Best location in Boca with private beach and dock. Staff was very helpful with reservations and romantic dinner accommodations. Rooms were very clean and the design and plan of the rooms and hotel were amazing.

My husband and I stayed here for a few nights and absolutely loved this place! Built by an architect it has a great way out and each room seems unique and always great views in a perfect setting. The staff is amazing, the food and drinks were great, and the grounds have some nice amenities like kayaks and weights lawns for lounging if you get tired of staring at the water view from the Infinity pool. We just left and already want to go back

We booked 7 nights at the Villa Lala at the last minute. They just had a cancellation and we were able to stay in the Master Suite plus. It turned out to be one of the finest hotel experiences we have ever had. I knew it was special from the minute I drove down the windy cobble-stone drive way. Alba, the manger, greeted us with mango margaritas and took us on a tour of the beautifully manicured grounds. Our room was actually breathtaking, a panoramic view of the ocean and Boca de Tomatlan. Enjoyed many sunsets from the hammock on the side patio or the jacuzzi tub with its own fantastic view. The food and beverage service was delicious and always timely. We enjoyed the fresh fish which was caught by the owner Cachi. He always made us feel at home in his private paradise. Alba and Karen made numerous dinner and water taxi reservations for us and even scheduled a Covid test at the hotel for us. A special shout out to the always gracious kitchen staff as well as Alba and Karen. If you are looking for a unique, out of PV retreat this is the place. We can't wait to return to this one of a kind hotel.

This was the best Vacay ever. Our 3rd time inPuerto Vallarta and the wife and I decided to stay a little bit off of the beaten path, and I am so glad we did. This place is so fantastic that I don't even know where to start. Let's start with the location. A hop skip and a jump from Boca, thos place is not centrally located, but perfectly located if you are trying to get away from the noise of children and tourists, and want to be calmed by the noise of wildlife, waves, and the sound of fisherman boats coming in with todays catch and tonights dinner. The grounds are impeccable and beautiful. The pool, the living room, the residences, everything was just perfect. The staff was great top notch. They knew my name by the second day and I was always greeted with smile and good morning. Paulina and the others were so nice to us and made sure we were helped outh with anything we needed. Imagine waking up and walking downstairs to a HOT cup of coffee, like they knew what time you would be getting up. Looking over the menu and ordering, only to receive the freshest omelette and fresh squeezed OJ, with an extra side of "beacon". When you see the menu you will know what I am talking about. Alva is like "the fixer". She is 3 steps agead of you and she knows what you need before you do. The Queen of Concierge. The Boss of Boca, She orders cabs, she arranges tours, she gets you vaccinated. You name it, she can get it done... With a smile. We felt so at home. I can't wait to go back. I'm going back. I'm craving one of Paulina's Margaritas right now. Also the owner, Cachi. Super cool, super nice and humble. He's like that guy that has the best thing going, but no need to brag, it speaks for itself.

From the moment we arrived both the manager, Alba, and her staff made us feel welcomed and very much “at home”. This small boutique hotel has wonderful food, staff, comfort and fantastic views. With only a handful of rooms, I felt like it was our own private, catered retreat. If you want to come to PV and be away from the thump-thump of Nuevo Vallarta or the downtown scene, and be welcomed by staff that remembers your name and is gracious and welcoming, then look no further! Alba can fill you in all anything you might be interested in doing—take a boat to Yelapa, take a kayak to la playa Colamitas, or just hang out in the pool…plenty of relaxing options. We’re very glad we came and would definitely book here again if our travels bring us back to PV in the future.
