Puerto Vallarta Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms - King + Queen + Full Sofa / 2 Full Baths + Half Bath - SLEEPS 6

Hi:) A quick note to everyone.. We have noticed positing’s that state “down town Puerto Vallarta” and yet you still need a car or a taxi to get to downtown. We are 100% DOWNTOWN and DIRECTLY on the BEACH so you can walk to everything - NO car/taxi needed, just an FYI.

Beautiful, modern, water front condo, a perfect place for a great vacation. Completed in 2009 located on Camarones Beach in downtown Puerto Vallarta and just steps away from the Malecon sits Puerta al Mar. This boutique beach front Mexican style building offers a total of eight units. Six two bedroom two and one half baths, and two penthouse three bedroom three and one half bath multistory units with roof top decks. All units have traditional Mexican finishes and offer Mountain and beach front views. Puerta al Mar also offers elevator service, swimming pool, jacuzzi, outdoor bar, direct beach access, covered parking with attendant and 24 hour security. Some units also for sale..

Great location

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 8, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2014
PuertaAlMar is a fairly-new, quality building in a great location - on the beach, an easy walk to the Malecon, and convenient to Leys (for groceries) and many restaurants and take-outs. The building staff (and owner) are very friendly and eager to assist with any problems. We had a great 4 week stay.

Our only warnings:
1. There are a couple live band locations nearby whose music drifts into the condo in the evening.
2. The cable tv is Sky - mainly Spanish language. No familiar US or Canadian channels
Owner's Response: We do appreciate every review we receive and (as you can read above) go ABOVE and BEYOND to make sure our guests are taken care of and have someone available for you 24/7.. The Satellite TV which is called “SKY” in Puerto Vallarta, of course has more Spanish channels than English.. It’s a Spanish speaking country :) Out of the 300 + channels we have, about 25 are English and, we provide a guide to all guests who are not familiar with how TV works in Mexico.. We have Berenice (who we call our Director of First Impressions:) available in the buildings main office for anyone who has questions; you can also call her directly from your condo.

For music and entertainment you will find that, all over Puerto Vallarta - we are located Downtown and directly on the beach which, most people want. With that also comes a little more activity which includes nightly fireworks from you balcony, over the ocean at around 9:00 PM.. We just felt “warning” was a little harsh.. And just and FYI… If you are looking for a truly private and quiet oasis, we also have an oceanfront villa also on HomeAway # 962737.. We look forward to having you.. Bienvenido a Puerto Vallarta!!..

Puerta al Mar exceeded our expectations in numerous ways. We felt so lucky to have found this property and will return to this condo in future trips to PV.
The owners were extremely accommodating and helpful. We took advantage of some of the perks this property offered as well: the gas grill was brought up to our large, private deck, as we requested, for an evening of grilling out and enjoying family at the large patio table with lots of chairs too; we played in the pool for hours and it was nicely warmed (but not too warm). The pool was the perfect depth and also had a more shallow area for younger kids.
The kitchen had everything (pots and pans, glasses, coffee maker, microwave, even frozen glasses in freezer ready for your beer) and a large grocery store was just 2 blocks away so you truly CAN cook as much or as little as you want while on vacation. I really appreciated having a washer and dryer in the unit so we didn't have to pack as heavily. And the condo had towels for the pool for us to use. The beach was simply 5 steps away from the pool area and was fabulous. They had beach chair/loungers ready for our private use under the palms. We were happy to notice how quiet the area was even though the main drag into the heart of town is so close.
We DID walk everywhere. It was just a few blocks from the beginning of the malecon. Our family who drove from another part of Mexico to join us in PV did have their car and the condo offered extremely secure parking for them. So you don't need a car but if you do have one it will be safe.

Puerta al Mar was exceptionally clean and the owners truly thought of everything...every detail that you could imagine was already part of this property.

Our absolutely favorite part of this condo was the deck off each bedroom, with the screen door---allowed us to hear the crashing of the ocean waves all night long. Truly unforgettable.


Plus we saw dolphins in the ocean, while sitting on our deck. What a sight!!

There are a few specific restaurants that are "a must" anytime we go to PV. The top one is "Margarita Grill" located on the street of "Olas Altas"--I recommend the "molecajete" meal, big enough for a couple to share and be stuffed---YUMMY!!!
The other one is for breakfast, called "Memos Pancake House." My mouth waters for their banana with peanut butter and caramel pancakes and we always bring home Memos Coffee because it is better than Starbucks.

