“greatest location and good pool”
Reviewed 4 March 2004

I love the location and the pool which is generally in the shade and is good for lap swimming. BUT the beds in the room that I like have the springs coming up and are very annoying. We have stayed in the same room for 3 years and enjoyed facing the old town and having the patio facing the ocean. Finally, had to leave early and move north to much nicer acommodations but without beach, good pool and other niceties of Los Arcos like the entertainment nightly. heated pool and resident iguanas. As mentioned by others, front desk staff are abrupt, non co-operative and evidentlhy just don't care since they have people who have returned their for over 30 years. This year the condo sales people were not too bothersome and even the vendors on the beach were hardly aggressive but were certainly entertaining. Another big plus is the Huichol Indian who sets up a display table Wed and Sat evenings and has the best prices you will ever see. He has some really beautiful larger pieces of beadwork and wool paintings worth investing in. Even if you don/t stay there, walk over those evenings and do some shopping if you want any of the beaded crafts. Dancing is available very night too.
NEXT YEAR we will take foam rubber 2 inch pads with us if we stay there again.
