Puerto Vallarta Photo Fakeout: The tiny bathrooms they don't show you
The slideshow on the Conchas Chinas website shows lots of (unlabeled!) photos of the property. We don't blame the hotel for wanting to put its best foot forward, but it shows four bathroom photos (only one of which is shown above), so we thought at least one photo would be representative of our bathroom in our standard room. Not so. In reality, our bathroom was cramped and in disrepair: a slanted, leaky toilet; scum-covered shower doors; rusted shower drain; black splotches on the mirror; and a persistent, unpleasant smell. The larger bathrooms shown on the hotel's website do exist, but if you book a standard room like we did, be prepared for the worst, and hope for the best.Read the full Playa Conchas Chinas review.
