Our family of 4, 2 adults and two teeenagers, stayed at Tom and Elena's Punta Esmeralda condo in December 2014. Their condo is on the 3rd floor of the Huana bldg. Beautiful, unobstructed views of the Bay of Banderas. Punta Esmerlada is located in a gated community in between Bucerias and La Cruz, which is beatifully landscaped and well-maintained. There must be 8+pools throughout the complex for you to use. The villas are privately owned.
Our family didn't rent a car. Our mode of transportation was taxi, walking, or public transportation. The condo is roughly 30-35 minute walk to Bucerias or La Cruz on the beach. You may catch a taxi near the front gate to your destination or you can pick up public transportaion just outside the resort along the highway.
Plenty of great restaurants to eat dinner at in Bucerias, Nuevo Vallarta, or La Cruz. Working with Elana on the rental contract for our vacation was seamless and easy. We would recommend their place for a quiet, relaxing vacation. Thank you for allowing us to stay at your property. We had a fantastic vacation.
We stayed in this wonderful condo in December 2013. We enjoyed the amazing ocean views and beautiful sky line lights of Bucerias and Nuevo Vallarta at night.
Punta Esmeralda is a wonderful, guard manned, gated development with eight pools, a work out facility, tennis courts, a spa and a poolside restaurant with gourmet style food at cafe prices. The owners of the restaurant will deliver to your condo or even cook for you if you prefer. The grounds are meticulously maintained and the pools are very clean.
The condo is on the third floor of one of the most conveniently located of all the towers. It is away from the traffic noise of the highway and very close to the beach. There is underground parking with easy access to the elevator from the assigned parking space. The condo itself is beautifully appointed with everything needed, including wireless internet for a comfortable short vacation or an extended stay in paradise. There is a terrace with a barbecue and sitting area to enjoy sunrise over the ocean or moonrise each night. With the cross breeze there is no need for A/C, although it is available. All the furnishings are comfortable and the condo is tastefully decorated. The oversized bedrooms have comfortable beds and the marble bathrooms have large walk in showers. There is plenty of closet space and drawers. Overall this unit is perfect for four adults or for a couple with two children of any age.
Elena is a pleasure to work with; she is very professional and true to her word. Elena clearly has her concierge team well trained to provide the best service possible. There is no request unfulfilled.
Punta Esmeralda is centrally located to many great restaurants, the grocery store and to a Sunday farmers market during the high season. The development is 20 minutes North of the Puerto Vallarta airport in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle. It is an easy bus or taxi ride to Bucerias, Nuevo Vallarta, Puerto Vallarta, or to the famous surfing beach of Sayulita. If your time allows, all of these areas are worth exploring.
We will certainly return to this unit many times in the future.
We stayed in Elena's apt in Jan/Feb 2013 and thoroughly enjoyed it . We'd love to return. It was our first time in Punta Esmeralda. We cannot recommend more highly this complex: the grounds are tastefully landscaped and manicured, the 8 pools pristine, the staff always smiling and helpful. It is a paradise for those who crave peace and privacy, yet it is conveniently located between Bucerias and La Cruz for easy access to shops, markets and restaurants. All the units are privately owned which might explain why the complex feels half empty most of the time (except during the Christmas and Easter holidays). You'll always find a sunny or shaded place of your liking around one of the pools, you might even have a whole pool to yourself! If you decide not to rent a car, transportation is easy with a constant flow of busses plying the highway just outside the gate. Taxis are plentiful and reasonable. The grounds and the surrounding beaches feel very safe.The apartment is in a 12 unit condo building quite far from the entrance and the highway. It is used for rentals only. Hence, the furnishing is functional and comfortable but not luxurious. It has all the basic amenities, the appliances are of good quality and work well, the master bedroom king bed is very comfortable, less so the twin beds in the second bedroom which are more suitable for children than older adults. There is ample drawer/storage space and the two very large bathrooms are very pleasant with extra large shower stalls and good water pressure. A very special feature of this condo is the SPECTACULAR view from ALL its rooms. The glass window wall of the living/dining room slides back to open the unit to the Bay. You can enjoy the outside, the sea, the frigate birds from the shaded comfort of the living-room. There is usually a cross-breeze in the condo that renders the aircon unnecessary.
The owner, Elena, is business-like and trustworthy. She keeps her word. After we agreed on our rental she had an offer to rent her condo for a whole year but she honoured our contract and the yearly renter had to move out for our stay's duration. Frida and Jessica, from the concierge service, did their utmost to make our stay pleasant and take care of our requests.
. We enjoyed the possibility of taking long walks on the beach in either direction (Bucerias or La Cruz) and particularly liked the La Cruz Sunday market. We recommend this place for a quiet holiday or for a family with young children.
We had the privilege of staying in this unit for a month (Feb-March, 2012) and loved it. The view of the sea is spectacular and the complex itself feels very safe. It is gated and well-guarded. Not that we are worried about safety but because of all of the hype, some people are. We feel more safe in La Cruz/Puerto Vallarta than we do in parts of our hometown city (San Diego).
The unit itself is very comfortable. The complex has 8 beautiful pools. One has a very nice cafe where you can get breakfast and lunch poolside. They even have room service if you call. The complex is so well designed that you hardly see anyone else. There is a nice spa and work out room as well. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and plan to return next year.
I would highly recommend this unit. The gated secure complex has amazing views from every location on the property and quick access to the beach if you do not want to lounge by one of the 8 gorgeous pools! We have a toddler who also loved her time in Bucerias. We stayed a week in April 2011 and did not want to leave. The check in process was easy & they even lend you a cell phone for your use during your stay. The owners were extremely helpful with the booking process as i've never used Paypal before. I can say nothing negative about the whole event! Enjoy your stay as much as we did!
My husband and I rented this condo for one month and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. It is the nicest condo resort area north of Bucerias. Very quiet resort with beautiful pools and grounds that were perfectly maintained. The ocean view from the condo is gorgeous. The bedrooms and bathrooms are very spacious and comfortable. The living areas are perfect for 2-4 people. The deck has a nice grill which was perfect for dinners in the evening. The tennis courts are great and there is a nice sized gym.
The concierge service was fantastic. Bus or taxi service is excellent into Bucerias or into Puerto Vallarta. Overall a really great place to stay.
