoyed a very good guacamole with happy hour one afternoon & a nice dinner on our last night.

Hotel cerca del malecon

Posted Apr 9, 2015
El trato que tiene su personal al cliente es terrible... llegamos tarde al check in y aun no tenían la habitación limpia, tardaron hora y media en entregarla, el personal de recepción no te recibe de buena manera, las dos veces que limpiaron la habitación dejaron el piso empapado, tuvimos que secar con una toalla, y al finalizar nuestra estancia les hicimos un reclamo por el tiempo que se tardaron en entregarnos la habitación y nos dijeron que solo podían cuidar nuestras maletas. Solo regresaría por la cercanía del hotel al malecon

Nice place

Posted Apr 8, 2015
Pros: NIce location, clean, good air conditioning. Restaurant and nice pool
Location: the hotel is one block from the Malecon. Lots of good restaurants, bars. shopping, the market. Great location
We only stayed one night as we were flying out the next day. The room was quiet and really clean. It was a really nice little place in downtown Puerto Vallarta. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Good air conditioning.

Rio Malecon

Posted Apr 4, 2015
Pros: The cleanliness and restaurant.
Cons: Better customer service and better care when people make reservations. If people reserve a room they should get that room they requested!
Location: This hotel is right on the boardwalk which was great. The plaza is around the corner and there are serval restaurants bars and clubs.
The hotel seemed nice online and it was ok at first impression. However when we checked in they gave us a room with one double bed when we had made the reservations for 2 double beds. When we questioned this they said it wasn't their fault they were given the restrictions to accommodate 2 people and that our room easily accommodate 2 of us. We decided to complain a second time and possibly speak to a manager and we were told they couldn't o anything sine they were full and we had to wait until the following day. They did give us a room with two beds the next day but the initial experience definitely made out trip start off on a wrong foot. The hotel is very clean and the restaurant was awesome.
