Prior Guest comments "quotes"

The Icon is a beautiful, super clean and modern property. Paul's condo was perfect!

"Our family had the best time in Puerto Vallarta at Paul's condo in Icon Vallarta. We were there over Christmas and we loved that they piped in wonderful Christmas music throughout the resort."

"Paul's condo was exactly like the pictures! Everything was comfy and functional."

"I cannot emphasize enough how magical this place is. No pictures I have seen have done it justice, trust me - it's even more beautiful in person."

"Everything about this condo was perfect - the views of the pool, ocean, the food, it was quiet and secure. The hospitality was 5 stars all the way around."

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect! It was everything the pictures show and a comfy place to stay. We stayed for 10 days and it was great! We did our laundry, made our meals and had food delivered as well. The staff for ICON Vallarta was extremely helpful with everything and the place was really secure. When we took taxis places, there was never a confusion on where we were staying which is reassuring so it's always easy to get back to Icon Vallarta. The condo had amazing sunset views and a wonderful breeze.


We were there during New Year's so the complex was pretty busy. They had a implemented a rule on not being able to hold chairs by the pool or beach. It said that after 15 minutes security would remove the towel and release the chairs. We never had a problem with our towels or seats and we did watch security remove items but they would wait much longer than 15 minutes, which I thought was fair. I have been to other resorts where people would hold spots all day and not show up so I was okay with following the rule, especially during a busy week. Towards the end of our stay, there was always plenty of spots.


As for the hotel service at the bar and the pool, once you realize that you have to order from the waiters and not the bartender you are set. We chose to get our drinks directly from the bar. The waiters working the pool area did take some time to return. We had a great experience with the staff, very friendly. They remembered our names after the first day. Also, we took our own drinks down to the pool as well.


A couple of things about other reviews: The towels were great and soft. The bedrooms had 2 sets of curtains, one sheer and one blackout. The hot water was really hot and we did have 4 people staying. We didn’t have a huge issue with running out of hot water but we never showered at the same time. The TV remote has a button on it to change the language to English, if available. We watched a lot of TBS, if the TV was on. The washer and dryer were great and we used them almost every day.


Overall, this was 5 stars for us. We loved it and we would book it again!

AMAZING! The Icon is better than advertised!

  • 5 of 5

The Icon Vallarta was perfect in every way possible! Our stay was from 9/15/17-9/20/17.

Beautiful resort, steps from the beach, perfect location, great staff! It's only a short cab ride from the airport and downtown. Restaurants, shops, grocery store, the marina, and more are all within 5-10 minute walk! The condo itself was spectacular! Ultra clean and modern, the perfect place to relax with a great view! Also the owner/property manager were more than helpful with suggestions on how to make our Puerta Vallarta vacation great!

Puerta Vallarta itself blew us away! Its the perfect blend of Mexicos culture with some hints of Americanized influences. From excursions, restaurants, shopping, tequila tastings, the beach PV always has something new and amazing to experience!

I'll be returning to the Icon Vallarta very soon and I highly recommend Puerta Vallarta in general!

Perfect get away !

  • 5 of 5

Last minute trip to PV and first time at the ICON. The condo and condo complex were perfect, we felt like we were staying at a five star hotel. They have a concierge that made great restaurant suggestions/reservations. ICON has a private beach bar and provides drink service at the pool(s). The gym has a very contemporary design and equipment that overlooks the beach. The condo was perfectly placed- overlooking the pool and the lush very well maintained landscape. Great sunset views from the living room/patio. We will be back, Thank you!

Decent but better options are available for families

  • 2 of 5

First time in PV and loved the city! While the location of the Icon is great and the views from this condo are good, this particular unit left a lot to be desired. We had ripped/ stained towels, stained curtains, and floor mats. Beds are not comfy and by far, the worst feature was the unavailability of hot water for 4, since the tank is so small. Also, kids not allowed in the lukewarm hot tubs, steam room did not work in the gym and the less than stellar service by the poolside left a lot to be desired.

Owner's Response: Good to hear that you enjoyed PV! but I am disappointed that the ICON and my condo fell short of your expectations. I will have all of the issues and suggestions attended to- especially the condition of the curtains, towels and bath mats. The majority of our guests/reviews were much more positive and I am committed to making sure that every guest has a great experience. Thank you for the feedback
