First, let me just way this is a great condo complex in a great location. It's our 3rd time to PV and I'd say If you're going to stay in the old town of PV I would definitely recommend Selva Romantica.
-Location - only 3 blocks from Los Muertos Beach, Olas Altas, etc.
-Very reasonable prices
-Newer building (about six years old I was told) so most units are immaculate with lots of features - flat screen TVs, AC, WiFi, nice furnishings, etc.
-Great infinity pool with an awesome view of the Old Town, the bay, etc. and lots of sun
-Quiet both day and night - most tenants seem to be 40+
-Laundry machines available if they are not in your unit.
-It's an uphill walk to the hotel.
-No elevators and some of the buildings in the complex are several stories.
-The pool is not heated (COLD!)
-It's not a hotel: No bar tender, no room service, no front desk (you'll have to rely on your owner or property manager).
Regarding Paraiso #4, it is a studio condo we rented through a property management site. The unit is actually quite good. Except the BED - is constructed as a wood platform and the wood settles once you lay on it for a couple minutes. Then every time you move or change positions (which, if you're like me, is often due to the firmness of Mexican beds) the bed would make a LOUD creaking/popping/cracking noise which woke me up at least six times a night. I really couldn't sleep well and I spent much of my vacation under-rested. I would strongly recommend against renting this unit until they replace the bed. I put a picture of the offending bed so you know which one to watch for. Still, a good unit, and once they do something about the bed I'd recommend it because its close to the pool.
