Fantastic getaway

Would recommend Mon, Aug 10, 2015
Everything we expected for our money. We stayed for a week and wished we could have stayed longer. The staff was great at the service at the pool was top notch. Ask for Eduardo and you will be treated like a king.

Beds - hard as a rock

Would recommend Mon, May 25, 2015
Make sure you ask for the extra padding on the beds! They are hard as concrete... other than that, it's a beautiful and great hotel. The restaurant(s) food/staff was great. Felt like I had the place all to myself. Make sure you ask for Oscar and Eduardo at poolside, they'll take great care of you!!

Great family trip

Would recommend Wed, Dec 31, 2014
Beautiful hotel, with great rooms. Stayed in 2 Bedroom Villa (2 BR, 3 BA) for our family of 6, including 4 children. Staff is very good, and attentive. Food is very good, especially for hotels that offer an all-inclusive option. Did all-inclusive. Not sure whether pricing worked out as we have some children which are finicky with food, and do not eat very much, and we have to bring some food on our own. That being said, the food is good, and having ability to order room service 24 hours a day was great, especially for breakfast and having it all delivered in morning. All inclusive also includes ability to get boogie boards, paddle boards, and more. One tip on all-inclusive. Supposedly tips are included, but all staff will continually look for tips regardless. You just need to budget that in to your spending. Don't need to give a typical US tip, but providing additional money either on the bill or in cash becomes very helpful in staff continuing to be attentive. that being said, except for one disappointing dining experience with some staff, our family was very satisfied with the staff. that being said, there are options for food in nearby towns of Bucerias and La Cruz, and you can always go into Nueva Vallarta or further into Puerto Vallarta for activities as well. Beach is just plain amazing. great sand, and wide, and with one side of the hotel having nothing close for a half mile, and other side is the Flamingos sister hotel where you can also use their pool facilities, children's activities, or restaurants.

Dining

Visit Bucerias for food or even a cheap massage

Incredible

Would recommend Fri, Dec 5, 2014
Estancia is our favorite place to stay when traveling to Nuevo Vallarta. The staff is beyond friendly and helpful. From the second you come in the door and they say, "Welcome Home" until you leave, you feel as those they are truly happy to have you there. The resort is incredibly beautiful and well maintained. We've been here several times and it IS our favorite place to come too!

Dining

Dine is Bucerias. It's a short walk on the beach and has fabulous quaint, affordable and excellent restaurants. Our favorites are, Karen's Place, Mark's and Claudio's(for authentic Mexican)!

Upscale Beautiful Hotel for Quiet Relaxing Pampered Vacation

Would recommend Thu, Jul 17, 2014
This was the best of both worlds, upscale beautiful hotel with an attentive staff perfect for a quiet, relaxing pampered vacation. Meanwhile, next door at the adjacent sister hotel, Flamingos, you had all the activities, noise and parties your children might like. While on property, we did not get asked once about time shares, or pressed to go on tours etc. Next door at the Flamingos, every other person was a salesman. The staff was simply amazing. From the front desk, to the pool bar, to the pool attendants; always the right level of care; not too much, never too little. There was only one restaurant but it was very good. Better to have one excellent restaurant than 4 bad ones. You could also get lunch and snacks at the pool bar or go next door for three additional choices, which the kids enjoyed. The spa services were very reasonable and amazing: dry sauna, steam room, rain showers, jacuzzi, cold pool and monsoon shower all with an attendant bringing you cool towels and refreshing flavored ice waters.....and that is just while you are waiting for your spa treatment. Gym was very nice with a good selection of cardio, weights and machines. very clean like the rest of the hotel. Wonderful stay. we will be back .

Loved our stay, quiet and luxurious. One thing that is useful to know, though: Even though tips are included a couple dollars here and there go a long way for next level, over the top service

Exceptional care and service

Would recommend Sun, Jan 12, 2014
Beautiful location at the very end of the hotels in Nuevo Vallarta so more secluded and quiet, rooms are gorgeous and HUGE! Nice beach. The staff went out of their way to make our stay more comfortable and really made it feel like we were "home". There were a couple of minor hiccups but the staff made them disappear with the most sweet attitude. For example our first room was close to the restaurant and was kind of loud, they moved us without any problems. Next, my father accidentally got stuck in the elevator (it broke) for a short period of time. The management was responsive, understanding, and caring and went above and beyond making sure everything was ok without him having to push. Staff remembered our names and were genuinely interested in how we were etc. I took my parents there for a first time trip and they were practically ready to buy a condo! The only down side is being so far away from downtown PV, but that has advantages too. There are only 4 onsite restaurants (with sister property next door), but all are good quality.

Fine experience

Would recommend Mon, Dec 16, 2013
The hotel is very well situated to access beach without the vendors. Grounds are immaculate.The annoyances come when you cannot drive your car into the garage; wait for somebody to pick it up for you, etc. Food was excellent but much too expansive for Mexico.. However, comfort & services are at the 4* level.
