About Amy Welch

Mexico is wonderful - the first thing people ask is, 'Is it safe?' We have driven all through Mexico and have had wonderful experiences from Merida to San Miguel de Allende, the Copper Canyon, Guadalajara, Zacatecas, Oaxaca, and throughout the Puerto Vallarta region. Come experience the magic of Mexico - the food and people are fantastic and welcoming.

Guestbook comments from the manager

​Had a great time, condo was perfect...probably the best one I've stayed in and I've stayed in a few in the condo complex over the last 20 years. My friends Oktay and Trish were jealous as they have stayed there too lol. They're leaving today. Would love to book it tentatively again in April.

A Most Excellent View

  • 4 of 5

We were delighted with our most restful stay in Mismaloya about 40 minutes south of Puerto Vallarta. Our off-season visit was quieter than usual with some amenities closed for the holiday and season. However, great grocery stores like Sorianas made meal preparation in the well equipped condo enjoyable. We learned to take the local bus back and forth to the city...easy. The Zoo offered an afternoon of fun and exercise as we walked back and forth. We also took a day trip with Vallarta Ventures on the catamaran to snorkel and see the coastal sights. The beach was small and in Mismaloya we felt a bit isolated at times. But we will never forget the views and sunsets.

Nice Condo, Terrible Staff Avoid!

  • 2 of 5

Although we rated this at a 1 to 2 star rating, the condo itself is a 5+! The condo is beautiful, well outfit with fantastic new or relatively new granite counter tops, large refrigerator, large screen TV, everything you could ask for in a rental condo and spotlessly clean, with fantastic views from the very wonderful deck overlooking the bay and towards the Night of the Iguana movie set.

The reason for the low rating is: 1) we should have been told there was no restaurant or bar. Although it apparently is open during the "high season". So there was no where to get even a beer or margarita, although you could walk into the little town to buy both. 2) But the MAIN reason of the low rating is the front desk staff. First of the several times we visited the front desk there was no one there period, however there was a security guard at the gate, when we did ask someone to come to the desk they were noticeably annoyed at being disturbed from having to come to the front desk. When there was a person at the front desk, they were possibly the rudest, coldest front desk people we have come across in our numerous trips to the PV area including several other parts of Mexico. Honestly the worst we have ever had the unfortunate experience to meet. We would not recommend this complex only because of the staff not the condo itself.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write - positive or negative. Glad you liked the condo. I did send a 65 page booklet about the area, including best beaches, restaurants, grocery stores, etc. It did mention that generally the restaurant at the condo, opens in Nov. But it's a lot to absorb when you're on vacation. I'm a bit surprised at the response you got by the front desk as usually people say that one of the reasons to come back to Mismaloya is because the staff is so welcoming. In the future, should you have any difficulties, contact the owner or property manager who rented you the condo - right away. That way the owner/prop mgr can run interference for you and find out what is the problem. Your review here is the first time I've heard of any problems with your stay or with the management. We are glad that you liked the condo and the lovely view.

Beautiful, Quiet, Fully Stocked Kitchen

  • 5 of 5

This unit is beautiful, quiet, full 24/7 security with views of Mismaloya bay and the Pacific ocean from the balcony. We saw dolphins, pelicans, fish, cranes from the balcony. We had gated access to the beach with snorkeling, jet skis, restaurant, bar and massage and small boat tours to Los Arcos, Yelapa, etc. There's a poolside restaurant and bar service during peak season, beginning in November. Onsite there is a pool, two hot tubs, gym, tennis court, ping pong and pool table. Bus stop and taxis right out the front door. This unit is recently remodeled with everything you could ever need; fully stocked kitchen with a dishwasher, king size bed, TVs, stereo, DVD player, cards, games, etc. This unit is close to a second secluded hot tub overlooking the bay. We loved this unit!

Despite it's distance from downtown Puerto Vallarta (10 minute taxi ride) there's a lot to do nearby; El Eden, Canopy zip line, zoo, Botanical gardens, horseback rides and Los Arcos small boat snorkeling, fishing and/or scuba tours. The small boats are willing to do longer excursions on request.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Great location, but the unit itself is beginning to show its age. Shower doors leak, 4 of the 7 knobs on the stove are broken (particularly irksome with the oven as it's impossible to determine the temperature!), the dishwasher broke during our 2nd week. A new one was delivered during our final week, but it was not installed and we had to navigate around a large crate in the middle of the dining area for the balance of our stay. However, we were not there to live indoors! The property and the pool are immaculate; the staff are very friendly (unless you have to deal with Raphael who kowtows to the owners and dismisses renters when he's having a bad day!), and the on site restaurant and its owner Pablo are a treat. Being in Mismaloya is far enough away from PVR to escape the hub-bub, but close enough to get into town with ease. I would definitely recommend it. Again, the beautiful location far out weighs any deficits.

Beautiful, relaxing, friendly vacation spot.

  • 5 of 5

This condo is located on a cliff with the ocean waves crashing on the rocks right below you...very relaxing to sit on the patio and listen as the sound relaxes you. You will also see turtules, colorful fish, and pelicans right from your chair.

The inside of the condo has been totally renovated with new counter tops in the kitchen and stainless steel appliances Including a dishwasher. The living room has comfortable furniture, new flat screen TV and a nice music system.

In my opinion, this is the best place to stay in Puerto Vallarta. It is very safe, close to town, great friendly staff and very fun people that stay here.

Mismaloya Condos

  • 5 of 5

We have spent part or most of the severe winter months (January - February) at this lovely location overlooking the stunning beach at Mismaloya, and have booked through this owner's representative for three seasons. The unit is impeccable, up to date and well-equipped. Everything is as described, and a great value. You can stay twice as long in Mismaloya for the same peso as you can stay in Miami (if you wanted to stay in Miami that long!). Beyond the basics, however, is the congenial group of owners and renters. We have made many friends we stay in touch with and see year-to-year. The condo is a short trip to the lively town of Puerto Vallarta with restaurants galore, Margarita's at sunset and plenty to do when one wearies of the beach and the pool. Side trips from here also provide diversion for those who are adventurous. We'll be back in 2015.
