The condo was exactly as advertised with high end cutlery and cooking utensils.
It was very clean and the bed really comfortable. Since the condo is on the second floor, (there is parking, gym and utility areas below which makes it about 6 floors above the Amapas street) we had enough breezes without needing the AC. The ceiling fans helped a lot too. This is an adult only condo. The roof garden has a heated pool with a shaded sitting area with wet bar and stools as well as comfortable sofas, and is well maintained.
There are two entrances, one off the lower street with quite a bit of a hill the other main entrance is on a highway with a small walking path that leads to a Subway eatery. Take a left turn and use the funicular down the hill and you are right downtown. The beach is not visible from the location,it is about a 15 min. walk downhill. Try out the Saturday market! Denis is a very affable owner who responds to emails pronto.
This condo is on the south side of the Romantic Zone, a short distance from the pier. The unit itself was first rate, very clean. It has a water view, although buildings in front prevent it from having a beach view. It is a short walk to downtown. Walking back to our condo from downtown is uphill and may be uncomfortable if you aren't in moderately decent shape.
We highly recommend staying downtown in preference to the hotel zone.
Our rental was just as lovely as it appeared online and had everything we needed. We were so comfortable there, we didn't even bother to do the typical tourist side trips we had planned to do. We just enjoyed the sights and sounds of the ocean from our balcony, ate at the many restaurants along the Malecon, lounged around the pool, caught up on our sleep and our reading and generally just enjoyed being together....all things that we don't get to do very often back in Wisconsin. Returned home completely relaxed!
The location is amazing. My experiece with the owner and property mangers was fantastic. Everything is within walking distance of the unit. The only reason I give this fours stars rather then five has nothing to do with the unit itself, rather what was going on around the unit at the time we stayed. There was contruction activity ongoing on three buildings that were directing adjacent to our deck. This diminished our ability to enjoy the deck somewhat. That being said I would definatly rent this unit again, ablbeit after the surrounding construction is complete.
The condo is complete with everything you will need for enjoying your vacation. The location is up the hill from sea level, so your view is 180 degrees. Both the beach and "downtown" are a short walk away. If you are traveling to Puerto Vallarta, the condo is in the perfect location. The owner and property manager were very helpful to us in settling in and getting to know the area (this was our first condo rental in Mexico).
This is an awesome condo with a great view of the ocean and sunset. A short walk got us to the beach, a wide range of restaurants, a small market for groceries... everything you could want while in Mexico. The building itself was very beautiful with a roof top pool/lounge area. The owner was very prompt in responding and sent us a lot of detailed information that made getting to the condo and settled very straight forward. I can't say enough positive things about this little gem of a condo.
My Mother and I just spent a week at this condo. It has a beautiful view of the ocean. I love the fact that you can open the sliding doors in the living room and enjoy the full view of the ocean and the wonderful breeze. It's in walking distance to many great restaurants and we found a little mom and pop store just two blocks from the condo. The homemade salsa and guacamole and chips were our go to snack each day. Denis and Suzanne were the best people to work with. We also both had massages at the condo by Jaasiel. He was excellent and came to our condo. The price was exceptional, make the reservation through Suzanne. It has a washer and dryer. We already booked for March, and can't wait.
