Why Jordan MacPherson chose Amapas
The Romantic zone in Puerto Vallarta is a true treasure of Mexico, nestled below the plush jungle hillsides with its cobblestone roads and beautiful homes with phenomenal views.

Outstanding Stay! Exceeded Expectations in so man
We had a group of 15 stay at Villa Estrella Mar for my husband's 60th birthday. From the first time I contacted Jordan until the moment we left, everything was superb.
I am a planner and had many questions for Jordan before our arrival. I wanted everything to be perfect for my husband's birthday. Jordan was informative, patient and very generous with her time.
When we arrived at the Villa, all I can say is WOW! The house is absolutely stunning. The main floor with the living room and kitchen is spacious with several different seating areas and a cool breeze blowing through the house. The bedrooms were also gorgeous. The Master suite and Jr. Master Suite are regal and grand. And the four other suites were also beautiful - very grand and spacious in their own right. We stayed in the Master and I can say that I would have been very happy in any of the other 5 rooms. The only one with a different feel is the twin room - quite a bit smaller though still with a balcony overlooking the pool. This would be perfect for kids, or fine for a single person.
The staff really made the stay special. Paco was so helpful, patient and kind. Gibran was wonderful as well and Lupe's meals were delicious. We ate at the Villa every night and morning which is so much nicer for a large group than venturing into a restaurant. The breakfasts were my favorite, especially the french toast. And every meal we had was so delicious.
There were many other staff members around as well who were so gracious - Arturo and others who were quietly cleaning the rooms and doing maintenance of the property, in a very non-obtrusive way. There were even some men taking down some coconuts on a nearby tree for maintenance, and when they were done, the brought the Coconuts to us with a straw to drink the Coconut water.
Another nice touch, just to give you a feel for it, was every night during dinner, they would quietly go into each room, close all the blinds, and turn on the AC, so when you went to your room at night it was cool and ready for a good night's rest.
The pool was heated the the perfect temperature so we could languish in it for hours. We even went swimming at night after dinner. The more adventurous ones in the group walked down to the beach a few steps below and went for long swims over to the pier during the day.
Many in our group were already talking about returning next year. This is an outstanding place for a family reunion or other group gathering.
Absolutely breathtaking villa and awesome staff!
First off, Jordan was extremely helpful and responsive to all my questions about the property before booking. Jordan also helped coordinate transportation and food, prior to our arrival. This coordination took all the planning out of our trip, which made a stress free vacation.
I read several reviews about the villa, before I booked. A number of guests complimented Paco and his staff. After our stay, I can confirm all of the positive comments were legitimate. They truly went above and beyond to meet our needs. Whether that meant delaying breakfast, running to the store for more drinks, or making dinner reservations, they did it all. Plus, the food was better at the villa than in town!
Lastly the location just can't be beat. The views were incredible, the pool was perfect, the beach was great, and downtown was just a 5min drive.
All of my guests were absolutely blown away by everything the property had to offer. This was like any other vacation I have ever booked. It convenience, luxury, and relaxation in one package. I will definitely be making another trip back. Trip of a life time!
What an amazing experience!!
I highly recommend this villa to all! From the moment I became in contact with Jordan she was the most organized and helpful person when booking the house. She helped answer all my questions so when I arrived I knew what to expect.
The house itself doesn’t need much explanation as you can see from the pictures of how beautiful it is. What made the trip was the staff. The meals they cooked were delicious and they helped us out with everything from cabs to buying more beverages for the group.
Can’t say enough about how good my experience was and would recommend to anyone looking to go to puerto Vallarta.
Villa Estrella Mar hit it out of the park.
What can I possibly say to summarize our experience at Estrella Mar that could convey how amazing it was? The location was perfect. The staff was phenomenal. The villa has more to offer than we ever expected. What a perfect trip for our large group. From the moment we first walked onto the veranda during sunset to the last person on the taxi back to the airport, Paco and company were there to help with everything but not in a bothersome way. They perfectly balance being present to run this amazing facility but not intrusive so that you feel like it is just your group. This is a very open classic villa floor plan with many stairs and open windows. Most days there is a breeze that would flow thru most rooms and at night they would close up the rooms and turn on the AC units and the rooms were very comfortable quickly. The walk to old town is super simple along the beach from the locked gates. The semi-private beach gets a few people during the heat of the day but there was always room for us. In the water there was lots of fish, sting rays, and jelly fish and a few of our group had stings, but these were not very painful and within an hour they were gone. A few of the beds were a little more rigid than our group was used to. A few people got no-see-um bites near their ankles and for the life of us we could never find out where they came from. We did see a couple mosquitoes but these were fairly rare, but about half of our group said they got a bite at one time or another. So whether you just want to sit in a chair and spend the day reading a book and listening to the surf or want to have a pool party with some music, Villa Estrella Mar has it covered. We made some great memories that will be with us a long time.
Best. Vacation. Ever.
Staying at Villa Estrella Mar is an experinace that is second to none. The villa itself is stunning and spacious. We stayed there as a group of 17, but never felt like we were on top of each other because the rooms offer so much privacy. However, there are several spaces where we could all sit together as well.
The food was exceptional and Paco & his team was always there when you needed them for a margarita refill or to help you call a taxi. My favorite detail was that when we returned to our room at night, the staff closed up all the shutters at dinner, so our room was nice and cool! Sleeping was a dream & I wanted to take the sheets home with me!
As far as location goes- I have visited Puerto Vallarta several times, and have stayed everywhere from the Resorts in the North to the more inland streets of Old Town. On a map Estrella Mar looked a little “off the trail” but was pleased to find that it is a quick walk into town on the streets, or even via the beach! A $3-ish dollar cab ride will take you into town- Much more convenient than staying in one of the resorts up north.
If you want to go beyond booking accommodations, book a whole experience at Estrella Mar.
Stunningly beautiful, Incredible stay
Villa Estrella Mar is beyond words. From the private location, the isolated beach out front, the friendly staff, to the gorgeous views, everything about this place is amazing.
My wife and I stayed here for half a week as part of a group of friends renting the entire villa for the week. We had the full meal service, and everything was fresh and delicious. The housekeeping was like a team of ninjas - you hardly saw them, but everything was cleaned and spotless before you knew it. During dinner there's a turn down service where they close all the shutters and kick on the AC's so the rooms are ready to sleep in at the end of your day. The pool is great and a welcome freshwater option to lounge your day in or around - it's the perfect temperature for cooling off but not ever becoming cold.
The beach access is great - it's flanked by two rocky points, keeping it quite private and providing some neat tide pools for exploring and snorkeling. Access to town is just a short walk down the road, or the staff will gladly call you a taxi to get you wherever you'd like to go. The rooms are beautifully decorated, open layout, each with a patio for taking in the views. The master suite is awe-inspiring, with the best views in the entire villa, and basically taking up the entire top floor. Since the villa is on a hill, there's two elevators to get you up and down, so stairs are never much of an issue.
I could go on and on about the villa - it really is worth every penny and more.
We highly recommend doing a tequila tasting! We have a company that can come out to the property and do a tasting for 4 or more. Possibility for a tequila tasting with chocolate pairing as well. Be sure to ask us and we can help you get it booked!
