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 resort was pleasantly appealing. The decor, room and grounds were impeccably kept. The staff was very helpful. Remember to decline the resort copying your passport & electronic signature. The food wasn't worth the pay for non-inclusive but I would definitely return. We traveled out for our meals. The layout of the two bedroom fit the needs of our trip. The balcony had an amazing view of the ocean.

This is second stay at this resort. Was just as fab as remembered. The rooms and grounds are beautiful, food is good and service is the best. Alfredo and Luis on the beach were great, remembered anything we forgot and were super friendly and efficient. The lobby guys, Omar, Raul and Jerry were so helpful with any requests. These gentlemen are the best! There were 12 in our group and they helped us keep track of one another. I don’t know how they do it with the sheer number of guests. A most pleasant and comfortable experience.

My wife and I took our fifth trip back to Villa la Estancia in Nuevo Vallarta and it was absolute perfection, as always. It is the perfect getaway for pure, tranquil R&R and it remains our favorite resort to visit (our home away from home). Note that the sister property, Flamingos Del Palmar, is more geared toward activities and a livelier environment (aka games, kids and scheduled activities such as beach volleyball, water aerobics, etc.). You are free to visit the other resort and its restaurants while staying at Villa la Estancia if you want more activity, but nothing beats the pool set up right next to the crashing waves of the beach on Banderas Bay – it is one beautiful setting. The food at La Casona has always been good, but now has been revamped with a broader menu with some superb selections. My joke is that you can close your eyes and point to something on the menu and you will not be displeased, everything is so good. The staff goes above and beyond and treats us like family every single time and quite frankly, they are the biggest reason we return. The resort is amazing, but their standout service is incredible. My list of shout-outs to the excellent staff by department is as follows but is by no means comprehensive: Enzo, Ernesto, Cinthia, Fernando, Jose, Isabel, Alfredo (La Casona – breakfast crew), Gabriella, Raul, Ricardo, Oscar, Nicolas, Alfonso, Angel (pool staff), Andres, Raul (bell men), Sandra (housekeeping), Nicte, Hernando, Miguel, Roger (La Casona – evening crew). The collective service of all these aforementioned people was simply stellar and made our stay so special. Estaban (concierge) was incredibly helpful in checking us in and making sure everything was to our liking. I received a deep-tissue massage at the Tattewari Spa from Valcory and it was just about the best massage I’ve ever had with perfect pressure – if you are able to, definitely book Valcory for a massage. Lastly, Fidel and Javier (chief butler/guest relations managers) were there for our every need and made us feel like royalty. On one instance, Fidel called every day to find out if turtles had been hatched for the turtle release for my wife’s grandson to see and we were able to attend a release during our stay because of his efforts, and releases can be a rare thing to catch while you’re there. We’ve done many things on previous stays (Rhythms of the Night, a tour of San Sebastian, a jungle tour, a city tour of Puerto Vallarta, and others) and while this trip was mostly for relaxation, they’ve provided great service in helping setting us up with those events as well in the past. The resort is also about a 20 minute walk south of Bucerias, a very fun shopping town, about a 30 minute drive from Sayulita (think a bohemian shopping and surfing town) and about 30 minutes away from Puerto Vallarta itself (depending on traffic), so there is no shortage of places to go and things to do. We’ve enjoyed travelling here at all times of the year and the weather is always beautiful. Even though September may be the rainy season, it was perhaps our favorite time – the rain mostly comes at night and the thunderstorms over the bay at night are incredible. We’ve visited in early June, September, December and May to VLE and other times of the year to other destinations in the Puerto Vallarta area, but Villa la Estancia outranks all other places for us. The resort is breathtaking, but the people and the service there are what keeps us coming back to our home away from home.

This was our first stay at Villa La Estancia, we have been staying next door at the Villa del Palmar Flamingos the past few years. We've been intrigued by the appearance of the Estancia, it seemed to be private, peaceful & quiet; so we gave it a try & were not disappointed at all! This property was all we had hoped it would be, almost like our own private oasis. No timeshare nonsense, just respectful, pleasant staff who wanted to make our visit memorable. Our thanks to "Juliana" who went over & above to offer us an excellent customer service experience!. Juliana was helpful, pleasant & always had a smile, she was sweet to talk with & gave us good information. It's obvious Juliana cares about the guests & enjoys her job! Thank you for creating a wonderful experience for our little get away, we will be back for sure!!

The staff is friendly from the moment you arrive. The property is easy to navigate and has a homey feel. Everything is close to the beach! The beach is one of the best. Very close to Bucerías on the North end of town. Some of the units (most owned by individuals and can be rented on vrbo) are starting to see some wear and tear and can use some updating. All in all a great spot for the family
