This is the place for a true gay vacation destination (not just gay-friendly). The quality of this Mexican Mansion is top-notch and nothing else really compares to it. I have stayed at other places and they do not have high standards or are no longer in business. What I enjoy here is the atmosphere of actually living in a traditional... More

This was my first trip to Puerto Vallarta. I selected Villa David based on the reviews here on TripAdvisor and also on the recommendation of a friend who used to live in PV. I could not have been happier! The owner, Bill, provided me with very detailed instructions about how to get a taxi at the airport. He also warned... More

Sadly, no good deed goes unpunished. This young man had been to the guesthouse once before about five years ago as the guest of an older gentleman and at the time he seemed very nice. I knew of the place he worked in Acapulco and we had a mutual friend. He gives massage for a living and wanted to relocate... More

I came here with a couple of friends on a recommendation from one who stayed there last year. It was perfect for the type of vacation we wanted - a comfortable place to stay in the old part of the city, a little oasis to relax without the busyness of a big resort, and a comfortable environment. The B&B is... More

After we were married at San Francisco City Hall, we came to Puerto Vallarta for our honeymoon, and Villa David was the perfect place to stay. Luxurious yet affordable, it's a marvelous hacienda created by Bill and David, with wonderful architectural details, and decorated beautifully. The three floors of rooms surround a courtyard with a swimming pool, landscaped with enormous... More

This B & B, close to restaurants, galleries, and a short walk to the beach, bars and clubs, has been a favorite for the past 10 years. Owners Bill and David could not be nicer and the staff members are amazing and special people. The view of the sunsets over the bay after a swim in the pool is the... More

This was the second time we've vacationed at Villa David and could not have been happier!! Bill and his staff are warm and accommodating. The facility is older but very well maintained. Even more amenities since the last time we visited including fridges and safes in the room as well as a new hot tub. Will most certainly be staying... More

Everything about Villa David works together to make your stay on Mexico an excellent experience. The rooms and common areas are spotless and well kept. The staff is helpful but unobtrusive. You feel right at home in the genuine exotic surroundings. Breakfast every morning is delicious, ample, and a great occasion to meet the other guests. The location is perfect,... More
