We have just arrived home from an extremely enjoyable holiday at the Villa Estancia. As many have mentioned, this is the ideal resort for anyone wishing to just relax and enjoy the peaceful, beautiful setting and super friendly service of all the staff. It seems that everyone goes above and beyond to ensure you are happy and enjoying your stay. We ended up feeling like we were leaving friends when it was time to return home. From the comments of the others guests, especially the "regulars", we understand this to be the norm.
We had the studio room with AI plan, which worked well for us. The food was the best we have experienced so far on Mexican holidays. The trade off might be the limited entertainment and variety of restaurant choices. This did not pose a problem for us, as we were seeking a quiet location and not party central. We were able to walk to Bucerias a couple of days and did have one dinner there, but were happy to return to the resort.
We preferred the buffet breakfast at the Flamingo, as there was always lovely fresh fruit, yogurts, made to order omelettes/eggs, waffles, and cappuccinos. The time share people could be considered entertainment or nuisances, depending how you view them, but they are not to be seen on the Villa Estancia side, only the Flamingo. We also tried the Italian restaurant at the Flamingo for afternoon pizza, which was quite good, and for 2 dinners, for variety, but our general preference was the more refined restaurant off the lobby La Casona, and a nice fruit plate at pool side restaurant at the Villa Estancia side.
As I mentioned, the staff are the very special part of the resort, We made an off hand remark to the concierge and bell staff that the bed was a bit firmer than we liked. Right away, they picked up the phone and had housekeeping put a foam topper on the bed and deliver different choices of pillows to ensure we were comfortable. They were always asking how we were doing and was everything okay and more often than not addressing us by name. We had lots of fun with several of the staff as they tried desperately to help us improve our very limited Spanish. We hope to return one day for another holiday.
