Hotel Zone condo description

We invite you to enjoy our newly remodeled beachfront Condo at the Holiday Inn Resort in Puerto Vallarta! You'll find yourself in the heart of the bustling hotel zone, and just a few minutes from downtown, on one of the most beautiful beaches for miles around. Enjoy our well equipped ocean front Condo with a magnificent 14th floor view of Banderas Bay, the Sierra Madre mountains and down town Puerto Vallarta.

Our remodeled beach front Condo has one large bedroom with two queen beds, an armoire and a TV (you won't need it), a marble shower and a sunken living room with sofa bed (can sleep two children), a fully-equipped kitchen (full size refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, toaster, pots & pans, dishes and silverware) with a buffet counter. WiFi is available as is Magic Jack for free calls to the U.S. and Canada. Sit on the balcony for the ultimate cup of coffee keeping an eye out for whales or dolphins just off shore or enjoy that romantic dinner for two and the sunset.

You’ll also enjoy all the amenities of the Holiday Inn Resort. Go all out and add on the all-inclusive option, order room service or eat in one of three restaurants, or have a drink at one of 3 bars and you even enjoy a special 15% discount just for being our condo guest. Enjoy the large pool just steps away from the open air lobby which has a pool table and lounge, or the elevated private beach complete with palm trees, or a few more steps down to the expansive beach where you can bring your own refreshments (a cooler is available in the room).

The resort also offers plenty of lounge chairs, free beach towels, swim-up bar, island bar and a separate Kids' Pool. The adults only Oasis Club offers Jacuzzis, dipping pool, Universal gym and sunning area. Onsite shops, business center, beauty salon/spa, tennis, and even two travel/tour agencies for those that want to venture out. Make sure you save time for a massage on the beach!

Puerto Vallarta is said to be a very safe area with an unusually low crime rate. The area makes most of its living through tourism, so there is a definite interest in keeping tourists (and residents) safe and secure. There are even special “ tourist police,” who wear white safari-esque outfits with black shoulder pads, are bi-lingual and will offer directions and assistance to those who need it, in addition to general security. Many people say they feel safer walking in Puerto Vallarta at night than they do in their home cities.

Buses and taxis are readily available (and very inexpensive) to take you to the Malecon (Seaside Boardwalk) or Old Town for shopping, art galleries, the fish market, sidewalk performers, fireworks from the Santa Maria replica pirate ship and international dining. The Marina is also nearby where you can see the cruise ships come in.

Reservations are made directly with me, the owner, a licensed and bonded real estate broker in the US. While on vacation, should you need anything at all, our property managers are located within minutes of the Holiday Inn and are accessible at all times. They even offer personal shopping services at a nominal fee. Our goal is to provide you with the ultimate worry free vacation so you will want to be our guest again.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About the owner: Mike and Betty Schmitt are long time residents of St. Cloud, Minnesota. We enjoy fishing on nearby Clearwater Lake in the summer and are involved with the local antique car club and Lions Club. We also enjoy evening cruises in our '69 mustang.

              Why the Owner Chose Hotel Zone:
              We vacationed in Puerto Vallarta just one time and fell in love with this beautiful city, walks on the beach and its very friendly people.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              We love to eat some of our own meals on the balcony and go out to one of the many fabulous restaurants on other days. A large grocery store called Soriana is just a short walk where you can buy fresh fish and wonderful bakery goods. There are many other shops here as well.
