The 11 Best Kid-Friendly Hotels in Puerto Vallarta

Los Arcos Suites Hotel – Central PV

Great central location with dozens of restaurants nearby. Suites are large and easily sleep a family of 4 – but there is not a separate bedroom. There’s a small pool and you can also use the facilities at the sister hotel situated on the beach with 3 connected pools and fitness gym. Hotel phone: +52 322-226-7100

Hotel Posada de Roger – Central PV

A great mid-range choice for families on a budget. 3 blocks from the beach, it has a small pool and is attached to a very kid friendly restaurant. The triple rooms need to be booked well in advance for high season. Hotel phone: +52 322-222-0639

Sheraton Buganvilias Resort – Zona Hotelera

The closest resort to downtown Puerto Vallarta and a 10 to 15 minute walk to the shops and restaurants along the malecon. The beach is rocky but the pool is great. This is not our favorite hotel in PV but great online deals often make it a good compromise especially given its location. Hotel phone: 01-800-326-4600

Westin Resort & Spa – Marina Vallarta

A great beach, super-friendly service, a kids club, and a fantastic pool make the Westin a top choice for families. 2 restaurants, beach bar, golf privileges at Marina Vallarta Golf Club, state-of-the-art health club, sauna, and steam room, lighted grass tennis courts. There’s an all-inclusive option but personally I would not recommend it as half the fun of Puerto Vallarta is eating out. Hotel phone: +52 322 226-1100

Four Seasons – Punta de Mita

A luxury hotel of the highest standards that is still very kid-friendly. One-bedroom suites are wonderful and perfect for families. There are also huge 4 and 5 bedroom villas that will sleep from 8 to 12 people. The hotel is located 45 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta. 3 restaurants; beachfront bar; horseback riding; children’s programs; cooking classes, Spanish classes, dance classes; fitness center; yoga; Jacuzzi; oceanfront pool; lazy river kids’ pool; spa; tennis center w/10 courts of various surfaces; various watersports. Hotel phone: +52 329 291-6000

Aventura Pacifico – Bucerias

Great hotel in the laid-back town of Bucerias, 40 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta. All suites have kitchens – some are one-bedroom, some two-bedroom. Medium sized pool with lots of sun and a few deck chairs. No restaurant but 2 blocks to the beach and a short walk to many places to eat. Bucerias is a friendly town with a nice beach, highly recommended if you want a quiet stay away from the crowds of PV. Hotel phone: 52 329 298-2797

Hotel Vogue – Sayulita

Great place with super friendly owners. 1 and 2 bedroom apartments with small kitchens. Steps from the lively and very fun town square. 2 blocks from a beautiful beach that is great for learning to surf (and take surf lesson). Sayulita is a wonderful town with dozens of great restaurants in a compact and walkable center. It’s a place that once you arrive you spend the rest of your visit figuring out how to never leave. Hotel phone: 329-29-13111

Bungalows Jaqueline – Sayulita

Just around the corner from Hotel Vogue the Jacqueline has a similar feel. The rooms are perhaps a little smaller but the hotel has a small swimming pool that the Vogue doesn’t. You can’t lose with either hotel. Hotel phone: 329-29-13027

Casa Iguana All Suites Hotel – Mismaloya

Wonderful budget hotel with a great pool. In-suite kitchens are very basic but useful for breakfast, lunch, or snacks. It’s a 5 minute walk to a small charming beach. Puerto Vallarta is 15 minutes away by bus (that comes by every 10 minutes). The hotel restaurant is surprisingly good and there’s a great fish taco restaurant 2 minutes away (walk in the opposite direction of the beach). Hotel phone: +52 322-228-0186

Casas Garcia – Yelapa

Situated right on the beach this is an open-air style apartment (and probably my favorite hotel in the PV area). There are 2 and 3 bed layouts that sleep 4 to 6. Some bedrooms are walled-off from the rest of the apartment but not completely enclosed. The waves slamming on the beach can be loud at night but it’s something I’m happy to contend with. Full kitchens are great for cooking. Hotel phone: +52 322-209-5149
