A nice place to return to after a nice day out
Posted Mar 19, 2017
First, I found the women who managed the desk to extremely friendly and helpful, as were the housekeepers. They even helped me with a little Spanish.
While, this is no five-star hotel, it is probably more than 3.5. Although the rooms and building are dated, they were very clean, and it was clear there was an effort to maintain them. One minor complaint would be that it can be noisy, particularly early in the morning and late at night. That could be because apart from hotel rooms, there are apartments and the staircase winds up three flights to the rooftop patio and more apartments through the centre of the building.
What I liked most about this hotel was that it was away from the busy tourist traffic, about five or six blocks from the beach, but in a more local neighbourhood. There appeared to be more ex-pats living in the area than tourists, and it was great to soak up a bit more culture as Puerto Vallarta residents went about their daily affairs.
There are several restaurants, bars, green grocers and corner convenience stores within minutes walking. It is also an easy walk to the Malecon area and several banks, including an HSBC and Scotiabank, and a Starbucks if you do not want to enjoy a local café.
The river is a block over, and a small island in that part of the island contains some interesting Hollywood movie memorials and leads to the road leading either to the beach or the Malecon area.
Overall, I highly recommend this hotel. It is not expensive, excellent value.
