When we heard that world-renowned Phillippe Starck was teaming up with Icon to create a luxury development in a exotic setting, we knew that we wanted to be a part of this project. The outcome has surpassed our expectations. Icon Vallarta IS the ultimate destination spot.
Icon Vallarta is so conveniently near to fabulous shopping, excursions, gourmet restaurants, galleries, active pursuits and so much more while at the same time it's an oasis into itself. It's surrounding by greenery and the Pacific Ocean; it is truly a glamorous and luxurious escape.
We wanted a private oceanfront location that was immaculately clean, where we could also indulge ourselves in pure luxury and we found it at this exquisite destination. The facilities are top notch (5 star PLUS). Get ready for a run on sentence….there are two enormous pools (one with a table and chairs right in the shallow end so that you could actually sit and have a drink and play a game of cards IN THE SHALLOW END OF THE POOL), three impeccably clean jacuzzi’s overlooking the ocean which are lit up at night in ROTATING PASTEL colours (yes THREE and they’re always EMPTY and kept at a perfect temperature!!!), a superlative gym which was essential for me as I’m a fitness addict and won’t go anywhere without a top notch “gym quality” gym. There are yoga classes and 2 excellent restaurants (you should see the brunch!). There are also many restaurants, cute little shops and 2 actual MALLS within a 10 minute WALKING radius.
This impeccably decorated art deco style condo, that is immaculately clean and extremely quiet is located within a 5 minute walk from the local (nonairconditioned) bus, which my husband convinced me to try and am SO glad I agreed. The ride was fascinating---while you’re riding and enjoying the fabulous view as well as taking in the local culture, the locals actually come onto the bus and play Mexican music on their guitars!! The bus costs about 45 cents and this ONE bus that comes every 5 minutes, takes you positively everywhere without having to even transfer.
There are cabs everywhere, but you will only need one to go downtown or into Old Vallarta (costs approx. $5). The condo is located within a 5 minute walk to the local grocery store, which is enormous (like a Loblaws or Sobeys with No Frills prices). This proved to be a real asset as my husband is dieting and he loves using this custom fully-equipped kitchen.
ELEGANTLY FABULOUS BEYOND WORDS. We recommend this to those with discerning taste.
I spent the last week of December 2010 in this condo, located in the the brand-new high rise Icon Vallarta development. The condo is nicely decorated and in pristine condition, with comfortable furniture. It had everything you might need, including a kitchen, washer/dryer and flat-screen TV. Of course, I spent most of my time outside, enjoying the sunny weather. As described, there's a large pool and private beach area with bar/food service. I ate lunch outside most days, and it was reasonally priced and good quality. It was never too crowded, and it certainly had a better vibe than the tourist hotels. The concierge and staff were always helpful, and offered advice on places to go nearby. I also met several other visitors and condo onwers who were extremely friendly. The primary purpose of my stay was to relax near the ocean, and this was a perfect location, clean, safe and convenient. Restaurants, a shopping mall, groceries, and even a Starbucks are within walking distance. The Icon Vallarta has great amenities, and you can see they put a lot of attention into the details and keeping everything looking great. Overall, I would certainly recommend this place to either single travelers or families, and I look forward to coming back someday.
Our stay was since the beginning full of attention from Joanne and then there all the staff in ICON VALLARTA, this accomadation was by far the most relaxing and enjoyable place to stay in Puerto Vallarta.
This unit was absolutely fantastic. The bed were great, as was the rest of the furniture in the place. We enjoyed all the amenities in the condo, the view's each evening and being able to enjoy our little kid in the big swimming pool, it was nice to be able to hang out at the pool and be the only 3 people there :)
It definitely had a quieter feel than the high rise hotels. The location is perfect. You can be anywhere you want to be within minutes. The grocery store is only a one block away, so it's really convenient for stocking up on whatever you need.
Everyone was friendly and eager to help with what ever you need. This was our first time staying at the ICON and will surely be the only place we stay in the future.
Thank you Joanne, as very friendly and helpful throughout the booking processwe are counting the days until our next visit.
We would strongly recommend this place to everyone!!!!
This brand new light and airy unit is brightly decorated with comfy furnishings and has spectacular floor to ceiling patio doors that open up fully to make it seem like the room is part of the massive outdoor gallery, which stretches along two sides of the condo with a mountain view on one side and a pool/ocean view on the other side. We spent many delightful mornings eating breakfast on the gallery, watching the sun come up over the mountains, and enjoying some incredible sunsets on the beach at night. It is fully equipped with state-of-the-art appliances and a firm-but-oh-so-comfortable bed!
