Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
Married and have four daughters, (yes four!). I am a college instructor and my wife is a Registered Nurse.
Why Doug chose Nuevo Vallarta
The very first trip we took to Mexico we stayed across the street at a resort. We had our 4 daughters with us and were looking for a place that could offer everything for a family as well as a romantic getaway for my wife and myself. Since then we have stayed a various places on both coasts of Mexico but this was the one location that offered the most for our family. It has the best beach in Mexico for whatever the family wants to do. Charter a fishing boat from the marina right at the condo for a day to experience a private beach on the islands, whale watching from early December on, fish on the way home and cook the daily catch for dinner. For my wife and daughters shopping awaits them while a try my best at El Tigre Championship Golf Course. As part of the Paradise Village Group the amenities are second to none when it comes to relaxing at the spa or using the many sports facilities. The dining and food choices are unlimited from fast food for the kids to romantic dinners for my wife and I. We have a list of all our favourite restaurants which we will be more than happy to share with you. Bucerias is a small town to the north, old town PV to the south have with many great restaurants and are just a short cab ride. Once you come you will return many times and who knows we might be neighbours some day!

Gord and Sheila
The condo was perfect and the complex (Grand Marina Villas) was fantastic!
I don’t know where to start everything was better than described;
Dave & Doug the owners were great to deal with and even help us plan our activities and places to dine out.
Our stay at the property was wonderful. The resort is very clean and safe, gated 24/7 security. It was very quiet for our vacation so lots of pool chairs to be had. We enjoyed the BBQ Palapa a few nights and took our required items down there and ate and cooked our meals.
The new mattress and pillows were amazing. The new TV and Blu-ray were an added amenity but we did not watch much TV and we just went out to a few recommended restaurants within walking distance.
All in all it really was a relaxing and lovely condo and complex. Well priced for the amenities and location. I would recommend the Social Membership to take advantage of the pristine beach club, fitness facilities and spa, (we do not golf but the course looked amazing).
Thank you for sharing it with us.
Thank you for letting us share our condo with you. Our complex is second to none for being well maintain, clean and safe for our family and friends.
Getting ready for our retirement, we have been doing many upgrades to our condo and still love to share them with are guests. Take care and thanks for the referrals!
Paradise Village Indeed!
July 2016 was the third time I have stayed here. The pride of ownership is apparent in this condo. The owner is constantly upgrading – new paint, fans, and TVs. It is a well-appointed and well-stocked condo. You will lack for nothing. The grounds and common areas are immaculate and well maintained - beautiful pool, impressive gardens, and a palapa where you can barbeque. Joining the Beach club is a must! There are several facilities that you can access for very reasonable cost. The staff at the condo is very friendly and accommodating - always a smile on their faces and warm greetings.
I heartily recommend this condo. I have already booked another visit this year.
Lizz, thank you for you kind words and for letting us share our condo with your family. The staff at our property are second to none and take very good care of our guests & take great pride in keeping the grounds and common areas in fantastic shape. I do enjoy my morning walks around the property as I am always met with smiling faces of the staff and Antonio the concierge/guard is second to none.
I am heading down for spring break and thanks for booking this summer again.
A Fantastic Vacation in Nuevo Vallarta
Thanks for the opportunity for me to get to Puerto Vallarta. What a place, we did enjoy our stay in your home away from home and appreciated having a washer/ dryer and a full fridge. The new ceiling fans on the deck made it very enjoyable to spend the day outside playing cards with our new found friends. We were impressed by the cleanliness of your condo and the common spaces. The pool, facing the beautiful boats in the marina surrounded by the immaculate maintained grounds has been the nicest I have seen at a private condo. The courtesy of the staff was over the top and Antonio is such an asset to the villas and happily answered every question we ask him.
We also loved the fact that we were 3 minutes walk from the grocery store and 10 minutes from the beach club. We did not eat out much but your restaurant list was a added bonus taking the stress looking for a place to have a bit to eat.
Hope to return again someday soon. Take care
Thank you for letting us share our condo with you. I am returning to my 2nd home in 2 weeks and cannot wait. The staff at our condo take great pride in keeping the grounds and common areas in fantastic shape. Everyone that has reviewed their stay has commented on Antonio and how his willingness to help with all your questions and concerns. Glad you enjoyed your vacation and hope to hear from you soon.
A lovely relaxing vacation in a beautfiul setting!
We throughly enjoyed our vacation in Doug's condo. The location was perfect, the condo nicely furnished and the full kitchen well stocked. We loved the large fridge with ice & water dispenser and washer/dryer. The lounge chairs on the patio were a plus and put to good use. The pool and grounds were kept in immaculate condition. The flowers and shruberry were spectacular. Antonio, the gatekeeper was so welcoming each and every time we entered the complex. Doug provided a wealth of information to us and was most helpful in answering any questions we had. He was easy to deal with and an attentive owner. We were pleasantly surprised to receive a "welcome home" email upon our arrival at our home.
Bev, thank you for you kind words and for letting you share our condo with you. The staff at our property are second to none and take very good care of our guests & condo. We also spend a great deal of time on the patio so this past summer we added the ceiling fans, new furniture and art work to make it an extension to the condo. Have a great Christmas & New Year, talk soon.
Another Perfect Vacation!
This has been my 4th stay at the Paradise Village Grand Marina Villas, (the 3rd stay with Doug) and I am officially hooked! As always I was greeted by Antonio the guard and I was very impressed he remembered me by name. Dropped the luggage off at the condo, walked the beautiful grounds and chatted with the gardeners. The grounds were as beautiful as before and the 2 pools look amazing as they have been retiled to show the deep "blue" water.
The condo was perfect, better than before the new TV & BluRay was an added bonus as I am a hockey fan! The free WIFI in the common area was upgraded and you can use your iPad & phone around the pool area right to the marina. The condo administration staff and both guards were very helpful to all my wants & needs.
I took advantage of the Social Membership offered with the condo rental and the fitness facilities were second to none. The equipment was all new and the lap pool was mine to myself. The beach club had A/C in the changing rooms, an adult pool, kids pool, hot tub, lots of loungers on the beach and a great restaurant & bar to get a snack & drink.
I would not hesitate to recommend this condo to any of my friends.
Thanks for the kind words and letting us share our piece of paradise with you. When I was down this past May they retiled the pool and when it was finished when I returned in July it looked fantastic especially at night with the new underwater lights. Antonio the guard/concierge has been there since the condo was new and knows the area very well. No matter what your wants or needs are he will help you and does it with a smile every day.
Not sure if you noticed the new playground area at the beach club for the toddlers as well. The Paradise Village Group does an amazing job at keeping the whole community looking beautiful. The new TV and Bluray player were a request from my daughters, told me I had to "get with the times", but I asked them who has time to watch TV in Paradise!
Hope to hear from you soon to plan your next trip
