We just loved it! We spent a weekend, My husband and two kids, We felt We where in paradise, enjoyed so much the walk on the river, to listen all different kinds of birds all day long, specially sunrise & sunset, We were impresed of all different kinds of fruit trees they have and We just loved the beautiful & wellcared greenhouses, where We were able to harvest and choose our own salad greens for supper, kids loved to go and see the hens and why not, get few eggs for their breakfast, all in a Beautifull Inn, full of Art, Sculptures, Colours and delicious meals with an "Extaordinary Service to each one of Us"
Thank you very much Dulce & Villa Azalea, We look forward for our next visit!!

Room Tip: We loved the one in front the little black pool..

If you are looking for a place to relax and be pampered far from the madding crowd, come to Villa Azalea. We did, hoping to recuperate under warm, blue, cloudless skies from colds acquired in the relative chill of Northern California, and we couldn't have chosen better.

The proprietor, Dulce Arguero, is a lady of great refinement whose eye and hand are seen in the landscaping, the organic garden, the decor, the hospitality, and, not least, the kitchen. Set beside a flowing stream in the hills along the main road that runs the length of Mexico, the villa is a haven of tranquility, a refuge from the agitated life. We slept in our beautifully appointed suite and dragged ourselves out to the veranda for contemplation of nature. The bird life that can be observed from that viewpoint is quite remarkable - greater kiskadees, tropical and gray kingbirds, and various other flycatchers hawk for insects while orange fronted parakeets, masked tityras, streak backed orioles, yellow winged caciques, great tailed grackles, and bronzed cowbirds feed in the fruit trees, vultures and hawks soar overhead, and green backed herons slip into the low hanging branches by the river. Not forty feet from us hiding in plain view was an eponymously elegant trogon. If you have not had your fill from the veranda, there's the botanical garden just down the road, where there is even a greater variety.

If you are planning to be anywhere near Puerto Vallarta or driving north or south on highway 200 take a day or two to feed your soul. You will not regret it.

My sister and I spent the afternoon at a hands-on cooking class at Villa Azalea. We took the bus from Puerto Vallarta for 22 pesos each way - the inn is just a couple miles past the Botanical Gardens. We were immediately greeted by our host Dulce who is such a sweetheart! Our class began with picking our lunch ingredients from the organic garden located on the gorgeous lush grounds. With veggies in hand we proceeded to the outdoor kitchen where Dulce turned on background music and blended up Mexican Mojitos with the fresh mint we had just picked. Then we moved onto cooking up a pink mole sauce to top off salmon as well as a chile sauce to accompany chicken cooked in banana leaves. Wendy was our cooking chef and I can't say enough about what a wonderful coach she is! The best part came next - sitting down to eat our amazing lunch we had just prepared. After lunch, Dulce toured us around the lovely hotel with it's beautiful rooms and tasteful decor.

Honestly can't think of a better way to spend an afternoon in PV!

We just spent a delightfully romantic one night visit to this little paradise. Dulce the owner of this piece of paradise greeted us with freshly made lime and mint juice, followed by a tour of her organic gardens where we picked our own salad. This was taken to the kitchen to be washed and prepared as the first course of our totally organic Mexican luncheon. Our suite was amazing, ultra modern architecturally, wonderful modern art, two wonderful swimming pools, a river with a waterfall, orchards, marvellous gardens to wander, interestings spaces and places to sit. Dinner under the stars on the terrace outside our room, and the next morning breakfast by the duck pond complete with seven baby ducklings. The food was exceptional, the service too, the whole experience was totally a memory to treasure.

Last week spent the day at Villa Azalea. I love traveling, and grow most of our own produce organically. in CA. Villa Azalea tapped into both of my favorite things! The farm was amazing, tomatoes, lettuce, carrots, onions, asparagus, celery, and herbs. We harvested the produce and they prepared a 3 course lunch for us. Lunch was set up riverside, and began with a crisp flavorful salad harvested by us, followed by a chicken lasagna made with the most delicate pasta that melted in your mouth, filled with spinach, poblano chilies, cheese, and a white sauce, topped off with a dessert a citrus tiaramisu.

The rest of the day was spent exploring the grounds, and relaxing poolside, or riverside or in the hammock amongst the trees. They have chickens, turkey's and a large pond that they raise talapia in. There were a group of Orange Faced Parakeets that were hanging out in the trees on the grounds for most of the afternoon.

Looking forward to staying in the lovely well appointed rooms next Feb. We will definitely be taking the cooking classes in the outdoor kitchen. Hope they will teach us how to make the lasagna!

If you like any of these: comfort, great food, growing food, a birder then this is your paradise.

An enchanting location that is a great getaway from the beaches of Vallarta. Dulce, the owner, greets her guest with a charm and flair that is second to none. Located near the botanical gardens, lunch is a must if you are not staying overnight as we did. Here you pick a salad that you will relish! Be sure to also sample the house tequila....and close off your meal with a keelime pie that will please even the most disconcerting pallet
