I don't even know where to begin to describe Villa Mia & Staff. We began planning this vacation a year ago and Villa Mia just felt like the right place to celebrate my "over the top" 50th birthday. I shared my 50th birthday celebration with my awesome brother in law Jerry and we couldn’t be more pleased!! We knew we needed at least 13 bedrooms & Villa Mia is huge! We had no idea this place would be so fantastic. We were treated like royalty!! Chicho & Antonio anticipated our every need. They came in early one day to accommodate us and left late every night- without additional charge! They helped arrange transportation for us and kept our food warm when we stayed out late! The chef's successfully carried out all of our requested theme nights (In Mexican style) and the food was wonderful. The housekeepers- particularly Cony, were always available to meet our needs. From washing, folding and ironing our clothes, to creating beautiful swan creatures on our beds; she was top notch. Everyday was a beautiful, refreshing, exciting adventure. Nothing is perfect, but this came very, very close.
On the down side: The property is situated on a very steep hill which can be challenging for elderly and physically challenged guest. We had both & the elevator was broken our entire stay. Despite our begging & pleading, it never got fixed. We refused to let it ruin our vacation, but I’m still following up with the villa management to express our concerns! I think it's also important to mention that you are not allowed to flush your toilet paper. It must be put in a wastebasket that is changed several times a day. That was a little strange, but flushing paper could damage their septic system. We didn’t want to do anything to spoil that wonderful place.
I could go on & on and post hundreds of pictures, but it would just be more about how much fun we had. I’ll save something for my 24 guests to post! We are already working with Levi & Claudia at Luxury Retreats to plan our 2015 vacation! Villa Mia will be a tough act to follow!
