Absolutely stunning property, the staff is wonderful and always ready to help. We enjoyed a beautiful week in a wonderful resort and are certainly thinking of returning to this part of paradise. There is the option to order food online from a gourmet store... it arrives at your doorsteps and the quality is the same as in the US. The resort provides everything you can think of gym, massages at the beach or at your villa, the pools are great and you hardly see guests... the only sound comes from the colorful birds. And a big thank you to Rick who was extremely helpful in answering all our questions in a timely manner. We felt welcome from the first minute we arrived in Puerto Vallarta.

Beautiful Villa and Resort

  • 4 of 5

We had a spectacular holiday! We arranged transportation via the resort to travel to the resort. The driver stopped at the Mega store so we could pick up supplies. We were a group of 9 people and to make the shopping as short as possible we spilt up the shopping list and got in an out in good time. Even though it was late Monica our concierge was at the villa to greet us. The villa is beautiful and perfect for large groups.Two bedrooms were palatial. The other three were very adequate. One room only had two double beds and one had two twins. The beds were super comfortable. We had daily maid service who provided a major clean daily. They could have just changed towels we put on the baskets. The washing machine did Not work too well . It was very finicky. The kitchen was lovely to work in but needed enough dishes to support the large group. On our request Fernando provied us with new plates, serving bowls, wine glaases, drinking glasses and flatware the next day. Serving plates, and cook ware would be nice. We aren't sure the oven worked as couldn't figure it out..Wifi access is via the resort and not the villa. The signal dropped very often. One of the guests relied on Wi-Fi so she could wor so internet issues very frustrating!

The villa opens up to a large patio with comfortable seating and a pool. Being there in January , the sun did not warm up the pool so the water was very cold. The pool wasn't clean so wouldn't have used anyway. The villa faces a beautiful ocean and hot tub. The tub was rarely warm let alone hot. Unless were were time share people we couldn't take our drinks to the beach or hot tub.

The resort is very beautiful with spectacular water feathers through out the complex. We used the tennis courts nearly daily and for those pickle ball lovers there is talk of court adjustments to support that sport.

The staff in the concierge office were warm , inviting and very happy to help. One of our friends needed physician support. They made sure there was quick physician access and made sure things went well.The staff arranged our travel to and from the villa as needed, arranged two chef cooked meals (that were fabulous) And arranged a great tequila tour for us.

The local town La Cruz is walkable from the resort and offered quaint restaurants with good food and music.Sunday offers HUGE market. It is very easy to take local buses to Buscarias and Sayulita.

Over all a 4.8 /5 star rating. Thank you Rick for sharing your villa with

Owner's Response: I am delighted you enjoyed the villa and the resort and the service people. It really is a special place. Maybe you were not aware but someone in your party specific asked Fernando not to clean the villa private pool as you did not want pool cleaner to disturbed your privacy and that you did not plan to use the pool. Let me apologize if there was a miscommunication. I am glad to hear that Fernando was able to provide the extra kitchen items you wanted. I will certainly look into the other items to make sure that they are fully working. Thank you again for selecting us. Rick

A lovely Villa, well situated, with excellent service

  • 5 of 5

Our family group of 10, including three generations, had a wonderful stay at by Vallarta Gardens. The property is well manicured and maintained, with private areas, as well as common areas. Although we were here Christmas – New Year’s, it never felt crowded. The concierge staff is professional, welcoming and always eager to help. The Villa itself was very spacious. Any smaller issues we had were quickly attended to.

A wonderful location...awesome place

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful stay at this Villa at Vallarta Gardens! We had 3 families with kids aged 3 to 9 yrs old stay here over Thanksgiving week. A beautiful villa with plenty of space and beds for all. The outdoor patio and private pool was perfect for the kids. Additionally, the 2 larger infinity pools and hot-tub were just down out back stairs. And the beaches were another 20 yards past that. Very easy to go back and forth between the areas. We had 2 nights with private dinners at the villa. The restaurant staff set up an amazing, relaxing dinner. Luis, Daniel, and others were all terrific and very kind. The two concierges, Monica and Augustina, were incredibly helpful. They answered every question we had and helped set up taxi service, restaurant reservations, and set up a fishing trip. The boat picked us up and dropped us off at the beach of the resort.

There were a few house maintenance issues, but the staff responded immediately and the owners are super-motivated to make it right.

We would definitely stay here again without hesitation.

Amazing and beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday!! The resort is beatiful and the house is amazing... The house is the same as it looks in the photos... the private pool is perfect, and other pools and jacuzzis in the resort are amazing... the beach is very quiet, just perfect for us having small children. Everything was perfect, so we recommend this villa 100%!!!
