Ler me just say, we hade ordered a superior room with a partial ocean view and balcony and did not get that room. No balcony and no view of the ocean. We paid for the balcony room and it wasn't until 5 days in to the trip they were able to get me another room.

The staff was friendly, loved the contemporary style. A window in the celing was open so it rained on the bed. I was immediately moved to another room. Loved the personalization and feeling of welcome. Two thumbs up

Terrible Room
Jun 14 2017
We were given the worst room, street view with workers across from the room looking directly in at us made me feel very uncomfortable when we asked to change rooms we had to pay an additional $210.00 because they said they had nothing else to give us, no Apple representative around to help us out.

Convenient location
Jun 20 2016
This hotel is located near the shops and restaurants that we like to visit, and is right on the beach. However, it does seem to be crowded, especially the pool area. The weekends are the worst.

Great location, very noisy

Loved being in Romantia zone but rooms were small and need updates. Family oriented and very noisy. Rooms all go around the pool and music is very loud. Food ok but we loved sampling the local restaurant

Sunscape Hotel

We got a fantastic deal. Overall, we were happy with Sunscape although there were a few negatives: namely, the sewer gas odor that pervaded the guest corridors and the poor service and food at the Da Mario Restaurant. We were very happy with the buffet restaurant, the World Cafe, and its staff. The two Luises and Alberto were just great with friendly and efficient service throughout our stay. At the pool, Mario and Stephania kept us in drinks with ready smiles.

We stayed there for three nights on our most recent visit to PV. Great location, friendly staff. The bathrooms are a bit tight, particularly trying to get to the toilet. In our room you needed to almost step into the shower so you could close the door to get to the toilet. We enjoyed our stay and the people were great. But for us, three nights at one time was plenty at Playa Los Arcos.

Great location!

We wanted to spend a few quick days in Puerto Vallarta to get a feel for the old town and the city itself. We paid less than $100 per night for our room (125) It was not fancy but nice and clean and had a mini frig and a hairdryer. Oh and the beds were so comfy! We had a view but needed to step out of our room - two nice chairs were there. For us being right on the beach and having a view were great but the best part was the location!! We walked everywhere we wanted to explore! If we come back to stay longer we might do an upgraded room but definitely highly recommend!

One might think that after 38 years -- 2-3 trips per year I would be bored going to Hotel Playa Los Arcos ! Quite the opposite - I have just returned from a fabulous 3 week stay here and it just keeps getting better , The Hotel has made significant improvements each year to make the traveller more comfortable and eager to experience an exciting Holiday == staff is able to handle any request with a smile - Excellent Beach Service by a team of happy staff makes your day relaxing or action packed whichever you prefer = some guests await Happy Hour 2-4 with bated breath while others wait for a turn at Parasailing ! Sweet Jazz tunes by an excellent trumpet player start at 9:15 a,m - just the right touch while getting ready for a Beach Day . Evening entertainment is of the highest quality, Always improving for the enjoyment of guests . Many friendships are developed here == many returning year after year and looking forward to visiting with people they had met previously I for one have brought many friends here who can.'t wait to come back to Los Arcos . Free Wifi, 3 properties available == the main Playa Los Arcos Hotel with 3 pools - Los Arcos suites where long term guests enjoying staying plus the Hotel Dona Susanna smaller very private hideaway with rooftop Swimming Pool . A new Spa is just being renovated for state of the art massage therapy and spa treatments . Water aerobics class also available afternoons . I totally recommend these three Hotels in one location - you will not be disappointed = many visitors book their next Holiday before they leave to ensure their " favorite room" is available for the following year . ! This visit I travelled " solo" and enjoyed it very much == everyone is so friendly you really are never alone . Trisha

We really loved this hotel. Free WiFi, multiple pools & hot tub. The room was kind of small, but it had a balcony. It’s nice that they have a restaurant and bar in the hotel. Staff was extremely friendly and watched our bags when we checked out. We really loved the location. It was right by the Malecon, flea market, a bank, super market, bars, and restaurants. You’re not stuck at your hotel.

This is my second trip to this family operated basic no nonsense Mexican hotel. it's very clean with some very good staff. Victor at the bar and Antonio Garcia were extremely helpful. The buffet is mostly geared to the Mexican palate but in the afternoon burgers, fries etc. are available if your tastebuds prefer. The a-la-carte menu is good. The location is in old town so seldom one needs a taxi to go anywhere. My only two annoyances were we had a room close to the front desk where the children's pool is and you had to tolerate non-stop screaming all day.( not fun for a senior citizen ) and the activities director's voice would drive you up a wall when he gets near a microphone. Overall I would recommend this property and would certainly return.
