Terrific Place

I had upgraded to this hotel from Dona Susana and was delighted in the change. The room was spacious and quiet, the pool area was vast and the restaurant served great buffet style meals. One complaint is that people are allowed to reserve poolside and beachside loungers with just a towel or book and not show up for hours if at all. All these loungers are usually taken quickly in the morning due to this. All in all a really nice place and would definitely come back.

Excellent Experience!

Excellent Staff and Service! I've been coming here for years and really enjoy 😊 the Experience! Great Food, 4 pools, Beach location, and Again the Service is out of this World! The restaurant staff treats you like your are a "Special" Person, not just another costumer! Cheers to Alex and Rog as my Servers at the Lao Arcos Restaurant! Thanks for making me so Special! Jim D.

My husband and I just returned from a stay at Playa Los Arcos Beach Resort and Spa, where we've stayed many times over the past 30 years. As always, we were impressed! The service was friendly and helpful, and our standard room was clean, comfortable and had a lovely view of the pool area and ocean. This hotel is, in our opinion, in the very best location in Puerto Vallarta - on the ocean and within easy walking distance of interesting restaurants and shops. It also boasts a beautiful beach-front restaurant - a great place to begin or end your day. Many of the staff have been there for many years and many tourists have been visiting for many years. Obviously a good place to work and definitely a wonderful place to visit!

So disappointed ~

I have been coming to this hotel since 1981. I have brought my children here and my children's children. 6 months ago, I paid $177.00 per night to stay 7 nights in a partial ocean view room with balcony and 2 beds. When we arrived around 5:30 on 2/14/17, I was told by Magda that I couldn't have the room we paid for because of "water problems". They put us up in a room that had only 1 bed, no balcony and a window that couldn't open, that looked over the side alley. The room was so small that if you put your suitcase on the floor, you didn't even have room walk around the bed. Because the window didn't open, we couldn't air it out and had to sleep with the odor of cleaning fluids. It wasn't until I suggested that we be reimbursed that they offered it. I asked Magda how this happened and she told me that it wasn't that big of deal, that we were just going to use the room to rest for the night and we would change rooms the next day. And that's not true. It was still early and I wanted to unpack so I could be ready for the beginning of our vacation, the next day. For weeks I imagined myself sitting out on the balcony that night, enjoying the view and feeling grateful that I was there. Instead we had to live out of our suitcases that night and the following day until the room was ready. Certainly didn't feel like guests. What hurt me the most (been home for 3 days and it still brings tears to my eyes) is that the next day I checked on the room that we were supposed to stay in. I found out the reason we couldn't get into the room that we had paid for 6 months ago. They gave it to somebody else. I could have understood the water problems but that wasn't the case at all. I am just heartbroken that the hotel that I've loved for almost 40 years, treated me like this.

Above and beyond customer service.

Eliud Valdovinos went above and beyond to make me look like an all star with my girlfriend. I wanted to surprise her with a bottle of sparkling wine and something sweet. He was fast to recommend the ideal amenities and set up was just on point. Thank you for outstanding customer service and you have definitely an employee that is the meaning of customer service. Eliud thank you!
