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!

Paradise found!

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing place and everything was perfect. The location is good (be ready to walk up a steep driveway) however at the top is a palace that is beautiful, clean, well kept, with a great staff. Food was amazing and I would recommend staying here.

The best part of your PV trip will be this villa

  • 5 of 5

I came to PV with a group of 10 friends to celebrate my birthday. All of us were completely blown away by how gorgeous all the living spaces, bedrooms and the pool facility were. When you enter this villa you really feel like you're in for a great vacation.

Highlights:

- There are 5 bedrooms...3 of which are full-blown master suites and leave nothing to be desired. The other 2 are connected, share a bathroom, and are great for the people in your group who won't get grumpy not getting a master ;)

- The pool area is INSANE. The picture here doesn't even fully capture how peaceful and inspiring the view is. You'll spend the majority of your day/night here.

- Take Richard/Tina up on the plus-up services. We had massages and a yoga teacher come in during two mornings. There are little luxuries here that really make you feel like you've had a special time.

The one head's up:

- The hill it takes to get to the villas are very steep. My group and I had no problems getting up and down it but if someone in your party is disabled or hurt it will be challenging. My group and I actually used it to work-out every day which made for a very fun vacation work out!

My group and I are already planning on coming back next year and staying at more facilities run by Richard and Tina. Thank you so much...it was the best vacation i've ever had!

Great Private Location in PV!

  • 5 of 5

House is even more impressive in person! If you want to vacation like the Housewives of Beverly Hills this is it. Tina and the staff was wonderful, food was great. Views are unparalleled. Short walk down to beach, Blue Chairs, Mantamar or town. We will definitely be back.
