I want to start by saying that the views in this house is everything! You can literally stare all day and night out in the horizon. The house is beautiful, nice decor and very big. The staff are wonderful as well. Mercedes was quick to respond to my email for any questions that I had. The other staff members and the gardener were very nice and helpful too.

For our 50th anniversary, we took our family (6 adults and 5 kids

total) to Puerto Vallarta and stayed here. It was fabulous - like

being in Paradise! We had such a wonderful time there! We

enjoyed the pool, the accommodations, the people on staff, the

beautiful flowers and lush greenery, the unique layout of the

villa, the majestic location on the mountain and the overall beauty

in a land so different from home in the USA. We had 4 of the

5 children stay in the bedroom with the twin beds by using

air mattresses. They had lots of fun, but I would recommend this

property for 8 people because that is all that the beds can

accommodate. We hired the chef for 2 dinner meals. There was an

abundance of food, and it was excellent. We had no difficulty in

getting transportation, but it was rather pricey. Walking down the

mountain to go to the beach was a task in itself because of the

cobblestone road. The younger people walked down twice but

none of them made the trek back up the steep hill. My husband

and I chose to hire vehicles. The villa had games and jigsaw

puzzles which kept us busy after our daily adventures. Sitting on

the balcony at night and watching the sun go down was amazing.

We're so glad that we decided on this property as it was a

gorgeous place for all of us to be together under one roof.

Such A Lovely Place

  • 5 of 5

The house is more beautiful than the pictures, if you can imagine! We had three families here for 7 days and loved every bit. There were so many little spaces, that we never felt on top of each other. The staff, Luis and Lucero were so sweet, as well. I would highly recommend this house.

Stunning Siete Soles

  • 5 of 5

This house is incredibly beautiful but the views from every angle make this property breathtaking!

I was there for a week with my entire family (ten total including my two small children) and it was paradise every day. The area, the weather, the view and the incredible service by Mercedes' team made this vacation perfect. Her chef's dishes were fresh and delicious. We hired her for breakfast and dinner and that really made our vacation easy. We ate before leaving the house and grabbed a snack while at the beach or shopping and then returned for diner and then bed! It was easy, stress free and economical.

I will add that this house has a lot of stairs so if that's an issue for you, this house might not make sense for you. We rented a few stairgates from a local baby gear rental company to help keep our toddler safe.

Breathtaking Views

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our stay at Siete Soles. The 4 well appointed bedrooms and waterfall swimming pool was just perfect. The palapa outside made for perfect outdoor dining. The staff was very nice and helpful. If we wanted to go into old town, it was a short 20 minute ride by taxi, uber or the bus stops just outside the gate and cost just 8 pesos. If you are looking for a luxury retreat with friends or family. I'd recommend this Villa.

Memorable Mexican Vacation

  • 5 of 5

A group of us came to Mexico and stayed at this amazing villa. All levels have their own private outdoor patio with all stunning views. You can watch sunsets from every terrace. We could even see whales a couple times. The maid service is great and we opted to take the chef service to prepare breakfast and dinners for several days. The location is excellent! You can use Uber for $5-$8 USD to get into the heart of PV or the bus comes for 8 pesos! It’s fast, easy as bus stop is at entrance to villa, and super cheap. Immediately adjacent to this villa is Mismaloya Beach. Everything you would want is right there. There are also many local restaurants on the water that serve great food and drinks. We got full body deep tissue massage for one hour for $25 USD. Everyone in the group had plenty to do the entire week and no one was bored.
