Overview

About the property

This listing is for a 3-bedroom/3-bathroom “Spa” condominium at the Grand Luxxe Spa Tower in Nuevo Vallarta, or for a 2-bedroom/2-1/2 bathroom corner "Villa" (with an additional sitting area, sometimes referred to as a third bedroom). You can also reserve a 2-bedroom/2-1/2 “Spa” (without the additional sitting area) for $25/night less, or a 3-bedroom "Residence" Loft or "Presidential" (located in the beachfront "Punta" building) for $175/night more.

Check-in on 3/29/2019 at $675/night is for a 3-bedroom "Presidential" with two (2) dipping pools on a wrap-around deck, and maximum occupancy of twelve (12). Other check-in dates at $500/night are for a 3-bedroom "Spa" with one (1) dipping pool on deck, and maximum occupancy of ten (10). Otherwise, please feel free to inquire on any other type of unit at this resort.

If you can view this listing, then I should have weeks available to rent - but (being a timeshare), I would need to check with the resort if the resort has your requested dates available. I only rent three (3) of my weeks each year, and then I block my calendar around June (when my weeks are gone) - so (hopefully) this listing won't appear during the last half of a year (unless you search without dates).

Other than the "Presidential" (only in Nuevo Vallarta), unit types and prices here for Nuevo Vallarta are the same as for my Riviera Maya listing (#1123151).

You can find floor plans to compare the 3-bedroom "Spa" (photo #17) and 2-bedroom "Villa" (photo #18) in the "Photos" section of this listing. Both the 3-bedroom "Spa" and 2-bedroom "Villa" have the same maximum capacity of ten (10) persons of which up to eight (8) can be adults (12 years and older), and come with a King bed in each of two of the bedrooms (although a Villa can occasionally have two doubles in its second bedroom rather than a King). Bedding also pulls out from under each of two (2) sofas in the living room, and the top of the sofas can be made into bedding at night as well.

Differences are that the "Spa" unit has a third bedroom with two (2) Double (or Queen) beds and a third full bathroom, while a "Villa" has an additional 1/2 bathroom and sitting room (with sofa, TV, phone, etc) that converts into a private sleeping area for two (2) additional persons at night. The "Villa" is a corner unit with a little more wrap-around view of the outside grounds, while the "Spa" is a middle unit that also has a massage room and table.

The resort counts an "adult" as 12 years and older, but does not count an "infant" (less than 3 years old ) in their maximum capacity limitation.

There is a free shuttle from the airport to the resort for when you first arrive at the airport in Puerto Vallarta, two-for-one massages, gym and wet areas to relax, as well as Wi-fi and your own floor’s concierge all included during your stay.

Tower 1 is closest to the beachfront "Punta" building, while the newest tower 5 with "Loft" units is furthest inland. The "Spa" units are all located in tower 4 (on floors 4 - 9) and the "Villa" units are in towers 1 - 4 (on floors 1 - 9) as well as some now in tower 5. The south facing side of tower 1 has more direct views of the ocean and pool areas (photo #6), while the other towers have more distant side views of the ocean, facing inward (west) towards the resort (photo #12) or outward (east) at the Ameca River (photos #4 and #9) . You can find a map of the resort (photo #3) showing how these towers are arranged against the Ameca river on the east side of the property. Your accommodation is assigned at check-in (based on availability) - although I can request (not guarantee) whatever you prefer - but I don't think that you'll be disappointed wherever you stay at this resort!

You can book up to twelve (12) months in advance (for best availability), but probably not less than five (5) months ahead of your check-in for the higher demand months of November through March (if you can be flexible with your dates).

Please note that a "Punta" unit should be reserved farther ahead than other types of units, because there are only four 3-bedroom units on just three (3) floors, and the top floors are for the founder/developer of Vidanta for when he's in town. The "Punta" is also popular for it's proximity to the ocean - which you can see from the first photo of this listing (captured from a "Punta" balcony).

If you are a golfer, other owners may be able to offer you free or better golf deals than me - my contract only allows me to offer you golf at $75/round (per person).

I am a "Platinum" member which allows you 2-for-1 massages, gym, tennis, your own floor's concierge and morning tea/coffee, and (probably not as important) 20% off golf academy lessons, 25% of golf merchandise, and $75/round of golf.

Travel assistance for up to ten (10) persons is available for $114.84/week.

I'm sorry that I can't give you my phone number or email, but please understand the perception and concern that this would cause VRBO/HomeAway.

About Tim

I'm a CPA nearing retirement - working as a tax analyst for a software company. I live in Playa Del Rey (Los Angeles) CA with my two mixed lab (sibling) rescues - Cody and Wiley - and don't want to be away from them for too long - so I'm here listing a few weeks that I can't use myself, and don't want to see go to waste.

Tim purchased this condo in 2013

Why Tim chose Nuevo Vallarta

For me, it's always been about the expansive grounds with all the beautiful foliage, lakes, and wildlife - as well as the numerous walking trails and swimming pools - some areas lively and bustling, and others where you can just find a place to yourself.

Initially, I owned at Nuevo Vallarta's Mayan Palace (which then extended to where the Grand Luxxe is today) - then upgraded to the Grand Mayan for access to its Waterpark - then the Grand Bliss which was a little quieter and newer - and now the Grand Luxxe so I can use all the facilities and go wherever I want within the resort.

I also knew that I might not be able to use all of my Grand Luxxe weeks - so it's great that I pay a "usage fee" only if I reserve a week - unlike other resorts that require an annual fee, regardless of whether a week is used or not.

What makes this condo unique

The property has a great little shopping center with a deli, bakery, chocolates, yogurt - even a grocery store if you want to eat in - so you aren't required to purchase a food package, and you can pay-as-you-go at the many restaurants on the property.

Personally, I like the food package option, because it's hassle free and only about $300/week per person for six (6) breakfasts and six (6) dinners or lunches. The package covers breakfast buffets with everything imaginable, and all kinds of restaurants to choose for dinner (including the Azur French restaurant and Custom-Made Burger which are probably my favorite).

Notes:
The huge grounds are really beautiful - they must maintain all of this in the wee hours of the night when we're sound asleep - because the number of landscapers you'll see during the day couldn't be all that is required to keep these massive grounds so impeccably perfect! If you get tired of exploring on foot, simply hop on one of the complimentary chauffeured golf carts that zip you wherever you want to go on the property. There are many different types of swimming pools - big, small, secluded, bustling - from infinity pools to Vallarta's Waterpark with a lazy river, Chichen Itza water slide, and two wave pools with sandy beach. At poolside, simply take one of the stacked towels from a nearby table (without having to show your room number) and enjoy one of the little complimentary popsicles they hand out during the day. Enjoy Sanctuary during the day, or at night with live music. There's something here for everyone!
