This is a fabulous apartment and location. Everything we saw in the photos and read in the description was exactly as we experienced. Amazing views, staff, facilities, location. What more can I say? Leo, the property manager greeted us at the airport and made our arrival smooth and welcoming. Margit (the owner) even had fresh guacamole, chips and beverages waiting for us! Thank you, Margit, for helping to make such it a special vacation for our family. Your hospitality and helpful advice were much appreciated. And Leo, your help was amazingly gracious. Thank you!
Our trip was in August so we expected hot and humid -- but it did not deter our enjoyment. We just headed to the pool when needed. The apartment feels extremely safe and secure. We took daily taxi rides to town which were quick and convenient. Loved the frequent evening thunder and lightning. You can walk to the port terminal for boat tours. Nearby Starbucks and grocery store are an easy walk. The pool is the most beautiful I've seen. My daughters enjoyed swimming in the ocean. The water was so warm. I hope we can return soon!

What a beautiful condo this is and the view even sitting down at the dinning table is gorgeous. The four of us (two couples) were very comfortable. The fact that the condo is really on the 3rd floor is a big plus since you don't spend too much time in the elevator and also if you feel like doing a little bit of exercise than you can take the stairs. The ICON Vallarta is very well located like everyone else said in their reviews, my husband and I personally enjoyed the fully equipped gym with its ocean front view, the extra long pool great to make laps or simply swimming, the staff who were always very friendly and helpful with us and also the fact that it is just a short taxi drive away from all the wonderful restaurants in PV that Margit (the owner) has kindly recommended. We were always thrilled and happily surprised of all her suggestions. The only thing we would do differently is that we would make reservation ahead of time (either before we get to PV or at the beginning of our stay) for tour boats or restaurant by the water since they are very popular and fully booked. The only recommendation I would give to Margit is that it would be nice if the laundry detergent was provided for the guests. Everything else was perfect... to the comfy beds and sheets, plenty of pool and shower towels (no need to bring yours) and the pots and pans in the kitchen. Mucho gracias Margit for renting out your little 'peace of paradise' for us to enjoy! We shall be back....and next time it will be for at least two weeks :-)
Beaufiful grounds, excellent staff!!! love it here, it has it all. The beach was really nice, memorable sunsets, I will be back for sure.
My family and I just returned from another wonderful vacation to PV. This was our second time staying at Icon. Margit's condo was absolutely fantastic. It was exactly as displayed in the pictures. The balcony of the unit is exceptional; great for watching sunsets, reading a book or just sitting out there at night listening to the waves crashing it. Working with Margit and Tamara made the entire process very easy. Both were extremely helpful and pleasant to deal with. This was my second stay at Icon... the place is great! Most travelers to PV who think they must stay at a hotel have no idea what they are missing. The location of Icon is perfect - very close to town and Marina - and you are not dealing with the crowds of staying at a resort, not to mention that this place is so much nicer. I could not recommend Icon more and would definitely recommend this particular condo.
Spent a week in Vallarta at the Icon.
Margit has a beautiful place and in a great position. The thing that I liked most was the pools were great for swimming with the kids and the grounds and everything else were always very clean. The staff there were very helpful and friendly. Had a great time......
Superlatives are way overused today but in this case it's appropriate. ICON is simply stunning. Every condo is great, the 3 double- olympic size pools are amazing and the private beach is perfection. Add location and impeccable service and staff and it simply doesn't get any better. My tastes are simple, I like only the best. For once, we got it in ICON.
