I had visitors renting Unit 1101B just these last two weeks. The owner in Guadalajara was behind on his maintenance fees, so the resort retaliated by invalidating the bracelets of the renters that allowed them to use the facilities, such as the pool and beach area. So their second week was spent restricted from the very activities they spent all... More

Just returned home to Canada on January 4, 2014. This review only pertains to C 606, which is owned and operated by Matt Ouelette.. Bay View Grand itself is a very nice complex. The common facilities, such as the pool and grounds, (hate the "fenced off beach", though) are beautiful. Security is tight, staff are kind, and I am sure... More

Just returned from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and am already planning my return trip. I have stayed with Matt Ouellette in the past and would happily return to this fabulous apartment. The location is terrific, the view is fantastic and the overall facilities exceptional. Unit 607C is fully self contained with everything you need. I have rented homes in PV before... More

This is a lovely one-bedroom one bathroom 814 square foot oceanfront condo located in the Marina Vallarta area of Puerto Vallarta. We've done remodeling to the kitchen/bathroom/bedroom areas. Brand new washer and dryer (from some reason the dryer didn't go on right away with the last renters but it's brand new and we did address the problem immediately.

We've stayed in E building, C building and B. Our favourite so far is B-301. Excellent fitness facilities (gym, tennis and beach volleyball, beautiful pools and great location right on the beach and a few minutes walk from the Marina. Full kitchens and nearby supermarkets mean you can dine in or dine out. We feel very safe here and have... More

We call Bay View Grand our winter home for 3 months ((Jan-Apr) each year for the past seven years. We have rented both one bedroom and two bedroom units, and have been in the same 2 bedroom unit in E Building for the past four years. We feel safe and secure at BVG. The security throughout the complex is excellent.... More

November 2012 we rented C607 from Matt Ouellette. I would not rent from him again. The condo was lacking in many things - lights burned out, lack of cutlery, glasses, refrigerator was not defrosted - made far too much noise until we turned it off, unplug it and defrosted it. Curtain in bedroom was tattered. Not thoroughly clean. Furniture is... More

They invited my husband and I this March and we were very excited to see their so called winter home. Every unit is decorated with different themes and decors.

We've been staying at Bay View Grand for 11 years now, staying in different condos just about every time. Our favorite location is in the B or C building, upper floors (8 or above) which provides a wonderful view of downtown PV at night and a bay and mountain view at night. Since there are fireworks over the bay nearly... More
