Loved the sweet things best

Posted 10-Apr-2014
Pros: It was within walking distance of so many places I needed to be. The staff was very kind, friendly, and accomodating.
Cons: I needed a washcloth each day, which was not provided, and had to use one of my own hankies instead.
Location: Just a lot to see and do.
Loved the towels folded like hearts and the pretty fresh flowers in the room the second night. Good breakfast too.

Clean, affordable hotel in the Marina.

Posted 9-Apr-2014
Clean, affordable, safe hotel. The hotel is a bit dated, but it has charm. My room was clean, and the staff was friendly. There were always at least one security guard visible, and the hotel was quiet for the most part. My only complaints are 1) the room walls are not soundproof at all, and I happened to be next door to a guy who made very loud, strange grunting noises periodically (I think he was drunk the entire duration of my stay [10 days]). It actually didn't bother me because it wasn't often enough to be disruptive, just a bit disturbing when it did happen. Had I complained, I am sure the hotel would have happily either moved me to a different room, or had security ask him to quiet down. In fact, I did complain about the noise of my other neighbors TV volume at one point, and they immediately sent a security guard to very politely ask them to turn the volume down. 2) The pillows in the rooms are horribly uncomfortable. I recommend bringing your own. Other than these minor issues, I had a great stay. I would definitely recommend this hotel to individuals or families looking for a clean, affordable hotel in the marina. When I return to Vallarta, I will likely stay here again.

Diamond in the rough

Posted 5-Apr-2014
We have stayed here twice. We love love love the staff. We enjoyed the convenience of the shops marina and restaurants nearby. Food is limited but good. The shrimp ceviche is a mountain of delicious shrimp. We would like to see coffee pots and hair dryers in the room. Leo at the front desk is worth his weight in gold -very friendly and helpful. Our maid Oli was superbly attentive and fastidious about cleaning our room. The rooms are very run down. Please get new furniture. We were afraid to sit on it. Beds are comfortable and linens clean. You have to ask for wash cloths. We really appreciated the very visible security staff. The views of the marina are impeccably beautiful.

We needed accommodation for a night in PV and this had been recommended to us. Loved the location and beautiful setting of the harbour. Lots of excellent restaurants close by.

Nice hotel right on the Marina

Posted 29-Mar-2014
Cons: I noticed that 117 was being painted I hope the furniture is being upgraded as well.
My experience was the same as every year. It was satisfactory as I could not stay longer than a couple of days. If upgrading was done I believe I would consider longer stays!
