Great location in the heart of the Romantic district with many great restaurants. Nice staff and vibe to the hotel. Enjoyed the roof top patio/pool and the use of the sister property is a nice bonus for beach access. The rooms are small but clean and Would have liked a balcony.

Lovely old hotel in the heart of old town.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, old mexico ambiance
Classic old Mexico with a centre courtyard open to the air, and a huge tree growing there. A very nice roof-top pool and lounge area. Lots of carved wood and tile. The staff are lovely, the maids are even dressed in traditional colours. Unfortunately, we did not get the room we had booked - one much smaller, with a tiny bathroom. But it was just for one night and the ambiance is wonderful. Close to many, many restaurants and cantinas, and the start of the Malecon. On a quiet, dead-end side street, it is not noisy at all. Would definitely go back for a longer stay and also recommend it.

2017 November Trip

Pros: adults only hotel, and no kids! and definitely the roof top pool
Cons: I don't think it needs much improvement...it's definitely a romantic hotel and extremely cozy (meaning small)...
Location: It's in a great central location. Many great restaurants, bars, gift shops, and site seeing. The beach is literally about 500 steps .
The room was very small, approximately a 12'x12' about 4m x 4m.....if you go with a corner unit you might get more room, or a room with balcony might give the appearance of a bigger room. I felt a little claustrophobic but luckily my wife gave me piece of mind when she said we won't be spending a lot of time in the room, that it would only be used to sleep. Other then that, the hotel was very cozy and romantic. I did like the fact that it was an adult only hotel...no kids!...and a roof top pool overlooking the city.

Wonderful Boutique Hotel!

Pros: The internet access, tv reception, lovely swimming pool on the roof all made for a pleasant stay
Cons: We would have liked it if there were drinks served poolside, or in the small patio on the roof---but other than that, we were totally satisfied.
Location: The location is very central to the Malecon (beachside walkway) and dozens of great restaurants.
My wife and I have stayed at the Los Arcos Suites, but this was the first time we stayed in its sister hotel, Casa Susana. It was one of the most restful and comfortable vacations we have had in more than 50 years of travelling. The room was kept spotless by the efficient maids, who even washed the dishes for our kitchenette. Bonifacio, the extremely gracious and hospitable supervisor of both the Suites and Casa Susana, was always available for information, and made sure that the guests were happy.

Would go back

Pros: The warmth and charm as well as the customer service provided by all of the staff.
Cons: We were satisfied with everything but having a double room when we paid for a King
Location: The streets are busy with shops, places to eat,people watching. Great cultural immersion. Eighty percent Americans and Canadians. Very Safe.
The hotel is very charming and situated right in the heart of things. It is very clean and well maintained. The staff and the service is top notch. We were brought to our room and found that the air conditioner did not work nor did the safe. We mentioned it to the front desk and they immediately moved us to another room. The unfortunate thing was that we had reserved a room with a King bed and we were given a room with 2 double beds,for a week. Because we were staying a week they said they did not a have a room that size for a week.

Pros: Location. Cleanliness. Staff. You have access to amenities at Playa Los Arcos (Beach chairs and umbrellas), and Los Arcos Suites (pool). All adult
Cons: Reservation system and honoring requests and having rooms available.
Have been staying here many years. Great tourist class hotel. All adult. Clean. Nice staff. Beware (1) Current construction of new project right next door makes it noisy at the pool and in your room depending on room location; and, (2) Make sure you confirm your reservation before arrival with the hotel directly (get their name). I experienced last year and talked to several people this year, who arrived and found the hotel did not have their reservation or had no rooms. This could be especially troubling in peak season.

Nice calm place in a vibrant neighborhood.

Pros: Great location ... one short block off busy street, two short blocks from the sand. Small pool but good for cooling & reading.
Cons: Refrigerator in room would be great improvement.
Location: Many really good and friendly restaurants. Shopping, massage, parasail & bouncing boat rides. Beach is nice sand but turns to rocks in the surf.
Nice beach with many good restaurants - try Freddy's Toucan for breakfast and Margraritagrill for lunch or dinner. Many of the oceanside restaurants are good and we found some good luck with some of the masseusses. Pretty muggy in October but efficient a/c in room.
