We arrived at the Villas Lomo Linda on January 27,2006. We stayed 1 night in a 1 bdrm unit then upgraded ($120.00usd/week)to a 2 bdrm the next day(4 ple)for another week. The 1 bdrm unit would've been fine but cramped. The 2 bdrm unit was fantastic! Very large, spacious, huge balcony with a private 4 person hot tub, bbq and patio set. The unit was exceptionally clean and quiet. Yes, there were a few tiny ants but after a few hours there , they were gone. There was no air conditioning(didn't need it because of the breeze all the time),no phones(who would you call anyway?)and no TV(it tells you that on their webpage). They have a common room to watch tv and a small library of pocket books to read and exchange. The pool is a good size but just a wee bit chilly. Bring your own towels to take to the beach. Full sun all day to tan but very uncomfortable lounge chairs. The personnel there are fantastic! Well informed of the how to's and what fors of PV and quite willing to help. Everybody spoke very good english--so no language barrier. Kudos to Silvia,Luc & Juan.
The only downfall to this location is if you want to go to the beach you first have to walk down to the main road which is steep, and then go down not 1 but 157 steps to hit the beach. Trust me...your calves will be screaming suicide by the 100th step. Needless to say that you will want to jump into a cab (20 pesos)to get back up to your apartment.
To go grocery shopping at the Mega or Gigante you will have to jump a bus down at the main road then switch to another bus to go north to shop. I would suggest do that and when done shopping just jump a cab back(40-60 pesos). '
All in all, we loved this place and as a bonus...the beds and pillows were just like at home here. Would we stay here again you ask! You can bet your butt we would!
