About Don and Lisa Andrews
We have been visiting Puerto Vallarta for almost 2 decades. We fell in love with the authentic charm, beautiful beaches, and the kindness of the citizens instantly. We are both veteran educators. Don is currently an Assistant Superintendent in a large suburban district and Lisa is starting her 30 year of teaching primary children. We have been bringing our kids to the Puerto Vallarta area since they were very young. Alex our son is working on his Ph.D at Vanderbilt University and our daughter Ashley is a student at University of Missouri studying to become a teacher. We spend our free time traveling, enjoying our dear friends at the Lake of the Ozarks and volunteering. This summer Lisa and her daughter volunteered at Casa Hogar which is an orphanage near Bay View Grand and at Pasitos de Luz, an organization that works with disabled children in the area. It is our hope to continue volunteering and bringing books and supplies to children in need in the Puerto Vallarta area. We love Puerto Vallarta and the convenience and beauty of the Marina Vallarta area and Bay View Grand.

We spent 6 weeks at this condo and loved every moment of our stay.
The condo has everything we needed to live and relax with. The Bay View Grand Is a wonderful complex, the pools were great and the grounds were superb. The bus was just outside and it is just a short walk to the Marina or grocery store. We are looking forward to our return to the BVG next winter.
We enjoyed this property very much. It was perfect for 4 people. Fernando the caretaker was there we when we arrived. He was very helpful and was available to answer any questions throughout our stay.
There were items available for us to use on arrival. The fridge had some staples for us to use. The kitchen could use a few items ie a teapot and kettle for tea drinking Canadians.
There is a good supermarket within walking distance and you don't have to go to walmart at all.
This complex is next to the airport but for us this was not a problem, a little noisy at times. The pools were beautiful , the gardens spectacular, and ocean views!
We loved our stay here! Transit right outside the gate, the Marina a short walk away, a relaxing beach time! The owners are very quick to respond to any questions.
We would definitely try to stay here again!
What a view!
The first thing you love about this place is the gorgeous view. The second thing is the continuous breeze which cools the whole place. We did not require the air conditioning the entire time because of this and the ceiling fans. The condo is very nicely appointed and has everything you need to make yourself at home. The pools are lovely and it was not crowded. The service at the snack bar/bar was very good - food was so-so - but it was still nice to have it as an option. You can walk in either direction on the beach but some of the properties make it a little hard.
The check-in process was really nice. They were waiting for us, welcomed us warmly and showed us everything in the condo.
The grounds are maintained beautifully. This comes at the cost of some leaf blower noise though. Also, there is a constant security presence. It was a little off-putting to me. Even though I know they are trying to keep people off the property, it felt a little like a compound. Also, if you just stayed here and didn't venture out - you would not know you are in Mexico - it could be anywhere. This part of the city was developed for tourists and it has that feel as opposed to an authentic Mexican feel. Cabs are easy though, and you can get anywhere cheaply, but there tends to be quite a bit of traffic. It took 30 minutes to get to the Zona Romantica for dinner.
So if you want a very nice condo in a safe building with beautiful surroundings, this is it. If you want a more authentic Mexican feel, this might not fit the bill.
Gorgeous Beach Getaway!!
This entire condominium complex is absolutely beautiful ! The grounds are very lush and looks like a botanical garden ! It is extremely well kept and clean and has the feel of an All Inclusive Resort. I loved having daily pool side service of food and drinks (at very reasonable prices) at the Cabana and especially loved that we had choices of 6 different pools to swim in. (All pools are beautiful infinity pools and heated in winter.) This condo is decorated with true Mexican flair and has all the amenities needed in bedrooms and kitchen to make your stay easy, comfortable and enjoyable! I loved the nice breezes coming in through the balcony and the views from the 4th floor were just amazing every day! Nice shaded balcony in afternoons made it so relaxing to just
hang out there and enjoy the ocean waves , pools, boats, and gorgeous grounds all around. I felt very safe on this property because it is gated and the security is everywhere patrolling 24/7. Also there is a bus stop very close by that runs about every 15 mins that goes all throughout town for cheap . (Taxis are always close by as well if you prefer that.) The Marina Vallarta is a short 5-10 min walk from complex and offers fantastic restaurants and shopping . I highly recommend this condo - you will not be disappointed ! (I'm planning on returning there again this fall!) 💖 PV!!!!
Puerto Vallarta Paradise
Bay View Grand is indeed grand. The manicured grounds, the gorgeous pools, the beautiful flowering shrubbery, the exercise center, the Snack Shack, the meticulously clean property, the polite and courteous staff and of course....the ocean and mountain views are extraordinary. This fourth floor condo provides all the accommodations you would need for a relaxing and stress free get away. The furnishings reflect the beauty of the ocean and the charm of Mexico. The balcony is the perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee or just relax in one of the lounge chairs. There's even a darling hot tub on the balcony. For those of you who need to stay in touch with the internet world, wifi is included as well as a local phone.
Little time is actually spent in the condo due to its close proximity to the Marina, the Malecon, the shopping and simply wandering the cobblestone streets admiring the architecture of the homes that surround it.
I personally enjoyed being poolside, watching the sailboats, cruisers and cruise ships come into port. Taking photos of the grounds and local sights was also inviting. You can never have too many photos of the sun setting.
The beauty, the people and the peacefulness of Puerto Vallarta bring me back yearly.
I highly recommend Bay View Grand and the luxury and comfort of this condo.
Relaxation & enjoyment
First time at Bay View Grand and it was lovely. Balcony was wonderful. Great view of the beautiful manicured grounds, the 6 pools (two heated), beach, Bay & mountains.Very nice having two bathrooms. The condo was very nicely decorated and it was great having Wifi/ cable and phone to US & Canada. Walking to Marina, plaza etc. was perfect, no need for a vehicle. Taxi & buses stop right out side. We were there for one month. It would have been nice to have housekeeping.
A 10 minute walk to the marina for wonderful shops and restaurants
