About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2)

This one bedroom, two bath condo is located in Puerto Vallarta's newest and most desirable development. It is a gated community, professionally landscaped with around the clock security two blocks from Los Muertos Beach, the most popular in Puerto Vallarta. It is one block from Basillo Badillo also known as restaurant row and one block from Olas Altas, the heart of Old Town.

The development was built in traditional Mexican style. The entrance is on the ground level only a few steps from the street. All counter tops are granite, both showers are marble, the bathroom windows are stained glass. There is cable internet and a washer/dryer in the unit.

There is an infinity pool you can lounge around for hours, a state of the art exercise facility to keep you fit and a large palapa where you can sit for hours out of the sun and catch up on email or read your favorite novel.

The Owner and Development are not tolerant of the 'party crowd' so if your plans include copious amounts of alcohol and loud noise you would be best advised to look elsewhere. If you are looking for a quiet vacation in one of the nicest deveolopments in Puerto Vallarta this is the unit for you.

Why Andrea Hansen chose Emiliano Zapata

I own a personal unit in this development. When I was looking to purcase a second unit I looked at every development either built or being considered. I concluded where I was was the best and purchased this unit to use for guests.

Simply Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 5th trip to PV but our first at Selva Romatica. We discovered this lovely complex during out daily walk and fell in love with it's location (Up the hill but just a two block walk to the main street).

The condo is simply perfect. Every morning we would open the patio doors and gaze out upon the waking city. There is a balcony off the bedroom, but frankly the dining room with wall to wall doors that open up is even better (helps you stay out of the sun). You're just steps from the pool (but not so close that you're disturbed by it). It's also a relatively quite complex given it's proximity to the city (though music from other units can bounce off the walls). The amenities were perfect and the condo was just as we expected.

Our only complaint would be that there isn't water service (which we've had at our other places), so you have to lug water up from the local stores. Be wary, too, if you have any health issues, the walk up the street is steep and a bit challenging. Over all, though, a simply wonderful place!

One of the nicest complexes in Vallarta!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was exactly as described, the owner very responsive and couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. Nicely decorated and well setup unit. Had the little niceties that elevate it from an ordinary stay to a really cmfortable stay, i.e. filters that fit the coffee maker there, pkg of Ziploc bags in drawer, etc.

If you know Puerto Vallarta then you know this location can't be beat for convenience and proximity to restaurants, bars, the beach. Both Andrea and her on-the-ground agent Mavy were fantastic.

One of the loveliest apartments we have ever stayed in. Two blocks from the heart of things - restaurants and things to so but all snuggled up in a quiet, gated community away from the hustle and bustle.

Super clean, on-site management, parking inside the gate near the condo, beautiful pool, hard to think of what else they could add.

Comfy king bed, great internet, I could go on and on

Great condo, out of the fray and nice grounds/pool

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great trip to PV and the condo and its surroundings were a great respite from the hustle and buzz of the romantic zone. The unit was clean, well-appointed and we enjoyed the great views of the valley to the east. The bed was a comfortable king and the AC worked well although we didn't need it in January. Lots of light and the windows opened to let the mild breezes come in. The location was the end of a dead-end street directly leading into the Los Muertos pier at the bottom of the street. An uphill walk to get there, but only a few blocks and that put us in a relatively quiet residential area. One could take one of the many available cabs up that hill if they wanted. We took one from El Centro and the Malecon to the condo and it was 20 pesos or so. The grounds are clean and well-kept with a great pool, hot-tub, deck and lanai area. The exercise treadmill and elliptical were a little dated, but they worked and they look out onto the pool area. If you want to party, this condo and the development are not really the place to be. Yes, you can party, but I suspect that if you do it late at night that it would be frowned upon. Security guard patrols at night. We never felt unsafe in the complex or nearby. PV is a safe place unless you get yourself into trouble. Nice people. Caretaker at the condo was nice and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay and will be back!
