very nice little place, lush garden and palm trees, when we where there march 30 real quite, nice pool, breakfast was ok, location to some fine dinning always a factor. We will come again.( area was mostly nice upper homes and easy taxis ))
This place is an absolute Gem! The open layout concept of Palacio 199 creates a relaxed and inviting atmosphere, the communal dinning and pool area is spacious and very clean. I loved the fresh breakfast each morning and the bed was SO COMFORTABLE! The hosts were very friendly and full of information about the surrounding area. The location is perfect as it is within walking distance to the beach, restaurants, night clubs and even a few local neighborhoods and shops. I will most definitely be staying here again!
Palacio 199 was close to everything. Terrific breakfast with lots of fresh ingredients. Loved my room and the hosts Siggy and Max were very friendly. I highly recommend this for a getaway, whether alone or with your lover.....it's just right.
Beautiful bed and breakfast, spotless, accommodating with gracious hosts. Made us aware of what was available in the area, which were good values, which offered an experience (such as Elizabeth Taylor's home - now Casa Kimberly), available when needed - wonderful time at a fabulous place!
Comfy bed and quiet room in a beautiful home. The breakfast was delicious and extensive. Friendly owner. I will return again. Easy to take the cable car up and down the hill and then you are just 2 blocks from the beach, restaurants, bars and shopping. Tell your taxi driver that it across from Pinnacle,Condo Buildings, that worked every time.
This is a perfect place to stay if you would like a real experience of Mexico, and want to distance yourself from the tourist vibe. We were very happy with our experience here. The owners Rose & Robbie were very friendly, and we had some wonderful conversations. They reached out to me, by email, the week before the trip, and helped me with questions I had about the area. Our gracious hosts provided a continental breakfast on the first day and made pancakes on day two. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. There are excellent restaurants nearby, and the house is walking distance from a bus line. The house is beautiful and the room was comfortable and secure.
Thanks Robbie & Rosita for the hospitality. Clean and cozy b & b in a friendly family neighbourhood. Comfortable, well appointed, clean rooms. Host & hostess are helpful & informative. Highly recommend & will definitely return.
Our stay at Casa De Las Palapas surpassed any and all of our expectations. Can't beat the views or the location. The pool is perfect for a friendly volleyball game. But I can't say enough about the staff at the villa. The service and especially the food were excellent. No need to leave the property. You definitely get your moneys worth. Loved it so very much. Already planning a return trip.
We rented Casa de Las Palapas to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday with friends. With five bedrooms, four floors and numerous bathrooms there was room to spread out for quiet/private time but also wonderful communal areas to hang out in together. The staff was friendly, helpful and accommodating. Manuel helpfully arranged activities and drove us where we needed to go. He even helped to arrange a visit to the doctor for one of our party with an ear infection. The meals were fantastic and Marisela was happy to accommodate our requests even if not on the published menu. She was also wonderful about ordering a cake for delivery for my husband's birthday. The house was kept clean and neat thanks to Luz Maria. It was not an issue for our group but I would caution potential guests that there are 96 stairs from the pool to the upper floor where the kitchen and eating area are. I would not recommend this home for elderly or handicapped individuals or for people with very young children. Overall, we had an amazing time at Casa de Las Palapas and would absolutely return again.
When I decided to stay here I never expected the 5 Star accommodations that awaited me. If you're the type of person who needs a Concierge to tell you where to eat or what to do this isn't the place for you. If you want a gracious host who is unobtrusive and who will kindly offer up helpful suggestions... if you stop him and ask... then this is the place. Virgil is simply put, a Master Host, who speaks perfect English and Spanish and made my stay one that I will remember for a long time. He and his team prepare a breakfast that is superb. The rooms are kept clean and orderly and rival any hotel I have ever stayed in. Everyone working for Virgil was friendly, cheerful and the very best at what they do, whether it was the Gardener/Handy Man, or the maids/Kitchen Assistants. The Casa is set in the middle of a lush tropical garden, kept that way by the Gardener and there is a pool to lounge in and even a hot tub like whirlpool. I love the architecture and the 1st class materials that went into the construction of the Casa. Restaurants and an Oxxo Store are within walking distance as is the beautiful Beach. All about 10 minutes away. If you have a rental car there are unlimited places to visit for recreation or dining up and down the coast-line. Walmart is not too far for shopping and if you're lucky you can catch a ride with Virgil when he does his weekly shopping there. Taxis, while a little on the expensive side, could still be used for going to Walmart or for further excursions to Puerto Vallarta. I personally didn't need to go over to that side of Banderas Bay...I've been there many times before. This was my first trip to Nuevo Vallarta and Casa Virgilios, but it won't be my last. God Bless All of You at Casa Virgilios. I miss you already.
This was our second stay at Casa Virgilios and we were not disappointed. The warmth of Virgilio makes us feel like home. Clean, quiet, comfortable and secure, Casa Virgilios is a good starting point to access the Nuevo Vallarta beach (10minutes walk), a bus station (5 minutes walk) that will take you, for a very small fee, to downtown Puerto Vallarta or villages to the north. Virgilio will surprised you, with his ingeniousity, making a great breakfast from 9:00 to 11:00am. At breakfast you will meet other guess and share experiences, we always make friends during our stay. If you feel like staying on site, enjoy the clean pool and spa, the vegetation and birds, the manicured garden is magical. A special note, filtered water, bacteria free is available. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
A beautiful home shared with travellers to P.V. . Virgilios is a humorous man , has been there and done that..seems to belong , just like a piece of the furniture. He cooks a mean breakfast every morning and you will be anticipating the next days offering. Friendly customers enjoy chatting and cocktails around the pool. Beautiful yards, cool pool, equals an awesome place to stay. Awesome place to stay.
