Bay View Grand
Reviewed January 23, 2011

Recently stayed for a week in a 2 bed 2 bath condo at Bay View Grand condo in puerto vallarta. The condo complex was gorgeous, with a hige, heated infinity pool, and a long quiet beach. We were also able to play tennis and used the great gym twice. There is a great poolside restaurant, and even a convenience store. It was just a short walk to some great restaurants in marina vallarta. It was also convenient to downtown - just a short bus ride from in front of the condo. We found the pool and grounds to be very well kept up, and would highly recommend this condo complex. We hope to be back soon

We took a last minute trip and rented this condo number C-607 at the Bay View Grand in Puerto Vallarta for 10 days. During this time, we had intermittent running water. The water would completely stop for hours on end. This condo was represented as a luxury condo, but we felt more like we were camping. The elevators also did not work half of the time. This condo was on the 6th floor and it was no fun walking up all those flights of stairs in the heat and humidity. The bed was rock hard. The bedding smelled so badly of mold that we had to wash it before we could sleep in it. The refrigerator leaked water all over the kitchen floor and we continually had to wipe it up. The owner, Matt Ouellette, lived in Puerto Vallarta and we emailed him with these problems thinking he would help. His response was, "all of these things you are emailing me about have to be fixed by the guards." In other words, he was unwilling to help us. I responded that the least he could do would be to adjust our bill for all the problems we had. He responded by saying, "I've already given you the unit for about 50 dollars less than I usually charge. All of those problems are exterior and I cannot go any lower." Well, he gave us this unit for $70 a day, in the rainy season, which would of been a good deal, if the unit we rented was the place he represented it to be. But believe me it was not. Half the time, we could not flush our toliets or take a shower. It was just awful!

Also, there was a small sign near the elevators that warned of crocodiles in the ocean right outside the Bay View Grand. This sign was so small that we did not even notice it until we were there about 7 days. We did not see any crocodiles there ourselves, but I did do some internet research and it is true that there are crocs in the water near the Bay View Grand. There is a crocodile sanctuary run by the Universidad de La Costa, just north of the Bay View Grand at Playa de Tomates. This is how they enter the ocean right outside the Bay View Grand.

The pool and the grounds of the Bay View Grand are, indeed, beautiful. The management of the Bay View Grand informed us that they were having water and elevator problems all month and it was temporary and should be fixed soon. The owner of our condo knew about these problems before we rented from him and he should have informed us of the problems up front before we decided to rent his condo. However, he failed to do so. He just wanted our money. This was just not right!!

If you stay at the Bay View Grand, just don't rent this particular unit, C-607, owner Matt Ouellette. Rent from another owner and swim in the ocean at your own risk.
