My cousin rents different units every year for the past 7 years, every January, February and March. They invited my husband and I this March and we were very excited to see their so called winter home. Every unit is decorated with different themes and decors. There were minor problems due to the owners not keeping up with the maintenance but overall very roomy, everything you need for the kitchen, pool and ocean views from the bedrooms and a jacuzzi on every balcony. The view of the ocean, and looking at the gardens from the 9th floor are breathtaking. The grounds are manicured every day. There are 6 pools, 2 for children, 2 heated, 2 not heated. Even the little snack bar had good food in case you didn't want to go back to your unit for lunch. The staff are constantly cleaning, wether it would be your windows and the sills, watering plants, lobbies, bathrooms, just immaculate.There are security guards everywhere. At the gates, around the pools, beaches, so you know you are safe. Speaking of beaches kind of disappointed. Thought the water would be a Caribbean turquoise but being the sand is dark the color of the water wasn't that colorful. Beaches have pebbles but my husband and I still walked the beaches but I guess on this side of the shore no one really goes to the beach since they have all the facilities they need at the pool. Nothing like going on vacation and having everything so clean. I would highly recommend the Bay View Grand to anybody. Buses are right outside your gate, and very reasonable to go downtown. Taxis are so clean. These guys are constantly washing them. What is so nice about the BVG is that you are walking distance to the Marina. Yachts, restaurants, massages/spas, market vendors with the local good, music. Puerta Vallarta is very safe, my husband and I walked in the old section of town one night after having a delicious meal and felt safe. This city is immaculate. I never even saw a cigarette butt or a candy wrapper on the ground. Buts NYC to shame between the cleanliness of the town and taxis. My husband and I would definetly like to return and who knows maybe we might rent a unit for a month next time instead of the 9 days of paradise that we had. So peaceful and relaxing and most of all beautiful sunsets every night.
