Reviewed March 18, 2013

We stayed here as a couple in Feb. 2013, and enjoyed all they had to offer, it was an amazing little place, tucked away from the world, but only a block to the biggest pool in the world...the beach and the malecon! The place was very qauint, lovely mexican style B&B, with the most oustanding staff and service you could ever wish for. They treated us like family and were so accomodating to all our needs. The food was amazing and good value for your money, breakfast, felt like being at home every morning and the courtyard is so beautiful, with the fountain in the centre.
In the back of the courtyard, is a lovely little spot where you can rest on the loungers and read a book or just relax. The rooms were impeccably clean and the maid was there every day to clean
rooms are air conditioned, big screen tv, fridge and huge bathrooms. We had a lovely terrace where we could sit and watch the world go by on mexican time.
Dinner was so incredibly delicious, the ceasar salad and home made soup was the best ever, and the dinner meals were more than outstanding, we had fresh fish and other items on the menu, all of them were good!! ... every nite there was live music in the background, which created nice ambience to the courtyard.... no complaints at all...
Jorge & ipilito and staff were the best hosts you could ever wish for and the staff, Roberto, Lugar,
Raoul were so kind to us and attentive as well as the others, cannot remember them all, but they were good to us and all spoke english.
Simone the bartender he too was amazing and friendly, and we enjoyed our happy hour time with him every afternoon... I would highly recommend this B&B and as well the restaurant, you can't go wrong.. We met others there that have been going there for over 20 years,and they still love it!
we will go back for sure... to this lovely little piece of paradise in Puerto Vallarta!!

Hubby and I enjoyed a delicious dinner last night at the Casa Fantasia. I had the Salmon A LAS BRASAS and he had the BBQ COSTILLAS. Both dishes were excellant. The food, lovely mexican courtyard and attentive staff made for a memorable evening. Jorge and Ipilito have made this restuarnt the "place to visit" while in PV.

We are staying at the B&B too. It is lovely as well! We highly recommend both to all! We will be back again and again!

This is a gorgeous restaurant. The staff rushes you some--but I know they have to make their money now--summer is long.

The food is decent--not outstanding. I ordered rack of lamb rare--it was grey meat. I would try it again. Our friends really like their meals.

Also, we were with friends; one said, "I only have 1200 pesos." He wanted to know if it would be enough; we told him it would. He paid his check with two 500 pesos as he wanted change for the tip. The waiter brought him change without 500 pesos in change. The waiter refused to admit his mistake. We got the manager; he did a count of the register. He came back and told us that the drawer balanced. Our friend's partner told him that he saw his partner put down 2 500's. Our friend had only 200 pesos left in his money clip. The owner/manager believed him and refunded his 500 pesos. The owner/manager said that he needed to fire the waiter; he said there was a 1000 peso mistake earlier in the week. So go as it is a lovely place; just be careful with your change. We live here over half the year and have been coming to PV for 19 years; this is the first time a mistake like this has happened. Glad the owner/manager rectified this.

Nice place for breakfast. Cute courtyard, very friendly service and and very good huevos rancheros.

Nice touch - they bring you a plate of fruit free of charge before the "main course".

I can't comment on the hotel side of the business, since I only had breakfast there - but I heard very good things.

Comida excelente y buen servicio, sin emgargo, la magia se acabó cuando nos dijeron que pedían el 20% de propina, lo cual me parece un abuso y fuera de lugar. Extranjeros o nacionales no deberiamos pasar por esto.

Excellent food and service, however, the magic went off when we were told they take 20% tip, it was an ugly joke. I will tell of the people living in the condo I work to be careful with this restaurant.

We enjoyed the meal at reasonable price under 300pesos for two.The service to our table very good. Like the setting in the courtyard. Our friends did not know about the restaurant coming to Puerto Vallarta very impressed. The Shrimp contained the grande size wrapped in bacon and the mahi mahi very tasty with garlic.

We absolutely loved our stay at Casa Fantasia. The place has loads of charm and the staff are all fantastic. The owner Jorge was there most of the time and is such a nice guy. The room we had was pretty spacious with a large roof terrace off the main room. The beds are super comfy and although basic and a little run down, the bathrooms are of a good size and kept nice and clean. Breakfast is included in the price which was always very good. there is a restaurant there which is busy every day (except wednesdays which is closed to the public.) Casa fantasia is perfectly situated within staggering distance to the bars and clubs and only moments to the beach. Unfortunately, there is no longer a pool at Casa Fantasia, which initially i found disappointing, but its so close to the beach that we probably wouldn't use it too much anyway. still, it should be removed from their website.
There is a fabulous bakery across the road that makes the best bread, pastries and cakes.
Would Definitely stay here again - Loved it!

Room Tip: ask for the room that has the private roof terrace, nice and quiet
