Wonderful stay in Puerta Vallarta!
My wife and I recently had a wonderful 2-week vacation at the condo at the end of May. The condo was very comfortable, clean and had all the amenities we required. We loved being able to use the facilities at the Sunscape hotel. The pool and beach were fantastic and we even opted for the all-inclusive meals for a few of the days we were there. This was a great perk and value. When we didn’t eat at the resort, we either cooked in the condo or we went to some of the great restaurants across the street and downtown. The weather was a little hot during the day, but the mornings and evenings were very pleasant. Being by the pool, we did not mind the heat at all. We enjoyed our trip very much and are looking forward to coming back to use the condo again!
Condo was much as advertised but shortcomings were much more difficult than we anticipated
The condo was much as I expected. Having stayed in other condos in the Sunscape (old Sea River complex) many times in the past I was not surprised at the age and condition of the condo, but the lack of laundry facilities and internet connection proved to be much more demanding than I anticipated. We were there for a month and the difficulties to obtain these services were a major annoyance.
Ist, let me commend the services provided by the property manager (Leslie). We had several problems while we were there (coffee maker died, Toilet broke, Water leak developed under kitchen sink) and in each instance she was there immediately and provided timely correction of the problem. Also, I want to complement the work of the maid referred by the property manager. The maid came in weekly (at our expense) and kept the condo in excellent condition at a reasonable cost. I would recommend contracting maid services for a stay of more than 2 weeks.
Due to a change of Sunscape to an All-inclusive resort, we were unable to use the restaurants or bars in the resort unless we paid for the all-inclusive services (a $55 US daily charge), which is an experience which we prefer to avoid. So, this created a situation of requiring many additional trips to other locations to get laundry, internet connection and restaurant access.
The pool and beach access was good but there is the ever present rush at sunrise to claim a palapa or pool location for the day.
Otherwise, the stay was a pleasant experience, but not something that fits our needs. If you want a stay in an All-Inclusive resort and can work around the other problems, then this might be the place for you.
I would like thank you for staying with us and we always appreciate feedback. I would like to clarify a few points about your stay and our condo.
To begin with, our condo is at the Sea River Tower, which is separate from Sunscape Resort, but is on the same property. One of the benefits of staying with us is that our guests have the pleasure of using the Sunscape Pool, Beach and facilities free of charge. As Sunscape is an all-inclusive resort, dining with them is optional for $55 USD a day for our guests (from 7am-11pm). That includes a delicious full buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner at one of five fantastic restaurants and unlimited snacks, beverages, wine, beer, liquor and an evening show. This is an approximate $200 value and this low price is only available for guests of the condo. If you do not choose to dine at Sunscape there are wonderful restaurants across the street and next-door, not to mention the fantastic restaurants downtown (10 minute taxi ride). There is also a supermarket a very short walk from our building, if you prefer to cook in the condo.
In regards to internet service, unfortunately we are not able to install wireless internet in the unit due to technical issues, but our guests are able use Wireless Internet through Sunscape resort for a very low price of 500 peso for 5 days (approximately $5.50 USD a day). WIFI is also available free of charge in the lobby.
One thing we take great pride in is our service to our guests and making sure they are as comfortable as possible. I’m happy to hear that you were impressed with our service and the attention of our condo manager. Service is something we take very seriously. When there was an issue with plumbing, we had a plumber there to fix it within two hours. On the fifth day of your stay, our manager informed us that the coffee machine broke and we immediately authorized her to buy a new one and deliver it to the unit.
Lastly, as stated on the website, laundry facilities are located a short walk (one block) from the building. But I’d like to mention that our property manager went above and beyond the call of duty by picking up your laundry twice during your stay and delivering it the next day. She wanted to make sure you were as comfortable as possible and did this out of the kindness of her heart.
We are happy that you had a pleasant stay and we strive to make sure all our guests have as wonderful a trip as possible.
Winter break 2018
My wife and I stayed in this condo for the month of Jan 2018. Mr Baha was very helpful during the booking process of confirming the rental via VRBO and then with other contact explaining how to check in as well as a "get to know condo" checklist. Upon our arrival the condo was found to be as presented on VRBO and ready to enjoy. The condo is comfortable and has everything needed to make light meals etc. Grocery shopping is within easy walking distance at two Soriana stores. Or if you wish you can purchase the All Inclusive option via the Sunscape Resort which the Sea River tower is attached to and which we did for one week. As a condo renter you can also use all the facilities of the resort such as pool, chairs and beach. WIFI is available in the tower's downstairs lobby.
Bus stops are close by for easy access to anywhere in the city. Laundry facilities are nearby as well.
The unit is on the 6th floor so there were nice views of the pool, beach,ocean and city.
We enjoyed our month long stay here and would be happy to again, in the future.
Amazing Place for the Summer - Highly recommended
My stay was 20 days at the Sea River Tower. I never experienced in the summer in Puerto Vallarta but my experience was so great and I hope to stay at the same condo next year. During the day I was walking at 9 am. The temperature was excellent at the time. At around 11 am I went to the beach and to swim at the swimming pool. The temperature was between 35 C and 40 C. In the evening after 8 pm, the breeze from the ocean has a pleasant atmosphere and very different from the afternoon weather conditions. Inside, the condo was air-conditioned, and we did not feel hot at all. I would like to sincerely thank Leslie Montez (condo manager) who provided the accommodation for me for her hospitality and her caring during my stay. The property was exactly as advertised. No surprises. The view and location were wonderful. We found the location convenient for grocery shopping and restaurants.

Very relaxing vacation with a great location and wonderful views!
My husband and I spent the month of January in this condo. We loved the resort and the city of Puerto Vallarta. The condo has everything you need and was as listed. The owner was quick to respond to any needs and the rental arrangements were very easy.
The location is perfect, it is a short bus or taxi ride to downtown or the marina and airport and a short walk or ride to get groceries at Soriano or Walmart.
From the balcony we enjoyed the great view of the pool, beach, water activities and the city of Puerto Vallarta. The lights at night were amazing.
This is a very friendly resort with a beautiful large pool, great beach and the staff are all excellent. We had a wonderful vacation and look forward to returning again soon.
Beautiful sandy beach, huge swimming pool, bar, restaurant, two tennis courts, business center, gym, spa, whirlpools
