This accommodation looks nice in the photos, but photos of what ?

Management located 8 blocks away, they don't tell you this , so when you arrive...

First off, we needed to check in at a different hotel in a totally different part of town. We had to wait 30-45 minutes to be taken to our room, the hotel sent the poor bell boy out in the pouring rain, walking in his bare feet. 2 hours after arriving in town we finally got into our room, only...

Excellent value. The building is really a short stay apartment block as there is no reception or other hotel services except for daily maid service. Stayed in a self contained studio (small one bedroom in reality) with a kitchen for one week. There is free laundry, one full size washer and one full size drier. Roof top patio area is...

Love this place & would go back. It is charming, well cared for and very clean. Most of the time we had the whole place to ourselves. Pool was sparkling, plants lovingly maintained, the metalwork upstairs is beautiful. I loved it here, the 3 staff members are friendly and nice. Checking in at the Encino was easy, but they should...

This nice little hotel is located in the entertainment district. It is unmarked and you have to get the keys from Hotel Encino a few blocks away.

La Iguana is a very nice place like home, clean, good service, all facilities and confort. Good experience to saty in old vallarta town, everything is near, restaurants, shops, bars, malecon, and can walk safety.

As a young couple, we liked this hotel mainly because of the location (it is walking distance from the seafront and the restaurant/clubs) and also it is newly furnished (aside from the TV), with all the necessary appliances in the kitchen for a long stay.

Last January we stayed here 2 months and we very much enjoyed it. We are going back this winter for sure. We particularly appreciated Eduardo's kindness and Lupita is always smiling. Our accommodations were well appointed with everything we needed, very clean, smoke free except on the roof terrace. We highly recommend it. Antonio and Anna

“Upper floor at the back is best”
 of 5 bubbles richardn403, 4 Dec 2016 | Read review
“Rooms at the back are quieter and darker due to fewer windows. Rooms on the street side are bright but will be noisier.”
  • View of the open interior of the building, ladder to roof top patio.

“Pick up keys at Hotel Eninco, check to make sure things are working. Cheap and good location”
 of 5 bubbles RexJoe, 25 Apr 2016 | Read review
“If the room has AC, you can close the windows and block a fair bit of the disco noise, otherwise put the fan on high to create "white noise"”
 of 5 bubbles r0n69, 18 Feb 2016 | Read review
“Front rooms have balcony, if you don't like noise ask for inside rooms.”
