The hotel has a great view of the water, but the service was really bad. Me and my friends were there 7 days and room service only cleaned twice. They also took some of our sandals(since it was 5 girls we had alot) and left the old ones in place of the new ones. Not a friendly place to be, because the workers are anti-social. I wouldn't recommend it.

We arrived in PV with no reservations but I had done my homework and knew we wanted to stay in Old Town at a Mexican Hotel with a pool. We told the cabby and he took us to the Gaviota Vallarta. He said we could check it out and if we wanted to keep looking he would wait. It was a long flight down and I just wanted a room. I was a little unimpressed the first night but by day four we were in love with the place and didn't care about the amitities. The location is perfect. The staff is great! When we told them we were in Mexico to attend our son's wedding to a beautiful Mexican girl, they were really really nice! The hotel is quite charming and even has an elevator. The only downside were the beds....small and hard.....but the surf put me to sleep anyway. We are returning February/March 2004, this place will be on our list again.
Note: We don't like the big, fancy, American Hotels....why go to Mexico? Save money and stay in California.

My wife & I have stayed here several times. It is ideally located just off Los Muertos Beach (we have been to PV 12 times and this is our favorite area to stay). The prices are very reasonable. The hotel staff is friendly. The rooms are relatively clean. It's within walking distance of most everything worth seeing/doing in PV. This place is not for tourists accustomed to staying only in plush 4 star hotels, but we like it and will stay there again in the future.

We needed a place to stay and we walked around the area looking for something clean, cute, and for under 60 dollars. Some places charge extra for Air Conditioning, but we got an adorable room with a HUGE bed and A/C for $44 (USD). The hotel across the street was charging $76 and we stayed the night before in this TERRIBLE hotel on the beach (about a half a block down) for $50 with NO A/C. Hotel Gaviota has a nice pool, a small restaurant, and it's next door to a really nice mini-spa, where I received a one-hour salt scrub for $30 bucks!

Room Tip: Elijan una frente al mar y si es en época muy calurosa, alguna con aire acondicionado.
