"We had a great vacation! This was our second time at this property and we again were thrilled with the location, weather, and service. The owners of the unit were excellent, accommodating, and responsive--we really could not have asked for better people to work with.
The ground floor unit offered us so value as it provided easy access, just steps away to the pool, beach and restaurants. The staff were the same as the year before and have amazing attention to detail. We always had towels, a lounger set up by staff the way we wanted it, reading material, toys, and food/drink could be ordered and delivered within minutes.
This is a great unit for a young family (we have a baby and a toddler), as well as for grandparents who also came with us on our vacation. The owners had a crib and child seat at the unit which saved us from lugging around extra equipment in the airport and they allowed us to use the equipment for no extra cost. The gym and spa were fantastic--we highly recommend the couples massage which came with champagne and chocolate strawberries.
La Estancia is pristine. It is comparable to a Four Seasons, but much more affordable. The location is quiet, yet if you want more entertainment you can walk across to the Flamingo's building which is 1 minute away and you get full access to their activities and restaurants, included.
Overall, just a great place and another stellar vacation that seems to be a guarantee at La Estancia. We would recommend and stay in this unit again, especially after meeting the owners and having such a pleasant experience."

"Our week at this lovely condo was a welcome respite from cooler, rainy weather at home. Everything we needed was available, and Marco was very helpful getting us squared away. We stuck pretty close to the beach and the pool during our stay--reading, enjoying the sun and the pool (and watching our favorite evening TV shows via the USA Now programming Joe provides). We appreciated Joe's restaurant recommendations and we loved the couple's massage special he recommended at Patty Spa. What a birthday treat for my wife! We prepared our breakfasts and lunches in the condo and a few dinners, walking to nearby restaurants for the rest. For us it was an economical, laid-back, "do-nothing" week. Next time we will venture farther from the condo!"

"Three reasons why we return year after year to this particular condo:
1. WELL-EQUIPPED KITCHEN: This kitchen is better equipped than my kitchen at home. I really appreciate that because I have more time to experiment with cooking when I’m on vacation. We made use of the blender, juicer, food processor, barbecue grill and pressure cooker this time around, and we were successful at guava agua fresca, flan, tropical smoothies and multiple variations of mango salsa and guacamole.
2. EXCELLENT BED: The bed in the master bedroom is extremely comfortable. My husband and I have a hard time finding beds when we travel that are as good as ours at home, so by the time we're headed home, one of us is usually saying, "Good. I'll finally be able to sleep well." But this bed is even better than ours, and we feel so rested the entire vacation. We slept with the sliding door wide open so we can hear the waves crash all night long. Wonderful!
2. AMAZING SUNRISE: The sunrise is amazing. This condo is on the seventh floor and has an unparalleled panoramic view to the east as well as the west. Some mornings we had our breakfast on the eastern deck to watch the sun rise over the misty Sierra Madre mountains with the jungle spread out before us. Because this building is the last condo tower on the north end of Nuevo Vallarta (before Flamingos towers begin half a mile away), I never felt surrounded by towers or people. So peaceful. And what a bonus to see the pelicans and frigate birds soar right at eye level past our shoreside balcony!
I have returned to this condo three times now and am finally writing a review. The location of this condo is perfection and the owner clearly pays attention to details; as do the maintenance staff and security guards of the entire complex. I always feel very safe and well taken care of. Thank you for another great stay!"

"What a view! We loved coffee in the morning and sunsets on the balcony. Enough room at the table for meals outside, or stretching out on the comfy chairs, this outdoor space was hard to beat. Inside was spacious, clean, and modern with plenty of room to spread out. We loved relaxing under the palapa, conveniently nestled between the beach, bar, pool and restaurant. We used the boogie boards provided to hit the waves each morning. The hotel staff was helpful when booking activies off the property. We did not purchase the all inclusive at Dreams, but found some great food options within walking distance. We had a car and also purchased groceries to take advantage of the kitchen. When we go back, we are definitely going back to this place!"
