Response Time within 24 hours.

John & Donna Rothel purchased this condo in 1991

Why John & Donna Rothel chose Marina Vallarta

We purchased this property because we had 4 young children at the time and trying to find a hotel where we would all fit comfortably was becoming impossible. We purchased about 10 months before Velas was opened. Our children are now grown with children of their own (we currently have 8 grandchildren under the age of 7) and they visit us frequently.

Velas is located in the Marina area - we are close to restaurants, grocery stores, banks, spas etc.

Wonderful visit to PV!

  • 5 of 5

John and Donna were great hosts! Extremely communicative and responsive to questions prior to our arrival! The condo worked perfectly for 3 adult couples as they were able to put the twin beds together in the front room prior to us arriving! The condo is in a great location, just a short walk to the Marina area which is full of restaurants, bars and shops! We really enjoyed our time in Puerto Vallarta and look forward to our next visit!

Absolutely Stunning Condo at Velas Vallarta - Wish i didnt have to leave !

  • 5 of 5

Just came back from 2 weeks at this beautiful condo. We were 3 adults and 2 children under 6. Having rented from other owners in the past in the same hotel, this unit was by far the best! Bright , Clean and Beautifully decorated and the most comfortable bed ever. There are also beautiful TV's with lots of English channels. John And Donna and their property manager were an absolute pleasure to deal with and everything was seamless from meeting the property manager at the airport to checkout. We will definitely be going back! I would recommend this unit to anyone. A big plus was that the kitchen was stocked with everything you could think of even scissors which was a plus. Was an absolute wonderful time and I definitely recommend this place.

Everything you need

  • 5 of 5

It was our second time at the Velas and the first time in Donna and John's unit.

The complex is really the best, especially when you travel with kids. Not too big, plenty of pools and amazing grounds.

The service is outstanding.

The condo is on the 2nd floor which we really like since you do not need to wait for elevators and with kids it's easy for them to come and go as they want.

seems like Donna and John have kids and-or grandkids since there was everything one could think of... a pack-n-play, a walker, a high-chair, swim vests...

The condo is nicely decorated and feels really cozy.

John was so helpful with providing information prior to our arrival and following up during our stay to make sure all was taken care of for our check out.

Highly recommended. would go back in a heart beat!

thanks again for making our vacations memorable.
