This is a very basic hotel. This is reflected int he pricing which is a little lower than others comparable.
The good stuff: Nice lobby, very nice and helpful staff, coffee available all day, free pool table to use in lobby. Great location, on the bus route to the Malecon and other areas, very easy to get around.
No great beaches nearby, but if you don't mind crowds and cigarette butts in the sand, the beach opposite, behind the hotels, was okay and walking distance at around 7 mins to get over the road and down the walkways.
There is Soriana close by, about ten mins walk. An Oxxo two mins walk on the corner, and abank with good atm fees on the corner also.
Cleaning staff and room service staff were very nice and speak a little english.

The not-so-great:
Rooms at the front of the house are VERY very noisy, as they are over the main road. I couldn't sleep at all until 1 or 2 am once the clang or cars and stereos died down. That was the worst for me.
The room wasn't clean, there were black hairs all over the bathroom.
NO electric kettle in room, which was unfortunate, no microwave or coffee machine, but a good refrigerator.
The pool was dirty, had some kind of pink scum in, cloudy and cigarette butts all over the pool area on the ground. Yukky.
The hot coffee was good but they don't offer hot water to make tea, despite having TEA BAGS out. I asked about hot water, you can get the kitchen staff to microwave you some in a polystyrene cup. Hmm.

Overall, i would say if you are happy to pay budget prices and get budget, you cant go wrong. Just beware the dirty pool and rooms.

We stayed at the Suites del Sol in Jan/03 for two weeks & had a great time. I too was concerned because this hotel was listed as a 2* only in the travel brochure. If you looking for a place to kick back & relax, this is it.The food menu didn't really have alot of choice, but with so many restaurants out there, it didn't really matter. This hotel has your typical Mexican feel!! The staff were all very nice & couldn't do enough for you. If you enjoy walking like we do, than you are central to everything. We walked almost every other day to El Centro.We have stayed at numerous 4 & 5 star resorts in Mexico over the many years of going down there, & I must say that we had the most fun at this resort!We have already decided that we will be going back again in Jan/04 for another 2 weeks.

My husband and I stayed at the hotel suites del sol in february 2004 for 2 weeks, we had a real great time, everyone was very friendly and helpful. We liked the close proximity to downtown P.V. It all depends what are you looking for in a vacation. Yes, the pool is very small,and the jacuzzi doesn't work, but other than that we had great service and the hotel is small enough so you can meet people. I wouldn't recommend this hotel for a family with young children, there isn,t that much to do for children, but if you are in the middle age group like we are, it is a great place and on top of it very reasonable, so even all the meals are included, you can afford to try some other restaurants and not feel guilty about spending extra money. Anyway, we are going to book another 2 weeks at this hotel for 2005 and going to enjoy every minute of it.

I stayed at this 87 room hotel from March 27, till April 10, 2004. It is 1 block from the beach. Rooms are very clean and spacious with balconies. Service is superb, so is the food at their restaurant. Management and the staff are very polite and helpfull. The hotel has a quiet home atmosphere, adorned wit a lot of plants and flowers. The room prices are quite reasonable. Next time I go to Puerto Vallarta, I will definitely stay there.If anyone would like to take a look at their site, it is-----------------------------Jadranka Smeh, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

I booked through expedia, but they said they had no reservation. I had to pay again to get a terrible room. The next day I was in the lobby phoning expedia and two more couples came in...and their reservations were lost also. More funny business at front desk while I phoned expedia again. Expedia told me they phoned front desk and explained my reservation and they hung up on expedia.

By a small error on my behalf i booked at this hotel. It was an all inclusive. This was excellent value for the money. the food was good, the staff very friendly and the hotel decor was mexican. The rooms were clean and made every day.
Things to remember
1/ this is not on the beach
2/ it is on a busy street so if your a light sleeper you may not rest
3/ no wild party's it is quiet around the pool
4/ the bar closes at 10:30pm

After the bar closes there is a great Canadian sports bar across the road called Casa Blakes. Lots of TV sports great food and great company. Sue and Mike are great hosts and love to meet canadians.
Puerto Vallarta you got two thumbs up

