"Just returned from seven days in Nuevo Vallarta and had a wonderful time. Stayed in a 2 bdr/3bth and it was perfect - huge bedrooms and the bath in the master was almost as large, complete with jet tub. The full size kitchen was much needed as we skipped the all-inclusive option at the resort (by the way, we ate and drank to our hearts content everywhere we went, and didn't come close to the cost of what the all-inclusive would have cost us, not to mention the variety of eating at different places). For us, the highlight of the unit was the terrace and location of the unit itself, within the resort. The terrace was massive with three ceiling fans and the ability for sun/shade at most times of the day, and overlooked the pool. The unit was also very close to the beach which allowed us to keep the screen doors open and hear the ocean while we slept. As for location, it was a 90 second walk to the pool and just 2 minutes to the sister property, Flamingos; this essentially doubled the functional size of the resort with twice the pool, beach, and restaurant options - and, this is exclusive to Villa residents only, as Flamingos guests cannot utilize the Villa grounds. So, you can always choose between a quiet or more lively resort environment.
The last comments I'll make are around the location of the resort itself, within the Puerto Vallarta area. First off, you're at the north end of Nuevo Vallarta which makes it perhaps the most quiet stretch of NV - very few if any beach peddlers - yet just a 10 min drive to central NV. The resort is also just a 10 and 15 minute drive to central Bucerias and La Cruz respectively; check out both towns, as they both have charming, unique qualities and great restaurant options - and a much more traditional feel than PV or NV. Sayulita is a must and just a 35 min drive. Finally, PV is 20-25 min. depending on where you're headed. So, VLE is an ideal central location to many different towns.
Again, a great unit, resort, and destination experience - we'll be back!"
