About Christine Bond

We live in Salt Lake City and enjoy many outdoor activities including fishing, diving, water skiing, wakeboarding and jet skiing. Our family has enjoyed traveling to Mexico for many years. Pictured here, 'the boys' just finished snorkeling while mom takes a quick photo! We also own a winter ski property near Deer Valley in Park City, Utah. (VRBO #291266)

Christine Bond purchased this condo in 2010

Why Christine Bond chose Nayarit

We selected the Alamar resort for three reasons--location, location, location. We have been vacationing and working in Mexico for over 20 years and decided to purchase at Alamar because of its close proximity to the new world-class Marina Riviera Nayarit, the great reputation of the builders (Grupo Real del Mar) and the town's safety and proximity to both Puerto Vallarta and Punta de Mita. Purchasing north of Puerto Vallarta gave us less traffic congestion and more of the 'peace and quiet' of Mexico that we were looking for. With our charter boat located in the new marina, we couldn't imagine being anywhere else. What really made up our minds are the incredible views we enjoy from the property on which the Alamar Resort is located and the extra amenities on site. Whether inside our outside, we love what we see and do here!

What makes this condo unique

Grupo Real del Mar did a terrific job when they designed and built the Alamar Resort. The quality of the construction in excellent, all water is filtered, the property has 24 hour security and we never worry when we are staying in our unit or traveling throughout the quaint town of La Cruz. Having two choices for swimming is terrific--sometimes we walk out our back door to the very convenient Jungle Club pool which we also enjoy lighted at night or we can also choose to head to the Beach Club and have the whole place to ourselves! What could be better? We have found the reception/security staff at Alamar to be friendly, helpful and courteous. This property is completely safe, secure and gorgeous!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed ourselves at your condo and all of Alamar. Much more than we'd expected which was a real treat. Both pools and the beach were just what we all needed. Everything was in good working order and very comfortable.



The couple we came to visit who are tied up in the Marina and provisioning for their journey across the Pacific became engaged on Wednesday evening in your living room.



Great fun.

Awesome!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place and plan to return. The condo has all the amenities of home with the addition of a gorgeous view of the bay. On site is a wonderful pool overlooking the bay as well and a pickleball court the kids had fun with. The private beach club was incredible, where you could sit by another beautiful pool with food and drink service or head down to the beach and play in the gentle surf. It's located in a quiet town outside of the hustle and bustle of Puerto Vallarta with plenty of shopping and restaurants. Very relaxing.

Tout pour des vacances merveilleuses!!!

  • 5 of 5

Le condo est très spacieux et lumineux, avec une vue incroyable (120 degrés), sur la baie de Banderas! La cuisine est très bien équipée (il y a pleins de choix d'assaisonnements) pour faire tout ce que vous désirez. De plus, il y a un gros BBQ, sur le balcon pour les grillades. Les fournitures sont nombreuses (Wifi, TV cablée, XBOX, laveuse, sécheuse (détergent fourni), cadran, séchoir à cheveux, draps de bain, literie de rechange, serviettes de plage, matelas pour chaises longues, etc.) Le CLUB DE PLAGE est à 5-7 minutes de marche, et il est MERVEILLEUX. Nous pouvons y commander un lunch, à coût très raisonnable. De plus, comme il est privé, il n'y a pas de sollicitation. Le transport collectif est à quelques pas... Il est très efficace et pas cher! Le seul petit bémol, est l'épicerie... Nous devons nous rendre en autobus ou en taxi. Cela ne prend que 10 minutes, et ne coûte que 10 pesos... Par contre, cela en vaut le coût, car le supermarché MEGA est génial, et nous y trouvons de tout! Je vous recommande vivement cet endroit chic et sécuritaire. Nous y retournerons, assurément!

