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!

This is such a beautiful property. Our family and friends had so much fun durIng our stay. Huge thanks to Rodrigo and his crew at the poolside bar and restaurant-Luis, Hector, Milton, Carlos, Orlando, Nicolas, and Alfredo. Esbai was so kind and attentive helping set us up at the beach and around the pool. The on-site restaurant was lovely as well and the staff was again, wonderful. Thanks you Miguel, Rogelio, Angel, and Gabriel. All staff were amazing and I’m sorry to forget any names. Clearly I would recommend staying here:)

Amazing Vacation Experience

Our recent trip to Villa La Estancia ended up being an incredible family experience. The beaches are clean and beautiful and the people are very friendly. Each day began with Esbai Vazquez setting us up on the beach. It was nice to be dialed in every day. We also spent a lot of time in the pool. The guys at the pool/bar were also great. Rodrigo, Hector, Alfredo, Carlos, Luis, Niko, Milton, Raul and Orlando. All of these people and others were so kind and accommodating to my family. We will be back.

Could’ve been a disaster, but oh no.....STILL MY FAVORITE PLACE ON EARTH

Returning to VLE for our 8th trip in asmany years was scheduled to be the highlight of our summer. Unfortunately, the jack hammering that woke me with a start on our first morning in paradise did not bode well as far as reassuring me that our vacay would be quiet and relaxing. After being informed that the work taking place was necessary to repair leaks in the penthouse balconies, and would continue through our weeks sojourn, I was about ready to call the trip a flop. It seemed that even the smiles of our dear friends like Carlos, Hector, Raul, and Milton at Parilla (poolside restaurant), Fidel and Esbai, the pool butlers, and Miguel, Rogelio, Angel and Gabriel at Casona (diiner/steak house) were not enough to soothe my frazzled nerves. It was only when on our 3rd evening at VLE arrived and I was trying to make it through dinner, wondering what to order that wouldn’t upset my now aching stomach (rattled nerves cause me all sorts of digestive issues) that Miguel, our steadfast and kind hearted waiter, noticed my distress and arrived at our table with a special drink made of soda and angustora bitters and a bowl of broth with petite vegetables, that my trip turned the corner. From that moment on I was comforted and cared for in a way that only the staff at VLE seem capable of. The soda tonics continued to flow, my tummy ache eased and for the next few days I was pampered like a close family member or friend would be. The accommodations at VLE are amazing (see my previous reviews) the people are one of a kind (again, see last review) but this time I would like to say a tremendous thanks to the people behind the scenes, who took it upon themselves to make sure that my family would continue to look forward to our return trips to Nuevo Vallarta and VLE. I’m talking about the resort manager Laura Gonzales and Top Dog Ruben Avila, who made it possible for us to leave Mexico with the knowledge that they would always welcome us back and we’re sad that our experience was negatively impacted by the noise and disruption. Without going into detail, I want to say that the management team went above and beyond to make it up to us. I a mom home now, missing the beach, missing my friends, and even missing the sound of the jackhammers, because in all honesty, I’d rather be at VLE with the sound of jackhammers in the background, than anywhere else on earth. Thank you Miguel, Angel, Rogelio, Gabriel, Carlos, Esbai, Hector, Milton, Raul, Fide, Laura and especially Ruben, for making our home away from home a place we will look forward to seeing again (hopefully under a new, quiet roof) next year.

Great resort!

We stayed for a week at Villa La Estancia. I chose this resort because of the big suites which we need since we have 2 teenagers. The size of our 2 bedroom suite didn't disappoint, the balcony was huge and we had an ocean view. We opted for the all inclusive plan. The pool was great, very clean, they have a wonderful pool buttler Esbai Vasquez who goes out of his way to make sure your chairs are set up the way you need them, the service in the pool area was okay--the best waiter was Ramon, the food was very good, I highly recommend the chilaquiles (my favorite). For dinner we always went to La Casona, great appetizers and steaks. Service can be a little slow when they are busy. The beach is wonderful, we spent a lot of time in the ocean. I would defintely return to this resort on my next trip to Riviera Nayarit
