What an amazing experience!!! This was our 1st immediate and extended family trip since COVID. Prior to our arrival, Monse the villa conceirge, setup our transportation to and from the villa and made sure any special needs were met. Since my husband and I were celebrating our anniversary she helped me put together something special for our arrival. She even set up all our massages to be done on the property. On our first day there the staff welcomed us with hand towels as we entered the property, which made for a good first impression. Monse, gave us a tour of the house and answered any initial questions or concerns we had. Once we were all settled in, we enjoyed our complimentary house margaritas, quesadillas, and chips & guacamole. The staff was very welcoming, accommodating, and pleasant. I really enjoyed how the fifth floor on up were themed and each room was carefully decorated to reflect each theme. The fifth had a jungle/tropical theme, while the sixth floor had a vibrant Mexico vibe; with a room named after the famous painter Frida Kahlo. The sixth floor common area also had jacuzzi with a wet bar and restroom. My family made sure to take advantage of this great feature, while overlooking the vast view of the beautiful coast of Puerto Vallarta. The seventh floor had a European theme with matching decor in the common area. Views from each one of these floors were all breathtaking. Something each of us couldn't wait to see every morning. My immediate family and I had the pleasure of residing on the fifth floor. My husband and I stayed in Las Orquideas (The Orchid) room, which in my opinion was the best room in the entire house. It had its on private wrap around balcony. I absolutely loved waking up each morning with to the 180 degree view of the hillside and the beaches of Puerto Vallarta. My boys stayed in the La Selva (The Jungle) room, which they were captivated by the green colored walls and the leopard picture suspended on the side wall. My youngest marveled at the jacuzzi tub in his room and couldn't wait to take a bath each night. The staff was incredible. There were a few members that made a personal impression. Tony; our server during the day made sure each one of our needs were met. He even made virgin Pina coladas for my boys so they could feel a part of the group while the rest of the adults had Pina coladas. Melana, the house chef made wonderfully tasting food that was nicely presented. My personal favorite was the French toast. This might be a biased opinion since breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. I loved the French toast so much I asked her for the recipe. Felix, the family favorite, was our server, security, and bartender. I will never forget how he remembered that my eldest really loved the dinner rolls. During our first dinner there my eldest kept asking for more dinner rolls. The following night while we were all snacking on late night sandwiches Felix warmed up a few rolls for my son to eat. The look on my sons face was priceless. He looked so shock and happy to see his favorite bread wrapped in a towel warmed up. Felix attention to detail made a lasting in impression on my son for the rest of the trip. Last but not least Yvonneka, the villas owner. It was a pleasant surprise to receive a call from her on our first and last day of our trip. She wanted to make sure we were enjoying ourselves and that all was well. It's an interesting thought, how something like a simple call to check-in would make a world of a difference. I've never received a call from any big change hotel owner much less the hotel manager asking how my stay was going. This villa truly offered first class service and experience starting from the top all the way down. My family never wanted to leave the villa, but then again why would you. In addition to the infinity pool and 2 jacuzzis this villa offered a game room which had something for everyone; an air hockey machine, card game table, arcade 1up with over 200 video nostalgic games, a karaoke machine, a Nintendo Switch, and my boys favorite; a pool table. We created some wonderful memories in this room. There's a reason why Casa Yvonneka was rated #1 in Puerto Vallarta. They offered more than just a beautiful villa with breath taking views, they offer a first class experience to each one of their guests. Thanks again to all the staff for making our trip a memorable one. We look forward to making this our yearly family vacation spot.…
We had one of the most amazing trips of our lives in Puerta Vallarta at Casa Yvonneka. We were there to celebrate my husband’s 50th Birthday. We with 21 of our closet friends created memories to last for a lifetime at Casa Yvonneka. In the past 24 years, we have had some of the most amazing vacations around the world and our stay at Casa Yvonneka definitely is one of our most favorites!! Having been to PV only once for a port of call on a cruise, we wanted to see why so many of our friends had fallen in love with PV. We turned to Dream Vacations who connected us with Sue Matthews at Villas of Distinction. Sue is an expert in helping you choose the perfect villa to match your wants, needs, and dreams!! There was no doubt in any of our minds, that Casa Yvonneka was the perfect match for us. Then we had the most pleasant assistance from Miriam Cuevas, Villa Concierge, who assisted us in everything from preparing our grocery list to answering all of our questions about the Villa and our trip. Miriam had arranged for Blanca Betancourt to be our local Concierge who would assist us from the time we arrived at the villa and until we left. We could not have been placed in any better hands than Blanca’s. When we arrived at Casa Yvonneka, to say that we were blown away would be an understatement. This beautiful 20,000 sf villa overlooking Zona Romantica was stunning to say the least. We had 12 of the 14 available rooms in this beautiful well-appointed villa. Blanca met us as we arrived at the Villa. She is absolutely amazing to work with!! She introduced us to the heart of the villa, the staff, Ari, Felix, Lalo, Malena, Mari, Rosie, and Tony. Within minutes, these strangers had become our friends and went out of their way to accommodate anything that we needed. The food, the drinks, the smiling faces, their directions and recommendations made our stay so wonderful. Be it cocktails by the pool, late night snacks after a night out on town, the extra one or two alcohol runs, or last-minute changes to the menu, they made it happen!! And a very big thank you to the Villa’s owner, Yvonneka Kalman, who not only called to check in with us during the beginning and end of our stay, but she also made sure that Birthday celebration dinner was extra special!! Fair warning….you will never want to leave the affinity pool and the spectacular views especially at night when the fire works are going off over the city. We are so grateful that we got to celebrate this milestone birthday in such a beautiful villa with an amazing staff in what has become one of our most favorite vacation destinations!!!…
Had the most wonderful time staying at Casa Yvonneka with my family. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The food was phenomenal. The view was breath taking! I will definitely be staying here again.
