    I just spent 7 days at Blue Chairs. I visited this hotel several times but this will be my last. The hotel did not have running water 3 mornings out of 7 days until about 1pm. When I went to the front desk to ask, they explained there was a problem with a pipe being fixed and the city had turned off the water. I was informed that their general manager would contact me about compensation for this huge inconvenience, but the manager never showed up and the staff was less than welcoming after my conversation about this issue. There facilities are also in desperate need of some major upgrading. There are many other great hotels in the area. I will definitely be looking for another resort on my next trip to Vallarta.

    Great Staff, Lousy Building

    This was my third and probably my last stay at Blue Chairs. We always have some kind of nasty issue, mice chewing my backpack, water out for four hours, leaking pipes. The location is great: right on the beach in Gay Central. The staff are very friendly. The restaurant across the street is wonderful. I did get tired of people approaching me asking me if I wanted marijuana or cocaine. If you need to save money, this place will work, but it can be disappointing

    While we did not stay at the Blue Chairs Resort we came to have lunch and margaritas for 3 days of our trip at their beach club. I highly recommend it. It’s in a great part of the beach, the staff is awesome, food and margaritas are good, and you are obviously able to use the chairs and restroom on the property! Eduardo, the manager, is someone you don’t want to miss! He is so funny and helpful and will get you anything you need. The staff works together and they are all great. We mostly had Miguel and Omar who are also super sweet and helpful. If you’re in Viejo Vallarta or heading to the beach, def stop by Blue Chairs!

    Do NOT use the banking machine in the lobby

    Withdrew $5k pesos and got $4.6k. Filled a complaint with my bank and came back as rejected by the bank. Usually I do not use such "free standing" machines, but now I know better. There are many banks with banking machines not far.

    Don't waste your time or your money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Don't even bother booking this hotel for 30 minutes!!!!!!!!!!! It is a disgusting hell hole. I have stayed in hostels nicer then this dump!!!!!!!! Hotel is unsecured, rooms don't lock, and staff let people wonder in off the street without questioning if they have a legit reason to be there. Very unsafe!!!!!!!!! This place is falling apart and someone needs to do all of Mexico a favor and just knock this place down and rebuild something nice. The only news I have is I was able to prove to my credit card company that they misrepresented the hotel in pictures and I got all my money refunded.If you want a good LGBT hotel look no further then next door at The Almar!!!!
