Great beach and central location. Wonderful staff. Room was average. Next time I would upgrade to a better room. Restaurants and bars could use some ambience. I was traveling alone and found this hotel to be a great base for exploring puerto Vallarta

We had nothing but trouble at this place. They didn't have our reservation, then they found it under another name, which they never corrected in our 6 nights there. We have to pay almost 50% more for our "extra" guest . We ended up staying elsewhere the last night. Toilet broke, door handle broke, guests can't enter the hotel, even...

This hotel was perfect in that it was resort-like but right near the shops and restaurants of the Malecon. The staff was all wonderful and the beach wasn't too crowded, even at Christmas. Choose your room wisely; the upper levels get no wifi and a LOT of street noise. The rooms surrounding the pool actually seem to be quieter. Also,...

A very good time at Playa Los Arcos in the Romance Zone of Puerto Vallarta just south of the Malecon and Old Town. If you are looking for a slice of authentic Mexicana, you will find it here. The beach is good, and service is friendly and welcoming. The resort is small with a small beachfront, but is quite charming...

Very nice hotel. Small Mexican-style rooms with excellent, comfortable beds with very crisp, clean linens. Staff was very helpful and let us leave our bags there for the day after check-out. Great beach chairs and swimming spot right by Los Muertos pier. It was quite busy which isn't our style, but we could happily enjoy this hotel for a couple...

My parents discovered this place years ago. My Mom and I have been coming here for 5 years now. It's family oriented, the staff are outstanding, and it's steps away from the beach!! Everything is within walking distance and the area is authentic and traditional. They have fun activities with Adrian almost every day, and the spa is awesome.

I stayed 12 nights. On arrival they had me in the worst room in the hotel. I imagine it was because I had booked through Travelocity at a discounted rate.

Was so pleasantly surprised to find Los Arcos even better than I remembered it from 3 years earlier. My room was larger, with an ocean view, and everyone was friendly and helpful. It's the perfect location for total immersion into the Romantic Zone of old PV.
