This was our first trip to Puerto Vallarta. The villa was wonderful with amazing views. The staff made the most wonderful margaritas. We would highly recommend Villa Marbella, and we are looking forward to our return!

A group of 14 traveled to Puerto Vallarta for our 40th birthdays! The staff at Villa Marbella was welcoming, friendly and made sure our stay was amazing. The house was perfect, with plenty of space, wonderful views, great food and excellent Margaritas! The walk to the beach was shorter than anticipated and having a pool at the house was ideal. Overall it was a fantastic trip and we would love to come back again.

Great house, great space!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful. The house is large. We had 17 people staying in the house, and it never felt to small. The main floor has no bedrooms on in, so no one will be affected by noise, and there is plenty of room for everyone to hang out on the main floor. The best part of the house is that every one of the 8 bedrooms is great and has a great view. There is one bedroom with a view is partially obstructed by a tree, but I actually liked that view as you felt like you were up in the trees in the jungle. All but 2 of the bedrooms have their own bathroom, so that makes it really easy for everyone. There's a billiards room on the bottom floor where one of our group slept on the couch/futon. The furniture was very comfortable, and people often successfully napped on the couches throughout the house. The staff were very helpful arranging transportation, meals, etc. you're only 5 minutes walk from a nice beach. Getting taxis to the house was very easy. We'd often walk (downhill) to los muertos (15 minute walk), and then taxi home (up the hill). It was only 70 pesos for 4 people (currently equivalent to $3.50) to take a taxi. I've stayed in many other great houses in PV, but this house with all of its open space on the main floor, tons of patio space, so many bathrooms, and 8 great bedrooms really made accommodating 17 people in our group very easy.

Exceptional villa with wide views of the bay

  • 5 of 5

We spent a blissful week at Villa Marbella. Each morning we awoke to a sumptuous 3 course breakfast, and each evening we enjoyed a three course dinner on the terrace overlooking the sunset and the bay. Margaritas were made from freshly squeezed limes each evening, and there were amazing appetizers each afternoon.This gave us so much time to enjoy the local beaches, to shop the PV stores, to chill on the deck and float in the pool. The villa is sparkeling clean and each room has astounding views...It is quite a gem Highly is the manager, who is available in an instant for any concerns. This was a family trip, but I wil look for an opportunity to return with friends.

Incredible place and staff

  • 5 of 5

We were there with a group of 11 for a 40th birthday and it was beyond amazing. The staff was there for our every need, from Leo arranging our transportation in and out of town and taking care of things around the Villa, Rodrigo's to die for food. Everything Rodrigo made was authentic and delicious Mexican food and he catered to the specific dietary needs to two of the guests. And Maria the maid was great in all the cleaning, towel folding and bed making around the Villa. Our week trip in Puerto Vallarta was incredible and staying at Villa Marbella made it much more incredible. Would absolutely stay here again.

Villa Marbella is amazing! The pictures on the website don't do the house justice. Ocean views from every room. Open and airy. There are seating areas everywhere, if you want to get away from the main action and have some quiet time. It's about a 5 minute walk down the hill to the beach, and about a 20 minute walk into town (or a 100 peso cab ride).

The staff was wonderful - warm, lovely, and super helpful! Leo took such good care of us - he made sure our margarita glasses were always full and he hooked us up with great snorkeling! And Olga's chicken mole, green salsa, huevos rancheros, and guacamole were incredible - seriously, be sure to ask for the chicken mole one night!

There are 8 bedrooms with king size beds, so while you can fit additional people on the sleeping couches, 16 people seems to be the right number, even though the house can sleep 20. We had 15 people in our group.

Our group is already planning our next trip back! Can't wait!

Enjoy the glittering sunset as you supper. The view will take your breath away. The deck has ample space for sunbathing or relaxing. If you are observant, you may catch sight of a pod of dolphins or whales making their way down the coast. Conchas Chinas beach, a local secret, is a short walk down the hill.

Puerto Vallarta is a beautiful tropical resort destination filled with romance and adventure. Located on the same latitude as Hawaii, Vallarta enjoys a year-round tropical climate. Enjoy the enchanting downtown where cobblestone streets are lined with quaint white-washed houses, century-old churches and an inviting array of shops and restaurants. Vallarta offers deep-sea fishing, a range of water sports, sightseeing attractions, golf courses, tennis facilities, and a sizzling nightlife. Puerto Vallarta is magical; it is a paradise that can truly give you the vacation of a lifetime. And there is no better way to enjoy Vallarta than with a stay at Villa Marbella.
