We had the most amazing fun here. Our Mexican family, Angela, David and of course Alex (ARod), made every day special. Every detail was seen to from Alex setting us up at the beach and then arriving later with surprise cocktails, beautifully set tables for each meal, to beautiful clean rooms every day and fresh linens, and of course, the food. Chef David made fabulous meals for us and even made chocolate chip cookies almost every day, soft and warm. Yum. Alex, you are the best. Every morning you came in with a smile and it was there all day long. You went way above and beyond and you are such a nice person. We truly embraced all of you my friends. You made our vacation not only amazing but we all feel like you're part of our family now. So, until we see you again. Adios amigos. PS: Shayne, thank you for all your help in setting up this amazing holiday. It was FABULOUS.

Amazing Vacation - We were Spolied!

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the best vacation I have ever had, and I am an extensive traveler! The team at Hacienda Camino al Mar has forever ruined all inclusive resorts for myself and my family. This was SO much better. There were 9 of us, 7 adults and 2 kids in total traveling so that our family was together for the 1 year anniversary of my fathers passing. The Villa is gorgeous - the pictures are 100% indicative of what you are getting. The beds were comfortable, great water pressure, and the whole house was clean, clean, clean. The team that works there are great! Alejandro is your go to guy for just about anything, He brought all of our gear down to the beach daily and even delivered some tasty drinks. His Siracha Margarita is a real treat, and we really enjoyed his pink grapefruit concoction. David, the Chef did some incredible things in the kitchen, I swear I gained an extra 10 lbs. He was able to use leftovers for the next days lunches and save us money. We spent less than $300 Canadian per person (I only counted adults in on food costs) for food and beverage for the whole week. Angela was fantastic with cleaning, and assisting in the kitchen. All 3 were fantastic with the kids, and David even made some cookies for my Niece's to decorate. The Villa is in a prime location - on the main walking strip with shops and restaurants, and 1/2 block to the beach. Kitty corner to the Villa is a taxi stand, in case you ever need one, and Alejandro will help with whatever you need. Bucerias is a beautiful, small, quiet town, and I am in love. Can't wait to go back!

***5 star*** FANTASTIC VACATION!!!

  • 5 of 5

A group of us just returned from this property. I can not say enough great things about this vacation! We were greeted with a smile and a cold drink! House was fabulous but most importantly the staff was out of this world! We did not want for anything! Food was great, and "A- rod" was the best!! He was always available and got anything we needed with no questions asked. Shane was so helpful and answered all of our questions to help make plan our stay with no issues! If you are considering a vacation at this property you will not be disappointed!!! 5 star all the way!!!!

My family of 13 stayed at the beautiful Hacienda Camino al Mar for 6 days/5 nights. We loved it! The villa and the staff were a perfect 10! We went during the rainy season so it was very hot and humid. But it only rained twice, and the rain was a drizzle at best, and both at night. We really got to enjoy the indoor/outdoor living space.

The property is just like the photos. The rooms were clean, pretty & spacious. And even though there were 13 of us (12 adults, 1 child), we weren't on top of one another. The pool was clean and warm and all the rooms are air conditioned to escape the heat.

The staff was excellent. Denise is a fabulous cook! We loved everything she made. No need for dining out! You eat family style so the table was always set for breakfast and dinner. Angela kept our place nice and clean and even did some laundry! She helped Denise in the kitchen, too. And what can we say about Alejandro (Alex)...just the best! Awesome personality. He is your waiter and your bartender. He fresh squeezed orange juice for us every morning. He even went to the store to get my husband a new toothbrush! And, for as great as the staff was, it was like they weren't even there!

The staff surprised my family with entertainment on our last night. It was very nice and we really enjoyed it!

My family has already decided we are going to visit this villa again and again and again...we may try to return during the Spring when it isn't so hot & humid.

