Great hotel for price

We're almost large and comfortable. Air conditioning wasn't great. The AC worked fine but not as good as it worked at its sister hotel: Casa Susana. Room was pretty clean, however I will not say it with spotless. Balcony was a great plus with a good view of the ocean from a block away. The kitchenette what's great for cooking. Staff was always very friendly.

Cook some meals in the room. Specially coffee, it will save you money from buying it at the Cafe's. The balcony is a great place to have your meal and/or coffee.

Great find in the heart of Old Town

Los Arcos Suites is located on a side street in Old Town PV, 1 block from the ocean and 2 blocks from the pier. It is close to many restaurants, shops, bars, and water activities. The hotel is clean, has a nice pool, and the staff is wonderful.

4th Trip to Los Arcos Suites

This was our 4th time visiting this hotel in the last 3 years, and again, we are very satisfied. We would come back again. it's an older hotel, so you cannot expect 5 stars, however having a kitchenette, and larger than normal rooms with a balcony makes up for it! If you are up to it there are several places to by food for breakfast/lunch if you want to save some bucks on going out for all 3 meals each day. The weekends get pretty busy with tourists and local travelers, so the main pool and beach can get a little crowded, but we used this as an opportunity to make some friends while we were there. A nice improvement since our last visit was the hotels internet - which is free. In the past it was not reliable but they have made upgrades, and it is now more than acceptable. I was even able to stream a live baseball in HD on a day where we needed to be out of the sun (sunburn!) The rooftop pool at Casa Dona Susana (part of the 3 hotels included) is a great option for a more relaxed time. The pool is not heated, so it's good on a hot day. A huge benefit to the hotel is the location we never had to take a taxi once during the trip as you can walk to all the food spots and nightlife in 5 minutes. It's also in the 'gay' area of town, and everyone there respected our LGBT relationship. Regarding the staff - they always immediately responded to any requests that we had. Specifically Javier Fransisco Ponce from the hotels main desk was exceptionally helpful. He speaks the best English of anyone at the hotel, so we always relied on him when he was working. If I had to say something was missing it would be the beach towels. I think they have been reusing the same set since out first trip 5 years ago. They are "clean" but worn out with some holes, and the occasional stain. I think it's time for a new set Los Arcos!!!

Archies Wok is the best Asian food in town, and happens to be 1 block from the hotel. It's an established place with a real Asian owner - so you will never be displeased with their food.

Great Value

I call them Mexican Hotels? This may not be PC. But I think that the majority of the time, that;s where I stay and I get the best bang for my buck.We went down with another couple and they like AI properties.They paid double what we did. And they weren't happy. They came down to the Romantic Zone where our hotel is located and we walked to everything no need for a taxi. The room was fine and very well kept.And the maids were extremely efficient leaving an extra amount of towels every day. Many times you run into linen that's a little tread bare, but nice towels here. The staff here are very friendly and helpful! Would I stay here again? You bet I would. PS This is the Best location in Town.

Perfect for two friends getting away from it all

I chose the all-inclusive package, and it really is a great value. The food is not the best food I have ever had, but it's fine, and you can always find something to enjoy. Plus, if you stay a week, they give you a free meal at their fancy outdoor restaurant, which is delicious. The room was clean, had a beautiful balcony and had air conditioning. I was very comfortable.

If you want to spend time on the hotel beach, get a spot early, or all the umbrellas will be taken.

The perfect Mexican Hotel

This is an older Mexican hotel one block from the beach with access to two other hotel pools etc. Each room is a suite with balcony kitchen: refer, sink and hot plate. This is not a Holiday Inn or American style hotel and is not for everyone. Very clean, the staff goes out of there way to make your stay perfect. We have stayed there over a dozen times. And will next year as well.

Great stay

Friendly and helpful staff and a perfect location. It was great to rest in this smaller, less busy hotel and still use the additional amenities at the larger, busier sister hotel.

Great Value

The location and the staff are definitely the best things about Los Arcos. It is right in the heart of the old town and everything (beaches, restaurants, ATM's, nightlife) is within walking distance. The staff are all very friendly and accommodating -- we never had any service issues with anyone. If there would be one thing to recommend, it would be to work on the wi-fi -- it was intermittent during the trip and the coverage was spotty in many areas of the grounds. Other than that -- and perhaps a wider selection of food -- everything was great and I would def recommending for a good, all around value for PV.

Great location...friendly service!

This hotel is located right in the heart of the Romantic Zone. Our room offered a kitchenette, king size bed and beautiful balcony. We went with the all inclusive plan and the food was fabulous! This property has two others that you can use as well. The rooftop pool at Dona Casa Susana is a real treat! We would definitely stay at Los Arcos Suites again!!!

Good stay

Love, love, love, this place and have stayed many times. Location is great for walking to everything good. Best beaches. Food at this restaurant is not good and either are the drinks so we do our own thing because there are many great places to eat and drink your own booze! Nice people except manager of restaurant. Great people at the hotel!!
