this hotel / resort has fantastic views of the water and the town below. the unit I stayed in was the one with the top waterfall and on the upper street level. I am anxiously trying to re-visit. if you can trade a time share week for Ocho cascadas you will want to return again.

Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. And thank you for letting others know about Ocho Cascadas. Sorry timeshare owners can't trade in to Ocho Cascadas. Our owners come back year after year and don't trade out. We have villas open for rental from time to time and we'd love to have you back as a renter..... or...

this is probably the most beautiful private resort building in the world. I've been many times (before and after the remodel). the location just south of PV is excellent and the staff is always the best.

Ocho Cascades is a small ,architecturally interesting, hotel in a lovely cobblestoned residential area in Puerto Vallarta. I was interested as it was built by the late Ed Giddings a famous Southern California architect. It was built in 1981 and recently completely updated. There are 8 large Villas built down a hill, each with a private pool cascading one into...

Just finished spending 8 nights in heaven! We stayed in Villa 2 since had 3 bedrooms and nearly 2800 sq ft. -- great for family of 4 and my mother in law. Usually we are very active when we travel, but decided to try a different type of vacation for once -- we weren't disappointed! Was the most relaxing vacation...

Spoiled...Yep, that was our week. Relaxing in our private pool, looking out at the bay and beautiful sunsets. Getting massages every day and having a personal chef come to fix dinner in the evenings. We had maid service in the morning and evenings. The staff even went shopping for us for our supplies! The bed was so comfortable - and...

We have been coming to Ocho for several years and were a little worried that the upgrades would take away from the old charm. We were wrong. The lobby is amazing. The view, as always, took our breath away, and the villa was gorgeous. The elevators are a welcome addition. Even in February, we took advantage of the air conditioning...

We had a catered dinner one night in our cozy but yet very large 2BR unit. Bathrooms were great, has it's own swimming pool and outdoor kitchen area. Very exclusive place. Try it if you're lucky enough to get in.

This is my 3rd time staying at "Ocho", first time since renovations in 2014. It was amazing before and is simply 5-star in every way now. There are 9 open air villas and a penthouse, one above the other. Each unit has a dipping pool on the side of the living area (with cascading water from about 10-4 each day)....

We owned a time share. The place is rustic and beautiful. The kitchen is limited. No microwave, at least at the time. No TV or radios allowed to keep noise down. The bag of groceries we ordered to have there upon arrival were outrageously priced. It is far away from grocery stores and taking a taxi is pricey. The electrical...

Sorry to hear you had a problem with the previous management and the original villas. The New Ocho appears to have overcome all of your concerns about the old resort. Everything has been upgraded. including microwaves, all electrical, elevators, air conditioning, all fixtures and appliances. The new Ocho is certainly not rustic. Maybe you should come back to see us
