The complex: Our home is part of a magnificent condo complex where you will be surrounded by beautifully maintained tropical flowers, plants, & trees. The low-rise low-density buildings artfully tuck into the perimeter of what seems like a botanical garden. In the center is the fabulous HEATED zero-entry, infinity-edge pool with spa, and large pool deck with breath-taking views of mountain, city, & ocean, pool deck WIFI, workout facility, kitchen, and washrooms. There are handmade tables and chairs under the large palapa and padded lounge chairs & umbrellas for sun and relaxation. This peaceful oasis is set right in the middle of the liveliest part of town, called the Zona Romantica, Old Town, or Los Muertos Beach area. You are 2 blocks from the best beach in PV and 3-10 minutes walk to lots of great restaurants, lively bars & entertainment, shops, banks, ATMs, buses, taxis, quickmarts, liquor stores, bakeries, drug stores, a full grocery store, the River Cuale, and the Malecon.
Zona Romantica/Old Town/Los Muertos Beach: We love this part of town. The cobble stone streets and natural beach are alive with people having a great time all day and half the night. You can play in the sand or swim; go parasailing; fish in the surf; go to sunset cocktail hour on the beach and then have a terrific inexpensive dinner in bare feet; arrange a tour; dine at an upscale restaurant; watch the whales playing on the Bay; have Peking duck made by a Beijing chef; buy handcrafted silver jewelry and local handicrafts; listen to live music; see the Pirate Ship's fireworks display on the Bay at night; take a water taxi to a nature reserve; be serenaded by a mariachi band of little boys; catch a show at Blue Chairs; take the bus cross town for a few pesos to the Marina and look at the yachts or to Wal-Mart to stock up on cheap groceries & sundries; buy fresh tamales for tomorrow's breakfast at 8 p.m. from a street vendor; browse the art and artisan shops. A 10-15 minute walk along the waterfront to downtown will bring you to the Main Plaza and Guadelupe Cathedral.
We are self-employed baby boomers who have purchased this property to share with guests as a home away from home.
L Schaefer purchased this condo in 2006
This is an extremely unique and beautiful recently redeveloped condominium complex, laid out within the original gardens of the former property, overlooking the Bay of Banderas and Puerto Vallarta but just steps from the Beach.
You will be in a beautiful oasis of flowers and trees just steps from all the action of fun Puerto Vallarta. You are 3 minutes walk from the beach, the bars, the nightlife, great restaurants, shopping, and art galleries, without sacrificing privacy and peace and quiet.
We liked everything about Alegria! I have stayed in quite a few condos, and yours was one of the best as far as "having everything you need". It was a nice touch to have the travel guide books in the baskets (with reading material)....especially for people who may have not been to PV (or Mexico) before....your instruction book covered everything we really needed to know about operating equipment in the condo. The book was awesome! the grounds were absolutely GORGEOUS! The pool area was unbelievable........we could have spent most of our days right there (and sometimes did). One of the things we liked best was your beautiful outdoor areas.....we ate every meal outside, and grilled a couple of times. We also loved the spectacular views, and the way the windows/doors open up to the outside. I would highly recommend Alegria to anyone who is interested in renting a condo in PV. You could not ask for a better location, and next time I return to Mexico I would definitely inquire about staying there again. It was the perfect place for us.....my grandson spent hours and hours in the pool and said it felt like "home" to him.
We just returned from our trip to Puerto Vallarta and had a fabulous time. I have been many times before and this is the best condo I've stayed in to date!! We couldn't be more pleased with our stay at Alegria in the Selva Romantica complex. The condo totally rocks! It's roomy, comfy, nicely furnished (the beds are even comfy which is a rare find in Mexico) and it has everything you need already there. It's only a couple blocks from the beach and within walking distance to Market Square & the Malecon.
The pool is wonderful! It has a spectacular view and is really big! And the hot tub is also huge and hot! Resort style without all the hustle and bustle of vendors bothering you! And everyone we met, staff, residents & visitors were extremely friendly!!
