About Kevin

I am an original owner. I have remodeled both bathrooms and we do continue to update our condo to keep it fresh and comfortable for all. I've enjoyed staying at the El Dorado every year. Great location and great friends/owners in the building, and wonderful staff.

Kevin purchased this condo in 1987

Why Kevin chose Romantic Zone

We vacationed in Puerto Vallarta in the 80's and fell in love with PV. Who doesn't dream of living on the ocean, or being someplace warm in the middle of winter!

What makes this condo unique

We've made many friends with both the residents and tourists of Puerto Vallarta. Its been our home away from home for many - many years!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Emi - If you keep the doors closed and the air conditioning running the condo will stay cool.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a great stay! We are lucky to have daily maid services, as well as living in a secure building. Being on the beach, and having everything either next to you or within walking distance is a great luxury. We look forward to having you come back.

Excellent condo right on the water!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 just stayed here this April (Semana Santa) and had a wonderful time. We were within walking distance of everything and loved having the beach so close! The weather was incredible and when it did get a little hot, the AC in the bedrooms worked great. The condo has everything you would need and I loved its "Mexico charm". The staff at The El Dorado was great and we never had a problem with the wifi or anything. The cleaner, Erika was wonderful as well. Sand toys were there which was a plus for my kids. Highly recommend!

comfortable, convenient location, somewhat dated decor and amenities

  • 3 of 5

Spacious unit, fabulous view especially of sunsets! Older building could use updating of pool and common patio areas. Second bedroom suite and kitchen also in need of updating. If you have mobility issues access to beach in front of building is a challenge. Once you get down to beach, the boardwalk is a fabulous path along the length of beach. We enjoyed the restaurants and shops in the "romantic zone" but it could be hectic at times.

Absolutely Fantastic Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this wonderful unit! The location is perfect, the ocean views are amazing, the pool is lovely, and the unit is spacious and gorgeous. Two large bedrooms with incredibly comfortable beds. A great sized living area, dining area, kitchen. Everything you need and more. An easy walk the the very best areas of the Romantic Zone. Quiet ocean breezes at night, without any disturbance from street noises found in other areas with late night folks. The owner was a delight to deal with, right from the very beginning. Kind, considerate, helpful and thoughtful. The staff at the desk were polite and so very nice. Always smiling and friendly. They truly reflect why we love the kindness of the Mexican people. We were lucky to find this gem, and would go back anytime!! Thank you Kevin!! You're amazing!

Perfect Location with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect Condo for 4 people. The Condo is on the second floor overlooking the pool and the ocean. It was very clean, comfortable and has everything you need in the kitchen. Great patio to have a drink listen to the ocean and people watch. The staff and the owners really made our short stay very enjoyable. The only thing I can complain about is, we did not stay long enough!! We will be back!

Also, I read on one of the reveiws someone complained about the "pool noise". Not true. If you have or been to any pool there is a pump running, that is just a small background sound. You can hear the waves over the pump. If that puts it into perspective.

Candlelit tables on the beach lend a romantic ambiance and offer the exquisitely enjoyable opportunity to enjoy fine dining with your toes in the sand. The owners of La Palapa have recently taken over the restaurant in our building at the El Dorado ( Here they serve lighter fare and price, but still have the highest standards in quality and presentation.

Many beach activities to enjoy like parasailing, jet skiing and swimming. Walking distance to town and shopping. Enjoy the local farmers market on the weekend.
