Why Arlene chose Flamingos
After many vacations to warm and sunny places, we fell in love with the Puerto Vallarta area. Oceanfront, with the mountains to the east, the huge, private terrace, with dipping pool and amazing ocean view! It has it all. Great shopping, wonderful beaches, quaint small towns, tons of activities on the clean, beautiful beach, that stretches for a 10 mile walk.

We are not satisfied
Actually the place is beautiful, however, we found several details such as:
1.- From 6 days that we spend there 1 day and a half there was not elevator service, so suitcases and groceries by the stairs (8 floors).
2.- When we arrived we found some of the cleaning accessories such a broom, with dirt and a dead bird in the terrace. (Owner minimize this)
3.- The grill has remains from the last BBQ (the owner said clean it) I said I wont.
4.- The Air conditioner in one of the rooms leaked all day long
5.- I didnt get an email with the instructions to arrive neither to leave
6.- There is no open TV, only streaming in one of the TV. The one allocated in one of the rooms works only with dvd. (They should place this kind of information at the add.
7.- The gas boiler was not easy to start, maintenance guide had to do it.
8.-The towels were at the washing machine, so after several emails with the owner we realize this (No information was provided to look for the towels in the washing machine)
9.- Easy to communicate with owner, but you will not receive the answer you are looking for.
10.- One of the room has integrated the bathroom, but there is no bathroom door!
Wonderful spacious property
this was an amazing property, very large. plenty of room for families. very nicely finished and up to date.. Great view of everything here on top of the building....
My wife and two boys just returned from our vacation in Nuevo Vallarta and had an awesome time. We rented the penthouse from Shant and were not disappointed at all. Everything about the place was perfect. Were enjoyed having the family we were traveling with up to enjoy the BBQ and nightly sunsets. I would HIGHLY recommend this location and place to any future travelers.
This was by far the most impressive accomidations Ive had in all my travels in the last +30 years. The view is impossible to put into words - overwhelmingly beautiful. The grounds are well kept, and the complex is very peaceful. Comfortably quiet, no loud people, or noise/music. The penthouse is very spacious, clean, and modern. We had all the amenities one would expect from high end lodging. Plenty of furniture inside, and out, to suit your mood. I especially enjoyed the BBQ, and meals on the out door dining area. Thank you for a great stay!
Beautiful location but issues with maintenance and property management
This unit is in an excellent location, the space is wonderful and the unit is tastefully decorated. The common areas of the property are clean and beautifully maintained. It's best feature is its spectacular view with incredible sunrise and sunset shows.
We rented this property primarily because of the beautiful terrace depicted in the ad photos. That was not the reality that we encountered. Contrary to the ad photo, our patio had 1 broken table umbrella and table, 2 side tables, 6 chairs and 3 lounges. Don't even ask about the pool! The unit had not been properly prepared to accept guests. The end result being that the serenity, privacy and enjoyment of our holiday were grossly compromised by having to deal with maintenance issues and frequent repairmen in our unit.
Our experience was that there is no proactive maintenance but rather a band-aide approach operation. We were subjected to constant breakdowns of under serviced and tired equipment. Enough said! As such there were constant maintenance problems which cannot be included in 2490 characters.
The unit was superficially clean however no deep cleaning had taken place for some time including surfaces inside and out as well as linens that required replacement.
Service was poor. When brought to property manager Arlene's (Shant's mother) attention, problems were addressed but most often with considerable hesitation and delay. Items that were in our contract were not provided ie: television reception and weekly cleaning. Upon our arrival at midnight we were unable to unlock the door with the code provided by Shant as Arlene had changed it that day. Water in the unit is undrinkable due to a not maintained filtering system yet there was not even a welcome bottle of drinking water. A positive attitude by the property manager towards guests, maintenance and service was not apparent.
The four of us are seasoned travellers who have rented through Home Away dozens of times all over the world but never before have we encountered so many issues nor felt the need to submit a negative review. In good conscience we cannot recommend this property.
The penthouse is located in the center of a 10 mile beach. North is the city of Bucerias...south is Puerto Vallarta...both are steps away. Located between the Riu Palace and Samba hotels. Convenient dining, shopping, nightlife, and numerous activities are within walking distance from your front door "Downtown" Puerto Vallarta is roughly a 10 minute ride away.
