To be clear we would go back to this hotel. Here is our story. I had emailed ahead to make certain we had an ocean view, balcony, and dinner on the beach. Had a few responses but it did not materialize. It was my wife birthday and our 35 wedding anniversary so I wanted it to be special. When we...

Sergio, Estevan and Palmira are incredible. They cover the entire beach day in and day out and do they ever hustle! They never forget an order and are always polite and fun. They deserve top honours for a job well done! Our suggestion is to develop some way to share the snack menu with patrons on the beach.. Flyers would...

We picked Playa Los Arcos because of its location and we were not disappointed. There are dozens of great restaurants within a short walk. It is also just a couple of blocks away from the Malecon and markets. Our room and the common areas are well kept and clean. The decor is old. The furniture in the room is old....

Food was very Mexican but you could always find something to eat. Breakfasts were the best. Very difficult to get beach service for drinks & we were all inclusive. Sergio was busy chatting up a young woman & when I asked if there was a reason he was not serving us, he told me management wanted him to get sales...

We have stayed at this hotel for two years in a row. No complaints. Our first room did not meet our expectations so later in the evening on the day of check in we went to the front desk and nicely explained our concerns. They couldn't do anything that night but the next day they changed us into a much...

We enjoyed our stay at Los Arcos. We tried the all inclusive this time and probably would not dot it next time as the buffet is just ok and the drinks are limited.There are so many amazing reasterants near by and you can get cheap beer at the oxxo. The rooms are nice and clean and most of the staff...

You can't beat the location, right on the strip and on ocean front. It's near tons of food options and restaurant within hotel was very good too. Everyone who worked there was very helpful in giving recommendations, directions, and just overall nice people. A great place to stay for a romantic getaway.

The room was just average, but the location was great. The pool and grounds and restaurants were good, the beach chairs were comfy. The hotel in general and the grounds are quite attractive. And you feel like you're really in Mexico. It was easy to walk everywhere and take in all the sites.
