Hotel Portonovo is a small, clean, modern hotel which met all my expectations. I was not looking for a big resort hotel. Portonovo is located in Centro district, the old downtown away from fast food restaurants and glitzy hotels. It is a 3 minute walk to the beach and about ten minutes to the Malecon. There are plenty of restaurants serving authentic Mexican and several taco stands for a late night snacks. And there is a large supermarket down the street. The hotel itself has a restaurant which serves breakfast and lunch. There is a rooftop pool, small, but perfect for cooling off at the end of the day. The hotel provides 3 computers in the lobby and the wi-fi worked well. One complaint one reviewer had was noise. Keep in mind the hotel is located DOWNTOWN, so expect some traffic noise. But ask for a room on the west side which faces a quieter street. It was my first time in PV, so I reserved a shuttle. Next time I won't because it was quite a bit more expensive than a taxi. Just hop on one of the many yellow cabs. One way fare about 100-120 pesos. Only complaint: no ice offered at the hotel. I can live without a fridge in the room, but I'd still like to have access to ice. Mexico is a hot place! Having ice for drinks would be a big plus.
