Suites Plaza Del Rio
Ranked #95 of 123 Hotels in Puerto Vallarta
Reviewed 13 June 2017

The rooms are old and they show their age but they are huge, some with wrap around balconies. My suite had a bedroom, two bathrooms, and a living room/kitchen area. Maid service every day brought fresh towels and linens. You have to provide your own dish soap/dish towels for the kitchen. They provide cups, bowls, plates, utensils, frying pans, and pots. You check in at the Encino. There are 3 dipping pools on the roof. Excellent, central location right next to the river and a block from the Malecon. There was no AC in my suite but the fans were very powerful. Most days I had wifi in my room but it did cut out for a couple days. The staff at the Encino are very friendly and helpful.

Okay, okay, okay. I know, I gave this property a 5 star rating. I have a different standard. I rate hotels I stay by affordability vs. location vs. rooms. I have other criteria for judging a property, but in this case the Suites Plaza del RIo met all my expectations.

The Suites Plaza is a sister property to the EL Encino Hotel. The room was older but clean, just like the Encino. The suite had two bedrooms and two bathrooms. It also had a living room and a kitchen with a fridge It was a little apartment type room. I could see myself living in a space like this very comfortably

The Suites Plaza, like the Encino, is centrally located in the heart of the malecon. Everything was within walking distance. At least within walking distance of what I like to do in and around Vallarta.

The hotel isn't a resort style property. It doesn't have the ameneties a resort has. Think of it as place you can stash your things while you are out and about. The price for my 5 night stay was a total of $370! They always have deals on all the travel sites.

The place is family friendly. Meaning,there's a lot kids running around making noise. Not to worry, you are not gonna be spending a lot of time in the room except to sleep. It's within walking distance of the beach. There's no need to take a cab because everything is within reach.

I did not spend anytime in the pool, I didn't even go up to the rooftop to see the pool. I don't go Puerto Vallarta for that. I go to eat, smoke cigars, and drink. Yeah, sometimes not in that order, lol.

All in all, the property is well maintained but don't expect luxury. As I've said before, I rather spend the money I would spend on a luxury hotel on my food and drinks. I recommend a stay, but only if you are an experienced traveler who see's the value of place like this. Not people who are looking for infinity pools and beach front rooms.

I went to puerto vallarta on 04/20 thru 04/25.

We stayed there for the last two weeks in January 2017. The location to the Melacone, beach, shops, etc was very good. The condition of the rooms was good and the room was clean. The suite came equipped with the bare cooking essential, but did not include any kitchen hand towels or soap to wash dishes (better bring paper towels and dish soap). The Internet connection was poor very poor. Told the front desk on two occasions that we could not connect to the Internet, front desk knew but nothing was done, had to go to local restaurant that had Wi-Fi to be able to connect. Overall price was very good with location being a plus. Maid service was every day, shower was good and bed was comfortable once you got over the concrete base the mattress sat on (this is pretty much true for majority of places we have stayed in PV). Rooftop pool is really a wading pool. Lounge chairs are comfortable.

Room Tip: No views to speak of but the rooms are comfortable all location very good
