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.

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.

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.com
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.

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.
