“Great value, Lovely hotel with lots of stairs for exercise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

I stayed here for two weeks and had a beautiful sunset view of the playa de Los Muertos beach. Each hotel has filtered water and free wifi. There are lots of stairs for exercise to get up to your room. My room was near the top and had 106 steps from the bottom. Great value and great location right up from the blue chairs beach (5 minute walk). Would definitely recommend it!

We stayed here for a week and had a lovely and relaxing time. We stayed on a top floor (Anita 18) but spent most of our time with friends around the private pool (Corona 6), which was glorious. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated, the bed very comfortable and the kitchen(s) fully equipped. The view is nice, but not magnificent since there is hotel construction immediately in front. Also, it is an urban landscape over water which is the same as I have at home, but it's still pretty. The location is convenient to lots of good, cheap food and the beach. The stairs (and hill up from town) are exhausting, but suck it up, it's good for you.

The only negative was the noise. First, from the road, which was significant even from the top floor. Down by the pool we had to raise our voices to converse. Also the balconies are practically in each other's laps so the people next to us who were up all night drinking and laughing kept us up with them too... I mean really, you can hear everything, even someone's dog's incessant squeaky toy. And even with ear plugs and a white noise machine.

I would advise people not to pay for the transportation to and from the hotel. Coming from the airport it is a collective service so you may have to wait for others (this is not stated on the website when you pay), and at $25 USD for a 20 minute ride, this is nuts. For that price you can get your own cab, even if you get ripped off it would still be faster and no more expensive. Also, on the way back all they do is flag a cab from the busy road. We had to remind them to do it on time, so really, we could have done this ourselves. If you've ever negotiated your own travel in a country other than your own, don't bother paying for this "service".

Overall, it was exactly what we needed to take a fun and affordable vacation with friends.

Room Tip: The private pool in Corona 6 made our vacation peaceful in a fairly crowded and chaotic vacation des...

My husband and I stayed here for four nights and loved it. We stayed in suite 21, which had a nice open patio with great views of Puerto Vallarta and the bay. It is on a hill and has lots of steps. This did not detract from the hotel for me, but might bother some people. I loved that the hotel was previously an apartment building. You have so much space and actually feel like you're staying in Mexico, instead of at some generic resort. Plus, the hotel is located near the more active part of the city, so there are lots of places to eat and go out. But the best part is definitely the views, definitely it feels like you're in paradise.

I stayed at Casa Anita for two nights in February. It was excellent. The view was spectacular, the rooms were immaculate and the reception staff were polite and accommodating. There are many stairs to climb if you are in the rooms with the views but they do have rooms at lower levels. I personally did not mind the stairs as I wore off the extra calories from all the good food and drink I had in PV. I will return and recommend Casa Anita to others.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the ocean

I can't say enough about Casa Anita in Old Town Puerto Vallarta. This place has the most amazing views, suites and the staff are Amazing!!!!! The location is Awesome. Very close to all the action in Old Town. I recommend trying unit# 21. The deck is about 20 ft. by 40 ft. It is really cool for entertaining and sunsets!!!!! Most of the staff are bilingual and super helpful. Quite an enjoyable experience!!!!!! Try it, you'll love it!!!! Lloyd McLean- Saskatoon, Canada.

Room Tip: Suite #21. The deck and the views are Awesome!!!!

I had a wonderful three night stay at this beautiful property. The staff was super, both professsional and friendly at the same time.
From my balcony, I had a great view of the ocean, and it was a close walk to anything you would need, such as shopping, restaurants, pharmacies, and convienience stores.
The cost of the hotel does not belie the cleanliness and amenities to be found at the property. I would guess that it would be hard to find a better place for the rates they charge in all of Vallarta.
The only drawback is the stair climbing, not a problem for me, but older or infirm people may need to get a room that is near the ground level.

If you are looking for a fully supplied apartment like experience Casa Anita in Puerto Vallarta is an excellent choice. From studios to 3 bedrooms (and I've stayed in them all), their accommodation is delightful. You will lack nothing .. good cooking facilities, dining areas, in-room safes (take your own lock), nicely tiled bathrooms (no problem with the hot water), comfortable living quarters, nice balcony with table and chairs.

Casa Anita is located just above Old Town (a 10 min. walk to the beach). In fact, all of Old Town sits just below your doorstep .. only minutes to everything (except groceries .. the closest major grocery store, Leys, is a good 25 min. walk and a reasonable taxi back).

There is some traffic noise from the road (but there is always some noise in Puerto .. traffic, mariachi bands, roosters, side walk banter, the surf ..) which reaches to the upper suites. That noise is easily mitigated by the stunning view from your own balcony of the Bay of Banderos, the city of Puerto Vallarta, and the sun sinking into the Pacific. Choose and end suite if you wish more privacy (the balconies on the inside units tend to be close together).

The suites are only reachable via stairways so, if stairs are an issue, this may not be the property for you. I'm 60, my health is good, and I don't find it to be a problem.

The staff are excellent. The suites are cleaned daily. Drinking water is delivered to your room and, if you require assistance with groceries/luggage/etc, the staff are completely happy to help.

This was my 5th stay at Casa Anita and it will not be my last.
