Playa Royale is part of the Paradise Village development in Nuevo Vallarta and Paradise is certainly an apt description of this idyllic tropical setting. On a fantastic wide beach that you can walk for 8 miles, overlooking meticulously manicured gardens, a chidren’s pool and an adult pool/hot tub, it is hard to imagine a more beautiful location. If that isn’t enough, then there is the perfect climate- warm sunny days with a cool breeze off the ocean.
The condo is a delightful complement to the surroundings. Tastefully decorated in a modern Mexican style, it offers all the luxury amenities. It can comfortably accommodate 2-4 people. A spacious 1300 s.f. of living area includes 1 bedroom with king size bed and ensuite bathroom, living room with pull out sofas, a dining area, gourmet kitchen, and full 2nd bath with a hair dryer and washer/dryer. White ceramic tile floors, marble appointed bathrooms, granite countertop and cherry cupboard kitchen with stainless steel appliances. Sliding glass doors in both bedroom and living room let in ample light and lead to a wonderful lanai with dining table and lounges with a full view of the gardens, pools, beach, Banderas Bay and it’s North shore. Sitting there with your morning coffee, you might see dolphins swimming by or a whale breaching, or just enjoy watching the cheerful staff go about their daily cleaning and prepping of the pools and grounds.
Eating in is easy. There is a full set of dishes, glasses, cutlery and s/s knives, as well as toaster oven, microwave, coffee maker, blender and pots and pans. Purified water comes from the taps and there is water and ice from the fridge door. There are 3 outdoor BBQs as well. A small convenience grocer is a 10 minute walk in the Paradise Village shopping center or a short taxi ride takes you to a Walmart supercenter or to the Mega grocery outlet where you can get groceries, alcohol, clothes, sundries etc. There is even a Costco in Puerto Vallarta, a short Taxi ride away. Or you can order from the beach club restaurant on the beach, by the pool or room service.
Numerous restaurants are 10 min walk, and offer many styles and prices, from authentic Mexican to Haut cuisine, casual al fresco to formal dining. Bucerias and Puerto Vallarta can be reached easily and cheaply by bus or taxi and offer night life, art galleries, shopping and plentiful dining options. A well-developed tourist infrastructure offers access to many outdoor activities like whale watching, snorkelling /diving, fishing, surfing and more. There is a full fitness club and golf course a free 5 minute shuttle away affiliated with Paradise Village(extra fee). Or you can just relax on a lounge or chair by the pool or under a pilapa at the beach- there always seems to be one available any time of the day.
Health and safety are never an issue. The complex is gated with 24 hour security. The water is purified and there is a doctor on call. A tourist hospital is down the street in the unlikely event you need it. There is elevator service and numerous ramps making the complex accessible.
What else? Free wifi internet in the lobby, cable tv , dvd/vcr in bedroom and living room, 110 volt electricity compatible with CDN/US equipment.
