Vallarta Gardens, A Boutique Private Residence Club
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 21, 2009

I stayed at Vallarta Gardens Resort & Spa with my wife, children and extended family. Everyone had a wonderful time during our week stay. The staff was great and extremely friendly. The villa we stayed in was truly luxurious and the panoramic views of the ocean were truly amazing. The kids has a wonderful time using the pool and building sand castles by the water. We hired a private chef for 2 nights and enjoyed a lobster dinner in the comfort of villa. I give Vallarta Gardens Resort & Spa 5 stars in every category. I will be looking forward to taking my family back for Spring Break!!

The Residence Club at Vallarta Gardens is a secluded, private club situated in Riviera Nayarit, just north of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. I rented a four bedroom villa for two weeks so that I could invite friends to golf, kayak, jet ski and tour the northern areas of Nayarit . The web site for Vallarta Gardens created a great deal of excitement for us; but more importantly was the fact that the five star facility far exceeded our expectations!
The Front Office Manager and concierge made arrangements for our rental car from Gecko Automobile Rental in nearby Bucerias. They were far super superior to American based rental agencies both in price performance and services.
Upon arrival, the concierge greeted us at our villa which overlooked the beach and Bay of Banderas. He proceeded to give us a guided tour of our “home” and to describe the amenities available to us. He was always present to minister to our needs, make recommendations for activities and touring, reservations at local restaurants, and provide the best services I have encountered in traveling worldwide. The entire staff, both management and service staff, were accommodating, gracious and efficient!
Dinners at the Gardens were prepared bay side and while the menu is somewhat limited, every dish was done to perfection.
The recreation was managed by a super sportsman who provided tutorials and guidance for kayaking and jet skiing to those of us who were novices, and giving tips to the “experts” among us. The weather allowed us to take advantage of all the outdoor activities available at the resort.
The proximity of several golf courses within one half hour of the Gardens enabled us to play at 4 courses, all of which were beautiful and well manicured, not to mention that the rates were discounted 10-30% ! Vista Vallarta Golf Course is located in the mountains and was the most scenic of the 4 courses we played.
You can enjoy the sports, the beach and the in-house and local restaurants with or without the benefit of private transportation. Our group opted to use a rental car for 10 of the 15 days to enable us to tour and shop in Puerto Vallarta and explore the near-by towns of Punta Mita and Sayulit. Our days without a car were spent at the club or walking into La Cruz and spending time enjoying the marina, yacht club, and restaurants.
The Vallarta Residence Club facilities exude beauty, privacy and comfort for the discriminating traveler .

I must say I was skeptical at first as I never tried a Luxury vacation Villa before. I was convinced by sister in law to try it and I must say it was really incredible quality time. This place was absolutely incredible and I would say i will definitely suggest this to others who don't want to the typical hotel scene but also don't want to miss the services of a resort. It was truly the best of all worlds. The chef's were awesome as they cooked for us at our villa while we did a late afternoon pool party. We were just minutes from Puerto Vallarta but we didnt need to have all the crowds bother us

We loved staying at Vallarta Gardens! The second we arrived we were greeted by the general manager and our private concierge. Everyone was very courteous, friendly and attentive. Our villa was very spacious and elegant-views were breathtaking! The private beach and pool areas were nice as well. We both had Spa treatments that were great. Oceanfront gym is a nice touch. In all, a top-notch resort & spa. Highly recommended.
