This was my 3rd time staying here. I have spent years in PV and no longer have a desire to waste my money on the fancy resorts. This place is perfect for my visits. Its location is perfect and almost all buses pass by. Cheap. Air conditioning. Right in-between the Malecon, Zona Romantica and the ocean. I will stay here again.

This is a decent hotel but don’t expect a lot. Staff is very nice but don’t expect an elevator. Also the bathroom did not have an extractor or any ventilation for that matter. The room had nice amenities but the microwave button got stuck when pressed to open the door. We told reception all these things since day one buy they did not do nothing. BTW, the pool is more like a fountain or a kids pool - no dept. It’s a decent place if you just need a place to sleep.

I actually loved the property but they put me in a room filled with very visible black mold all over the bathroom and in the actual bedroom. I didn't realize until that night when I couldn't breathe . I stayed the night and kept the windows open and slept with my mask on. They moved me the next morning. I was sick throughout my entire stay with bronchitis because of it. I stayed an extra day but instead of allowing me to stay in the new room I had been in for a few days they made me move to a lower class room for my last night. Due to the inconvenience I think they should have let me stay in that room. I had to go to urgent care and get a z pack and prednizone and a new inhaler since I had to use mine so much there.
