Villas Paradise is a small group of condos in the lovely village of San Francisco (known locally as San Pancho) north of Puerto Vallarta. It is in a magnificent position and just a short walk from the beach. However, the units have not been maintained (I suspect from the state of the wiring, plumbing and general structure that they were not that great to start with). While the owners advertised dishwasher, television, washers and fully equipped kitchens, we found none of these available - one wineglass for a three bedroom unit! Hot water was not turned on until we asked for it, neither was bottled drinking water (a necessity in this area) provided automatically. The non-resident manager was helpful when approached and the maid service was efficient. A sense of humour would help when staying here, especially when confronted with the eclectic art work in the Penthouse unit. We will return to San Pancho, but another location.
