Stayed here again for a week in early December. It was much the same as 4 years ago. I asked for a river side room but they had none available till the next day so they game me 108 again facing the west & flea market. This made for street noise early in the mornings and late at night. I...

Where do I even begin?! Avoid this hotel at ALL costs. I do not like writing extremely negative reviews I will always aim to give a very balanced account of my experience and highlight areas where I think a hotel has excelled, however it's just not possible here. Most of the issues I have with this establishment are with the...

No good english, no smile, and surprisingly they upgrade the price 3 times from the price they put in hostelworld.com The pool is too small, guess only for kids. Too many mosquitos in the night And the elevator is very small and old,,, just pray that you will luckily survive from it.

While Hotel Encino is located in a wonderful part of PV, there are a few things to know about this hotel that you should keep in mind when considering booking. If you are someone who likes fancy- or at least more than just a bed and a TV- this hotel is not for you. It is a little older and...

Had a very comfortable stay, staff very friendly and clean rooms. Rooftop pool was lovely and location for the bonita part of Puerto Vallarta is ideal. Only thing was the pool could do with lights, apart from that everything was what I wanted and expected. Will stay again

Very Unfriendly Staff. All male night time Staff, and they use the Lobby Furniture to sleep. 4 sofas, and all were occupied by young male adults. Also, they turn out the Lobby lights at night, so it's very intimidating, and uncomfortable to go to the Lobby late at night, or early morning to use the Internet, which you have to...

I love the location of this Hotel, right across the street from the flea market. On the corner there is a small restaurant connected to the flea market. There food is Awesome, I ate there at least 10 times. The Hotel is old, I think one of the oldest in PV. My room had one bed with a little balcony...

The hotel itself is very simple and offers little amenities. We were fine with it because all we wanted was a cheap place to stay. We barely stay in the hotel anyway, PV is so pretty if you stay in the hotel you are loosing out. The location is great, near public transportation and an awesome mecardo with great food....
