"Great Staff, horrible beds!"
2 hour extra wait for check it, they at least bought us lunch. Beds were extremely hard you will need to book a massage. Staff around the pool was Amazing!! Look for our Guy Alfonso, hard worker and always there to refill your drinks. Alex helped out with pool location, huge help as well. Hotel was beautiful , food was ok. Great location to just relax.

"Beautiful place, Horrible Service...."
I book this hotel for 3 day to celebrate my 30th birthday at Puerto Vallarta, we arrived there around 5:30 pm, and stand in the lobby for 10 minutes before someone approached us just to tell us to have a seat because there were people ahead of us waiting to check-in. There were 2 employees, a guy and a girl on their desk checking in a family each, they took 20 minutes to complete the checking process. Everyone was sitting and standing all around the lobby it was unclear who was the next on line, we waited in there for 1 hour and 40 minutes before I realize people who arrived after me was been helped, i complained and after 10 more minutes of waiting they started the checking process... the lady helping us kept getting calls on the phone with no multitasking skills had to stop the checking process every time she pick up the phone. After a while she told us there is no room for us and to make for that "little inconvenience" the dinner for that day was going to by a hotel courtesy, they took us to the pool bar where you can mainly order appetizers, if my kids weren't starving I wouldn't eat a thing in there... finally after "dinner" we went back to the lobby and finally get the keys to our room at 9:00pm just on time to sleep. One of my 3 days vacation was gone already... Now about the place, it is beautiful with nice ocean views, lovely pool and Jacuzzi, and besides the sloppy and lazy service from the lobby people, the rest of the personnel is very kind and helpful.

Top notch resort. Perfect for couples looking for a quiet, slow paced vacation as there are no activities in the hotel. All activities are next door at much more crowded hotel. There are only two options for restaurants in the resort but we didn't have anything that we didn't like. Food was great. Other options are neighboring hotel but food was not nearly as good.

"WONDERFUL STAY"
We spent easter break at Villa La Estancia. Property is mainly large suites. We had a one bedroom suite for three of us. A full bathroom with shower in main room was great for our daughter. Main room had full kitchen, dining table and living area, was quite large, master bedroom was also very large, nice bathrooms, tile throughout, double porch. Porch was shared with an adjoining single room, they put up privacy screen, only feature in room we didn't care for. Grounds were extremely well kept. Large Pool and beach area. Never felt crowded. Beach was well kept. There was an outside restaurant by pool, plus waiters came to your chairs for lunch and drinks. Please tip them they work really hard. Main Restaurant was elegant. Food and atmosphere were great. Breakfast was very good. There is a sister hotel next door, not same level, restaurants just weren't up to a good level. Could have used another restaurant on the property. There is no bar but waiters will get you anything. Nice family atmosphere. Very relaxing

"Wonderful beach retreat"
We had a family of 4 for 4 nights. We stayed in the studio for one night and then upgraded to the one bedroom suite for the remainder of the stay. It was worth the extra money to upgrade - especially after we made a trip to the local grocery store (walmart) to stock the fridge with snacks and drinks. The pool was outstanding and the beach was glorious. We saw whales from the beach, swam with dolphins at a water park and had the most fun riding the city buses which were 10% of the cost of cab rides. Restaurant food was excellent but we were surprised by the US prices for food.

"Great hotel, great service, great location!"
Room accommodations were luxurious. The good was great. Wish there were a few more choices. Only 2 restaurants & small menus but going to restaurants next door at Flamingo helped. Really the only complaint was waiting for a bill. Plates were cleared, drinks were empty, they Has to know we were done but no bill. We were on the all inclusive plan which I highly recommend so we usually had to leave the table & they'd bring the bill later to the room! The food they did have was delicious though. We've stayed many places in Mexico and this spoiled us for the others. We'd definitely go back.

