The architecture and the decor of this place transports you to a different time and place. My amazement and delight grew with every step I took as I entered the place for the first time, and then, over the next 7 days, as I continued to explore it and discover new joys. It's equally suitable for a honeymoon, a solo trip, and a family vacation - a great primer for the kids on various architectural styles, decor elements, eclectic approach, use of color, mixing old and new with great taste. And read to them the tales from 1001 Nights while you are there, for an unforgettable childhood experience. Turned me into a wide-eyed kid, too. Stayed 4 nights in Scarlet room and 3 in Green room. Scarlet has a large accordion door to the private balcony, if you push it to the side, the whole room becomes one huge balcony, overlooking the river. Green has direct access to outdoor pool and bar. Plenty of beautiful large windows in every suite. As other reviews noted, service and amenities are excellent. Location: PV Old Town, 4 blocks to the beach and the Malecon, endless choices for food and entertainment within steps. If driving or taking a taxi, get to the intersection of Jacarandas & Aquiles Serdan. (Make sure you give this direction to your driver, they don't know about this place as it is new). From there, it's a few steps to the unpaved Rivera del Rio where the #106 is located. It stands directly on the shore of Rio Cuale, with live iguanas sitting in the trees. Drinking water: I started with a few sips and progressed to several bottles a day directly from the tap, with absolutely no stomach events. Safety: as single female, had no problems walking to-from the hotel at night.

Prior to this trip I had never visited Mexico, nor had any desire to. I heard about this new place from a friend who said that I needed to check it out... I flew there on a Friday to spend the weekend, and ended up leaving on a Tuesday... it was MUCH too soon to leave! The hotel was amazing, on a tour of it, each room proved to be unique and the variety suited many different needs. Each room was beautiful, and the setup of the property was unique and fun. The location in Old Vallarta is short walking distance from gorgeous beaches, and many great restaurants and bars. You are able to escape the resort atmosphere and feel like you are tucked away in this little gem with the locals. The staff were excellent, great breakfast EVERY morning by Chayo, which they will also deliver to your room if you desire. And Monica, the staff masseuse, is extremely talented and highly recommended. In my opinion, this is the ONLY place to stay in Vallarta, I will be going back very soon!

The beds and lines were the most comfortable beds I have ever had at a hotel and wait till you see the mother of pearl hot tub. The staff was amazing and so accomdating to all my needs. Never would I have guessed there was a property like this in Mexico.. it is a piece of ART!
