Great vacation spot

We loved our stay here. Great location. The pools were really nice. Great access to the beach (it's almost like an extension of the hotel). And only a half block to Los Muertos Pier in case you want to catch the water taxi. Our first room had a kitchenette (but the stove shocked us when it turned on) and a pullout bed for the kids, and a very cramped bathroom, so we asked for a double the next night and were much more comfortable.

Need to improve customer service

Did not get greeted. Probably because I was not white. When I arrive another van arrive with white people got greeted and helped with their luggage. When I arrive no one even bother to ask for help with luggage there were just standing there. I had to check in first and then get help with luggage when my car was park in front of the hotel.

Great Stay in the Heart of Town

We started off at the sister hotel Casa Dona Susana but moved here due to something wrong with our door. If you want something quieter, Casa Susana is a great alternative as it's adults only and down a quieter street, one block away from here. We were very happy at Playa Los Arcos. It's a lot of families and children running around, but we didn't spend much time at the hotel anyway. We did the all-inclusive package which was very worth it since it didn't cost much more. It included unlimited food at the buffet which was just mediocre food, but for a small cost definitely worth it - I mostly took advantage of the fresh fruit. It also included unlimited booze which was the basic light beers, a white/red wine option and then several liquors - basically wells and margaritas. The restaurant (Mi Pueblito) is right on the beach so it's beautiful although we mostly took advantage of being able to walk around with drinks and got them to go walk around town with. Our room was pretty small with no fridge and the A/C was kind of weak, but can't complain too much, we had a small view of the ocean and unbeatable price. Everyone was also very nice and helped us move rooms, get a taxi at the end of our stay, etc. Best part was probably the location. It's right in the heart of the Romantic Zone which is packed with great restaurants and bars. Right down the street is Pancho's Tacos and Bar La Playa which were two of my favorite spots of the trip. It's also right on the beach and as a guest, you can get beach chairs and umbrellas put up for you which was really nice (and wifi was good enough to still get it on the beach). Highly recommended!

Can't beat the location. All the restaurants are out your front door. The Pool is excellent and the service is great. We weren't expecting to get the all inclusive but got a great deal so we did. Breakfast, snacks and lunch were better than we expected. However, the dinners were below par. We ended up going out for dinner every night because of the great location of the hotel. If you're looking for a great location, good pool and very nice beach then this is the hotel for you.
