A horrible choice

Posted 20-Mar-2015
Pros: balcony view
Cons: just about everything, including the defects mentioned above.
Location: Everything is a five minute walk down the hill to the malecon.
There were many things wrong with the property. The room had a faulty big screen Tv that the the staff eventually swapped out for a cheap portable. The Internet only worked in the room 20 percent of the time over four days. The staff said since the internet was 'free' it was a bonus whenever it worked, as opposed to a utility like water or electricity that guests have a reasonable expectation of receiving as part of their room payment. On Sunday morning, the hotel shut off the electricity for four hours to do maintenance, which meant no way to cook using microwave or appliances in suite. And when it rained on Sunday afternoon and throughout the night, the roof of our room leaked profusely.

Great place but definitely not a resort style .

Great views from balcony. Wifi Free. Large fridge in the kitchen. Staff friendly. The only downside to this hotel is the stairs and no elevator. Could easily walk to the boardwalk and great restaurants, a little steep walk for people that have problems with hills. All in all I would stay there again.

Very Satisfied

Posted 09-Mar-2015 on Hotels
I enjoyed my stay at Casa Anita. The staff was exceptionally friendly, my bed was comfortable and the view was spectacular. Casa Anita has lots of stairs and would not be a good choice for someone who is physically disabled. Overall, Casa Anita is a great place to stay. I'll go back.

Didn't want to leave Puerto Vallarta

Posted 11-Feb-2015 on Hotels
This is not your swanky, all-inclusive hotel. But for us it was just what we wanted. Easy walk (across a somewhat busy street) to the beach, restaurants, street food, shopping, and all that Vallarta has to offer. The price was great and the people were wonderful. I'd stay here again.

My stay at Casa Anita was fantastic, I stayed in 2 different rooms during my stay and while both very different they were clean and had everything you'd need (especially impressed with all the pots and pans). As other reviews have noted there are a lot of steps which is true but I found it quirky and funny, if this would be an issue for you; this is not the place to stay. Additionally Casa Anita is located just off a fairly busy road again if it's not car noise you'll have street/music or something else going on in PV so it wasn't a bother. I found the stairs down to the beach and being just off all the action nice and relaxing. The staff was very friendly and did a fantastic job with housekeeping.

Great Views - Poor Owner Managing it.

Posted 21-Jan-2015 on Hotels
The good thing about this hotel is the View since from most rooms you can see all the way to Punta Mita, Location is good but next to a busy highway, only few rooms have AC so you have to sleep with the windows open or ceiling fan. The Staff was very great with me, i would of rank it better but on my check out the owner was there and since they change me to another room ( since the ceiling fan was not working) she was telling me that i needed to pay the difference and wanted to charge me more and had an attitude (totally unacceptable) i had to wait about 15 minutes for her to call by cellphone who made that decision for her to say it was fine for me to go.. That's Ridiculous poor thinking. Also you might have to walk from 45 to 98 stairs up to get to your room after a few days that really become unconformable

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!!

Christmas visit

Posted 29-Dec-2014 on Hotels
The main problem we experienced was the noise. The bathroom and sleeping area had openings to the hall which allowed excessive noise to prevent restful sleep.