I will be telling all of my friends about Alegria de Selva Romantica and recommend it to anyone who is interested in staying there (as long as it's available when I come back)!!!
We loved it!!
My parents and I stayed at Alegria for one week during December 2015. The condo was perfect for us, with spacious bedrooms and bathrooms, plus lovely indoor and outdoor common areas. Selva Romantica is a beautiful and secure gated condo community, with lush tropical landscaping and an amazing pool area (even better than the photos.) It's very well situated in the heart of Zona Romantica, only a couple blocks from Playa Los Muertos and the Malecon, and surrounded by great restaurant options.
Everything at Alegria is as described in the listing, and the condo is in perfect shape and tastefully decorated. The beds are comfortable, the air conditioning works well, and it was really nice to have a purified water faucet.
The property manager was very easy to get in touch with and waited for us to arrive when customs at the airport took longer than anticipated. Check out was hassle-free and the security guard was kind enough to help us with our taxi.
I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone looking for a peaceful stay in the heart of Puerto Vallarta. I'll definitely be staying here again next time I'm in town.
This was our second booking at Casa Algeria. As expected, the condo was in impeccable condition and common areas at Selva Romantica (grounds, pool & gym areas) were well kept. The condo is spacious and offers a peaceful, quiet escape when needed and the convenience of being at the centre of the action, within walking distance to local restaurants, bars and shopping. Definitely recommended for singles, friends or families looking for a secure rental in the heart of the Romantica Zone.
This property and our experience here far exceeded our expectations. My husband and I and our 3 adult daughters spent a week in Paradise here over Christmas and would come back in a heartbeat. The Condo is light and airy with doors opening out onto 3 balconies, one of them a very large private balcony with lounge chairs, dining set and barbecue. The rooms were spacious with extremely comfortable beds. The kitchen was fully equipped so we made several meals. The pool area which is shared was never busy and we often had the space to ourselves to swim in the infinity pool and sit in the hot tub. The other people in the luxurious gated community were very friendly. The condo is steps away from all the action in the Romantic Zone if you so desire and a two minute walk to the Malecon and the beach. I could not have picked a better place. My family was very happy and relaxed.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Selva Romantica Condo! Lots of space for me, my husband and two boys (14 and 17). Beautiful views. Great outdoor patio area. Nice furnighings and a modern, well-appointed kitchen. The pool was the highlight. Stunning view of the city and beach from the pool. Quiet and lots of lounge chairs in the sun and shade. The property is at a great central location in PV. Close to beaches and lots of restaurants. Linda was easy to deal with. The property exceed our expectations. Will definitely stay there again when we return to PV.
My group has been coming to Puerto Vallarta each year for over a decade and this is our first year staying at this complex. The condo and entire complex exceeded our expectations. The unit and grounds were beautiful and in a perfect location - close to the beach, restaurants, shopping and entertainment. The property manager was very helpful and accommodating and Linda was extremely good to work with, making the scheduling of this trip very easy. We loved it!
In this Old Town, Zona Romantica, area of Puerto Vallarta, there is a micro-climate of cool evenings and sunny warm days in high-season, with warmer wetter days in off-season. We find it perfect. You can roam the cobbled streets to find wonderful restaurants, artisan shops, lively music and colorful shows, art galleries, jewelry shops, Mexican handicrafts, and fun bars. Los Muertos, the best beach in PV, is just 2 blocks away from Alegria with water sports and parasailing available. You can catch a water taxi there to quaint Yelapa or fish for your dinner. Or you can stroll down the beach to the Malecon to take in the sites downtown--the Church of Guadalupe, live performances at the Main Plaza, etc.. There's something for everyone here. You can soak up the sun at our heated pool or walk down to the lively beach, shop to your hearts content or go for a whale watching sail on Banderas Bay, take a canopy tour in the rain forest, or go gallery hopping.
