Amazing family fun!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Vallarta Gardens! The villa was exactly as described (actually better in person) and was spotlessly clean. We loved that each bedroom had it's own bathroom, air conditioning controls and there was tons of room! The family loved using the both the private pool and the resort pool that was just steps away. The beach was as we had hoped and never crowed. We liked that the resort development and it is close to La Cruz (walking distance) towns but far enough away to be quiet and enjoyable. You really do not need a rental car, though we did have one. In just a few minutes you could get into Bucerias (or a 25 minute walk on beach), La Cruz (a 10 minute walk), Punta Mita and Sayulita for outings and meals. Or we were equally happy lounging by one of the many pools available on the resort or walking the lush gardens. I really like the spa and my husband took advantage of the workout room that was right on the ocean. Washer and dryer were a bonus!! Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful property!!

Another day in paradise!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We recently rented a villa in vallarta gardens which was magnificent and incredible. the rooms were spacious with there own bathrooms and showers, and some with baths and Jacuzzis. the views were incredible. the villa has its own pool, and is a staircase away from a large communal pool and the beach. the home was clean, well taken care of and well air conditioned. the staff was friendly and courteous and the grounds were great. we had an amazing time and i highly recommend this place for a terriffic family vacation!

The resort has great amenities and organizing the use of water equipment and spa services was easy and pleasant.

The owner that we dealt with was also great and made the process so easy.

Thank you for the most amazing family vacation!

Great for families, small children and elderly

  • 5 of 5

We really loved our stay at Vallarta Gardens! The villa was great, even better than the pictures on the web page. I have rented many properties in Puerto Vallarta, Punta Mita and Bucerias and honestly this villa at Vallarta gardens it was one of the best I ever rented. Each room was beautifully decorated and in excellent conditions. The service of all the people that work at Vallarta gardens was exceptional. The food at the restaurant was very good and at very affordable price. I definitely recommend this villa.

Beautiful villa outside of Punta de Mita

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Vallarta Gardens. There were 12 of us (6 adults, 4 kids, and 2 babies) and there was still plenty of room for everyone. The resort was beautiful and we had the beach to ourselves. Can't wait to go back again.

Beautiful condo close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful condo for a bigger group. We were two families traveling together with 4 adults and 3 kids. We definitely could have had more people and still have had plenty of room to spread out. The condo has it's own little pool, a little bigger than a plunge pool. It was cool and refreshing and away from any crowds. There are two pools very close to the condo and one is right next to the beach. You can see the sea from the third floor sun deck and a little from the master bedroom deck, but you are not on the beach or water.

The condo is in a gated resort and has a restaurant, which stops serving pretty early, between 5 and 7. They do a nice job, but it's worth the ride into town to one of the restaurants.

The resort has really wonderful service. All the housekeeping, maintenance and concierge do a great job. We did have a couple maintenance issue, but they were taken care of very quickly. The condo is pretty private, but you can hear your neighbors when you're around the pool or if your neighbors decide to really crank their music. We did have to call down to security one night when it sounded like a dance club had moved in next door. It was quickly handled.

It's good to have a little Spanish under your belt at this resort. It's about 30-40 minutes from Puerto Vallarta and La Cruz is a fishing village. Many people can speak a little English, but are not necessarily fluent. I like that the resort wasn't just Americans.

One issue is that the spiral staircase is painted and quite slippery. I think almost everyone in our group fell on those steps. If there is anyone with mobility issues, they definitely need to stay in the first floor bedroom, which is a king bedroom.

We used the kitchen quite a bit, especially for breakfast and lunch. It's pretty well equipped and the major grocery store is about 15-20 minutes away. It's worth the trip over if you plan on cooking.

While staying there we rented the standing paddle boards and sea kayaks. We also went snorkeling, scuba diving, zip lining (called canopy) and horseback riding. The only thing I wouldn't recommend is the snorkeling when it's the busy season. Dozens of boats showed up and it was actually quite dangerous.

Overall, I would stay here again. It's a relaxing place and beautiful. It's clean and well-maintained. People are helpful and friendly. The owner was good to work with.

It was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The trip was great! Everything went off without a hitch and everyone enjoyed themselves immensely! The staff at Vallarta Gardens were all very professional, courteous and attentive to all our needs. They really added to the enjoyment of the stay and were wonderful!

The villa was also very comfortable, spacious and first class all the way. We were a little surprised that a couple minor things but the staff took care of it straight away. The resort was beautiful and we loved the spa!!!

In all, it was a very enjoyable stay and we would certainly look to stay there again. Thanks for a great time.