"Upscale Beachfront Stay"
We enjoyed a 5 day New Year's trip with 3 generations. Excellent overall, but we would have enjoyed ourselves just a well at another location, perhaps a step down on the luxury scale. The two restaurants were fine, but with the kids and all, not sure if the menu/table service was what we wanted every meal. We've been to lots of all-inclusives in Mexico, and for what we like-- casual, no-hassle relaxation, it was not quite there. We have liked other resorts with many options for adult dining, buffets, kids activities, etc. and will probably not be back to La Estancia, valuewise. That said, all the reviews are spot on - great staff, very nice food, not crowded, good beach. The New Year's Party moved indoors, due to the rain, and it would have been better outside. The band seemed to be volume set for the big outdoors, and we just left as they started their second half - our voices hoarse from shouting to our dining partners. We did take advantage of the Flamingos next door, enjoyed their two restaurants as well. Be sure to double check your reservation -- I thought the whole package was all-inclusive, and it is not - SURPRISE! the two tier system was annoying, as was the bill-signing for EVERYTHING. I was meeting a tour provider to book a tour and wanted a cup of coffee in the lobby while I was waiting and it turned into a minor production as they went and made me a cup of coffee, and then I waited for the bill, etc., etc. I spent much of each day annoyed

"The facility is only second to the staff"
What a great place! We've traveled extensively and in many countries. This is at or near the top of the list. The facilities, the staff and the food were all fantastic. Their slogan is "your home away by the sea" really is true. The staff knows your name, treats you like you're part of the family will do anything to make your visit special. Attention to detail is fanatical, yet not stuffy. Felix the manager for the outside facilities made sure we had any and everything we could ask for in the pool and beach areas. The Restaurant staff was equally as attentive, making dishes the way we wanted them and going overboard to make sure our experience was special

"Lived up to high expectations"
We booked Villa La Estancia based on the stellar reviews on the internet. The resort is actually a luxury residential condominium resort and they are filling the suites with short stay guests until all of the condos are sold. The 1 bedroom suite we were in was spacious and included a separate living room, kitchen, laundry space, 1 3/4 bathrooms. The master bathroom had a large jacuzzi tub and separate shower. Spacious deck with full ocean viewThe housekeeping service was excellent and our primary housekeeper was perhaps the most honest and trustworthy person ever!!! I inadvertently left the safe open with around $5000 pesos, several hundred dollars, credit cards, iPads, etc present. She just left us a note asking that we please lock up our valuables.

"Great honeymoon destination!"
We spent our honeymoon at Villa la Estancia, and were very pleased with our entire experience! villa la Estancia seemed to be a smaller, quiet (although we did go in August, the off season) resort, which was perfect for us to relax and enjoy time by the pool and beach. The food at the main restaurant, La Casona was incredible. We ventured over to Villa las Palmas next door to try the food there, but it was not nearly as good, we would've been happy just staying on our resort for food even though there's only one restaurant for breakfast and dinner and food by the pool for lunch. The pool was amazing- and the swim up bar made it even better. Not to mention, the service we received made us feel like movie stars. The concierge helped us out with booking a couple excursions, a 3 hour ATV ride and a snorkeling trip to Las Marietas. Both were good recommendations. In addition to all this, our room was beautiful with housekeepers that did a fantastic job cleaning our room during the day and turning down our sheets in the evening. I would recommend Villa la Estancia to people looking for a more relaxing, quiet vacation. Villa ls Palmas next door was more of a party vibe than Villa la Estancia. One thinge didn't like was the people trying to get you to come to breakfast, who offer you discounts on excursions. These people are really trying to sell you timeshares. We didn't get roped in, but heard of severalo got trapped into staying for a few hours.

"Beautiful hotel right on the beach"
Villa La Estancia was amazing. We just got back from a 1 week stay last week (Aug 15 - 21, 2013) and would highly recommend this property. The staff was extremely nice, friendly and helpful. They create a comfortable, relaxed environment in the lobby which feels more like a home vs. a hotel lobby (e.g. no big front desk, lots of oversized leather couches and chairs, etc.). It was not very crowded at the property during our stay which was nice - no competition for chairs around the pool, etc. The grounds are beautiful and extremely well kept. Lovely pool at just the right tempature and they had a box full of pool toys which was a nice extra touch. The rooms are gorgeous and nicer than most people's homes! I definitely plan to go back to Villa La Estancia. My husband got a massage at the hotel spa and he said it was the best spa experience he's ever had (better than Napa and other high end places). They pay a lot of attention to you while you are using the facilities (prior to your massage) which made it extra special. For lower cost massage option, head down the beach toward the right and you'll come across 2 small tents on the beach. I went to the 2nd one and got a fantastic massage - as good as any you'd get in the states and so relaxing hearing the ocean in the background. While not private (they have multple tables in a row), I felt adequately covered and not exposed in any way. It was amazing and at just $20 (I gave $10 tip on top), you could afford to get a few!

