About Diana and Andrew Lister

Diana and Andrew Lister currently live in the Pacific Northwest on Bainbridge Island, Washington.

Diana and Andrew Lister purchased this condo in 2015

Why Diana and Andrew Lister chose Emiliano Zapata

We love Selva Romantica in Old Town because of its friendly and relaxing atmosphere.The complex is like an oasis against the backdrop of the bustling town of Puerto Vallarta. There is plenty to do just outside the gates of the complex and when we have exhausted ourselves, we can cool off in the pool or have drinks on our terrace and just enjoy the relaxing atmosphere.

amazing time at Casa Loma

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Casa Loma for 2 weeks over the holidays. Amazing condo with all the amenities. Would definitely go back. Easy access to the Romantica District. Great communication with the owner.

This was the most fantastic place we have stayed yet!

  • 5 of 5

The moment we walked through the gate of the community and down the walkway to Casa Loma we where overwhelmed by the beauty of this place. The property manager was so helpful and informative. Then we entered this condo. It was breathtaking in style and decor. Even with all the construction work going on in the area it was a peaceful place to be and still had amazing views of the area and Hotel Zone across the bay. The complex was very secure and safe with security guards both day and night. It was a short walk in any direction fr great food, drinks, sunbathing at the beach and shopping. In away really didn’t want to write a good review, we want to keep the place for us. The four of us had a great time. We will be back to Casa Loma as many times we can.

Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Great host and housekeeper. The location was perfect - only a block or two from several great restaurants and the Malecon. We loved the architecture and style of the condo and grounds. One of the most beautiful pools I've seen.

Great vacation at Selva Romantica!!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 had a great stay at this condo in the Selva Romantica complex. The condo is immaculate with everything you need for a great vacation. The grounds at this complex are very well maintained. The pool area is very nice. Large pool which is great for both kids and adults Great views all around from the pool area. . The Selva Romantica complex is in a perfect location. Everything is walkable from this location. 2 blocks from the beach and many restaurants and shops just outside your door. This is a great place to stay . I recommend it and would love to stay here again in the future.

Beautiful Property but....

  • 3 of 5

This property is beautiful. Lovely pool and landscaping to die for. The condo is spacious and decorated beautifully. The downfall? The surrounding condo construction and associated noise was obnoxious. The dirt and dust made cleaning difficult and it would have been nice to know ahead of time that the view would literally disappear before our eyes as construction continued. Very accommodating owners but would have liked to know what we were going to deal with.

Clean, classy and convenient.

  • 5 of 5

Casa de Iguanas was perfect! The home is well maintained and very clean. The bed was very comfortable and the outdoor balcony is a wonderful spot with unspoiled panoramic views.

As others have noted, the walk back up to Selva Romantica is steep. Having said that, our five year old managed fine and the home is perfectly located for all of Zona Romantica. We were very happy that we chose to stay at Selva Romantica as it is above the noise of the dance clubs in Puerto Vallerta. You can still hear the music late into the night if windows are open, but with windows closed and a/c unit on, you sleep like a baby!

The home is well stocked with cooking utensils and appreciated having onsite laundry. The WiFi has a strong reception and we enjoyed using the bluetooth speaker for listening to music while in the home. The pool is lovely and a great retreat after touring the sites. The grounds of Selva Romantica are well maintained and the area is very secure with gates and security guard. We felt very safe at all times.

Diana (homeowner) and Mavy (concierge in PV) are both very accommodating and wonderful hosts. We would definitely consider returning!
