Mark purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Mark chose South Zone
We love Puerto Vallarta. In particular the South Shore is lush, tropical, and more scenic with the Sierra Madre mountains lining the coast. Plus, the beaches and water are cleaner than those of the North Shore. We like the close proximity to the beautiful Old Town of Vallarta while still having the solitude of a private villa.

BEST VACATION EVER
THIS RENTAL IS THE MOST WONDERFUL PLACE...
Thanksgiving week in Puerto Vallarta
Wonderful experience. The Villa is beautiful, with a view that you could sit and look at all day. But the best thing is the staff! Sergio, the house manager was there for our every need. Daniel, the Chef was outstanding! He could fix anything. The House keeper Ramona did an excellent job also. Better than any 5 star resort I've ever stayed at. I would highly recommend this experience!
Wonderful wonderful vacation !!!
I've been to so many places all over the world for vacation, but I really can say this villa is absolutely the best.
The views are spectacular, the accommodations are welcoming, very clean and if there is anything that you need, Sergio and Daniel will help you find it. They are terrific people, you can't ask for better. Everything of this vacation rental was perfect but I would say it is just average without the service from Sergio and Daniel. Sergio is very kind person and always smile. If you need something, he is always there to help you. And the chef Daniel is also very friendly and his food was really really delicious, it was over 5 star.
There's so many good things for this villa but I feel that I don't want to talk anymore, because I want to keep this place only for me as my secret vacation spot! Anyways I highly recommend this villa and I'm sure it will be perfect choice for wonderful wonderful vacation.
Thank you very much to Sergio and Daniel for doing everything to make our vacation so perfect and I already miss everything. I can't imagine any other way of my vacation. I will back soon !!
Stop here! This is your dream vacation!!!
Villa as Splendora is absolutely spectacular! We had the best time, with the most attentive service and a view to die for! The pictures don’t disappoint. But what makes this place home over the top is Sergio, your own personal Houseman, and Daniel, your own five star chef! It was hard to leave. We’ll definitely be coming here again!
Truly spectacular - luxury and pampering at its finest!
With so much of the world left to see, as a general rule I don't return to the same vacation home or even location twice. But this past week Villa Esplendora, and especially Daniel and Sergio, reminded me why rules are meant to be broken.
The villa itself is absolutely beautiful. Top of the line furnishings, amenities and décor. The infiniti pool is perfectly heated and the view makes you feel as though you are in the ocean, but without the sand and bugs. The connected huge jacuzzi is even warmer and a beautiful place to watch stars and the moon from when a night ocean breeze sets in. But what really sets this home and the entire experience apart from any other is its staff, most notably Daniel and Sergio. Daniel is a phenomenal chef (and bartender!) that makes it unconscionable to eat anywhere other than the villa during your way. And Sergio...well Sergio takes care of any thing and everything. He makes sure all guests are treated like royalty and taken care of in a way that before staying here I only dreamed of.
Thank you for another amazing stay--I hope to return for a third time sooner rather than later!
What a truly amazing place! We can’t say enough about how everyone was amazing and the place is beyond 5 stars. Sergio and Danny became good friends and will accommodate any requests. We travelled with 2 parents, 3 adult children, 5 children and one infant. So there were many varying needs. Despite this, they accommodated our every wish and then some. Sergio coordinated all our taxis (a must) and set us up with: Fishing (amazing with Whales jumping out of the water), Kayaking and jet skis. The prices he negotiated were the best. Danny, well what can you say about his cooking; beyond amazing. Sergio would coordinate your food with you and Danny the night before and shop for the freshest ingredients. Then Danny and Serio would put on a virtuoso performance. They quickly learned our likes and dislikes and it was amazing how attentive they were. They present you with a bill for all the food which is great. Carmen and her team did all the laundry and cleaning. It was like fairies that come in and clean, wash and press your clothes, all the while making themselves nearly invisible (going to take a while to get the kids back to reality).
You hear people gush at how they become part of your family. Well that is exactly what they did. We already miss them and their incredible infectious personalities. We travel all over the world and our kids have been going on vacation with us for years. Now, this is the only place they want to go. We can’t wait to go again. We want to thank everyone for an amazing, relaxing and over the top experience. We read all the review and ours and theirs can’t convey the sheer joy we had there.
Make sure you coordinate all taxis with Sergio and ask him to find out the price beforehand.
Food: Amazing. It took us a while to get used to this as we felt a bit like we were asking for too much. Ask for what you need!. We wanted more fruits, dark chocolate, nuts and “smores’ for later night snacks. Danny makes the most amazing chocolate -chip cookies.
$$. They say bring enough for a day or two. This was a bit of a problem as the “ATM” at the beach area was always broken. We suggest brining enough cash to cover the first 4 days because as fun as going into town sounds, we never wanted to leave the house.
There is a small beach a short but treacherous hike away. There is a decent beach in the cove. We heard of a nicer beach that is accessible only by boat
There is no xbox or binoculars (a must) so bring your own.
Snorkling & Diving: At Mismaloya Beach, just 2 miles South of Villa Esplendora, you will find snorkeling and diving tours that will fully equip you for a short jaunt to the Los Arcos ecological marine preserves - which boasts the best diving and snorkeling in the Puerto Vallarta area. You can also take many different excursions that leave from the Marina Terminal in town.
Charter Fishing: Puerto Vallarta has some wonderful fishing excursions. Just tell our houseman Sergio and he'll set everything up for you.
Jungle Canopy Tour: This is a must visit in Puerto Vallarta and is lots of fun. Our favorite tour company is Canopy Tours De Los Veranos.
Golf: Our favorite courses are located at Vista Vallarta, where you will find two championship golf courses - one designed by Jack Nicklaus and the other by Tom Weiskoff. Wow!
Whale Watching: You can take a whale watching cruise or just a lovely sunset cruise where you are almost certain to see whales from December through April, along with the typical sightings of Dolphins and other marine life. Make sure you bring some binoculars!
Getting to and from downtown Puerto Vallarta is easy. Just a few minute ride away, taxis are plentiful and cheap. If you want to feel like a local, there is also a bus route that goes directly downtown that comes right to our villa!
