“Bugambilia Blanca”
Reviewed February 3, 2010

We rented a condo in Bugambilia Blanca, listed in Gay PV. I sometrimes think that this is an invitation to print money, advertising to gay clientele. The owner was genial and the description fairly accurate of the property. It was obvious however that no money had been reinvested in the upkeep of this property. The beds and furniture were very uncomfortable. Sheets were clean as were bath towels, thanks to the services of a very good maid..For 1000 plus USD weekly, we felt that a little more was expected The condo was a substantial walk from the beach..all up hill There were no beach towels ..a little thing, but important. It was clear that little attention had been paid t o details. Kitchen cupboards and the decades old dishes and utensils .were out of reach to this 5'8 individual.The drains in the middle bedroom were vile smelling If the owner expects this traveller back,some definite improvements will have to be made.

Helpful?
Thank JayCanuck

Thank you so much for getting us started on Tripadviser! And - wow- that's so not the usual experience of people renting at Bugambilia Blanca - most people have a wonderful time staying here. So let's get started shall we:

License to print money - a two bedroom, three bathroom 1,350 sq ft tropical view condo with a glimpse of the ocean for $145 US Dollars a night for up to four people in the height of the season, and conveniently located in the delightful Zona Romantica, is considered by our repeat visitors to be quite the bargain. That's around $35 US Dollars per person, including maid service, cable television, free Wifi and pumped water pressure for great showers.

We work on a five year cycle keeping the units updated so decades old, that's not us. Yes, purely the design of the saucepans was a little dated, so we just went out and bought super new ones. Stinky bathroom - with onsite property management there's no need to suffer in silence - why did you wait until until check out to tell us? A quick maintenance fix and that's now sorted.

The furniture is the same in all the units and this is the first complaint we have had in 12 years about it. Your fellow countrymen, currently here for 11 nights, are having a marvelous time - look out for their review in about a week or so. Plus others from Oregon in the Tropical Condo are very comfortable and quite content, and they were all sat on the sofas and chairs during the time I spent with them last night. They also Trip advise so will be writing a review. Our arrivals today from Minnesota absolutely love their condo and said, actually, the pictures on the web do not do Bugambilia Blanca justice. Look out for their review as well.

Brand new pure cotton sheets and bedding on our orthopedic hotel quality mattresses, the recommended standard for rental accommodations - I have the same in my condo at the property - most people tell us they sleep well on them.

Elvia Estrada - our wonderful housekeeper who has been with us for 12 years thanks you for your compliments - we all work hard for our visitors to enjoy their stay - but she is mystified how you cannot reach the lower cupboards when she is just about 5" herself.

We are not in Kansas - a funny comment from the Oregon visitors - and as you are quite familiar with Vallarta you know it's not flat here, but if a six minute walk to nearby Los Muertos Beach is substantial then a taxi can be had for under $3 US Dollars.

One last thing - don't take our word for it - watch this space for more reviews from recent visitors. Well, as they say, you can't please everyone, and I don't agree with your review - but really, thanks again so much for getting us started with Tripadviser!

Clive Michael Marks, Owner - Bugambilia Blanca Condos in sunny Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Y'all have a nice day.
