Bugambilia Blanca Vacation House and Condos
Reviewed December 28, 2010

We spent a week in the third level ocean view condominium. Everything, including the hospitality of the owner, cleanliness of the unit, water temperature and pressure, location and view--far exceeded our expectations. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and would highly recommend Bugambilia Blanca.

i've been to PV approximately 8 or 9 times. On the second time through, we found this place on a website. It looked just like something we were looking for. We booked it. Then we emailed the owner he asked that we send 1/2 of the deposit in the form of a check and the other half in cash when we got there. No cards. We were a little weary, but he seemed trustworthy (British guy named Clive) and the rate was very affordable for the accommadations. We booked it.

We arrived, met Clive, and couldn't have been happier. The common room was spacious, well tiled, and filled with all the things you should need: a 1/2 bath, a kitchen, a flat screen TV (not HD but nice nonetheless, especially for PV accommodations), a CD player, etc. The patio was lovely. It connected the 2 bedrooms. Each bedroom had it's own bathroom. We spent many afternoons on the patio watching Banderas Bay and sipping down Pacifico beers.

The unit we stayed in had a master bedroom (larger king size bed and wall unit A/C). i gave my friend that because he's a big drama queen and well...you know...). My unit didn't have a wall A/C but it had a ceiling fan and it was November, so no need really. i slept fine...especially if i had met an extra special guest star at the beach that day! i think Clive has upgraded the other units, now, to all have A/C.

i can't believe that guy complained about the walk to the beach. It is literally a 6 minute walk to the beach. Yes, it is all downhill. But if it wasn't, how would you get that view of the bay! DUH! Get your exercise in. It will help to erase a couple of margaritas and enchiladas that day!

i'd highly recommend Clive's place. It's well priced for the level of accommodations. And he's right: the shower pressure is magnificent.

Hey Clive! If you're reading this, it's Kevin of Kevin/Nazareth infamy! Hope to see you again in the coming year!

A review of a stay in our two bedroom ocean view condo on level three of Bugambilia Blanca. Guests particularly enjoy the breezeway terraces that look out to the ocean and both bedrooms now have mini split type air conditioners.

Our group of 6 rented 2 condos at Bugumbilia Blanca over Christmas. We had a great experience and would will definitely stay there again. The location was great and an easy walk to the beach or the restaurant and bars of Olas Atlas. Yet the condo was set far enough on the hill that it was peaceful at night, no people noise or street noise.

The condos were spacious, clean and the drinking water was always refilled. It was great to have free WiFi. Every morning over coffee the conversation always turned to how well we slept, the beds were firm and comfortable. I can not stress this enough, the beds were awesome, we have never slept so well.

Clive was incredibly accommodating and helped us find transport to the airport and let us store our luggage in his place while we waited for our flight. Overall we had a great experience and would definitely stay there again.

Bugambilia Blanca is a great place to stay but the walk into town can be a challenge if you do not like steps or steep roads. Was not a problem with me or my friends but if you have health problems maybe not. The rooms are huge and very clean. The beds are hard and need to be replaced with something a little softer. The owner/manager Clive is a great guy and very helpful. I loved the feel of the place. I would stay at this condo again. Oh and the three bathrooms with nice showers were a plus for the four of us. Remember to bring soap and shampoo as they are not provided but everything else is. Try this place...

My husband and I had a great time staying here with another couple. It was perfect for two couples - seperate bedrooms both with full bathroom with shower and nice firm mattresses. Loved the location backing on to the little creek. It was a short walk down into town and to the beach. Great value for money. One of my favorite things was that the owner is living downstairs and went out of his way to assist us whenever we needed something. Friendly and helpful without getting in the way! He was attentive to details like changing out lightbulbs, resupplying large bottles of drinking water and offering to assist us in arranging taxis and recommending restaurants. The maid service also was top notch and unobtrusive. I'd definitely come back here.

My husband and I, and friends stayed here for a week while in Puerto Vallarta. We really enjoyed looking out from the veranda, seeing the city below, and the birds flying in the trees. The beds were comfortable, the restrooms were adjacent to each bedroom. The rooms are quite sound-proof, so if traveling with others, you don't have to be concerned with keeping one another awake. I would definitely go back in the future.

I have stayed at Bugambillia Blanca every March for the past 3 years in the penthouse and it has become a home away from home. i plan a return visit this year. It is private and spacious with all the amenities and without overdoing the decor. The set up is simple and easy to maintain and I understand that recent upgrades have been in the works. The owner is exceptionally helpful and available for any assitance needed... the cleaning service is excellent. It is an easy walk to town , to the beach, and to the Malecon. The sunsets are simply amazing .. the view to the sea an endless source of pleasure. Sea breezes come through the canyon and the extending balcony is a great additional space which enhances the inside/ outside ease of the condo. Bugambillia Blanca offers the visitor a relaxed and comfortable dwelling and an opportunity to experience Puerta Vallarta without being besieged by tourists and distractions that detract from the inviting and interesting offerings of the Zona Romantic. and P.V. at large. I highly recommend this accommodation for more experienced travelers who desire the comforts of home and the provisions for the vacationer. p.s. Taxis are readily available if the hike up the hill is not in the plan.
