Fodor's Review

Hidden four blocks off the busy malecón, this '60s-era villa has apartments of various sizes filled with modern Mexican art and comfortable, if well-worn, furniture. All apartments have well-equipped kitchens, and in the last few years the management has brought in new mattresses and bedding and some other important room amenities. A few rooms have ocean-view terraces; the largest has three bedrooms, two baths, and a separate dining room. There's a red-tile pool and tropical

gardens. In high season the property accepts only weeklong bookings.

beautiful setting overlooking the ocean downtown

We attended a beautiful and fun wedding at a resort but after 2 days our choice was to experience Mexican charm and we were so pleased that we had chosen Casa Dulce Vida. It is charming offering privacy, original art and furnishings. The staff and owners are very knowable. You do feel like you are living here. Each casa has complete kitchens,there are many ocean views and also spa services in house. You can arrange for the time you wish to stay.

The casas vary in style and size and we felt priced accordingly.

Serenity in the City

If you want to avoid the touristy hotels and want to savor the local flavor of PV, this is the place. It is located in the heart of a residential neighborhood, but feels very secluded, comfortable and safe. Beautiful, traditional architecture with huge rooms that will make you feel right at home. Lots of tile and windows. Great patios and gardens. Fully equiped kitchens and wonderful staff. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
