“Home away from home!”
Reviewed 23 September 2006

The first year we spent at Villas Loma Linda, we spent one week there and the second week at an all inclusive. We soon decided after our week at the noisy, rowdy, small roomed all inclusive that the beautiful big condo at Villas Loma Linda was more our style. We ended up going back before we left Puerto Vallarta and buying a week. We feel like we live there now when we go, we get to shop in the local grocery stores and markets, we have a beautiful bar-b-que on our patio and a wonderful hot tub from which you get an amazing view of the entire Bay of Banderas. The people are so friendly and helpful, both the staff and other residents. The pool is great and mostly we had it to ourselves or with just a couple of other people. We highly reccomend it to anyone who wants a real taste of Mexico and its people and not a cookie cutter, big resort experience. I am not saying ownership is for everyone, but even if we hadn't bought we probably would have stayed there again even on an annual rental basis as the rates are really reasonable for the amount of space you get and the amazing view.

  • Liked — Very clean, homey, and with a great view.
  • Disliked — The beds are hard, and the deck chairs are very uncomfortable, they need cushions.
  • Tips/Secrets — You need to be moderately fit or have the money to take cabs, because it is quite a hike up and down the hill.
  • Stayed October 2005, travelled as a couple

We arrived at the Villas Lomo Linda on January 27,2006. We stayed 1 night in a 1 bdrm unit then upgraded ($120.00usd/week)to a 2 bdrm the next day(4 ple)for another week. The 1 bdrm unit would've been fine but cramped. The 2 bdrm unit was fantastic! Very large, spacious, huge balcony with a private 4 person hot tub, bbq and patio set. The unit was exceptionally clean and quiet. Yes, there were a few tiny ants but after a few hours there , they were gone. There was no air conditioning(didn't need it because of the breeze all the time),no phones(who would you call anyway?)and no TV(it tells you that on their webpage). They have a common room to watch tv and a small library of pocket books to read and exchange. The pool is a good size but just a wee bit chilly. Bring your own towels to take to the beach. Full sun all day to tan but very uncomfortable lounge chairs. The personnel there are fantastic! Well informed of the how to's and what fors of PV and quite willing to help. Everybody spoke very good english--so no language barrier. Kudos to Silvia,Luc & Juan.
The only downfall to this location is if you want to go to the beach you first have to walk down to the main road which is steep, and then go down not 1 but 157 steps to hit the beach. Trust me...your calves will be screaming suicide by the 100th step. Needless to say that you will want to jump into a cab (20 pesos)to get back up to your apartment.
To go grocery shopping at the Mega or Gigante you will have to jump a bus down at the main road then switch to another bus to go north to shop. I would suggest do that and when done shopping just jump a cab back(40-60 pesos). '
All in all, we loved this place and as a bonus...the beds and pillows were just like at home here. Would we stay here again you ask! You can bet your butt we would!

Stayed January 2006

The Villas Loma Linda is a wonderful vacation spot. Well maintained with attention to detail. All units furnished beautifully and many have grills and private jacuzzis on private terraces overlooking the ocean. I have been there twice and will go again and again! Check out the website- --------

we just came back from pv, we stayed at villa loma linda. lots of ants in the bedrooms, lots of stairs with no elevators, the beach is down the hill and its very steap, not recomended for people out of shape. no restaurants or phones or tv. no clock or alarms.two bathrooms is nice. but the tubs are made of ceramic tiles and not very comfortable to bath in. no shower curtains so the water just falls to the floor into the drain. bring your own condiments. no air conditioning but good ceiling fans to keep you breezy. good view of the bay of banderas. nice pool but to deep for small children about 5"2 deep all around. no shallow end. we were dissapointed as this is suppose to be a 4 star villa timeshare.i wouldnt give it more than a 1 star however the view is worth a 5 . if you like authantic you will love this place.

My wife and I have stayed at vll 3x. The place is excellent if you are looking for a quite vacation in the old part of town. We walked to the beach each day and stayed under the palapa at La Palapa. There are not ac's, tv's or radios so be prepared for a quiet time.

Staff is friendly and helpful. The place is kept pretty clean and the maids visit each day and do the dishes. Cab rides are cheap. If you are looking for a bit of fun, take a $5 ride to the club zone.
