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.

                        We recently stayed at Mike & Betty's condo in Puerto Vallarta and it was perfect. It is in a great location (resort feel but close enough to downtown to enjoy the great food of Puerto Vallarta and the heart of what makes Puerto Vallarta so great). Me and my wife stayed there March 22-29. I would highly recomend Mike and Betty's condo. I keep remembering breakfasts and happy hours on there patio or the sunsets and whale watching. Another big thing that sticks out to me about Mike and Betty's condo is the little extra's. They had a cooler, cozies (huge plus to keep those cold beers cold), boogie boards, board games, binoculars and I could go on and on. Thanks again Mike and Betty.

                        Where do I start, awesome!!! The view from our condo was incredible. We watched whales and dolphins in Bandares Bay in the morning and sunsets in the evenings we stayed in. Our experience with the condo owners was outstanding, receiving information about the property before we got there and what to expect when we got there and the condo was exactly as described to us. So clean and like "home", lots of room, I can't say enough. Everything we could have needed was in the condo, plenty of towels, blankets, kitchen facilities, everything!! We opted to get the "All-Inclusive" option from the Holiday Inn when we got there, at $48/day was a steal (pay with your credit card and get a better exchange rate), especially if you don't want to have to get up from your pool lounge chair and have Enrique from the pool bar bring you drinks all day long (I highly recommend tipping a little extra to your server, trust me, it will be worth it...these people work so hard to please you and will remember you :). Our condo owners had different sizes of ice chests in the closet for us to use along with other beach gear),which worked out perfectly since we were able to use them on our snorkeling trips. The condo/Holiday Inn was only about a 10 minute walk to the local grocery store, and $6/$6.50 each way to the Malecon which is where you will want to spend your evenings...so much to see, eat, and shop. I just want to thank Mike & Betty again for letting us book their condo!!

                        From the moment we arrived we were welcomed and treated wonderfully by the staff. The views from this 14th floor condo are amazing. You can see the city as well as amazing sunsets right from the balcony. The owners have done a great job to make it feel like a home away from home. It is decorated with local art and has everything you could need for a wonderfully relaxing stay. The resort has a great beach to enjoy as well as a huge pool. We really enjoyed venturing off the property to explore all the amazing things Puerto Vallarta has to offer. We fell in love with this city and hope to return in the future!

Thank you for the beer and the little something to start our vacation. We enjoyed every day of the stay. We would like to get back in the future. Thank you!

                        We stayed in this condo for 2 weeks over Christmas and all I have to say is the view is amazing from the balcony. Mike and Betty were great to deal with they answered everything we needed to know before and during our trip the condo has everything you need to enjoy very neat tidy and has the Mexican feel. We did some cooking but mainly went out and enjoyed all the many restaurants in the area and downtown.. If you needed to cook they had everything you needed to do so along with all your beach needs. I would stay at this condo again it was amazing its nice to go somewhere and get what you pay for sometimes things don't work out this way but it did in this case and that says a lot about the owners they care.. Our Christmas was amazing and thank you Mike and Betty

                        Recommended for: Romantic getaway, age 55+, families with teenagers, families with young children, sightseeing, girls getaway.

                        Owner response: These guests were terrific. We love it when our guests enjoy the condo as much as we do. We try to do everything we can to make sure that happens. Love to have them as our guests again sometime.

                        - Our service from Holiday Resort staff was good, the concierge was very helpful. - Our accommodations were more then adequate for the two of us. We really enjoyed sitting on the deck and drinking our morning coffee and planning our daily activity. - With the condo located very central within the community, it was close to shopping and very easy to get to just about anything we choose to visit. - We found most people very helpful and friendly, except the taxi drivers and timeshare sales people. We liked the great weather.

                        We found this condo to be the perfect base from which to enjoy all that Puerto Vallarta has to offer. The facilities (other than the poorly equipped gym) are great & when you can tear yourself away from the balcony view, which is to die for, the pool & beach are spectacular. We loved using the local buses to get into downtown as they are cheap & are so much fun to ride on. We will definitely be back soon to PV & would recommend this condo to anyone!

                        The view from the balcony is awesome, I loved sitting there with my morning coffee or late evening drink. The room is very close to the elevator so there's not too much walking to get in and out of the hotel. Taxis were always available right off the main lobby. The condo is very nice looking and comfortable. It has pretty much all the essentials you would need for your stay. I would highly recommend the condo, and dealing with the owners was easy and painless. I didn't use any of the hotel services so I can't comment on them. I either cooked my own food at the condo or went out into the city for meals. I would recommend this accommodation to my best friend!

                        Today is my 60th birthday. What a place to be on this momentous occasion. Today is our last of 8 days here. We pretty much did everything, including taking a taxi to San Sabastien and breaking down on the highway. The adventure followed. It was an amazing way to meet the local people. San Sabastien was not that exciting, but it was enjoyable. Next time I will rent a car to explore more. Stay away from the Vida timeshare people. We spent quite a bit of time in Old Towne walking, shopping and sightseeing. Everything was amazing. We feel fortunate to have found this condo and PV. Many memories were made. We definitely will come back, maybe with more family. Thanks for a great birthday week!

                      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.
