We have always had very good experiences with places we stay in PV, but Villa Azalea really stands out, thanks to hosts Dulce and Santiago. It's about 10 minutes south of the Botanical Gardens, so well away from the busy-ness of town, but still close enough to get to town when you want. At the back of the property there is a small river with a waterfall which you overlook from the terrace and from some of the rooms. Other rooms open onto a sun-lit central courtyard. The whole property is beautifully landscaped, with a profusion of fruit trees. We were in a courtyard room for 2 nights -- the room was very spacious, including separate sleeping and sitting areas, a mini-fridge, flat-screen TV and those lovely waffle-cotton robes and slippers. The rooms are decorated with colourful art, with some quite impressive sculptures in the public areas. While there is no TV, there is a huge selection of DVDs to choose from. Three meals are included with a night's stay -- each one was excellent, and wherever possible made using produce grown in the organic greenhouses on the property. Dulce's soups are excellent; we also had a Chicken Lasagna with poblano and tomatillos that was my favourite entree. Everything was prepared and seasoned beautifully -- my husband is a bit of a salt fiend, but only added it once to something -- this is unheard of, believe me! Home-grown and homemade preserves are served with breakfast. We thought we might go out and do something while there, but it was just so relaxing and comfortable that we stayed put, walking, watching movies, or lounging by the pool. An added bonus for us, travelling with our small dog, is that Villa Azalea is pet-friendly.
