[TITLE] Budget Colonial Resort in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Resort Close to Downtown and Nearby Beach Activities

Playa Los Arcos offers travelers the best of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, at a budget rate. Playa Los Arcos overlooks Banderas Bay and has direct access to the beach. The resort is a five-minute walk to downtown Puerto Vallarta. In a 20-minute drive, guests have their pick of three golf courses. 

Playa Los Arcos is located in the Zona Romantica section of the city but also has family-friendly offerings. The resort has an on-site playground and a kid's pool area. For parents who want some romantic time alone, Playa Los Arcos also offers babysitting and child care services.

The Playa Los Arcos resort's location gives guests their choice of activities. Nearby offerings include kayaking, scuba diving, snorkeling, windsurfing, sailing, water skiing, surfing, boogie boarding, and hiking trails. The resort offers on-site personal motorized watercraft rentals with nearby scooter, moped, and bicycle rentals. 

Value-Added Spa Offerings and Three Pools

Playa Los Arcos has a spa with multiple treatment types available. Guests can choose from massages, aromatherapy, Shiatsu, and reflexology. The spa has a menu of body and facial treatments along with manicure and pedicure options. To enhance the romance, the spa also contains treatment rooms for couples. 

The resort boasts three interconnecting pools that flow into each other. An oceanview spa tub provides the ultimate relaxation.

Beautiful Colonial Suites With Handcrafted Wood

The Playa Los Arcos suites and rooms are unlike any other resort in Puerto Vallarta. Each room is decorated in a Mexican Colonial design with handcrafted dark wood headboards and furniture. Guests feel as if they stepped back in time with the beautiful décor and attention to detail in the rooms. 

The suites have a furnished balcony available with pool or city views, and guests can ask for a refrigerator. Beach towels are included in each room so travelers can pack a little lighter. 

The Bottom Line

Playa Los Arcos is an outstanding, affordable, all-inclusive resort option in the heart of the Zona Romantica. Even though the resort is in this "romantic district," Playa Los Arcos welcomes families with child care services and a playground. Choosing Playa Los Arcos gives travelers a budget vacation without missing out on experiencing a relaxing tropical getaway. The resort cuts the extra inclusive services, such as beach activities included at other resorts, to offer this cheaper rate and give guests an unforgettable experience.

Expert Reviews
Lonely Planet
For a large beach hotel, this place functions admirably. The recent renovations have given the property a streamlined colonial elegance.
Rough Guide
The best-equipped and most spacious of the beachfront hotels, with a lively social scene centred around the large pool and adjacent palapa restaurant.
Los Arcos benefits from a prime location: It's planted on Puerto Vallarta's main beach, Playa del Sol, and is right smack in the middle of the Romantic Zone.
