We loved this house! The views are like no other. The pictures are very accurate but more amazing in person. The owner is very helpful in planning and giving info on activities and restaurants. However, there is no need to leave the house! The staff is kind and warm and made us feel like we were kings. They took care of all our needs. We ate incredible meals and enjoyed everything. An amazing house. A short walk to the beach on the premises was convenient. The manager of the proper is also so helpful. Truly paradise!! A unique property and the open floor plan overlooking the pool and ocean is where you will spend all of your time. It is hard to leave! Never had such a unique vacation before. The adults and the kids equally enjoyed this house.

La Princesa is our destination of choice for a relaxing break from the day to day of it all. We recently returned from our third visit to the villa February 2016. Pam, the owner, is amazing and very easy to work with. Although I have never met Pam in person, I count her my friend. The view is unbelievable, it hurts to leave. Huge open living area with infinity pool and a 270 degree view! Everything is taken care of for you. Ofelia is an amazing chef with food and drink that you will certainly miss when you get home. We always let her select the menu because we love real Mexican food. Breakfast, lunch, dinner snacks, etc. just let her know the schedule. The food and drink bill for the week was shockingly low for the quality and quantity involved with our party of four. The worst meal was the one night we decided to dine out to reward Ofelia for her stellar work! If you are interested in a great Suburban and driver for the week, have Pam arrange Arturo. His local knowledge, 24/7 availability and friendly attitude makes him a must for excursions you wouldn’t normally experience. If you play golf, there are a couple of great tracks in the area. El Tamarindo, an hour north, on a private jungle reserve with 5-6 holes on the ocean, a real bucket list course. The villa is in an amazing gated community complete with resident monkeys. We have always felt safe both in Manzanillo, Colima and at La Princesa. I am jealous of all that will visit between now and our next visit-----ENJOY!

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about how beautiful this place is, and how lovely our time spent there was. My family (husband, 3 children, grandparents) stayed here for a week and were very comfortable, with every wish being taken care of by the excellent staff. The views off the bedrooms and main living area are stunning, and there was always a gentle ocean breeze. Sunsets are amazing, enjoy the view from the beautiful infinity pool. The estate also has an amazing private beach, with it's own set of showers and pools, as well as a safe, inlet sand beach. We did a day trip to see a little town near an active volcano, and we also enjoyed the little restaurants around Manzanillo. But I agree with another reviewer, there is really no need to ever leave this beautiful home! We loved every minute and wished we could have stayed longer. Definitely hope to go back.

A royal vacation at Castillo La Princesa

  • 5 of 5

My family (3 adult couples) rented Castillo La Princesa in February, 2015. The villa was absolutely beautiful - it exceeded our expectations! One of the key reasons I selected La Princesa is that it offers 3 beautiful master bedroooms - which makes it great for 3 couples. The views of the harbor/Manzanillo and the open water were stunning. And the location is one of the best in La Punta… as we had sunshine from sunrise to sunset.

La Punta itself is a wonderful community - a perfect and safe location for a Mexican vacation.

The house staff, especially Ofelia and Jasmine, were both delightful and they made us feel most welcome. Ofelia’s cooking was fantastic and her willingness to satisfy the various food preferences of my family was appreciated.

The Owner was extremely helpful in providing various information and in being so caring. Dealing with her was a pleasure. While we never met, I felt as if the Owner was a long time family friend. Her suggestion to rent a car service was also very good advice. This service enabled us to visit sites, beaches, towns etc. that made our vacation in the Manzanillo area even more special.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay in Paradise! It is very exciting that your daughter got engaged during her stay here. Just wanted to mention that there is also a lovely fourth bedroom with bathroom en suite with a large private terrace for a fourth couple or additional family members. La Princesa will welcome you back anytime!

Amazing Place and Location!

  • 5 of 5

In March 2011 my wife and I and three other couples stayed in The Castle of the Princess for almost a week. The Castle is the finest house I have ever stayed in for a vacation, and the house staff prepared fantastic authentic Mexican cuisine whenever we wanted. The house manager brought us whatever we needed at the house, and transported us around the town of Manzanillo during the week. The views were spectacular at the Castle from almost every vantage point, and the town of Manzanillo is a rising star as a Mexico destination location. Our group used the local tennis courts which were great, and the local beach is nearby and very beautiful. All of the rooms were very nice and the main living and dining room area and the swimming pool were breathtaking. I highly recommend the Castle and we are all considering a return visit sometime in the near future.

My husband and I certainly felt like royalty during our recent stay at the Castillo de la Princesa (Castle of the Princess). The house was very grand, immaculately maintained and offered breathtaking views of the ocean. Nestled in the hills above the ocean, the architecture of La Princesa and its scenic surroundings were in such harmony it was difficult to say where one ended and the other began. La Punta, the gated community in which La Princesa was located, offered tennis, a private beach with its own coral reef and security that made us feel completely at ease. Staying at La Princesa, we also had access to a house manager who educated us on the area, planned our day excursions, and made our restaurant reservations. Saving the best for last, we cannot over-praise the delicious, authentic Mexican cuisine prepared for each and every meal by the house cooking staff. It certainly exceeded our expectations, as did the staff’s friendly and professional service. A stay at La Princesa is pure decadence and, for us, it was a vacation that we will always remember.
