Lovely but a workout

Posted 14-Mar-2016 on Hotels
Lovely villa just outside of "old town" Puerto Vallarta in Romantica Zona. Staff were very friendly and accomodating. The hotel itself is great perched on a hillside but not for the weak or invalid due to many stairs to get to the reception office on the 3rd floor never mind the rooms. We thankfully were only on the 4th floor. The only other concern is that it is right on the busy Carratera (highway) and the noise was pretty constant late into the night, which didn't allow us to leave the doors open for more air and coolness.

What a letdown

Posted 28-Feb-2016
Cons: Service
After asking 5 locals about the location of the hotel, including a taxi driver, I finally found a shopkeeper who pointed out the way. The street ended with a 4 flight staircase which connected to a dead end street, 2 more blocks and a turn to a cul de sac brought the hotel into view. The location once found was fine; the service was not. Two days of power interruptions and two day without water dampen my enthusiasm. Management was absent.

A place with authentic Mexican feel.

This was our 2nd time here, enjoyed it for the most part but we had a room with no AC don't think I'd do that again as the ceiling fan over the bed was noisy and only worked on 1 speed. We also had a unit close to the road so was very noisy. They didn't like that we booked through the site and I believe you end up with the lesser rms when they're booked up. Won't stay again unless can specify unit staying in. Could use some better pillows.

A good stay

Posted 19-Feb-2016 on Hotels
This was our sixth trip to PV and first time at Casa Anita y Corona del Mar. We had a two bedroom suite in the Corona side (#1). This suite is the lowest so has the fewest steps. Be warned! There is no elevator. The room itself was fine. Lots of room for two couples. We had only one bathroom but this was never a problem. Full kitchen which was great and very large terrace with our own charcoal bbq. AC only in the bedrooms and could be noisy at times. Typical Mexican hotel mattress. Not great but ok. The hotel is located on highway 200 so there is some traffic noise but not at annoying levels. About a 10 minute walk downhill to the south end of the Malecon. The walk back is a pretty good hoof uphill but we didn't mind and you could always get a cab. Overall a positive experience and we would stay here again.

Great Place - Just to many stairs

Posted 16-Feb-2016 on Hotels
This a great place to stay in Purto Vallarta with one major draw back the eighty steps to get to the main lobby. The hotel is up some steep hills then you have climb all those stairs. As folks get older or anyone out of condition the access to this hotel presents a bit of a challenge. If they could install an external elevator to the lobby level the problem would be solved. Unfortunately as much I loved this hotel, it's great service, fantastic view and reasonable rates I just couldn't say here again because of the stairs. If your in good shape and don't have an issue with stairs it's a great place to stay.

Older property but well run.

Really enjoyed staying at this property on the hill. Rooms are spacious and the staff are friendly and very attentive. Very good value. Only negative would be the traffic noise from the nearby road. But not so bad at night with windows closed.

Charming, rustic and quirky

Posted 09-Feb-2016 on Hotels
This property is the opposite of the American style hotel/timeshare experience which dominates much of other parts of the city. It was started in 1968 by a Canadian expat pilot and his wife. They still run the property and live on the premises, helped by some very able and friendly local staff. We stayed in one of the smallest units, which had a small patio but no view (Corona del Mar #4.) Would have given a higher mark for cleanliness if not for a lingering smell of dampness, toward the back of the unit where the kitchen and bath are located. There seemed to have been a window in the bath which had been replaced by glass block. Being able to open a window at the back of the unit so air could pass front the front and out the back might help to clear out humidity from the shower. The pool was quite cool, which I found refreshing after lying in the sun. Staff told me they were working on the heater and that it usually was warmer. The water seemed clear and clean. There is a higher terrace on the Casa Anita side, with a small pool which was slightly warmer. There are lounge chairs which look toward the reception area and pool, which I found odd considering the beautiful view over the railing in the other direction. I just turned mine around and enjoyed the panoramic view of Puerto Vallarta and the Bay of Banderas. There was absolutely no noise or disturbance of any kind while we stayed at the property.
