“Beautiful grounds!”
Reviewed 20 April 2013

We have been going to PV for the last 10 years & have stayed in another condo on the beach. This year (2013) we decided to try Selva Romantica & we definatley were not sorry!! The first 10 days we stayed in a 1 bedroom penthouse condo. Was very homey & comfortable. We faced the mtn. which was very nice & had a ocean/pool view from the juliet balcony from the bedroom. This condo had everything from washer/dryer to dishwasher! The condo was beautiful! We then moved over & stayed in Amazonas 7 & it was beautifully decorated & had a very warm feeling. It also had washer/dryer but no dishwasher. The bedrooms were huge & very comfortable for sleeping! The terrace was so relaxing to lounge around & the view was incrediable! If you plan to stay there use the BBQ that is on the terrace. The staff there are wonderful! Can't say enough about them!! The only negative thing about this condo is the 2 couches in the living room. Each one splits into 2 separte seats & becomes very uncomfortable after awhile as you have to keep pushing them back together.

The pool was the most relaxing,warm pool I have ever been in! We loved the quietness of the area & when we wanted to visit our friends on the beach with all the local action, we just took a short walk down to the beach area.

We definately are coming back in 2014!

Booking with the owner was very easy and she was very helpful. We stayed in Safari 10 that had nice partial ocean/city view. We could see the sun set from the kitchen balcony and it felt very secure being on the 3rd floor relative to street level. The complex was located in a central location at the top of the hill with many walkable short cuts to different parts of town. It was close enough to the restaurants and tourist areas but far enough away that the noise from revelers did not disrupt our sleep.

We really enjoyed our stay there. The kitchen was well stocked for us to cook breakfast every morning. The ceiling fans in the room was also sufficient in keeping things cool without having to use the AC.

The best amenity at the complex was the infinity pool. It was quiet and relaxing with many lounge chairs to choose from. We did morning laps with maybe only 2 others in the pool.

We stayed 5 nights and we only had one compliant. The grounds keeper with his leaf blower starting working at 7am! It woke us up abruptly two mornings - way too early while on vacation and the noise continued as he walked around the entire complex for an hour.

Room Tip: Safari #10 unit had a nice view from the kitchen balcony and easy access to the gateway entry.

I would stay here for the beauty of the grounds alone let alone the nice rooms and nearness to the beach. They welcomed me and my family including my 4 year old nephew,8 month old niece and 9 month old son.

This was our first condo stay in PV, and it was absolutely wonderful. The Selva Romantica location can't be beat. You are squarely in the heart of Zona Romantica, but it still feels peaceful and secluded. The complex is about 3 blocks from Los Muertos beach/pier and just one block up from all the restaurants and nightlife on Olas Altas.

We stayed in Paraiso 6. The owners were fantastic and really made the stay comfortable and stress-free. The unit is fabulously appointed with 2 br/2ba and overlooks the city and beautiful infinity pool. It even has it's very own espresso machine. We can't wait to return.

We stayed here last January with our family and had a wonderful time. The apartment was beautifully furnished with balconies overlooking the sea. The only thing I would have likes was at least one bathtub in the apartment which has two showers, one a sit down. I a place like that I am surprised all units only have showers. Is this the norm in Mexico?
Also the swimming pool, as gorgeous as it is doesn't get deeper than my neck. Is this a new liability issue? I noticed this in Las Vegas as well. Really too bad, but still impressive nevertheless.

I live at Selva Romantica part-time and own a unit here. Just wanted to let everyone know that we have now heated the pool, so the cold pool issue is not a problem any longer! It is a wonderful, quiet oasis convenient to everything and you will not be disappointed. We now have free wi-fi at the pool, too!

This is not a hotel but a series of buildings with condos in them. We stayed in the Casa de Dante in the Amazonas building and it was wonderful. The views from this corner, 2 bedroom unit were spectacular as you could see all of the city and Banderas Bay, and the pools, hot tub and gardens are what sold us on renting in this place. And now we here that it has been approved to have the pool heated next year FOR SURE!! It is located up the hill from the El Dorado beach area. A great escape from the hustle and bustle of Old Town and the Beach, peaceful and quiet during the day. At night....well that all depends on which unit you are in as to your location. For us, it was very noisy at night, as we were fairly high up in the building and facing the city. BUT still worth it. We are returning for 3 weeks next year, already booked, so I figured I would let the secret out of one of the most beautiful places to stay in Old Town in my opinion.

Room Tip: Our third week here we moved to a studio on the side facing the hill....very quiet at night and the...
