We choose this hotel after looking for a change from our week in an all inclusive Neuvo Vallarta resort. This was the perfect choice. Two blocks west of the beach, two blocks north of the river and 3 blocks south of the church. Easy to walk to all locations.
Staff were very friendly offering us our room earlier and letting us choose a room away from the busy street. They also had suggestions for shopping and food which were all fantastic suggestions we were pleased with.
Free wifi and coffee.
Windows were old and wrought iron single pane so they let in a lot of the street noise.
ac worked very efficiently.
Beds were firm.
They will offer guests a hospitality room to shower before your flight home and will hold your bags after you have checked out.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and if you are looking to experience and explore the city. This is the place.
The staff were exceptionally pleasant to speak to, and will happily chat with you for a bit if you sit in the cafe downstairs. The hotel itself is nice and neat, with a little pool in the center and open air hallways. I stayed for two nights and found it extremely enjoyable. The location is great.
We love this hotel for it's location in the Central area of Puerto Vallarta. Since it is located next to the Rio Caule and only a couple blocks from the Ocean, it is easy to walk to the beaches in the Romantic Zone, easy to walk to the Malecon, easy to shop, all of it. It is an old style Hotel but in good condition for it's age. The Suites are like small apartments and are very comfortable. We don't like staying in Resorts. For people who prefer that, they may want more amenities than Encino provides.
Perfect location to board walk ,shopping, and places to eat. The staff were so accomadating ,great breakfast good talks in morning .I had read the church bells were annoying but we hardly heard them but thought them pleasent .We had a rent car and they had parking ,but for only 3 cars ,we never had a problem.ifyou rnt a car do it from home and know your insurance, you must purchase liability from Mexico.Taxi at Airport is very expensive as it is here , but you can get your luggage walk a short distance to HWY 200 and pay much much less.
We were so lucky!!!!!! We had the hotel for only my husband and myself for a week...
We have never been so pampered in our life...The staff is fantastic, very attentionate. As locals, they guided us to the best places that were not too touristic, while totally respecting our privacy.
The room was great. The swimming pool on the roof top and the fantastic view of the old city, church and the bay was a daily gift that we thoroughly enjoyed.
We will definitely come back and recommend this place to those who really want to enjoy Puerto Vallarta real life, far from the resorts, in the heart of the city.
I love this place because it is really a home away from home! JR and Jimmy are very nice and friendly. You asked and you will get it! I mean anything from them! :) I always asked them where to go and eat. They gave me tons of suggestions!
Anna which is the maid cooks really good breakfast! A La Mexicana is a must try!! (spicy)
My room is very clean and big. Although I have to share bathroom with one other guest, it's totally fine with me because all of the other guests are very nice and friendly. The room does need some maintenance.
The rooftop is a place I go everyday! Very nice view.
Lastly, great location! Close to the beach and everything else~
This place was amazing, I'd highly recommend it to friends and family! The location was perfect, with only a few minute walk to get to the beach and downtown, everything is within walking distance, allowing you to explore the neighborhood and streets, which were very safe and welcoming!
Alex and his staff really made us feel at home!
