Fodor's Review

Studios here have functional kitchenettes, basic cookware, and somewhat thin mattresses on wood-frame beds. Each has a small tiled tub as well as a shower. The real pluses of this plain-Jane hotel are the balconies with spectacular beach views and the location above rocky, picturesque Conchas Chinas Beach. Guests love the sound of the crashing waves at night, and most can ignore the tired furnishings because of the super location and the popular restaurant overlooking

the beach below. It's about a 25-minute walk from downtown Puerto Vallarta along the sand. Lots of stairs make it a poor choice for people with mobility problems.
