My girlfriend and I stayed at Casa de los Arcos for four nights in early October. It was our first time to Puerto Vallarta, and we cannot say enough great things about our stay. We stayed in the Casa Palapa, which had an amazing outdoor living space with a spectacular view (I saw one other casa while also there, and that one was equally amazing). We watched the sunset every night and enjoyed long breakfasts while gazing out at the ocean. The views were well worth the walk up the hill from town, and the solitude of not being directly within the city made it so much more peaceful and relaxing.
Susan and David were warm, welcoming hosts. They invited us for margaritas and appetizers the evening we arrived and brought us out on their boat to go snorkeling and tour some of the surrounding coastline. Susan organized for a cook to prepare dinner in our casa and for private massages. She also brought us to the grocery store upon arrival so that we could stock up on any items we wanted for our kitchen. We greatly enjoyed our stay and would recommend a visit to anyone! We don't tend to repeat visit places very often, but we had such a great, relaxing time on this stay that we've already mentioned we'd love to go back again.
The dogs, also, were pretty awesome and made for great boating companions!
