"clean/quiet, 1 building from malecon"
this hotel was clean, quiet (unless your sitting on the balcony watching the Mexicans go about their lives) which we loved doing...it is close to everything, and very easy to get around. just 30 seconds out the front door is a kiosko (spelling) its like a 7-11, where we bought our ice, water, and flavored mineral water daily...they don't all speak English, but we didn't find it a problem, and they are so friendly. the staff at the hotel were so accommodating to us as well, always there to help when/if you needed it. the food in the restaurant was good, their pizza the best we had tried, and we tried 2 other places. only down side was their pool, as the restaurant tables are around the pool...but if your only looking to dip in, and refresh, it was fine. we've been to 4 resorts, this was our first stay off of one, and eating around PV, I would never go back to a resort! there was a 'lays' kinda like sobeys, about 15-20 minute walk up the malecon, past the mcdonals...keep straight, and it had booze, fresh food, and was really cheap. so we made 'to go' cups often and walked everywhere. it was very memorable, and an awesome stay! hats off to all their staff as they are so wonderful! :)
