Me and my wife going here for the first time November 2018. We are from indonesia, we just married at october 2018 and this trip is our honeymoon trip😍😍😍. we do love the taste of food at El Ducito restaurant and they were very kindly people. We stay at Arista Bugambilias Hotel, this hotel clean enough with small room...and It is traditional and not Americanized. the staff help us a lot. We love the restaurant that sets along the beach a little bit expensive. We loved the proximity to the center of town. We loved the peaceful area that had hammocks....Thank you. Gracias, muy amable
The hotel was comfortable, but very VERY noisy! We spent 2 days here. The first night they were spraying for bugs at 10:30pm in the room below us, all the lights were on and it was extremely noisy!! Sounded like a construction zone, we never got a strait answer as to why this happened, the second night we had to ask them to turn down the music at the vacant pool at 11pm.. the pool was very nice and the restaurant pretty but average food.
If you are expecting an American style resort, this is not the place for you. However if you know what to expect from a typical "Mexican" resort, this is it. Sure there are lizards, and you might even see a tarantula, but the Air conditioning works, the pool is cold, the food is good, its a great location right on the beach and the beds are clean. If you want a Cancun resort . . .just go to Cancun! :)
This was the best looking hotel in Arista but boy are appearances deceiving The room was old grubby and shared a window with the next door room whcih meant there was a gap in the wall - The shower tiles were cracked and there were stains on the wall Postivily the aircon worked and here wherte he humidity is about 90% that was essential The bar staff were rude and unhelpful (unique on our 4 week holiday) and the food came straight from the freezer to the deepfat fryer PA is a filthy litter ridden town hiding behind the most beautiful beaches and palapas serving some of the best food we saw in Mexico Go for the bath warm sea and excellent seafood but avoid this hotel like the plague
Puerto Arista was the last stop on our Mexico trip. The village seems pretty old as are all the buildings including the Hotel. From all the Hotels in the village, the Arista Bugambilias looked the best, so we decided to stay. We got a better than advertised rate (565 Pesos = US$ 51). We stayed in the 3rd floor. The room was good but the bathroom really showed it's age. However, I did not expect luxury. The room and bathroom were both very clean with no insects. The TV was newer and they had plenty of channels. A/C worked very well but it was a noisy wall unit. The pool was nice and clean except for a few leaves that would be blown into the pool. The beach in front of the Hotel is very beautiful. The waves were high and the current strong.. Not really ideal for swimming but great if you like waves (like I do) or surfing. The water temperature was very nice (mid 80's (Fahrenheit)) and that was in December... The Restaurant was good and clean. The prices of the Restaurant were not cheap but I wouldn't consider them expensive either..…
