Gross, not clean,

Straight gross. Black mold in bathroom. Toilet and sink just not cleaned. There is a difference in old and just gross and this was gross. Saw a guy in the lobby and asked if our room was gross like his. You can't do anything about it. You just have to deal with it.

Great value!

I stayed for a week, Sept. 18 - 25, 2013.  This is the off season so the room was priced very attractively.  I had seen this hotel near the sculptured pier in February when I was last in Puerto Vallarta.  The location is ideal as it is almost at the end of the line of hotels so there is not that much foot traffic passing through.  Staff is very helpful and courteous.  Room was maintained very well.  TV, A/C, and refrigerator all worked.  Nice sink and table on the balcony to enjoy the sunset.  Restaurant & bar were adequate although there are an abundance of nice ones in the area.  I recommend walking over to Fredy Tucans for breakfast.  Can't be beat.  Taxi's are readily available outside the entrance, but walk the beach and boardwalk into town.  You can always take the bus back for 6.5 pesos.

Good for the price

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
There's no bells and whistles to this hotel. For the price it's a good deal, close to everything.
