Paradise in PV !

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Richard Toni and Tina and all the amazing staff at Villa Francisco ! We had the best family holiday because of your hospitality and thoughtfulness . A very easy house to relax in and all meals were taken care of efficiently and professionally by Tina Pablo and Alex . Our favourites were the fish and the Vietnamese dinners .. hard to have a favourite really . The Villa is situated just the right distance from the PV hub and beach . Toni organised 4 brilliant massage therapists with short notice and checked on our needs regularly throughout our stay . ( as did Richard ) Thanks for the welcome Margaritas and guacamole and great stories Richard !! Thanks also Richard for helping us out with your local knowledge . We would definitely recommend Villa Francisco !

Villa Francisco - New Years in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Villa Francisco is an amazing experience! We were greeted by the owner and concierge for a brief orientation of the villa, wonderful ammenities and to learn of any special requests during our stay. This beautiful villa has an amazing view of the city!! The exceptional staff was attentive, friendly and responsive to our every need. Tina, chef extraordinaire prepared such amazing dishes, we only chose to have one dinner off property once during our eight night stay!! Choosing one of several villas owned by Mr Francisco is a "no brainer" and will be our only choice when returning to PVR!!

Great stay!

  • 4 of 5

The property was really nice, lots of space, infinity pool, great staff that cooked immediate meals! House is about a 15 minute walk to the beach, and house is at the top of a very steep hill that cabs struggle to get to and difficult to walk up. Rooms have a/c and really nice but living room does not and could get humid at times. Overall house was really nice and accommodated 8 people easily.

Unrivaled Attention To Detail

  • 5 of 5

As a professional event planner, my job is to ask the tough questions so that my guests’ experience matches my pursuit for perfection. Now that my wife and I were planning to host a couples getaway, I needed to ask some tough questions as we couldn’t let our friends down. After each call and email to Richard, I would receive the same message “You need not worry about a thing". While I had read the great reviews, I was a bit suspicious but at some point, I had to submit and hope for the best. My trepidation disappeared immediately upon arriving at Villa Francisco and being greeted by his concierge, Toni. Prior to our arrival, Toni had graciously and efficiently assisted us with our arrival transfers, restaurant recommendations, transportation to our golf outings and stocking the Villa with all our requested favorite foods and beverages. After meeting Toni and taking a quick look inside, we realized it looked every bit as good as the photos. It was immaculate with beautiful furnishings and was exactly as we had hoped as we toured the bedrooms, kitchen, living room and pool area. At that point, we were greeted by Chef Tina, the head chef who chatted with us about our meal selections for the week. We gave her some ideas and she offered up some house specialties and we decided on a plan for the week. After our guests all arrived, we settled into the pool and outdoor cabana for margaritas and appetizers, hosted by Richard. You could tell how proud he was of his Villa and it was a great way for him to meet all our guests before he disappeared for the week so we could be on our own. Dinner that night put all our culinary worries to rest. Chef Tina and her team put together an absolutely amazing meal and little did we know that each and every meal they prepared would be better than the last, all featuring fresh local ingredients artfully prepared to match the finest big city restaurant. Whether it was their handmade ravioli, pre-golf breakfast burritos, surf and turf or our Mexican fiesta, it was just perfect. However, it is worth noting that the highlight of our dining experience was the presentation of a whole 11-pound red snapper cooked to perfection. During our stay, all of our needs were happily accommodated. From runs to the store to washing our laundry, every detail was covered. So, while I will continue to ask all the hard questions, I have already booked a return engagement and Richard can rest easy knowing I won't ask any more questions!

Owner's Response: Rob, Thank you for the review. In all of our time of booking our villas, we have never had such an active group and one that seemed to be having a great time the entire time. We are all very happy(staff included ) to see our guests enjoying the property, food and the activities as your group did. We look forward to hosting your next trip in our other 5 star property, Villa Santa Fe. We promise not to let you down. Regards, Richard & staff
