My wife and I stayed here for 5 days in March 2015 and had a great stay. The building is a short walk just up the hill from the centre of the old town/"Romantic Zone" where there are lots of great places to eat, and a 5 minute walk down some nearby steps to the beach. The building is very... More

I spent 3 nights at Villa Olivia in Feb 2015. I had a great experience and highly recommend staying here. The villa was beautifully decorated; amazing tiling throughout and so charming. I stayed in a unit on the 3rd floor with a patio that looked out towards the ocean. I really enjoyed having breakfast every morning with such a stunning... More

I hate to give a glowing review because it means there's a greater chance I won't be able to find availability next year. But Denise and Villa Olivia deserve a six-star rating. Denise and her sister and brother--originally from Quebec--own and run this gem of a hotel. They are super relaxed and delightful, but they understand Western travellers' expectations and... More

Have friends staying there. Wonderful spot, clean updated and quiet. Prices very reasonable book early as it is usually filled for FEB-April. Nice kitchens that are well laid out, roof top pool and located a 5 min walk to good restaurants. If you are looking for a nice place with housekeeping facilities this is it

This was our second time at Villa Olivia. We really loved this place. It is very well located in the Zona Romantica. Our room was a bit small, but very well appointed and clean. We had room 3, the only one without a stove. But it has a fridge, microwave, coffee maker and a toaster, so all we need to... More

I'm quite fond of Villa Olivia having stayed there many times over the last 10 years. Since the last time I was there, they've added an additional floor including a roof top with a pool, and 360 view of the city behind and the bay in front. We watched the international fireworks competition a few nights. It's a stunning view... More

We stayed in Villa Olivia for 4 nights in late September this year and it was a wonderful base for our time in Puerto Vallarta. It's location is great for exploring the town, the facilities are fantastic (loved the rooftop cooking area and spent many hours in the rooftop pool which has great views out over the city and ocean),...

TripAdvisor again helped us to find the perfect accommodation. We had traveled to Mexico before, but never to Puerto Vallarta. I knew very little about PV except that it seemed to be a quite popular destination. I studied all the reviews, picked the Olivia, and was delighted with our choice. Our room, with balcony, looked out over the ocean.The room... More

Gracious hospitality and lovely company from both staff and guests. First trip to PV, location conducive to mingling with locals and walking Old Town. Staff very helpful with dining tips, directions, grocery shopping, Farmer's Market, etc. (most guests were longer-term & stay at VO every year). Hotel quiet and private, well-maintained, safe, unpretentious & elegant. Reasonable rates. Rooftop deck great... More
