if you dont like the 'cheesy' tourist areas and all that goes with it, this property is perfect. It is very secure. Very filtered from the noise and crowds. We walked to the best movie theater,outdoor mall, great restaurant with all amenities you would find in US. Airport only $2.75 US away. Walmart is too far to walk with groceries, but $2 Uber. Uber is less than half price of taxis. Again, the highest recommendation!
Please read before booking
This was our second year at the peninsula. The first year was great (they had no gates or manned security at the front entrance the first year we went) Many things have changed in our opinion. First, to be fair, the unit is nice and well stocked. The service provided by the owner was great.
The condos have their own security. This has nothing to do with the owners rules so you are basically at their mercy while staying at the condo. It’s very difficult to get in and out of the facility due to tight security. You must provide your bracelet, room number, tower, name, and whatever else they want EACH time you leave or come in. The taxi or Uber also has to show ID. If they won’t/don’t have ID you must then walk in and carry everything you have to the condo as they aren’t permitted on grounds without ID.
You also can’t have drinks in the pool, not even a bottle of water, you will most likely be told to turn down your music at the pool even if it is not loud. You will be hassled at every turn for something or another.
We spent two nights listening to our neighbors party and scream with loud music next door. We complained (as did others) yet nothing was done.
They’ve torn out all the plants that used to line the back walls and attract so many hummingbirds. I was told they were trimmed to prevent them from growing into the pool but indeed they are completely gone and have been removed. It looks a bit run down just since last year.
They are working on the pool now so it’s only about half full. For the two weeks we were there it was roughly up to my upper thighs.
The bar isn’t open unless it’s high season. The gym was closed for “maintenance” although we only saw someone working on it once.
There’s also a curfew (never could figure out what time it was) that we missed one night and had to wait outside for a long time for someone to let us in. Your security card doesn’t work as the doors are locked with a key. We called on the box outside over and over until someone finally let us in.
It is nice that you can walk to some restaurants that are nearby, but honestly we won’t be back. It makes for a very stressful and not fun vacation time. I did discuss my concerns with the owner and the manager about halfway through our trip. I was assured all the actions put in place were for my safety and didn’t bother most guests...so maybe I’m just being silly.
We have traveled the world extensively and are a very laid back family. Worst vacation we’ve ever had.
We are the number one rental at the Peninsula Vallarta Resort. I think that sometimes guests don't realize how important these reviews are for the owners of the property. A one star rating is ridiculous for a property that has consistently maintained a 5 out of 5 star review history.
This guests sums up her review perfectly with her comment..."maybe I'm just being silly."
Security is very important in Mexico, and all of our guests usually appreciate the high level of security that the Peninsula provides. Showing ID and a wristband to enter the resort does not seem excessive to me.
After midnight, guests are asked to have their taxis drop them off at the administration office at the garage level, as the main lobby doors are locked at midnight for security.
the pool is a massive 200 yard pool that spans the entire length of the development, the level was dropped 12 inches to accommodate re-tiling in an area at one end. We offer deeply discounted rates for the low season, as this is the time of the year when some maintenance is completed.
You can eat and drink around the seating areas and lounge chairs at the pool, but you cannot eat or drink IN the pool, as we do not want food or drinks spilling into the pool. That just seems logical.
It just seems like maybe this is not the resort for this one guest.
Beautiful condo with beautiful pool and nice gym.
The facility is beautiful and the plus or minus depends what type of trip you are looking for is very strict on rules. Geared towards older people looking to relax without the hustle and bustle of all inclusive resorts. Downside bar was not open once and no where on site to get food or drinks on the property.
Beautiful PV condo
We just had an amazing stay in Peninsula Towers close to the Marina. Condo was fabulous and close to all amenities. The views from the balcony were amazing, thanks Blair for sharing your beautiful condo, we will be back soon.
Could not have enjoyed the condo more. Can’t wait to return
A Beautiful piece of Art on the Ocean
Very Beautiful Condo and Grounds. Amazing views from the main Balcony and Master. No problems at all. A bus ride away to the main areas of Old Town. Bus ride to the Marina. Close to everywhere and far enough away for peace and quiet. The photos here are accurate. The Condo is clean and has supplies. Very good Security. Steps away from the New, Isla Shopping Mall and Starbucks.
As my Mother put it... What more do You need...
Thank you for Sharing your piece of Heaven.
We would love to stay again.
The Peninsula Vallarta is located in the Hotel Zone, right on the beach, beside the marina where the cruise ships come in. 8 min drive from the airport. Lots of amenities close by, Starbucks, Walmart, Galleria Mall.
