Wow, truly an experience! This accomodation is more than a place to stay! It felt like a home and one I won't own in the near future, so being a guest was such a treat. The room I stayed in was Casa 4, but looked at all of them and they all feel the same. Each one is "wow"... It...

To sum up Dulce Vida...It's a quaint, beautifully designed and decorated, excellently located place to stay in Vallarta. We stayed in Casa #5, very clean, lots of room, secluded balcony, great pool and amazing views of Banderas Bay and its beautiful sunsets. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Recommended great restaurants, arranged golfing and tours for us that were all...

Casa Dulce Vida living for a single or a group offers privacy, central location to all of Puerto Vallarta's best restaurants and shopping, many gardens and attentive staff at a reasonable rate. I went as a single then a group to celebrate birthdays. Loved it!

Thanks to Trip Advisor, I found this beautiful house to share with my wife and brother/sister in-law. Casa Dulce Vida is a great place to stay if you are looking for some Mexican ambiance in a tourist destination. It is in an attractive Mexican residential neighborhood a few blocks uphill from downtown Puerto Vallarta and the Malecon ("boardwalk"). Great restaurants...

Really outstanding. We stayed at Casa Dulce Vida in late April 2005 and it was exactly what we were looking for- comfortable and quiet, but in the heart of the city. Easily within walking distance of the Malecon, shopping, restaurants. The room was enormous and quite reasonably priced. We took the advice of this site and were not sorry!!

There are few hotels in the world, where the owner will stand out front for an hour holding a parking space for you, especially not hotels that cost $50 a night. The Dulce Vida is a charming older house that has been carved into seven rooms and suites, all nicely decorated and spacious. I read the earlier review of someone...

“We loved Casa 5, it would be perfect for a couple or small family. There is a small tienda across the street that has everything you need - beer, soda, snacks, etc. And there is an incredible restaurant, owned by a Mexican woman that serves delicious home-cooked meals, for cheap. The "agua de jamaica" is a must-order.”
