“Nice Condo - Perfect Location”
Reviewed 13 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

My husband, my two children and I spent 8 nights at Vista del Sol and didn't want to leave. (Seriously, how do I buy a place here?).

Location: the location is amazing. Ocean views from every condo, easy beach access, close to restaurants and shops. Every morning we'd sit on the balcony, have coffee, and watch the early morning joggers and dog walkers. The front walkway/front door/kitchen sink have views of the city and mountains, which are just as lovely as the beach views.

Condo Complex: Vista del Sol is well-maintained and the staff are great. The condo complex is built in traditional style, with a central courtyard, lots of tile, plants and beautiful fountains. There is always someone at the front desk and there is also 24-hour security. Housekeeping comes 6 days a week typically (no Sundays or holidays). Elia was our housekeeper and she was very sweet. There are two washers and two dryers in the basement, but honestly it's easier to drop your clothes at a local laundromat, otherwise you feel "trapped" at your condo waiting for laundry. The salt-water rooftop pool is awesome! It's a great place to relax, get some sun, and take a break from the beach vendors. There is also a shower and bathrooms up there.

Condo Itself: This particular condo still has the original, traditional Mexican look and feel with which it was built (many of the condos have been heavily modernized). My family and I felt that was a plus, not a negative. We loved the terra cotta floors, archways, coved ceilings, tiled counter-tops, and local wood cupboards. The condo is very spacious, and we never felt cramped. The balcony was spacious for 4 people (you won't get wet on the balcony during a rain storm either).
We didn't cook much, but there was plenty of counterspace for everything. We only used the stovetop, microwave and toaster, and all worked fine. We found enough dishes and utensils for what we wanted to cook.
The bedrooms were a very good size and the mattresses were comfortable. There is an AC unit in each bedroom (no AC in the living space).

Tips: there are two tower fans in the unit. Use these! They help pull the humidity from the air and make the space feel cooler. Use the breeze. The ocean breeze coming through the sliding door is awesome. Open the front door and kitchen window and the unit will cool down quickly.

Improvements / Suggested Changes: Maybe the condo had sat vacant for a while before our arrival, but several things had a mildew smell. I'm sure this is a hazard of high humidity areas. The throw pillows on the couch and the bedspread in the 2nd bedroom needed a wash (thankfully the kids didn't notice).
As another reviewer stated, some sort of black-out curtain in the master bedroom would be appreciated. Some people like to sleep in on vacation. :)
The showers need shower curtains. Period. I know the showers weren't designed that way, but it's something that can be remedied. The secondary shower could accommodate a standard shower rod. For the master bath, a couple heavy-duty eye hooks and heavy picture wire would work to string a shower curtain on. Water really went everywhere, and not to the built-in drain. I felt guilty using so many towels to clean up the floors.
Also, several lights either didn't work at all or had light-bulbs that were burned out. Not a big deal in the living space, but crucial in the bathrooms where there is no natural light.
The refrigerator had expired items in it. I'm sure that well-meaning vacationers don't want to throw out usable food before they leave, but someone has to be responsible for cleaning out food from the fridge and cupboards. It attracts bugs.
General clutter: some of this is similar to the fridge. There was a lot of stuff in the bathroom cupboards - half used bottles of shampoo, sunscreen, razor blades, deodorant, etc. Same for the bedroom storage. A thorough clean-out would be very useful.

I have stayed here many times over several years. This is one of three places I've stayed in Puerto Vallarta and is by far the best. The location is central to everything, the rooms are spacious and have everything you need. This sits right on the beach and every room has a magnificent view. The staff is also very friendly and accommodating. My significant other and myself generally travel with another couple, and there is also more than enough room for everyone.

“Beautiful, very large beachfront condo”

I stayed for 2 weeks with my sister. They are all 2 bedroom 2 bath condos here and are about 1550 sq ft. I was on the 9th floor because I like to have a great view and I certainly did. 904 was on the north side of the building and the balcony was on the side with an ocean view. Watched the lightning storms over the bay every night without getting wet. The condo was so beautifully decorated that it felt more like home than a condo or hotel. It was low season so the general area noise level was higher than in Jan - Mar but so what. I was told that this is the season that repairs, and construction occurs. Then again it was only a week after hurricane Odele. I would certainly return if I wanted a 2 bedroom condo. Maid service was Mon - Sat. There was a 5 gal bottled water dispenser in the kitchen for 30 pesos/bottle. There are security guards at the entrance 24/7. I think the rooftop pool was damaged during the hurricane so it was not open during my stay. The Sea Monkey is the bar/restaurant in the 1st floor however it is not affiliated with the condo. Great food, always people to talk with at the bar and $1 Coronas and Margaritas all day every day.
