Great property - a few issues with the condo

  • 3 of 5

Property: the property and the grounds that the condo are on are perfect. Excellent views, great pools, the beach is private and nice and sandy. The staff were phenomenal. I can't say enough about the staff at the beach club as well as the grounds. This made the trip. The manager of the development speaks perfect English and is excellent. She helped us arrange taxis, hire a cook (who was outstanding and extremely affordable).

The condo: The condo is very nice and spacious. There were three couples in our group. The add indicates three bedrooms: master which is by far the best room, a second room which is nice, large en-suite, etc but the third "bedroom" is misleading. This needs to be better explained. The add says the third room includes a queen bed, pullout/futon. It's an office with a crappy pullout. It was so uncomfortable that we took the mattress off the frame and had it on the floor. The condo is a two bedroom unit not three. Far from it. For the price that renters pay there is no excuse for the quality of "bed" in the third "room".

Additionally, the dishwasher doesn't work nor does the ice maker in the fridge. The owner, Robert, is far from ideal to communicate with. He was quick to accept our money but then extremely long time periods would occur between responses to questions if at all.

Overall the development saves this listing. Is it the most sophisticated property - I'm not sure. The development is great and we had a great time. But the add should be it was written to reflect the reality of the condo as a two bedroom with a pullout then that'd be better.

I wouldn't go back to this condo but I would go back to sierra del mar Los arcos.

Owner's Response: Sorry for your misunderstanding....the third bedroom SUITE WITH PRIVATE FULL BATH has a blow up mattress that you obviously did not use...should have placed it on top of the is perfectly comfortable also, had you notified me that the dishwasher and ice maker were not working they would have been immediately repaired and have been.....this is the nicest unit in the entire development and I have never had a single complaint about the unit or how I responded to your needs

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented Sierra Del Mar mid Oct, 2013.

It is beautify appointed and well furnished with spectacular ocean front views.

The property is south of PV and perfectly manicured with private beach, amazing infinity pools and a beach club with restaurant/café.

The staff at Sierra Del Mar made you feel as if you were the only person there. Anything you wanted to eat or do they would arrange as if you had your own concierge.

My only regret is that we did not stay longer. Sierra Del Mar is by far one of the finest places we have rented.

Thank you again and we will be back.

Fabulous experience

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, and two other couples, recently recently returned (March 3, 2013) from spending a fabulous week at this gorgeous, elegant condo. The views and sounds of the ocean were spectacular. The condo was much larger than expected and beyond beautiful.

We enjoyed breakfast and lunch most days at the private Beach Club lounging by the pool, or reading on the beach. The prices were surprisingly reasonable. The professional staff was second to none. We watched sunsets from the hot tub, fixed dinners listening to great music. Every step of the way, there were kind, friendly staff to assist us with whatever we needed. Unbelievable!

Thank you Bob, for sharing your lovely piece of paradise.

Highly recommended. We are coming back!

best place to stay in Puerto Vallarta

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (5 total) stayed at Bob Kowal's beautiful condo for a week last summer. The condo, beach and grounds are actually more beautiful and wonderful than described in Homeaway. The condo had 180 degree oceanfront views; we kayaked 10 minutes to the best snorkeling in PV; the incredibly helpful manager (Fernando) and staff made our stay perfect. There is a little poolside restaurant that serves food and drinks from 9am until 4pm. The prices are incredibly reasonable. The most expensive thing on the menu was a steak or grilled shrimp for $5.00. We lived at the beach and pool, ate, drank, read books, played cards and watched the pelicans. The water at the private beach was both very clear and very warm -- highly unusual for the Pacific. I lounged for hours in the ocean just watching the pelicans. The staff set up lounging chairs and brought us everything we needed. I cannot emphasize how great this place was.

Condo Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo for one week in April of 2012. It was a fantastic stay!! We have 5 children and wanted a very private place where we could just relax and rest. This was perfect. The food on site is superb and extremely cheap because its subsidized by the owners. Its very quiet and has wonderful views. The entire complex is cared for with great detail. The property manager hired a chef to come in for most of our dinners (the clubhouse closes at 4) and she was excellent and reasonably priced. The decor of the unit was tasteful with high end amenities. Our kids loved having a private elevator.

Honestly, cant say enough good things about this place. We are somewhat picky and have stayed at many different places in PV and this condo was great.

Beautifully decorated, tastefully appointed

  • 5 of 5

We shared this condo with another couple for New Year's Eve (a fun time in P.V.!). Spacious, elegant, tastefully furnished inside and out, yet comfortable and feeling of warmth. All new, gourmet kitchen.