Booking with Shayne Holloway was a breeze. She answered all my questions and made the process super easy. This was my first experience booking a VRBO/using and I couldn't have been more satisfied. I would highly recommend this property (and the casita next door) to anyone looking to stay away from the cruise crowds and get great personal Mexican hospitality.

As for activities, we did El Eden Canopy Tour in Puerto Vallarta. In hindsight, it was too far from the villa and we would probably choose a canopy tour closer to the villa. Just for time-saving.

We did take-out the one night the staff was off. The food was good but nothing to "write a review about". I don't remember the names of the restaurants anyway. We missed Denise that day!

Overall, our stay was terrific and we will definitely visit the villa again.

A Wonderful Start to the Summer!

  • 5 of 5

To: Boutique Villas

Re: Hacienda Camino al Mar and

Casita al Mar

Attn: Shayne

Just wanted to let you know what a fantastic week we experienced with

family and friends at both the Hacienda and Casita last week. Those

family members who had visited before we're excited to return; and the

new attendees found it more pleasurable than they ever dreamed. Not one

complaint from anyone about anything!!! And that says something from a

group as large as we were!!

It was a delight to be greeted once again by Denise and Angela upon our

arrival to the Hacienda. I think I told you last time, but those two ladies are true

ambassadors for your organization. They make everyone feel like family!

Both are SO friendly - and the food from Denise's kitchen is superb. We

"seniors" only missed one meal, and that was to attend the Rhythms of the

Night excursion. The young adults (and not all of them) had one evening

out, too. But it was a hard decision to miss the delicious cuisine at the house!

It was fun to have the use of the two houses. And the families at the

Casita were just as comfortable as those of us at the Hacienda.

When we visit again, it might be just Jerry and me and our two kids (with

spouses) and the grandkids. And we'll want the Casita IF we can request

Angela and Denise. Is that a possibility? I need to mention that we also

liked Anna very much, and that although we missed very much seeing Luis,

Alejandro is a great guy just like you said.

All in all we have to rate the vacation 100%!!! And a HUGE thank you to

YOU and the staff for arranging the surprise Mariachis on our last

evening. The Mariachis' music led to much dancing - and even an

impromptu (fully-clothed) jump in the pool by many.

Visiting Bucerias again was a great way to start our summer!

Much thanks and love from,

Susan and Jerry Young

(and the entire Young clan)

Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful and very memorable vacation for my family. There were 16 of us celebrating my father's 80th bday. Everything from the warm and accommodating staff to the delicious meals, to the yummy cocktails served to us at the pool and on the beach, to the comfy bedrooms, to the mariachi dance party, I could go on and on and on. Still dreaming about this villa and time shared with family and new found friends.

Bucerias (meaning 'place of divers') is a quaint little fishing town that attracts those who don't want the hustle and bustle of Puerto Vallarta, but still want amenities of a vacation resort town with close access to Puerto Vallarta (10 miles south of Bucerias). Nestled between Nuevo Vallarta and Punta Mita/Sayulita, Bucerias is truly coming into its own as a favored spot for vacationers.

Of course, the main reason to be in Bucerias is that it boasts 10 miles of sandy beaches, the longest in Banderas Bay. The shallow water and the waves are great for boogie boarding and swimming, and the beach makes for great walks and jogging. Bucerias, which is part of Riviera Nayarit is surrounded by mountains and jungle which donates 345 days of sunshine a year. Enjoy many gourmet restaurants, boutique shops, and the popular Art walk to local galleries every Thursday night from Nov-April- all located within a minute walk of the villa!

Bucerias is 5 min. to golf, 8 miles to Punta Mita/Sayulit

Other Activities: Spanish Lessons, Kite-boarding, Cooking Classes, Pottery Workshop, Spa Services On Site

Golf: 5 minutes to Flamingos Golf Course, 10 minutes to El Tigre and Mayan golf courses in Nuevo Vallarta, 15 min. to golf at the Four Seasons, and 10 miles to golf in Marina Vallarta and Vista Vallarta.
