"My husband, 4 kids (21,19,17,13) and 21 year old friend, all really loved this condo. Very spacious for the 7 of us and absolutely beautiful views. We cooked in a lot and enjoyed the wonderful sunsets. Costco is a close taxi ride away, the regular supermarket is walking distance (just a few blocks). Everything is as stated and better once you are there. We did have a problem with the a/c working in the 2nd master bedroom, they did come to fix it right away, but we still had trouble with it. A couple other minor things, so that is why not a 5 star. We were having too good of a time to let it bother us. The owner Joe was great and very easy to work with. The Peninsula it self was great, very accommodating. It was in the summer and off season so it was hot and humid but again so much fun. I got 2 massages there for 350 pesos, which is about $25 for one hour. The beach was clean, pool was clean. We used the movie room, just reserve it prior to make sure you get it. We had some other friends stay in another condo in tower 2, so a total of 14. We watched some movies and the room was great, very private and great recliners. We were able to rent a banana boat out front and lots more was offered, parasailing, jet skis, horseback, and more.
We did a city tour which was great! Talk to Naomi downstairs she can set you up with what ever you need. The city tour showed us quite a bit, and also went tequila tasting. The tasting was much better than I expected. Flavored tequila (coffee, almond, orange) all from a family operated business (Rafael was awesome!) and we learned quite a bit. We also saw some great sites. The downtown area, church, arches, homes and more. 8 guys also went fishing and all caught fish. Again talk to Naomi and she will set it up. We did the Outdoor adventure with Vallarta Adventures. It was the best, we have done zip lining in Hawaii and loved it, but this was in the jungle with waterfalls, and wide variations of adventures. Included was a boat ride, donkey ride, big truck ride, several zip lines, repelled into the water, and water slides. It was so much fun! We also went to a beach called Mis Mejolla, not sure of the spelling. We got there early which I would suggest, around 10:00am. There was 12 of us an we all went snorkeling at the Arch, it was great! We also went a few times to the Malecon, which is lots of shops by the beach,ice cream, bars, restaurants, dance places. Great family trip!
