Affordable Hotel in the Heart of Puerto Vallarta

All-inclusive or Room-only Rates to Please Everyone

San Marino resort sits in the heart of Puerto Vallarta along the beach. Los Muertos Pier, Playa de los Muertos, and Malecon are all a short walk away. Guests can book a room-only rate or all-inclusive, depending upon their food and beverage preferences. The full-service spa is perfect for a day of pampering. Sun seekers can choose between lounging on the beach or one of the two outdoor swimming pools. The poolside bar offers a variety of tropical cocktails without having to go very far. There is also a kiddie pool for safe fun with no restrictions on splashing.

Reasonably Priced Rooms With Amazing Views

This eight-story resort has 166 rooms in its three buildings. Designated smoking areas make a more pleasant stay for smokers and non-smokers. Each guest room has a private bathroom, in-room safe, climate control with air conditioning, cable television, and daily housekeeping. Private balconies, sofa beds, and ocean views are available.

There are two San Marino restaurants onsite. The hotel staff also organizes Black Jack, Bingo, water polo, beach soccer, volleyball, and pool games. There is a relaxation pool for guests who want some quiet time to catch up on their reading.

Enjoy the Local Fare

The San Marino offers kayaking onsite. The Perfect Spa Boutique offers massages, facials, manicures, and pedicures. The multilingual staff is eager to help guests in selecting a local eatery or booking an excursion. Salud Super Food, La Palapa, and 116 Pulpito Gastro Bar are among the local restaurants that come highly recommended.

Make a point of visiting the Saturday Market Co-op during your stay. Your senses will be on overload at the sights of organic produce, fresh-baked breads, pastries, and various specialties created by local chefs. It is open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday throughout the year. Save room for Sid’s World Famous Chili. Fresh flowers, arts, and crafts are also for sale.

The Bottom Line

San Marino has it all. The all-inclusive rates are perfect for guests who choose to dine onsite and stay on a set budget. If you plan on venturing out for most of your meals and spending most evenings visiting the local martini bar or Salsa club, then the room-only rates are for you. The hotel is in the traditional Romantic Zone of Puerto Vallarta where all the popular attractions are within walking distance.