This is a great facility and an excellent location. Very clean and all the comforts of home. It is quiet and an easy walk to anything you may need. The Ley grocery is only 2 blocks away and you can stock up on anything. Nice, small restaurants with good prices also within a few blocks. The condo staff is very nice and helpfull and will help with anything needed. I would highly recommend this facility.

We have just returned from 2 marvelous weeks in PV staying at Puerta al Mar. The suite is on the beach overlooking a heated pool. Sunset pictures garanteed every eve. The suite is very clean with all amenities provided. A great deck and awesome BBQ. The staff are very freindly and can't do enough to make sure your stay is pleasant. The location is close to a large supermarket and several blocks to the Malecon (boardwalk). No car required here. Lots of fine resturants to choose from all within walking distance. 20 minutes on the bus to Walmart. Locals very freindly and helpfull.
We will be back.
Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review. We want our guests to feel at home when they stay with us and, we do our up most to provide the best possible service. It was a pleasure having you as our guests and hope to see you soon back at Puerta al Mar. All the best,

Best Experience Ever

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 27, 2012
  • Stayed: Jun 2012
I stayed at the Puerta al Mar from June 9, 2012 to June 13, 2012. I can without a doubt say it was most wonderful experience I've had. Making the reservation was quick and easy. The owner was very efficient and quickly responded to any questions and concerns I had. Once I arrived the staff was more than helpful to our needs.

The town and beach was pleasant and I had one of the most unforgettable experiences in my life. I plan to come back and stay here again. I recommended this to my friends and family.

The building is very nice and clean, its very private and much better than a commercial hotel. The condo felt like you were at home, yet it was very nicely decorated. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean and comfortable. There is a large swimming pool and just steps away from the gorgeous beach. There is a large balcony in the room and the living to enjoy the view the beautiful sunsets!

Its a A++++ in my book.

I hope many vacationers will enjoy it as much as we did.
Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your great review! It was really a pleasure having you stay ,with us this year and, we hope to see you again soon at Puerta al Mar.

Located on Camarones Beach in downtown Puerto Vallarta, also known as 'Viejo Vallarta,' which is the site of the original fishing village that turned into a world-renowned tourist destination. With cobblestone streets, a pretty town square, and Puerto Vallarta's most famous landmark, the Cathedral Our Lady of Guadalupe, 'El Centro' has a unique charm and character of its own. A mile-long boardwalk known as the 'Malecon' runs along the downtown oceanfront street, Paseo Diaz Ordas, where you will find shops, restaurants, galleries, specialty stores and traditional marketplaces facing the ocean.

This boutique beach front Mexican style building offers a total of eight units. This unit has traditional Mexican finishes and offer Mountain and beach front views. Puerta al Mar also offers elevator service, swimming pool, jacuzzi, outdoor bar, direct beach access, covered parking with attendant, and 24 hour security.

Other Activities: Paradise may be considered a state of mind, but when visiting Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, one definitely experiences a real life paradise.

Golf: Marina Vallarta Golf Club Located in Marina Vallarta, 3.6 miles, since most of the fairways are lined with palm trees and guarded by water, a premium is placed on accuracy.

Flamingos Golf Club Located in Nuevo Vallarta, this traditional-style course enjoys the reputation of being the easiest to play because of its wide-open fairways. Phone:

Punta Mita Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Located 40 minutes to the north, there are two 18-hole courses. Pacífico eight picturesque holes bordering the ocean. Hole #3b, called the “Tail of the Whale,” is a 194-yard, par 3 that plays across the ocean to a rocky island green. Bahía has seven oceanfront holes and is a little more challenging than

Mayan Palace Golf Club Located in Nuevo Vallarta, this is a fun course, though bunkers and water hazards are everywhere. The #14 signature hole is a beautiful 166-yard, par 3 with the ocean on the left and a lake on the right.

El Tigre Golf Club Located in Nuevo Vallarta, this is a lengthy course protected by traps and water throughout. The mammoth finishing hole is the par 5, 621-yard “Tiger.” Most golfers find it untamable because water runs all the way down the left side and the multi-tiered green is surrounded by sand.

Vista Vallarta This is actually two spectacular golf courses at one location, 5.2 miles, just 10 minutes east of the airport. The Nicklaus course has garnered worldwide recognition since hosting the 2002 EMC World Cup Championship.
