Great value, great decor, great stay.

Great location! Great renovation. Hotel is walking distance to just about everything, local buses pass nearby to take you anywhere in puerto vallarta for just a few pesos or you can take a taxi, l recommend taking the local bus, even if you end up on the wrong bus, it will be a fun adventure!! Hotel is kept clean and tidy, modern decor, nice restuarant within hotel. Room was surprisingly somewhat quiet, the double pane windows helped reduce noise. Room was recently nicely modernized. Cons: The shower although a great idea leaked alot of water outside the shower door, shower is part of the room, so privacy maybe an issue. Toilet area nicely tucks away with a sliding door, but is not every sound proof so toilet noise privacy can be an issue for some. NO PARKING PROVIDED!! The good news is we found street parking around the corner, however; there is a big parking structure kitty corner to the hotel. Pool although very inviting it is small and if kids are playing in it, it can be a challenge to use or lounge around it.

Nicely remodelled hotel, right downtown.

Posted Dec 26, 2016
Pros: Location, condition, staff, virtually everything.
Cons: Can't think of anything.
Location: Right downtown, one block from Malecon, main square and Starbucks three short blocks. Everything in Centro and Romantic zones is walkable.
Pleasantly surprised by newly remodelled room at the Rio. Very clean, comfortable and modern room with double glazed slider for noise reduction. Great friendly staff, front desk staff very helpful and spoke good English. Good restaurant onsite, and small pool to cool off. Everything is walkable from here, it's reasonably priced, and I would definitely stay here again.

Very good experience from the comfort and helpfulness of staff.Only drawback especially to a person who is a lite sleep is the traffic noise since being a block to malecon traffic starts early and last late into the note.

We wanted a reasonably priced, safe, clean hotel next to the malecón. This was all we needed, would stay there again.
