"Even in mid-summer, with exceedingly high humidity and temps in 90's, the cross breezes of this 3rd floor end unit kept us very comfortable in this lovely condo. The OXXO next door provided us with all we needed to make breakfast, which we enjoyed from the balcony overlooking the Malecon. The location was perfect, with the wrap-around balcony just high enough for privacy, yet low enough to enjoy watching the multitude of activities - vendors, musicians, families, dog-walkers and tourists - along the Malecon and beach. Given all the music and activity during the day, by 9pm, it was more than quiet enough if one wanted to sleep. The air conditioning in the bedrooms was perfect for shutting out the humidity and sleeping well. The plumbing works as well as you'd expect from an ancient system, but we never felt cold turning the shower water on and off so the drain didn't back up. Do not expect perfection with such things in Mexico; be creative, solution-oriented, and go with the flow. More important are the warm and friendly people of Mexico and the beauty all around. This condo is comfortable, beautiful and perfectly located to access restaurants, shops, banks, old PV landmarks - all a short walk away. If we could improve anything, it would be the bed, but we also know Mexican beds/furniture are renowned for being hard. And even with an egg crate cushion over the mattress, the bed was still hard. For some that is perfect, but for many (55+), not so much. Perhaps Costco-PV carries those 2" memory foam toppers that are in US Costcos, which might help more than the rather thin egg crate topper on it now. Despite this rather minor detail, we would rent this condo again without hesitation. We loved it and our stay in PV. The maid and Vista del Sol staff were great too! Don't miss Archie's Wok, south of the condo about 3-4 blocks, just off Olas Altas towards the beach. Dick's Daiquiri was very good also, but Archie's was exceptional! A great car rental ($60/day for everything but gas) AND tour activity business is a few doors east on Aquiles Serdan. Ask for Pepe - great guy and excellent adventure or other types of tours. We highly recommend this lovely condo and it's location!"
