Stayed with a group of birders for two nights. Beautiful house decorated with lots of great art. Room was large and airy with a very comfortable large king size bed. Excellent breakfasts and very good evening meals with organic produce from the garden and local farms. Loved it!
Booked this b&b not realizing it was outside of Puerto Vallarta. One of my best mistakes. Room was really nice. Food was wonderful. All organic. If you want to explore the area you will want to rent a car. For us it was two nights of tranquility! Beautiful spot with a sandbar in the river with beach chairs on it. They brought out a light lunch for us (very nice surprise). They are super friendly and go to great lengths to make sure you are comfortable and want for nothing. Wonderful people. We visited in February for two nights until we could get into our all inclusive. If we go back to this area we will be staying at Villa Azalea for a week! I am a pretty picky eater and I loved everything they served. As far as I am concerned this place was one of the top things about our whole trip. It is a ways out of PV though. We paid an extra $50 for a taxi to take us out there. It is soooo worth it in the end though.…
This is a hidden treasure located just outside of Puerto Vallarta. We stayed here by chance when other hotels were not avaliable but it quickly became our favorite! The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated, as well as impecably clean. The location is a hidden paradise and very quiet and romantic. The staff attended to our every need and the included breakfast was 5 star as well!
My boyfriend and i were there and we had the most romantic vacations ever. The people is amaizing they're really friendly and helpful with the recomendations to go arround Vallarta, so if your look for the perfect get away we really recomend it oh plus the food is great so much teaste.!!!
Visiting this place has been wonderful, being able to interact with nature this amazing, the sound of the river allows one to enter into total relaxation, the attention and food are a whole give. Since arriving at the place of the customers welcomed by its people, ideal to rest and recharge energy. You have all the amenities, the rooms are amazing all the very nice decorations. And is very close to puerto vallarta about 25 minutes.. Thank you very much.
A friend of mine raved about the place so three of us went there for the tour and lunch. I loved the part of picking your own salad greens and vegetables. As a former organic farmer myself, I was impressed with their organic operation. We did not stay overnight, we were there just for lunch. Dulce was a gracious hostess and tour guide, the place lovely, the food was delicious, the green drink was fabulous, and the overall experience very positive. The only negative is I was allergic to the bug repellent (but I'm allergic to most). :) I returned later only to be turned away at the gate. I had not called ahead and they were expecting a large group. :(
I wanted to get away from everything and concentrate on my music. This is the perfect place for that and also for going with your girlfriend. They set up a table for breakfast and dinners right in the river bed when is calm and that is very unique. Love it, hope i can get another week there soon.
When you arrive, you are given insect repellent, which is reportedly "organic," but feels very greasy. We were there in January, and next to nothing was growing in the garden. We had some turmeric in something, but that was it for "organic, locally grown food." A large crowd descends on the place at lunch time, so forget about enjoying quiet time around the pool. The tour guests are noisy, and literally take over the grounds. Forget about gourmet meals, too, as the leftovers from the tour group lunch are served to the guests for dinner, and the food is mediocre at best. Each couple is given something different for dinner, and believe me, Dulce wasn't cooking all day. It is obvious that they are struggling to make ends meet here. We stayed for several nights, and met some very nice people, but overall this place does not measure up, and the food is not as advertised, and very ordinary, unless you like eating leftovers every day. We will not be back…
My wife and I stayed at Villa Azalea in March of 2014 and I'm only just now getting around to signing up for a Tripadvisor account, so I'm backdating this substantially. We had a fantastic time here - not only are the grounds beautiful, the meals each day were diverse and a delight. There are 'Mexican Mojitos' as well, a drink recipe which will change your life - we took a cooking course there and acquired the secret of their creation, and we make them regularly. That might seem like an odd focus for a review, but you don't know until you've tried them. At the time of our stay the wifi was a bit unreliable due to the nature of satellite internet but that may have improved by now - the farm is in the mountains away from the city, and that's the way the technology works. We loved it!…
We booked 3 nights via Expedia three months in advance. With only a few weeks before our visit and during the busy Xmas season Expedia called to say the hotel had overbooked our room and had decided not to honor our reservation. We (and Expedia!) tried calling and emailing the hotel for an explanation but could not reach anyone. Although Expedia found us other accommodations we had paid the hotel $200 for the cooking class and they never gave us a refund or responded at all to repeated voice mails or emails. I finally had to contact my credit card company to stop payment. Book at your own risk.
