I stayed at the Casa for 2 weeks over Christmas several years ago but after recently recommending this to a friend I thought I would post my review here. We booked late so only Casa 7 was available. It is not as nice as the other suites (we got to tour them all as people checked out) but it certainly... More

We needed accommodation in a hurry and on an off chance, after reading all the reviews, were able to book into this gem! I love architecture and design and this little inn lives up to the pictures. The pool is so unusual and beautiful, with original red mosaic tile which was imported from Italy. The history of Casa Dulce Vida... More

I first visited here on a yoga retreat about ten years ago. I walked in and thought, this is my dream location. There are six apartments of various sizes, all with their own kitchenettes and bathrooms around a pool, patio and garden. Each room is uniquely furnished, and each has its own special qualities. We have stayed in Casa 5,... More

It's been about 2 months since my wife and I stayed at Casa Dulce Vida during our honeymoon in Puerto Vallarta and, having time to reconsider our trip, I really have to wonder if we could have found a more perfect place to stay while we were in the city. I'm coming to the conclusion that we really couldn't have.... More

This was our second time staying here. The first time we came with another couple and had their large Casa 4 with the balcony over looking the pool and bay. This time we decided to splurge and have the same large area even though it was just the two of us. Upon arrival there is fresh guacamole in the fridge... More

My wife and 3 y.o. stayed for 4 night and were just amazed by the place! So much so, that I hesitated to post this review and let the secret out. Amazing architecture, impeccably clean, super helpful and friendly staff, great location for families. I am already thinking about when we'll return. Ps, I created a trip advisor account just...

My mom and I stayed in Casa 4. I was stunned when we walked in. It would be my dream home. Plenty of room for several people to stay. Great spot to head with friends or even have a wedding. Great layout and amenities for entertaining and has the feel of old Puerto Vallarta. The owners couldn't be sweeter and... More

We needed a place for two nights at the end of our vacation. I do not think they usually rent for only two nights, but we got in. We got up graded to room 2. Very big, the size of some apartments. For the price you do get a lot. The pool was just outside our door. We were told... More

I was looking for an exotic place for my children, myself and my husband to stay before and post wedding. The location was perfect. The rooms very spacious, well decorated and clean. We had a beautiful view of the Bay of Banderas, which was a perfect setting for wedding pictures. We felt safe and secure at the location. All of... More

If you want to share an amazing experience with someone, stay at Dulce Vida. Step outside to cobble stone streets. Blocks from the beach. Close to wonderful restaurants. Everyday my mom and I took a different route for a day walk that always turned into a fun and memorable adventure. Dulce Vida is owned by beautiful people. It's an amazing... More
