What could be better than overlooking the beautiful Banderas Bay and listening to the waves crash on the shore 10 feet from the table while enjoying some delicious food? This restaurant, with its friendly staff and beautiful atmosphere is located at the Girasol Sur Condos,...More

This palapa type restaurant has superior service, a fantastic view, and a good menu. The food was good but not out of the park. It is definitely good for at least once for the overall effect. Skip the margaritas, small and not very tasty.

This place was awesome. We stayed in the condo complex and ate breakfast here every morning. Food was awesome for the price and the view was the best. Saw schools of bat ray, turtles, and dolphins while drinking the morning coffee.

They have good food, a lovely view and fun entertainment (certain nights of the week). It's south of the city and you can't beat the location and the proximity to the lovely Gemalas beach.

Stayed at the Girasol Sur condominium for a few days in February and we ate all of our meals at the restaurant. Food was good, prices were good and the waiters were friendly. Great view of the ocean.

Prices at the Restaurant are very reasonable and they offer a Happy Hour from 6 to 7 pm every night. Most nights from December to the end of March, live bands play in the evenings. Service is excellent and the evening's sunset views are as...More

We stayed here for a week in February 2016. We really enjoyed being slightly out of town, on a DIY vacation, yet easy (8 peso) bus ride to anywhere in Puerto Vallarta. Beautiful location, perfect semi-private beach, pool, restaurant, gym, library, mini grocery and other...More

We stayed at the Girasol condos for a month in January. Although we went out occasionally to town to eat at Cafe des Artists, La Palapa, and Barcelona Tapas, the restaurant at Girasol was just as good or better! The menu is diverse and all...More

Are the 100 condos on the ground floor or are they on the second floor.

To the best of my knowledge they are on EVERY FLOOR. I would not consider Girasol Sur to be a place for people with a mobility challenge.

Does the mini mart sell wine, beer, liquor? Thanks

Yes they do. Not a drinker myself but I'm sure they could hook you up with your favorite brand. You'll be fine.
Can you let me know the hours of the restaurant and pool bar? Are there any other restaurants within a mile or so to walk to?

I don't recall exact hours but we usually visit for dinner at sunset and stay until around 10:00. I stayed at a condo at a neighboring property and recall that the bar and restaurant were also open for breakfast and lunch... More
