    Good beach hotel

    If location is your main criteria for booking a beach hotel in PV, this is a great choice. It is a short walk to numerous restaurants and about 10 minute walk on Malecon to night clubs. Since PV is famous for excellent food, especially seafood, I would recommend not going for the AI, because there are a lot of restaurants only few steps away and it would be a loss not to enjoy all the food options PV has to offer. The hotel staff is nice. We were satisfied with a room with balcony on the third floor - decorated in rustic style, enough space, cleaned every day. The beach is ok, the water – well, it’s an ocean, so don’t expect turquoise Caribbean colour, although it is warm for an ocean. You can’t escape the beach vendors who sometimes outnumber the tourists on the beach, which may be irritating, but it has some charm, too, I guess. Overall, very well located, good hotel by reasonable price.

    One of my worst experiences

    The hotel is very noisy from the inside and outside, couldn’t sleep and had to check out after the first night

    It was Just Ok

    It’s a great location in a very busy area. Lots of restaurants around. We did get a partial ocean view room, but we didn’t get the view of the ocean. Instead we had a newly built wall where they made new bathrooms for the new restaurant there. But we did have a huge balcony with table and two beach beds which was nice. Also the room was next to room 144 which has been converted into a hallway for employees to access the restaurant. So all day and all night you hear one the door slamming and two the employees walking in and out. Secondly since the public restroom was next told you could hear everything that was going on in there.

    Would stay again

    The staff was amazing! The spa was amazing! Pool, beach and restaurants were amazing. COVID test was a breeze. The check in took sooooooo long, they need a very different system.

    Loved

    I loved this place. It wasn't a huge resort but it was no small hotel. You could feel people had been enjoying themselves for a long time at that property. The value in the deal we got was unbeatable. The location, a 10! bartenders, beach servers, and male concierge(forgot name) were also a 10. My only complaint is we had no hot water in our shower and check in desk is under staffed. I never said anything because I jumped in the ocean and there were showers everywhere, Im pretty easy going.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Playa los Arcos has been one of my favorite hotels over the last many years. I am disappointed, though, about the new remodeling. The dining area has lost its tropical charm, being replaced with glass, metal, and artificial bougainvilea. But it looks like an additional hot tub will be nice. Bed was lovely.
