Spend the day catching some rays at Vallarta Gardens Resort and Spa - Luxury Villas's private beach, relaxing by one of the resort's 4 outdoor swimming pools, or pampering yourself at the full-service spa.

Uncomplicated yet compelling, Vallarta Gardens embodies the ideal of resort living. The Mexican Coastal style of architecture incorporated open spaces and outdoor living to take advantage of the nearly perfect climate of Banderas Bay.

The stately whitewashed homes are a striking contrast to the rich natural colors of the grounds, while the wood and stone details blend well with the tropical surroundings. This architectural detail dates back over 2,000 years, reflects a strong Mexican tradition, and is admired for its beauty, utility and environment-friendly construction.

I am in charge of a private rental pool of other quality villas at the resort. Please check out my website listed here on HomeAway for more photos of the villa and resort along with additional area information.

“Perfect for a family vacation or reunion!”

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Vallarta Gardens. The complex is clean and family-friendly and our visit was grand.

On this trip, we had 9 family members -- ranging in age from 1 to 65 -- from 4 different states for a week-long holiday. There was plenty of room. With all the different levels -- including a roof deck with a sweeping view of the ocean -- everyone could have privacy or quiet if they needed it. We had the baby napping on one floor while the older kids played games on another floor and the adults relaxed and read books somewhere else. When we wanted to be together, the first floor great room was spacious enough for all of us to gather.

There are many pools on the property but the one near the restaurant was our favorite - it is next to a hot tub and beside the beach. The beach is clean, and there are two sections - one area is a bay with very calm water which is perfect for little ones to play. Some of the adults took the free kayaks out and enjoyed that very much.

The food at the restaurant is excellent. They serve breakfast and lunch. There are other restaurants within walking distance or a short cab ride away. There are two small grocery convenience stores near the entrance to the complex (easy walking distance) where you can get what you need for basic meals.

The staff is very helpful. One member of our family accidentally left his wallet in the restaurant. An hour later, a waitress arrived at our door with the wallet, with all the cash and credit cards intact.

We would recommend this villa to anyone looking for a large villa for a family vacation or reunion.

Lovely place with plenty of down time.

  • 4 of 5

The condo is four stories if you count the open deck area on the roof top... so that needs to be understood when booking this property. The property is clean... not spotless, but overall in great condition for a fun stay. We never saw anyone to take our $300 deposit nor to get a code for the front door, so I'm not sure how that is suppose to work with others. It was unlocked when we arrived, we couldn't lock up when we left and the maids took over when we checked out. The complex itself is very safe, quiet, spotless, full of fun pools, jacuzzis, restaurant, and wonderful help. The spa treatments are wonderful, but plan on having one on the deck as the spa is under renovation. It was a beautiful experience. This resort is located outside populated areas and works great if that is what you want as your vacation. About a 40 minute drive to Sayulita... Punta Mita... and an hour to old town Puerto Vallarta. Buses run both ways. There is not much immediately around the resort... but the fish market is great for a home cooked meal. Overall, a wonderful stay with a few quirks.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words and I am delighted you enjoyed your stay. I am surprised you felt it was not near populated areas as the resort is very close to the cities of La Cruz and Bucerias which are filled with restaurants and bars. By car per google maps it is 20-25 minutes to Punta Mita and Sayulita and 35 minutes to old town Puerto Vallarta by car or taxi. You are correct that the public bus that stops outside the resort gates take longer but it is nice that you had the local experience which is available right outside the gates. No doubt this is a much more relax stay which is perfect for family and friend getaway verse a traditional large bustling resort hotel. In fact right in our headline we state: "Perfect for Families." I share with renters if are looking for a non-stop action/party that this is not the right place for that type of get-away. I hope you will return again and this next time we are able to earn a five start rating from you. Rick

Very Beautiful location and very uncrowded and quiet

  • 4 of 5

We were upgraded to #4132151 which is larger, unit #48 Vallarta Gardens. Shared Pool right outside the back patio but screened by shrubs.

Three bedrooms and an open area upstairs with a studio couch/bed and tv. Lots of room with huge MBedroom upstairs, and Double bdrm, downstairs is a small Kingsize bdrm. All have their own walk-in shower and bathrooms.

Restaurant is excellant. Had several breakfasts and a beachside dinner. Prices very reasonable. Used taxi from airport (expensive) and for shopping at Megafoods (cheap). Bought our weeks supplies. Bought a 10 liter container of pure water. Used it all. Bought little stuff up at the OXXO market. Our first night’s dinner was at Taco Jr. Really good and cheap. Only sodas to drink.

Sunday is a quaint local’s market down at the La Cruz Marina.

All-in-all we enjoyed our stay. Make sure Rick helps by giving you instructions on how to get Fernando to come and get things up and running. By-the-way wifi is good.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay and the area around. I am delighted you found the resort offerings to your liking and reasonable.There is much to see and do and it sounds like my suggested restaurants, shopping and activity tips came in handy. No doubt there are less expensive way to get from the airport than by the union taxis including some of the better priced services I mention in my 60 day welcome packet. Hope to see you back soon.

Beautiful house within an extraordinary Resort

  • 5 of 5

The Villa exceeded our expectations. It is a beautiful house very well decorated (great taste!), really cozy and furnished with every thing you may need to enjoy and feel at home. It has a great deck with a gas Grill and a roof garden with a Bar!!. All the rooms have conditioning air. One of the pools is some steps away (practically in front of the Villa) and the beach is very close, it is actually a private beach. Also there is a very nice restaurant within the Resort and SPA services are available. the views are beautiful same as the Gardens. Near the Resort is La Cruz de Huancaxtle town and there you can find at least three good restaurants. Also there is a Chredraui and Mega stores where you can find all the groceries you may need for your stay. The owner answered all our queries in a promptly manner and we received a great service from Fernando and Verónica (the service lady) The Resort has great service and it has 24hours security. Very close to the Resort are Bucerías ans Sayulita towns.

We will go back for sure and we have already recommended the Villa to our friends and family.

Just a short 10 min walk to La Cruz and the new Marine this is the perfect location to get away from it all, but be close enough to not only La Cruz but Bucerias and Puerto Vallarta that you can get out and experience it all. And just 20 minutes from the airport.
