Grand Marina Villas, Paradise Village

Hi,

Looking into staying here in July. Has any stayed in these villas? How far are they from the beach? Is it walking distance. Seems like the one I am looking has a view of the marina. Have not booked but looking for a rental for 9 people (5 adults and 4 children) - looking for a family friendly place, with great pools and a great beach to swim. Would like to go to downtown PV and bucerias - do you think I would need to rent a car or just take taxi or bus? Thanks for you help!

Grand Marina Villas is a great place to stay with beautifull pools,hot tub and a barbeque as well.rooms are large and very clean and modern.Bonus is a small mall next door with a grocery store,resturants as well as some shops to shop in etc.The beach club is a short 6 or 7 min.walk across the street to the Playa Royal beach resort which has a beautiful beach,beach resturant ,tons of palapas ,pool etc.,etc.You will need to pay a daily fee to get in here or purchase a beach club membership if you plan on going to the beach regularly.the membership will save you money versus a daily fee.As far as a car goes,not needed at all.Bus service is next door at the mall,taxis are cheap and many restaurants close and some within short walk.Also the casino is a 5 minute walk as well.Hope this answered most of your questions.

Looking forward to your report. We love Paradise Village but have only ever stayed at the main resort. The marina villas look really nice and I'm sure you'll have a wonderful time. Make sure to walk down the main road about 15 minutes north and have supper at Fajita Republic.

Could you please let me know what you paid for the pass? We are staying here in Aug and after doing some research, I have heard some disturbing news regarding access to the beach. Thx!

I believe it is approx. $15 a week per person.

The cost of the sports club temporary membership is about 200 pesos and it is valid for up to a month.

We are going to pay approximately $140 for a week for 4 children and 5 adults. I thought this is quite reasonable.
