Nice Mexican tourist class hotel. Location is aces. The rooms are basic but functional. PV is all about the beach, restaurants, bars. This place is in the center. Pool is nice. If you want luxury, pay a lot more somewhere else.

Encino staff was by far friendly & made our stay a breeze. We enjoyed the room for relaxing or napping after a long day out & before stepping out night. Enjoyed the roof top restaurant. The food & drinks are great. The hotel is in the heart of down town & easy access to the night life restaurants, bars, Malecon, shopping and church.

I've been going to Puerto Vallarta for 16 years. My husband and I have stayed at Encino for the last 10 years. The prices are going up but I am not seeing much improvements. The bath towels are stained and very old. Our room had a new window and I think new mattresses. They never give wash clothes or a hand towel. We also were given a 2 twin bed room. I asked for a room with one bed and they said they were full. However my girlfriend came a couple days later and recieved a one bed room. No loyalty at all for being a long term customer. We go every December and March for the last 8 years. I would only stay there if their prices reflect what you get. It is a good location, and the help is friendly.

Older hotel, great reception staff, excellent loca
Noisy staff in the hallways before 6am and late after 11 pm. Room was small but very clean, we booked at the last minute for a weekend so not many room choices. Other rooms looked larger and more comfortable. Loved the rooftop patio and pool area. We only had drinks in the restaurant but many others had meals there. Excellent location at the malecon area, close to the pedestrian walkways, shops and the flea market.
