Good Hotel for the Price

Posted Feb 11, 2016
For $20 US per night, you cant beat this place. The plusses...good service, accommodating desk staff, clean rooms, safe deposit box at the front desk, and the price is right. The minuses...the hotel is about a 10 block walk off of Playa Los Muertos which may seem far to some. Also, the occasional bus and car on the cobblestones turns into a decent amount of traffic at rush hour. I found room 44 to be a little on the loud side at these times. They have interior rooms that are cheaper and less noisy if this is an issue. I live in a very quiet part of Seattle so this took some adjustment! The ceiling fan cooled things off well but I also brought a travel fan and was glad I did during the hottest parts of the day. Here are a couple of other notes...if you walk back here at night, walk down Madero from the beach. The other parallel streets are a little sketchy late but Madero has several bars and restaurants open til the wee hours with more people around. I got followed my a scary dude one night on one of the other streets. A 50 peso cab ride can be cheap insurance. My basin in my room didn't have hot water but the adjacent shower did. No biggee but shaving was interesting. They only provided one bath towel and no beach towels, washcloths, or kleenex. Bring your own or beg for more? I did manage to get one more bath towel. There's an Oxxo 2 blocks to the south along Jaccarnda for 7-11 like things. Overall, I enjoyed the spirit of this place, Good luck!

Very nice and helpful staff, great location.

Posted Jan 22, 2016
The hotel staff was very nice, the room was clean however it was a little noisy at night (buses and cars and the occasional karaoke signer) but this is standard pretty much anywhere in Puerto Vallarta. The location was great, only a few blocks from the beach, Malecon, taco stands, and two blocks away from a local fruit and vegetable market. We had a small balcony which was great to have breakfast on. We definitely recommend this place to other travelers.

ACCEPTABLE LOCATION.CLOSE TO RESTAURANTS.

Posted Nov 26, 2015
IT TOOK THE STAFF TWO PLUS DAYS TO ADJUST THE AIRCONDITIONER TO AN ACCEPTABLE COMFORT.I PAID TEN DOLLARS EXTRA PER DAY AND THOUGHT AN ADJUSTMENT FOR THE AIRCONDITIONER WOULD HAVE BEEN FAIR.

Traditional hotel in central location.

Posted Oct 1, 2015
Pros: -friendly and helpful staff -very good location, close to downtown attractions -traditional feel, not a cookie cutter hotel -plenty of hot water
Cons: -room showed its age -shower (and the rest of the bathroom) are small -steps could be difficult to navigate with luggage for some
Location: -great rooftop area for relaxing -many wonderful near by places to eat/shop -Rio Cuale Museum on the island in the river -Malecon five blocks away
I stayed at the Tradicional Villa Del Mar for five nights at the end of September 2015, and enjoyed it very much. This is not a hotel that I would recommend to someone who is fussy or looking for luxury. What it is is a hotel that actually feels like you are in Mexico. It is clean, in an excellent location for exploring PV, and a great fit for someone who is on a budget. The reports of it being noisy are true. The street that it is located on is fairly busy. This didn't bother me, but some people might be far more sensitive to it than I was. I would recommend this hotel to those on a budget who want to immerse themselves in the culture of the area.

not recommended

Posted May 30, 2015
Location: Is located in the romantic zone, near center and the malecon.
I didn't expect that kind of hotel. Small room with no A/C, only a ceiling fan. No hot water.
