Romantic Old Town Vallarta

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 - 4 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedroom, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4)

This two bedroom, two bath condo is located in Puerto Vallarta's newest and most desirable development. It is a gated community, professionally landscaped with around the clock security two blocks from Los Muertos Beach, the most popular in Puerto Vallarta. It is one block from Basillo Badillo also known as restaurant row and one block from Olas Altas, the heart of Old Town.

The development was built in traditional Mexican style. The entrance is on the ground level only a few steps from the street. All counter tops are granite, both showers are marble, the windows are stained glass. There is cable internet, a washer/dryer in the unit and large private balcony.

There is an infinity pool you can lounge around for hours, a state of the art exercise facility to keep you fit and a large palapa where you can sit for hours out of the sun and catch up on email or read your favorite novel.

The Owner and Development are not tolerant of the 'party crowd' so if your plans include copious amounts of alcohol and loud noise you would be best advised to look elsewhere. If you are looking for a quiet vacation in one of the nicest deveolopments in Puerto Vallarta this is the unit for you.

Please note: There is no smoking in the unit OR on the private patio.

What makes this condo unique

This property is perfect for those who want access to all the wonders and charm of Old Town Vallarta but who want to stay out of the way of the overall hustle and bustle of the tourist beach locations.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"After coming to Puerto Vallarta for several years, I got extremely lucky and found Selva Romantica. The unit is beautiful with a spaceous patio and great amenities. I didn't experience any of the loud club music that can be heard from the beach hotels but I still felt right at the heart of Old Town PV. I would strongly recommend this unit for families and small groups. Absolutely lovely!"

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Overall, this was a great choice. The place was a great size for my friend and I. We went during PV Pride weekend and the location was just right. Just down the hill from the pier, walking distance to all the restaurants and bars. I felt very safe and comfortable. The property was just amazing and will stay again. I made sure to experience the pool, gym and etc. The owner was great to do business with as well as the property manager. Cant wait until next year!!!!

Lovely Property Just Off the Beaten Path

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this property! Except for a little noise from the nearby construction during the day, the property was quiet and just far enough away from things to feel secluded and a bit removed from all the action. At the same time, the location is super convenient with a plethora of good eating within easy walking distance. The wonderful view from the pool area makes up for the lack of one from this particular condo in the complex. Many times we had the pool to ourselves and enjoyed sunsets up there. The condo sports a huge collection of media (books and DVDs) to keep you amused should you want time away from the beach or a night away from the clubs. The kitchen is stocked with anything you might need to prepare food should you want to shop and prepare your own - something we did one night when my friend was feeling a bit under the weather. We felt this was a real find and look forward to staying there again when we visit Puerto Vallarta.

Very convenient as just a few blocks from The Pier and great food and shopping and River Walk,Church

  • 5 of 5

Tastefully decorated 2 bedroom,2 bath condo with gorgeous patio for indoor-outdoor living. Despite the proximity to a busy street, we felt safe and heard nothing but birds and rustle of gorgeous tropical Plants in the breeze each morning and evening!The beautiful infinity pool on the roof top with views of the beach, the green covered hills and cityscape and(for now) the Crowned Church is where we spent our afternoons. My friends and I had the most wonderfully relaxing vacation at Selva Romantica Parasio#1. Located so conveniently to The Pier and restaurants and for walking and sightseeing. Did not want to leave and can't wait to return.

Wonderful Condo

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 couples that stayed a month in this Condo. Absolutely loved it and the property it is on. Very comfortable and a fabulous huge deck which we made so much use of. The pool area at Selva is gorgeous with views day or night that left us wanting to see it daily.

Well managed property and any questions we had were answered promptly.

We would not hesitate to rent this Condo again in the future

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

This condo just two blocks from Los Muertos beach is such a delight. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was stocked with everything you need for a great visit. The outside patio was very spacious and sunny. The community infinity pool was clean and beautiful with great views. We'd recommend that more towels be provided than one per week, but otherwise the property was wonderful and highly recommended.

Wonderful Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Paraiso #1 for 9 nights in mid-May, and couldn't have been happier with our choice! Upon arrival, we were met by Mavy, the property manager, who showed us around the condo, answered our questions, and provided keys. She noted that the tv was not working but said she had contacted a repair person who would be out to fix it within the next couple of days. (Being without TV for two nights wasn't an issue for us; we had plenty of books; but we appreciated her follow-up.) She then took us on a tour of the grounds and the pool area, all of which were lovely, and introduced us to the resident cat, Rocky.

Mavy checked in with us several times during our stay, updating us on the tv repair, letting us know when to expect the housekeeper, and making sure everything was working well. She was helpful without being at all intrusive. In addition, our interaction with owner Andrea Hanson prior to our arrival couldn't have been better. She sent information and answered all questions we had.

The condo complex is well-maintained on beaufiully landscaped grounds. The view from the pool area is fantastic; we didn't miss not having a view from the condo itself, and we loved the huge patio with the historic fig tree that overlooked it. The layout of the condo was great for two women traveling alone; nice for each of us to have our own bedroom and bathroom. We've always felt safe traveling in Puerto Vallarta, and staying here was no exception. We have recommended the condo to several friends, one of whom has already booked.

In all, a great vacation. We have been going to Puerto Vallarta for many years, always staying in the hotel zone, but now we can't imagine staying anywhere other than Selva Romantica Paraiso #1.
