“Beautiful, magical and always welcoming!”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

I've just returned from another wonderful stay at Casa de Los Arcos. It never disappoints. As always, it was relaxing, serene, private, charming, and good for my soul. There's no better way to start the day than gazing at the spectacular panoramic view of Banderas Bay. And at the other end of the day, there is nothing more beautiful than the sunset (and a margarita) looking out over the ocean and the town. Susan and David are the best of hosts - welcoming, helpful, informative, and fun. It's just one of those special magical places. I'm already looking forward to next year!

Susan and David, the owners and managers, as well as the staff are awesome!! They will make you feel at home. Wonderful ambiance in a beautiful place. You can cook yourself, ask for help with the cooking or eat in town. Do not miss it!!

Casa de los Arcos is simply the perfect place for a truly wonderful vacation in Vallarta. Susan and David are warm and hospitable hosts who make sure that your stay is a real visit to paradise. We have visited on five separate occasions, and each time has been delightful and memorable. The views are spectacular from every angle of the property, and everything is well appointed and beautifully decorated. They even have a new private garden where you can sit and enjoy the views while listening to a waterfall. The staff is friendly and attentive, and so are Susan and David’s pets!

We just got back from a week-long stay and are as excited as ever to go back as soon as we possibly can. After an initial evening spent with our hosts (always a splendid occasion), we spent a few of our days just lounging in the Casita, soaking in the vistas and the warm, tropical sun in an atmosphere of complete peace, quiet, and comfort. But there are lots of things to do in Vallarta, and Susan and David always have excellent suggestions of the best places to eat and take advantage of what the town and surrounding area have to offer—whale-watching, tours, day trips, beach, whatever you like to do.

Vallarta is a magical place, made all the more magical by the existence of Casa de los Arcos. We can’t wait for our next visit!!

We travel often and very rarely do we go to the same place twice. Susan and David have created a new level of hosting in one of the prettiest settings I have had the opportunity to explore. This is our second Holiday spent at the Casa with a short trip in March as well. While we led a very active and private 10 days or so we returned to the states with a smile on our faces even as we faced 7 degree weather. There is a magnetic atraction here that continues to draw you in and it eminates from our hosts whom are just genuine!

Room Tip: We have stayed in the Palapa as we love the way it invites the outdoors in!

My family and I were able to book our Christmas here. The whole place was breathtaking! Beautiful views, sunlight, and good energy. Susan and David are the most welcoming people. It rained one day and she kindly lent us her umbrellas. They are so warm and easy to talk to. I highly recommend booking your stay here. You have your own beautifully curated space to think, read and relax. I slept well ;) Super close to downtown and beach. You have the option to have a personal cook which we did for one night and her chiles rellenos were amazing! We slept with the windows open (no mosquitos). So easy to have a taxi pick you up. Thank you Susan and David for making our family trip so memorable x

We recently returned from 12 marvelous days in Puerto Vallarta. What a great time to travel to Mexico, just ahead of the holiday rush and the snowy Canadian winters that we love. From start to finish, it was a wonderful mix of new cultural experiences, new tastes, breathtaking scenery, gloriously abundant flora + fauna, and tons of sun, sand and sweet relaxation! Our hosts, Susan and David, were warm and so very generous, the housekeeping staff, cheerful and accommodating and our holiday 'home' a delightful Mexican 'palace' perched on a hill.

BE SURE TO.....
--walk The Malecon early in the morning before it gets hot. It's not crowded and there's sculptures and swaying palms and the sound of the surf and the cool Pacific breezes and the folks walking their big and little dogs. It is all so very entertaining.
--grab shoreside seats under a thatched tiki umbrella at any one of the local bars near the Pier and enjoy a bucket of beverages and a platter of chips + salsa as the Mexican afternoon sun heats up. Good time to people-watch!
--shop daily for fantastic local fresh fish, colossal shrimp and produce that you can handily prepare in the Casa.
--make your own breakfast sandwiches and flavour the eggs with an awesome Mexican spice called Tajin.
--spend afternoon 'siesta time' enjoying the spa-like ammenities, waterfalls and gardens that are Casa de los Arcos. You'll love the time to unwind and look forward to it everyday.
--consult daily with Susan + David for things to do. They both love all things Mexican and are great promoters of the culture and the history

You are going to love Casa de los Arcos!

We just returned from a week stay at Casa de los Arcos and had a wonderful time. This is the first time we stayed in something other than an "all inclusive" and were very happy we did. We find all inclusive's phoney, boring and restrictive. Staying at Casa de los Arcos we were able to enjoy all what PV and Mexican culture had to offer, especially with the help from our wonderful hosts, Susan and Dave. They gave us awesome ideas of things to do and restaurants to enjoy--Cuale Paradise Restaurant, and the Virgin of Lady Guadalupe festival for example. Susan and Dave invited us up to their casa for snacks and margaritas - delicious. I accidentally forgot my camera in the return cab ride from the Botanical Gardens, and without Susan and Dave's help I would never have gotten my camera back; so thank you again, Susan and Dave, for all your help and kindness. Susan even gave us a ride to the airport when it was time to leave. I would definitely return, and would like to come with our kids next time.
