Studio at magical, quiet location at Playa Gemelas south of Puerto Vallarta

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this studio on a solo trip in late June/early July 2017 and have already made plans to return later this year. I feel like I stumbled upon one of the best kept secrets in the Puerto Vallarta area with my luck at finding this place at beautiful Playa Gemelas in the Girasol Sur condos. The building is a little older (30 years I think) but is kept up meticulously by the friendly and attentive staff (and 24 hour security). Not all rooms in the tower are renovated as well as Viviane's place and I also think her studio is in the ideal location on the north side facing the prettier of the two little beaches that also shades it from the strong afternoon sun. From the warm welcome from Victor at the front desk when I arrived to the friendly daily greetings of the waiters at the restaurant (Roberto, Alex, Jose, and Miguel), I felt like I had been welcomed to a special family here.

I was travelling trying to keep expenses low so having a local bus that stopped right in front of the condo as well as an affordable restaurant right on the beach were great conveniences and I could also cook some meals in the condo (it's hard to see in the pictures but there are two range top electric burners in the kitchen). The bus takes you right into the "zona romantica" in about 20 minutes where you can walk the malecon or sample the great restaurants in the area (one of my favorites was "Mole de Jovita"). Access to do your own laundry and screened windows are other pros of this location to consider.

From the balcony of the studio, I watched nightly epic sunsets, dolphins jumping on a couple of mornings, fish jumping in the water, pelican flybys, lightning storm shows, and even saw a good sized sea turtle one evening in the wonderfully clear water on the beach below.

This place was pretty quiet while I was there as it is the "rainy" season and I was frequently one of the only customers in the restaurant or walking on the beach in the morning. All I can say about the online weather forecast that makes it look like it rains constantly this time of year is "don't believe it"! It rarely rained other than at night and although the days are mostly cloudy, I came home tan and less worn out than a trip I took in May when the sun was so strong that I felt like I was cooking.

Great communication and fast responses with Viviane as well! Not an "all-inclusive" experience by any means but exactly what I wanted. Highly recommended if you hadn't figured that out by now!

Relaxing

Older property but well kept, grounds & garden area immaculate. Staff were wonderful. We were there off season, so very quiet. Shop at resort has everything you need and prices are reasonable. Food was excellent at the Palayapa.

Beautiful place, friendliest staff, delicious food

  • 5 of 5

I was so impressed by this place. I had to change my day to come out because of a funeral and she offered to let me still stay the full seven days if I could work it out flight wise. I couldn't but was impressed by the kind offer. The room was great with a perfect view of the ocean. There was a king sized bed and a couch with a roll bed under it. A family of four could have easily stayed there. I stayed by myself and it was perfect. The staff was extremely friendly. And the restaurant served delicious food. I will come back! The beach was gorgeous.

Vacaciones de Lujo.

  • 5 of 5

Amanecer viendo y escuchando el mar y disfrutar de los mejores atardeceres NO TIENE PRECIO. Estuvimos 9 dias en este estudio; el cual esta muy completo. Vallarta no es famoso por tener buenas playas; pero sin duda El condominio esta ubicado en las mejores playas de la Bahia; con arena fina y aguas cristalinas las cuales se prestan para hacer snorkel, lo que disfrutamos mucho. El edificio con muy buen mantenimiento; siempre limpio... muy tranquilo.El personal muy atento. jardines muy cuidados. Todo excelente.!! Muchas gracias Viviane por hacer posible nuestra estancia. Esperamos regresar pronto.,,

Great location, great staff!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Girasol Sur for a week and loved our time there. Viviane provided outstanding service and let us use our original booking as a credit towards this booking when our original trip was cancelled due to a hurricane. The complex is very well maintained as is the unit itself. The listing description is accurate and everything was in working order. Just a warning, the bed has an EXTRA firm mattress. There was also no plunger in the bathroom but this made for a funny moment when we borrowed one from the neighbor. Other than that, we had no complaints about the room unit itself and would absolutely stay there again. The onsite restaurant had fabulous views but we found the food to be rather bland and a bit pricey for what you get. The restaurants in town were much better including Tacos Revolucion, Los Muertos Brewing and Joe Jacks Fish Shack. There is a bus stop directly out front that you can take to town for 8 pesos each way. We found this to be a good way to get around and never encountered any issues. The day trip to Las Caletas was amazing and we'd recommend for all. Overall, we had a wonderful stay and would stay both at Girasol Sur and in this unit again. Bon voyage!

Owner's Response: Dear Megan A big thank you for your so nice review. I just wanted to inform you that you had no need to seek for a plunger inside the condo because at Girasol Sur we have a help desk. People are there to help you regardless of what failure Regarding the bed you must know that here in Mexico we all have hard beds: it's a local tradition. Fortunatly you write me you will come back. Thanks. Hope see you soon Regards. Viviane

Excellent unit at beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure to stay at this beautiful unit for 10 days. The inside of the unit is even nicer and more spacious than the pictures. The staff was friendly when we arrived and the place was very clean. The view out of the balcony is just unbelievable! Our favorite part of the trip was sitting on the balcony watching the waves. The beach right outside of the condo is a lot less busy than Playa de Los Muertos in town, and we really enjoyed the more local atmosphere here.

I highly recommend this unit to anyone, especially if you want to be out of the tourist zone. The location sits nicely between PV and Mismaloya. Viviane was a great host and promptly answered all my questions whenever we emailed her. We were very happy we chose her condo for our trip!
