We stayed four nights at the Hotel Rio, two when we landed in Mexico before we headed north up the coast and two when we were on our way home. We loved this place! Just walk out the door and you are right on the malecon, and near everything that makes Puerto Vallarta so fun- restaurants, bars, beautiful people and beaches. Also you can walk in any direction and find the basic stuff you'll need like drinks, and snacks etc.. It's not too quiet, but with the windows shut, (and the AC on), you can get a nice night's sleep. We had two different rooms. One was with a queen bed, recently updated with flat screen etc., balcony with excellent people watching, great! The other was a corner unit that was not updated, but it had a kitchen, and a couch, and an awesome view of the entry to the malecon, and beach from the room and balcony. We actually liked that one better, just for the view, and the fridge and kitchen area. The staff really took good care of us while we were there, and answered every random question I threw their way. I probably drove them crazy, but they still smiled and joked with me throughout my stay. Overall I would definitely recommend this well located, friendly and affordable hotel.
