"Words really can't express how AMAZING my 40th Birthday Celebration was in Puerto Vallarta at the Villa Esplendora! The location is set perfectly off the ocean, and can be seen miles away off the coast! The Villa is not only BEAUTIFUL...it was perfect for me and 8 of my girlfriends. Being a Hotel Snob, I find that my standard for staying at any location is pretty high! Let's just say that my expectations were beyond met at this Villa! I don't think I will ever want to stay at a hotel again...LOL! The location was BEAUTIFUL! It was clean, and everything was working properly. The staff...Sergio, Daniel, and Meche...served us like we were Queens. Because of Sergio, the House Manager, there was nothing that we could want for. He made sure that we had everything we needed and WANTED! The level of serve was actually better in the Villa, than in the city. Which is what kept us in the Villa more nights than we had originally planned. Daniel was our Chef. He is so talented! Seriously KNOWS what he is doing in the kitchen. The seasoning and presentation of food was, as if we were in a 5 Star Restaurant every night. His ability, is second to none! We actually stopped asking for specific meals and just told him to surprise us!!!!!! We were sad to leave him...LOL! Meche...went over and beyond to make sure we were satisfied. She even washed our clothes before we left...I can't think of one vacation where I returned home with clean clothes!
The Villa was in a great location! If we needed a cab, Sergio would call and they were there within minutes. We were able to zip line, jet ski, and shop! In addition, we had a pool, sauna, stereo system food, and MARGARITAS...so if we wanted to...we could stay at the house ALL day! The views of the ocean were straight out of a movie! Not to mention the sunsets! We couldn't have imagine another location on the island that would have given us the same view! We were grateful!
While I love to travel, until I have seen the world, I prefer not to return to the same place, after one visit!!!! HOWEVER...this was a place that if I needed a getaway, and didn't want to fuss about where to go...I would without question or hesitation RETURN to Villa Esplendora! If I could I would keep it a secret...so I don't have to worry about booking...lOL!
Thank you Mark, Sergio, Daniel, and Meche! Because of you...My 40th was the BEST Birthday EVER!
