A little gem in the heart of Puerto Vallarta's Old TownI'm a little surprised to see anything but praise offered for this adorable guest house, but I suppose there are people in this world who find little joy in life. My experience of 567 is one of complete comfort in a colourful, friendly atmosphere, with wonderful hosts. The beautiful common areas (including the roof top pool) give one the sensation of stepping back in time, to a gentler, warmer era. The rooms continue this theme. Comfy and quaint, you'll feel right at home in one of the vibrantly decorated guest rooms. The area 567 is situation in, with its proximity to the local market, could not be more pleasant, or safe. In fact, anyone who feels unsafe in Puerto Vallarta, would probably not feel safe anywhere. Having spent a great deal of time in the city, I've found it to be safer than even my home town, in Chilliwack, BC, Canada (which is about 1/4 the population). As with any other place, keeping one's wits about you is number one. If you can't do that, well, you probably should stay home with the doors and windows closed and locked and a gun on your lap! As for me, I loved my stay at the 567 and very much enjoyed being in a neighbourhood that was so diverse. Right in the heart of the gayest part of town, there's nothing but fun to be had, without having the noise of bars and nightclubs right at your door. Your neighbours are Canadians, Americans and (of course) Mexicans! This part of town is funky, Bohemian and so authentically Mexican, you'll wonder why you didn't stay in Old Town before. You'll find this property very peaceful and very pleasant indeed. As to cleanliness, 567 is nothing short of impeccable. Frankly, anyone who would say it isn't may see many things that aren't actually there, but who am I to speculate? I would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Puerto Vallarta. It's not an all-inclusive, but that's why I like it and why so many others do, also. It's not for people who aren't interested in experiencing the life of the people here and seeing something besides the inside of an all-in. Those guys can stay in Nuevo. This is for people who actually enjoy travel, new experiences and encountering the people who live here at times other than when they're serving them a meal or a drink. Without naming names, perhaps in our negative friend's next incarnation he'll be offered some solace from the apparent torment of the current one. Suffice to say I not only disagree, but I rather suspect the reviewer of some less than noble motives. At any rate, come see for yourselves. This place is well worth a visit and it will keep you coming back, again and again, just as others here have said.
