We spent a week on a family vacation at Puerta al Mar. Very easy booking process. We opted to add the pick-up/drop-off service for an additional fee and made a grocery shopping stop on the way - very handy! However the local Ley is only 2 blocks away from the condo so if you forget something or run out, not an issue at all. The condo building staff could not have been nicer! The condo itself is exactly as shown. The stairs leading to the upstairs bedroom would not be easy for elderly or small children. Each bedroom has its own air conditioning unit so you can spot cool a particular room. We were told electricity is very expensive in MX so you are only permitted so much useage per day before it is deducted from your security deposit so use everything sparingly. We were assigned 1 cleaning during our stay but my husband’s stomach was sour so he opted to stay in and rest so we cancelled.
The pool and pool area were clean and well kept.
Getting to the beach is as easy as opening the gate. It’s a rocky section and the water was rough (maybe the time of year?). We chatted with some expats and they said the closer you get to Playa Los Muertos the calmer the waves and easier for the children to navigate.
The beach parties and local bars can be noisy but we brought sound machines from home based on previous reviews. Only 1 night was it too much but I bet those folks were having a blast haha
It’s true - you don’t need a car at all. We walked everywhere! Frankly, it’s the best part anyway - it’s how we found some great gems to eat at and people watching is always a fun pastime.
I hope to visit PV again and would look into staying here again.
This was our first stay at the Icon, and we will definitely be back . Check in was very easy; the condo was exceptionally clean, and both the bed and living area were very comfortable. The staff at the Icon are very friendly and accommodating. The view of the mountains and PV was spectacular. Having access to both the pool and the beach was great. Location is central for accessing other areas of PV either by bus or taxi. We had zero issues with the property during our 4 week stay. Our only request would be access to several additional English TV stations.
