Reviews for Villa La Estancia - Riviera Nayarit
The service was awesome and the beach and resort was just beautiful. The resturaunts were delicious and the room service was so helpfulā¤ do wish there were more activities at the hotel though. Otherwise, would definitely come back
We spent 6 days in early May here, apparently that is the slow season. It was wonderful. This is a resort/condo, units are owned. We stayed in unit 2502 A, owned by George, heard he's from where we are from, Seattle. The condo is a one bedroom, maybe 1200 sq ft, large bathroom, living room, and large bedroom. It has a full kitchen. We chose all inclusive, our first time doing that. It was good, drinks are a little weak, we learned to ask for doubles. There are two restaurants, one at the pool and one off the front lobby. Raul and Oscar at the pool bar are great. Always keeping you with food or beverage. The Baja Tacos are fantastic. La Casona is the second restaurant, we would have breakfast and dinner there. Though the steaks were not great, the rib eye so fatty could not eat it, the french onion soup and pasta were wonderful. The wine list could use upgrading. Andres the bartender just achieved his Level 1 Somm, he is a delight. Enzo, Miguel, Marlene and Fani are as good as they come. Friendly, helpful, and willing to teach us spanish words each day. It was very windy when we were there, causing the water to be a little rough. The beach is nice, nice long walk to a small town, Bucerias, 30 minute or so walk from the La Estancia. La Estancia is about a 25 minute cab ride to the heart of Puerta Vallarta. We did a little day trip there, sat on the beach and had lunch. Overall, Villa La Estancia is a lot quieter than the sister property next door. TIP:do not go through the time-share (they will not call it time-share) pitch, lasted 2.5 hours, we were told it was only 75 minutes. Overpriced, and if you decline they toss you out like garbage. The only problem beside the time-share thing, was the key card to the room. There is a front gate to the entrance then your front door, for double security. Both gate and door we continually had trouble with in opening with the key card. We went to the lobby 4 times to get a new card. Apologies and offers to help were given. But that was not convenient to not know if you can get in your room or not. Good stay, good people, good location, we'll be back.

This place is gorgeous, great location and amazing rooms BUT when we got there our room wasn't ready. We waited for it to get cleaned. When we went to bed that night it looked like someone had sex all over the bed on the bedspread and inside the bed. Housekeeping called (explained what we needed)and someone came empty handed. Had to leave and get sheets, when they came back queens sheets for a king bed. Made the best of it as we were tired (despite the new sheets also had a few spots of blood on them). Next day went to talk to mgt they were not helpful since we booked with an owner not the hotel. Talked to mgt on that side of things. Nothing was done for us what so ever (except the two bottles of champagne that was delivered to us out by the pool.... by the CONDO OWNER NOT the hotel for the problem with check in). They said since we went thru the condo owner and not the hotel there was absolutely nothing they could do for us. Mind you the problem was not with the condo but with the cleaning of he condo and that is the responsibility of the whole hotel (not the condo owner). We discussed and argued for two days and NOTHING! Then they came to us and said they were giving us an upgrade... after a few more minutes of talking we found out that the condo owner was so angry and upset by all of this that HE was giving us the upgrade NOT the hotel. Mind you we did not take it as it was not his fault and he should not have paid for it. NOTHING, NADA, NILCH was done for us. I love Mexico so very much and will go back but they don't do things down there like in the States. They could have easily given us an upgrade, happens all the time in the states. That is what you do to makes things right when your cleaning screws up. I will never stay here again tho.

Just completed 10 days in paradise. The Villa/Condo was by far one of the best that we have ever stayed at in the world. 2 BR. 3 Bath. Suitable for the 4 of us, useable for up to 8. Kitchen was well equipped to handle your favorite meals/snacks. Local dining was great as well. First trip to PV, but have been to many places in MX. as well as South America, Asia, US, Canada. The staff was outstanding in every respect; Oscar at the pool is an amazing guy, when he tells you to ask him... he has the answers. If you prefer to stay home and cook, the MEGA (store) is a 1 mile walk or a cheap 5$ I think cab ride. The driver will let you out and not wait, there is a Taxi station outside, easy to get a ride back. There is a small well stocked convenience store in the sister property next door. They don't have everything, but you can survive quite well if you don't want to travel. The ocean is somewhat on the rough side, I would not recommend the beach here, for swimming, from what I saw, unless very experienced. This I am sure is seasonal, but we are certified divers and have been in watersEast, /west and elsewhere. The pool and the 4 hot tubs are great, some restricted to adults. There are Massages available at the resort, we opted for some on the beach a little to the north of the resort. VERY NICE and the $ was way less than the resort. Go early, limited sanitation. This resort is owned, not a time share, not a spring break place, nobody wants that there! If you want to go relax and enjoy, bring your manners and I am confident you will have a great experience. If you need help, I would tell you to just ask. I am sure we will be returning at some point....If we don't purchase :)

After staying at it's sister resort (Villa Del Palmar Flamingos) two years ago, we decided to go back, but to upgrade a bit and stay at Villa La Estancia. Resorts are next to each other (more or less adjoining), and are very similar in many ways, but La Estancia is a bit more upscale, and definitely quieter, less busy, more adult-oriented. Villa Del Palmar is mostly time-shares, so they hit you HARD with the sales, which is very annoying. La Estancia is 30% owners, and the rest hotel suites, so no sales at all. The customer service is AMAZING, and every single staff member does his/her best to accommodate every guest. In particular, Hector & Luis, at the pool bar & restaurant, and Oscar (pool butler) were amazing. Very kind, helpful and attentive. It's easy to tell they love their jobs, are treated well by the resort, and thoroughly enjoy their jobs, meeting new people all the time. We went the first week of May, which is their slowest season, so there were only a few other vacationers while we were there - literally. Villa Del Palmar was definitely busier, and more happening at all times than La Estancia. We were also told that La Estancia is quiet after 6pm, to accommodate owners. No music or activities, etc. If you want daytime and evening activities, you go next door, where they have a plethora of stuff to do. The weather was great - 85 F and sunny every day, but never too hot. La Estancia's grounds are very clean & beautiful, and perfectly maintained in every place. Very much looks like a five star resort. Also, beautiful beach, and plenty of beach chairs (although only a few umbrellas, and no trees or shade). There are two restaurants here - breakfast & dinner at the lobby/outdoor restaurant, and lunch at the pool bar, also serving the beach. It was definitely good to be able to go next door to eat at the buffet (bfast, lunch or dinner), and/or at the restaurant on the beach (serving the pool, beach, and Italian dinners). I heard there is also a Sports bar, but no one ever went, and we really never saw it. Couple of small negatives: 1) We needed shade most of the time; we were able to find it at the pool, but only when we combined 3 or 4 umbrellas over us (which, if we weren't the only ones at the pool much of the time, would be a problem). It'd be nice if they had more shady spots/trees. The majority of the day, the entire pool was in the sun, which limited us a bit, since we burned the first day, and needed some shade from then on. 2) Although the rooms were great, and of course every single room has a great view and balcony, the beds were not great (hard/flat), and the pillows were pretty bad - all very skimpy. We actually requested 8 more pillows (so had a total of 12 to choose from), but none was great. Also, the sheets/blankets were very skimpy and not luxurious in the least. Overall, we gave this resort
