The best luxury villa with a view and vacation experience in PV
My husband and I spent a week in this villa with four of our friends to celebrate our 10 year anniversary, and it was everything we could possibly have wanted for our once-in-a-lifetime experience and more. It is high up on a hill overlooking the beach and the city, which gave us not only a spectacular view but also gave us some privacy and separation from the bustle of the city. But, it's only a short walk down the hill (maybe 10 minutes if you use the short-cut paths!) to the city and the beach.
The house is dramatic and stunning. The front doors are almost like the doors to a cathedral, opening onto an open-air foyer with trees and fountains. Beyond that you enter a homey but spacious living room that looks out onto a breathtaking view of the city, beach and ocean. Floor-to-ceiling glass throughout the house gives the entire place a grand and spacious feel. And of course I have to mention: there is a 90-year-old palm tree growing in the open-air shower in the Master Bedroom.
Richard, one of the owners, is incredibly friendly: he greeted us with margaritas when we arrived, and checked on us periodically to make sure we had everything we needed. His wife, Chef Tina, is the other owner and prepared amazing meals for us throughout our stay: every meal was different, and fantastically prepared. The staff was meticulous and unobtrusive, and were very accommodating and responsive whenever we had a request or a question.
One night there was a storm that blew out the pilot light for the hot water heater, and within moments of us notifying the staff they had the hot water heater fixed and running again.
All in all, our week here made us feel like royalty. The environment truly felt like we were living in our own private resort, and the staff pampered us without being intrusive. It was the perfect vacation experience with friends, the perfect anniversary experience with my husband, and we would recommend it to anyone who wants to spend their visit to Puerto Vallarta in luxury.
Thanks so much for the review. Your group was great and we are glad you enjoyed the hospitality that our staff tries so hard to provide. We would enjoy seeing your group again in the future and chef Tina will come up with some special treats for you.
Kind regards, Richard
Amazing property - this place has it all!
Views, pool, comfortable luxury, the food - absolutely incredible! This was our second visit to Villa Santa Fe - we got married here 3 years ago - this time we were celebrating a 50th Birthday! From the warm welcome at our arrival to the fond farewells at our departure, it was a week to remember. Chef Tina did it again and went above and beyond to ensure that everyone had the best possible experience - her meals are amazing down to every little detail, including the coconut rice served in actual coconuts. Several weeks later and everyone is still talking about the food. We will definitely be back!
Thank you for the review. We were very pleased to see you and your group again. Some of your guests had not been here before and it was fun to see them enjoy the adventure of Chef Tina's meals and dinner parties.
Kind regards, Richard
A beautiful house owned/staffed by a great couple
The spectacular views and amenities are only surpassed by the graciousness and hospitality offered up by both Richard and Tina.
Be ready to dine like a gourmet as Tina’s culinary skills are worthy of any 5 star venue.
Al, Thank you for the review. It was great having Bill & Todd there and bringing new guests that had not been here before. All of you were great and the staff, Tina & I enjoyed all of you.
What an incredible experience from the moment of the booking until we arrived home Richard (owner) and Toni (concierge) made everything so easy. The home is beyond beautiful and the view is incredible. Chef Tina cooks everything to perfection and her assistant Alex is also an incredible Chef. There is nothing that Tina can’t make and just when you think she has out done herself she does it again. Toni took care of booking any activities we wanted to do down to making sure we had transportation to and from each one. We enjoyed the activities but honestly never wanted to leave the house because everything we needed was right there. 5 star service the entire trip. Can’t wait to go back!
Lee ann & Sandy,
Thank you so much for the review and kind words. Your family and friends were great and we look forward to your return in the near future. The staff thanks you also for your generosity. Regards, Richard & Staff
If you are looking to be treated like a celebrity in the lap of luxury, look no further than Villa Santa Fe. While the Villa is spectacular, the hospitality and food is world class. Richard, Tina and the entire team is the very best in the business.
It was a pleasure to have your group again this year.The staff and I thank you for your generosity and kind review.
I mean, wow! We loved this place.
In March 2018, I celebrated my (gasp) 40th birthday with my 9 closest friends at the Villa Santa Fe in Puerto Vallarta. The faces of the guys when they walked through those doors and out onto the patio to see that expansive view for the first time was priceless. This place really does have the best view in PV.
We were greeted by the staff with cocktails and guacamole/salsa (which by the way, is the best f'ing guac and salsa I've ever had, which we requested every night then after) and we were treated like the queens we thought we were all week. #bestgaycationever. I can't say enough great things about the staff. Toni arranged for massages & facials for us the first day and Tina and her staff cooked the most fantastic meals - the food was so good that we only ate out one time. And a extra KUDOS to the staff for making my birthday dinner a memorable and special experience; they went above and beyond. Richard was always prompt, professional and helpful for any request that we had.
My other favorite things about this place:
- The infinity pool was amazing. Perfect water temperature.
- Short walk to the gay beach. Although the driveway is STEEP, be careful.
- Beds were super comfortable.
So if you're thinking about this place for a special vacation, go for it. We loved our stay at Villa Santa Fe and can't wait to come back.
