The property was great!

  • 5 of 5

The property was great. It was nice to walk out the door and walk across the street to get breakfast. Walk for less then 5 minutes and you have various restaurants and bars. The unit is very modern. It has everything you need. I wish I could have used it, with all the great restaurants in walking distance no need to cook.

I used the pool everyday, it was a great space to relax and enjoy the views. I love PV and the condo was great. I would recommend it to my friends and family.

Comfotable Condo in a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This was my first trip to PV and, on the recommendation of the friends I was traveling with, I chose to stay in V399. It couldn't have been a better experience. The building is centrally located in the near all the shops, restaurants, and clubs, and is a short walk from the beach. The rooftop deck and infinity pool are gorgeous and the views are amazing. This particular condo is very contemporary and tastefully decorated. It has all the amenities you could want for a comfortable short- or long-term stay. The studio condo is perfect for two people, but can accommodate three in a pinch. I will definitely stay here again. Highly recommended!

Great condo in Old Town

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this studio apartment during October 2015. It is a wonderful condominium complex where we thoroughly enjoyed a three week visit to Puerto Vallarta.

If you're looking for a quiet and comfortable apartment in the middle of the Romantic Zone, this is the place. All major attractions including fantastic dining and interesting bars are within a 5 minute walk and the beach is only 3 blocks away. The condominium is very well-constructed (including triple pane windows) so we didn't hear any of the party noises late at night. Since the building is relatively new, there are many high-end upgrades which we appreciated. Rainfall shower head, washer/dryer, dishwasher, large refrigerator with ice maker and granite countertops are just a few of the nice amenities. And speaking of amenities, the rooftop infinity pool and terrace area give you a breathtaking panorama of Puerto Vallarta.

We had only one minor concern with the apartment: there is limited natural light making the unit somewhat dark, and the interior lighting is quite dim. Canned ceiling lights are oddly placed and two lamps at bedside are not very bright. But it makes for a romantic setting.

We found the king size bed to be very comfortable. There is an abundance of closet space. Also there is a window to the left of the head of the bed that opens to a west “peekaboo” view of the water and nice ocean breezes in the morning. You can poke your head out the window and look north to see the nightly fireworks over the bay!

Michael Piana, the owner of the apartment, was a pleasure to deal with. He responded promptly to all our questions and concerns. V399 is a beautiful complex with friendly and helpful staff. We look forward to another visit in the future.

Great Condo and Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week here and just loved it. It's modern, clean, and perfect for two people. We really loved having a laundry machine to wash our things and having a spacious fridge for any food and drinks we purchased. The pool was under some construction at the time (luckily there's a beach you can walk to!) but we could tell it was going to be just gorgeous. The views from the top of the building are fabulous. We also happened to be staying there when Hurricane Patricia was threatening to hit and the staff there were just great. I was happy to see that they still came in and were working to help answer any questions or concerns we had. They really appeared to be on top of it and helped to settle some of our nerves which I greatly appreciated.

On top of all that the location is just great! As I mentioned the beach is within walking distance, about 5 minutes. There are several delicious restaurants all within walking distance as well. The bus stop is right on the same block (that go to the Marina/Walmart/Costco...) and there always appeared to be a taxi right near by. There are also two Oxxo stores (like 7-11) located nearby. Overall just great!

Had an excellent time. My daughter and I loved the place. Very clean and spacious for the two of us. We loved the security of the building and felt very safe. The pool was fabulous!! Would definitely stay again.

Fantastic condo in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time staying at this condo/unit, it was just as good as the first. Excellent attentive staff took care of everything, even when faced with a minor problem. So a great big thank you to Gabbi, Katrina, Eduardo and Miguel for keeping on top of things.

The condo itself has everything one needs for a comfortable stay. Having dual a/c units was a blessing as there were a few very hot days during my stay. Also having a washer/dryer unit inside the condo was a great plus as packing was made much easier/lighter, especially with the strict airline weight restrictions. Laundry detergent and fabric softener provided, along with dish detergent and some other assorted essential toiletries.

The real plus to this condo is its rooftop pool/jacuzzis (2)/ gas bbq and lounge area. Many days were spent under the canopy: sipping homemade mojitos, reading my book and occasionally looking up at the wildlife passing by. There are many types of butterflies, dragonflies and if your lucky hummingbirds. Everywhere you looks the views are to be enjoyed from ocean, city or mountain. Great photo opportunities abound. No text: great fireworks from the pirate ship,every night between 9:30-10:00.

But the real added bonus to this condo is its location, so close to everything. Being right there at the corner of I. vallarta and B. Badillio you've got great shopping, restaurants, bakery (Yaritas), liquor store and of course the beach less than a 10 min walk. Go for a massage at Philipe's right next door to the condo, a on hr combo massage/reflexology cost $450 peso or less than $40CND with tip. Philips really knows his stuff and this is coming from a holistic practioner, highly recommended. For those who like to cook, check out Emiliano Zapata Mercado a fantastic area. Stop in for a drink at Que Pasa on A. Serdan, great drink/food specials. Owners Mike and Yvonne are some of the kindest people you ever met. If your a seafood lover El Colera, I know strange name has some of the best seafood at great prices located right in the market. With so many great places to discover, just ask around the locals are very friendly. I travel alone often and have always felt very safe at anytime of day/night.

There's so much more I could say: the weather, the food and of course the people of Puerto Vallarta. Truely are some of the warmest and friendly folks I have ever met on my travels. Thank you Michael for sharing your little peace of heaven with us all.
