The beginning of the trip wasn't the greatest, i lost my luggage and had no clothes, tip of advice always pack more in your carry on then needed, i never thought it'd happen to me and it did! After we landed and got out of the airport we got a cab which was only 25 American dollars, and at the... More

Okay, so I've been to a lot of Mexican beach hotels in my life, and this was by far the best. End of story. It rightfully deserves the reputation it has as one of the premier hotels in the area. We go to Mexico, as a family, every year for Thanksgiving. We've made it to Puerto Vallarta (and the Villa... More

We recently stayed at the Villas La Estancia in Nuevo Vallarta and were delighted by every aspect of the resort. Our check in was smooth and quick, with a complimentary hand and arm massage! We then were shown to our one bedroom suite, which was beautiful and spacious. It had a full kitchen, living / dining room, two full bathrooms... More

We had the pleasure is staying a week here in December. We booked through Costco and the moment we reached baggage claim the 5 star service began as our driver identified himself and we were escorted to the hotel. Upon arrival we were greeted by name, bags taken, escorted to comfy chairs in the beautiful Libby that overlooks the pool... More

We train our people based on that a component of luxury service is discretion; providing elegant service without being obvious. I appreciate you taking the time to let us know that we hit... More

We were lucky enough to have been moved to this hotel from the one we were supposed to stay at with our golf group. The other property was still under construction. Out of our 15 years traveling to Mexico this by far was the best! There was not one complaint from anyone in our group. The staff, food, accommodations, etc,... More

First, bare in mind that I rarely take time to give any feed-back on tripadvisor. My wife and I just came back from this 5* resort after a one week vacation. You want to know what kind of hotel La Estancia is? I accidently fell in our room and went through the bug screen of the patio door. I totally... More

The Manager of this property should be commended for the top notch performance of his staff. I have traveled to Mexico 15 years for golf trips and this was by far Fabuloso! The rooms are comparable to any Ritz Carlton and the service matches in every way

We stayed at VLE the last week in February for our 4th visit. As always, it was a wonderful week. We go there for the quiet relaxation, and it always delivers. I had communicated with Laura Gonzalez before our trip and she did a fantastic job helping with my request for a higher floor room. We truly want to get... More

When we first saw Brad and Joey Aronsen's online web-site we couldn't believe that what we were seeing was for real. The grounds of Estancia were magnificent and the Aronsen's apartment luxurious. Upon calling to book their apartment, we were told that their condo was already booked for the time that we wanted but that Brad would help us to... More

I've stayed at VLE three times. My most recent stay, this past weekend, there was a huge crowd of golfers that were there too. This once "personalized service resort" went into survival mode of feeding & housing the masses. Not expected for the price I paid or when compared to my previous visits. Even though I paid extra for an... More
