About this listing
Our lovely two bedroom, ocean view 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.
Our unit is a part of the gated boutique resort, Bel Air Vallarta. Located on the best beach in Banderas Bay it is only fifteen minutes north by car from the nightlife and culture of downtown Puerto Vallarta and thirty minutes south from the surfing beaches of Sayulita. Bel Air is only a fifteen minute walk down the beach to the quaint town of Bucerias and its excellent restaurants and arts community.
There is plenty to do and see including: great restaurants, golf, water sports,surfing, shopping, sightseeing...or just relaxing by the beach and pool.

We like to rent a car while we are visiting. It allows us the flexibility to explore all that the area has to offer and come and go as we please. There is free parking for guests on the property.
The taxi service in the area very reliable. The front desk should be able to arrange a taxi for you. It usually takes five minutes for one to arrive. The property is 15 minutes from the airport and 20 minutes from downtown Puerto Vallarta.
There is a also a local bus stop just outside from the property. It will take from Nuevo Vallarta to Puerto Vallarta.

The condo was as we saw in the pictures. We liked the size of the rooms as they were perfect for a family of four. We were given the name of a contact person but, when we arrived there were no towels and we were not sure that the place had had a good cleaning. There were flies on top of the armoire, the bathtub in the master bedroom was not draining properly as well as the bathroom sink in one of the other bathrooms. We did reach out to our contact person, only to be told that she was on vacation. My sister-in-law, who was also staying in another condo at the same location, discovered that the contact person actually had a baby. While we congratulate her on the birth, it would have been nice to have a secondary contact person. As a suggestion, it would be great to have fitted sheets on the beds rather than flat sheets and also better pillows. My son would have liked to have used the pull-out bed, however it looked as if someone had just slept in the bedding and it was put away in a rumpled mess and maybe the couch could have had a little airing. Loved being able to cook for ourselves and shopping at the Mega (watch out for those persistent sellers of tours & timeshare accommodations). Access to taxis and the local bus was great; the grounds and pool was beautiful; loved the ocean views from all rooms; individuals such as Cesar (waiter), Trini & Roberto (taxi service/luggage) made our stay wonderful. We would definitely return for another Mexican visit! :)
Matt and Melisa were very quick to respond to every question we had, this made us feel very welcomed and assured. The people at the front desk were expecting us and greeted us with smiles. The air conditioning worked very well in the rooms, in fact they were very quick to cool down the entire place. There was plenty toilet paper when we arrived and it lasted us the whole week we were there. We had plenty of towels and the beach towels the hotel offered us were plush and comfy. Yes its true, the food at the hotel restaurant was not good- but you can't always have your cake and eat it too. Food choices are better in the center of Bucerias and in Puerto Vallarta. At the end of the day, nothing beats street tacos. Also the front desk will loan you DVD movies to watch for free!
Just got back from our vacation last night. The location was awesome. The resort Bel Air is such a family spot. We didn't have to sleep with loud music every night which we loved. The pool is nice. The jacuzzi they have is not what you normally get at a resort. We went and it was cold water. Apparently they are refilling them manually and so they aren't always ready to use.
When we arrived the sofa sleeper didn't have any sheets, we had no towels or toilet paper in the room. When we called customer service to get some they weren't very helpful since we rented the unit through the owner. It took an entire day to get the stuff we needed. The toilet paper is provided ONLY when you arrive, after that you must buy your own. That needs to be updated on the instructions. The bar staff was awesome! The kids playground and pool are great. The slide kept my 4 year old happy all week. Love that you can exchange money at the resort. The unit is large and has a great view. Overall we enjoyed the stay there. We didn't get wifi the entire week we were there, not even by the pool area. Only would work right in front of the check in desk but they do have a couple of computers you can use. The keys to the room stop working very often which is an inconvenience when you are caring sleeping babies up then down then up again. That happened 4 times during the week.
The airport is only about a 15 minute car ride. We would have dinner in Bucerias which is about 8 minutes away.
the room was exactly as they describe, except the internet wifi. The service was excelent in the hotel and the people of vallarta was kind. i have lost looking for the hotel and they help me by cell phone.
This is a great, spacious apartment for four in a well maintained resort. We enjoyed very much staying there swimming in the ocean as well as in the pool. We came back a second time.
nuestra estadía de una semana fue excelente, el departamento es muy cómodo y tiene vistas espectaculares. Las áreas comunes son magníficas y la playa muy limpia y tranquila.

About the Host, Matt & Melisa
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
