8.5 Great
Pros:Staff and location were amazing. It's one street away from the Malecon, but it's not as busy. The restaurant was great as well. You get amazing food for a decent price and it's not as busy as all of the restaurants on the boardwalk. You can enjoy your meal in peace.
Cons:Beds were tiny.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Being in the heart of the city. Walk to cathedral, bus to Arches for snorkelling, local authentic Emilio Zapata market. Family owned restaurants
Cons:Main city street noise. Get room off Main street
7.1 Good
Pros:The price is obviously a plus. The staff were really nice and the concierge spoke really good English. The air conditioning worked really well. The pool is beautiful however right in the middle of everything so everyone is watching you from the restaurant and the hotel rooms. I also liked the location, it felt right inside of the culture of Puerto Vallarta, it didn't give off that resort vibe at all, if that's what you're looking for.
Cons:The shower we had would always flood the entire bathroom, with only a thin curtain and no ledge to catch the excess water. Also, everything just felt dirty. We found a weird yellowish stain on our sheets and they always felt a little sticky. Oh and by far the worst part was all of the fleas. There were hundreds of fleas in the bed, on the floor. Everywhere. And even though the air conditioning worked, it was so loud it's hard to hear your spouse talk.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:The rooms were clean and has your basic needs. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. We needed to use the phone to confirm a tour and the guy at the front desk called for me. They also stored our bags for us while we went out since check out was at noon and we didn't have to leave until later. The beach was not even a minute walk away. The market was across the street and there were placed to eat all around us. The location was great.
Cons:I wish the wi-fi worked throughout the hotel and not just in our room.
9.3 Excellent
Pros:Excellent staff, excellent location, clean and comfortable room, quiet. Would recommend to anyone that wants a great place at a great price.
Cons:WiFi in the room would cut out a lot.
