“Pretty good location”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

We are WIVC members. All the properties are older. Most are a little away from the tourist zones. This is right on the beach. Pretty clean. Pretty well maintained. Close to restaurants and groceries. Pool is warm enough to use.

Staff helpful.

Location! Location! Location!

Room Tip: At the airport walk over the highway using the overpass. Take the yellow cabs. Half price.

Us: husband/wife, late 20's mid 30's.
We picked this place for the location and the full kitchen / apartment type feel.
We did a getaway voucher through Interval International. There are only 7 units in the building, all of them are ocean front with balconies. We had a spacious 2 bedroom. One bedroom had a king with en suite bathroom and the other had two twin beds and a second bathroom right off the entry. Both rooms have ocean views and were separated by the living area. There was an air conditioner in each room. The master unit worked well for us, but we only used it at night. The apartment had everything we needed. It's basic but complete. The value is in the beach front. The unit itself is basic, not fancy. Tidy, but not necessarily clean. I could have taken pictures of the random hairs and dirty grout, but for the value, I could endure for a week. The kitchen was well equipped, but had ants all day every day. One crumb would entice hundreds of ants. The location was good, sort of outside of town but walking distance to everything if you like to walk/in good health. A longer distance to the Romantica Zone, which we preferred over the touristy and closer Malecon. We walked A LOT! Oh and there isn't a elevator, so if you get room on the fourth floor, pack light! It is located on Playa Camerones which is more of a locals beach. Not a horrible amount of peddlers tying to sell you stuff. Cab fare to the Mariana where the tours leave from was $60 pesos and to get back to the airport it was $100 pesos ($190 from the airport to WIVC). There were plain blue beach towels in your room and 5 beach chairs up for grabs. Two TVs: one in the master and one in the living room. I think there were 5 English channels. We brought our Roku box to watch netflix but it did work! It said "content not allowed", crazy!
The staff was great. Everyone was super friendly and accommodating. Since this is not a hotel, there wasn't someone at the front desk 24/7, but there was always security and we always felt safe. Several times we grabbed Al Carbon tacos from the place across the way. The are the best! The open around 5pm, you will see them bring in the meat and stay open way late.

Room Tip: The "A" rooms are 2 bedrooms. The "B" rooms are 1 bedrooms. Go for the 2 bedroom...

Got this this little apartment through my timeshare trade and I totally nailed it.
The apartment though small, is perfectly adequate, clean and comfortable.The staff is very friendly, willing to answer any questions, get you a cab, directions or help you in any way. It's right on the beach facing due west into the sunset. The beach is clean, the pool is nice and the area fairly quiet. Wifi is free.

We are in the Centro Downtown district, 5 minutes walking distance from the Malecon and 15 minutes from Old Town. It's a 15 minute and 50 peso cab ride to the Marina or where the ATVS start for the mountain adventures. There's a grocery 5 minutes away and the prices are reasonable.

Except for the ever-persistent, pesky and rude timeshare pushers and souvenir shop sales people, the people of Puerto Vallarta are happy and gracious.

We really liked Casa de la Playa because of the size and location. Only seven condos, three one bedroom and four two bedrooms. They are small units but all have balcony with ocean views. They are well cared for and clean. There is a small pool and spa with lounge chairs,umbrellas and BBQ .No palapas but they do have beach chairs,tables,mats and umbrellas for the beach. The beach was very quiet while we were there. Several good restaurants and taco stands close by. The one person who made our stay even more enjoyable was Hector,at the front desk. Thanks Hector for your kindness and laughs.

We spent a week at the World International Vacation Club resort Casa la Playa in Puerto Vallarta in July. We had a great time - ate out all the time, spent time on the beach, on tours, and walking around town on the Malecon. I'm not sure that July is the right time to visit .... IT WAS HOTTTTTTT!!!! Although our apartments were lovely, they were on the third and fourth floors .... no elevators! Stairs were outside and HOTTTT!!

However, we survived and had fun to boot.
