Profile: Downtown Puerto Vallarta

Snap a pic of Downtown Puerto Vallarta’s infamous seahorse statue before heading to the recently remodeled lighthouse on nearby Calle Matamoros where you can take panoramic photos from an observation deck. To see how Puerto Vallarta has inspired other artists, join the art walk around the many galleries in the resort's gallery zone.

Restaurants in the area serve a variety of gourmet seafood dishes, such as seared scallops, shrimp, octopus, and mussels with tequila over risotto. End the evening with a sunset cruise aboard a catamaran.

    Hotel oriented to domestic guests

    Ideal location right on the river, a short block off the Malecon. Very nicely landscaped central courtyard, unfortunately equipped with wrought iron furniture that hurts to sit in. The rooms are adequate and functional as long as you have reasonable expectations for a budget hotel in a developing country. The pool will appeal only to kids. In 11 days, we never saw any other foreign guests. The onsite restaurant has nice views and is surprisingly popular with locals. The worst aspect is they expect you to wear a wrist band for the entire stay. And, after 11 days paying for an upgraded room, they made me pay 100 pesos to extend the checkout by 1 hour - on a midweek day when the place was nearly empty.

    it's proximity to the beach, shopping, restaurant and the old town. They don't have hot water to make tea available. only coffee at the lobby. I like the garden/lobby.

    Un hotel sin lujos perfecto si tu plan es únicamente bañarte y dormir. La alberca del hotel estaba muy sucia, el agua tenía basura y un color poco agradable.

    Absolutely worst hotel I've ever stayed in. Do your research before coming here. Staff was super friendly, but the hotel is beyond disgusting. Never again

    Very basic. No extras! No blowdryer, no mini frig, no microwave, and no coffee pot. Elevator was broke the whole time and we were on the 3rd floor! That sucked when we were checking out and had to drag all of our luggage down the stairs.
