Oyster Hotel Review
Great Mexican hospitality in a charming setting
This unique little hotel has the flavor of a 19th century Spanish hacienda. Wrought iron finishes and arches abound, with stone sculptures at every corner (including at the pool). This is old-school Vallarta, built before the hotel scene hiked north, and it remains as charming now as it was in the good old days. As charming as that sounds (and is), don't mistake charming for quiet. There is a lively scene here, with late-night entertainment and partying going on all around.
Right in the heart of Old Town, on a lively (and busy) stretch of beach
The hotel fronts a nice stretch of sand on the area's main beach, with a beachfront boardwalk and many bars and restaurants all in a row. It's also the beach area with Mexico’s most concentrated gay scene. People come to Old Town not to get away from it all but to get into it all -- a lively beach scene, a lively art scene, restaurants, clubs, galleries, bars.
- 20-minute drive to airport
- 10-minute walk to downtown
- 15-minute drive to golf courses
Basic rooms are lacking modern amentities -- and those with street views are noisy.
The five-story U-shaped hotel houses 169 guest rooms of three varieties: Standard, Superior (Ocean View or Ocean Front), Junior Suite, and Master Suite. New furniture was installed a couple of years ago, with local artisans from Guanajuato and Michoacan brought in to create the pieces. But the rooms still look a bit worn overall. The decor is pretty basic -- white and cream with hints of dark wood. Not much in the way of furniture, just a bed (or two), a desk with TV on top, and that's about it. Every room does have a private balcony though. Conversion to flat screen TVs is ongoing, but Wi-Fi is now accessible in rooms (as well as in the public areas).
- Average size rooms, though some look a little worn
- Some rooms still have tube TVs
- No Wi-Fi access yet
