The house is amazing with incredible views. The staff was great, Roberto and Pedro were wonderful. The only issues were very poor Wi-Fi, and be aware the house manager, Christian, will fleece you on the way out the door with very high service fees. Just make sure you review the final invoice carefully.

Where do I even begin!? Villa Balboa is AMAZING! My husband and I stayed there for 8 days with 10 of our closest friends. Booking was easy and secure and the villa’s GM, Cristhian, did a wonderful job explaining everything in great detail. The villa itself is in a great location; about 10 minutes’ drive from downtown PV, Cliffside overlooking... More

The most perfect 5 days ever! The house is incredible, but the staff even outshine the setting. Totally worth the cost! We spent a day on a water taxi going snorkeling & visiting Yalapa, and another day at the botanical gardens but we could have stayed at the house the entire time and enjoyed every minute!

My (now) husband and I got married there and our families stayed in the Villa Balboa for a week, and it was the coolest thing any of us have EVER done! The pictures (though amazing) don't do the house justice, it is even more fantastic and beautiful and bigger than in the pics. But despite the incredible house and VIEW... More

Villa Balboa was beyond our wildest dreams! Seventeen friends and family spent 7 nights in absolute paradise June 15-22, 2011. The staff was over the top! Chui was our chef and we are all thanking him for the extra pounds we put on!! We only wished that we could have brought them all home with us! If we were to... More

Getting to Puerto Vallarta from San Francisco, California was very easy, and staying at Villa Balboa allowed my family and I to completley enjoy every aspect of this wonderfully cultural city. The villa is very close to town, making it easy to access the lifestyle, art, history, cuisine, etc. at the drop of a hat. Taxis were always available to... More

The entire trip was wonderful. The atmosphere of Villa Balboa lead to a very productive trip. We were able to enjoy ourselves, relax, and take in the local flavor of Puerto Vallerta. Can't wait to schedule my next trip.

The rooftop gardens, the atrium, the decor, the custom furniture and artwork, the movie theatre, the kitchen, the infinity pool, the private hot tubs off of the master suites, and not to mention THE VIEW. This place is amazing. I Highly recommend this house, as you won't be dissapointed. Very close to old town without having to tolorate the noise... More

We arrived at the villa in the midst of a heavy rain, which is highly uncommon for this time of year I am told. the villa had a very elegant yet understated entrance, and we had been traveling for a long time to get there, once we came in through the front entrance, we were dumbstruck to see the 180...

I was lucky enough to be invited for getaway weekend at the Villa Balboa last Friday. My friend Harriet said I needed a little RnR and this would be the perfect place. She, was right (as she usually is). We were greeted upon arrival with mandarin mojitos, prepared by Chef Cristhian who also served us and the other guests a... More
