Relive the exciting days of old Vallarta when Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton were busy working, playing and making Vallarta famous. The Four Winds, better known as Los Cuatro Vientos, one of their frequented favourites, offers four charming suites which accommodate 4 to 5 persons. There are also ten quaint double rooms and all at reasonable prices. A courtesy buffet breakfast is served each morning in our garden patio. There is also a dinner restaurant on site, Chez Elena, well known to Canadians for their great specials. We are centrally located so you can walk to shops and beaches in just minutes. There is also a rooftop terrace/bar that overlooks the entire bay and the view is stunning. We invite you to join us and experience the real Mexico!

Restaurant and Rooftop Bar

The on-premise restaurant Chez Elena and the rooftop bar El Nido is the best place to relax and enjoy the views of the entire City and Bay while sipping on a cold margarita. Try some tasty Mexican dishes with options of fresh-catch seafood, chicken, beef and pork. Chez Elena was chosen as the best restaurant in the Lanier Bed & Breakfast Travel Guide for 2010. Hotel guests will receive a 10% discount at El Nido and Chez Elena during their stay.

Past guests and locals are always returning to the restaurant and rooftop because of its excellent food and beautiful views. The best time to come is during happy hour so you can have a drink and enjoy the sunset.
