Location was easy walk to the beach, restaurants, shopping places. Front desk person was nice.
The hotel shows a pool in the pictures, but there is no pool in the actual property, if you want to use their pool you must walk to their sister hotel Rivera Del Rio, more and less 5-7 min walk, then go up 3 flights of stairs and down 1 flight of stairs, it was a bit madness! Also, the hotel was borderline "clean", it needs a bit more deep cleaning. Maybe upgrade the decor, it was like old-flea market stuff with some modern pieces, a bit bizarre! Finally, start serving breakfast earlier than 9 am! I paid for breakfast $5 p/person, but was not able to eat breakfast because all of my tours/activities started at 9 am, I told the front desk person if someone could make breakfast earlier, but that didn't happen... so my B&B was more like a cup of coffee and some fruit.
Great river views, clean and beautiful rooms, lovely staff, very attentive and helpful. We keep coming back to this place every chance we get.
Great location along the river in what feels like a very safe, local neighborhood. Quick walks to the local markets, beaches, malecon, great street food, shopping etc. I think it might be the best location for someone who wants to see the less tourist driven areas of PV. The hotel is eclectic in a very romantic way. It feels intimate and you could easily make friends with both the staff and the other guests at the small pool and honor system bar. We would stay again in a heart beat.
