Spend the day catching some rays at Vallarta Gardens Resort and Spa - Luxury Villas's private beach, relaxing by one of the resort's 4 outdoor swimming pools, or pampering yourself at the full-service spa.

Uncomplicated yet compelling, Vallarta Gardens embodies the ideal of resort living. The Mexican Coastal style of architecture incorporated open spaces and outdoor living to take advantage of the nearly perfect climate of Banderas Bay.

The stately whitewashed homes are a striking contrast to the rich natural colors of the grounds, while the wood and stone details blend well with the tropical surroundings. This architectural detail dates back over 2,000 years, reflects a strong Mexican tradition, and is admired for its beauty, utility and environment-friendly construction.

I am in charge of a private rental pool of other quality villas at the resort. Please check out my website listed here on HomeAway for more photos of the villa and resort along with additional area information.

“Perfect for a family vacation or reunion!”

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Vallarta Gardens. The complex is clean and family-friendly and our visit was grand.

On this trip, we had 9 family members -- ranging in age from 1 to 65 -- from 4 different states for a week-long holiday. There was plenty of room. With all the different levels -- including a roof deck with a sweeping view of the ocean -- everyone could have privacy or quiet if they needed it. We had the baby napping on one floor while the older kids played games on another floor and the adults relaxed and read books somewhere else. When we wanted to be together, the first floor great room was spacious enough for all of us to gather.

There are many pools on the property but the one near the restaurant was our favorite - it is next to a hot tub and beside the beach. The beach is clean, and there are two sections - one area is a bay with very calm water which is perfect for little ones to play. Some of the adults took the free kayaks out and enjoyed that very much.

The food at the restaurant is excellent. They serve breakfast and lunch. There are other restaurants within walking distance or a short cab ride away. There are two small grocery convenience stores near the entrance to the complex (easy walking distance) where you can get what you need for basic meals.

The staff is very helpful. One member of our family accidentally left his wallet in the restaurant. An hour later, a waitress arrived at our door with the wallet, with all the cash and credit cards intact.

We would recommend this villa to anyone looking for a large villa for a family vacation or reunion.

Family Getaway to Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Vallarta Gardens was amazing! From the moment we arrived we experienced the helpfulness and hospitality of the staff. Elias one of the front gate guards immediately guided us to our villa, unloaded our bags from the car, and offered to take us on a tour of the grounds in one of the resorts golf carts. The villa was great! It felt very homey and inviting. It is very well stocked for you to come in and just enjoy your time away. We loved how spacious it was. We had 8 family members stay at the villa and never had a problem with space. The outdoor spaces are amazing. We particularly liked the 3rd floor rooftop terrace. We enjoyed dinner and drinks there at least once a day and even had massages out there, which I totally recommend. The proximity to the pools and beach can’t be beat. There is a hot tub and pool right within steps from the villa. We enjoyed the hot tub a bit more than the pool since the pool was a bit too cool. It is a great place to relax on the lounge chairs and read a book since it is very well shaded. The grounds are beautiful and very well taken care of.There is a bit of construction and updating going on within the resort and some of the villas but it doesn’t take away from the amazing atmosphere. We ate the restaurant for breakfast on 2/6 days we stayed and definitely recommend the breakfast buffet. Everything we had was delicious and we were able to sit at the tables overlooking the beach both times. The kids had a blast playing in the sand on the private beach. The water was very clean and there were no waves which the kids really loved. There are many padded lounge chairs and umbrellas around the beach and the staff was more than willing to rearrange the furniture to fit the size of our group. Hands down our favorite pool was the beachfront pool. You are unable to bring drinks or snacks to that pool and the beach but the pricing for food and drinks at the restaurant are very reasonable so we did not mind it. Martin and Angel, 2 of the staff members, recommended that we try the tacos across the street one night. They were so good we actually had them twice and definitely recommend. We rented a vehicle while there and visited the surrounding towns, Sayulita, Bucerias, and Puerto Vallarta. The villa is in the perfect location. You’re able to venture out into the action but easily able to come back to the relaxation of Vallarta Gardens. My family and I hope to definitely be back to the villa. Thank you!

Beautiful home, pool and gardens. Family loved it.

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfectly set up to walk through the door and immediately relax. We did not often felt the need to leave the outdoor terrace with views over the marina and across Banderas Bay. The beautiful pool just outside the villa was perfect for the kids. We enjoyed the contrast of bustling Bucerias and the slow-paced town of La Cruz.

Some great restaurants within walking distance and even more great ones are an 80 peso ($4-5) cab-ride away in Bucerias. Downtown PV and the surf town Sayulita are each a reasonable cab ride or drive away. Friendly locals & expats and lovely La Cruz town square. Immaculate new marina with many open slips, and impressive sailing center. Nice to watch the racing lasers and optis everyday from the beach -- Mexico's future Olympians. It is a reasonable driving distance to good surf spots (although quite small when we were there) between La Cruz and Punta de Mita.

Really loved the resort and it’s gardens and it never felt crowed or did we have to wait for service at the main poolside bar.

I have traveled in Mexico several times since 1996, and apart from more coastal development, it has the same look and feel it always did. Despite the media furor about rising gang violence, nothing ever seemed remotely threatening here. I say go to the area and have a great trip like we did.

The place was great!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Vallarta Gardens. The place was expected in terms of layout and décor. We also thought the location was good, and also the various pools...though the main thing we liked is that it was quiet family resort even when it was supposedly “busy”.

The place was great! Thanks and hope we will return.

Grounds & Villa were beautiful & staff amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! Everyone got along, the grounds were beautiful and well maintained and the staff was amazing. We loved how peaceful and quiet the beach was - especially after dinner one night in Bucerias when the beach vendors were relentless. We hadn't stayed that far north before and so glad we did as we loved the location. Both La Cruz and Bucerias had great dining options and the Sunday market in La Cruz was a lot of fun. We really appreciated the restaurant, too. The menu was good and the prices were VERY reasonable. We wound up never even making breakfast in the villa and went to the oceanfront restaurant.

The villa itself worked great for the 8 adults. The rooftop deck was a lot of fun. Fernando the local manager was very responsive to the one or two small issues at the villa.

We had a wonderful time and hope to return again. Thanks again.

This is a great vacation place.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great about Vallarta Gardens.

Getting all the specific information from Rick about the place and the booking process was very clear and easy.

Fernando is very professional and helpful. Everything was ready at our arrival.

He gave us an excellent recommendations for eating and beach swimming.

The resort is beautiful. The gardens, the pools, the beach, the view, ... and everything perfectly maintained.

The Villa was perfect for us.

The bedrooms were great, the living and dining rooms very functional, the patio and the terrace relaxing, and everything nicely decorated and well equipped.

It was a really good experience.

We already talked about Vallarta Gardens to the people we know that we have seen so far.

If someone ask us for a place to go in Puerto Vallarta we will not hesitate to tell them to contact Rick.

Just a short 10 min walk to La Cruz and the new Marine this is the perfect location to get away from it all, but be close enough to not only La Cruz but Bucerias and Puerto Vallarta that you can get out and experience it all. And just 20 minutes from the airport.
