We couldn’t have stayed at a better place for our family vacation in Puerto Vallarta! Villa Encantada was everything we could’ve hoped for and more!
First off, from the beginning, Paul (the Owner of the Villa) was very accommodating and had great suggestions which played a vital role in planning the best vacation for us all. He made sure we were taken care of and that all of our requests were in order. Communication was a breeze!
As we were driven up the cobblestone street we immediately recognized our villa as we anticipated visiting it for months prior to arrival. We had a large party and it accommodated all of us comfortably. The Villa is beautiful!
Most of our nights were spent playing card games on the kitchen table, dominos on the patio, going night swimming, listening to the exotic birds from the jungle adjacent to us, looking at the views, and watching fireflies off the balcony or outside our bedroom windows. The views were truly exceptional.
Our days were spent outside the villa, but after a long day of shopping, sight-seeing, activities, etc., we couldn’t wait to get back to the comfort of Villa Encantada and Walter’s mouth-watering dinners. Our rooms would be clean and fresh, and our clothes would be washed/ folded for us thanks to Isabel. Walter and Rene would always be ready for our party with drinks and good humor. We even celebrated a very memorable birthday while we were there. Walter and Rene are the biggest pranksters, they always surprised us and we couldn’t stop laughing whenever they were around. Rene had the best recommendations for activities and arranged everything for us including our transportation which was always very prompt. He even helped get us some great prices on Coheba Cuban cigars.
Every morning we would wake up to the smell of some kind of wonderful food cooking in the kitchen and coffee waiting for us on the poolside patio…
THE FOOD: We loved EVERY single meal we had! The food was absolutely amazing! Some of our favorites (just to name a few) were the chili verde, mango crepes, coconut shrimp, bacon-wrapped shrimp, enchiladas and pozole. Walter is the best. Additionally, we had THE BEST burgers we have ever tasted, compliments of Walter (a.k.a. El Diablo).
MOST IMPORTANTLY, and what truly made our stay memorable, was the hospitality and friendship of Walter (El Diablo), Rene and Isabel. They are truly wonderful people whom we came to love! We were literally in tears when we left .. Best Vacation ever ?
