This hotel was gorgeous, quirky, old hollywood - I LOVED everything about this hotel and wish we had been able to stay longer. The staff were so lovely, breakfast delicious, the balconies everywhere delightful. I could not say enough good things about this place. I really do love all the colour, artistic touches etc. When you travel a lot sometimes places can start feeling the same but this hotel was very unique and will be one that stands out in my mind as a result.

The staff was excellent- personable & helpful! The breakfasts were very good. It was a nice walk along the river to the hanging bridge over to the island and to the downtown square & Malecon. Some of the residential area in the vicinity wasn’t the greatest.

Marina plus the other staff of Rivera del Rio Hotel are so welcoming. The atmosphere is amazing with colourful art and Antiques throughout. They have everything you can ask for including a stocked Bar on an honour system. I loved the different levels of this unique historic Mexican building. There are a variety of stairs including spiral metal. If you aren't able to climb, there are also rooms off of the main level. I was impressed with the selection on their menu for Breakfast. Really delicious. We got to sit each morning with a different view of their Grand room or river. We enjoyed walking to the Old Downtown and beaches every day. I am not a B&B person but would definitely come back here in a heart beat. You have to experience Rivera del Rio Boutique on your next trip to Puerto Vallarta.

This is a hidden gem! It has a great location, walking distance to everything you need. Safe residential area. Utterly charming boutique style rooms. The service is outstanding each staff member was wonderful, helpful and super friendly. Rooms are completely unique with funky decor. Clean and with all amenities you require. Pool, hot tub and outside deck areas are also laid out in a unusual way with access to honour bar, towels etc. If you are physically challenged not a good choice due to winding stairs throughout property. Pool and hot tub could use a little work and were a tad cool. Overall tho this is the spot for travelers seeking a warm welcome into an unusual little bohemian hotel. Cannot beat the staff, value (delish breakfast included) and accommodations.

Unique and charming boutique hotel
We loved everything about this small hotel from the wildly interesting decor to the delicious breakfast to the roof top pool and jacuzzi to the super friendly and helpful staff. Location was great, so quiet yet close to everything you need. This will be our first choice for PV hotels from now on!

This is a lovely, slightly funky hotel. It's situated in a very interesting, non-touristy area of town, but within easy walking distance of many things that tourists would want, and overlooking beautiful greenery along the small river Cuale. The staff that we dealt with were super, especially Grant and Melina, who really go out of their way to make sure you have all the information you could need and couldn't be more helpful. Our room, the Carlotta Suite, was quite comfortable and somewhat intriguing, with steps up and down when you least expected them, some unusual pieces of furniture and art, and a tiny patio with an unexpected hidden fountain (I could hear water running but it was several days before I discovered the fountain). The kitchen was new, clean and had good appliances. The upkeep of the rooms could have been better: there were chips of paint missing from the white-painted floor in the bedroom that made it look dirty, the sheets were quite worn (one of the sheets had an inch-long hole in it that should have been picked up by the staff as it was in the part that was turned back over the blanket), and when we arrived we noticed debris on the floor that should have been cleaned. There were two options to get to the room - one (the easy way) involved going outside the hotel, around the corner, down the street and around another corner; the other involved going up and down a variety of staircases some of which were quite challenging. Part of the adventure.

A fun funky little hotel with tons of character. We stayed in the Green room which had access directly to the pool area which was so handy. The hotel is in need of a reno but despite that it is kept very clean. The breakfasts were delicious and the staff was amazing.

This place is very fun for the eyes! The lobby is very open and the decor is unique! The friendly staff will go over everything you need and they welcome you warmly. Once you’re in your room, you are treated nicely by a comfy bed and furnishings that have lots of character! Their hot breakfasts are wonderful, made to order and tasty! No complaints, great job guys!
