We love La Joya!

  • 4 of 5

Overall our stay was great. Laura was easy to communicate with. Answered questions promptly. The property manager Teresa was quick to respond to our inquiries and requests once we arrived. We were very comfortable. We always worry about the comfort of the bed but needn't worry after all. Slept wonderfully well. Liked the convenience of the keyless lock. Love the pool. Building is maintained to high standards.

We would stay again if available.

La Joya is a lovely condominium complex in La Cruz!

  • 4 of 5

La Joya is a well maintained condo complex in the town of La Cruz. The complex itself is very clean, gardens are well kept, the pool is cleaned every morning, and the staff are pleasant and friendly. It is a gated complex with 24/7 security so we felt very safe staying there. Our unit was very clean, however we ran into a couple of issues with our unit but contacted the property manager who immediately got back to us and dealt with the problems. La Cruz is a sleepy fishing village with a great marina and sea wall for morning walks, Sunday market, and some good restaurants. We liked the vibe in La Cruz as it was quieter than Bucerias or PV but if you wanted you could go into either for the day and explore the malecon or flea market.

Great getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We recently returned home after spending 6 weeks at LaJoya in LaCruz. This was our first visit to this village and we truly enjoyed being there. The condo was nicely equipped and the complex was really well maintained...............thanks to Rufina and Jeremy! They worked so hard to keep everything clean and looking great. We also felt very safe with the 24/7 security. Alex, one of the security guards was always very helpful as were the others. The property manager, Teresa, was very responsive the couple of times we contacted her. The condo was perfect for our stay. We cooked many of our meals and having the BBQ grill was great. The deck provided just the right balance of sun and shade and we spent most of our time there when we weren't out exploring. Short walk to the beach, the marina and one of our favorite places, Osos. The Sunday market at the marina is something everyone should experience at least once. Lots of good food, music and local crafters. Taking the bus into Bucerias for the flea market and Fat Boys beachfront seafood restaurant was easy and very inexpensive (10 pesos per person). We would definitely return.

I almost don't want to leave a good review just so that I can keep this little place a secret! This condo has plenty of space, well decorated, the staff was very nice and accommodating and I felt very safe throughout my stay. The owners responded right away if I had any questions or concerns and informed me of everything I needed to know prior to my arrival.

Just a 2-minute walk to the beach and a 5-minute walk into town made it very conveniently located. The town of La Cruz is a wonderful little town filled with great food and very friendly locals. If you're looking to rent a car, call Gecko car rental in Bucerias, they'll arrange to have you picked up from the airport for free, the people there are great and rentals are fairly priced. This condo is also great because it has a spot in their gated garage for your rental which is located next to an elevator making it easy to transport groceries to the house. I will definitely be returning to La Cruz and will be renting this condo again very soon!!

A Cozy Paradise in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle - Less than 1 Block from the Beach

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect!! A great 2-BDR condo with a beautiful view and plenty of room for a family of 4-5. We had a great time, as the management of the condominiums were very helpful, kind, and spoke plenty of English. In particular this is crucial for getting around - you need the doorman to be able to call you a cab when its time to commute to the right places around the Puerto Vallarta area. All the doormen were exceptional in this regard and made our stay as easy as can be. The condo was very nicely furnished, decorated in true ocean side fashion, and the bathrooms/kitchen were even nicer than local hotels/resorts. What a great find!! I would not only recommend this place, but I WILL BE BACK!! A+++++

High expectations met.

  • 5 of 5

We had high expectations for our rental. The expectations were met. The rental was clean, well equipped, secure, and comfortable. We made good use of the BBQ on the units balcony — with views of marina and Banderas Bay. Lots of song birds, well groomed grounds. Also found washer and dryer to be a convenient plus. Water good. Great staff, especially Salvador. No negatives! We will return.
