My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week in July. We pre-paid for a Jr Suite, but when we arrived they gave us a master suite! The view is truly the BEST view in all of Puerto Vallarta! This hotel was perfect for us as it had everything we needed on a budget ... full kitchen and even a arrowhead style bottle of water which saved us a ton! I have stayed in an Americanized resort in the hotel zone before and I found this experience so much more enjoyable. We were only a couple blocks up from the Malecon and within walking distance to everything ... the old city (romantic zone), amazing restaurants, grocery store, bars and bus stops. You can really get a feel for the city and its people if you stay among them and not will all the fellow Americans.
My boyfriend and I are very active and walk everywhere so the 90 steps up to the hotel were not a problem for us, but would be difficult for some travelers. You can easily take a taxi up from the Malecon if need be. Please also be aware that it can be very noisy because of the nearby dance clubs, especially on the weekends. We had a 1 bedroom, so the noise didn't bother us back there, but I don't know how anyone could sleep in the living room area. The pool is pretty small, but we took the bus to Mismaloya Beach to lay out. The bus ride was $.60 and the beach is so beautiful.
If you need resort amenities, this is not the place for you, but if you are on a budget and enjoy being within the city itself and want an amazing view this is the place! I will stay here again the next time in PV.
Please see my other reviews on many close by restaurants and things to do. Have fun in PV!!
