A wonderful vacation in a great location
We spent a most enjoyable two weeks here in January 2014. We had stayed in the Puerto Vallarta area before, but this was our first visit to Girasol Sur. The unit was comfortable, clean, and had everything we needed PLUS a superb view of the ocean. We enjoyed many morning coffees on the balcony, and many evening sunsets. The photos on VRBO accurately depict the view. But they lack the wonderful soothing sound of the ocean.
The Girasol building itself is well maintained. The staff are welcoming and friendly. The bougainvillea and hibiscus everywhere add to the charm.
The ocean-side restaurant and bar at Girasol are perfectly acceptable. We enjoyed several evenings there.
It is a 15-minute (8 peso) ride on the local bus into Puerto Vallarta. There are many fine restaurants in town, where we enjoyed a number of very good meals. And the bus ride itself is part of the experience.
Speaking of the bus, it is also a short ride from Girasol Sur to other lovely spots such as Mismaloya and Boca de Tomatlan.
One additional mention is that there is a Banamex ATM conveniently located in the lobby of the Best Western Suites right next door to Girasol.
