About John

It is my mission and personal commitment to each and every one of my guests to provide the best vacation experience that can possibly be had in this beautiful city and country. Every item within the property, all of the information I provide to my guests, every service offered, and every question answered I provide from the perspective of my guests. If it would make a vacation easier, more complete or in any way better for me if I were the traveller, I do my very best to make it present and available to you as my guest. Having lived here for a few years I have developed knowledge contacts, and ideas that will hopefully be helpful and perhaps bring something new to the experience of even those who have been here multiple times before. Just thinking about Vallarta for your next vacation, and have a few questions? Ask away! I am always happy to help, even if you choose to stay elsewhere. I look forward to speaking with you and perhaps having you enjoy this as your home in Vallarta.

John purchased this condo in 2013

Why John chose Hotel Zone

Please see the comments about me. But it is all that you need and more, and an amazing home base, if you are like me, and come to a place to explore, and equally welcoming if you just wish to watch the waves, sleep late, and take long showers and walk to the ocean for a massage. This has everything.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely ADORED John's place! The views were fabulous, we had breakfast on the balcony every morning and return in the evening for our cocktails. John provided us with beach chairs and an umbrella so we could sit anywhere on the beach, rather than waiting for open seats. I would suggest to people that they venture away from the resort, we did the all inclusive for a day and weren't too thrilled by it, so for the other days we would eat out or grab a roasted chicken from a food stand and eat at the condo. The food truck park across the street is a must! Thank you, John, for being incredibly helpful and letting us enjoy a week away in your amazing place.

Owner's Response: Thanks guys for the review. I agree with you 100%! Vallarta has an absolutely incredible food scene from the Mom and Pop street vendors to 5 star dining. This is why I always urge my guests to get out and explore. All inclusive is a great convenience to have for days when you feel like lounging around but if you dont get out and experience some of the local cuisine, you are a missing a big part of what Puerto Vallarta is. Even if you happen to be feeling lazy, theres so many great places right nearby, the food truck park always has something new to try which is pretty cool as well. I am so happy you had such a good time and I hope to have you come again!

Cute condo

  • 4 of 5

Very cute condo with a spectacular view. The condo had everything we needed. John was a fantastic owner to work with and he made sure we had everything we needed during our stay. Checkin and checkout were simple. The building is old and going through a remodel on the outside. The biggest thing we didn't understand was that there is an option to buy the properties All Inclusive food/drink option at $50 per person per day, but if you choose NOT to buy this you cannot buy anything at any of the hotel restaurants, bars, etc. No drinks at the pool. That was disappointing. The condo was nice for our last two nights in PV.

Owner's Response: Hi Folks, Thank you for your review. And you are correct , the resort is an all inclusive resort so all hotel guests are mandatorily required to do all inclusive at a nightly price substantially higher than the private condominiums. However the resort has extended an excellent offer to our guests to purchase at 50 USD. This way you can choose any day you would like all inclusive and not feel as if you have wasted money on days you decide to explore Vallarta's incredible culinary scene. Even with choosing all inclusive for the day our rate still is well below the hotel nightly charge. The condos are much larger, with better views in many cases and are much more like a home with living rooms, kitchens and, at least in our case, much more well equipped with most anything you need. I hope that our listing did not appear deceptive in any way as we try to be as clear as possible about all policies and procedures for all of our guests. Thanks again and we would be vry happy to have you return.

Book it and don't look back

  • 5 of 5

I'm not certain I can add much to the praises sung by prior reviewers, but they are all spot-on. This place is awesome. And John, the owner, is even better. A great condo with a spectacular patio view. It's on the beach with a casual little beach bar with good food steps away, and is a quick (and inexpensive) cab ride from El Centro or Zona Romantico. While we didn't take advantage of the all-inclusive option, it's nice to have. Thanks, John, for a great stay.
