Overview

About the property

1 BR, Spacious, 1,296 SF, 5 diamond condo

So far the best resort I've seen in the whole Puerto Vallarta area. Better than 5 stars, rated as 5 diamonds in several of the towers but some of the towers are only 4 diamonds depending on which tower you're booked in.

The amenities and benefits are long and impressive.

Besides 1 mile of private beach in front, besides 18 gourmet restaurants and 20 bars, besides a lazy river which you must experience, besides 2 championship golf courses (extra charge to use), extensive children's pools/playground area, massive spa & gym, shopping mall on site it has so much more. You can spend your whole 7 days not leaving the resort and be completely satisfied. It is a destination resort not just a place to sleep after you've taken in all the other Puerto Vallarta activities. It's almost a shame to only stay 7 days. Stay longer if you can.

This spacious 1 bedroom condo has it all including full kitchen, granite countertops, modern "Euro" cabinets, Dining Room table, 2 couches, each with sleeper sofa, double sink vanity, separate jetted tub and shower room in the master, extra half bath, and spacious private deck with soaker pool on the deck.

This in additional to long list of amenities the resort has to offer. Let me see if I can even remember them all.

1) All the ambience for a romantic getaway.

2) Everything you need to spend sun and water soaking time at the beach and/or miles of pools and hot tubs.

3) Play golf everyday. Even has an academy to take lessons. That's what I go for. If you do golf, I can get you my members only 30% green fees discount.

4) Fine dining you want? Try 18 gourmet restaurants and 20 bars all in the grounds.

5) Shopping mall in the resort.

6) 1 mile of private beaches.

7) The Spa and Gym is one of the best I've ever seen, anywhere.

8) Entertainment. Live shows and live concerts every night in the Santaurio, a very impressive centrally located venue.

9) Or if sailing, fishing, jetsking is your thing, the marina is within walking distance.

FAQ

Can we check in any day of the week?

All Mayan Resorts check in dates are on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday for 7 nights.

What is the maximum number of people allowed in each unit?

One bedroom suite: 4 adults and 2 children

Studio: 2 adults and 2 children under 12

Is babysitting available and are there any children’s programs offered?

Babysitting can be arranged during the day and in the evening. Mayan Resorts are truly kid friendly, with fun children’s programs all day and evening activities as well.

Is there a grocery store at the resort?

Yes, there is a small store on property. We usually make one or two trips to a nearby grocery store for better selection and prices, although you do not need to. A shuttle and cabs are available.

Is there internet access?

Yes, all resorts have internet access throughout the properties – fees and quality may differ between resorts.

Is the kitchen fully equipped?

Yes, there is a medium size refrigerator, cooktop, microwave, toaster, blender, coffee maker, pots and pans, china, glasses and cutlery.

Is an all-inclusive option offered?

No, at this time the resort does not offer an all inclusive plan.

Is there a fee for use of the spa?

For Grand Mayan guests, the use of the spa is included.

Yes, you can find less expensive resorts but you can't get this quality and not at this price. You will be glad you splurged and went with Vidanta. It will a vacation and getaway you won't forget.

Housekeeping twice per day!!!!! How's that for service.

The one I advertised here is my favorite floor plan because the bigger kitchen, bedroom, double sink vanity and jetted tub.

However, if you don't need to be as indulgent as me then I have a smaller 1 bedroom available for only $850 per week or even a studio, (still bigger and nicer than a hotel room) for only $650. Just let me know what you need.

About Michael Rohland

We went to Puerto Vallarta on a cruise and stayed for a few hours and loved it. We said to ourselves we needed to come back. In 2016 we did and bought this condo. Stay with us until we are able to move to Puerto Vallarta full time.

Michael Rohland purchased this condo in 2016

Why Michael Rohland chose Nuevo Vallarta

Nowhere I've seen is a resort so complete, so decked out, so extravagant and touching on the complete gambit of getaway themes as this place does. It's a complete deal.

Great service. Housekeeping twice per day!!!

What makes this condo unique

1 mile of private beaches. The first reason you came in the first place. But there are many wonderful beachfront resorts in Puerto Vallarta so I need to give you more distinctions.

Full kitchen to accommodate your longer term stay. Grocery deliver available. Grocery shopping very easy to do. Tomatoes are about 50 cents a pound, Avocadoes are 5 for a $1, whole already cooked chickens only $4 etc., eggs are $1 for a dozen. Stock it all in the kitchen.

Be lazy. Get on the inner tube and smolder down the long lazy river while your sipping a Mango Margarita.

Get in shape and do long walks on the pristine grounds, head to the gym for a workout, get a massage or play golf on one of the two golf courses. Since, I'm not as good as a golfer as you I'll just go to the Golf Academy and get lessons with my Membership I get 30% off.

Rekindle your relationship with all the quiet spots around or have a romantic dinner at one of the 18 gourmet restaurants on site, all in walking distance I might add.

If something is not in walking distance the electric cart resort taxi service will take you where you need to go.

Entertainment ever night at the Santaurio.

Property was beautiful! Not a very good check in experience but worked out in the end!

  • 4 of 5

I gave it a 4 only because of our check in experience. They have you talk to the timeshare sharks before you are able to get your room number assignment. They are very pushy and if you politely decline the breakfast, they continue to push. We stood our ground and were told our room was all of a sudden ready. We got to our room and the room stunk and had a view of an abandoned building. I called and complained and was told nothing else was available. I was persistent and went down to the reception desk and they upgraded us to the grand luxxe free of charge!! Grand luxxe was absolutely gorgeous, although it was a little farther away from the action. I felt like they gave us the 1st room initially because we declined the presentation. They did say during check in that theycould not give us a room with a view because we were not owners. The owners get the views they had said.

The property is huge, but amazing. It does take a long time to get in and out and around the resort but it is a very beautiful resort. I would not hesitate to stay here again but just know to complain and be persistent if you are at all dissatisfied. There are lots of restaurants on site but I enjoyed getting out to sightsee. The marina is walking distance (10 min walk down the beach) which we discovered the morning we were leaving. We had gone to the marina for dinner earlier in the week by cab and ate at a nice Italian restaurant. Cab rides to downtown PV and Marina are about $11 each way.

Besides check in experience, everything went smoothly. Michael was wonderful to work with and place is absolutely beautiful! My kids enjoyed themselves. They loved trying all the pools.

Owner's Response: Thank you Amy. Yes, it is a great resort and property, unlike anything else, one of a kind. But I agree their over the top pushy salesmen are a blemish on an otherwise amazing resort. It is still worth it exactly as Amy described to stay at the resort despite the hassle. Just be very firm and say no to timeshare presentations offers. It is like that all over Nuevo Vallarta and Puerto Vallarta.

Owner's Response: Thank you Allison for that 5 star review. I agree the resort is more like a 7 star. I don't know any 7 star resorts in the USA but this place is simply amazing and words don't properly describe it. You have to just go there and experience it. It is why I bought into there. My wife travel a lot and this was the best place we've ever been to.

Walking on the Malecon.

Food is fantastic. Loved all that freshly caught fish. Even the beef was excellent. The chicken there is more tender and tastier than in America.

Loved going sailing.

Ziplining is a must do.
