Why Reggie Bowles chose Romantic Zone

After having visited Puerto Vallarta for many years I decided that I would buy a vacation condo there. When I started to look I came across this perfect unit as to size and location. I completely rennovated the unit installing new tile floors, Authenic Mexican windows and opened the entire front of the living room area with sliding doors and privacy shades that opens onto the terrace.

What makes this condo unique

Location,location,location.....absolutely one of the very best in the Zona Romantica....in the center of all activity with everything only steps away.

Great location, nice place for 1 or 2 people

  • 5 of 5

Reggie is awesome. He is a great host who always replies within minutes. The place was clean when I got there and had plenty of clean towels and extra linen. The wireless went but it started up the same day not sure why it went out. I text Reggie and he immediately replied he would contact the internet provider. While he was on the phone with them it started.

Fabulous condo in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had the privilege of renting Reggie's condo for 1/2 September & all of October 2015. Unlike what reviewer Denise S. wrote, this condo was perfectly equipped with plush towels, great bed linens and all kitchen utensils. The wifi worked great & always had a strong signal. The stove was the best we have had in PV & we have rented at a few different places. Because it was the storm season, there were torrential rains and some water leakage from outside wall came into the condo, but the minute we notified Reggie he had people arrive within the hour to take care of everything for us. He was so attentive and really cares about his renters. As soon as we arrived he called to make sure everything was in good shape. Thank you so much for making our holiday a great one. We highly recommend this rental, and enjoyed it so much that we have already booked for this coming fall.

Cute condo, but a very disappointing stay!!!

  • 1 of 5

This was our 5th year to PV. We have always used VRBO and have never been let down before. Every condo we have rented always had fresh drinking water, toilet paper, hot water and adequate towels and wash clothes upon arrival. This place had none of these. We also were under the impression the condo had WIFI and TV. WIFI is a major priorty since international phone use is very expensive. We had to use the neighbor's WIFI most of the trip and it was off and on most of the time. The TV was broken, it didn't even turn on. The condo was very dirty and not well maintained. No maid service available. Lights had bulbs burned out, fan remotes needed batteries, silverware was old and dirty. The seating in the living room was very uncomfortable and when we wanted to just chill, we had to lie in bed to be comfortable. It was just all around a major let down.

I had emailed the owner several times expressing my disappointment and he told me that I was "confrontational". Yes, I was upset. Not cofrontational. No wifi! That's a big deal. After the 4th day or so it started to work, but not as well as the neighbors. We just used the WIFI down on the beach, which worked fine.

We love PV and will return next year. But never will we stay here again and I would not recommend this condo to anyone!

Owner's Response: I have never had "guests" of this caliber in my 7 years of ownership. The only truthful thing here is that the TV had broken during their stay and since they had checked in on Christmas Eve it was impossible to find a repair service or buy a new one until the following week.....From the time they entered the Condo I received email after email complaining about unfounded and untrue issues....example - the wireless did not work yet they managed to email me constantly somehow (they never seemed to be able to enter the correct password), and they did have a back up.They stated there were no wash cloths , dish towels or regular towels...my cleaning service confirmed this to be untrue as there were 17 towels, several wash clothes , and about 4 dish cloths. and 2 beach towels. they complained that the stove was broken (I explained it had to be lit manually)....the silverware was brand new as it had been replaced by my previous guests who had been there for 6 weeks prior. Absolutely none of the complaints were valid upon checking with my cleaning service except, in addition to the TV issue, the toilet tissue had not been left .... we immediately delivered a couple of rolls until we were able to buy some additional (remember It was Christmas eve when they arrived) The complaints did not stop during the entire stay....as soon as we followed up and addressed an issue another would arise...all unfounded so it became obvious what was happening here. Yes, these guests were extremely confrontational unhappy individuals for reasons other than their stay in my comfortable condo.... I offered them a partial refund although I had rented the condo to them for a very low rate (for the New Years period and allowed them to make monthly payments) Everything possible was done to correct any issues (although there turned out to be few legitimate ones) and make their stay a happy vacation.In return I was constantly bombarded with outright animosity about totally manufactured "problems". The Condo was left (by them) in a horribly FILTHY condition damaged as much as possible....17 towels and all 4 sets of sheets scattered all over the floor..everything was in disarray the day bed was broken, the air conditioner was left full blast with all fans and lights in the condo on...so as to waste as much electricity as possible and cause additional expense... decorative pillows pulled from their covers and left on the floor..... as a host I have never experienced this caliber of guest.

This apartment is the perfect location if you want to be near Blue Chairs and be in Old Town. One thing: the Key for the gate is not for 325 Amapas. Take the double set of stairs to the right of the Farmacia and the first gate to the right is what the key is for. The apartment is the 1st one to the right as you go up the stairs.

There is no clock or clock radio, so bring one with you if that is important. (There is a clock on the wall that wasn't working. I replaced the battery and it still didn't work).

Bed was comfortable. Sofa? so-so. Kitchen was .completely adequate. Reggie (the owner. Disregard "Clay's Apartment" on the sign at the front door. This is Reggie's place) was very helpful with suggestions.

I would highly recommend this property for 1 or 2 people.

My Favorite Place to Stay in Puerto Vallarta!

  • 5 of 5

Great location in Puerto Vallarta: safe neighborhood, close to the beach, and conveniently located near many restaurants.

The owner, Reggie, was extremely accessible and genuinely cared about providing the best experience while staying at his property. He happily answered any and all questions I had, whether it was regarding the actual booking process or the local hotspots.

As for the property itself, it is very well maintained. The grounds are kept up and not overgrown. The floors and furniture were all clean and in very good condition. Almost everything was provided: dishes, pots/pans, paper towels, etc. The internet connection the owner provides worked flawlessly.

Most importantly I felt safe, secure, and did not run into any issues during the course of my entire stay.

I have stayed at this property twice and plan to stay at this property again!

Our best romantic vacation in PV

  • 5 of 5

The condo is really comfortable. King size bed is really great for rest, so comfy. Unit really clean and fully equiped. Really enjoyed the full slidding doors that opens up all the unit to enjoy the all day sun and breeze. The Windows on the side of the condo gives a stylish look. Owner is really opened to new ideas for the condo and bougth the items that we suggested. he sent several email to us to verify if everything was ok. The communication with him was great. The roof top terrasse with the pool is so great and the views from it are fantastic. We really miss the condo with his charm. Cannot wait to go back next year. I highly recommand it.
