“Outstanding long stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2012

We stayed in a well appointed Studio Room (15) at Casa Anita for 7 weeks and enjoyed EVERYTHING about it. So much so, we have been missing Victoria, Kenna and Sacha, resident pets of which we became so fond! Sonia, Geraldo and Rogelio were a delight to interact with every day... always courteous, helpful and genuinely friendly. We appreciated the generous hospitality basket, the water & beer delivery to the room & the thorough cleaning of the room by Adele. The Wednesday BBQs with complimentary margaritas are such a great idea....Bill and Anita are great hosts and the event offers you an opportunity to meet your neighbours. We enjoyed the book exchange & appreciated the lightning quick service when a problem arose with the ceiling fan... it was fixed in less than 20 minutes! (no need for AC....the ocean breeze is so much nicer)
The views are spectacular....and the balcony was a perfect place for our daily breakfasts and lunches The new sliding doors were so soundproof that we did not have any problems with the road noise... you do get used to the daytime traffic noise after a few days....We enjoyed our well stocked kitchen ....The king sized bed was firm...and just as we like it! Nice to be able to use their washer/dryer instead of lugging it into town....
...and Sonia, thank you for coming to say goodbye when you were off-duty...we REALLY were touched by your thoughtfulness! We will visit again for many years to come :) See you soon!

We had a wonderful stay; Corona #6 was very clean and the maid service was excellent. Large apartment including all kitchen appliances and a slendid view of the ocean from the balcony.

Just returned from a nine day stay at Casa Anita, and we couldn't have had a better time. The hotel is exactly as described on their web site, and the owners and staff are just as friendly and accommodating as everyone has said in past reviews. We stayed in room 18 and absolutely loved the views from the huge balcony.
It's true that there are 132 steps from the parking lot to the room, but they were a breeze, after the climb from town (there's a work out, in 85 degree sunshine, after spending 5 months in the Canadian winter weather.) We wouldn't have traded a thing, for one of the "wall to wall people" type of hotels down on the waterfront. As more often than not, at great little places like Casa Anita, the people that we met here felt like friends that you've known for years, after just a day or two.

Thanks soo much to Bill, Sonia and and everyone at Casa Anita

The staff is friendly and knowledgable, when you need something they are able to help you. The view, you cannot get enough of, just fantastic. The rooms come with everything you need,very comfortable. Its located so close to the beach, the walk is nothing.

Our stay at Casa Anita was great. We loved the fact that we were within walking distance to the beach and great places to eat and drink. Everyone at Casa Anita was very friendly and helped us find fun acivities to do while in Puerto Vallarta. They arranged for us to go Zip Lining in the jungle and arranged for us to take the "Rythems of the Night" cruise. We stayed in Casa Anita 18 and the view was incredible-especially the evening sunsets. The maid service was great-very clean. I can't say enough about the great hospitality we received. There are alot of steps to climb but worth it because of the beautiful view that you have. This place is charming and we can't wait to go back.

We stayed at Casa Anita for 13 nights in January 2012. We loved it. The view is just to die for, however there are lots of stairs. We were in Anita 18, and from street level to our room there was 132 stairs !! If your not fit, you won't like this place. The room was great, clean and quit large. The bed was confortable. The maids are great, our linen were changed daily. The room is well furnished, however the cookware is poor quality and the non-stick pan had seen better days. The staff is great, the Wednesday BBQ is also fun. The hotel has 2 pools, both are in the shade most of the day so the water is cool. The climb back to the hotel from Zona Romantica can be quit challenging. Lots of stairs and all uphill, plus you have to walk for about 100 feet along the main road, which is pretty "rustic". After 2 days of that, we took a taxi for the remaining of our stay, around 40/50 pesos. But we still had 132 stairs to our room.

Will I go back? No, too many stairs. It doesn't remove anything from the place. The hotel is great and clean. The staff is friendly, the view is amazing. But the stairs are a big draw back.

I scored 3 stars for the location because of the stairs. But the view !!!!

Had a really pleasant stay here over Christmas. The suite was roomy, very comfortable and clean and the staff was excellent and helpful. Our balcony view was incredible and we ate all of our meals there, enjoying one of the world's real gems, Banderas Bay. Was particularly impressed in our original booking by how easy it was to contact the owner with questions while booking online. Her reply was quick and friendly. There is no denying that there are stairs to climb here, and we were a bit daunted on the first few times up and down, but returned home feeling a whole lot more fit then when we arrived in Vallarta. Nice little walk to the beach and the old town. I'd stay again and would recommend it to friends.
