About the property

'Debbie and I just got home from two wonderful weeks in PV. Thank you so much.

This was our 4th time in your wonderful home and maybe the best. Love the improvements you continue to make. We have stayed in other units in the building including the 9th floor penthouse, but we are most comfortable in yours.

We are already thinking about our next trip. Thanks again.

Doug & Debbie'

Vista Del Sol is located on the best swimming beach in Puerto Vallarta. My apartment is on the 5th floor with 2 bedrooms, 2 baths and sleeps up to 4 people. It has expansive views of Banderas Bay.

The luxurious condo has a 30 foot terrace with views of the whole Banderas Bay - an ideal place to sip your morning coffee while watching whales, dolphins and pelicans pass by. In the evenings watch the spectacular sunsets while sipping your favorite drink.

Located at the quiet end of the beach in the picturesque Old Town, Villas Vista Del Sol is just south of the river, within easy walking distance of restaurants, shops, galleries and nightlife.

A short walk along the beach and you'll find parasailing, cruises, snorkeling, swimming and jetskiing.

If you like to spend your time under a palapa on the beach you need go no further than the front of the building, where an excellent and inexpensive restaurant will serve you drinks under your palapa, or meals at a table overlooking the beach.

The restaurant also offers room and pool service

Or enjoy swimming, sunbathing and fantastic 360 views from the rooftop pool

The condo is a spacious 1450 sq.ft. with both the living room and master bedroom opening on to the terrace.

The living room has folding glass doors creating a complete indoor/outdoor living experience with lounge chairs and dining table and chairs on the balcony .

The glass dining table will seat eight and the buffet holds everything you need for a formal dinner party or a casual meal.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything a cook wants including gas cooktop and oven and a dishwasher.

We have TV's in the living room and both bedrooms which receive national and US stations.

There are two bedrooms, both with ensuite baths.

The bedrooms are air-conditioned.

The master suite has a king size bed, and a huge tiled bathtub with room for two!

The second bedroom has twin beds which can be joined to make a king

There is daily maid service except Sundays & holidays and wireless internet

Please note: During the summer months June - Sept most HOA's in PV allow condo owners to schedule remodel work to be done between the hours of 9 am and 5 pm. This is not something that we have control over and no refunds will be given due to any noise caused during this time period.

Convenient Apartment

  • 3 of 5

Pros: The apartment is nicely situated in Old Town; it has a great location so that you can walk to most places in old town. air conditioning only in the bedrooms; furnishings in the living room are comfortable; linens in the bedding were clean and towels in the bathroom delivered daily. The entire building is well maintained and the pool area was very clean. The people that work in the building are always friendly and willing to help.

Cons: No air conditioning in the rest of the apartment (living area and kitchen); some of the pots and utensils in the kitchen are kind of old or worn out; AC in the bedrooms is loud; balcony doors hard to open. The cleaning service does only basic stuff (bathroom, floors); so anyone who rents this apartment has to clean all kitchenware on their own. Only 2 beach towels are available; and one of the towels was kind of worn out.

If you are looking for a private getaway; a romantic couple getaway, this place is not conducive for that as the balcony is not private since the 5th floor is very visible from the pier walk.

If you are looking for a family getaway, this place is good as is superbly located for many activities and the place is spacious for a family.

VIEWS: The pool area does not have an ocean view unless you are standing up against the wall. If you are laying down on the chaise lounge, you can't see the ocean which is a bummer. The balcony has a beautiful ocean view; and is great for watching the activities along the malecon and sunset.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write and I appreciate your thoughtful comments. I apologise that some of the cooking pots were old and I will replace them when I am next there There are 10 pool towels stored in the master closet so I am sorry you didn't find them all. I will replace the one that is frayed The apartment, kitchen and all dishes are cleaned before your arrival. Our maid then comes in every day for an hour and makes your bed cleans the apartment, bathrooms and changes the towels daily and the bed twice a week. She does not do dishes as I advise in the information I send you before your visit. However there is a dishwasher for your convenience. The apartment is on the 5th floor and so anyone walking on the malecon below wanting to see what was happening on the balcony would have to be seriously interested in looking up. If you don't sit right by the balcony railings you are not visible at all. The pool is on the 10th floor (roof top) and so obviously needs a wall around it for security as you can see in the photos on the website I hope you enjoyed the wonderful town of Puerto Vallarta

