Just got back from PV. Stay at Villas Loma Linda was nice. I know that Villas denies the need for air-conditioning, but I do not agree. Maybe if you stay there from Oct-May you might not, but if you stay is during June-Aug. you definitely need air-conditioning. It was soooo humid sometimes it was like a sauna, even with all the doors and window open.
The room was very nice. Bathrooms were big. Master bath had large jacuzzi tub. The view was spectacular from the balcony !! We stayed in C7 (what we called the penthouse) 2 bd. condo with jacuzzi on the balcony. Since it was a timeshare exchange we did pay an extra $100 to have a room with a jacuzzi. (my husband called in advance to request this). We had to pay the $100 cash when we got there, they would not take a credit card? Not sure if this was a scam. Either was it was worth the $100. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. We arrived early (1000am) and we were able to get our room at the time.
As stated before, Villas Loma Linda is situated on a very steep hill. There is tons of construction going on. The only time we were not awakened at 5:30am was on Sun. The locals only day off. Very Very noisy!!!.
To get to the beach you have to walk down 160 very steep steps. It is a major chore going back up. A taxi will cost you $4.00 to take you back. We did this several times! As you get to the beach if you go to the left you will find many umbrellas with beach chairs avail. I will warn you that the hotel were those chairs are available is a Gay/Lesbian hotel. If this does not bother you the place is great. You do have to order from the bar or meal menu to use their chairs.
All in all this place is very nice. Its a little far from the Hotel Zone, but walking distance to El Malecon (the boardwalk), where there are many shops and restaurants.
