Emiliano Zapata Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

A quiet retreat in the middle of town!

Why stay in some remote hotel in the Hotel Zone, the marina, or Nuevo Vallarta, when you can have a spacious, fully equipped condo overlooking the ocean at the Malecon in the heart of Old Downtown?

During the day, it's close enough to feel like you're part of the action while still remaining anonymous on your private oceanside balcony, watching sunbathers, para-sailors, and street vendors. And at night you're walking distance to Puerto Vallarta's clubs and nightlife, if that's your speed. Or take a quiet stroll after a romantic dinner on the beach and then fall asleep to the sound of the ocean.

It really is the best of all possible worlds.

Great condo, great location

  • 5 of 5

This review is long overdue. I hesitated reviewing this place in case it gets too popular. I kind of want to keep it a secret. But like most good things, deep down you want to share it and talk it up.

We stayed here this past October. We have stayed at Vista Del Sol for the last 4 vacations. The last three we rented this condo and have our next vacation booked. We originally chose VDS for the location. We love being right in the heart of things. It is on the beach, it’s close to restaurants, shops, and nightlife.

Besides being in a great location the condo has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The condo is very clean, has a fully functional kitchen, two bedrooms each with their own bathrooms, large living room with plenty of seating, smart tv, lots of movies, books and free wifi.

The balcony overlooks the southern half of the Malecon. I can spend a good part of the day out there people watching and staring out at the ocean. We’ve stayed here in June a couple of times and the tropical rain storms are spectacular.

The pool is up on the roof and provides plenty of loungers in the sun or shade. It is a quiet relaxing area to spend your afternoon. I just wish that from the loungers I could see the ocean. The 4 foot wall blocks your view. It’s a small thing….

The owners are great to work with. Magdalena responds promptly by email. Payments are secure. We have never had a problem. She spells out everything you would need to know before you arrive.

Beautiful condo in the very best location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a week the first of September 2016. I'll start off by saying when we arrived we were greeted by 2 very attentive front desk personnel. They seemed happy to have us and walked us to our room. The condo itself is beautiful and updated. It still has maintained it's Mexican design but has been updated with all the modern conveniences. The living room is spacious and opens and looks out to the Malecon and the Pacific Ocean. Being on the 3rd floor gives you enough distance for privacy but allows you viewing pleasure of people walking and listening to the sounds of the street and ocean. The master bedroom offered the same view and also had a sliding door to the large terrace. Once closed, the room is very quite. The second bedroom and bath were also very nice.The top floor is home to a beautiful roof top pool with a 360 degree view of the city, mountains and the beach. It's really a stunning view and offers nice chairs and a large shade area. Security was perfect all around, we never felt the least bit uncomfortable. Actually that goes for the entire city. The people were absolutely amazing. Overall we would rate our stay a 5 out of 5. The owners were gracious and generous. We will definitely be back!

We can't wait to go back! Best spot in PV

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this condo. My husband and I took our teenage daughters and we had a amazing time. Clean, spacious and beautiful view from the balcony! The rooftop pool was such a nice surprise. Well maintained and spectacular view of the city and beach. Everything is within walking distance as described. It was our first time in PV and we will definitely be back and stay in this condo!

A good deal

  • 4 of 5

From my memory of reading over the property description and the other reviews, everything was accurate.

Compliments (the Good):

1. The owner responded to questions very quickly and was honest and forthcoming with answers. I felt comfortable with all transactions.

2. The condo is in very good condition. I was especially impressed with the quality of the kitchen and the quality/effectiveness of the air conditioners.

3. The bed (at least the one in the master bedroom) had a very good mattress for a vacation rental. It was softer and more comfortable than most.

4. The location is about as good as you're going to find in the "Old Town". It's on the beach, on the Malecon, and very close to pretty much everything in that neighborhood. If you're looking to stay in this part of Puerto Vallarta, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better location.

5. The building staff was very good and courteous. The cleaning staff is top notch.

6. The rooftop swimming pool is very nice. It's not one of the new and popular "infinity pools", but if you stand up you can easily see the ocean and a very nice 10th floor view of the entire area.

Suggestions (the Bad):

1. My biggest complaint was the thin curtain in the master bedroom. It was utterly impossible to sleep-in past dawn, first of all, but..perhaps even worse...there is a lot of light that comes through at night due to the street lamps on the Malecon. Frankly, I was a little upset that anyone would just assume that everyone in the world is a "morning person" and be able to deal with such bright light at night and in the mornings. I believe that all hotels and vacation rentals should have thick (preferably "black out") curtains available...just as most good hotels already do. For those that prefer more light, it's easy to move them aside.

2. While I know that the owners can't control when construction happens, I do expect for hotel and vacation rental owners to inform me about upcoming construction so that I can make an informed decision on whether I want to stay or not. The building is almost entirely concrete, so there was jackhammer drilling non-stop all day, Monday-Saturday ..from multiple locations in the building.

3. The condo stank of old wood when we arrived (especially the second bedroom). It was pretty unbearable until we got some air fresheners from MEGA (although having the building/cleaning staff turn on the A/C before we arrived would have helped... It was VERY stuffy.)

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for all your positive comments, and we do welcome the negative ones as well. Let me respond to those in turn. 1. The windows of the second bedroom do face East, and I’ve watched the sunrise there many times. Next time I’m in PV, I will look into a blackout solution, though. 2. Unfortunately, other owners are not required to notify us of the exact dates of the noisy work in their condos, so I was not aware of construction going on around you. I do wish you had let me know about the noise during your stay. As you said yourself, I’m very fast to respond to e-mails. I would have tried to help you find another condo in the building, further away from the noise. 3. The smell you’re referring to is a result of very humid and salty ocean air in a closed condo, an unfortunate side effect of having a beachfront location. All it takes to clear it is opening all the windows and doors for a few minutes upon your arrival. The breeze is so strong that any stale air is removed almost instantly. Typically the maids air out a condo before guests’ arrival, but our regular maid was on vacation during your stay, and her substitute may not have been told of your arrival time.

Our favorite spot in PV

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks in This complex our favorite.. The view from the beachside deck, is just spectacular at any hour. The crashing waves become a soothing background 24/7, the perfect vista del sol “View of the Sun” as it sinks into the Pacific Horizon.

The fact that the condo’s floor plan is wheelchair friendly, was very important to me. I used a walker as well inside, as it was easier to get on the deck. Everything was laid out well with ample space to maneuver around. The shower was a walk-in style, which again suited my mobility issues. There is also a bench in there for those that need to sit and remove the shower head for handheld use.

This fully furnished condo, with newer appliances, is ready to use and make you feel at home, with great *Mexican wifi and a HD Smart tv with cabinets FULL of DVD movies. There is also a full bookshelf in case you're a reader. I have been advised the wifi has improved.

(*Mexican wifi – the signal from the router is always strong throughout the condo. The internet server struggles to keep up with demand. This doesn't register on my give a care scale)

My wife and I shared this unit with her brother. He had his own room and bathroom in the second bedroom.

The roof top pool and sun deck, are a great place to catch some rays, then jump in the pool to cool off. Plenty of lounge chairs to use up there. And there's even full washrooms for convenience.

The building is located right in the heart of Playa Los Muertos, which is lined with restaurants, beach bars and Souvenir Vendors. Again, this part of town has really improved accessibility for wheelchairs with slopes and ramps.
