Best Lifetime Vacation Experience

My husband and I just had the best vacation of our lives in this condo on Playas Gemeles. Nothing backs up this statement more than saying we have already booked it for 2 months next year. The condo itself comfortably accommodated the 2 of us plus up to 4 guests visiting us during our stay. Sleeping arrangements were very comfortable - always with night breezes and the sound of the ocean. There is spacious dining area for many people or more intimate dining space on the balcony overlooking the ocean. Always there were exquisite sunsets, beautiful night skies, and perfect beach viewing from our balcony 4 levels up. The beach itself was perfectly suited to our tastes - clean, nice and sandy and just big enough - leading to the ocean with waves large enough to have fun in. We spent a portion of almost every day on the beach. There is a restaurant an easy walk up the beach -- ambiance, views, service and food all excellent. It was our tradition to bring our guests to this restaurant for a relaxing, beautiful dining experience on the evening of their arrival. A visit to Old Vallarta was an easy bus ride away and a tourist's delight. One could experience the bargaining tradition at the many sidewalk kiosks, as well as any kind of eating/dining experience, from the more primitive to the more elegant.. We visited Old Vallarta many times and never tired of the experience. Overall, we enjoyed the Mexican people, the culture, and the beauty of the land. At the condo itself, everyone who serviced the condo and grounds was friendly, helpful and efficient. Our list of special 'goodies' provided by the condo included: On hand drinking water, mini 'library', large towel supply (beach and bath), 2 tvs (many English channels), in-condo washer & dryer, lock drawer for valuables, overhead fans in all rooms, hairblowers (2), wonderful restaurant within easy walking distance, high level of cleanliness and maintenance, inside/outside surrounding beauty and easy to use bus & cab service. There was nothing not to like. I would say, we'll be back, but then I've already said that!
