Reviewed 6 May 2011

Stayed here in one of the smaller units, the cost is low and location to the gay beach is awesome, just down a big set of stairs and you are there! The unit had everything, cable, a/c, wifi, etc. The finishes are not new and/or modern so it's not luxury more authentic mexican and a little bit rough but always clean.

Room Tip: all rooms are different

I had to wright a review of this place since i have probably stayed there over 20 times ever since it has been under the current management dating about 11 years back.

I have always enjoyed my stay. They have done an excellent job of re-doing most of the condos in this building. The office staff is very friendly and helpful.

This is an excellent place to stay but I will advise you on three things:

1. This is definately a gay friendly establishment. If you are not comfortable being around gays, don't even think of staying here as you will be very disappointed in your choice.

2. If you are there during the low seasons (which is an awesome value) be prepared for work to be done on the empty units during that time. Hammering, sawing, etc. etc. If you are up high, it will not bother you as much, but if you are a pool person this may affect your enjoyment level. They are however courteous not to do it early in the morning or after a set time in the evening (like 5 pm.). This type of "work during the low season" is common in most large condo complexes in Mexico as they are not as croweded as in high season.

3. If you get sick, don't hesitate to seek advise from a Dr. or pharmacists immediately. They know a doctor that can be seen really cheap. Don't let an infection or bug reuin your vacation.

My partner and I have been coming to Puerto Vallarta for 4 yrs, and I have to say, I really enjoyed my stay at Torre Malibu. we rented 501 which was newly remodeled. The bathrooms was very spacious and our view of the bay was great. The pool was awesome and kept very clean. Our maid was great and suzanne was great. We will be back next year to torre Malibu! Well woth the money we have paid much more and the condos were not as clean or nice.. Hats Off to Boana Torree Malibu!

This condo property is by no means the Ritz - However it never claims to be. All the condos are owned by different persons and are in different states of repair and at different rates. We satyed in one of the cheapest - room 102. Firstly, let me say the room was dated - yet spotless. Whoever does their cleaning should be complimented. The check-in staff was in a word - lovely. Each day as we passed reception she would greet us by name and have a small chat.
The hotel itself dates from the 60´s / 70´s - and this shows in the mexican design, however it is well maintained and close to the action. There is a long stairwell straight to the gay beach, however, even for a fit 33yo, these can be quite a challenge after an afternoon at the sunset bar. There is however a slightly longer - yet easier way back to the property by avoiding the stairs and following the road.
Look, as mentioned, this place is not glam - however for the price paid, it is extreme value for money and I would stay here again.

Located in the Los Muertos area of Puerto Vallarta, this efficiency apartment hotel is a great value. We had 2 newly renovated rooms which were clean and suited us perfectly. The beds are on the hard side, but then that's often the case in budget-priced hotels! the staff are friendly and helpful, the view of the bay is gorgeous and the pool is fabulous!

Although meals are not offered, it is an easy stroll to many, many restaurants and the beach!
