I've been coming to porter yard up for over 30 years areas be at Nuevo, the Marina, Hotel zone and many others but this location in the heart o old town is it hard to beat. Location is everything but this comfortable condo made our stay complete.
We arrived the Fri after Thanksgiving and stayed till next Sat. Taxi dropped us off at the restaurant and we walked up one block to the well-marked and secure entrance. We were greeted friendly and took a new elevator up to the 2nd floor condo. After that we just used the stairs unless we were going to the rooftop pool - used 4 Times. Great views and nice pool furniture - nice to get away from the beach action.
We dined mostly close to the condo - only used the micro and coffee maker. Fridge kept our drinks cold
The living room was so comfy and when you open the glass doors to expand out to the patio view of the beach and beyond. Every night was sunset night.
Bed comfy Tv worked great.
We had breakfast at C&C and Fusion near the little store. Dinners along the beach. Daquiri Dicks, C&C, La Palapa, Si Senor, Vista Grill all great. Had a great pizza and sangria at 116 Pulpito.
Spent time at Metamofosis spa for massages and other treatments nearby. Day trip to Yelapa great. Fun shopping nearby.
Liz and the staff at condo were easy to work with.
We will recommend and probably return again.
I'm hooked on Puerto Vallarta and love this condo! Every year we consider where to vacation and just keep coming back! New air conditioning units were welcome however the beautiful weather and breeze negated the use of them most of the time. Fully opening the folding doors to the balcony really extend the space and bring the outdoors in! The location and amenities of this condo are perfect and relaxed. Our only downside this year was being there during Easter break. Beaches were pretty packed. Solution... spending time at the lovely rooftop pool area. Gorgeous views and some quiet solitude. Great sunbathing and time for reading a good book. Did a lot of reading while there and swapped out a couple of books. Nice little collection for reading in your quiet time. Always great assistance from the front desk when needed and of course the daily maid service was wonderful. Already planning our next trip!
Best thing was where this appartment was. In the old town right at the start of the malecon above la palapa restaurant right on the beach. The appartment is on 2nd floor with balcony overlooking the beach. Good lift in building gets you all levels and upto 8th floor swimming pool. Extremely quiet building and surrounds, gentle music from restaurant below until about 11pm then the sound of the waves. Very good aircon and general amenities. Staff are great and kept room and building well, also 24 HR front desk. Probably typical Mexican rooms, little bit of furniture and fittings show its age but nothing a few hours of diy work not fix. 5 mins walk to main Centro bus stops which we used all the time to get to Walmart and back, also downto Nuevo Vallarta riu. Must cheaper and more interesting than taxis. Took taxi from airport as it took us nearly 2 hours to get out from flight on Saturday afternoon, it was chaos. Evidently regulars no longer fly in on Saturdays. Taxi drivers were mostly pretty honest with prices, the odd one tried it on. If you like laying around on the beach this is your place. You are situated at the very gay friendly area of town which may or may not suit. Loads of beach towels, umbrella, decent wine glasses always a good sign, beds comfortable. Only addition would be a hair drier and a safe( has a safe but only for use of owners). Not that we felt unsafe in either the appartment or area but it's something you come to expect these days. Best restaurant we went to was 116 pulpito just accross the street opposite blondies, brilliant tapas night on Mondays. Certainly would recommend this apartment.
We had a great stay. Location is perfect. Be ready for the noise of the beach.
Waves, people, and music most of the day until about 11 pm. Getting to the
beach is as easy as it gets. Great pool on roof and convenient to several restaurants .
We are a family of 3 - with our 18 year old daughter that had a lovely time in Liz's condo. The location was more than I ever hoped for - sitting on the deck overlooking the beach and ocean, listening to the waves at night, walking with a mug of coffee just outside the condo and you are on the beach. The music was mellow and relaxing and never bothered at all. Comforting to have 24 hour security, luxury to have daily maid service and large bottle clean water, private with 2 bed and bathrooms for 3 of us and very friendly guests we met on the relaxing warm deckpool. Highly recommended and hope to rent from Liz again soon.
Great location,wonderful staff ,very friendly town!Taxi service was a breeze,making movement about town very easy,but all you need is within walking distance,