The bed was a bit uncomfortable, also the pillows, the pillows were changed so it was Ok. The restaurant choice and the food selection very poor for 4+ star hotel, it needs major improvement, bring your own food or be ready to take a taxi for breakfast. The food quality was acceptable but just not enough of selection. The room was clean and the facilities as well. No activities for kids other than the main pool. This is hotel to bring your own food relax and relax some more. The staff were excellent, they did their best to make everything possible for us, never said no and always with a big smile and super friendly. I know all their families by now.

"Great facility and staff. Time share undercurrent"
Great all around and not as crowded as neighboring resorts. wonderful experience at the facility And great staff. The restaurant at Estancia is excellent. However, I strongly believe the Estancia guests should be made aware at check in, that the neighboring and sister resort villa de palamar flamingo, is a time share facility that will aggressively and deceptively try to get you on their presentation. I realize timeshare sales is par for the course in Mexico, however the tactics used in this setting (estancia and flamingo facilities are actually one large facility with 2 names and guests of estancia are encouraged to use flamingo pool etc.) were aggravating, insulting, and left a huge black cloud over our overall "villa" experience. Again, this in no way reflects the Estancia staff but BE AWARE that there is a timeshare under current lurking, basically watching you. do not fall victim.

"AMAZING SUMMER VACAY"
We stayed here for 7 days & 6 nights & we felt as if it were home. The staff were so polite, always willing to help & most important for me they ALL spoke English. I'm half African American & German, my husband is 100% Mexican. In my experience in Mexico is that I'm assuming I look a little Latina-ish because when I go to speak English I always get a snobby look or eyes rolled, I guess it's them thinking I just don't want to speak Spanish.lol. Here I NEVER had this problem! During our trip we also dined again at Punto down on the bay in central, food is amazing! We always visit Bucerias to go hourseback riding along the beach, & this time we made a day trip over to the little island thats a crator, along the way we saw dolphins diving & sea turtle! Our guide took us to the bluest waters where we picnicked & swam before returning to La Estancia! Thank you for making us feel more than welcomed, more than comfortable & of course we will be returning!!!

"Worst Hotel !!!"
!!!!!!!!!!! Worst vacation ever !!!!!!!!! The hotel dose not have any live shows, like other hotel with all inclusive will. They close everything at 9pm including the pools. The beach is nasty, nothing compare to Cancun. Last time I will stay in this hotel worse experience ever. They charge for everything, right when I check in the first day the receptionist said that if I wanted to go to different restaurant inside the hotel I had to pay extra. Long story short I end up paying $2800.00 more on my first day checking in at the hotel. If you want a great hotel that does not have hiding feeds for everything stay at RIU Place hotel you can never go wrong with this hotel. If you stay at these hotel be prepare to pay hiding feeds

Very peaceful hotel. The one next door owned by the same owner is more for families. This one was perfect for a nice quiet time. The food was excellent along with the premium liquor bar. I found that shopping for gifts at the near by town was better than at Puerto Vallarta. The hotel is about 30-40 minutes from the airport. Leo the door man was excellent. The hotel cab service was affordable and all the drivers were very nice and gave tips about where to go and what to do. No timeshare reps are allowed at this hotel but be aware of them at the hotel next door. Tell them you have the Disney Vacation Club and that ends their sells pitch.

"The best pool side bar in Mexico"
Excellent property and beach. In May the hotel was almost empty, so we effectively have full service hotel's staff to our disposal. Nice very clean pull, there are actually two, and pool bar in the middle. The pool bar is the best place to have lunch or late lunch (open till 6 pm). The hotel is all inclusive but you need to get but there is no buffet, almost all food is for order and freshly cooked for your liking. The service the the main restorante is not the highest quality and have limited menue, however we've been able to try everything there is during 7 days stay but would not want to have it all the same again for much longer. For those planning longer stay I would suggest to get a room only and cook your own food. The kitchen in the room is very good and staffed with all needed for cooking. There was only one problem which we were a bit bothered with, its a slow and spotty wi-fi internet connection in the room. I have to go to the lobby few times to get basic e-mails. Otherwise our stay was top rated.

