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!

Our Favorite Place to Stay but watch out for the spa prices.

We love this resort. We have come back many times and know the staff very well. The service is impeccable and the same people are there year after year to welcome you back home. While the Spa and Gym are beautiful, their prices are through the roof. Expect to spend nearly $100 for a mani or pedi after tip and $300 for a massage. They like to say you have use of the spa after or before and hence the high cost. But I want to tell you there are many wonderful hair salons, nail spas and massage spas nearby in Bucerias that are a fraction of the cost. Just look up Bucerias and you will find them. Then plan to stay there for lunch or dinner. Wonderful fine restaurants for much less than anywhere else in the Bay. We loved it so much that we bought a place on the water in Bucerias.

Terrific Family Destination

Our family of 4 (2 boys 11, 12) returned to La Estancia for another holiday trip. This resort has been a home away from home for us. The property is modern and luxurious. The boys love to boogie board on the beach. The food is great. But, the staff is especially great. From the moment you arrive Oma, Gerry, & Raul take great care of you. Then, Nicolas, Ramon will care for you at the pool. And, Roger, Freddy, Josue, Cinithia, Jennifer and many others will provide great service at dinner. Keep it up!

Fourth trip to beautiful Villa La Estancia
MelandCindy,
Thu Nov 29 14:30:50 EST 2018
This is our fourth time to the beautiful Villa La Estancia Resort. As always we were greeted by friendly faces. Gerry and Raul were there to take care of our luggage and offered us ice cold bottles of water. At check in we met Erik a very pleasant gentleman who made us feel at home. We could not wait to get to the pool. On our first day at the pool we met Esbai and Mario. Each day Esbai would make sure our lounge chairs were set up with towels and our umbrellas were placed just right all day long. Each day he would ask us if everything was ok and continued to impress us. One very hot day, without us asking anyone, we met Antonio who brought everyone in our area a fresh cold face cloth which was a big hit. Many days he would drop by and ask us how we were doing and if he could get us anything. We cannot say enough about “the pool bar guys”. Ramon, Orlando, Edwardeo and Nicolas were all unbelievable. Since our last visit Lucio and Carlos had been promoted to Bartenders. All the guys were very personable; all had great attitudes and insured we had everything we wanted. Their whole mission was to keep us happy. It was my understanding a few of them were only there for a short time. In our books they were all “seasoned individuals” and we could not ask for anything more. We spent each day relaxing around the pool/hot tubs and they really made our vacation very enjoyable. Dominica, Abraham and their staff at the pool restaurant worked very hard in the heat behind the grill. They made the best tasting lunches and the food selection was more than we could ask for. The hamburgers/fries were fantastic (to die for) and each day we had to have the fresh guacamole, salsa and chips which was one of our favorites. The main restaurant at Villa La Estancia is called “La Casona” where my wife and I experienced many enjoyable evenings. The food was superb, the steaks, rack of lamb and the salmon were all done exactly the way we asked for it. When the restaurant has staff like Migel and Roger who have been there for nine years the service is remarkable. Add Edgar with his great personality and you will definitely have a night to remember. It is my understanding that Castro and Iram are the supervisors of all these individuals and I must say they worked hard to help out the guys when they needed it and always asked us if we needed anything when making the rounds between the hotel and the pool. All these people that I mentioned worked so hard and are a big part of why we will be back again in the near future. In closing I would like to thank Gerry who gave us a hand with our suitcases/bags and getting the taxi for us back to the airport. We love the Villa La Estancia Resort and the people working there. We are looking forward to our next trip. Kindest Regards Mel and Cindy Klein
