About the property

PV named one of the "Best Cities in the World"! (Conde Nast Magazine)

Welcome to 'Rico et Bonita Vista' on the 12th floor of SunScape Resort on one of the most beautiful beaches on Banderas Bay. Our condo offers you THE best of both worlds, a private home with all the amenities of an all-inclusive resort. The only thing better is the view ... outstanding! Enjoy your morning coffee on the spacious balcony listening to the birds and watching Puerto Vallarta slowly wake. Be sure to keep an eye out for the frequently seen dolphins and whales in the bay ... all right from your balcony on the ocean. Enjoy the vista of the lush Sierra Madre mountains and El Centro (downtown) as well as the entire Bay. Even more impressive is enjoying an evening cocktail witnessing one of the greatest shows on earth ... the sun setting across the Pacific Ocean ... spectacular! The nighttime view is equally beautiful with the lights of old towne, watching the lit up pirate ship drift across the bay and enjoying the nightly fireworks.

Inside, the suite boasts a sunken living room with artwork by local artisans, ceramic tile throughout, a fully equipped kitchenette with everything you need to prepare a romantic dinner on the balcony, granite counters in kitchen and bath, a large marble shower, 2 double beds, quality linens, air conditioning, built in safe, snorkel gear, iron/ironing board, hairdryer, large balcony with planters, bar-b-que and much more. The bathroom sink and vanity are separate from the shower and toilet room for ultimate guest convenience and privacy. In addition, we provide you with beach accessories - reclining lounge chairs, umbrella, cooler and even a boogie board!

We are a hop, skip and jump away from WalMart, Costco and Soriana (just like Safeway) to stock up on your food and beverages and only a 10 minute cab ride from the airport. Directly beside the resort is the brand new La Isla shopping mall. A car is never needed in PV. Ride the bus right outside of the hotel to anywhere for only 7 pecos (less than a dollar). It will take you to El Centro (downtown), to Zona Romantica (for markets), to the Marina, to Illa Cuale, fishing villages, Nuevo Vallarta, Bucereas, Salulito or Los Muertos.

Anyone staying at an all-inclusive is really missing out on all that PV has to do and offer. However, the condo also offers you that option as well. You can chose to have a pit-in beach day being served all your drinks and provided 3 daily meals in a choice of 3 on-site restaurants. As our guests, that is available to you at a considerably reduced rate of $50/day.

Our goal is for you to enjoy PV as much as we do - it's safe, has so much to see and do, has a vibrant and friendly culture, the mountains surrounding the bay are lush and tropical and PV is known for it's consistent weather - sunshine and warm temperatures. The dining experience is second to none, there are so many great restaurants to experience whether it be beach palapa eating with your toes in the sand or a more upscale restaurant - you will never be served a bad meal here.

CBS Marketplace ranked Vallarta a "Top 10 Safe Haven" spot. Come visit, enjoy the cosy condo, and see for yourself that the scenery, weather and people are all beautiful!

About Blain and Linda Drever

We are Canadians who first visited PV in 2009. We have also had the good fortune to holiday in Hawaii, the Mayan Riviera, Honduras and Barbados. Upon returning to PV in 2014 we felt like we had 'come home'. You simply can't go wrong with this vacation destination ... PV has it ALL! We are happy to act as your personal travel agents and provide you with all the 'inside information' about this friendly, quaint city. Our wish is to provide for your every need, including extras like binoculars, his 'n hers snorkel gear, reclining beach chairs, umbrella and cooler.

Why Blain and Linda Drever chose Hotel Zone

Location, Location, Location! We are close to EVERYTHING and we sit on THE best swimming beach in the bay! This 5 star resort is impeccably clean throughout and extremely well maintained by SunScape with 24 hour security. In addition, concierge and money exchange services are right on site. You will find the other guests and staff very friendly and welcoming.

What makes this condo unique

Most important, our condo is high enough that your sunset view across the Pacific Ocean is unimpeded. Any condos lower than 10th floor do not get sunset view. Also, our condo is right near the elevators, which is a huge bonus not having to walk down a long corridor. In addition, being on the south side of the building, it is very quiet on the balcony, unlike at the north end where the noise from the neighbouring resort ventilation system can be disturbing.

Stunning view great condo

  • 5 of 5

Love the amazing view from the condo, it is high enough so you can see over the hotel to the whole 180° view of the peninsula. Blaine and Linda communicate very well and are very helpful. The condo has great amenities and kitchenware. I would highly recommend staying here.

Very nice place and a great value.

  • 4 of 5

Very clean, nice place. High quality entertainment such as 11 man mariachi band, tradtional dance demo, magic show, etc which is included in your stay. The resort is very lively both during the day and evening. My family really enjoyed our 8 days in Puerto Vallarta.

Owner's Response: It really is an added bonus having all the daily entertainment included and we feel we do offer good value - glad you feel the same way. Donnie, happy to know you and the girls had a great time - next time bring your wife!

Amazing Comfort and A Great Day(s)

  • 5 of 5

Our expectations staying at Sun Scape Resort did most certainly exceed our expectations. Linda and Blain have a beautiful place on the twelfth floor and we were able to do pretty much everything from long walks on the beach to take water taxi, to use local bus transportation, to enjoy a day just sitting by the pool and take in all of Mexican culture. It was a beautiful trip and great accommodations. And with all of your advise, I believe this trip was just what the doctor ordered after a long Vermont winter Thank you Linda and Blain.

Ah-h-h!! What An Amazing Ocean View!!

  • 5 of 5

Well, we felt right at home as soon as we stepped into the condo! It was comfortable and cozy and had everything we needed and wanted...blender, slow cooker, beach chairs, umbrella, etc.

Now the best part......the ocean....we loved seeing it and hearing the waves! We couldn't wait for our morning beach walks everyday! The view of Puerto Vallarta at night was amazing and the ocean view during the day....priceless!! We ate all our meals on the balcony outside and watched the spectacular sunsets every evening!! What a life!!

Having friends and family over for a visit was easy. My grandson loved the kiddie waterslide and pool area.

This condo has the best location in PV between the malecon and marina. Buses are at the top of street, Costco a 20 min walk away, and restaurants close by.

It was a pleasure to talk and deal with Linda who was very helpful. John, the property manager, dealt quickly with any issues that arose with a great sense of humour! Linda has compiled a book filled with great tips for enjoying your stay.....restaurants, things to do, etc.

We loved our holiday and were sad to leave! Thank you for making us feel so welcome!

Rent a private water taxi (called a Panga) to take you to the south end of the bay to enjoy many private beaches with no roads into them. You can enjoy whale watching, parasailing, zip lining, rappelling, bungee jumping - take in the South Side Shuffle every 2nd Friday evening, enjoy twofers at most beach bars during happy hour, don't miss the Saturday morning Farmers Market in Old Towne ... so much to do and so little time! Or, just relax in a pool side lounger then have a sunset massage on the beach.
