  • Second visit, planning our third

    "My wife, daughter and I have visited this fantastic property two years in a row and are already planning for our third! I don't think I'd stay anywhere else in PV. It's spacious and private...just beautiful. Only two negatives from this trip- the groceries we had ordered to be there upon our arrival were in fact not there. That was a disappointment after 10 hours of travel, but the owner was super gracious and offered to pay for restuarant food to be delivered to us, but we decided to go downtown for dinner and grocery shopping and had a great time. It was a lemon that we turned into lemonaid and was not the owner's fault. The owner's customer service/service recovery efforts were top notch- so she scored points with us and we ended up with a fun night on the town. The other negative is the construction project across the way. It was a little louder this year than last, but really not a major nuisance. It's probably a third of a mile a way...? But the sound stands out because otherwise its just jungle and jungle sounds. In my opinion, this property is so perfect, you really have to nitpick to find any negatives. One comment on the beach- my understanding is that all beaches in the area are public, but this beach has a high end hotel on it. We felt a bit like interlopers on the beach, as the hotel guests received service while seated in their posh lounge chairs...but whatever, it's not really a big deal and it is a pretty beach. There are two other beaches between the villa and downtown that look nice- haven't been, but from what I see from the road, they look like a local hangout. I plan to try them next year. In short- its a great place and we love it. The owner is great, the property is great and PV is great...can't go wrong! Stargazing from the patio and night...being woken up by parrots (seriously- parrots...I was standing in the pool one morning and snapped a shot of a green Amazon parrot) and bright sun in the morning. In terms of safety- we never once felt unsafe. Our hometown of Chicago probably has more Mexican cartel activity than PV does! We were with out 3yo daughter and didn't feel unsafe for even a moment. Mexico is a big country- don't be scared away by crime that happens in hot spots."

  • Absolutely Perfect

    "We were a group of 4 and this place was perfect!! We could not have asked for a better week here. Dan and Esther are spot on with everything about this place. The views are amazing 24 hours a day. The pool was spotless and the beach was heavenly. One of the best vacations I have ever taken. Thank you Dan for an amazing week!"

  • Oceanfront Paradise!

    "10 of us stayed for a week and had great time! The chef, Robert, took great care of us and sent us home ten pounds heavier. Eduardo, made sure all of our needs were taken care of. Cristhian and Elena made sure our first trip to Mexico was unforgetable. The housekeepers left the rooms spotless. We would highly recommend."

  • Great Service & Location in a Lovely House

    "I arrived on a Tuesday with 3 other friends. Jesus, the caretaker of the house, greeted us warmly and remained at service the entire time. If we had a question or need, he was fully capable of providing a solution. The supporting staff, the cooks, maid and watchman at night, were also very splendid. We truly did not have a need unmet during our stay. I highly recommend staying at Marea Alta and would certainly stay again."
