Third time @ La Estancia
BRADLEY B.
Apr 20 2016
This is the best place for the money, with great staff and superior rooms. The beach is fantastic, with far fewer vendors than in PV proper. No heavy push to see a time share presentation. There is a new GM, but I couldn't tell any difference in the service.

Our First Apple Vacation- Villa La Estancia
ROBERT G.
Feb 20 2014
We have stayed at many beautiful and luxurious resorts, but Villa La Estancia exceeded all expectations. The meticulous attention to every detail was incredible. The property is immaculate. The landscaping is gorgeous. The pool is clean, comfortable and inviting. Pool chairs and beach chairs are comfortable and abundant. Felix, at the pool makes sure that you are comfortable and has his staff adjusting umbrellas and providing towels to keep you pampered. He notices if you return from the pool and makes sure you have a towel rolled at the head of your chaise lounge so that you are comfortable. The spa was delightful and gave a wonderful massage. The food was incredible. Waitstaff was always attentive, but never intrusive. The bellmen, Luis, Leo and Miguel were all fantastic as was Delia the concierge. Maid service was fantastic. The employees seem to anticipate your needs and make certain you are having a wonderful time. Extra touches like 5 minute complimentary massages poolside, a hand massage at check-in, appetizers passed at the pool before lunch and mini "gourmet flavored" popsicles passed in the afternoon add to the special touches. The one bedroom suite we had was spectacular. Spacious and well thought out. The furniture was comfortable and the decorating was dramatic without being over the top. Our chartered flight was on time both ways, great staff and smooth transfers to and from the hotel. I called Apple to upgrade to business class for our ride home and spoke to Chris who arranged to meet my request. We have never taken an Apple vacation before and we plan to do so again in the future. Thank you for making such a fantastic and memorable experience happen for us!

Mr. Avila, My family and friends spent last week at Estancia to celebrate my son's wedding in Bucerias. I have no idea how to articulate my thanks and pure gratitude to the staff at Estancia. First and foremost Micaela was a godsend and my rock during the week. We had over 40 guests arriving and departing on a week that Estancia was 100% booked. Micaela's professionalism and genuine compassion for the guests was evident from the moment we walked through the doors. You would have thought we were her only guests and her only objective was to make it a very special week for us. If I could pack her and bring her home with me I would. Any business would benefit from having a Micaela, she truly is a wonderful wonderful person and an asset to Estancia. Cynthia (restaurant manager) , Jerry, Gil, (Bellmen) and Elyse (front desk) all seemed like friends by the end of our stay and I was sad to leave them after 9 days. The housekeepers Ericka and Felix went above and beyond the entire week and worked so hard to make things unique and clean. Felix wound hum or sing while cleaning the room. Her voice brings tears to your eyes. We will return just to see all of the great staff again. The wedding at Martoca Beach Gardens was simply beautiful but our stay at Estancia was just as memorable. My husband, as well as several of our guests, work for the airline industry and we have traveled extensively both in and out of the US. We all agree hands down that Estancia was the absolute best and kindest service we have ever had. When I made reservations directly through Villa Group with Fernando Corona he was very patient in explaining all Estancia had to offer and assured me I would not regret choosing Estancia for wedding lodging. He was spot on and like those mentioned above a superstar. If there is a better way to acknowledge and thank the staff please let me know. I can never repay Micaela and the rest of the staff for the memories and kindness shown to my family and our guests during the wedding week.

Great Resort!

Vacation With Family and Friends

Villa La Estancia was almost perfect for our family and the other four families who were with us (each family had their own unit). The beach was great and not very crowded. The pool was also very nice. La Estancia is not as large as some of the other resorts and more on the quieter side. For example, the pool closes at 8:00 or 9:00, no nightclubs, etc. But, you have access to Flamingos next door for more restaurants, volleyball, complimentary boogie boards, kayaks, paddle boards, etc. This was a great combination for us. I would agree with other reviewers, that restaurant and food options are somewhat limited at the resort. We did not purchase an all-inclusive option either. We rented a car and ate dinner every night in Bucerias, La Cruz or PV. No worries if you don’t want to drive. Taxis are safe and affordable, and you should visit Bucerias at least once. Lots of great restaurants and interesting shops. All of the staff members at Villa La Estancia were extremely friendly and helpful. We were very appreciative of the bell men, Gerardo (Gerry), Enrique and Raul. They were very helpful and always had our car ready for us. We stayed in unit 1302 A/B (rented through VRBO, Brad and Joey are owners). The unit was very good. If we visit the PV/Nuevo Vallarta area again, we will definitely be back to Villa La Estancia.

Fancy resort, but we had to go next door to Flamingos for most things

I booked this trip through Costco Travel, which usually is a good experience. The check in process is extremely slow. They only had two reception desks, not the usual counter with a few people behind it. Villa La Estancia has only one restaurant, La Casona, which is an expensive steak restaurant (it does serve breakfast). We had to go next door to Flamingos for all other restaurants, to exchange money, and to check out kayaks/boogie boards/paddleboards. Since there are so few restaurants on site, we had a difficult time making reservations. Luckily, the towns of Bucerias and Nueva Vallarta are an inexpensive taxi ride away and have numerous good restaurants! The rooms were clean and had nice amenities. I think it would be nice if they would provide a roll of paper towels, dish soap, dishwasher soap, and laundry soap. The housekeeping was excellent and provided a turndown service. Note that the concierge service also encourages you to participate in the time share presentation and so I don't know how helpful they are. I encourage you to do your own research.

Very good!
