My husband and I stayed here for several days in June, and we loved it. The owners were so sweet and kind, and took very good care of us. The rooms are sparkling clean and beautifully designed. The pool is just perfect for a late afternoon dip. The restaurant at the front of the hotel serves German cuisine, but has a great selection of tequilas too. The owners clearly put a lot of thought and care into everything they do, and treated us like we were old friends even though we hadn't been there before. If you are looking for a place to stay in the Zona Romantica, this is definitely the place.

We stayed at Hacienda Alemana for 2 nights in early June. From the moment we entered through the front gate, we knew we had made the right decision. We were immediately greeted (they knew our name without us telling them), our bags were wisked up to our room for us (we stayed on the top floor), and we were offered a complimentary bottle of champagne to drink during our stay!

Our standard room (King size bed) was very clean, had great air conditioning, a flat screen TV, mini fridge, a balcony overlooking the pool, and it had a nice modern bathroom area -- we were very satisfied! Besides the tranquil pool, there was also an outdoor terrace on the top floor with chairs and tables where you could, for example, watch the sunset while having drinks.

Mike, the owner, originally from Germany, his Mexican wife and their daughter could not have been more hospitable! We were served an abundant poolside breakfast each morning (eggs, cereals, yogurt, fruit, cheeses, meats, etc.).

The location of Hacienda Alemana was ideal - in the heart of the Zona Romantica, steps from restaurants, bars and shops. The beach was a few minutes walk down the street.

We had a terrific stay at Hacienda Alemana and would recommend it to all our friends!

Its been a year since our previous stay at Hacienda Alemana. New this time is the pool and its perfect for a quick refreshing dip before heading out on the town.

We traveled a lot and this is by far the best place we've ever stayed at. Great value, terrific location, and the most fabulous hosts.

Thanks for another exceptional vacation !!!

We are planning our 5th.

Mike and Irma have become our extended family in Mexico. We are home when we visit Puerto Vallarta. The amenities remain the same...perfect! The surroundings remain the same...perfect!

Our friends and colleagues always ask us where we stay when we visit Puerto Vallarta and now we always answer Hacienda Alemana. We have tried the resorts, we have tried staying on the cheap. This is a slice of both. The value here is unmeasurable. The pricing is competitive. Factor out the cost taxes and breakfast that are typically extra when you stay somewhere and suddenly the room rate borders on the side of frugal. Pay in cash...even better discount! Everything is included in the rate and off season rates are clearly the better value. And the service is impeccable.

Do yourselves a favor and at least compare this destination to any other before committing. You will not be disappointed!

If you have never been or are returning to Puerto Vallarta, Hacienda Alemana is a fabulous place to stay. Central to absolutely everything - the beach, the restaurants and the shops. This boutique hotel is clean, quiet, private, shaded pool for reading, relaxing, dipping and rooms equipped with comfortable beds and good TV reception.
The family who own and run the place are as special as their hotel. Last but not least, a wonderful Mexican breakfast you will not soon forget. Mangos, papayas, peppers, smells that are irresistable.
My husband and I have stayed here twice, we're New Yorkers, we need alot; beach, sidewalk, good food, TV, culture and people - this place works just great in all ways.
We love Puerto Vallarta and finding Hacienda Alemana is like having a second home in Mexico. Lucia y Juan Jackson

The rooms and hosts were lovely. We were offered a delicious breakfast despite sleeping in beyond advertised breakfast hours. Our room was enormous with a full kitchen and living area. Nice shower. AC took a while to cool the room on the first day but after that it worked great. Housekeeping was excellent.

The only downside was that there wasn't any kind of door separating the bathroom from the rest of the room.

Where to start... The property is a gem from end to end. Every detail is executed with care and good taste. You enter through the German restaurant which has a beautiful courtyard, good food, and a nice well stocked bar inside. The restaurant staff are professional, and speak both English and Spanish. After passing through the restaurant you enter the hotel grounds. There are only 10ish rooms and they surround a courtyard with a nice small pool with a table to sit, lounge chairs and lots of tropical plants. The u shaped courtyard is bordered on one side by a three story wall that the owners took the time to tile and decorate with air orchids, a touch that turns the entire wall into something enjoyable to look at.

The is clean, well decorated and comfortable. There are lots of nice touches including a large shower with a stone walk up area, large flat panel tv with good cable selection, quiet efficient air-con, and large deck with plants and comfortable furniture. The fit and finish of the room is 4 star.

For me the best part was getting to know Tatiana. She was running the hotel while her parents were on vacation. She was such a gracious host she made you feel like you were visiting her home. Breakfast was served in the main house kitchen and it was top notch and included fresh local fruit, homemade bread, etc. She was around the hotel off and on and always greets you with a smile and asks if you need anything or how your stay is. Bonus: she speaks Spanish, English and German!

One of the top places I have ever stayed!
