A truly wonderful place
"I'm a discerning traveler who hesitates to rate places because I'm sort of old and bald and cranky and hard to please, but I have to break my own rule here:
We had a sort of extended family gathering here recently and this is a magnificent place. Close enough to Puerto Vallarta to get there fairly easily, close enough to San Pancho for dining out, groceries, and stuff, but remote enough to be unspoiled, clean, safe, and a GREAT place to recharge yourself. San Pancho is a friendly little place that is a treasure. Some of the visitors & locals gather at the beach in town to watch the sunset and then applaud. Or you can also watch the sunset at these villas from down at the water and applaud by yourself. One time I walked down to the water by myself and simply sat there for approaching an hour before realizing how long I had been just sitting--this is a perfect indicator of how unspoiled and private this place is. I saw more whales and turtles in a week here than my whole life combined.
The place is well maintained and I will never hesitate to recommend it!
I tried out my 2 years' high school Spanish at each opportunity in San Pancho and between my cruddy Spanish and their English, NEVER had a problem. I was amazed at how many locals have a working command of English and at no time was there any misunderstanding at food or beverage or shopping or entertainment-type establishments."

Spectacular views from exceptional ocean front home
"We had a fantastic stay at Casa Ladera. The home itself is well appointed and decorated with authentic Mexican furnishings. The best feature of Casa Ladera is the spectacular view and its location above the beach. Sunset vistas are extraordinary.
The home features many living areas – inside and out. Whether you want to lounge poolside or relax in a hammock on the lower level patio, there is something for everyone. The location near the beach is perfect. You can hear the waves crashing in the morning. It is a short walk to the un-crowded beach where you can fish or walk or just enjoy the surf.
The owners provide full instructions for your stay, including driving directions and details about the home. The staff is accommodating, but not intrusive. The home features DVDs, reference books (including Mexican cookbooks) and provides beach chairs and umbrellas. There is free wireless and surprisingly fast internet connection.
There is also a fully equipped kitchen and gas grill. On this trip, we chose to enjoy the many excellent restaurants San Pancho has to offer.
The spacious living areas, amazing ocean views and great patio space make this a wonderful place to relax and enjoy San Pancho’s beauty."

"Enjoyed a great get away as one of four couples. Casa Pacifica housed us nicely with 4 large bedrooms thankfully each with their own private ensuites. A generous Kitchen dining and living area although we lived on the patio :-) We generally did our own cooking and thought that we could have used a bigger frypan and another larger pot. Also note that no basic condiments are included - no salt/pepper etc.
We spent a lot of time on the patio which is very nice but the chairs have seen better days - a couple being particularly rough.
San Pancho is a nice, clean, quiet town - about a twenty minute walk by beach or road - where there is quite a nice selection of restaurants also small shops for groceries although I would advise doing a bigger shop at the Mega store for a much better selection.
We did have an issue during our stay and are happy to report that Jose Luis (the house manager) went above and beyond to help us out - so much appreciated - unfortunately we can not say the same of Ron (the owner) his lack of support/interest was very disappointing.
Overall we enjoyed our stay and recommend San Pancho for anybody wanting a sun filled holiday without being tourist filled"

"We recently spent a week in San Pancho in Casa de la Paz with our 9 months old daughter and it was a fantastic vacation.
The house is wonderful, spacious and tastefully decorated. Beds are very comfortable. AC works great. It has everything you need for cooking, playing in the pool. The garden is very lush, and the pool is lovely.
The house is also very central to the town, close to great options for eating out, and grocery shopping (particularly fresh fruits and vegetables), and a few minutes walk from the beach. Great stay, we will be back soon hopefully!"
