Guest Reviews

4/5.0


The unit was very spacious. We enjoyed it overall and your staff was very nice. Our only disappointments were that the roof pool was too cold to use and the floors were probably not mopped before our arrival (maybe we arrived too early? no one told us but the floors were very gritty). The unit is getting older but is a wonderful location with big rooms and nice art. It is probably time for new pots and pans and some serving dishes.
Thank you for your assistance with the rental.

La unidad era muy espaciosa. Lo disfrutamos en general y su personal fue muy agradable. Nuestra única decepción fue que la piscina de la azotea estaba demasiado fría para usarla y que los pisos probablemente no se fregaron antes de nuestra llegada (tal vez llegamos demasiado temprano; nadie nos dijo, pero los pisos estaban muy ásperos). La unidad está envejeciendo pero es un lugar maravilloso con habitaciones grandes y arte agradable. Probablemente es hora de nuevas ollas y sartenes y algunos platos para servir. Gracias por su ayuda con el alquiler.

5/5.0


PVRPV as usual is always a pleasure to deal with and I have booked this condo and many others through them. We had another great stay at Playa Bonita and at Casa Dorothy. The desk and staff at this property are helpful and friendly. The only minor complaint about this property is that the rear bed room has two twin beds and they are pretty hard to sleep on and are about due for replacement. It would also be nice if there was a way to easily convert them from two twins to a king like hotels do. There was a dog in another property behind Playa Bonita that barked at times non stop. It would be nice if something could be done about this as it destroys the lovely peace and tranquility of this unit. Overall Casa Dorothy is nice and I would stay here again.

PVRPV como siempre es un placer tratar con él y reservé este condominio y muchos otros a través de ellos. Tuvimos otra gran estadía en Playa Bonita y en Casa Dorothy. La recepción y el personal de este establecimiento son serviciales y amables. La única queja menor sobre esta propiedad es que la habitación con cama trasera tiene dos camas individuales y son bastante difíciles de dormir y están a punto de ser reemplazadas. También sería bueno si hubiera una manera de convertirlos fácilmente de dos gemelos a un rey, como hacen los hoteles. Había un perro en otra propiedad detrás de Playa Bonita que ladraba a veces sin parar. Sería bueno si se pudiera hacer algo al respecto, ya que destruye la encantadora paz y tranquilidad de esta unidad. En general, Casa Dorothy es agradable y me alojaría aquí de nuevo.

For 2 nights of our 5 night stay, the toilet in hall bathroom was out of commission... occupant of the bedroom without an ensuite bathroom and occupants of the loft had to bother occupants of the 2 bedrooms with working ensuite bathrooms for those 2 nights.
Para 2 noches de nuestra estancia de 5 noches, el inodoro en el baño de la sala estaba fuera de servicio ... ocupante de la habitación sin baño y los ocupantes del desván tuvieron que molestar a los ocupantes de las 2 habitaciones con baños privados para esas 2 noches .

Nice property in a great building.
The location is terrific. The staff both in the building and at PVRPV are very responsive and helpful. The twin beds in the third bedroom were a bit uncomfortable when pushed together to make a king bed but tolerable. The pool was a little cold but refreshing on a hot day! All in all we had a wonderful stay and will be back again!

The place is outstanding with great amenities and incredible views. It is in the perfect location of Viejo Vallarta. I would stay here again.The stairs between floors was really narrow and should be called out. I still think it is a great place but unexpected

Everything was great as usual. The only issue was a pile of dirty towels and sheets in the laundry room. It wasn\'t a big deal for us we just went ahead and washed them but it might have been an issue for other guests. The four stars instead of five on the one question was because there were several burnt out light bulbs in the unit.

PVRPV Staff and Building Staff are wonderful and always willing to help. One issue my famile encountered in Unit 702 was the lack of hand towels, wash clothes and bath towels. Bath towels were later deleived but no washcloths and limited hand towles were available. That was a very small issue, so overall excellent. Thanks, Dale

I will definitely rent with PVRPV again. When my friends and I arrived at Casa Dorothy, the PVRPV representative greeted us, helped us get our bags upstairs, and told us about the unit. Omar also came by the next day to check on everything, and the front desk staff at Playa Bonita were very friendly. I called to change our checkout time while in PV, and the representative was on time for our departure, check out was a breeze, literally it took 2 minutes. I was very happy.
Muchas Gracias,
Frank

The maid was still here cleaning for almost an hour after we checked in. That prevented us from putting our things away and leaving the unit.

Most everything was as expected. When we arrived, the pool on the rooftop was a little dirty and there was no safe as advertised. When we brought this up to the concierge the issues were resolved very quickly. The staff was wonderful! we will definitely use PVRPV again.

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.

POOL CABANA AND SWIMMING POOL
Pool and cabana hours are from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM. The use of the pool cabana and swimming pool is strictly restricted to owners and registered guests. Please show proper registration identification each time you use this area. Registered guests may not have visitors in the pool cabana and swimming pool. Remember: Public nudity is against the law in Mexico. Chairs and lounges may not be reserved prior to 11:00 AM. Chairs and lounges are reserved by placing towels on needed chairs. When such chairs are reserved a guest must be present during those periods. You may not just leave your towels and disappear. The staff is instructed to remove any towels and personal items that are left unattended.

BEACH AND PALAPAS
The use of the beach chairs, tables, and palapas is strictly restricted to owners and registered guests. Please make yourself known to the beach attendant by introducing yourself and showing proper registration identification each time you use the beach palapas. Registered guests may not have visitors use the beach palapas and chairs. The beach attendant’s responsibility does not include theft patrol. Therefore use your good judgment and protect your valuables. The best advice - leave your valuables and passports in the condo. Remember: Public nudity is against the law in Mexico. Beach chairs and palapas may not be reserved prior to 11:00 AM. Chairs are reserved by placing towels on needed chairs. When such chairs are reserved a guest must be present during those periods.

Beach chairs and tables from beach restaurants are not allowed on Playa Bonita’s beach. Help keep our beach clean by disposing of your trash and cigarette butts in the container provided near the beach stairway. Use a towel while using the chairs. 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 twice each year and each time it has be rated potable. Check the Lobby Bulletin Board for the most recent test. However the filtration system does eliminate the bacteria. The bacteria level does change due to rain and environmental drainage. When in doubt purchase bottled water. For large bottled water, check with the front desk. 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.
8. Parties after 10:00 PM are not allowed. Building Administration must be notified of all parties consisting of more than 10 people. Maximum number of people for a party is 15 which includes registered guests and visitors.

10. Smoking is only allowed in one common area and that is the pool area.
Please use a plastic ash tray. No smoking in the lobby, elevator,
stairways, and rear hallways on each floor. Each condo has its own
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.


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.
