The location is good. I would not really recommend the hotel restaurant, but lots of good options within walking distance. The WiFi was a disaster.

Location is probably the only good feature of this hotel . Not much of a resort either . Rooms are more Motel like . It is however very family' friendly for being in “romantic zone” I most likely will not stay here again . Food in the resort not too good but you do have tons of options around to go eat

The location is the best. Friendly staff.

Dirty bathrooms, Not enough outlets Beds to hard

This property was great. Friendly staff (happy to meet in the middle with the english\spanish language barrier). The food gets you through the day with 3 different places to eat. The resort is perfectly located with instant access to the beach and to the city. The only complaint is that there are too many screaming kids all over, BUT if you have a family, again this is a GREAT location. I would stay again.

This hotel was full of locals and their families. It’s a very old facility and the food tasted like reheated frozen food. WiFi didn’t work for us and we were on the 3rd floor. It’s a very old hotel, and can hear everything around you. It has a beautiful view of the ocean. But you’re constantly hassled by street vendors who try and sell you things while you eat at the restaurant downstairs. And instead of enjoying the view, you’re constantly being bothered by homeless people begging for money. It’s overall a 1 star rating, if you’re struggling and desperate for a place to stay this hotel is your spot. I fully regret my stay here, and wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. If you’re really looking for a decent spot, go towards the marina!

Thé staff was very helpful

Black mold in the room and bathroom. A/C was so noisy and didn't work properly, it's stay humid in the room. I checked out early.

The room wasn't the best but it was clean. not to much space. Perfect location, I really love this hotel food was good.

We stayed four days in Los Arcos, to make it easier to get to the airport and get the necessary Covid tests for our return to the US. Although the room did not have a view, it was nice and clean (being one of the remodeled rooms). The staff is really friendly and helpful when needed. The buffet and drinks included in the all-inclusive is what you would expect, good but not exceptional. As part of the all-inclusive, you get one special meal, which was really good though. They did make a good effort to keep the beachfront clean throughout our stay and the special events every evening were entertaining. I only have one small complaint, and this is due to my height, the toilet area of the bathroom was very, very small (think airplane size).

Great property and location. Disappointing staff and deceptive policies. Not customer service friendly and rather aggressive in enforcing their policies which vary by each person. I had also reserved for 2 guests in a room with two beds. However my friend would be arriving a day later. They first tried to tell me I only had one person on the reservation. I showed my orbitz paperwork to prove it and they still said it was wrong on both the reservation and confirmation email and that since he would be arriving a day later, there would be an extra charge. I was also given two towel cards that I did not want and told if I loose them I’d be charged $45 per card as they are a value of a towel $30 and the card fee of $15. I said I did not want the cards as I’ve brought my own beach towel. I was told I had to take them so I just put them in the safe. Friends had hung suits/towel on their balcony to dry and they were confiscated by security. Also they will not allow any guests to enter the property. Had friends coming to meet us for dinner and it was a problem even for them to sit in the lobby. The property itself is nice. Rooms are clean however mine was very old and tight while my friends had a super new remodeled room for less. It can be loud between the pool and the Main Street it’s located on. Could not get any WiFi at all even though it’s listed as an amenity. Great location on the beach, by the pier and on the main restaurant streets in zona romantica. So nice for those parts.

Great location. Good value.

Honestly nothing was unique about this property. Yes we had a partial ocean view! However the other partial view was the back alley and some type of flea market..!! In addition The hotel was overly crowded, and exceptionally Expensive for what they offer. We had to leave the property on the 2nd day we were there, and had to make a emergency move to nuevo vallarta. Where for about the same price we got way more including all meals, and better Treatment and service. Plus very little beach vendors...!!! Overall it was a nightmare staying at los Arcos in vallarta.

I love the location, the pool, beach & the staff - been going there for over 20 yrs - love it

Very central to all the restaurants and shops. Some of the rooms have balconies which we loved. We would most definitely stay again.

Their "All Inclusive" is lacking! No room service is included, nor restaurant food, only the buffet is included. There is a new restaurant on the second level of their restaurant, but guess what? Not included with All Inclusive. Also, the pool bar is the only place you can get free drinks, and that closes at 10:30pm. This is the worst All Inclusive I've ever stayed at, and although the price is reasonable, I will never go back. The staff is very friendly tho, as are anywhere in Mexico from my experience.

I loved staying here. Lots of things to do in waking distance. Staff was very friendly and was able to help me out a few times when I needed help. I had lots of luggage and they helped me carry it to the room and back down and got a taxi for me when it was time to go. I loved the pool perfect for little kids or older. I would definitely stay again. I didn’t do all inclusive because I like to see the city. No cons for me only pros. Oxxo store that is open 24hrs on the corner. Right on the beach, Next to Panchos tacos, and right off the malecon.
