Absolutely stunning property, the staff is wonderful and always ready to help. We enjoyed a beautiful week in a wonderful resort and are certainly thinking of returning to this part of paradise. There is the option to order food online from a gourmet store... it arrives at your doorsteps and the quality is the same as in the US. The resort provides everything you can think of gym, massages at the beach or at your villa, the pools are great and you hardly see guests... the only sound comes from the colorful birds. And a big thank you to Rick who was extremely helpful in answering all our questions in a timely manner. We felt welcome from the first minute we arrived in Puerto Vallarta.

A wonderful location...awesome place

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful stay at this Villa at Vallarta Gardens! We had 3 families with kids aged 3 to 9 yrs old stay here over Thanksgiving week. A beautiful villa with plenty of space and beds for all. The outdoor patio and private pool was perfect for the kids. Additionally, the 2 larger infinity pools and hot-tub were just down out back stairs. And the beaches were another 20 yards past that. Very easy to go back and forth between the areas. We had 2 nights with private dinners at the villa. The restaurant staff set up an amazing, relaxing dinner. Luis, Daniel, and others were all terrific and very kind. The two concierges, Monica and Augustina, were incredibly helpful. They answered every question we had and helped set up taxi service, restaurant reservations, and set up a fishing trip. The boat picked us up and dropped us off at the beach of the resort.

There were a few house maintenance issues, but the staff responded immediately and the owners are super-motivated to make it right.

We would definitely stay here again without hesitation.

Amazing and beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday!! The resort is beatiful and the house is amazing... The house is the same as it looks in the photos... the private pool is perfect, and other pools and jacuzzis in the resort are amazing... the beach is very quiet, just perfect for us having small children. Everything was perfect, so we recommend this villa 100%!!!

Mostly good

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for 7 nights while renting the two villas next to each other. This review is for this specific villa.

The good:

Overall the house was very nice. Great space, rooms were great.

Great location and view

The staff at Vallarta Gardens were top notch. They provided great service and I couldn't have been happier

The not so good:

Little things here and there at the house was not working. The back sliding door would not lock which was a safety concern as we had some small children with us. The jacuzzi tub in the master room did not work. The AC unit in one of the room with twin beds kept on leaking. We had to call service for it 3 times. The maintenance guy did come and work on the issue in a reasonable time which is a good thing.

The pool in the back yard could be bigger. It's not a real negative but for those of you who are expecting a pool to swim in, this is not for you as this pool is more meant to lounge in.

Overall it was a cool place to stay. Just those little things that kept me from giving 5 stars.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your note. I am delighted you enjoy your stay, the resort and the villa. At the same time I am sorry that there were a number of small items that did not work 100% as you expected. You are right small things do matter. As you can image a house of this large size has many items that from time to time need adjustments. The small items are the hardest to identify and we appreciate you letting us know so that they could fixed. I am pleased that you felt that the staff was responsive and were able to address the items. Thank you again for staying with us and hope to host you again. Rick

Everything was AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was AMAZING!

The villa and the resort were amazing. It was clean, comfortable and elegant. Everything worked perfect. The owner is very responsive and the guest services in the resort were great. They clean the villa every day, which is amazing. Is like a hotel. They book taxis for you and have a shuttle inside the resort. The food from the restaurant is very good. You have an amazing view from the beach and the area is very relaxing. I would totally recommend it. STAY HERE!

Beautiful getaway! Great for families!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our family in February. We stayed in the Sea Star and it was only steps from the beach. The resort has lush landscaping, beautiful private patio spaces with private pools and everything is well maintained. The grandparents loved the beach walk to the pier in the morning. The kids loved the close access to the pool. We loved the privacy. This suite has everything you could ask for. It is huge! We ordered the grocery delivery and a fresh bouquet or tropical flowers for our arrival. Everything was there and set up nicely. We also ordered in dinner from the fish restaurant around the corner for our first evening and it was delicious. The rooms are very spacious. There was actually too much room for all of us. Everything was finished very nicely. The bathrooms were incredible. The concierge staff were excellent. Getting a hold of someone who speaks English at the office is a bit hard in the evening. The pool was never busy. The restaurant at the resort is affordable and good. The nearby restaurants are endless. We rented a vehicle and toured around a bit. The housekeeping staff were spotless. We really really enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone wanting a nice private vacation!
