Recent Barra de Navidad reviews

  • We'll be back in 2016

    "In 2014, my husband and I stayed a week at Villa Santa Barbara before moving to another place where we had stayed for many years. We liked it so much, we decided to spend our whole vacation (5 weeks) at VSB in 2015. We are so happy we did. On arrival, our kitchen was stocked with a delicious meal, beer, and wine, allowing us to simply relax and enjoy our first night in our beautiful suite. The next morning The French Bakery boat came right up to the dock with a variety of croissants, pastries, and pies. And Barb and Barry are there to answer any questions and make suggestions if asked. They really are the perfect hosts. I was a little afraid that I would miss the ocean view we had in our prior accomodations. We soon discovered the view from VSB is just as beautiful and even more interesting. Watching the comings and goings of the fisherman in the canal, the sailboats in the lagoon, the yachts in the marina, and all the birds and fish entertained us everyday. At the same time, it is MUCH quieter than being on the beach near bars. If relaxing isn't your thing, you can be as busy as you like. If you have been to the Barra/Melaque area you already know that the entertainment options are plentiful. There are lots of tours, sporting options, music venues, and so many eating and drinking establishments that we couldn't try them all in 5 weeks. Every year, I make a point to talk to people who are well traveled and ask them about their favorite places. I have yet to meet someone who didn't think that Barra/Melaque was one of the best. And for us, Villa Santa Barbara is the best place to stay."

  • Awesome Vacation Rental

    "We stayed for a week and a half and absolutely loved it. The house was clean and comfortable, our hosts were great and the town was everything we hoped it would be; an authentic Mexican experience, living in town, a short walk to the center of town and the beach. We made lots of day trips and transportation was easy and very affordable. We took the local bus to Melaque and La Manzanilla, and the water taxi to Isla de Navidad, to go to different towns and beaches. Sunsets over the Pacific were spectacular."

  • Villa Santa Barbara

    "My big family (10 adults!) went down to Mexico and stayed with Barry & Barb in their villa for a week of fun in the sun... it was fantastic! B & B went out of their way to ensure we all were comfortable and happy, including a huge delicious lasagna (including veggie version) for our first dinner upon arrival. They gave us lots of good tips about where to eat out, what to see, and do; arranged for massages and pedicures, let us use their bikes, took us on a boat trip thru the canal and around the lagoon, and lots more. But they left us to enjoy their villa and pool on our own most of the time. We hung out pool side or in their huge palapa most of the time into the wee hours of the morning. And enjoyed the beautiful beaches just 3 blocks away every day. Barra is a great town, especially if you are tired of the resort scene as we are. Quiet, simple, authentic, friendly. We had an amazing week!"

  • Best in Barra de Navidad

    "We are a frequent vacationer in Mexico and Barra de Navidad and we love staying at this particular rental property. For a North American, it has all of the conveniences of home including a gas BBQ, high speed internet, WI FI, Canadian & US TV channels plus a private backyard pool when you don't want to go down to the ocean to swim. In addition, it is tastefully decorated and furnished and a short walk to the downtown. It is our favourite place to stay in Mexico and is ideal for having a fun holiday."
