We just returned from a week at the San Marino. We were there from Feb. 1-8, 2008. I was a little reluctant to stay there at first, after reading some of the negative reviews. But we were pleasantly surprised by the quality. Rooms: We booked a junior suite ocean front room right from the beginning, and I'm glad we did....

My husband and I stayed at the San Marino from 12/19 - 12/26 2007. We read many of the reviews and thought we had a good idea of what to expect of the hotel. We understood it was not 5 star but were really turned off by many things during our stay. The room was in serious need of an...

San Marino is the best location in old Puerto Vallarta. It is a 3 star hotel but we truly enjoyed our stay there. We travelled there with another couple Claude and Pascal, and our good friend Gary who surprised us by flying there on a later flight. We arrived on Friday December 7th, 2007 and stayed for a week. We...

My girlfriend and I just got back from a 5-day stay at the San Marino Hotel. We researched the hotels in the downtown district extensively, and concluded that this was the best value.

Staff is friendly but cleanliness was below average. If you want peace and quiet this is not the place for you. All rooms have doors and some have doors and windows facing the inner courtyard where music is blaring loudly all day long on the very powerful sound system. The location is great but we spent as little time as...
