We spent three nights here and every part of it was perfect. Our stonehouse was perfect, meals were 5 star. Service was outstanding, thanks Mike and Elliot for making us feel like rock stars, your attention to detail did not go unnoticed. The highlight of this stay was the couples massage, might be the best massage I've ever gotten. The... More

What a gorgeous and unique setting for a wedding! Our family and friends had such a wonderful time! With its different room options, we felt whisked away to paradise. The venue was beautiful with the tropical plants and flowers. The food was delicious and authentic. The staff took such care of all our needs! Verana even found a babysitter to... More

If you want to veg this is your spot but bring a fat wallet. The staff is quite good, the food average or below, and the room old and forgotten. Great views though and you will enjoy the tropical vegitation fauna and flora.

My husband and I traveled to Verana after our New Years Day Wedding in downtown Puerto Vallarta. We had 60 friends and family in town so the 5 days before the wedding were full of events and excursions. We stayed at Hacienda San Angel the night of our wedding and traveled to Verana the next afternoon. Verana could not have... More

The setting is amazing, as so many other reviewers have stated so well. It is a peaceful, wonderful retreat from all things of a modern, busy, harried, frenetic life. Everything just stops when you get there - the text dings, phones ringing, alarms, and all other extraneous noises. You will walk a lot to get everywhere on the property because... More

I wanted to visit Verana since 2006. In turn, when my boyfriend and I were planning a trip to kick-off 2013, I shared this idea for consideration. I wish I didn’t. He became enchanted with the place as I did. Who wouldn’t -- the photos are spectacular. Given the background of Verana’s owners; however, that is to be expected. They... More

This was our fourth visit to Verana. Honestly, each trip gets better than the last. Verana is a unique, special, almost magical destination. We love the fact that there are no TV's, telephones, elevators, walls, air conditioning (at least not in the palapa we stay in). Understandably, this may not be for everybody; the first time my wife suggested it,... More

We stayed at Verana for 6 nights in Feb 2013. We enjoyed our stay and found the views, food, and scenery wonderful. Since all the accommodations are open air, if you are at all squeamish about a few bugs this place is not for you. If you like your vacations hermetically sealed off from nature go somewhere else. Being outside... More

Perched on a hillside with a jaw-dropping view of Yelapa Bay, which itself opens onto the magnificent Banderas Bay, Verana is paradise…for the adventurer who really wants it. Accessible almost exclusively by boat, the resort is surrounded by lush, Jalisco jungle and comprised (at the time of this review) of only ten individual and mostly open-air palapas. Each “house” is... More
