Reviews for Villa La Estancia - Riviera Nayarit
We travelled over the kids spring break in April and had a fantastic family vacation. The resort is very beautiful and well maintained. It is a little on the quiet side which worked very well for a family vacation but if you're looking for lots of bars and night life you might be disappointed. The standard room we had was incredibly spacious for a family of 4. There was a large walk in closet which was such a bonus. Sharing a balcony with the adjacent room could be awkward but we lucked out that no one stayed in that room (apparently you can request a divider screen of some sort if you want privacy). We had the all inclusive package and we very glad we did. The food across the board was fantastic! This resort and the one adjacent are sister properties and La Estancia guests are allowed to use the restaurants and pool at both properties. With the restaurants at both properties there were enough dining options for dinners for our week stay. La Casona is the fanciest place of the options. Make a reservation to sit outside if you can. It is lovely. I would also recommend the buffet breakfast at the adjacent property. You can sit outside near the ocean and enjoy your morning coffee! Poolside lunches either at the restaurant or served at your deck chair were fantastic! The food on this menu was varied and offered all of us many choices for the week. My son is somewhat finicky and even he found many things to enjoy. Drinks were good too. Wine and beer choices were good. If you want a cocktail you are able to request higher end types of liquor. My kids ordered many blended smoothies at the swim up bar and enjoyed them all. The service across the board was fantastic! All of the staff was friendly and really seemed to care that you were having a great time. The pool is great - the kids could find a raft or something and play yet the water was warm enough to just step in and enjoy. The only issue we had was that the pool deck was crowded and guests were definitely reserving chairs (even though the stated policy says this is not allowed). It was hard to get chairs together if we arrived late morning but you would see that many of the "reserved" chairs were left unoccupied for many hours. Oscar the pool concierge was fantastic and you should seek him out because he will help if he can. This was perhaps just too busy a week for him to keep up with the demands. We love this resort and would definitely stay again!
Just wrapped up another amazing trip to Villa La Estancia in Riviera Nayarit -- this was my third trip and my girlfriend's first (a special impromptu trip for her birthday) -- and it was just 100% perfect. Special thanks to Fidel Castro, Enrique Hace and the butler staff for working with me on a number of special requests to make it a birthday to remember, and for nearly every staff to know it was her birthday before our arrival. We were showered with unequivocal attention throughout our visit that certainly went noticed. :) Also thanks to Valcorie, Blanca, Irma, Marisol, Noel and Felix in the Spa for an incredible few treatments of pampering. Hector and Lucio at the Pool Bar; Oscar at the Towel stand; Fani, Miguel, Bernardo and Luis at La Casona were all standouts as well. Long and short -- we can't wait to return and plan to be back as soon as possible. Truly a home away from home with world class service and facilities that we always look forward to! Thank you!!!!

Villa La Estancia has a great property and vibe. The beach is long and the sand is great. If you go be sure to look for Oscar at the pool. He really goes the extra mile to make sure you have the right chair.

The property was so well-maintained. The pool area was always clean. Each morning, they would scrub the chairs on the beach and pool, scrub the pool deck, and wipe off everything. The water temp of the pool was perfect- warm but still refreshing. The service was amazing, especially the pool butler- Oscar. He took the time to make a cricket out of a coconut leaf for our young daughter and always greeted us each morning as we arrived at the pool area. She was so touched she insisted on finding him before we left so that she could say goodbye to Senor Oscar. Fresh towels were always available, garbage was quickly removed from tables and chairs, and they supplied several pool toys and floats. The room was large and again, very well-maintained and cleaned daily. We had a few problems with our room safe and our door lock needing to be reprogrammed, but Senor Diego was friendly and quick to respond. We ate at all the restaurants at Estancia and the property next door. Almost every morning Senor Sergio served us at breakfast La Casona, He was so friendly, quick to fill our coffee, and always checked to see we had everything we wanted or needed. Estancia is quiet and more family-oriented; which is what we were looking for. However, their sister resort next door had plenty to offer at night and we were able to use their pool and eat the restaurants (though they are not allowed to come over to Estancia). The food was amazing, especially the special dinner parties they planned for the evening meals. The all-inclusive plan was definitely worth it. We truly enjoyed our trip and would definitely recommend Estancia to anyone. The views were amazing, the beach clean, and just a short hop into Puerto Vallarta if you want to go exploring. We're hoping to return next year.

We had such a fabulous time at this beautiful resort. The people were amazing, the pool and beach were beautiful and our room was really amazing. There is a little town a short walk from the resort with lots of great souvenir shopping and lots to do in the area. You can rent paddle boards & kayaks just a short walk up the beach and there is parasailing near by as well. Food & drinks - especially the food around the pool and beach area were delicious. I highly recommend this resort!!
