As I say, I like this area of PV, as you can walk easily anywhere. Restaurants, small shops and good bus service all close by. And so is beach, just half block away.
Hotel has friendly staff, very helpful with local info, etc. The rooms are okay, clean and with small kitchenette, 2 burner cook top and small under counter refrigerator. Hotel is used by lots of families with small children.

Room Tip: I like street view with the sideway view of ocean the best. Street sometimes gets noises, with gas...

Los Arcos Suites are comprised of the larger units of the three Los Arcos properties. I did love the location. Just up a pleasant block from Playa Los Arcos Hotel and a vibrant beach scene. I loved that you were able to use the Playa Los Arcos Hotel pool, hot tub, and beach umberellas. With a friend it would have been a different experience, but I was there on my own in late September- the very quietest season. I found the place a bit spooky being that I was almost alone in the place. On occasion in evening there was no one at the desk as I passed through the lobby. I didn't feel safe. The staff were very personable and enjoyable. The units were large and highly functional. The hot water and AC worked well. The decor of the rooms was not particulary pleasing to me- cold white and blue, the soft furnishings pretty well worn. I did enjoy the balcony overlooking the street. But at night I was nervous. After two nights I asked to be moved across the street to their other property- Casa Dona Susana. It was busier, cosier, and travelling solo it suited me way better.

This is a very nice place for the traveler that wants to be in the center of things. Nightlife, restaurants and shopping abound within walking distance and you wouldn't need a taxi to have a fulfilling weeks' stay in this town, if you habitated here. There are two nice pools, it's right on the beach. And from the street, you can look in the front door and see the ocean. So it has an inviting charm. It's inexpensive. And at night, depending on what room you have, you will either enjoy Mexican street sounds or the surf. And I mean it; it can be very noisy in the front or side exterior rooms, or it can be very soothing and you'll never hear any of it if you're situated inside or toward the rear. So if choosing to stay here, my advice is to be clear about what your preference is. If you like to party, then you're on the right street. If you don't want to hear it all night, this is still a decent mid-priced option if you are sure to secure yourself a room that is either on the inside of the horseshoe shaped building, or at the rear of it. The restaurants are typical buffet, I think it's mostly if not only all-inclusive here. We had the all-inclusive. But the best part I reiterate is, that this is right in the heart of the coolest side of town. The staff are also nice. You must expect at least a 50% of the guests here at any time to be nationals. When it is not a mexican holiday, the hotel will be at less than full occupancy, and in my opinion, any hotel is more pleasant when it's not full. So much the more so in this case. But it's really nice, as long as you avoid national holidays when staying here.

Just spent 2 nights there, and was very pleased. It's not an ultra-modern hotel - but it's a well-maintained, charming, comfortable, and clean hotel with a stellar location.

It's in old-town (Zona Romantica), on the southern half of PV. It's on a dead-end street and very quiet, but the bustle of the beach, streets with lots of traffic and shops, and the Malecon is just a small block away. It shares access to the beach (and pools) with their sister hotel Playa Los Arcos, which is just a minute walk. The suites have a small pool on site, but the sister hotel has a much bigger and bustling pool, decent food and a bar, and great beach with some basic service (and chairs, umbrellas, and towel service). You are on the southern tip of the Malecon - and within 5 minute walk there are endless shops, dining options, street vendors and more. There is good live entertainment nearby too - public stages/spaces all within easy walk. Also city buses and taxis are also within a block - so easy to get around town, or out of town too. 25 minute tax ride to/from the airport

The rooms were spacious and comfortable - small kitchenette, bathrooms with good water pressure, comfy beds, and basic furniture (couches, desk, older TV etc). AC worked great, nice balcony, and very quiet. Again, not ultra-modern, but comfortable, clean, and well-appointed.

The staff were very friendly, spoke English, gave good local tips. Elevator and luggage service to boot.

The Los Arcos Suites is exactly what we wanted, and what we expected. No, it is not a huge resort; my partner and I don't like big hotels. We want quiet, friendly surroundings, and Los Arcos Suites did not disappoint.

The rooms are spacious, clean, and sufficient. The old world wood dresser, chest of drawers, and desk were efficient and plentiful. We loved having a balcony, on the north side of the hotel, which was the shady side of the hotel during March.

If you want a luxury resort or hotel, this is not it! But if you want a clean and comfortable 2 star hotel then this is it. You are right in the middle of the Romantic Zone, yet on a dead end street which is more quiet. The front desk staff was always friendly. On the last day we cut off our wrist bands and were then told that they needed them upon check-out. So, be sure to save them and let them cut them off at check-out.

Clean, comfortable, good location, excellent value for the money. If this sounds good to you then you've come to the right hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms on north side have shady balconies, on the street side, so you'll have some street noise.

Hotel is on a dead end street and therefore very quiet. Rooms were very spacious and nice. You get the use of the sister properties, Casa Suzanna across the street with a rooftop pool and Los Arcos Hotel about a half block away and is on the ocean. More pools, jacuzzi, towels, lounge chairs, waiter service on the beach, etc.. Very clean and relaxing relaxing. Went two weeks this year and thinking about 3 to 4 next time.
