Upscale Beautiful Hotel for Quiet Relaxing Pampered Vacation

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 .

Exceptional care and service

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

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.

Good vacation

Everything was very good and as advertised. There were no real surprises or "gotchas" between the pictures and write-up's compared to reality like you get at some other resorts. Suites were large and wonderful. Best We've seen in Mexico. Grounds were clean and pretty. Food was very good; pool was warm and large, swim up bar was nice and staff overall was helpful and friendly. Only negatives: Service in restaurant is terribly slow. Every dinner took over 2 hours (too long with kids)! There is a 15% service charge for every room service dining (even with "all-inclusive) which was not clearly explained. Got to love unlimited room service, though!!! Parent note: Aside from the pool and beach, there are not a ton of things for young kids to do.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Swim with Dolphins was very cool. Can't get anything like the "Royal Swim" experience (the dolphins push you up into the air) in the US.

Great place for families or couples.

The condos were wonderful as were all the facilities. The food was lacking but maybe that is just Mexico. I would recommend Villa La Estancia to anyone. I would not do the all inclusive food package. Wonderful staff,very friendly.

Wonderful - stay away from Time share

Villa La Estanica is an amazing Resort and Spa. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for some peace and quiet. It is about 30 minutes from downtown Puerto Vallarta and a walking distance to Bucerias. We loved our stay there our only regret was participating in the Timeshare program to get the discount. The 10% off was not worth the 3hours of vacation time. They tell you it only takes an hour, but it takes longer - DON'T DO IT for any deal.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a Mega supermarket really close. Villa La Estancia has full kitchens and it is really nice to have snacks and some food in the room. You can walk there and take a cab back with groceries. Big money saver.
