The chic Hacienda-style ambiance, the masterful views of Banderas Bay from every room, the soul-cleansing massages of the European-style Tatewari Spa, and the multitude of delicious dining options make this the choice for a luxurious vacation. 

The superb staff at this hotel offers indulgent service, in-suite amenities and a strong commitment to making your stay as memorable as possible. The seclusion factor is high, the charm is off the charts and the sweeping vistas are so transformative, you might want to book a few extra days. 

There are a plethora of restaurant choices, where you'll find everything from refined cuisine to fresh pizzas direct from wood-burning ovens. Pause for a midday meal at La Parilla, a casual poolside spot with two swim-up bars and a shaded terrace. Indulge on Mexican favorites and wraps, gourmet burgers, sandwiches, and salads.

The Tatewari Spa imbibes this concept and offers spiritual balance produced by peace, tranquility, and meditation. Come and experience complete tranquility and renewals of the mind, body, and spirit. 

Each of the one, two, and three bedroom units is stylishly decorated with marble floors, granite countertops, a whirlpool tub, walk-in shower, walk-in closet, and spacious balcony with wet bar.

    Frequent Guest

    We have been coming to Villa La Estancia for over 15 years, and at least 30 times. We have come with our family of six and by ourselves many times and always have a remarkable time. From the time you are greeted at the front door. By Gerardo “Jerry” and Raul to having a drink at La Casona Bar with Gabriel then lounging pool side, the service continues with Pool Concierge Esbai and servers Ernesto, Jose, Josue, and Ramon. The service is always outstanding and we always leave feeling like we were treated beyond expectations. Villa La Estancia continues to remain the place to stay when we travel south of the border...

Employees like “Freddy” are the one that want you come back again and again, Thank you.

    trip with teen kids

    I lover this resort. It was beautiful and the food was outstanding for an all inclusive. PRO: Carlos Christian that worked by the pool always found my family of 5 chairs together with shade!! He hustled!! Las Casona Restaurant: Melissa (at breakfast) and Edger (at dinner) made every experience at the restaurant special and full of fun. They both showed excellent knowledge of menu and food. The girls at the spa were amazing. When we showed up and received a hand and arm massage complementary.....that was the greatest way to start a vacation!!! CON: *The restaurant at the poolside closed at 6:00 (they food/drinks were wonderful). This is too early. If you want a cocktail between 6-7:30 you have to walk to the sister property. Room service doesn't even deliver cocktails. They only deliver wine/beer. *We got tricked into the "Time Share sells pitch". Since we are a family of 5 the discount we received off excursion ticket prices added up to saving $349 dollars. However, that being said this was a brutal 2 hours of pressure sells. If you have a smaller party it might not bar worth your time.
