Gorgeous Condo with Views in Puerto Vallarta
Submitted: April 12, 2011
Stayed: March 2011
The condo was absolutely gorgeous - well-kept, well-equipped, close to "the action" and had a spectacular view of the city & ocean. Five couples rented 2 condos in the building to celebrate a 50th birthday. Three of the couples travel a lot and we all found this condo to be exceptional. We spent a lot of time lounging around the pool and gazing out over the water. The other tenants were friendly & helpful.
We are considering arranging another trip to Puerto Vallarta to bring our daughter, because we liked it so much - and we will definitely stay here again.
The condo itself has a wonderful layout; all rooms have a view. The kitchen was set up to overlook the dining & living rooms plus the terrace. It was easy to cook and still be part of the group. The 2 bedrooms were on opposite sides of the condo, allowing for some privacy. Having laundry in the condo was also very helpful.
We found the city to be clean and the people well-mannered. We enjoyed not being on a resort; we felt we got a better sense of the local lifestyle. Grocery stores were nearby, so we alternated between eating in and out. We found a couple of amazing restaurants; one was called Mama Rosa's (I believe) - a tastely & artistic 3 course meal, with a view! for $20 - unbeatable!
The only caution is that there are many steep hills in PV and I think it would be difficult for someone who had mobility issues - although taxis were $5 to almost anywhere and the condo had an elevator.
