Wonderful property! We could not have enjoyed it more! We spent two weeks in our Shangrila!
The unit is beautiful and John and his property manager Mercedes are such awesome people to work with! Talk about spoiled ... this condo unit has everything you could possibly desire! The food is awesome and very inexpensive and we loved the fact that we were able to get room service all day long. The staff there could not be more accommodating. We love both the rooftop pool and the lower pool and spent most of our time there.
The Best PV Vacation Rental You'll Find
There have been so many glowing reviews of this property and I can say that these reviews are warranted. This is is a 5-star, full-service experience and we are thankful to John for hosting us. If you are looking for a super clean, superbly outfitted, gorgeous property close to the Romantic Zone in a full-service building with multiple pools, beautiful views and restaurants that serve delicious and affordable food, you have found the right place.
Here are my family's favorite things:
Views - gorgeous views of the Pacific right from the spacious balcony.
Balcony - comfortable furniture for dining and relaxing. You will spend your time there.
Music - an awesome Sonos system that delivered surround-sound music on the balcony or the living room
Beds - extremely comfortable with quality linens
Kitchen and baths - super clean.The kitchen had plenty of cookware, kitchen electrics and dishes for us to use. Very well-stocked.
Pools - there are 2 pools on this property and they both deliver relaxing experiences. The views from the rooftop pool were breathtaking with the wide swath of the bay, Pacific ocean and downtown PV in your sights.
On-site restaurant - Delicious, super, super affordable (yes, the prices deserve two supers) that you can eat at either pool OR in your room. Yes, the restaurants deliver to your room. The convenience of this cannot be underestimated.
Location - we were 5 minutes and $2.50 Uber rides from the Romantic Zone shops and restaurants. One night we strolled along the Malecon back towards our bldg. We walked back along the beach (via a very short rocky path) and emerged on the beach that is beneath the condo. The condo is also close enough to walk along the road (Santa Barbara, not the busy, main road) into town.
Beach - as mentioned in previous reviews there is a small beach beneath the condo. The waves are strong and there are quite a few large rocks in the water making swimming not for the faint of heart. However, it is a beautiful cove and when we wanted to put our toes in sand with a cold drink it was perfect. There are also some short hikes up the rock formations that seemed to be popular. But it was never crowded.
Concierge/Security - the teams were professional and helpful and we always felt safe and secure I scheduled a massage ($500 pesos/hr) and the treatment was excellent and comfortable in the buildings spa room.
I would rent this unit in this bldg again with no hesitation.
Tanya, thank you for such a comprehensive review. It pretty much touches everything. All I can say is that we pride ourselves in creating amazing experiences for any guests that includes the little things that can distract like; having to buy spices because you want to cook, putting up with uncomfortable beds, etc. So glad that you were able to enjoy what PV has to offer. See you back soon … John
True luxury in Puerto Vallarta
John's condo is amazing!
If you think the online pictures of the condo are beautiful, just wait until you step into the condo! The luxury and beauty that awaits you is even better! While our trip started off with lost luggage and frustration, our rental car driver told us that Sayan Beach is the "Beverly Hills of Puerto Vallarta". He was right. It was easier to handle my lost bag troubles when we entered the condo and saw the beautiful view of the bay from our balcony. The sunsets were breathtaking!
This condo, its amenities and all of the staff was the highlight of our trip. John has thought of everything-beach towels, chairs, well equipped kitchen and even with spices.
Communication between John and his property manager , Mercedes was very easy.
1)Staff was great-always polite, helpful and very grateful for the tips. Always felt safe. The front gate is staffed 24/7. We had a spot for our rental car in a covered garage. Everything was very well maintained and clean.
2)The condo restaurant was very affordable and delicious. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. There is a bar also on the roof top pool. We only used our kitchen a couple of times for breakfast.
3)The beach in front of the condo is small and more secluded. The sound of waves crashing was wonderful. We were able to go snorkeling a little. There is a rock formation that separates the property from the main beach of Los Muertos, but there's a path through it if you don't mind climbing (2-3 mins). Otherwise , you can walk into town on the cobble street in front of the condo (5-10 mins).
4)Work out room is well equipped.
5) The infinity pools are amazing-especially the rooftop pool!
6) we had a rental car so we were able to go to Walmart and Costco which was able 20-25 mins away. Driving is not easy in Puerto Vallarta-different rules or feels like no rules at times . My husband has driven in many countries and he thought it was difficult.
If you get the opportunity to rent John's condo, do not hesitate!
Beautiful condo and location!
We loved our stay at Sayan Beach in Puerto Vallarta! The condo was immaculate and fit our family’s needs perfectly. The view was outstanding and we loved watching sunsets from the balcony. John was wonderful to work with and made sure everything went smoothly. The staff at the condo were amazing-so kind and accommodating. Check in and check out were a breeze. The restaurant was very good and had reasonable prices. We ate there several times during our stay. We also ate at many of the restaurants in the Romantic Zone which was within walking distance. Overall we loved our stay and would stay here again!
Ryan, thanks for spending you vacation in our property. Sounds like you had a great time and did a lot. Food has really come a long way in PV, and many places even give restaurants back home a run for their money. Of course... who can compete with the atmosphere. Hope to see you again soon! … John
We had a great experience staying at this location. The pools were amazing, condo was spacious and amazing views. The check in/out process was so smooth. They helped us to arrange a cook to come in and prepare an authentic Mexican dinner as well which was amazing.
Michelle, so glad you enjoyed your stay and that you took advantage of the in room chef services. There is so much to do and experience in PV that you can really tailor your stay for what you really want. Every time we go, we do something new. … John
Beautiful Property! Wonderful Owner/Manager!
We had such a great time at John's property. The booking process was smooth and information for arrival and departure were easy. Mercedes is a great house manager and even had groceries we asked for ready upon arrival. She responded quickly as did John to any questions. The property is exactly as described but the pictures do not do it the justice it deserves. Walkable to Los Muertos and Old Town easily on the beach with a bit of climbing up stairs from the beach side or a walk on the cobblestone-Or a $2.50 Uber ride. Everything you need is close. The condo provided everything, beach chairs, floats, towels for the pool-- although the pool also has towels for use. The onsite restaurant was very reasonable for food and drinks and will deliver to you anywhere on the property. Stay here for a relaxing and beautiful vacation!!
Christine, sounds like you had a fantastic time. Hard not to in this location. As you stated we are close to everything you want or need. Glad you also took advantage of our manager's shopping for you ahead of time. That is a convenient added benefit for anyone. Come back soon... John
