On our last visit to Puerto Vallarta we stayed up north but we liked everything in Zona Romantica so much we spent all our time down there. This time we looked for a place to stay right on Los Muertos beach and we found the Eloisa Hotel. The location can't be beaten. Exit the hotel turn right and walk about 100 steps and you're on Los Muertos. And so many great places to eat within just couple blocks and an Oxxo on just about every corner.
This was our first visit in the summer and the hotel was fairly empty. We had the entire rooftop pool and terrace to ourselves each morning - great views. No breakfast is served during the offseason, though. We used the lobby pool a couple times too so we could sit in the shade while our little girl swam.
We upgraded to a "suite" which had a kitchenette and living room -- very spacious. Overall, a pretty nice layout with a balcony with a "water view" -- if you look sideways along the building. Yes, we faced the park. Yes, there was a morning Zumba class that other reviewers complained about but the music didn't bother as at all - in fact, it was quite nice. The room is NOT luxurious and it's NOT modern. But everything seemed in good repair and well cleaned. The only complaint was there was no hot water out entire stay. We asked the front desk about it but it never did get fixed the whole time we were there. When it rained (it was rainy season) there was a 27" flat screen with cable TV and about 100 channels (about 8 english-speaking) and the free Wi-Fi in the room was pretty good out in the living/dining room but was strangely weak in the bedroom. There were two A/C units and several powerful ceiling fans that worked so well that my wife even complained it was too cold in the room a few times at night.
Next time, I might look for a different hotel with a little more luxury if it's near the same area and if I go in the summer. In the winter, it doesn't rain as much so we are almost never in the room anyway and this hotel would be perfect (if it had hot water).
