The ten weeks spent in Punta Esmeralda Huanacaxtle 201 were a joy. The accommodation was excellent for our family and friends to visit and enjoy. Our Property manager attended to all our requests,although few, as the condo is well cared for by the owner and propery manager. We loved the location as we were between two towns of Bucerias and La Cruz that provide all the amenities one could ever need. We truly love Mexico and this provided us with everything one would need for a wonderful winter hiatus!

We had a spectacular vacation in Puerto Vallarta recently. We stayed in a beautiful, new 4-bedroom condo in a great development north of the city. It featured 8 pools, one right below our unit, and was right on a protected cove on the bay. The kids loved to swim in the pools, each of which had its own unique style. They went to the cove and swam a couple times there.
The unit was luxurious with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, safe drinking water, white tile floors and excellent high-end furniture. Two of the bedrooms were set up with queen beds, one had two doubles and the other had a futon and it also served as the TV room. Three of the bedrooms, and the main open-plan living-dining-kitchen, had great views of the bay. There were four very high-end bathrooms so we never had to climb over the kids' junk to use a bathroom.
I cannot say enough positive things about the vacation.
