Great shopping, wonderful beaches, quaint small towns, tons of activities on the clean, beautiful beach, that stretches for a 10 mile walk.

Patio furniture for sitting or sunning, lounge chairs and terrace dining table with 6 chairs. You can barbecue on your Weber, gas grill, and cook all your favorite barbeque meals. Each room has a fan....including the bathrooms. There is an air conditioner in each bedroom as well as the great room. Enjoy many dvd movies from our movie dvd collection on the flat screen tv in the great room or from the flat screen tv in the north side, master bedroom. This penthouse has it all!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dyan & Hugh



I want to thank you for an exceptionnal stay at Acqua Flamingo. We realised immediately that your home was fabulous. We can assure you that we took care of the place like it was our own. Everything in the condo is upscale. We adored the sunsets from the patio. We used the floating chairs a lot, it was a great asset. We went to Karen's place and Marks bar and grill for dinner, it was delicious. Everything was perfect

Beautiful location but issues with maintenance and property management

  • 2 of 5

This unit is in an excellent location, the space is wonderful and the unit is tastefully decorated. The common areas of the property are clean and beautifully maintained. It's best feature is its spectacular view with incredible sunrise and sunset shows.

We rented this property primarily because of the beautiful terrace depicted in the ad photos. That was not the reality that we encountered. Contrary to the ad photo, our patio had 1 broken table umbrella and table, 2 side tables, 6 chairs and 3 lounges. Don't even ask about the pool! The unit had not been properly prepared to accept guests. The end result being that the serenity, privacy and enjoyment of our holiday were grossly compromised by having to deal with maintenance issues and frequent repairmen in our unit.

Our experience was that there is no proactive maintenance but rather a band-aide approach operation. We were subjected to constant breakdowns of under serviced and tired equipment. Enough said! As such there were constant maintenance problems which cannot be included in 2490 characters.

The unit was superficially clean however no deep cleaning had taken place for some time including surfaces inside and out as well as linens that required replacement.

Service was poor. When brought to property manager Arlene's (Shant's mother) attention, problems were addressed but most often with considerable hesitation and delay. Items that were in our contract were not provided ie: television reception and weekly cleaning. Upon our arrival at midnight we were unable to unlock the door with the code provided by Shant as Arlene had changed it that day. Water in the unit is undrinkable due to a not maintained filtering system yet there was not even a welcome bottle of drinking water. A positive attitude by the property manager towards guests, maintenance and service was not apparent.

The four of us are seasoned travellers who have rented through Home Away dozens of times all over the world but never before have we encountered so many issues nor felt the need to submit a negative review. In good conscience we cannot recommend this property.

Wish I Could Recommend it, But...

  • 3 of 5

Although I can't currently recommend it, this unit has lot going for it. The interior is attractive, the rooms are spacious, and the kitchen is well-stocked with pots, pans and utensils. The patio is huge, well furnished, and provides an amazing view of the pools, the beach, and the coast, and is an amazing vantage point for enjoying the sunset.

Unfortunately, as our visit (1st week of January '18), the unit was not in condition to be rented. We experienced the following issues:

• Just about every bathroom sink and shower drain was extremely slow, and one of them emitted a terrible odor.

• The bottom of the front door dragged heavily against the floor, making it very challenging- and loud- when opening or closing it.

• The top rack of the dishwasher was missing a wheel, and could not be pulled open without derailing it. Loading and unloading it had to be done by reaching into the machine.

• One light switch in the back bathroom was damaged- it sparked when switched to the “on” position, and the light would only go on for a moment each time it was engaged (maintenance fixed it when they came to check on the lack of water). The ceiling fan in that bathroom didn’t work, either.

• 3 of 6 stove burners would not light unless lit with a hand lighter. The oven may or may not work- we were never able to get it to turn on.

• The washing machine stopped working midway through our stay- the tub would not drain.

Our experience with the property managers was mixed. They were quick to send someone when we let them know upon our arrival that 2 of the 4 AC units were not working, and when we woke to find there was no running water (that issue disappeared on its own). However, there was no toilet paper in the unit when we arrived, and while we’ve stayed many places that don’t include paper products, this is the only one that didn’t provide an initial roll, which was a problem when one of us arrived with stomach issues. The hot water heater was off on arrival. And the cost of the maid was very high.

Notes- the condo complex lacks a restaurant or bar, so be prepared. And construction in the complex is still in full swing.

The location, living space and patio view make this a unit I wish I could recommend. Instead, I suggest that before you make a decision on whether to rent it, you talk through the mentioned issues with the property manager. If you feel comfortable that they have been resolved, then this unit will be a great home base for your vacation.

ES UN FRAUDE LAS INSTALACIONES NO CORRESPONDEN A LAS FOTOS PUBLICADAS .

  • 1 of 5

Llegamos a la propiedad y tiene muchos muebles en mal estado comenzando por un banco roto en la barra de cocina,sillas del comedor descompuestas no se diga de la terraza todos los camastro estaban rotos al igual que algunas sillas del comedor ,la alberca privada muy sucia ni siquiera la pudimos usar porque nos quejamos del estado de la misma y nunca la limpiaron ,sin funcionar un ventilador y las fotos que muestran en la página no son reales porque los muebles no se encuentran en ese estado.

ES UN FRAUDE.

Sin mencionar el mal trato y falta de seriedad de la propietaria,no lo recomiendo para nada porque nos cobraron por los daños que ya existían .

We stayed in this Amazing Penthouse two years ago. It is still one of the best vacations we have ever had. The pictures do not make justice for this property. Once you enter you will instantly love it. This penthouse has an amazing view. You appreciate Nuevo Vallarta lovely sunsets every day, while you are resting on your own private pool. We only went downstairs to swim on the beach, we really loved staying in this property. I loved the barbecue grill! I loved cooking to my family hamburgers, shrimps, steaks, you name it! The rooms are perfect for 6 people, very comfy and amazingly decorated. The kitchen has everything you need!

I really liked staying in this Penthouse and would definitely stay again! I recommend it to all my friends that are looking for a great and relaxing vacation!

Nice unit but lots of construction going on

  • 3 of 5

The unit was nice but lots of construction going on the next floor down. We had to park in a gravel parking lot used by the staff. It was kind of a pain to walk the whole length of both buildings just to get to the elevator to our floor. Bernie and the staff at the complex were very nice.
