“A16”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

We stayed at Casa Anita with my boyfriend for three weeks, during christmas 2012. The first two weeks were very quiet, christmas week got a bit busier. All in all we loved! our room, A16. The fridge was noisier than an airplain,(I think they had that fixed at the end), the balconies are very close to eachother, and the sheets in the bed were...not nice. But aside from that, everything! else was great. The cleaningstaff was excellent, so friendly and the room was perfectly neat every day! The reception staff was nice, even if we did´nt have a taxi waiting for us early in the morning departure day, although we´d payed for it. The nice guy in the night reception took very good care of us, and got us to the airport just in time. Also after 36 hours of flying, we had to carry all of our luggage to our suite upon arrival(110 steps) upstairs, although we were promised that someone would come and help us. Anyway,that doesn´t matter, we were late. One thing we found a bit strange, was to be told how much to tip the staff. That anyway, has a lot to do with the fact that we come from Finland, and in Scandinavia/Northern Europe, the staff gets payed very well, and the tips are also included in the wages.
The view, yes, it was great, but not as great as all the reviews i´d read before we got there. It has a lot to do with the fact that they are building a tall modern hotel complex just int "the middle" in front of the view. That is not any fault of the hotel, but it´s a shame.
The overall feeling at Casa Anita & Corona del Mar is very laid back. The equipment in the suites is great and the staff is friendly. So all in all, we really recommend this to people who don´t care about "hanging out at the pool" but enjoy going around and enjoying the city and the cities close by.

We spent a month at Casa Anita and find the location and accommodation terrific. You are minutes from the Zona Romantica with more restaurants that you can get too as well as anywhere along the beach. Malacon is also minutes away. Need to be in shape as there are many stairs both at Casa Anita (no elevator) and to get around town, but the bus service is great and there are taxi's everywhere. We love the two pools, very refreshing after a day of walking or sunning at the beach. The staff here at Casa Anita are very helpful and friendly. The apartments are fully furnished and kept spotless. Victoria is also a treat to visit with and make sure you bring her a bit of cheese. The Wednesday evening bbq/get togethers are fun and the margarita's are yummy. On your next trip to Puerto Vallarta think about staying here.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less traffic noise and better view of the ocean and sunsets.

We have stayed at the Casa Anita 3 times now and enjoyed every minute of our stay there. We have stayed in a 2 bdrm and a studio as well. The view from Anita 18 is wonderful and worth the 133 steps to the unit. Corona 6 is also awesome. The management is very freindly and helpful. It is very clean and the kitchen has everything you need. Great location! We will be back again!!!!!

I would stay there again, I walked every day, everywhere. Be prepared there are lots of hills and steps but, that is Puerto Vallarta. If you are not in good shape it will effect you. I loved it tho. The view from every area of the hotel is great!!! It's a bit outdated but it's clean, friendly and safe.

Room Tip: The room above the office is the place to stay!!!

I had bad experience at Casa Anita. Good price but I would rather spend a little more and get better Hotel. Staying at this hotel destroyed my whole vacation. I was not able to move to other hotel because I stayed there during New year, hotels were booked and too expencive. When I got to Casa Anita shower did not work in my room. I asked the manager few times to fix my shower but they never did. I had to take a shower staping on my own dirt. Also the manager was crazy but the rest of the staff was nice. I recommend staying away from this motel if you want to enjoy your vacation.

This is our new "home away from home" when we travel to PVR every year. This is the firm time we stayed in these units, we usually stay accross the street at a much more expensive condo.

There are so many things to love about it. The property is very clean, the prices are very reasonable, the staff is SUPER nice, and the location is great. We were in unit 12, which was small and had a small balcony but still loved our room. We will try a different room next year. Each room is totally different.

A total perk for us, since we love to BBQ, for $5 they will have the items needed to start any grill on the property, at any given time, for $5. This avoids you having to go to the grocery store and lug around charcoal and ligher fluid.

The only thing this property is missing is a good pool. There are two small ones, and they are very chilly since they are shaded most of the day.

They will definitely be seeing us again next year!
