  • Best. "Dad-cation". EVER!

    "My wife gifted me a "Dad-cation" as we have 2 small kids and keep a busy life in neighboring paradise of Sayulita. A short get-away but somewhere comfortable and close to all our fave places in Vallarta. El Nido de los Cuervos was it! David and Pedro were the perfect hosts, the Condo was beyond clean and comfortable, and every time I thought of leaving for the beach, I decided to just stay inside and watch Movies, sip Tequila and enjoy the comforts. Looking forward to next year's solo-get away. So great. Gracias!!"

  • The Little Touches..

    "Beyond what everyone else has said, add the extra little touches you don't find elsewhere like a great pair of binoculars and an excellent hand press juicer (I squeezed fresh oj every morning!) and plenty of stock of everything so you don't run out of things like paper towels, kitchen supplies, etc. Great kitchen, washer/dryer, flat screens, big patio, nice views, very tastefully decorated, old world charm with modern amenities."

  • WOW! Location - Hospitality - Great Property

    "My group of 9 rented this unit for Spring Break. I had not previously stayed at the Grand Venetian so wasn't sure exactly what to expect. Upon arrival - you open the door and literally see that the ocean is your front door! Being on the first floor was extremely convenient for frequent trips to the 3 pools & ocean! Additionally, having your "own" private yard complete with pool was an added bonus. So enough about the location....lets move on to the HOSPITALITY! The team of Rita and Veronica were superb! Rita went out of her way to make us feel welcome from having the property ready to go, to providing us with tips on where to get the best exchange to Costco ...and the list goes on & on!. Veronica served as our private cook for the week. Each morning our group had a prepared breakfast that include fresh juice, home made parfaits - and a hot dish or 2, (the favorite was the Baguette French Toast). Veronica also prepared mid afternoon snacks (can't have too much Guacamole) as well as dinners for us with fresh fish and home made recipes. Sally & David certainly provided us with a FIND with the Rita & Veronica team. To sum things up - great property (plenty of room for 9) - good location (pools - shopping - bus route) - GREAT HOSPITALITY! I would certainly recommend this property to anyone looking in PV! THX/R"
