Our lovely two bedroom, ocean front unit is located directly on the most desirable beach in Nuevo Vallarta. Steps away from the sand, relax in the infinity pool, sip a margarita, and watch the gorgeous Mexican sun set over the Pacific Ocean.

This unit has a lovely view of the pool and ocean, with a large balcony. The condo is very spacious but furniture needs a good cleaning and the 2nd bedroom mattress should be replaced. Fitted sheets would be nice as well as good mattress covers. A full length mirror in the unit would be appreciated. A/C in 2nd bedroom didn't work but this was fixed after 2 complaints. The resort is clean and staff friendly and courteous. There was a wedding one evening that went on until 4AM with very loud music. Other than that, the resort was quite quiet. There were no basic cleaning supplies provided with the condo, not even a broom. The hosts were quick to respond to my many questions before the trip and info provided about restaurants etc, was appreciated. We enjoyed our stay and would stay there again if the issues mentioned were addressed.
This was my family's first time using airbnb and our first time traveling with a four year old and a six month old. Of course, we had a lot of questions and Matt and Melissa were really accessible and patient.
The resort that the condo is in is awesome! Really family friendly and a great location. This was also our first time staying in a resort area such as this and Bel Air was perfect for us. Beautiful grounds, small and manageable, really friendly service, and the food was pretty good too! The infinity pool is great, lots of shallow spots for kids and a swim-up bar for adults. And the beach is beautiful, clean, and full of activities.
The condo is pretty great, plenty of room and a great deck with an unbeatable view. And the location specifically of the condo in relation to the pool etc. was awesome. We could check on each other just by looking to and from the deck. The kitchen is really basic, you can cook simple meals but don't plan on getting too creative. If you plan on being there for more than 4 or 5 days I'd recommend seeing if you could arrange (and pay extra for) a round of cleaning service, fresh linens and towels. We were there for six days, and it got pretty grubby by the end.
We were there over New Years and the party/speakers we're practically in our master bedroom, but that's just the reality of being there over a holiday. The rest of the time it was quiet except for the sound of the ocean waves.
I'd definitely recommend working with Matt and Melissa and Bel Air. It was a great week away from home.
My family and I spent 3 days here and had a wonderful time. The apartment itself and resort as a whole were incredibly beautiful. We could not have asked for a better location- the beach and infinity pool could be reached practically as soon as we stepped downstairs from our apartment. My only advice would be to bring extra blankets and pillows especially if someone will be using the sofa bed in addition to confirming check-in with host during the high season as ours got pushed back.
Matt gave really good suggestions for things to do and where to eat; he was very communicative throughout our stay for the most part. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for relaxation and a beautiful spacious place.
Initially had some snags on check in didn't get the initial room that was booked. After contacting the host is was resolved, communication was great and timely.
The room has a fantastic view. Staff is great and I loved the pool. The property seemed to be lacking enough bathroom linens but we managed. As I had read, the beds are not the most comfortable but the view makes up for it.
Having stayed at several other resort properties on this area, and this is my third time here at Bel Air (formerly Playa del Sol) I am undecided if I am going to come back to this property. However you can't beat the view on this corner unit!
Hi Tammy...Thanks for the feedback...Sorry for the early confusion but thank you for bringing it to our attention and your patience while we worked it out.
We have plans to the improve the mattresses in the next coming months. Your feedback is very helpful. We hope you have a safe trip back home. Matt
Overall, we very much enjoyed our trip to Nuevo Vallarta! The property was lovely, staff was very friendly, and we found the pool, spa, and overall hotel accomodations very satisfactory. Matt and Melissa were also very easy to work with and made the booking process very smooth. The unit was huge which was nice if you're travelling with a group of people. The view was out of this world and made up for some of our frustrations. You can't beat eating breakfast while staring at the ocean! Our biggest frustration came from the noise level...the unit is positioned right next to the ocean and pool, which is fantastic, however it was incredibly loud. Everyday the pool would run activities (Bingo, Mexican lottery, etc.) and play very loud techo music. It's ok if you're not planning to be in your room but we were travelling with a 2 year old so we had naptime to deal with. Also, the weekend evening activities were insane. Friday night had loud pounding music past midnight and Saturday had a wedding on the beach that lasted past 2:30am. Very frustrating. The kitchen was stocked OK but we did have to buy some essentials which wasn't a huge deal. Linens were also just OK...limited towels and not the comfiest beds (the couch was great though!). Overall, we enjoyed our time but would probably look for a different unit based on noise level and unit ammenities.
Hi Ben...Thanks for your feedback...We have heard that noise is becoming issue...We are truly sorry your stay was not 100%....Especially for getting your little one to sleep....I can totally relate....We are discussing with the property management about limiting the activity on the pool deck and setting a cut off time at night.
Based your feedback we have decided to make upgrades to the unit to make it more comfortable...This includes linens, air conditioners, TVs, kitchen utensils, etc....
I hope that you had a quiet trip back home....Matt
Matt was very helpful throughout the whole process and our experience was very positive overall! The two joined private rooms located at a resort directly on the beach were exactly as described; it worked out very well for our group of six since there was also a foldout couch in the living room. Both rooms had beautiful ocean and pool views. Just be aware that the hotel likes to play loud music in the pool area starting as early as 8am and that they sometimes throw events (a wedding in our case) that continue until around midnight, give or take. Besides that, everything was great - we would definitely stay here again!

Hi. Thanks for visiting our airbnb post. We love travelling to new destinations like Brazil, Japan, China, Europe, and all over the United States trying new restaurants, swimming, skiing, playing golf, and exploring. One of our favorite places to visit is Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico. We hope you will stay at our place and enjoy it as much as we do.
If you want to share your vacation with a large family or with friends we have three, two bedroom units all in the same resort. We can certainly rent them all at once.
Work hard, Play hard. Enjoy! Matt & Melisa
