This 5 star hacienda boasts peace, tranquility and comfort all wrapped into a little piece of paradise. If you want quiet, except the sound of tropical birds and fishing boats putting by, this is for you. A diamond in the rough not a far walk from the beach or town and then there is Barb and Barry! The most gracious,... More

There is an amazing, warm, clean pool and the suites are awesome! There's an outdoor kitchen you can cook in if you want to stay in. Beautiful view of the canal and you can watch the sun set/rise from the roof! The hostesses (Barry and Barb) were so polite and had great advice about what resturants to go to and... More

In 2014, my husband and I stayed a week at Villa Santa Barbara before moving to another place where we had stayed for many years. We liked it so much, we decided to spend our whole vacation (5 weeks) at VSB in 2015. We are so happy we did. On arrival, our kitchen was stocked with a delicious meal, beer,... More

If you are planning to visit Barra de Navidad, then I would recommend staying at Villa Santa Barbara. Our week long stay in the penthouse was a wonderful way to begin our three month travels. Since we were arriving late, our hosts, Barbara and Barrie, thoughtfully stocked the fridge with an evening meal. Our early morning routine soon became lounging... More

We spended three days and four nights in Villa Santa Barbara with friends and our dogs and just had many relaxing hours. The suites are so lovely kept and decorated that you feel at home from the first moment on. The King size beds are very confy, specialy for lazy back's... The highlight was to go to the beach and...

Our Hosts, Barry and Barb were amazing and so accomodating to our every need. Anything from arranging spa day beside the pool to hiring our own personal chef to cook us and our guests an authentic Mexican Meal. We were two couples, renting the two bedroom Penthouse suite and it was roomy, clean, private and very cozy - honestly it... More

We just returned from staying a month with Barb and Barry. We met them last summer after staying at their other property in Gibsons B.C. (also fantastic) and they "convinced" us to come to Barra this winter. Ha! We were pushovers, and anyone who has stayed here would know why. The property is just great; tastefully furnished, on a canal... More

We spent a week at Villa Santa Barbara and couldn’t have been happier. We love the area and have stayed in quite a few hotels/houses. VSB is by far our favorite place in Barra de Navidad. The suites are beautiful, actually nicer than the pictures. Barb, Barry, and Dora helped as much as we needed, and left us alone when... More
