About Pam and Bob Altman
Bob is a retired Assistant Police Chief, Pam is a Project Manager, and our son is a Police officer. We currently live in Illinois and it is quite cold in the winter. We wanted to retire in the warm tropical weather. We chose Playa Royale because of the location and the weather and for us it is the perfect place. We also love going to the market and getting fresh fish to put on the grill.
Pam and Bob Altman purchased this Condo in 2005
Why Pam and Bob Altman chose Nuevo Vallarta
We purchased a timeshare at Paradise Village in 1994 with the intent to use the point to vacation anywhere we wanted. Every year when vacation came everyone wanted to go back there because we loved it so much and really felt safe. We love the warm weather and wish at this point we could live in the warm full time, however we are stuck in the midwest for a while. We looked for retirement property in Florida but to be at the ocean was risky especially during hurricane season because if we were not there who was going to board it up. Coming to Puerto Vallarta and being in a condo made it feel like home and we loved that feeling. There are plenty of thing to do and see and the restaurants are great with friendly people. Best of all is the home atmosphere and tropical weather. We have made many wonderful friends here.
What makes this Condo unique
Playa Royale has all the amenities of a resort without the hassle. The condo is just steps from the beach. Within walking distance is a casino, work out facility, spa, a mall which has a grocery store, restaurants and gift shops. The golf course accommodates all skill levels. The Paradise Village Hotel's facilities are open to guests at Playa Royale. The wonderful staff at Playa Royale will even make reservations for you at shows, or dinner. Sitting on the balcony and watching the sun set over the ocean in our lounge chairs never gets old. There are plenty of sights to see. If you are looking for a romantic evening, don't miss Rhythms of the Night. A party boat takes you across the bay and you exit at Las Calletas for a show and a candle lit meal on the side of a mountain overlooking the bay.The food and entertainment were great. If you love the dolphins than you can swim with them through Vallarta Adventures, a great experience. Love turtles? This is a great experience, every Thursday they release turtles into the ocean that have been nursed back to health right on the beach.

My husband and I enjoyed our week in Playa Royale. The beach is lovely and the condo was very comfortable. Great lounge chairs to relax on the deck. Our only snag was that when we arrived at 4 PM Saturday, our condo had not been cleaned. Fortunately, we had other family to stay with and it was cleaned quickly after our report.
We will likely rent it again in the future.
Thank you for the kind words and I am sorry for the snag with the cleaning service. I did contact them and they advised they had a lot of check outs and check in that day and were behind as it is a service that does the whole complex. We hope that you will return and stay with us. It was a pleasure having you.
A beautiful complex in a beautiful location
Playa Royale is a lovely complex. The grounds are well maintained, the staff is very nice, and the beach is beautiful. The unit is spacious, has a great balcony and is well stocked - there were even face cloths – yea! It is in a tourist enclave, but we were OK with that. I would definitely rent this unit again, but offer the following suggestions for improvement:
1. A common theme for us first -timers was difficulty in getting information. The following would have been helpful:
- post the hours of operation on the lobby administration offices and the concierge office
-post the Wi-Fi code in the unit
-the concierge should offer you towel cards when you purchase a Paradise Village Social membership so that you don’t have to come back for it later (also see my comments below regarding the membership.)
- details on where to catch the shuttle; we walked down to the mall to get groceries, came out loaded down, and couldn't figure out where the shuttle stop was to catch it back to the complex - turns out you have to go to the Paradise Village hotel.
-information on what can be recycled
-check out instructions
2. A few suggestions for the unit itself:
-the unit is basically clean, but could use a deep spring cleaning - the kitchen cupboards and drawers need wiping out and all the cutlery, pans and dishes given a good wash (looks like they are taken out of the dishwasher and put away without being inspected), the bathroom exhaust vents need vacuuming, the shower grout looks like it could be scrubbed etc.
- provide additional dish clothes and tea towels - there was only 1 of each.
-some of the bed pillows need replacing as they are stained (and lumpy!)
-the coffee maker has seen better days and doesn't keep the coffee very hot
-one of the hair dryers only blows cold air
- we had 4 adults staying in the unit, and were initially only given 2 keys which was a hassle. After several days we were finally able to get 1 more from the building administrator.
3. If I had to do it over, I would not have purchased the Temporary Paradise Village Social Membership as I found that our family did not use it enough to get our money's worth. Also, I thought that we needed the membership in order to be able to purchase food and drinks at the pool back at the condo, but it turned out that you do not.
Anyhow, the above are all fairly minor things, and, as I said, I would definitely return!
We loved staying at the condo at Playa Royale. Everything about the trip was easy. Everything we needed was available in the kitchen to cook some of our meals at the condo. Access to the beautiful beach was easy with no problem finding chairs at the beach even at high season. Likewise for sitting around the pool. Lots of wonderful restaurants a short cab ride away (recommend La Laguna or The Blue Shrimp). Short walk to the mall which has a well stocked market. Pam was easy to contact and made everything about our stay easy and relaxing.
Thank you for the kind words and we are glad your enjoyed your vacation. We hope that you will return and stay with us. It was a pleasure to have you.
second time as good as first
We (family of four) have stayed in the same condo two years in a row during Canadian spring break. It is a great location and the condo has all of the amenities that you could ask for. We had friends come and visit us that were staying at an all inclusive two hotels down and were inquiring if they could find a vacant condo and move over for the rest of their stay in PV. The pool is quiet, there is always room on the beach and available palapa's. Everything you could want is within walking distance or an inexpensive taxi ride. We put in a couple rounds of golf this year and having the free shuttle to and from the course is great.The only negative that i can think of is the coordination of the two keys and fobs for access to the room and beach, our kids are 16 and 18 so we feel thy should be able to get their own access. We are looking at booking again this year for round three!
We hear you and we are headed down at the end of the month so we will make sure to have some more keys made and leave them so that they can have their own key.
We are glad you like the condo and that you found the condo comfortable and it had everything you needed. We are happy that you will return again.
Excellent vacation spot!
Our family of 5 had a fantastic time at this Playa Royale Condo. It was nicely furnished and comfortable, with a well-equipped kitchen. The balcony was amazing, such a great place for morning coffee and afternoon relaxation. The pool area and beach palapa were uncrowded, and the beach wide and wonderful. We were able to swim and boogie board, even in the December surf.
The location is very convenient, with a grocery store and pharmacy walking distance one way, and many wonderful restaurants in the other (absolutely head to El Dinamita, wow!) We even enjoyed the convenience of the hospital across the street - one broken foot, one sprained wrist (teenage boy tripped, over-enthusiastic pool volleyball, sigh.) We taxied and bussed to Bucerias and downtown PV, and had fun doing big grocery shopping at the Mega Food.
Only complaint was having just two key cards to open the gates to and from the beach. With 5 people this was a surprisingly big hassle, and we were surprised that we were not able to have more than two. We had to be together, or text each other to be let in and out, or stalk the gate and follow others. Every move required planning. Aside from that detail, we had an excellent vacation!
Thank you so much for the feed back it is valuable to us. We are headed down to PV next month and this is something that we certainly can fix for the next time. Without your feedback we would have never know this was a problem for you. If you decide to rent again this will not be a problem for you. Sorry.
One month vacationer and returning next year
This is our last day at beautiful Playa Royale. Just a word to let you know that we enjoyed greatly your comfortable condo, the view of the gardens from the veranda, the warm sunny weather we had every day and the magnificent beach. It was really a very relaxing holiday. Looking forward to next year.
Thank you so much for the kind words and I am glad that you enjoyed the condo and your stay. I am glad that you are coming back next year.
