About Rita Law

I am a property manager in California and purchased this condo at Acqua because of its design, proximity to the ocean and the relaxed atmosphere. The staff is helpful and most accommodating. I decorated the condo with fun and entertaining in mind. Be my guest and experience the fun and excitement of Mexico.

Rita Law purchased this condo in 2008

Why Rita Law chose Nayarit

I chose Acqua, in Nuevo Vallarta because of the weather, warm ocean, and its proximity to other Mexican towns. I don't like the noise and busy streets of Puerto Vallarta. Acqua is beautifully landscaped with zen gardens and fountains. The guests there are Canadian and Americans mostly. A good group to get to know. Many lasting friendships have been made there.

What makes this condo unique

This property is located on the sand. There are private cabanas where you can shade yourself, read a book; mothers can nap their children, or just have a romantic rest with that special someone. The gardens are gorgeous with fountains, lawns, reflecting pool, zen areas with lounges for watching the sunsets.

Beautiful Pool, Beautiful Beach, Beautiful Sunsets

  • 4 of 5

Overall, a great stay. It was fun to be there right next to the beach. The condo was basic, but very clean and tidy, and it suited us fine. The owner was very easy to work with, and very helpful. For breakfast each morning, we had scrambled eggs, ham, toasted rye bread, fruit, and avocado - wonderful! There is a bit of noise from the next door resort, though, more so in the evenings. However, the pool area and beach are very peaceful. Although the building is in need of some minor maintenance, it is nothing major, and the building grounds are well kept and beautiful. The big pool is absolutely pristine. It is very pleasant to lay by the pool in the afternoon and watch the ocean. The smaller pool right on the sand is a fun alternative, with a great view. It was great to be able to leisurely walk on the beach to Bucerias for a nice meal or to browse the shops. We even used one of the gyms in Bucerias, which was awesome. We also walked to the Mega store, which is just like WalMart - it is maybe 3/4 of a mile to walk there, but a nice walk. The bus into PV stops right in front of the building, or a taxi can be called quickly by the guards. Security of the condo complex is excellent, and we noted many guards watching to property and keeping it secure.

Nice location, great beach access and a beautiful pool. Aqua was not crowded and mostly family's.

  • 4 of 5

Aqua Flamingos property was clean and you could tell was under some construction. Our unit was simple but clean. My only complaint was that some of the appliances such as blender, coffee pot were old and cheap. But on the whole it was still a nice place to stay. The pool and staff were friendly and great security so you felt safe. Great central location, not to far from Puerto Vallarta. I would recommend Aqua Flamingos as a great property to stay at.

Owner's Response: Hello and thank you for your review and comments. We try very hard to maintain our condo and love feedback. The coffee pot and blender have been replaced with a better brand.

Awesome vacation

  • 5 of 5

Rented the condo from Rita again for 2 weeks. We are returning renters. What we've noticed is management has improved, grounds are better cared for and more security.

It was such a delight to have decent wifi!

Loved everything about the unit. Used the beach umbrella and chairs a couple of time.

Loved the location. Beach is right there. 3 pools. Lots of beach loungers and cabanas. Easy walk to Bucerias and Mega.

Very relaxing.

Highly recommend.

Would rent from Rita again when we come back to Nuevo Vallarta.

A very relaxing 2 week vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Rita's condo between March 7 to 21. We are 2 adult couples.


Neat, clean, spacious and up to date.

It has ALL the supplies that you'll ever going to need.

It's like staying at home; where you have all the supplies, accessories and conveniences.

Full size fridge and 4 burner stove. Microwave and coffee maker.

BBQ on the balcony. What a bonus! Used that a few times during our stay.

Flat screen tv, ipod stand.

Washer and dryer.

Internet speed ranges from "dial up speed" to fast. It's finicky!

Building: Looks a little worn. No need for concern.

Grounds: Well kept. 24 hour security.

Pool: 2 large ones and another by the beach for swimming laps. clean and well kept. No problems getting pool loungers, sun shelters with mattresses and pillows. Very quiet and laid back atmosphere.

Beach: Awesome! Sandy and not rocky. Not busy compared to neighboring hotels.


North side of Nuevo Vallarta bordering on Bucerias.

25 minute leisurely stroll to Mega (supermarket that has everything)

Taxi rides - just ask the security guards. Takes 2 minutes.

25 minute leisurely stroll to Bucerias (south side).

The location is very safe because you have to go through several security check points to get to the building.

Absolutely no concerns to your safety!

Owner of Condo:

Awesome to deal with.

Prompt in responding to questions or concerns.

I will absolutely rent from her again without hesitation!

Highly recommend!

Other remarks:

Rita (owner) suggest a "pay it forward" to the next guest; which is a great idea! Example: when we arrived after a long plane ride, we wanted ice cold beer to quench our thirst. We found them in the fridge.

We liked the idea so much, we decided to "pay it forward" also to the next guest in a generous way.

Unlike timeshare where you have to dispose of everything before you leave. which is such a waste!
