Great staff at building. But this unit is getting a little tired. And it needs a bottle water holder and a new coffee maker. It should better stocked with bath soap and shampoo and paper towels. On the positive side, the king beds are great, the towels and linens are fresh and clean, the furniture is very nice and comfortable, the view is fantastic and the beach location is great .

Gran personal en la construcción. Pero esta unidad se está cansando un poco. Y necesita una botella de agua y una cafetera nueva. Debe estar mejor provisto de jabón de baño, champú y toallas de papel. En el lado positivo, las camas king size son geniales, las toallas y la ropa de cama son frescas y limpias, el mobiliario es muy agradable y cómodo, la vista es fantástica y la ubicación en la playa es excelente.

For first time condo renters, we were a little apprehensive about doing it. Concerns about noise in the area and noise from other properties. We were amazed at how quite the area was. Our unit was absolutely lovely. Had everything we needed. The service was great,always greeted with a smile and a hello. All our questions were promptly answered. The pool and beach area were very good. Only thing I could think of suggesting was about the garbage on the beach in the roped off area. The bins were often overflowing and left for days before being emptied. Very smelly and not nice to look at. I did mention it once and it was soon gone. Overall, great time. will not go back to hotels again! Thank you.

Por primera vez que inquilinos de condominios, estábamos un poco preocupados por hacerlo. Preocupación por el ruido en la zona y el ruido de otras propiedades. Nos sorprendió lo bien que estaba la zona. Nuestra unidad era absolutamente encantadora. Tenía todo lo que necesitábamos. El servicio fue estupendo, siempre saludado con una sonrisa y un saludo. Todas nuestras preguntas fueron respondidas rápidamente. La piscina y la zona de la playa eran muy buenas. Lo único que se me ocurrió sugerir fue sobre la basura en la playa en el área acordonada. Los contenedores a menudo se desbordaban y se dejaban durante días antes de ser vaciados. Muy mal y no es agradable mirar. Lo mencioné una vez y pronto desapareció. En general, gran tiempo. No volveré a los hoteles otra vez! Gracias.

This is our 3rd visit this year to casa de risk. The unit is getting a little tired, when compared to new construction, like our favorite D Terrace, penthouse 5. The unit doesn’t have a water bottle holder, and pvrpv never provide one. Nor any real assurance that the water is safe to drink. There is never any bath soap or shampoo provided, nor paper towels provided in kitchen. The coffee pot could be upgraded to a larger capacity unit , and the maid could return to complete the dry cycle of the clothes, instead of leaving the damp clothes in dryer and washed clothes in washer. Other than those few minor gripes, the location and view is great and Fidel and Amanda are fantastic.

Esta es nuestra tercera visita este año a casa de risk. La unidad se está cansando un poco, en comparación con las nuevas construcciones, como nuestro favorito D Terrace, penthouse 5. La unidad no tiene un soporte para botellas de agua, y pvrpv nunca proporciona una. Ni ninguna garantía real de que el agua sea segura para beber. Nunca hay jabón de baño o champú, ni toallas de papel en la cocina. La cafetera podría actualizarse a una unidad de mayor capacidad, y la criada podría regresar para completar el ciclo de secado de la ropa, en lugar de dejar la ropa húmeda en la secadora y lavar la ropa en la lavadora. Aparte de esas pocas quejas menores, la ubicación y la vista son geniales y Fidel y Amanda son fantásticas.

The building\'s location is ideal -- close to the beach, easy walk to everything. But sometimes it\'s a little too noisy with the music from the beach (but not as bad as it was last year). Condo is nicely furnished! Would be nice if the patio screen door worked, and if there were cushions for the patio chairs (or a chaise lounge). Overall this is a nice building, but I\'m not sure I\'ll stay at Playa Bonita again, or even in the area. For me, it\'s just getting to noisy in general (granted, there is a lot of construction taking place nearby presently), but the constant motorcycles and horns honking also. The infrastructure nearby seems to also be getting worse -- broken sidewalks, potholes, etc. plus I\'ve never noticed PV so full of litter as I did this year. The businesses really need to do a better job with keeping the streets clean and the trash picked up.

