"My family (3 adult couples) rented Castillo La Princesa in February, 2015. The villa was absolutely beautiful - it exceeded our expectations! One of the key reasons I selected La Princesa is that it offers 3 beautiful master bedroooms - which makes it great for 3 couples. The views of the harbor/Manzanillo and the open water were stunning. And the location is one of the best in La Punta… as we had sunshine from sunrise to sunset.
La Punta itself is a wonderful community - a perfect and safe location for a Mexican vacation.
The house staff, especially Ofelia and Jasmine, were both delightful and they made us feel most welcome. Ofelia’s cooking was fantastic and her willingness to satisfy the various food preferences of my family was appreciated.
The Owner was extremely helpful in providing various information and in being so caring. Dealing with her was a pleasure. While we never met, I felt as if the Owner was a long time family friend. Her suggestion to rent a car service was also very good advice. This service enabled us to visit sites, beaches, towns etc. that made our vacation in the Manzanillo area even more special."

"This was our second visit to the property taking four couples along with us to experience the best of the best. If you have not visited this home or Manzanillo do yourself a favor and do so. You are treated like a king by the house staff Aure and Alecia. The food and quality of its preparation is like going to a five star restaurant. The surrounding amenities are incredible and you simply do nothing but relax or enjoy various activities of your choosing. We rented a boat for snorkeling and whale watching and visited the local casino another evening.
One of my guests summed it up in the best manner "this is the first vacation that at the end of my stay I did not want to leave" "normally he is ready to get back to work" his wife said but this is the first time he has never made that statement. I think that says it all."

"Our experience at Villa de Arcos was a 5 *. The views from every floor are spectacular. Being at the end of the road, there is no traffic noise. Just a few crowing roosters and the occasional barking dog. Such is the beauty of Mexico!
In summary, the house is beautiful and well maintained inside and out. We loved the tile work and unique decorations throughout, and the furniture is in overall good condition. We found the beds to be very comfortable and the on suite master bath is huge!!! There is a lot of storage space in all the bedrooms with an abundant supply of both bath and beach towels, along with extra sheets and blankets. The kitchen is well equipped, so it’s easy to make yummy drinks and healthy meals. FYI: there's a great pizza place at the bottom of the hill and a Mexican fellow sets up a hamburger/hotdog stand next door to the pizza place. Very yummy and tasty!
The house has multiple levels, thus MANY MANY stairs. We were fine with this, but those with mobility issues should be warned. Also, there is NO AC. However, there are ceiling fans throughout the house and these are very efficient at keeping the air fresh and cool all day long.
Outdoors, the plants and flowers around the pool are beautiful and there's also a mango tree! The pool itself is wonderful and was well maintained during our stay. The pool loungers (foam) are a nice bonus. What a luxury!!! The palapa / patio furniture is well kept with lots of chairs, including comfy sunbeds. We ate outside almost every meal. The patio area is large and the views are stunning.
The caretaker (pool expert, gardener and general handyman) was very helpful in answering our needs, as was his wife (property manager). If we had any questions, they had most of the answers. We were greeted warmly upon our arrival and shown how everything works.
As mentioned in previous reviews, the climb to reach the house can be quite the adventure, even with a car, especially after the rain damaged the road while we were there, leaving some pretty big rutts. We opted to rent a car and this was finally a very wise choice for us. The rental owner has contacts at the nearby car rental office and he was great in setting this up for us. The car was waiting for us at the house when we arrived.
Would we rent this home again? You bet we would!!! Except that it is already reserved for several months next winter… That shows just how great a place this is!!!"
