I disagree with the previous review. My family and I have stayed at Playas Gemelas every year for the past 10 years. We stayed in this condo last year. I found it very clean and accommodating.

The staff is wonderful. The Condo grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The Condo itself was perfect for our visit. It had everything we needed. Plenty of linens, towels, kitchen supplies etc... It was very comfortable and well kept. It's very inexpensive to use the facilities washer and dryers. Not a big deal to take the laundry down to the central building to launder your clothing and linens.

As for the internet comment made by the previous reviewer: Who cares if the internet is having issues...it's a vacation! There are plenty of internet "cafe's" in town that are super cheap to use if needed. I personally have never encountered internet problems while staying at Playas Gemelas.

Keep in mind, this unit is a vacation rental. The owners do an excellent job to insure that their guests have a comfortable stay. The owner is extremely responsive and professional. The building is clean and beautiful. It really is the best place in PV! The beaches and pools are unbeatable and the entire staff is wonderful.

I will and have recommend this unit to my family and friends. I will also rent from Greg again.

GREAT place to stay in Puerto Vallarta

Greg and Faviola have created a charming place to stay in Puerto Vallarta. I love the art work in the condo. The condo is on the side of the building, so if you look right you see the beautiful mountains and if you look left, you see the beach and ocean. The balcony has a table and chairs and it was so nice to be able to have breakfast looking out over the ocean.

There is plenty of space in this condo with the living room being on the other side of the kitchen from the bedroom. It was terrific having the two bathrooms and most unusual to have this in a one bedroom condo. The living room and dining room furniture were nice and the bed was soooo comfortable. There is a lot of storage and closet space and plenty of hangers (always a nice thing)! Greg and Faviola provide beach chairs and an umbrella. My husband and I bought two fun noodles and left them there for the next renters. The kitchen is fully equipped and water and ice are provided for free. I could not think of a thing that was missing!

The grounds are beautifully kept and the beach is perfect. If you want to have full loungers, you can reserve them from the front office. Loungers, tables, and umbrellas are available for all days except for holidays when the owners have first dibs. This made it good that there are chairs and the umbrella in the condo. The staff working the front desk were all helpful. There is a laundry facility right next to the office. Although there is no restaurant on site, the place next store has a restaurant and a small store. It is a quick walk from the beach or road. If you plan on being in Puerto Vallarta over New Years, do be aware that the restaurant will not be open for breakfast on New Year's Day, so stock up for your breakfast at home.

The location of the condo is perfect; being out of town means that you get lovely ocean breezes and peace and quiet. It was very easy to pick up a bus or taxi to go to town or to other places in the area. We took the bus pretty much everywhere as it is cheap (7 pesos) and easy to use. The entrance to the zoo or to Mismaloya Beach is a quick bus ride.

Just a note: Mismaloya Beach was recommended to us, but we were not impressed with it - our own private beach was much nicer! The zoo is well worth the price of admission. It is family owned and the staff from the Director down to the cleaners cares about their charges. They have a terrific breeding program and there were lots of baby tigers.

I highly recommend this condo!

What a great vacation I had

Wonderful , wonderful!! I stayed in this condo for almost 5 weeks and had a fantastic time. The condo was very comfortable and allowed for privacy in two areas so my visitors and I were not on top of each other. Each area had its own TV, bathroom and sleeping area. The kitchen is in between and fully equipped. The heated pools are a real treat and well taken care of by a friendly and competent staff. And if you prefer the ocean, Banderas Bay is just a matter of feet away. The condo owner provides beach chairs and an umbrella so you don’t even have to rent them. The views are incredible from the balcony—the ocean on one side and the jungle mountain on the other. What a breathtaking way to watch the whales play while you have your breakfast and enjoy your happy hour margarita!!! The grounds are beautiful and there is even a secret garden where you can quietly read your book, meditate or perform your yoga routine. It is great fun to take the bus to the romantic zone for dinner. It costs less than a dollar for a roller coaster ride down the hill that takes about 15 minutes. Of course, there are so many outstanding restaurants that I wouldn’t attempt to try to name them. This condo is what I would describe as a down home Mexican comfy and clean condo which is what I want on a relaxing vacation. I absolutely loved my time at Playas Gemelas and plan to return there again and again. Thank you very much, Greg and Faviola!!!!

Highly reccomended!

We rented this condo for a family vacation in February. The setting was superb. The condo is located right on Playas Gemelas Beach which is gorgeous, uncrowded and safe. The owners and staff were very helpful. We appreciated that the complex was located in a quite, pristine setting but only a short drive away from the city of Puerto Vallarta. The Condo is very convenient to Mismaloya and the rest of the Mexican Riviera.
Here are a few highlights:
-Balcony was on the side of the building and the view was great with daily sightings of humpback whales.
-Snorkeling off the beach was superb with many tropical fish and small swells.
-Kids enjoyed the beach, body surfing and jumping from pool to pool.
-Condo residents were friendly and take great care of the complex.
-Clean, comfortable and safe accomodtions including a lifeguard on the beach.
- The restaurant on the beach was excellent, convenient and a great place to watch the sun set and whales.
- The room was comfortably furnished, well equiped and very clean.
- These accomodations are a great value and exceeded our expectations!

Better than we hoped for....

We have stayed at this property twice before in a different unit owed by a friend. This year, the friend's unit was not available the week we were going to Puerto Vallarta so we found this unit through this website. We wanted to stay at Playas Gemelas because we knew this property knew and loved its location. (Great beach, helpful, friendly staff, lovely manicured setting with three pools).
The unit listed here was everything promised... and MORE!
All our dealings with the owner were smooth and straightforward. Nothing was misrepresented. The price was VERY reasonable especially as compared to other rentals we have heard about.
There have been comments below about street noise but, we disagree. To be honest, the sounds of the waves were the predominant sounds we heard.
The unit was clean and spacious and everything we needed was there for us to use. We felt right at home immediately. We contacted the owner several times with questions which he answered right away.
The view from the balcony was great (we saw several whales, dolphins and manta rays).
I recommend this unit.
