Great stay at casa Daniel
The condo is in a fantastic location. Close walk to beach ( think cobblestone vertical... sturdy flat shoes a must.) Close walk to town as well. I won’t repeat the traffic noise comment as many have expressed it already. Earplugs help! Roomy and well furnished/equipped. The manager is available and acts upon every request immediately. The wifi is spotty- not sufficient to conduct zoom meetings if you plan to work you may have to find a coffee house. Ubers cancel often because the address that comes up is not the correct one. If you change it to the correct address each time you order an Uber you will be fine. Master bedroom stays less hot while you’re gone if you close the curtains. very comfortable beds and lots of closet space. Yoga mats and kids pool toys provided as well as nice quality beach and bath towels. Would definately stay here again.
You are welcome back anytime, Michele. And I promise to upgrade the wifi before then! :)
Spacious, good amenities, and spectacular views
Simply and comfortably furnished, this property met my expectations. I was made aware before I arrived that noise from the road right outside is an issue for many. Though I can sleep through almost anything, the noise was generally problematic especially in the morning. That did not detract from the views and the comfort of the home though.
There were several simple details that I appreciated as an international traveler. There is a large book for menus and advertisements for restaurants and activities in the area. He also organized all of the leftover sunscreen and bug spray and left them on top of the buffet. I used some of these during my stay! There were also plenty of beach towels.
Daniel did a wonderful job maintaining communication with me from the time I booked through the end of my trip (despite the fact that I was not very good at responding myself.)
If I were to make any suggestions, it would be to invest in cleaning the outside of the windows in the master bedroom and provide proper curtains. The view is spectacular but the very dirty windows were a true distraction. I would also have preferred newer sheets and pillows. Beyond that, I would consider staying at this property again.
Thanks for the feedback, Will. All my best, Daniel
Wonderful spacious apartment with incredible views
Had a good time with the 3 of us at Daniels penthouse, enjoyed the spacious rooms and patio, the large pool at the complex and the dipping pool on top watching the sunset.
Once we got familiar with the surroundings it was easy to get into town. Lots of great restaurants, stores and markets close by.
We usually walked down and taxied up as we are in our mid-seventies and not as agile as we like to be.
The apartment has everything you need, stocked kitchen, towels etc
Its a bit noisy at times because of the highway, but we were prepared and slept great.
Daniels place is a good deal and would stay there again.
Delighted to have had you as a guest, Douwe. You are welcome back anytime!
spacious living-beautiful view
We thoroughly enjoyed our month at Casa Daniel. The condo was clean ( big thank you to Marta who works so hard to keep it that way) We had all the necessities including beach towels / cleaning supplies/and a few extras in the fridge left by other occupants which was a nice surprise. The walk up to the condo was quite a walk as we had read in other reviews but was greater than we expected. Our small grandchildren joined us but it was quite difficult getting around with a stroller because of the stairs and cobblestone streets. However, the beautiful pool and the roof-top pool made up for it. It seemed almost a private pool for us as not too many people seemed to enjoy it as we did, especially the view.
The street noise was an issue but ear plugs took care of that.
A big thank you to Daniel as he kept in touch throughout our stay to make sure everything was good. (and thanks for the new coffee maker)
The only thing that should be attended to is the sofa. It is in dire need of new cushions.
If the opportunity to stay at Loma Linda arises we will not hesitate to return. It was a wonderful stay.
Thanks for your feedback, Denise. You and your family are welcome back anytime! (I will be replacing the sofa cushions soon, by the way.)
All my best,
An incredible value in Puerto Vallarta!
I'm am giving this property a 5 star rating based on its value! It is an incredible value in Puerto Vallarta! It has exceptional views and a very nice pool area! The condo is very spacious and comfortable. It is however up a steep hill and can ce noisey at night. These are not issues that I however am concerned with they do not bother me. I really enjoyed my stay and would book again.
De nada, Derek.
Palatial condo with phenomenal views
We enjoyed 4 wonderful nights in this conveniently located condo. It is situated above the street so there's a lot of street noise. But the flip side of that is the sweeping views from the master bedroom, living room and corner patio. And don't miss the bonus rooftop dipping pool that we pretty much had to ourselves-best place to watch the sun set or enjoy a night cap. It's a little less noisy up there, too. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need, although the food in PV is so inexpensive and delicious I'd recommend eating most meals out. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, with ample storage and lots of windows. There is a set of stairs leading down to the beach and into town so we were able to walk everywhere. The closet is fully stocked with beach and bath towels-there is also a washer and dryer. Being able to pack clean, salt and sand free clothes for the trip home was a blessing! We booked pretty last minute and Daniel, the owner, was super friendly and quick to respond to our questions and concerns prior to arrival. Once at the condo, he also provided immediate feedback to our questions about places to go and things to see. We had a fantastic time and will definitely be back. Thanks, Daniel!
So glad you enjoyed yourselves, Susan. You are welcome back anytime.
All my best,
