I'm a local resident of Puerto Vallarta since 2007 and have been visiting since 1978. I've started businesses to help other travelers enjoy the beauty of what Puerto Vallarta has to offer.

From the moment you arrive the property is beautiful and always well maintained providing water features and beautiful greenery. It has the largest negative edge pool in Vallarta overlooking a beautiful beach overlooking the famous malecon. The property offers movie theatre, billard room, gym, covered parking, security gate, play ground for kids, jacuzis, showers, and restaurant/bar right next to the pool. From the beautiful modern decorations and the one of a kind view of the city you're sure to fall in love, too.
Fantastic! This is a first class resort and your condo is beautiful. Thanks and we will see you agin next year.
Double booked waited in lobby 4 hours trying to reach some one from this rental finally the father showed up and told me that his daughter had double booked the room spent another couple of hours with him trying to get another rental in the building.what a nightmare lots of better choices in building.Beautiful place grounds pools just bad rental
We just got back yesterday
This was the easiest check in. Owners were very accommodating. The property is very spacious and the views of the ocean and the town are wonderful. We have been coming to PV for 20 years. This place had all the modern conveniences and amenities that you would need. Sometimes rentals are very sparse but this had more than you can think of. Owner also has a restaurant just up the street called Las Adelitas.
We walked to Sorianas to do our groceries but a $3 cab ride would take you there. The bus is located at the entrance to the complex and gets you to downtown in 10 minutes for less than $1.
The pools are spectacular and there was hardly anyone around. It was like a private resort. There is also a restaurant on the premise serving good food and at reasonable prices.
We will definitely return.
Pro: We enjoyed the spectacular view on this property.
Con: The property is advertised as having Wi-Fi in the unit, and in the pool area. However, neither of them were available during our stay in April 2016. Guests before us left a note in the unit indicating that they did not have WI FI either during their stay in March 2016. If you need WI FI you need to go to the restaurant downstairs or go to Starbucks 2 block away. The owner did not address this concern of ours except offering us vouchers for food at his restaurant which we declined.
Wonderful condo in a beautiful facility with a fantastic pool. Great location near town.
I wish I could give this 0 or negative stars. After making the reservation and taking our money, we never heard anything back at all. We tried to contact her tons of times through various emails and phone numbers in the 2 weeks leading up to the trip. VRBO tried to contact her even more times, some of them marked urgent, with no response at all. VRBO wouldn't let us cancel because we had access information, and when we arrived, the place was disgusting. It hadn't been cleaned at all after the previous occupants who were there over a week. There was huge construction outside of the bedroom that was never mentioned. There was a note that said the internet wasn't working, and this was one of the reasons we chose this place, since we had work to do. So, we didn't want to stay there 1 more minute, especially after the complete lack of contact and frustration. VRBO put us up in a hotel for a few nights and we had to pay for the rest. So, we paid double for a vacation that was almost ruined because this absurd situation. I'm still waiting to get my money back from my credit card and we've still yet to hear anything back from this owner. Awful experience. There's no excuse. We were just completely forgotten about and ignored. VRBO was very nice, even though the situation should've never gotten to this point. I just don't get it at all.
My husband and I stayed in this condo for 3 nights and overall we were very pleased with the experience.
Positives: Location! It's an easy and cheap 15 min taxi ride from the airport, which was key for us on this relatively quick trip to Mexico. There are supermarkets within walking distance, and the local buses make it even easier. A taxi to Old Town was maybe $6 with the current exchange rate, or less than $1 on the bus. The property is right on the beach with gorgeous views out over the ocean. At this time of year the sunset was too far north for us to see as a neighboring tower blocks views to the north, but we were usually out at restaurants at that time anyway. During the winter months it is likely perfect. The condo itself was very nice - comfortable bed, A/C that we turned on at night, a water purifier attached to the kitchen sink, a gas grill on the patio (we didn't use it, but thought it was a nice touch). We liked the fact that the Grand Venetian is not a resort (with inflated prices and restrictions on personal food/drink in the pool area), but a residential condo building. There is a restaurant on the premises that is very reasonably priced, and there are no restrictions to bringing your own food/drink down to the pool should you choose that option. Security was great - we felt completely safe.
Areas for improvement: Communication in particular. The emails we received in advance of the trip were from a woman named Kammi, who is located in the US, while the actual owner is in Mexico. On this particular trip there was no communication between Kammi and the owner that we would be there, which resulted in the condo not being ready upon our arrival and almost resulted in a double-booking. Very fortunately, the owner showed up while we were in the unit just after our arrival and he immediately arranged for the room to be cleaned so all was well. Potential renters should know that this is a residential condo building with no check-in desk or on-site staff to help with questions, so communication with the owners will be important. Be proactive if you are not absolutely clear on the procedures prior to your arrival. The wifi was down in the room and had apparently been down for several weeks based on notes that were left there by previous renters. Not a deal-breaker, but would have been nice if it were operational.
Despite those few hiccups, we would definitely rent here again. Lovely condo, convenient location, beautiful views!
