I have stayed at several establishments in Puerto Vallarta and it is my opinion that Villa Olivia on Ampas in the Romantica Zone is by far and without question the best place to stay. It is family-owned, close to the beach providing wonderful views of the beach and the bay and within walking distance to the beach and many of...

Don't miss this jewel of a boutique hotel just two blocks from the beach in the Zona romantica. Denise, the manager, is a delightful and caring innkeeper, and is always attentive to the needs of her guests. The hotel is impeccable in every detail, and the welcome is always warm and hospitable. I've stayed here now for several years and...

We have stayed at Villa Olivia several times and have always found it a very welcoming place. Most rooms have a lovely view of the bay and town, with beautiful sunsets when clear and a rooftop terrace with lap pool, and elevators to all floors. We have stayed primarily in the studio units, and all units have been upgraded with...

A lovely little boutique-style hotel/B&B in Old Town. Our 5th-floor room was comfortably appointed, with a full kitchen and a private terrace that opened to a larger patio with wonderful bay views. The rooftop pool/sundeck/outdoor kitchen was a great space with fantastic 360-degree views, and there were many other comfortable public areas throughout the villa. Housekeeping service was efficient and...

This is a very nice boutique-type hotel near the beaches in Zona Romantica. PROs and CONs PROs (in no particular order) Staff is wonderful and accommodating. The room (at least ours) was well laid out, tastefully decorated, fully appointed studio-type apartment easily suitable for short (I'd say 1-week or less) stay. The kitchen area has full-sized refrigerator, four burner stove...

1) Dryers are available at Villa Olivia. Past experience has shown us that most guests do not require one during their stays. Those who have needed one simply inquired and were duly supplied. Please do not hesitate to ask for a hair dryer. 2) Not surprisingly, and be aware, there are parties and spikes in noise level during the Christmas...

This is our favourite place to stay in Puerto Vallarta, and we have returned time and again over the years. It has it all: a superb location minutes from the beach and PV's most vibrant nightlife; beautiful views of the bay; fantastic roofdeck with swimming pool perfect for sunning during the day and socialising at night; a small but functional...

We have been to the PV area several times but had never stayed in the south side of town. Thanks to TA research, we found Villa Olivia, an immaculate boutique hotel property, owned and operated by a Quebec family. The hotel is located on Amapas street, a steep set of stairs up from the Blue Chairs beach club, and near...

Thanks to a posting on Tripadvisor from JR we discovered Villa Olivia! We have stayed in different areas of PV, but never in the Romantic Zone. We were there for one week, but hope to spend more time there in the future. Booking was a breeze. Denise is a gracious hostess and was waiting for us when we arrived. She...

First, this review should have been done long time ago, nevertheless here we are trying to keep our promise. It was our first time staying in Villa Olivia during Spring break time this year with family (14 people). We could not be happier about the service and and the hospitality of this establishment. Denise and Mariette were very helpful and...

I have been staying at the Olivia for five years now and couldn't be happier. I have stayed in a few places in PV, which have been okay. The Olivia exceeds these places by far. For the price point and location I don't think you could find a better place. The family that owns the villa is so kind, you...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a family-owned villa offering personalized hospitality next to the beach and in the heart of town -- the Zona Romantica. Ideally located for people who love quaint cobblestone streets and splashes of vivid colors while strolling through town. From your secluded balcony you can enjoy the soothing sound of ocean waves, breathtaking iridescent sunsets, and even the thrill of spotting migrating humpbacks during whale-watching season. Every morning, you are brought the choice of coffee or tea to your room while you make that oh-so-difficult decision of how to spend your day -- sipping tropical drinks under a beach palapa, going on a jungle canopy or ATV excursion, horse-back riding, golf, scuba diving, hiking along the river or swimming in the ocean waves. The choices are endless... ... more   less
