About the property

2 Bedrooms - King + Queen + Full Sofa / 2 Full Baths + Half Bath - SLEEPS 6

Hi:) A quick note to everyone.. We have noticed positing’s that state “Downtown Puerto Vallarta” and yet you still need a car or a taxi to get to downtown. We are 100% DOWNTOWN and DIRECTLY on the BEACH so you can walk to everything - NO car/taxi needed, just an FYI.

Beautiful, modern, water front condo, a perfect place for a great vacation. Completed in 2009 located on Camarones Beach in downtown Puerto Vallarta and just steps away from the Malecon sits Puerta al Mar. This boutique beach front Mexican style building offers a total of eight units. Six two bedroom two and one half baths, and two penthouse three bedroom three and one half bath multistory units with roof top decks. All units have traditional Mexican finishes and offer Mountain and beach front views. Puerta al Mar also offers elevator service, swimming pool, jacuzzi, outdoor bar, direct beach access, covered parking with attendant and 24 hour security. Some units also for sale..

Fantastic location. Great view. Great staff.

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic location walking distance to Malacon and restaurants. Great view on the beach. Great staff.

Starting to show wear. I understand that maintenance and some upgrades planned. None the less still a great condo.

An enjoyable month in this two-bedroom condo on the beach in PVR

  • 4 of 5

The unit is well appointed and furnished, and additional improvements were discussed while we were there, though the absence of comfortable seating for four adults in the living room was an annoyance. We had adult guests for two of the four weeks and the two seats on the comfortable sofa were in high demand! The unit has a beautiful master suite Oceanside. The second bedroom is small and in close proximity to a noisy restaurant (loud music some days from 3 pm till 11 and others from 5 to midnight). The two bathrooms plus a half bath were most appreciated. We left windows open day and night when we were there - for the cross ventilation - and never used the air conditioning. The public areas are well attended to by truly delightful staff who are welcoming. The pool area is well maintained and a day on the beach is a few steps away from the property. A short walk to the north end of the Malecon (about 3 blocks) encourages use of that wonderful feature of PV. Good restaurants are nearby within walking distance and a grocery store is two blocks away; the elevator was a godsend for packages and otherwise the steps were an easy climb.. It is a very safe neighborhood. We never felt uneasy during our 30 day stay. Also, a night watchman on the premises welcomed us home nightly. All appliances worked well including the ice maker in the door of the fridge. The laundry room has an excellent washer and dryer and there is a big pantry area.

The only complaint from our guests was that the hot water in the showers ended too quickly. We reported the problem and it was addressed by the manager and improved. Cleaning is provided only once a week, but cleaning staff is available to clean more for an additional cost. Adding cleaning twice a week might be considered for the future.

We would definitely consider staying here again, especially if the seating in the living room was upgraded. We appreciated the quick responses from the owner about all personal issues, and we commend her decision to employ staff to be on site for the guests.

Friendly staff, great location, good people watching

  • 4 of 5

A bit noisy at night. Problems that arose were solved quickly. A friendly neighborhood but some of the building residents seemed to resent the fact that non residents were staying on site. Great restaurants in the area. Building BBQ was immaculate, but tricky to light and an adventure to try to purchase a BBQ lighter at the nearby grocery store- which was exceptional!

Located on Camarones Beach in downtown Puerto Vallarta, also known as 'Viejo Vallarta,' which is the site of the original fishing village that turned into a world-renowned tourist destination. With cobblestone streets, a pretty town square, and Puerto Vallarta's most famous landmark, the Cathedral Our Lady of Guadalupe, 'El Centro' has a unique charm and character of its own. A mile-long boardwalk known as the 'Malecon' runs along the downtown oceanfront street, Paseo Diaz Ordas, where you will find shops, restaurants, galleries, specialty stores and traditional marketplaces facing the ocean.

This boutique beach front Mexican style building offers a total of eight units. This unit has traditional Mexican finishes and offer Mountain and beach front views. Puerta al Mar also offers elevator service, swimming pool, jacuzzi, outdoor bar, direct beach access, covered parking with attendant, and 24 hour security.

Other Activities: Paradise may be considered a state of mind, but when visiting Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, one definitely experiences a real life paradise.

Golf: Marina Vallarta Golf Club Located in Marina Vallarta, 3.6 miles, since most of the fairways are lined with palm trees and guarded by water, a premium is placed on accuracy.

Flamingos Golf Club Located in Nuevo Vallarta, this traditional-style course enjoys the reputation of being the easiest to play because of its wide-open fairways. Phone:

Punta Mita Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Located 40 minutes to the north, there are two 18-hole courses. Pacífico eight picturesque holes bordering the ocean. Hole #3b, called the “Tail of the Whale,” is a 194-yard, par 3 that plays across the ocean to a rocky island green. Bahía has seven oceanfront holes and is a little more challenging than

Mayan Palace Golf Club Located in Nuevo Vallarta, this is a fun course, though bunkers and water hazards are everywhere. The #14 signature hole is a beautiful 166-yard, par 3 with the ocean on the left and a lake on the right.

El Tigre Golf Club Located in Nuevo Vallarta, this is a lengthy course protected by traps and water throughout. The mammoth finishing hole is the par 5, 621-yard “Tiger.” Most golfers find it untamable because water runs all the way down the left side and the multi-tiered green is surrounded by sand.

Vista Vallarta This is actually two spectacular golf courses at one location, 5.2 miles, just 10 minutes east of the airport. The Nicklaus course has garnered worldwide recognition since hosting the 2002 EMC World Cup Championship.