My husband and I just returned from 7 days/6 nights in beautiful Puerto Vallarta. I had gone once before about 5 years ago, and stayed at Suites Del Sol then, and I had such a lovely time, we decided to give it another go.
My husband wasn't too impressed with the looks of the place when we pulled up in the cab, but I assured him he wouldn't be sorry. The lobby is really neat, a very authentic Mexican hotel. The bellman was wonderful. We were checked in with no problems -- we booked through Vallarta.com and got the most basic room for about $30 USD a night. The fantastic thing was we got upgraded. The many of the rooms were being repainted, so they moved us to a large suite at the end of the corridor. The corridor is open air and has bottles of purified water for you to fill up water jugs. Oh and we were never bothered once by the workers, neither by noise or given any problems. Everyone was nice and said Hola to us :) Oh and our room had two balconies and ceiling fans in both rooms and an AC in the bedroom. The temperature was great. We kept the balcony doors open all night, even with us being on the street side. I didn't find it too loud at all, actually kind of nice to have a totally different experience from sleeping at home!
The pool was small but perfect for us, lots of shade and sun, plenty of lounge chairs and tables. If you prefer the beach, go across the street and access the beach via the Villa Vallartas complex. If you head back by the tennis club, you can access the beach from there. There are no restaurants or bars by this side. There is a roped off area for people who live at the condos, but otherwise you can take your beach towels down and chill out. There aren't many vendors down this way too. Pick up some sandwiches at one of the great cafes in the Villa complex and some cervesas from the OXXO (ubiquitous convenience store). If you want a livlier beach, head down to the old town. There are plenty of bars/restaurants that are on the beach and are good prices. The best ones are further down the Malecon, pretty much on the far side. It takes maybe 10-15 minutes by bus - at the most. Worth the ride and I bet you will strike up a fun conversation on the bus.
The restaurant inside the hotel has a great breakfast, we didn't try their dinner. Two awesome restaurants flank the hotel on both sides, taquerias where we got terrific meals for under $15 for both of us WITH beer. Can't beat that!! Also, the restaurant is no longer located by the pool. It is on the street. You can get beers for the pool for about $1 each, or you can go to the Mega Supermercado (5 min walk towards town) or the OXXO (less than 1 minute towards town). The restaurant is now open until about 10pm. We even got room service from the one night and was under $10 USD.
The hotel is catty-corner to the bus stop that takes people downtown to the Centro. It is a lot easier to cross the street than people here are letting on. There are a few islands across the several lane road, just cross each island as you can and wait. It is best to follow someone the first or second times so you can get the hang of it. Seriously though, I think it is harder to cross the street in Philadelphia. Plus the drivers WILL slow down for you, esp if you are a woman. The buses are about 50 cents/person each way, the buses are older and the shocks are pretty much shot on all the buses, but seriously, what do you expect for 50 cents. The buses come every 2 minutes or so, they are clean, and they are efficient. I honestly do not think you need a rental car if you stay at the Suites. I mean, unless you plan on taking a lot of side excursions, but even then it might be cheaper to get a cab. You can get cabs to quieter beaches and outlaying towns for under 200 pesos ($16 USD). The cab drivers let you practice your Spanish, offer great advice, and were almost always happy to talk with us.
The only problems we had with the hotel were as follows: we "lost" a pool towel - honestly, I am pretty sure I checked out two, returned one after the pool one day, and tried to return the other the next day. I should have made sure that we got the receipt re-done to say we only had one out when we returned the other, but I didn't. We ended up having to pay 300 pesos, which sucked, but whatever. The receptionist was really freaking pissed at me which I find odd. It's just a towel and I paid for it. And yes, the rooms aren't in top shape. The mattresses were pretty uncomfortable, but I was used to it by the 3rd day. Some stretches when I got up took care of it. The rooms were not in top shape for sure, but this is Mexico. They were CLEAN which is what matters the most to me. If you want something fancier, pay the money for one of those all inclusives, even though I have read enough reviews about them to know they aren't always perfect.
If you want a real experience where you meet people, get a great deal, enjoy the true Mexico, then stay at Suites Del Sol. Check out the surrounding stores and restaurants. Don't be afraid of the bus or eating at a place with a Spanish menu. Don't hit up Senor Frogs and those other traps on the Malecon. Go to Cancun for that. Enjoy the charm of PV. :)

I stayed at this hotel form Dec 26, 2010 to Jan 2,2011. And when I booked the hotel they told us that it was located close to beach and it is but not a good beach, they also told us that is very close to downtown (malecon) but is NOT, is like 30 min walk from the hotel to the beginning of the malecon which was too far for me. At the end we end up getting a car rental that it worked perfectly for us, because we end up going to some nice beaches (close distance by car) and had a lot of fun. There were two good restaurants near by OCHO TOSTADAS (two blocks from the hotel) and you can get directions on the lobby of the hotel and one TACO stand located outside the hotel which was delicious its called “EL TIZOK”. Other than that you have to go to the malecon or downtown area to get the good stuff.I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL ONLY OF YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE A RENTAL CAR. Other than that stay close to downtown. Another think I didn’t like was the attitude of the front desk people both ladies from both shifts, you will now what I am talking about as soon as you get to the hotel on the other side, the bellman its one of the nicest person I ever meet.



Hope my review is useful

I just got back from P.V and stayed at the Suites Del Sol. It was a very relaxing trip. The resort is small and private. The staff was very friendly and would bend over backwards for you to enjoy your stay. It is very Mexican and the food was incredible. The location was close to everything and the beach is just across the street. I have nothing bad to say about this place. If you are looking for a low key place to stay with great food this is the place to be. I highly recommend Suites Del sol.
