Positive Reviews

Well-priced for its services.

Encino's offers of clean, comfortable guest rooms near the oceanfront make it a prime choice for those looking to explore the coastal Mexican regions without spending too much on their base rental and living expenses. Encino's facilities make it an excellent budget and mid-range choice.

Unbeatable location.

Encino is centrally located for Puerto Vallarta, offering access to some of the area's best nightclubs, restaurants, and shopping outlets. It also puts you directly next to the flea market and beach areas, which makes it a fantastic choice if you're seeking a range of activities and settings in the city.

Authentic cultural elements.

Numerous aspects of Encino make you feel as though you're absorbing Mexican culture from the stay alone, including the music and food that's present throughout the premises. The staff gives you solid information about Mexican culture and travel advice, which will help you blend in better than ever.

Negative Reviews

Limited dining hours.

The rooftop restaurant at Encino isn't open long enough for those with a schedule that tends to run on the flexible side, which can make it difficult to find food at a reasonable price beyond the listed hours. There are nearby restaurants and bars, but the prices tend to be higher.

Traffic noise.

The streets surrounding Encino are filled with active drivers and road traffic late into the night, making it hard to get a decent night of rest without needing to resort to things like fans for white noise or earplugs.

Lacking in cleanliness.

The rooms and common areas of Encino are in need of a solid cleaning effort, as evidenced by the amount of stains, general dust, and broken fixtures found throughout the guest areas. There are also examples of failing plumbing which should be addressed.
