Puerto Vallarta lies along Banderas Bay, the second largest bay in the Western Hemisphere. It is located 352 kilometers (219 miles) from Guadalajara, the state capital of Jalisco, and is nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Madre mountain range. The region has many forests, rivers and waterfalls, with an average temperature of 27C (80F).
Playa Mismaloya, gained fame from the film "The Night of the Iguana", and became a popular celebrity hangout at the time. Now, visitors flock to see the impressive rock formations of Los Arcos emerge from the bay's crystalline waters, which are great for diving and discovering incredible underwater mountains and steeps. The City Hall has murals painted by Manuel Lepe, and the Malecon (sea wall) is adorned with romantic bronze sculptures. Whats more, the streets of downtown offer shops and galleries that sell local paintings and sculptures of local artists. The city, known for its top-notch services, also has golf courses, boutiques and a marina.
In Puerto Vallarta you can enjoy the exquisite regional cuisine of Jalisco, that so many people have come to love, and the terraces of open-air restaurants, where you can watch cruise ships roll in as you take in an incredible sunset.
Sport fishing is just one of many activities you can do during your stay in Puerto Vallarta. Each year, during the month of November, the International Sailfish Fishing Tournament takes place. Other activities available in this region are eco-tourism, extreme sports, snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, boating, golfing and nightlife.
The villa is just outstanding: well-appointed, well-maintained, absolutely zen, and located in a very picturesque part of the bay in Mismaloya. We enjoyed great privacy with the staff catering to our every need. The food was outstanding and our compliments to the chef- Chuy (try her amazing Chile Rellenos and Tortilla Soup). We are able to completely relax and take each day as it came - it was truly a welcome holiday. Pancho/ Alfonso was amazing in making our every desire met, from a gorgeous hike in the jungle, to couples spa massages overlooking the beautiful view of Los Arcos, to 10 am jetski ready to go the next morning, he was on top of it, above and beyond. Bertha was great as well and kept the house sparkling for us. This was an incredible romantic holiday for 2 but can see how amazing it would be for family and friends alike. It was made all the more special by staying in such a lovely Villa, with an incredibly attentive, talented staff. Thank you!
THE STAFF: From the moment we arrived at Los Arcos we were greeted with 3 warm smiles and a breathtaking view. Alfonso, Bertha, and Chuy perfected the experience from beginning to end. Alfonso was incredibly knowledgeable and patient as we planned activities for each day. He is the best.
THE HOUSE: Immaculate. So much detail has gone into every inch - the view, the rooms, the amenities, the pool, the view. It was a beautiful home and we can't wait to come back again!
LUXURY RETREATS: Eric Rowan was a huge help in identifying the perfect house for the group, the occasion and our particular needs. After many phone calls, emails, and countless questions we identified the ideal location and house...Los Arcos.
Claudia Hernandez was our assigned concierge. She was helpful in putting together the itinerary, but not quite as responsive or forthcoming with info. I felt i had to pull a lot of info out and double check many details leading up to the trip.
Everything was great! The friendliness of staff was one of the best things, as they were always attentive to my needs and always had a quick response. (Both, at Luxury Retreats and also at The Villa)
The Villa is beautiful with an excellent service and a great location. One of the best vacations I've had. 100% advisable!
Unbelievable, my hats off to Alfonso, Chuy and Bertha, they did an amazing job and always with a smile. The house was beautiful, totally exceeded our expectations, the view was remarkable. Staff spoiled us every day, which made it very difficult to leave. Will be returning in the very near future!!
Everything exceeded my expectations: the home is beautiful with fabulous architectural detail and furnishings, floor plan ideal for personal and/or party time and the location a perfect blend between the outskirts and a 20 minute drive to the city. Equally impressive and key to our enjoyment was the staff: Chey the chef continued to amaze with traditional Mexican meals, Berta maintained the living spaces and spoiled us with fresh towels, sheets and laundry while Alfonso (Poncho) was the resident concierge coordinating daily excursions and made sure everything ran smooth. Los Arcos is off the hook!
The home was beautiful, the staff was amazing, the food was awesome (gained 4 pounds), the views were spectacular. We felt pampered and spoiled. There just aren't enough synonyms for amazing to describe our experience. We're all confident we'll be going back to Villa Los Arcos.
