We visited Puerto Vallarta for two days on our way to Sayulita, looking for some quiet and relaxation, coming from our busy Manhattan lifestyles. We were so happy to find Dulce Vida. It was quiet and relaxing during the day, the space was a perfect size, it had a great layout and awesome style. We would return in a heartbeat...

I stayed at La Dulce Vida on new years. It was such a wonderful place, rooms were nice and clean, the service impeccable. I got sick a couple of days during my stay, and the owner came with food and checked in on me, I really felt safe and cared for. This is definitely the place I will stay on...

In Puerto Vallarta you can find a hidden paradise, it's behind the facade of touristic traps and will give you a feeling of something which is just there to be found by you. As you approach this beautifull casa you'll maybe think your just not at the right place but don't let that fool you, you are about to enjoy...

Dulce Vida is an excellent choice if you want to avoid the Puerto Vallarta ‘hotelzillas’. The area generally isn’t as quiet as La Zona Romantica - busses and trucks roar up a lot of PV’s main streets for reasons known only to the local planning authorities - though it is at the top of a quiet street. Nor is it...

Casa Dulce Vida was the perfect place to stay. Everything -- from the spacious and comfortable apartment, the step out to the pool (and the morning and evening swims), the views, and our affable hosts -- made for a great start to travels through to the interior of Mexico. Thank you very much for a relaxing and inspiring stay.
