Lots of character and a terrific location

Posted 19-Jan-2015
We spent a full week at Casa Anita. I did my homework ahead of time and read all of the reviews. I wanted something economical, not "resorty" and within walking distance to the beach and the Romantic Zone. Casa Anita did not disappoint! The only complaint I saw in the reviews was about the amount of steps... Come on people! Don't be wimps! We made our reservations online through a promotional deal. When we arrived, they gave us a complementary upgrade. We ended up with a two bedroom suite; one of the beds was a loft, that allowed us to wake up to our beautiful ocean view. We made use of the kitchen and spent several meals out on our little balcony. We also had several nights where we enjoyed the charming, warm pool. The staff was friendly and they kept the entire facility spotless! A few tips... There are many places to lounge on the beach all day. Spend your time at La Caretta. Romie will give you great service, food for a good price and welcome you home every time you visit. Make online reservations to Ocean Grill; take a bus to Boca to the end of the line, take a free water taxi out to a beautiful private beach, a restaurant with an amazing view and wonderful food. Spend the money and go see Rhythms of the Night!! The experience was worth every cent and then some! Book any tours with Jose Lewis. He is honest, fair and a crack up! If you spend any time on the beach you will see him. He wears a red base ball hat. All locals vouch for him. Enjoy!!

Nice place, friendly staff

Posted 19-Aug-2014
Pros: The pools and the staff.
Cons: Weak wifi signal. I had to walk down the steps outside to get a signal on my phone.
Location: It's a little bit of a walk (10 mins) into town. It's also easy to catch the bus to other areas/towns from here, like Mismaloya and Boca de Tomatlan
Casa Anita is a nice place to go with kids. The pools are great, and the staff is able to help make recommendations of places to see that are more off the beaten track. We had a nice stay.

Great Find!

Posted 21-Jun-2014
Pros: Great character and people. Super clean. If you need anything, they will accommodate.
Cons: Elevator, just kidding.
Location: About 4 blocks to the beach or the Romantic Zone. Buses and taxis nearby. It's all nearby.
Enjoyed 2 weeks in Anita #4. First, yes there are 90 steps from the street to the room, but the bed is a pillowtop, you know how rare that is. The room has two fans that work great. The view off the small balcony is amazing! It is right on Hwy 200, I expected a lot more noise but was surprised. Slept in no problem. Never shut the door to the balcony the whole time. Staff is amazing and very helpful. Everyday they change sheets and completely clean the room, completely! The office staff was so friendly. I'm 57, no spring chicken, but the steps were not that big of a deal. They do have 2 pools, both very clean. Kitchen is there if you need it, I just used the fridge. Hard to beat for the $.

10 day stay in Puerto Vallarta

Posted 23-Apr-2014
Pros: Moderate price,friendly staff, and cleanliness.
Cons: A little more water pressure in the shower
Location: Located in Old Town with beach, Malecon and variety of restaurants nearby. We took advantage of local transit in PV and to Sayulita and Boca
Arrived in late evening. Staff helpful and very friendly. Suite fresh and clean. Hotel well maintained and good security. The only possible downside was the number of stairs to suite and a 10 minute up or downhill walk to beach and Malecon. Because of the hillside location we had a great view and cool breeze.

Leuke kamers bovenop de heuvel

Posted 04-Mar-2014
Pros: prima wat je voor het geld mag verwachten
Cons: op de site vermelden dat je nog btw moet betalen en zo dus een onaangename verassing voorkomt !
Location: dichtbij oude centrum en strand, bus stopt bijna voor de deur
Kamers simpel en schoon (iedere dag schoonmaak en schone handdoeken), interieur mexicaans :) Ligt bovenop een heuvel (berg) en je kuitspieren krijgen een goede work out ! Na een klein stukje lopen met een lange trap bijna direct op het strand ! Enige vervelende aan de reis was de verassing dat er nog btw betaald moest worden over de betaalde prijs ! kwam dus neer op een extra 200 euro !, stond bij nadere inspectie wel op de site van Expedia Totaalbedrag kan inclusief of exclusief belastingen zijn. Maar had dit niet verwacht ,in ieder geval nog nooit eerder meegemaakt ! en een minder prettig begin van de vakantie !

Great staff and spectacular view!

Posted 17-Feb-2014
Pros: We loved the friendliness of the people, the spectacular view and lovely lay out of the buildings and gardens.
Cons: Ongoing maintenance is required in all facilities. We did wish we had a better shower head in room A5 but expect it's turn will come.
Location: We loved the location because the view over the Old Town and Bay were spectacular and interesting. The breeze was refreshing & appreciated.
There were so many things we loved about this accommodation but the staff were the best! The view is over the top and all the stairs a great built in fitness program - one we needed and certainly gained with at least 2 trips daily down into Old Town. Our only complaint was the traffic noise at night. One mention of this and we were assured that efforts will be made to improve it again. Many options are available here and with an equal variety of prices - all most reasonable.

Trust the reviews

Posted 14-Feb-2014
Pros: Clean building, reasonably priced and staff friendly.
Cons: Install an elevator :) Phones rather than walkie talkies for staff ( too loud in early am). Update website. Wednesdays BBQ could use some work.
Location: Up up in the hills. Rooms had great views at one time. You need to walk down down to town or to the bus. From there you can do pretty much do anything
We had no pool for our entire stay. There are not 3 pools as they suggest. There is one small pool that is in the shade and broken. ( only 6 pool chairs of which 1 and a half get sun in the late afternoon) There is another "pool" the size of a hot tub, unheated and far too cold to relax in overlooking the main office (awkward). The 3rd pool/tub is attached to a room and also unheated. The hotel is literally on top of highway 200, so the road noise is crazy and annoying. The view is now obstructed by the 'Signature Pinnacle' and another high rise construction project in progress....and noisy. From room 16/17 when you sit on your patio you are literally looking at your neighbor ( luckily we had great neighbors)... There is no privacy and it was very small and awkward. We signed up for the stairs...but.....it definitely limits what you can do throughout the day.

Affordable hotel close to the beach

Posted 02-Feb-2014
Pros: Close to old part of town and the beach.
Cons: Adding an elevator but that isn't very feasible
Location: Close to the beach and buses going by regularly. Close to Zona Romantica. Good restaurants nearby. Lots of taxis driving by. Lots of walking on cobble
Staff very friendly and helpful. Close to the beach and buses but on a main highway so very noisy and construction going on nearby. Lots of steps to go up and down. Close to the old part of town. Good cooking facilities.