Found the Casa de Risa to be a great location and a great choice for us. Walking distance to everything. The staff at the condo made for a great vacation. I think this is my 8 time I\'ve used PVRPV and everything has worked out perfectly each time. Looking forward to next year. Thank you Jerry

This was another wonderful stay. I would like to let you know that the dryer was on the fritz during our stay and wasn\'t fixed so the house cleaner wasn\'t doing towels/sheets on cleaning days which we\'d had done in the past when staying there. The main/daily front desk staff at Playa Bonita was AMAZING as they were last year extremely helpful. However, there is an older couple (I believe they were a couple - old man/old woman) whom I have no idea what their role is at Playa Bonita but they are rude miserable people and the HOA management and owners should really be made aware of it. They roam around the lobby like they own the entire building, scoff at guests, scrutinize guests of guests, only speak to you when they want to see your Playa Bonita wristband/ID card and then once they see it pretend you\'re invisible. Years ago we stayed with you and at Playa Bonita and the old man was there acting the same way... I\'d thought he\'d been shipped off to a nursing home by now since I didn\'t see him last November, but unfortunately he was there this year and had the old woman to help him be miserable to guests. If they want to take on a hospitality role at the building they should make whom they are known to guests, be nice to guests, smile once and awhile, and not carry on as if they own the property and that paying guests aree offending them by walking in the door. Other than that it was wonderful as always and your staff along with the front desk were 5-star. Thank You.

TV in the bedroom never worked. Reported immediately to PVRPV who sent a message to the front desk. They picked up the unit two days later but never fixed it. A/C in the master bedroom only worked on coldest setting (16 Celsius) and finally quit working altogether on the last night we were there. Tried the unit in the second bedroom and it blew out warm air so we were thankful that bedroom wasn\'t being used. I wouldn\'t recommend this unit. We have stayed in many Playa Bonita units over the past 8 years and this was one of the worst (condition wise).

BIENVENIDOS
Playa Bonita Condominio Policies
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

PLEASE NOTE: Playa Bonita is accepting of all people.
And Playa Bonita expects all people to be accepting of our policies.

WELCOME
Welcome to Playa Bonita Condominio we hope you enjoy your stay. Please remember Playa Bonita is not a hotel it is a private condo and therefore procedures, service, and amenities are somewhat different. The difference is why the owners and their guests enjoy this building and its location. Hopefully you will understand and come to appreciate Playa Bonita for its uniqueness and convenience. Playa Bonita feels we are welcoming you into our home. At Playa Bonita, we provide 24/7 security and require Playa Bonita identification to enter the building because security and serenity for owners and their guests are important. Remember, registered guests staying at Playa Bonita are not allowed to have their visitors use the beach palapas and chairs, the lobby restrooms, the swimming pool, and poolside cabana.

CHECK IN & CHECK OUT
Check in time is 3:00 PM. Check out time is 12:000 Noon. If your condo is not ready when you arrive or if you have a late departure, you may leave your bags in the lobby. Just ask at the front desk. While you wait we suggest you might take a walk, shop, or have lunch or breakfast until your condo is ready or it is time to leave for the airport. The lobby restrooms are available for your use.

REGISTRATION
Upon arrival, each person staying in the unit must register at the Administration Desk to officially become a guest of Playa Bonita. Only those people on the registration name list provided to Playa Bonita will be allowed to register. Each person registered will be provided with a security arm band/ankle band or a photo Playa Bonita Identification card. If you choose the band, it will be attached at time of check in and worn until you check out. It must be worn when using the common areas and when entering and exiting the building. If you choose the photo identification card, completed at the time of check in, the photo ID must be in your possession at all times to show when using the common areas and when entering and exiting the building. Common areas include hallways, lobby, swimming pool and cabana, beach palapas, and lobby restrooms. The replacement cost of a wrist band or a photo identification card is fifty Pesos. At the end of your stay please return your photo identification cards and bands to the front desk. For security reasons, we ask that you leave the condo keys at the front desk each time you leave the building and pick them up each time you return.

PROBLEMS WITH YOUR CONDO
Each individual condo is the condo owner’s responsibility. If you have problems with plumbing, backed up toilets, appliances, supplies, etc, contact your accommodations’ arranger, its property manager, or owner. The building administration and front desk staff cannot help you with problems in the condo.

VISITOR ACCESS
Guests may not have visitors in the common areas only in the condo. If you bring visitors to the condo, they must sign in and out at the Administration Desk. If the visitor is not with you, they must be announced by phone and then sign in and out at the Administration Desk. It is always a good idea to go to the lobby and meet your visitors so they know where to go and even a better idea to escort your visitors to the lobby door when they depart.

When returning from the beach or returning to use the lobby restrooms, shower off sand in the shower outside the main lobby entrance. Ask the Reception Desk to turn on the outside water if necessary. Please dry thoroughly before entering the lobby area and elevator. The chairs and tables are removed daily at 5:00 PM. Should you wish to stay longer on the beach, inform the beach attendant and then it is your responsibility to return the chairs and tables to the building.


