Not enough stars

  • 5 of 5

There are not enough stars for this rare setting!

The most perfect place and staff anywhere and we have traveled the world forever.

It is fabulous for any and all, with an elevator for those who don't like or can't use stairs. Great exercise for those who do.

The Staff could not be better, almost invisible, but when you start thinking maybe you want something they magically appear.

We only ate out twice as the food is so GOOD...Why go anywhere?

We had good adventures and walked into town on a daily basis.

The Art Galleries are great, especially Gallery Dante, which is an art warren, you could spend half a day browsing and then have drinks upstairs.

We shall definitely go back

Paco is incredible and Jovanni also. The rest of the staff is wonderful, but we didn't see much of them.

Gorgeous villa in beautiful Puerto Vallarta!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Estrella Mar for a week and it was super relaxing. We were blown away by the beauty of the villa, the fantastic views, the private pool and access to the beach.

The entire villa is decorated traditionally which takes you back into a different time and place. The villa is huge and we loved exploring and walking through the different rooms, and getting down to the beach directly from the villa. The town is just a 10-min walk on the beach which is very convenient to get to the shops, restaurants or boats that take you fishing/ snorkeling/ jet skiing.

We stayed at the suite overlooking the private pool and the ocean, which was so spacious, with a beautiful bath tub and a balcony to enjoy the breathtaking views of the ocean. The staff there is excellent and pamper you - Paco, Giovanni, Chefs Lupe and Lola, were all wonderful. They made some extraordinary food and were there to always care of you to ensure you have a fun/ relaxing time - be it the margaritas, clean and ironed laundry or a taxi to go into town. We were overfed with fantastic food and drinks - if you are someone who loves to try the local flavors, you won't be disappointed. We loved the breakfast French toast along with other local unique Mexican dishes. Breakfasts and dinners in the expansive dining room with amazing sunsets over the Pacific Ocean with lunches by the poolside were an absolute treat.

Spending time at the villa was amazing and an experience that we will never forget. We will be back!!

You'll never want to leave!

Villa Estrella Mar is one of the most breathtaking private villas in the Playa Conchas Chinas area! My husband and I fell in love with the property after touring over a dozen villas for our destination wedding venue. Immediately upon arriving, we knew Villa Estrella Mar was “the one.” The beautiful architecture, the authentic Mexican art, and unbeatable views make the Villa truly outstanding. Pictures can hardly convey just how impeccable the grounds are.

We stayed at the Villa in October with 16 of our closest friends. Wedding aside, it was important to my husband and I to ensure that all of our guests felt pampered and that they had an unforgettable vacation. A vacation at the Villa surpasses any experience you would have at a local resort. Paco, Jovanni and the rest of the staff went above and beyond to provide exceptional service to our friends and family. From preparing amazing meals, to making poolside margaritas, to saving the day when last minute wedding disasters struck, the staff took such great care of us and I can’t thank them enough.

If you’re looking to plan a wedding here, I highly recommend doing so! We used the pool area for our ceremony, the garden terrace level for cocktail hour and spacious living room for our reception. Our guests were blown away by the Villa’s beauty and the views from every level. We can’t wait to return to Villa Estrella Mar for future anniversaries and celebrations!

Well, it is very difficult to adequately convey the spectacular nature of the Villa Estrella del Mar. The website and descriptions of the Villa are awesome. As you research, you get a vague idea as to the beauty of the facility, the unbelievable views, and the amenities provided.

However, if you are lucky enough to see this place, and stay there, I guarantee you will be blown away. Each master suite is unique, in perfect repair, and gorgeous. We stayed in a suite, which overlooks the pool, complete with a private outdoor shower, the most beautifully tiled bathtubs I have ever seen, and many beautiful pieces of art. Our suite had views of the pool area and a panoramic view of the sea. Falling asleep to the sound of the surf was an enormous treat. Each of the suites at the Villa is unique, and none would disappoint.

The common areas at the Villa (it is huge) are breathtaking. (This sounds over the top, but it is absolutely true). The pool area, great room and terraces, the kitchen…..all are beautifully decorated, yet cozy and welcoming, incorporating many fine pieces of art. There was so much to see that we were still discovering art and portions of the Villa we had not yet seen by the 5th day of our stay.

The staff at the Villa, including the chief, Paco, chefs Lupe and Lola, and Jovanni, who, among other things, made certain we were never without a pina colada, cola or margarita, were professional, personable and very good at their specialties. The professionalism extended across all the staff, including Ana, Patty, Arturo and Ismael. Among our favorite Villa staffers was the mysterious Laundry Fairy, who surreptitiously removed dirty laundry from our suite each morning and delivered back perfectly clean laundry the following day. We never caught him/her doing this, but we thank you!

As this review is too long, I will simply state that staying at the Villa is a once in a lifetime experience. We will be getting a group together so we can go back. This is the perfect destination.

ESTRELLA MAR possibly the only holiday to have. Our family and friends travelled for school break and work from Sydney Australia.

Paco and his team were outstanding. Nothing was too much for them. They were so charming,funny and extremely attentive. A margarita always on hand... LOVED. Jovanni nailed it.

The Villa has the most magnificent art ,rooms are so full of Mexico so you are immersed in history at every corner you turn.

Lupe and Lola treated us daily to the most scrumptious meals.... thus the gym was a must on our return home...It was such a privledge to wake up every morning to see Puerto Vallarta in its glory.

Sunsets out of this world.

Estrella Mar we will return xoxo
