    Profile: Downtown Puerto Vallarta

    Snap a pic of Downtown Puerto Vallarta’s infamous seahorse statue before heading to the recently remodeled lighthouse on nearby Calle Matamoros where you can take panoramic photos from an observation deck. To see how Puerto Vallarta has inspired other artists, join the art walk around the many galleries in the resort's gallery zone.

    Restaurants in the area serve a variety of gourmet seafood dishes, such as seared scallops, shrimp, octopus, and mussels with tequila over risotto. End the evening with a sunset cruise aboard a catamaran.

    • 8.0.Very Good

      I had issues at check-in. For some reason, they didn't have me in their system. But they were able to rectify this, and gave me an upgraded room for the night. The staff were friendly and gave me good recommendations on where to eat and how to get around. The wifi is terrible in the rooms. I could not use it because the signal was too weak. I hope they improve this in the near future. Overal, this is a good hotel minus their wifi.

    • 4.0.Fair

      I decided to reserve this hotel for a week stay after reading the excellent reviews of it. I have no idea who wrote the reviews. I suspect that someone was hired to write fake reviews. TOTAL DISAPPOINTMENT! The hotel rating shouldn't be more than 2 stars. Everything is very old and used! After entering my apartment I made immediate decision that I cannot stay in it. I went to a 3 star hotel Tropicana where I stayed 4 years ago and was lucky to find a room there. I came back to Hotel Rio and cancelled my stay. By the way, Tropicana was much better and the prices were lower. The only advantage of Hotel Rio Malecon was that their internet connection in the room was better.

      Great location and good value

      Great location near the Malecon in downtown PV. Easy walk to restaurants, shops, bars, etc. Very clean and comfortable. Hotel restaurant is good also for breakfast or lunch. Pool is not really useable as it is more of a water feature for the restaurant than a pool. Hotel is a good value.

    • 8.0.Very Good

      Location was great for exploring that end of PV on foot. Having the kitchenette was a bonus, and a great little coffee shop Sindown, right next door❣️ Restaurant and Bar excellent with good ice, but we probably shouldn't have drank the 'purified' H20. Staff was exceptional and accommodating. Pool was basically for kids 2ft deep. in lobby w Cafe seating around, bummer. Basic for comfort and cleaning.❣️Love and Light woven through the fabric of this traditional Mexican hotel steps from Malecon and beach. So many shops and restaurants.. Happy Hour 1-7
