Best Value in Vallarta
First of all Puerto Vallarta is great place to visit but what makes it even greater is the Playa Los Arcos Hotel. This family oriented hotel is the perfect example of a Mexican Beach Resort. The place shouts welcome with an open entrance from the main street into the spacious open air lobby. The friendly front desk lady Magda was super well organized and indicated the availability of an ocean front suite if we wanted it but we settled for a smaller upgrade to an ocean front room. What a bargain with a small balcony and chairs a few floors above the beach at sunset, priceless.
The room is spotless with traditional Mexican furniture; excellent air conditioning and hot water, small bathroom with shower, flat screen TV, and in room safe. The housekeeping staff kept the room and the grounds of the hotel, including the 3 swimming pools immaculate. The garden around the pool was lush with palm trees and a few banana trees. There were flowers hanging from the balconies of the rooms surrounding the pool creating a very tropical atmosphere as well as three friendly iguanas.
There is a big pool for everyone, a smaller adult pool with a nice sitting ledge, easy access and even a small waterfall, and a baby pool for the real little ones to splash around in. Showers are right there to wash the sand and salt from the ocean.
The beach is swept every morning and is directly in front of the hotel. Emilio will set you up with towels and chairs and put a large sun umbrella deep into the sand to protect you from the strong Mexican sun. The beach is loaded with souvenir vendors, tour guides, seafood vendors, massage therapists, and musicians ready to help you enjoy yourself. The beach is the show but the vendors don?t bug you if you say no and you may even find a unique bargain.
The all inclusive package at a very reasonable price allows you breakfast, lunch, and dinner as well as snacks, national drinks and Mexican beers Tecate Light and Indio. The food is good, fresh, nutritious and filling. Traditional Mexican dishes are skillfully prepared as well as some American and Italian dishes. Breakfast pastries and desserts are baked daily.
The kitchen, bar staff, and waiters are at work early and stay late every day ensuring the vacationer of a good time. The bar tenders have great skills and happily mix a variety of tropical drinks. Octavio, Sergio, Juan and others were working the early shift in the Pueblito Restaurant making sure the coffee and juice were ready on your table as soon as you sat down. The food is served buffet style with as I said a wide selection, and the waiters were there to remove your plate as soon as finished allowing you to go for a second helping. Jesus, Pablo, and Betulio were some of the guys at dinner working as a team to ensure your
vacation enjoyment. Those guests staying seven nights have the opportunity to try two specialty dinner options which are out of this world.
There is musical entertainment every night in the open air lounge as well as a Mexican Night show of traditional dance and other cultural demonstrations. There are two large screens TV?s available for sporting events or whatever guests would like to watch. Another poolside bar has been installed since the last time I was there and contributes to the guests comfort.
The hotel is located in the middle of the Romantic Zone surrounded by very nice bars, restaurants, art galleries, shops, and the newly remodeled pier. Everyone greets each other with a genuine Buenos Dias exemplifying the traditional Mexican hospitality. I?ve been to Puerto Vallarta four times and have stayed at Playa Los Arcos the last two; I don?t think I?ll stay anywhere else. I say it?s the best value in Vallarta.
Great location, great price

They have 3 different pools including a jaccuzi. One adults only pool , one kids only and another for everyone. The rooms are nice and clean. They have A/C and a little balcony with seats and a table. It's right in front of the beach and the sound of the waves are heard throughour the night which ia quite lovely. The staff are really helpful and friendly. They also have a restaurant buffet which I highley recommend they're food is really good. It's better if you wake up early (early for me is 10 am) and head out to the beach to get some tanning beds right up front. The staff brings them to you so you don't have to move anything and it includes a beach umbrella too which they also set up.

Just recently had our wedding there on Oct 11th, and let me tell you it was perfect. The event planner Rogelio Sandoval is very good at what he does. He gives you options on what you want your wedding to look like and he takes care of the rest. When any issue arose he went above and beyond to accommodate our needs.
The hotel itself is right on the beach and just a few steps away from the Malecon. So many restaurants to choose from near by and plenty of bars to belly up at. The prices per night for this hotel are very reasonable for the location. Keep in mind too its a very humble place but the price its perfect
Every staff member is at your service at any minute, super friendly!
