After being harassed and goaded by the "Public Relations Staff" at the Puerto Vallarta airport (whom doubled as time share sales people) and paying an enormous amount of 260 pesos for a 20 minute ride, we finally arrived at Villa Loma Linda front lobby. We were hastily shown to our room on Saturday afternoon by staff member who did not seem to be a regular employee. After being shuffled up and down the stairs (carrying my own heavy luggage) we arrived at our studio suite sweating and tired. Our basic review of the room was small but cosy. The view of the bay was outstanding and we spent quite a few evenings sitting on the balcony watching the sunset, the boats and the birds ending their day. One issue we faced on a daily basis was the noisy traffic right below us on Highway 200. The room lacked counter space for food preparation (even though we had a gas stove and sink). We were forced to improvise on placing the toaster and coffee maker in other areas of the room. The ceiling fan needed a good cleaning. We were afraid to use it for dust on it. The air conditioner was appreciated, but the air was blowing directly in our path. The staff (especially Jose) and the office administrator were very accommodating and friendly. The pool area was good but very quiet. We missed having a bar for refreshments during the day or evening. The water in the pool was extremely cold. The big gripe we had with the villa is the amount of climbing up and down the pathway to get back to the villa suite. We would not recommend this resort to anyone who has mobility issues or find it hard to climb hills or steps.
