Fantastic villa - 5 Stars all the way!!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic vacation! Total 5 star experience from the accommodations, view, food and staff! Richard was an amazing help in guiding us to the right places and all sorts of tips that made the trip even better. Chef Tina and Chef David prepared the most amazing meals that we can't stop talking about. The views were incredible and we loved being in this area of PV. Close hike to the beach and cheap taxi rides. Every bedroom was beautiful and the villa was immaculate! Tonie did an amazing job setting up our day of relaxation. We recommend the massage treatments at the villa! Entire staff was top notch!! We will definitely be back! Thank you Richard, Tonie, Tina, David and your staff for the most relaxed and memorable vacation!

a perfect place

  • 5 of 5

we absolutely loved Villa Francisco. wonderful location, amazing ocean views, and the *best* staff. tina, the chef, was amazing - every meal was memorable and the presentation was superb.

we had a group of ten, and it never felt crowded. our best days were spent sitting by the infinity pool enjoying the view!

the location, like most of the good villas, is up a steep hill, but still only about a ten minute walk from the beach and town. getting a cab when we didn't feel like walking was very easy.

we hope to be back at Villa Francisco very soon!

Fantastic experience, highly recommended, minor forgivable wrinkles

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic experience at Villa Francisco and hope to return again in another year. The staff was wonderful and a special call-out to the chef, David, who made AH-MA-ZING meals for us. It was truly like eating in a gourmet restaurant every night, he had great suggestions and was incredibly easy to work with. The property itself is quite lovely, perched way high on a hillside above Puerto Vallarta, spectacular views. The master suite and the two other suites (Verde and Azul) are amazingly spacious and well appointed. Our only disappointment with the physical property is that you have to walk through bedroom #5 to get into bedroom #4 - thankfully we were all good friends in this slightly awkward layout.

The minor wrinkles? Several of the in-room safes didn't work, and despite attempts to repair them, still didn't work at the time we left. Our grocery list seemed to serve more as general guidance than an actual list, though thankfully the staff was gracious about taking back the Costco/Kirkland Wine and Tequila that were substituted for what we'd actually requested. The car service we requested through the concierge showed up 2 of the 3 times we requested for airport transport, though the concierge immediately fixed the problem by getting a taxi when the car service didn't show up. These are all manageable issues and not surprising when traveling outside of the U.S.

Better than you can imagine.

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I came with both our families. Eight people in all, for 10 days. I have been to PV at least 10 other times and have rented on VRBO 7 other times. This one...absolute favorite. The house is amazing, my kids even made an old school MTV cribs video. House is gorgeous, but the addition of the staff was wonderful. Chef David couldn't be nicer, more accommodating and makes great food. If I were you and like other reviews let him surprise you (tell him Italian, steak, general Mexican, enchiladas) because you will love that the best. There were 2 meals we ate, that not a single member of our family had and well...best meals of the week. And the presentations of the food, so awesome. Only complaint and hardly that is the fact that we all have to work extra hard for overeating every day. BTW, we ate 3 dinners in town and not only were Chef David's meals better tasting than the restaurants, but so much easier, because you get out of the pool or just relaxing, overeat on your meals and then right back to enjoying your vacation immediately after! No one works harder than Juanita, she went out of her way to make sure all we did was enjoy our vacation, clean house, and clothes, and you get nothing but smiles. Just an absolutely warm and friendly staff. You will be greeted by Richard, who is super nice, friendly and very much wants you to enjoy your vacation. We will be back, and this will be a great vacation for you when you book this house, THERE IS A REASON THAT THIS RENTAL HAS NOTHING BUT GREAT REVIEWS.

A Delightful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of eight (grandparents, parents and teenagers) enjoyed a wonderful 11 day vacation at Villa Francisco in June, 2016. Our entire stay exceeded our expectations. The Villa is quite large and beautiful and is in excellent condition. The staff of people are friendly and helpful and they did everything they could possibly do to make sure that our needs were met. We spent the entire time there with smiles on our faces.

For the first two days we selected the meals we wanted and they were superb. After that we turned over the meal planning and preparation to Chef David. We asked him to surprise us, and he did just that. A master chef with decades of experience, David and his assistant prepared one memorable meal after another, which we thoroughly enjoyed without exception.

Our family had several events to celebrate, so Tina arranged for a Mariachi band to entertain us while we were served hors d’oeuvres by the pool. These five musicians were incredibly talented and played every one of our musical requests perfectly. This was followed by everyone taking several whacks at a colorful piñata before someone finally connected and cascades of candy spilled out. After that, dinner was served. Tina really knows how to throw a party!

Juana, the housekeeper, was incredibly caring and efficient. The villa was spotless when we arrived, and she kept it that way for the entire time we were there. After a few days we asked her to wash some clothes for us, and before we knew it we found the clothes clean and neatly folded on our beds.

The pool was cleaned and maintained throughout our stay, and that was good because everyone spent time happily splashing around in the water. A plus was the pirate ship that cruised around the port and set off fireworks every night right after dark.

The city of Puerto Vallarta is enchanting, the people are helpful and friendly, and the beaches are pristine. Toni the concierge arranged for an eight-person van to take us wherever we wanted to go, like to Walmart and the hour drive to Sayulita beach.

Richard, the owner of Villa Francisco, was so gracious and his attention to detail made our stay even more enjoyable. He works hard to make sure his guests have a great experience, and his entire staff echoes that desire. This was truly a five star experience!