Vacationing at Casa Yvonneka with my family was a positively exceptional experience that I will always remember. Every aspect of this villa exudes 5 star qualities from the property itself and it’s amenities to the staff & the services they provide. Looking forward to returning next year with even more family to kick back……chill and enjoy.
OMG This is What I Call A Little Bit Of Heaven / Paradise . We Were Guest of my Daughter in Love and Son Celebrating There Anniversary. This Villa Is 5 Stars 🌟 The Whole Place is Beautiful the View Was Breathtaking. The Staff took good care of us. Time When Checked in till the Time when left .Very Courteous, Loving ❤️ We Felt so Blessed . Thanks Yvonneka & Staff for Making Our Stay A Beautiful Story and Memories to Share 😍 Definitely will be Back Blessings 🙌 🙏 ❤️
In June I led a yoga retreat for women of color at Casa Yvonneka with 20 participants and it was an incredible experience. I was recommended this place by a friend who stayed with family and hosting a yoga group was new to them. The entire staff, from the owner to the concierge were incredibly accommodating and did everything they could to make our stay top tier. Chef staff catered mostly plant-based meals, they rearranged the pool area to ensure we had space for daily yoga and housekeeping refreshed our rooms every day. We enjoyed it so much that we're hosting a second retreat in October. Thank you so much for everything, we can't wait to come back!
Everything about our experience at Casa Yvonneka was magical. The resort is the perfect blend of luxury and comfort. The interior design and appointments feel very high-quality and luxurious and reflect the tastes and personality of Mexico and Yvonneka herself. No expense is spared and there is clearly a focus on making the experience of staying there a pleasant and memorable one. I will note that between the infinity pool, hot tub, and the game room, Casa Yvonneka kept our whole family (including a teenager!) wonderfully entertained for the entirety of our stay. I can’t say enough about the staff – they are consummate professionals at what they do, while at the same time making it feel like we were staying with family. Everything from the wonderful meals and drinks that they prepared to every guests’ liking – including making accommodations for allergies – to maintaining the facilities impeccably, giving advice on locations to visit, and being there to share the experience and a smile or a laugh. They were always so attuned to my family’s needs. Thank you to the entire team at Casa Yvonneka for making this vacation so incredibly wonderful! We can’t wait to visit Puerto Vallarta and to see you again! It’s with a smile on my face that I recall our stay. I know my entire family would agree when I say we recommend Casa Yvonneka wholeheartedly!…
OMG.... I don't know where to start. Casa Yvonneka is the best villa in Puerto Vallarta. This is my family second time there and both times I was married there. Yvonne. Shannon, Teresa and Blanca were all fabulous and easy to work with. The staff is outstanding and irreplaceable. The were quick to respond to any need I had prior to arrival as well as during and after my stay. The owner Yvonne called several times to see if there was anything we needed from her!!!! I could go on and on about this villa and its staff, but if you want to experience the best time of your life in Puerto Vallarta then stay at Casa Yvonneka O will be going back again!!!!!!
The single most enjoyable hotel stay my family has ever experienced. Casa Yvoneka is an art museum with an infinity pool overlooking beautiful Puerto Vallarta. The sunsets are divine. But all that beauty pales when compared to the care provided by the wonderful people who work there. The food is superb. I would gladly return just for the food. Leaving to return home was suprisingly difficult and emotional. More like saying goodbye to family than checking out of a hotel. I hope I can return someday.
What an amazing experience at Casa Yvonneka! The house was perfect for a large group celebration. The staff went above and beyond our expectations, very clean amenities and the food and drinks were top notch each day as we were greeted with the most friendly smiles. I would highly recommend Casa Yvonneka in beautiful Puerto Vallarta. We can't wait to come back!