"BY FAR, THE BEST HOTEL!!!"
This is by far, the best service and hotel I have ever experienced in any place and any country I have visited. Whether we were on the pool, at the restaurant, at the bar, or at the beach, I was always greeted by name and anything that I needed was brought to me wherever I was. I say ANYTHING, because at one point, my wife really wanted a dish called "Camarones a la Diabla" and they did not have it in their menu. I don't know how, but in 20 minutes that dish was sitting in our table at the beach. We had the all-inclusive package and it is definitely worth it. We were 3 nights in Nuevo Vallarta and we never had to leave the hotel for anything. Not even to try local restaurants. Not only is to food local and delicious, but they always serve it in very fancy plates with adornments. The room was always very clean and we had a balcony with an excellent ocean view. The pool and beach area are both really really nice!! I usually always have at least one negative comment about a hotel, but this is the only hotel that has exceeded each and every one of my expectations. The price might look like it is high, but for what you get, it's worth every penny!

"Luxury and service"
My spouse and I and 2 kids ages 8 and 11 stayed here for 9 nights. We upgraded to a one bedroom suite upon arrival and it was large and beautiful. The on-site restaurant food was consistently fantastic, and I was particularly please with the low acid fruit plate on the breakfast menu. With the all inclusive package we enjoyed complimentary access to the adjoining resort as well. Staff are all friendly and eager to please. The property is very clean and well maintained inside and out. Mixed drinks such as pina coladas are not syrupy sweet as is often the case elsewhere, and our cans of beer ordered poolside and on the beach came in their own mini ice buckets with sliced lime on the side!

"Nice enough. Not an Expeida vip hotel"
Hotel was overall quite lovely. We did the all inclusive option. Which was likely not worth it. And somewhat annoying as everyone server/bar tender kept asking for our room number. (As some people are not all inclusive). But was a lot as we had to sign after every drink anyways. Big issue was a day it rained and they closed the outside bar/lunch restaurant. And the indoor one was closed to get ready for dinner. So for a few hours. There were no options to eat. You could order a limited menu as room service. But no mixed drinks. The sister property seemed to be fully functioning. But we didn't figure that out for quite awhile, We were not upgraded as they said the next upgrade for a room was not available. I did choose this resort as it was a vip. And have had great upgrades in the past. I would give this a 3 star for an all inclusive. And a 4 for a condo resort. The beach was lovely out front. And you can walk for miles both directions. An overall feeling was the staff was there for the owners not the guests

I had a short weekend stay at Villa Estancia. Lovely hotel but some construction above my room, so drilling noises coming down into my room. Also 2 or 3 times there was no water. I told the concierge staff, they said yes, that happens and smiled creepily at me. Some great touches that were nice, a welcome drink, hand massages, lots of beach chairs, newspaper/book selection by the beach, boogie boards by the beach...BUT vendors allowed on the beach area! Sick to death of them. I enjoyed the spa immensley, gorgeous design, great therapists. The hydro area is great.

"Lovely Resort with Excellent Staff"
This was our second stay at La Estancia, and for the most part, it was as good as the first time. Several of the staff members we met on our first visit, were still there and made every effort to welcome us back. It is generally a lovely resort to relax and enjoy the good service. From the time you arrival, until departure, the staff tries their best to make your stay the best for you. One issue we had, this time, was the food in La Casona restaurant was not up to previous level. We had steaks that despite being sent back twice, were still way too rare and shrimp, one night that was past its prime. The wait staff tried to remedy situation, but apparently there is new kitchen staff. Hopefully, this will improve in time. Other restaurants are also available at sister resort. Our room was kept very clean and was quiet. Poolside, Felix and Gabriel, worked hard at keeping us comfortable and we enjoyed the waiters and food at poolside restaurant. We would certainly consider a third visit in the future.