Owner's Response: Translation: Everything for a wonderful vacation !!! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ The condo is very spacious and bright, with an incredible view (120 degrees), on Banderas Bay! The kitchen is very well equipped (plenty of choice of seasonings) to do whatever you want. Also, there is a big BBQ on the balcony for grilling. There are plenty of supplies (Wifi, cable TV, XBOX, washer, dryer (detergent supplied), dial, hairdryer, bath sheets, spare bed linen, beach towels, mattress for sun loungers, etc.) Is a 5-7 minute walk, and it is WONDERFUL. We can order a lunch at a very reasonable cost. Moreover, since it is private, there is no solicitation. Public transportation is a few steps away ... It is very efficient and cheap! The only downside is the grocery store ... We have to go by bus or taxi. It only takes 10 minutes, and costs only 10 pesos ... However, it is worth the cost because the MEGA supermarket is great, and we find everything there! I highly recommend this chic and safe place. We will definitely return! Dear Guests: Thank you for your feedback and for sharing your recent experience staying at our property.

Views, beautiful, comfortable, quiet.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely complex in the hills above the town of La Cruz de Huanacaxtle. The condo is beautiful, spacious, airy, bright and very well appointed. Kitchen well stocked, nice beds, linens, towels, etc. Lots of toys in the unit for all sorts of activities. The view from the deck is great for morning breakfasts with a view of the bay of Banderas. We watched the New Years fireworks all around the bay toward Puerto Vallarta from the balcony. The pools are very nice, especially the one at the beach club. Good food and drinks at the beach club. The ocean water at the beach is a little rough and best entered at high tide, so you don't scrape up your feet. If it is a busy time of year, you'll need to get to the club early to get a lounge chair. The town is rustic and not modern, it is an easy walk, and there are some nice little restaurants. But you'll need to go back to Bucerias or farther for decent groceries. Taxis are fairly good so you can go without a car, and there is also transit for the more adventurous which is very cheap. The fish market at the marina is amazing. And there is a nice Sunday craft market at the marina.

Spring Break 2013 Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four rented this condo and were extremely pleased! Even though we were there during spring break, our private beach club allowed us access to the beach without all the crowds. We had no trouble securing our own free cabana at the club. We had access to two swimming pools, one at the beach club and one connected to our condo. Everything in the condo was perfect. Every room had its own climate control and all appliances worked well. It was especially nice to have our own parking space in the garage, our own washer and dryer (yes we got muddy on one of our tours), and every other convenience of home. We found that we spent a lot less money here than we have previously staying at the All-inclusive hotels and we liked this much better. We ate wherever we wanted and filled the fridge with drinks and snacks. The owners are very organized and dependable. They promptly returned the security deposit and were so easy to communicate with. This is how family vacations should be done. One more thing.....this condo was super clean too!

Need to get away?

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from beautiful Puerto Vallarta (well, La Cruz de Huanacaxtle to be precise) and wondering when we can go back! Thanks for offering your condo at the Alamar Resort. Spectacular views over looking La Cruz and out over Banderas Bay on the one side; lush, green, canopied hills on the other. We loved seeing the thunder clouds roll in over the mountains on the other side of the Bay, envelop Puerto Vallarta and leave us alone.

The amenities were perfect. The pool at the condo was serene. We could not have asked for a more private, relaxing and quiet retreat. The pool and ocean water was perfect. Comfortable temperatures and refreshing! The condo was comfortable, nicely decorated and stocked with everything we had it home. It was also very nice given the timing of our trip at the tail end of the hot and humid part of the year to have it well air-conditioned. The security at the Alamar Resort was friendly and attentive and amazingly almost everyone we spoke to spoke English. We could barely practice our Spanish.

On the action front, we loved the zip line tour and the Executive Charter snorkeling expedition to the Marietas Islands where the water was a deep, navy blue—very clear and warm. We had dolphins swimming along with the boat. What a treat.

Thanks for the food recommendations. The food at the Beach Club, Tacos on the Street, Tortuga Bay, and Xocolate was fantastic! Going into Puerto Vallarta on Sunday evening for the Malecon was very cultural. After being there with the all the people, sights, sounds, food, it was nice to get back to the serenity of the Alamar Resort.

We used taxis and a car to get around depending on the situation. Either worked very well. We could call the security guard at the entrance to the Alamar Resort, tell him our condo number and tower name and he would have a taxi up to the parking garage in 5 minutes. Bring your Pesos!

We also liked driving ourselves and thought it was very orderly and similar to driving in Utah with the exception of the left hand turns from right side frontage road with the "fletcha" or arrow.

Overall, wonderful! Thanks for making it all available.
