“Summer vacation in Mexico!”
Reviewed 5 July 2013

Wow! what a fun time we had at this boutique Hotel in fabulous Vallarta. The staff treated us like visiting royalty and the suites were spacious and clean and decorated per Old Mexico.the A/C worked very well and the pool was always clean and inviting. We couldnt recommend this Hotel more for those on a budget but in a convenient part of oldtownVallarta. Also, 2 blocks from gay beach and several gay bars and restaurants. Rodrigo,the manager, was very helpful and cordial. You will definitely enjoy your visit!

Room Tip: Ask for the penthouse with terrace overlookingBanderas Bay.

A bit rustic upon arrival, however, the entire experience was good. Will stay there again. It is conveniently located to everything. The drinks at the bar are definitely watered down and more pricey than other locals. I appreciate the security gates and in room safety deposit box. Rodrigio was awesome.

This could be a fun place if the staff were not rude and intent on separating you from your money every chance they get. The guy at the gate is nice and friendly but the bartender on the day I was there was very rude. I rented a lock for the locker "200 pesos" was the response but he failed to tell me that 150 is for a deposit. When I returned the lock and key, he stood there and we looked at each other for a moment, then he put 150 down on the counter with one hand and slammed the tip jar down in front of me with the other. Needless to say a tip was not forthcoming.

The waiters buzz around like hummingbirds on speed, asking you every 30 seconds whether you want another drink. If you set your drink down for a moment, it will be gone and questions about why are met with blank stares.

This could be a fun place if the staff would be more relaxed but the constant bugging to buy more drinks is annoying.

I hear there is a new venue opening up in Puerto Vallarta, across from Paco's. A little competition might be a good thing.

I was at the Vallarta Cora over Halloween week and Dia de los Muertos of 2012.

Rodrigo is a wonderful, knowledgeable, and hospitable host. Every conversation I had with him was genial and friendly.

The bar staff are conversational, engaging, and entertaining. I found the staff and the nightly visitors enough to keep me occupied so much so that I ventured out very little in the evenings.

Five star, no ... but this property is not five star rates. Comfortable, YES! The apartments are spacious and the beds are extremely comfortable.

I'm planning my next trip to Vallarta Cora now.

Room Tip: The balcony doors on the top floor rooms open. Rooms not on the top floor have the a/c unit in the...

As a gay male if you are looking for a stuffy, 4 star palace, this is NOT for you.HOWEVER...if you are looking for a full apartment at hotel room price with traditional charm. If you are looking for a casual place with all your basic needs and an energetic staff, this place is for you. If you are looking for a place that is owned by a man that TRULY has your best interest, this place is for you. Lastly, if you want more of a local cultural atmosphere in a tourist environment, this place is for you. The location has a bar/spa/pool that is open to the public from 3 p.m. til midight, of course free for guests. Local hotties stop by after work hours and it is HOT. Mingle in the bar, pool, jacuzzi, steam room. It is smokin' hot!! Don't hesitate, BOOK HERE NOW!

Room Tip: the higher up you stay, the quieter , but lower rooms give a closer look into the pool area.
