About Owner

IT Executive for a large US Company. We first visited Puerto Vallarta in 2003 and fell in love with the city. After numerous trips back to enjoy the fine food, beach and people, we decided to purchase an apartment in 2007. At that time it was it was in the planning stages and in 2010 we took possession. We have enjoyed bringing the apartment to life. We hope you will enjoy this great city as much as we do.

Owner purchased this condo in 2010

We loved Icon Vallarta and want to go back.

  • 5 of 5

Icon Vallarta is clean, new and exactly as described. The view from the condo is spectacular and the way the wall of windows opens onto the deck is fantastic. All of the services were excellent. Everything that we needed was in the condo or available close by. This is the best condo we have ever rented on vacation.

We spent lots of time enjoying the marvelous swimming pools. The restaurant and the bar near the beach are really nice features. We walked as far as we wanted to on the beach almost every day. We made frequent use of the great grocery store very close by. Likewise it is easy to walk to Walmart and Sam’s Club. We also found a number of restaurants that we liked within walking distance.

We rented a car several times and visited San Sebastian, Sayulita, Punta de Mita, the zoo and other places. We also went on some great tours which departed from nearby locations, including a day long sailing cruise, Rhythms of the Night and zip lining.

I would recommend Icon to my friends any time.

Welcome Home!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I along with two of our very good friends rented this beautiful, spacious condo after a hurricane damaged the place we were supposed to stay at in Cabo. While disappointed we couldn't return to Cabo, we fell in love with this place as soon as we stepped out of the taxi ($10 US from the Airport) and into the elevator that opened directly into the condo. Turn right and the ocean is staring at you from the large living room/patio. To the left and down the hall were two large bedrooms with their own bathrooms and another large patio overlooking the beautiful mountains. Karla (who manages the property for the owners) greeted us, showed us around the condo and then left us to enjoy the property!

Not only is it modern, but the pictures are very current! The kitchen was stocked with everything you wanted (including a Margaritaville blender which we loved) and worked perfectly to cook in (with a Soriana grocery literally a 3 minute walk from the building). The 18th floor view to the ocean and pool never failed to put a smile on our faces! There were plenty of towels and a full washer/dryer which came in handy.

The amenities include the large pools, hot tubs, a beach/pool bar with a waitstaff who came around regularly and were all friendly (Ivan at the pool and Rengal (think he was in training) at the Concierge were especially nice/friendly). The Concierge would order us taxis which came within 2 minutes (Taxi fare from Icon to Old Town/Romantica Zone was $100 Pesos; $60 Pesos to Marina - both places have awesome restaurant options)! There was a restaurant on site for breakfast and the pool bar served lunch (not the best but sometimes it beat going up to the condo to make your own). The drinks were good (Pina Colada was better than the Margarita) and were $3 or less.

If I was to have any suggestion for improvement: Bring a non-stick pan. The cookware was great but without non-stick spray, cooking without food sticking is difficult.

Be prepared for: The condo rules don't allow floaties in the pool or having a drink (even in plastic or in cans) near the pool - they will come around and ask you to move back to the chairs if you have a drink too close.

Welcome home was a phrase the Security and/or Concierge would use almost every time we arrived back and it was a really nice touch! This place is fantastic and we would definitely recommend it!

Fantastic vacation

  • 5 of 5

What can I say? The apartment is amazing and the Icon could not have been more perfect for a vacation. I have no complaints whatsoever. Views to die for. The condo is very tasteful and comfortable. We used the pool and swam in the ocean every day. Very easy and affordable to get into the town centre for shopping and meals. We also went to restaurants nearby. The concierge and all the staff at the Icon were very helpful and friendly. Our stay was not long enough and we already want to go back!

Perfect Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the apartment in early september for 1 week and had an absolutely perfect vacation. The Icon development is beautiful - great pools, beach, beach bar / restaurant, the the apartment was impeccably furnished and equipped. The appliances were all high-end GE monogram (which we have at home) and having a washer/dryer in the apartment was a huge plus.

What I didn't realize until we got there is the apartment has a electronic security code which allows you to enter into the unit from a private elevator entrance. Stepping off the elevator with a stunning view of the ocean upon arrival was truly spectacular.

We had a great trip and I'd also like to thank Alan who was generous with his time and was very attentive while booking/reserving our vacation.

Everything was great, perfect in fact.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time and stay. Nothing but positive comments about the unit and furnishing. Kitchen has everything we needed for two weeks. Views were great out front and back. Great compliment of technology with Wifi, Apple TV, and iPad we were able to get connected with no issues even with our own iPads, IPhones and other electronics. Skype and long distance calling back to Canada with no issues. Unit was well equipped with cleaning supplies, and basic items in pantry (Salt, Pepper, Oil, Vinegar, some spices). Grocery store is a 5 min walk away, Walmart was 10 min walk. Costco was $50 Peso taxi ride.

Building and grounds are modern and well maintained. Staff where very attentive and helpful. I had an inflatable Paddle board with me and used it early every morning. The pool and grounds manager saw me first day and ran out to help me unpack things and offered a place to store it in a secure location by the beach for our two week stay. Fitness facilities had current and top of the line equipment. My wife used the treadmill every day. Pool bar and Food was excellent, great for lunches. Menu items and specials changed every day with buffet over the weekends.

ICON is in a great location, Central. $60 – 70 Peso taxi ride to the Marina, $60 – 70 Peso taxi ride to the Malecon. We split our time with dinner between the Marina and Malecon during our stay so being central was a plus.

We stayed Dec 21, 2013 though Jan 4, 2014. During the first week facilities were not busy, my guess was ICON was at half capacity. No issue with pool chair, beach chairs, drinks at bar. We had use of day bed/lounge most days. Second week resort was at full capacity, with many people vacationing over New Years. Still no issues around the pool and beach with chairs, maybe a little more time to find a few chairs and move things around. Fitness center was busy in the mornings. Beach Bar was very busy second week, but staff worked hard, things took a little more time. Many many long term owners and renters that said after the Christmas rush, things slow down and get quiet.

Will go back and would be happy to recommend to friends and others considering a trip to PV.

Fabulous apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

I had a fantastic stay in Puerto Vallarta and Al's property was one of the main reasons.

The apartment is beautiful and modern just as in the photos and has incredible views from both the ocean and the land sides. Accommodations in the apartment are all high-end and comfortable with a full kitchen and office.

The staff who met me on arrival and the concierge in the lobby were perfect and were able to handle all my questions and requests. The gym, which I used frequently, has the right amount of equipment to get a complete workout. And there is a full supermarket just a short walk down the street.

The location is one of its best characteristic with the Icon having beautiful grounds, great pools and a private beachfront property, I am impressed with its location, design and layout. It's also very convenient as it's just a short taxi ride into the city, with a taxi-stand located in front or it's a quick bus ride if desired.

The place is great and the location is perfect; and I plan to return for another visit soon.
