The resort was selected for it's beauty in 2016 for the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders did a photo shoot for their annual calendar.

The resorts 12 acres offers you uncrowded beach and resort (4) pools (no need to rush to reserve a chair by the pool or beach) filled with ample deck chairs. You can also walk though the acres of gardens or enjoy the full spa, restaurant, tennis, basketball, complimentary maid service and more. You will feel pamper from the beginning to end of your stay. Unlike other resort you will not be subject or asked to participate in a time share presentations. If you require more than one villa I am in charge of a private rental pool of other quality villas at the resort which are also listed here on this site.

In addition to the reasonable and tasty resort ocean front restaurant there are two restaurants(that deliver) and a modern mini-mart just outside of the resorts front gate. Also the resort offers a grocery shopping service.

The floor plan integrate several areas for family and friends to gather, but also provide individual retreats to relax with your own thoughts. As you sit on your terrace overlooking the horizon, time stands still and seems even sweeter at Vallarta Gardens.

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.

Simply Incredible

  • 5 of 5

My recent trip to Vallarta Gardens was simply incredible. I am familiar with Vallarta Gardens I have stayed in La Cruz in the past and checked the location out on my last trip to Puerto Vallarta. The pictures do not do justice to how stunning Vallarta Gardens is. Numerous pools, lush gardens, a great restaurant and right near the beach for all kinds of fun activities. I rented a 3 level with 4 rooms and it was perfect for two families with a total of 5 kids. It was beautifully decorated, great space and had an amazing balcony with a spectacular view. The rooms were a perfect size and not one detail was overlooked from air conditioning in all rooms and great beds. Booking was simple, Fernando our manager was terrific, the staff there is so friendly and helpful and the cleaning staff were excellent. Vallarta Gardens is also such a gem because of its location. La Cruz and Bucerias surround Vallarta Gardens and are little towns that have excellent food and shopping where you get a local feel. I can honestly say the best tacos (Tacos on the Street) and Italian food (Frascati) I have had are in La Cruz and Bucerias which are minutes away. The seafood there is incredible as well as you are right near a marina. Not to mention that if you want to go to downtown Puerto you are about 30 minutes away, if you want to go to a casino 20 minutes away, go swimming with dolphins and sea lions 15 minutes away, it is perfectly located for anything you want to do. I was able to do jet skiing, banana boating, crab catching, and ocean fishing right in the lagoon of Vallarta Gardens. My only disappointment was leaving. I will be back and can't wait.

Amazing Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This property worked out perfect for us. The unit has everything you would ever need. It fit our party of 6 plus 2 kids perfectly. The check in check out process went smoothly. Everything worked (internet went down after 3rd day and wants fixed but really didn't bother any of us). It was nicely furnished and Fernando and the cleaning staff did a great job. The only issues we had was with the property itself. It is absolutely beautiful. Very clean and just pristine. Lots of pools, grassy areas, no problem ever finding chairs by the pool but the hot tubs by the unit were not working so that was a bummer. The other thing was with the staff. We were continuously getting charged more then what we had purchased at the restaurant and bar. They even came by the day after we had dinner saying they were going to add $40 bucks to our bill because they accidentally charged us incorrect. Then we would find extra drinks and food on our bill so I started watching them very carefully. They also told us we were allowed to exchange $100 dollars into pesos each day. They only let us do this once then every day after that they would tell us something different- we only do this for guests of the property- well obviously I am, they had our credit card and unit number, then they would say they ran out of money but we saw other people go in and exchange money, so Im really not sure what that was all about. It did get irritating though. The location of the property is excellent. Great restaurants around, convenient to the stores and the Mega and you could catch a bus or taxi right in front. This will totally be a going back place.

We loved the Villa! It worked perfect for our family! The resort was beautiful- nice and peaceful, and the options of the different pools and beach was so nice. The guys played tennis every day and loved that- we also walked and got fish at the market several times in la cruz.One of the best parts was that the baby monitor reached all the way to the pool- that was so handy!

We really enjoyed our time there, and your home is beautiful! It was very special for us all to be together!

This villa surpassed my families expectations. The view from the roof top bar was spectacular. Nice quiet property. Beautiful rooms with AC. Washer, dryer and dish washer. Beautiful kitchen. The pool is steps from the belcony. Perfect. Absolutly what we wanted. Property was close to many nice places to eat and stores. Short drive to many more. We would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful, relaxing, perfect

  • 4 of 5

Our party of 6 adults had a wonderful trip at Coral Villa 48. The Villa is beautiful and has plenty of room. There is a lovely pool steps away from the villa. Also a great little snack bar for food and drink. The resort staff is very attentive and friendly. Any questions or problems were dealt with immediately. Concierge was very helpful in booking taxis and giving information. The grounds of Vallarta Gardens are gorgeous. Lots of pools and hot tubs to choose from. We have been to All Inclusive resorts, but have decided this is the way to go.

The Villa was nicely equipped with most anything we needed. My husband has a bad leg so the first floor master was great. Our 2 boys and their spouses loved the upstairs accommodations. The main master with balcony upstairs is gorgeous. Many a coffee and drink was had on the rooftop deck.

We went to the main pool mostly and it was not a long walk at all.

We rented the paddle boards and played ping pong and tennis. We rented one kayak, were disappointed the other kayaks were broken.

La Cruz is close by, walkable or cheap taxi ride. The Sunday market in La Cruz is a must. Also recommend Frascati restaurant in La Cruz. They deliver and have a beautiful place on the marina.

We will definitely return to Vallarta Gardens.

Wonderful, relaxing, & beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

The condo was everything that it showed in the listing & the resort was so beautiful, lush & relaxing. The staff was attentive with only a few minor hiccups. The food, spa & beach were awesome. We walked the beach to the local market in La Cruz. It was a wonderful adventure where we purchased some of the local merchandise, fresh fish, and vegetables that made for wonderful dinners. We took a trip into PV for a walk on the warf, a drink at the Lighthouse, & dinner at Victors. A must do. Our day trip with Vallarta Adventures is a must do too. We went out on the sea yacht & were treated to an amazing day. The crew, food & drinks were great. While on the yacht we saw many hump back whales "Bonus Day", snorkeled, power snorkeled, paddled boarded, & just had a wonderful time!

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.