Beyond Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

I have had the pleasure of staying in many units at Vista del Sol in the past. This unit is exceptional as it has been updated in several ways. The kitchen is vast and has beautiful cabinets and counter tops. The privacy screen in the entry way is an added bonus if you want to keep your door open for the beautiful breeze that flows through the condo when the balcony doors are open. Kitchen is fully stocked with any appliance or utensil you might desire. The artwork is really unique and the furniture is comfortable and updated. The bedrooms are comfortable and quite soundproof when running the air conditioners. We stayed in July, which proved to be very hot. There were plenty of fans in the main living area that helped keep it very comfortable during the day when we were in the unit as they circulated the beautiful breeze that flowed from off the water in front of the condo. At night we utilized the air conditioners in each bedroom which made for a very relaxing sleep. The bathrooms are fully updated to match the rest of the condo. The pictures of this unit are nice but seeing it in person is even better! I had the pleasure of booking this condo and when my friends arrived, they were also thrilled with the choice. The balcony faces the bay and the activity on the boardwalk. The unit is just high enough to have privacy but low enough to be able to experience the charm and locals of Vallarta. One of our most favorite memories of the vacation was the time we spent relaxing on the balcony listening to the saxophone player on the beach while we were sipping a margarita. And the sunset views from the balcony were fabulous! Every. Single. Night. :) The building has wonderful security and the staff is always courteous and accomodating. Our housekeeper was very sweet and charming. The unit was fully furnished with plenty of beach towels, an iron, and hair dryer. You can't beat the location of this condo. Once you arrive by taxi from the airport, you can basically walk to everywhere for the rest of your stay. The top restaurants in Vallarta are within a few blocks. The same goes for shopping, ice cream shoppes, taco stands, markets, and night life. We didn't spend much time on the beach as we so enjoyed utilizing the roof top pool- very large, refreshing, relaxing, and private. The owner was fabulous to work with and his kindness was a nice bonus to our vacation. Staying in this unit was the perfect 10. Can't wait to go back!

This condo is beautiful! The decor is stunning, the view is perfect. Time spent on the balcony is the best as you can enjoy the ocean and people watch on the malecon. Plenty spacious for a family and furnished with everything you need. Location is awesome with restaurants and shopping within walking distance. Love this place and we'll go back!!

The perfect place to stay in Puerto Vallarta!

  • 5 of 5

My good friend and i just returned from our wonderful trip to Puerto Vallarta. The condo was just as described and was clean and pretty. We were in walking distance to many wonderful restaurants, too many to mention. The food was very reasonable and delicious at every place we tried. Shopping, art galleries and more were just a short walk from the condo. We especially enjoyed the roof top pool - very nice people from around the world, cool breezes and very well maintained. We will go back and stay again at this perfectly located property in Old Town.

Follow your bliss!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this fabulous condo has been a joy. It's spacious, with lovely decor. Ocean front with cool breezes and views never ending. Enjoy your sunsets on the expansive deck. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooks like us, or walking distance to the fabulous PV food scene. Everything you could need is here or just out the door. We can't wait for our next trip to fabulous PV and this wonderful condo.

Perfect condo

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week at this perfect condo. The location is perfect, overlooking the ocean and in the heart of town. The condo has everything you might need for a very comfortable stay. Nothing is more relaxing than having your morning coffee on the balcony, watching the dolphins and listening to the waves crashing! And Andrew was always easy to contact, to answer any questions. Just great!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review. I am so glad you enjoyed the stay - and I completely agree with you about the balcony. It is my favourite place - I can sit there for hours just watching the pelicans, frigate birds, dolphins and whales. I hope you can return to enjoy it all again very soon Andrew