MAID SERVICE
Maid services are provided two times a week. Check with the front desk as to exact time and day for your unit. It is preferred that you are not in the unit during maid services. It usually takes 2 to 3 hours which includes bathroom cleaning, trash emptied, furniture dusted, table tops cleaned, floors swept and mopped, and the kitchen area cleaned including stovetops. Maids are not responsible to wash dirty dishes or clean up cooking remains. The laundry room is for the convenience of guests and the maid staff is not required to perform laundry services. The staff can make up beds on the days they are scheduled. They may put new bed linens on the beds if clean bedding is put out. The staff is not responsible for washing or drying bed linens and towels. Anything additional can usually be accommodated if you ask and leave an additional tip. Recommended tipping for Maid Staff is 50 to 60 pesos each time the maid cleans. Perhaps an additional tip if there are numerous guests. Leave the appropriate amount on the dining table or kitchen counter each time she cleans and again the day of departure.

TELEPHONE
There are two phone systems. The HOUSE PHONE which connects you to the front desk - enter zero and to call other units in the building - enter the unit number. And the LAND LINE which is for local calls. Not all units have a land line. The condo building front desk phone number: 222-3270 local calls and 011-52-32-222-3270 from the US.

DRINKING WATER FOR PLAYA BONITA
Puerto Vallarta’s water purification system has been certified safe by International standards since 1992. Condominos Playa Bonita has its water tested monthly and each time it has be rated potable. When in doubt purchase bottled water. The little store just down the street to the south carries groceries and does Amapas Mercado behind Playa Bonita.

EMERGENCIES
Contact the front desk.

TIPPING
Tipping for the reception and maid staff is an expected custom throughout Mexico and our staff depends upon this additional income. Recommended tipping for reception staff should be dependent upon any special services they have provided during your visit – tour services arranged, taxi, telephone calls made on your behalf, reservations, baggage, directions, grocery delivery, etc. Tips should be given directly to the person who assisted you. If they are not here when you leave, it is customary to place the tip in an envelope with their name and leave it at the front desk.

NEIGHBORHOOD NOISE
Remember Playa Bonita is located on the beach and in an urban area, so street noise from construction, deliveries, traffic, sirens, alarms, surf, dogs, and music from restaurants and beach performers is inevitable. However, if you are disturbed by unusually loud music or noise from adjacent businesses, and condo buildings, or from another Playa Bonita condo please notify the front desk so an official complaint can be made.
REMINDERS

1. No animals are permitted in the building including the lobby.
2. Loud talking on the balcony is not allowed at anytime. There should be no talking what so ever after 10:00 at night and before 9:00 in the morning. Even the most private of conversations can be heard in adjacent units. If you look to the left or right and up or down from the balcony, you will notice you are only two feet away from a bedroom window. Some people retire early while others sleep late. Please be considerate of all our owners and guests.
3. Removal or borrowing of any common area property (pool chairs) is not allowed.
4. Deposit trash and garbage outside in building garbage cans adjacent to the main lobby entrance.
5. No towels or clothes are permitted on the balconies or hallways.
6. Think carefully when using the balconies and the roof top pools and sun decks as well as the closing of curtains and doors. Public nudity in Mexico is illegal even in your own home if seen by others. Don’t spend your vacation in jail.
7. Close the door to your condo – quietly. Keep talking to a minimum when using hallways and entering your condo.

smoking policies. Please follow them.
11. As per our Condominio Bylaws failure to comply with the
Administration of the building and its policies will result in your eviction
from the condo.
12. Remember the staff does not make the policies. They are only doing
their job when they remind you of the policies. Please be kind. Yelling
and insulting the staff doesn’t solve anything.


ONE LAST REMINDER
Enjoy your stay at Playa Bonita. And thank you for following our policies. Your comments and concerns are always appreciated. You may leave them at the front desk.


ADDITIONAL FEE FOR CLIENTS ARRIVING BEFORE AND AFTER REGULAR WORKING HOURS

Please be advised that if you are driving or flying to Puerto Vallarta, you must ensure that you plan your travels well and expect to arrive at the rented property no later than 8 PM. on any given day. Clients who arrive after 8 p.m., will incur an additional charge of $25.00 USD I.V.A Included which must be paid in cash. This will be collected upon check in. In addition, there is no check in time before 8 a.m. on any given day, otherwise, the same additional fee of $25.00 USD cash applies. Most of the properties allow a check in time of 3 p.m.


Inside security cameras

When cameras move inside, things get a little more complicated. Again, cameras are only allowed in areas where one does not have a reasonable expectation of privacy. Thus, store security cameras used to prevent shoplifting are generally okay. But, what happens when the camera is situated someplace where one expects privacy but that is also an ideal location for one to conceal store merchandise?

Similarly, other areas like rented rooms, hotel rooms, and locker rooms are generally off limits for security cameras. Again, the expectation in these places are for complete privacy, and one should feel comfortable undressing in these locations without having to worry about someone watching or broadcasting the footage.
