Amaca Hotel

Amaca Hotel Rating: 3.5 Pearls

A boutique, adults-only option in the gay Olas Altas neighborhood, the Amaca Hotel is decorated in traditional Mexican style with bright white walls, peeping palm fronds, and tile floors. The outstanding feature here is a rooftop lounge and small pool area with sweeping views of Banderas Bay below. While the 22-rooms offer hammocks, balconies, and walk-in showers, some guests complain about a lack of free Wi-Fi and the absence of bathroom doors.
Casa Cupula

Casa Cupula Rating: 3.5 Pearls

This destination for gay travelers is an eclectic, amusing, and comfortable little charmer. With just 21 rooms built into four adjoining houses on a steep, winding street just south of Old Town, Cupula is unique among Puerto Vallarta properties -- an eccentric yet comfortable collection of individual parts that add up to a totally inviting whole. Throw in great views, two sexy pools, a popular restaurant, in-room spa treatments, and a modern well-lit fitness center, and you have a complete adults-only package that is hard to beat.
Casa Anita and Corona Del Mar

Casa Anita and Corona Del Mar Rating: 3.0 Pearls

This ruggedly charming boutique hotel offers sweeping views of Puerto Vallarta and Banderas Bay, and the enticements of Old Town Puerto Vallarta are close at hand. Rugged is meant literally here: With two multistoried buildings climbing a steep hillside, labyrinthine stairways, and no elevators, it's a bit of work getting around -- especially if you add in the hike up from the beach. Ultimately, the place seduces with space. The 28 suites are generously scaled, with large decks, and the wonderful views place the city in the foreground against a background of sea and sky.
Playa Los Arcos Hotel Beach Resort & Spa

Playa Los Arcos Hotel Beach Resort & Spa Rating: 3.0 Pearls

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. The mid-range boutique style looks like a throwback to another time and emits a true Mexican personality. But many rooms in this mid-range hotel are worn, and on the small side. It's a relatively small property, and perhaps a little short on amenities, but for those who want an authentic Mexican urban resort experience, this is great choice.
Vallarta Shores

Vallarta Shores Rating: 3.0 Pearls

This distinctive three-story property consists of eight unique, spacious residential-style condos, plus two rooftop penthouses located right on the beach on the south side of Puerto Vallarta’s Old Town. Playa Los Muertos, Puerto Vallarta’s only in-town beach, is the highlight here. Guests looking for a homey experience -- complete will fully stocked kitchens, large living rooms and bedrooms, a nice dining area, and spacious ocean-view patios -- will be pleased with budget-friendly Vallarta Shores. Plus, it's a short walk to Old Town Puerto Vallarta, where countless dining, shopping, and nightlife options await. But there aren't many property amenities -- just a small public pool (unless you upgrade to one of the penthouses, each of which comes complete with a private pool overlooking the beach).
