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

The casa is clean and beautiful, the location is superb, the community is friendly but the most appreciated part of our stay was Audrey, Lee and Chawnalee. The owners of the villa and their daughter have mastered the art of taking care of guests! Our group of 14 ranged in age from 5 to 80 and we all would return... More

Dulce Vida is like an upscale hostel. The owner is well traveled and knowledgeable of the local area. You will give up a bit of privacy especially depending which casa you choose. For example, the maid will show up as early as 9:30 some days. This is a benefit as well. You will easily encounter the other guests, staff, and... More

We visited Puerto Vallarta for two days on our way to Sayulita, looking for some quiet and relaxation, coming from our busy Manhattan lifestyles. We were so happy to find Dulce Vida. It was quiet and relaxing during the day, the space was a perfect size, it had a great layout and awesome style. We would return in a heartbeat... More

I stayed at La Dulce Vida on new years. It was such a wonderful place, rooms were nice and clean, the service impeccable. I got sick a couple of days during my stay, and the owner came with food and checked in on me, I really felt safe and cared for. This is definitely the place I will stay on... More
