"My husband, our 15 month old daughter, and two of our friends and their 21 month old son, recently stayed in Nuevo Vallarta at the Ocean Terrace. We visited for a week and were sad to have had to return home!
Before our arrival, I communicated often with the condo owner, and he was a pleasure to work with. He even provided a suggestion of a service that we could rent pack n plays to be delivered for our children to sleep- which was a huge relief! If you have small children and this could be of help to you too, check out Baby Vallarta. They have just about everything you could imagine, including diapers (we also had these delivered!), and their customer service was great.
The condo itself was exactly as the description and photos showed. It was clean, well maintained, had WiFi, and everything you'd need to make a nice meal at home. The balcony was amazing and provided lots of people watching and relaxing!
Having traveled with small children, we had hoped that the nearest store that was within walking distance had been a little closer. It was about a 15-20 minute walk. It was definitely manageable, but we had hoped it was a bit closer as kids make things more complicated. That being said, there were multiple store options available that would have been just a short cab ride away. In terms of restaurants, there were several within walking distance, and we made sure to try each of them. At the recommendation of the condo owner, we went to Fajita Republic (twice!) and loved it. Dynamite, right next door to Fajita Republic, was fantastic too. Right beneath the condo, the onsite restaurant, offered Italian food. Honestly, we had hoped for authentic Mexican food, but it was delicious nonetheless. And, there were 2for1 margaritas during happy hour! :)
Ultimately, we would recommend the Ocean Terrace condo to anyone and everyone we know! It was a beautiful place, with incredible infinity pools, and was literally just steps from the ocean. Michael and Doreen, the owners, were so kind and gracious to have let us use their condo for our first family vacation. We are excited to plan our next vacation and will definitely be making a trip back to the Ocean Terrace!"
