  • Amazing Family/Friends Retreat

    "We had a group of 14 adults and 2 children for a week at Villa Violeta and were nothing short of impressed with our experience! The staff are incredible: Yesika is a very gracious and friendly host. The staff are friendly, professional, and were ready to help with any request we had. The meals were fresh, homemade, and delicious-as if we were eating at a fancy restaurant every day! They paid close attention to a shellfish allergy in our group. We especially enjoyed the ceviche, guacamole, salsa, tacos, coconut shrimp, fried bananas, and tres leches cake. We enjoyed fresh fruit & fresh squeezed juice with breakfast and lunch, and had a variety of entrees for dinner. We chose to bring some of our own alcohol with us but what we didn't bring, they provided within a few hours of our request. The pool and beach offered great gathering and play spaces for the entire group & we had a bonfire on the beach on our last night which was a perfect ending to a great trip. Like other reviews mention, you do need to be prepared to be well removed from town and patient with the WiFi access because the connection didn't always work, which was great for us! If you are looking for a week to truly connect with your group, disconnect from the internet, and simply relax, this is a great location for you! Yesika arranged for massages and our massage therapist was incredible! There is nothing quite as relaxing as a massage outside with the sound of the waves crashing the in the background! They work with a very professional transportation service to help you get to your excursions but honestly, we didn't go too many places because they provided everything we needed. Some our our group went fishing and were picked up right at the beach on site! Our group was a little uncertain with how much groceries would be at the end of the week, but please do not worry too much about that...the bill for all three of our meals was significantly cheaper than if we had gone out for every meal or took a shuttle in to San Pancho/Sayulita for groceries multiple times during our trip. The quoted average of $25-$50/per person per day is very accurate. The rooms are all unique and open air. They do provide fans but the nights can be a bit warm depending on the season. Not every room is completely private (some share ceilings or spaces) but if your group is comfortable with that, you will not be disappointed with the rest of your experience. We all had an incredible time of relaxation!!"

  • GREAT PROPERTY

    "This is a great property well located just outside of town on a bluff. Fantastic views over the ocean, and a nice great room and pool deck. The Master and 2nd suite are very nice, the 3rd bedroom is pretty dark and claustrophobic, and needs some attention. Ok for kids, but not really for a 3rd couple. As noted by others the driveway is really steep. House is fairly dated (80s style) but pretty clean. Kitchen had some ants, but didn't bother us too much. Housekeepers are nice, don't speak much english. Our biggest complaint is the directions and maps are horrible!! The house is located just after the cobblestone ends and dirt road begins on the way out of town, but if you miss it, you drive on a bumpy dirt road for miles. Owner needs to use a town map (not a hand drawn map) or just say to look for the gate on the left after the cobblestones end, OR just give the address!"

  • Comfort and ease

    "In town casual comfort here suited our group of four adults and a toddler. San Pancho is charming, pretty, friendly, and laid back. Although we rented a car (from Gecko in Bucerias--highly recommend) one would not need one here. This property is walkable to terrific restaurants and nice shops (Hotel Cielo Rojo breakfasts were divine, beachfront La Perla is a great place to park oneself on a lazy day, and we loved rustic Tacos de Amor just down the block, etc--we use TripAdvisor for restaurant reviews and they are spot on). The house is also well equipped with a full kitchen, plenty of beach towels and linens, excellent air conditioning for those really hot days, and a nice pool to cool off in with a box full of plastic toys for the little ones. Excellent owner communications, house manager Eduardo was available when we needed him and housekeeper Marlena kept the place clean and tidy. We loved it and would return in a heartbeat."

  • Delightful getaway to paradise

    "Fabulous tropical getaway in the dead of winter here in the Mid-Atlantic. House exceptionally spacious and well-equipped; staff so incredibly friendly and welcoming. Village combines hip, surf attitude with old world Mexican charm to create a truly unforgettable vacation. Although I admittedly spent much of the time lounging around the pool, the beach is quite easy to access and is very serene. Can't wait to plan my next getaway."
