We just returned from our daughter's wedding in November 2011 @ Villa Mia. There are no words to describe the phenomenal venue, staff, food and overall experience. The bride's sister also wrote a review and our hope is that other guests will provide insight into their experience as well. Vanina who is the daughter of the owner of the villa and with whom everything was organized was fabulous. She served as our wedding coordinator and we were thrilled with her help and support. We would be remiss, however, if we didn't acknowledge Julian who managed the staff and day-to-day operation of the Villa--Thanks to Julian, Tono and the rest of the staff, all our needs were met. The staff went above and beyond to ensure that every guest was taken care of. The food was wonderful and the cooks and staff catered to whatever request was made--made-to-order omelets (including our health conscious guests egg white omelets!). Our group was large enough that we filled the main villa's 15 bedrooms and we had guests in one of the upper villas as well that had 5 bedrooms. ALL bedrooms had private baths and there were bathroom facilities in the main palapa as well as by the pool. Each bedroom was unique. The housekeeping staff was wonderful--rooms were cleaned each day and the place was immaculate The infinity pool was amazing as was the 16 person hot tub. For our guests staying at the upper villa, they had their own pool & hot tub and staff member so they could relax and have some "quiet time" if they wanted to!.
Our daughter and new son-in-law spent several months communicating with Vanina making sure every detail of our stay was addressed. The pictures on line do not do Villa Mia justice--it's hard to imagine that it could have been more beautiful than depicted on the website--but it was. We hoped that the food and service were all as noted by many reviewers -- and again--everything was beyond our highest expectations. Our guests were able to obtain massages and other spa services right at the Villa. My daughter, the bride, had arranged for hair & makeup professionals to come to the villa the day of the wedding, and that proved to be a very wise decision vs. having to go into Puerto Vallarta on the day of the wedding. As she was pampered with manicure, hair and makeup Julian saw to it that we were served lunch and drinks as we enjoyed all the pre-wedding preparations!
I think you get the picture...Villa Mia is THE NOST fabulous venue we have ever had the pleasure to stay at---what made it even more special was IT WAS ALL OURS...talk about feeling like the rich and famous! Our ONLY regret is that the event and our time @ Villa Mia had to end. We have already been talking about when we can return!
Thank you to Vanina, Julian, Tono, Chicho, and the cooks and the housekeepers, the groundskeepers and to all the staff that I may have neglected to mention for making this one of the most memorable events of our lives. Our time at Villa Mia for our daughter's wedding will be something we will treasure for a lifetime. To all our guests-friends, family and to all the staff--THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for being there and being part of this very special occasion.
