We loved this place. We didn't want a all-inclusive serving American buffet food, so we found this place and really enjoyed the experience-- in fact, this is where Mexican families stay when they vacation. The staff does not speak much English, nor do my wife and I speak much Spanish, but the staff was friendly and we got along very well. This is the oldest hotel in Puerto Vallarta-- according to the many US expats, you can see it in the movie "Night of the Iguana" as the bus pulls into town, so it is a bit old although well maintained. The property is well-kept and clean and very convenient to the shopping and restaurants in town. A fresh water dispenser is in the hall, and it was empty a few times, but that was minor. A small pool is on the roof, but be aware that it's not heated. We also didn't have toilet paper the first day so bought some, only to come back and see the bathroom fully stocked with it! Our fault for not asking. We didn't want the burden of a rental car, and we were able to cab easily to local attractions (go to the Zoolgico de Vallarta-- the "pet the animals" package is pricey, but where else can you pet a two-week old tiger kitten?). We got a map of the area showing the local taco stands, and loved the experience. This is for the adventurous and culturally aware. Overall, we gave this place high marks for being clean, well-maintained, and cool!
