Restaurant, Mi Pueblito, Los Arcos Hotel

The daily buffet at Mi Pueblito at the Los Arcos Hotel, whether it be for lunch or dinner, is consistently superior as are the servers who are constantly at your beck and call catering to your every need. Supervisor Capitan Mawry's thoughtfulness and consideration in his successful efforts to make sure that everyone's meal is memorable is why he is now being considered to become the manager of this great restaurant. We have known Capitan Mawry for many years and have personally witnessed his superior efforts in maintaining the highest levels of service. In our opinion, as well as countless of satisfied customers throughout the years, there could not be a better manager of this restaurant than Capitan Mawry. We sincerely hope he will be awarded this position as he so richly deserves. Good Luck Mawry, no one deserves this more than you. Joeseph & Estelle Turra

We have been coming ti Los Arcos for the last five years. Great hotel, very clean rooms, fabulous staff. It is on the beach with three pools, restaurant and close to all activities in old Vallarta. We took a day and rented a van and went to Sayulita. Our driver Eluid Valdovinos Bello is the best, he works for the hotel and drove eleven of us on his day off. We had a great time. When coming to Los Arcos be sure and introduce your self to Eliud. He will take very good care of you.

Okay stay

Our first room faced the pool with loud salsa music playing over a poolside stereo was enough to wake the dead as our room was facing the pool. The sliding glass doors that kept falling off their track weren't well insulated or soundproof. The shower had little to no water pressure at times and we didn't get hot water for 2 days we were in that room. They gladly changed rooms for us to the outside facing the Malecon and the beach which was much better. The room offers no morning coffee, ice, or even a microwave oven. Unless your all inclusive, you have to pay for coffee at the buffet and forget ice...you have to beg for ice and you can tell they're upset when you ask. We ate many meals there even though the buffet was just okay...it was convenient if you didn't know your way around. The staff, housekeeping were very friendly, but front desk staff though trying to be friendly were very impersonal. The concierge was sweet. The hotel is very dated and old and they could hire a decorator to do a great job updating the rooms for very little, as it seems they hired someone with little to no sense of taste to really make their beautifully hand crafted and over the top beautiful furniture look very tacky and cheap. You could do an awful lot for very little to update these rooms. I'm a decorator and was very saddened to see such an icon I'm sure in PV look cheap. Would stay here again, but not pay the prices we paid as it was part of a package deal. The location was perfect and we found so many wonderful restaurants, stores, and galleries close by.

First time ever writing a review for a hotel but this one deserves my feedback. My wife, 2 kids (son 14) (daughter 17) and our daughters boyfriend (18) recently returned from a trip to Puerto Vallarta and Play Los Acros Hotel Beach Resort. We stayed at the Suites across the street. We love PV and have been many times staying at some of the mega resorts, however this time, our kids asked us for more of an authentic experience and we jumped at it and started looking for the ideal hotel and Los Arcos was it. The staff was amazing, the food good, the drinks plentiful and the over ambiance could not be beat. You are in the heart of everything. Fun bars close by, top restaurants walking distance, and the Melecon a stroll or stager away, depending on whether you are going to or from. This was our daughters boyfriends first time to Mexico and Puerto Vallarta was the first place that my wife and i went on a trip when we first started dating when we were 17. It enchanted me then, and I wanted to show our kids a bit how PV once was. This hotel and location let us do exactly that. We would go out with the older teenagers in the evening and leave them to dance the night away at the local clubs on the Melecon. We felt safe and comfortable leaving them out at night, and more importantly, they felt comfortable walking back to the hotel at night. During the day, my son and I would walk out on to the pair and jump off into the ocean while the older ones slept off the fog from the night before. The cobblestone streets of the neighborhood led to the charm of the whole thing and the jungle is just up the hill. We had the opportunity to meet with and talk to Ramon in the Sales Department and he could not be more accommodating. He made sure we were having a great time and seemed to really cater to our Norte Americano needs. Our trip was a perfect one and we just returned from visiting our daughters boyfriend at college and he told us and a group of his frat boys that it was the best vacation that he has ever had and longs to go back. Mind you that this was his first real trip down to Mexico and he is hooked the way I was that first trip to PV in 1989. This hotel has a lot of "nationals" staying there and that is part of the charm. Remember, you are in another country and being around the locals is part of the fun. If you want just American tourist around you, go to Orlando. This hotel is not for everyone. It is not a mega resort. Mexico is not for everyone. What we see as imperfections are part of its charm. If you want adventure, lovely people, nice rooms, good food, and a great location in a boutique hotel, Los Arcos is for you. Again a thank you to Ramon and his staff for such a lovely stay.
