First off, the images on their website make the property look like it’s in much better condition than it really is. Upon arrival we noticed how dirty the property is, starting with the smell by the elevators near the lobby. The trash cans near it smelled for the entirety of our stay. When we got to our floor, there was a dirty dish that stayed on a stair ledge for multiple days. When we took our food to our room, the dishes also stayed there after house keeping left. Other members of our travel group noticed this too and asked housekeeping about it, housekeeping said it was the kitchens job to pick up. The bathrooms in the rooms did not feel clean either, especially since when the mirror fogged up after a shower there was writing on it from the previous guests. One night we also had baby roaches crawling around in our bathroom. The building is old, but old things can be clean, kept up, and still very beautiful. Some staff seemed very unhappy here. I have traveled to many hotels across Mexico and never experienced staff beefing with customers. Specifically in the buffet restaurant- Mi Pueblito, some staff was very pleasant (the omlet and bacon chef was a spectacular women, who was kind and welcoming) while some also were not courteous. My wife experienced an altercation with a chef and server vs. a guest over the guest not using the correct serving spoons. The restaurant Mi Pueblito looked newer than the rest of the place, I am assuming they are working on remodeling?

I liked that’s a small resort easy to go around. Rooms feel humid and because of it, beds and pillows have musky smell. If you reserve thru Expedia they will only except passport as ID for check in.

If you're looking for an ultra-sleek, modern, cookie cutter hotel, head to the Hilton. If you're looking for an authentic, charming property in a perfect location, stay at Playa Los Arcos! Our family of five (including three teenagers) stayed in two rooms for a week and were comfortable and happy the whole stay. Our rooms reminded us of a Catholic mission, which we found original and lovely. The property is located right on the beach and on Olas Atlas which provides access to countless shops, restaurants, bars and clubs. The hotel staff were incredibly kind, helpful and cheerful. This resort doesn't have tons of bells or whistles, but frankly that's what makes it wonderful - it feels like you're part of the family.

We stayed with our 2 kids 11 and 2. Our room had an ocean view. The room was clean and air conditioned. Pools are amazing! This is the place to stay if you’re staying with family or just wanting to have a relaxing time with your partner. It’s in the heart of Vallarta. We didn’t try their food or drinks at the hotel but there are plenty of restaurants walking distance. Definitely would come back!
