There is no location in Puerto Vallarta that comes close to Playas Gemelas. It is the most secluded and clean of all the beach areas. The owner is a long-time environmentalist who is concerned about the cleanliness of the ocean and beaches, and actively works to that end. Her 11th floor location not only has a stunning view, but is protected from road noise by it's location in the center of the tower. All pools are kept sparkling, the grounds are a tropical park, security is absolute. Daily lunches at the neighboring palapa restaurant are a treat.
We find the local bus to town fun and convenient, and if our return from a Puerto Vallarta restaurant (many international choices) is late, taxis are inexpensive and readily available. Galleries are varied and interesting for those who find they enjoy contemporary Mexican artists.
My wife and I were looking for a nice quiet beachfront condo in PV as we are not fans of large hotels. Irene's listing immediately caught my eye and after seeing pictures, reading reviews, and speaking to Irene directly, we booked it right away. Irene was awesome, described all amenities and details, set up transportion from airport, recommended restaurants, alerted staff of our arrival, and all other info needed for our first time visit to Playa Gemales. Irene is a long time owner and is very involved with the conservation and well being of the area and it shows. After arriving to the condo, we knew this was a great call. Everything was as described, including the view which is breathtaking! Staff was great, white sand beach and amazing sunset dinners at Palapas restaurant next door was second to none. You easily could not leave the grounds for a week! We did venture north to old town a few times (don't be afraid to use the public buses) and made the trek south to Mismaloya for shrimp and visited the Botanical Gardens in Boca. Such a cool adventure! Our only regret was one week was not enough time! We definately will be back.
From the moment we arrived we were enchanted with this property. The condo had all the amenities we needed and was beautifully situated on a magnificent beach with gardens surrounding all four buildings. The reception staff were extremely helpful even interceding on our behalf to get medical attention for my wife when she got very ill and later, serving as translators, explaining discrepancies in medication to the pharmacist on our behalf. They offered advice on getting around the area, things to do and places to visit. When requested, taxis arrived in minutes to our condo. We delighted in breakfasts on our balcony overlooking Bandaras Bay with sea birds flying right by only feet away. One day we were excited to view a group of whales breaching and diving no more than a kilometre away. The room was a delight with many treasures of Mexican culture that the owner must have collected from artisans in the area. The condo is light and airy with wonderfully large windows viewing the sea. The pools were very clean and heated and never crowded. Playas Gemelas is a great place to get away for a quiet vacation in the sun and the night life and all the city has to offer are only minutes away by taxi or bus. It is also a convenient location to visit the Botanical Gardens as the bus goes right by the complex. One final comment, the owner was most accommodating to us and provided even more service at her own expense than we had contracted for. She went beyond the norm to ensure that our experience at Playas Gemelas was unsurpassed. I highly recommend this property.
My husband and I enjoyed the gorgeous surroundings, wonderful condo filled with Mexican decorations and two patios with amazing pots of plants! The view from the eleventh floor patio was incredible. Great restaurants nearby!
Playas Gemelas is by far the best place to stay in Puerto Vallarta! With sweeping views of the ocean and a private beach, what could anyone ask for.
I've stayed here many times and I will continue to go back! The staff is also wonderful and very accommodating.
The property was clean and the grounds are very well maintained.
The owner was a delight to the work with!
I love waking up in the morning and enjoying my coffee while sitting on the spacious patio looking out at the beautiful ocean just below me. It also has 3 pools to meet everyone's needs.
I also love the central location to downtown PV and to the all rain forest activities. Canopy zip line tour, botanical gardens, great restaurants and boating excursions to name a few!!
In a word, this is paradise!! Can't wait to go back!!
