  • simply perfect...and the *food*!!!

    "My stay at Casa Ileana was simply perfect...everything a vacation should be! Where to start...the villa itself exceeded expectations - it is stunning, comfortable, chic and rustic - with such lovely and whimsical decor touches that represent the best in Mexican artisania. Its so easy to feel immediately at home here - and completely pampered! I loved the views from the large terrace/pool area - with all of downtown Puerto Vallarta literally laid at your feet. Adjacent to the terrace, the living dining area is especially comfy with its oversized, welcoming sofas -- you could settle in so easily for a nap, reading or watching movies that you'd be tempted to never leave. The bedrooms are also beautifully furnished and comfortable, with exceptional bedding -- and, the light can be totally blocked, meaning deep, restful sleep and late-morning wake-ups. Once you do wake, be sure to have Christina prepare breakfast for you...fresh-squeezed orange juice, eggs a la Mexicana, bacon, tortillas and fresh fruit. I feel the need to give special praise to Christina, and her amazing culinary skills. Christina is not a "cook", but likely one of the best chefs in Puerto Vallarta. On our last night, we had her prepare dinner, and our only regret was not having asked to do to this...every night! The creativity, flavors and presentation rivaled any top restaurant...in Vallarta or elsewhere. She shared that she has been to a local culinary school, and it certainly shows--do NOT miss having her prepare meals for you...and you can request whatever your favorites are, but then let her use her creativity...you won't be disappointed. The time flew by, and the unbeatable location made it super easy to wander into town to go for a run, explore the shops, or enjoy a taco. But seriously--it was hard to leave! We will definitely be back...Casa Ileana was such a special place to enjoy our vacation. I'd be remiss if I didn't mention how helpful Sylvia was in helping us plan our getaway, and with our booking and arrangements. Absolutely a five-star experience...I'd give it more, if that were an option!"

  • Perfect...again!

    "I made my third trip to Villa Francisco for a guys fishing and golf vacation. All of my visits have been great, but this time we made more use of Tina's great cooking and I am glad we did. The house is super well appointed, the staff is incredibly helpful, and the food was out of this world. It's a hard place to leave, and we are already lining up dates for next April."

  • Awesome

    "This property is absolutely "jaw dropping beautiful" with its breathtaking views of Banderas Bay, infinity pool that appears to blend into the ocean, large waterfall spa and gorgeous interior and exterior space. It was only a 15 minute walk along the beach to the famous Malecon and Old Town. All of our guests had their own private suite and patio that took full advantage of the ocean views. As we were celebrating my husband's birthday, management arranged for a musical trio that could not have been any better. The staff was amazing! Mauricio, our personal chef, prepared exquisite meals daily and did all of our grocery shopping. Paco our personal bartender created the most beautiful and delicious tasting drinks and Alonso and Olga also took special care of us. Thank you all! I would highly recommend this villa to families or groups that appreciate being pampered and living in beautiful surroundings! Myrna, Kelowna, BC"

  • A great spot!

    "We recently stayed at Casa Valentin and were quite impressed with all it had to offer! We were a group of four and rented only the upper portion and it was the perfect size for our group! The dipping pool was lovely after a long hot day, the kitchen had enough supplies to make a nice meal, and the rooftop terrace was ideal for relaxing at any time of day. The bathrooms were plenty large and there was an abundance of towels :) And don't let me forget that the location is prime time! The house is just steps from old town, no need at all for a car. We will definitely be back!! One thing to note: the stairs are seriously business and not for the faint of heart. We are four athletes and still found ourselves huffing and puffing after each trek!"