One of our favorite places when in the PV area. Away from all the noise, vendors and tourism. We have already booked for our third and fourth visit with Virgilio, who is a fantastic cook. We love our little home away from home. A hidden treasure, we would prefer to keep for ourselves.
my husband and I were reconnecting after his extended absence in Canada for surgery. We wanted the perfect place ... a warm gentle peaceful place. We were not sure if Nuevo Vartalla would be the right location but as we both love the beach we thought we would try and find a solution ....... and find it we did!! Casa Virgilios was the perfect setting .. beautiful manicured gardens, warm clean pool, and an attentive but not overbearing host. The breakfasts were huge and delicious and kept us going until dinner time. The location could not have been better ..... a 7 minute walk to the beach, a five minute walk to a group of very fine restaurants at affordable prices, grocery stores close by ... in fact we cant think of one thing to complain about!!! We happened to be visiting this lovely B and B while our hosts daughter and 3 delightful young children were there for a vacation to see their grandfather they were a joy for us as well as for him. We have spent many months in puerto vallarta and nuevo vallarta and always stayed at hotels BUT never again....Casa Virgilios will be our new Vallarta home. see you next year!! daphne and Lynn Nordean
All accommodations looks great on pictures but this place is even more beautiful and fresh than pictures can tell. It's a place with personality, heart and soul and I give it my best recomandatins for those of you that prefer these qualities over the huge "doesn't matter where we are we never leave the area, we paid for it" all inclusives. The owner speaks perfect english and he will help you to get to know the area. I really enjoyed my staying! /annalena
We loved staying at Casa Virgilios--felt like a home. Owner very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed all of the different birds, the pond, nice swimming pool and lovely art throughout the villa. Great location right on the canal, close to lots of restaurants. Felt very safe--easy to walk everywhere.
Stayed here 3 days in February 2012 and couldn't be more pleased. Like staying with your favorite in-laws in their country hillside home because it is actually the hosts, Ted and Brischa's, personally designed hideaway in the jungle above Old Town Vallarta. Their graciousness, helpfulness and friendliness as hosts is superb and the poolside terrace breakfasts overlooking Vallarta and the Pacific Ocean in the distance were fantastic. Give yourself a special treat and check this place out -- very convenient to downtown Vallarta, but you are in a true Mexican neighborhood set back in the jungle. I will return again and again and I live only 5 hours away on Lake Chapala. My "go to" place in PV.
This is the second time we have stayed at Casa Virgilios. The moment you step through the door you enter a world of peace and go back to Eden. Soaking up the sun in the backyard, taking a walk to the beach, napping in the afternoon and enjoying a fantastic breakfast in the fresh morning air restore the soul.
Fate di un agriturismo o di un B&B a Puerto Vallarta, Messico, la vostra casa lontano da casa
Puerto Vallarta è una destinazione turistica famosa sulla Costa messicana del Pacifico, situata in una baia panoramica. Nei dintorni degli agriturismi e dei B&B di Puerto Vallarta ci sono splendide spiagge, ottimi ristoranti, centri importanti per lo shopping, come pure meraviglie naturali come le foreste tropicali e le cascate, con la certezza che qui non mancano cose da vedere e da fare.
Cosa fare a Puerto Vallarta, Messico
Gli agriturismi ed i B&B a Puerto Vallarta si trovano nella Banderas Bay, che si distingue per la sua bellezza naturale, dominata da aspre colline ricoperte di vegetazione lussureggiante. È possibile scegliere tra il nord, con le sue ampie distese di sabbia dorata spiaggia, o il sud, un po’ più roccioso dove le scogliere cedono il passo a piccole calette immacolate.
Tra le quasi innumerevoli attività a disposizione attorno agli agriturismi ed ai B&B di Puerto Vallarta c’è l’osservazione delle balene, possibile tra Dicembre e Marzo di ogni anno. Si arrivano a vedere le balene megattere, così come le focene e i delfini. Un’altra attività acquatica popolare è l’immersione- la baia è considerata tra i migliori luoghi d'immersione in Messico. Contemporaneamente le grotte lungo la costa frastagliata hanno rivelato alcuni punti eccellenti per lo snorkeling – in queste acque si arriva a vedere una fauna fantastica.
Il paesaggio montano, a breve distanza dagli agriturismi e dai B&B di Puerto Vallarta, è ideale per escursioni e passeggiate a cavallo. A Yelapa c'è un percorso relativamente breve che conduce ad una cascata alta 10 metri. Per qualcosa di un po’ più raffinato è possibile sfruttare al meglio i cinque corsi che si trovano nelle vicinanze. Ognuno di loro offre una sfida leggermente diversa, da quella relativamente semplice di Los Flamingos, a quella più complicata di El Tigre La Marina Vallarta.
