You can't find a friendlier hotel that is clean and so close to everything in the RZ. The food is really bad though. Really bad. Still you are surrounded by great restaurants plus this hotel is extremely safe and secure.

I recently stayed at San Marino. It was my first time even though I've been travelling to PV for 23 years. It was perfect for me! On the beach, in old town, clean, friendly staff and adult only areas. They were efficient at check-in, helpful with my bags to the room and any time I had a question or needed...

Had a 5 night booked stay , Staff very nice, sadly the Hotel can use improvements on the following. Super Hard Beds, Poor WiFi , and non working AC. Location is walking distance everywhere! Ocean front hotel that can improve in the mentioned can go a long way.

So I have been to this hotel a few times A few things to note about this hotel. The location is amazing. Really hard to beat. Spend a bit more money and get a suite. You will have a balcony right on the beach. The rooms are pretty basic but the views are amazing. You would pay a ton for...

This hotel is in a great location, on the beach, near stores and shops and within walking distance of lots of good restaurants. We were not particularly impressed with the food from the hotel's only restaurant and ate at nearby restaurants for most of the meals. The hotel is older but the staff are very friendly and work hard to...

Great location and friendly staff BUT it took two days and two requests to replace the broken ceiling light full of dirt and a large dead cockroach. Bathroom needs a major reno. Pillows very lumpy. Would for sure return to Puerto Vallarta but not to this hotel. We had a basic room and did not pay for an upgrade but...

We stayed here 2.23 - 3.3 (9 days).

It was tiny, but that was not the issue. This hotel really needs a remodel, but for the price, as...
