"I consider myself a well seasoned Puerto Vallarta "Private Luxury Villa Rental" aficionado having rented 8 different villas over the course of 6 years now. I've made it an annual tradition to experience a new private villa every August in PV, some years visiting more than once. Each villa has offered a different location, view, service, chef and overall vibe. I've experienced sleek and modern 12,000 sq. foot villas boasting 8 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms to smaller, luxuriously appointed 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom villas with incredible art collections. Each villa experience has had its pro's and con's - from wild animals foraging for food in the kitchen late at night to amazing settings but miserably disappointing chefs. I'm happy to say that Villa Los Arcos was one of the BEST experiences I've ever had in all of my PV luxury villa experiences - and I'm a HARD critic!!!
First and foremost, hands down, the staff was/is AMAZING - Alfonso, Chuey and Becka! Alfonso, the house manager, kicked my friends' butts with early morning hikes through the mountains, waterfalls and natural pools - and they LOVED it! Every evening before departing he would ask "Do you want tomorrow morning's hike easy, medium or hard?" For those of us who wanted nothing to do with a morning hike whatsoever, we awoke to coffee by the pool followed by an incredible "Chuey-made" breakfast - absolutely delicious! EVERY meal that Chuey created was incredible - and that's saying A LOT!!! She is simply amazing!
We wanted to rent jet-skis for an afternoon and Alfonso arranged to have 4 jet-skis DELIVERED and WAITING FOR US on the water at the dock below the house!!! We simply hopped on and took off... Incredible!
The list of positives about Villa Los Arcos goes on and on... All I can say is that our experience was absolutely wonderful and I would whole-heartedly recommend it to any of my closest family and friends. It was a blissful, beautiful, relaxing, carefree, delicious, pampered, satisfying experience! Treat yourself and experience it for yourself!"
