Rest and relaxationPosted Feb 10, 2014
Pros: Beautiful pool in a lush well-cared for garden; fabulous buffet breakfast every morning; beach towels; daily maid service; clean and spacious rooms...
Cons: At Casa Virgilio? Nothing. This place is perfect just the way it is!
Location: Vallarta Adventures is nearby, as are Puerto Vallarta and Bucerias. Sayulita is not far away either. For all of those you need to bus or cab though.
Nuevo Vallarta isn't for everyone, and it is not a place I would usually stay. But for a couple of very relaxing days at the end of a hectic two week Mexican adventure, it was the perfect place to go. If you are the gated community type of traveller, then this is the perfect place for you. If you are an adventurer and lover of authentic experiences of the places you visit, this is probably not the place for you. I spent two of my three days at Casa Virgilio pool-side soaking up rays. It was peaceful and relaxing and just what I needed for my last two days of holiday. And the breakfast buffet is delicious! There is not much to do in Nuevo Vallarta itself, but it is close to Puerto Vallarta and Bucerias. This is a gated community so there are not very many restaurants around. I went outside the gates for a few more authentic meals, but the two dinners I had in Nuevo were fabulous and not too pricey. Ginger Garden Lounge was so tasty I went back for a second meal there.

Just wonderful...Posted Jan 19, 2014
There is nothing to say except that this place is perfect, just truly wonderful. A little oasis in the midst of the hideousness that is Nuevo Vallarta. Virgil is a gracious host, the staff work hard to keep the place just perfect, sumptuous breakfast every morning... just loved my stay here. It seems petty but I am going to point out a couple of mildly negative things, mainly so people know what to expect. The temperature of the pool will take your breath away (stayed in January) but then, we were spoiled, there was always the hot tub. The beds, while big, are very firm and if that's not what you like, then you will sleep fitfully. And the main negative thing, it is situated smack dab in the middle of the wasteland that is Nuevo. If you have a rental car, much of this problem is alleviated, but if you don't, you're kinda stuck. I admit, I'm an Old Town guy, but really, there's nothing going on here. There's a row of shops and restaurants a few hundred yards away, but it's a good 3/4 mile to the beach and the ghastly all inclusive hotels. They built Nuevo kinda thinking that the hotels would make the surrounding area thrive, but the fat tourists don't ever come out of their hotels so it hasn't really worked. After that little rant, though, I will say, absolutely without reservation, that if I had to be a prisoner in Virgil's compound for a period of time and not let out beyond the walls, I would surrender myself to that duty in an instant.

Complete Relaxation w/ the BEST breakfast in town!Posted Jan 10, 2014
Location: Easy 10 minute walk to the public beach, 2 minute walk to a few good restaurants, easy for taxi drivers to find.
My wife and I stayed 7 nights at Casa Virgilios for our honeymoon, and leaving was one of the hardest things either of us has ever done. We loved the atmosphere of eating breakfast with the other guests every morning, we loved how comfortable and welcoming Virgilio and his staff were, and we cannot wait to return. The house itself is absolutely beautiful, with so much custom tile work I was seeing new designs even after I had stayed there for an entire week. The breakfast every morning changes from day to day, and was simply delicious, wholesome, and just plain amazing. Casa Virgilios was about a 10 minute walk to the public beach, and is a cheap taxi ride to the Marina or neighboring areas. I would recommend this Bed and Breakfast to everyone. We simply do not have one bad word to say about it. If you want a mellow, easy-going atmosphere, and like a little adventure is your vacations, Casa Virgilios is for you.

Wasn't happy when they gave away our room..Posted Jan 6, 2014
Pros: It was close to the resort we were going too and the property was beautifull with gardens, a pool, nice sitting areas, it's a gem and quiet..
Cons: The problem that happened with us could have been avoided if the reservation room and parties names had been checked on arrival..
Location: There's a few restaurants within a short walk and there's a bus stop in that area also.. PV is about 30 mins or so by bus.. NV is quieter than PV...
I had booked this room 5 months in advance.. I had looked at the photo's and decided on the Pisces room which was confirmed with payment.. We had late arrival noted and got there around 6:45pm.. We were told after a long day that they were over booked and 2 reservations had booked at the same time the day before threw expedia and that they had got there before us, and all he had left was a room that he was using for an office, needless to say, that wasn't exceptable, as I booked 5 months ago not just the day before.. The owner talked to one of the couples that had just got there before us and they agreed to move.. It wasn't the room I had reserved, but it was better than the other one.. There wasn't a TV in the room as advertised, other than that it was ok, luckly it was only for 1 night, but I really didn't need the hassel...
