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.

second time as good as first

  • 5 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: Hi Bruce, 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!

  • 4 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: Hi Lisa, 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. Thanks, Pam

One month vacationer and returning next year

  • 5 of 5

Hi Pam,

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.

Excellent vacation property!

  • 5 of 5

The resort itself is wonderful. It was quiet and relaxing. The location on the beach is perfect you can walk either way and you can walk for miles. The view from this condo was the best out of all three that our party rented this year. We are a family of four consisting of two teenagers who spent an off a lot of time in the condo. It was reassuring to know that I was just minutes away whether I was at the pool or on the beach. This way all four of us had our perfect holiday.

It was hassle free to move in and out of this condo. It is obvious that the owner takes great pride in her property.

Unfortunately we needed a hospital in the middle of the night and were unable to phone out or phone to the front desk. The staff at the security gate or more than helpful. It turns out I didn't need help because the hospital was right across the street and we were there and back within an hour.

We saved a great deal of money walking down to the mall many evenings and picking up subs or McDonald's. A few times we did that and dropped it off at the condo for the kids and then headed to a nice sitdown restaurant for the adults.

We also saved a lot of money making piña coladas up in our kitchen and bringing them down to the pool. And if we were too lazy to do the three minute walk back to the condo the prices at the bar were cheap.

We cannot wait to go back!

A Little Piece of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

All in all, we enjoyed a wonderful 2 weeks at Playa Royale. The owner and staff at the resort were professional and helpful. The condo was clean and roomy. The balcony was just great - large with a beautiful view of the courtyard and ocean waves. Every morning we enjoyed relaxing on the balcony with our coffee and a good book. We never had to rush out to get a palapa on the beach or a lounger by the pool. Lots of available seating. Security was also very good with security guards at the gates on the road and beach.

The beach in Nuevo Vallarta is much wider, cleaner and less congested than in PV. It also has a turtle conservation reserve, so we were able to help release newly hatched turtles into the sea. It was awesome. The dolphin swim and sea lion encounter was also great fun for both adults and children. The golf course was excellent but a little pricey ($139/person for 18 holes and clubs), so we only had one game. Whale watching was also incredible - I went twice in 3 weeks and was not disappointed either time.

A number of good local restaurants are within walking distance, such as the Riviera Grill, the Fajita Republic (get a reservation) and the Mexican restaurant in the mall, but also enjoyed grilling steaks under the palapa at the resort. We ventured to the Bucerias and PVs market during the day and had fun haggling with the vendors.

Lots of good memories and I have already recommended the resort to a number of people.

Playa Royale Rocks!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Playa Royale April 20-April 30/11. The entire experience was awesome. The condo was very, very nice, the staff were very kind and helpful. The view of the pool, courtyard and the ocean were amazing, especially at sunset. Playa Royale is perfect for a family, it is a 5 star complex. You can walk around Nuevo with a real sense of safety. The gym you have access to is amazing! Although we didn't golf it was PGA quality. The restaurants were very nice! The Beach Club and the Palapas on the beach were of the best in Nuevo along the 3 miles of beach I ran. If you want a little more action it's an easy cab ride to PTO. We were more than content at the resort in Nuevo.The owners communicated well and everything you needed to know, arrangements with the staff, how to navigate your way from the airport etc.were in place. Definite plans to return. Could definitely buy there! Wouldn't change a thing. The weather, sunny and hot! The cervesa cold! What else could you want?Thanks
