“A very special place!”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

We stayed at the Villa Azalea for two nights recently, and were delighted by the hospitality and so impressed by the hard work and imagination that has gone into this property. The setting is wonderful, with a small river tumbling down the mountainside at the lower edge of the garden. The main villa contains both public spaces and private rooms and suites. All beautifully decorated, clean, and comfortable - justifiably luxury accommodations. The grounds and gardens are extensive, beautifully laid out, and planted with a huge variety of fruit trees, many of them labeled.
There are three large shade houses where a wide variety of organic vegetables and herbs are cultivated.
Those fruits, vegetables and herbs show up immediately for your pleasure in the form of blended drinks, refreshing mint water, and delicious meals. Our table was set in a new and interesting location for each meal. When we decided to make an expedition to the beach, a picnic lunch appeared within minutes.
Dulce, the owner, noticed our interest in Mexican cuisine, and suggested that she arrange a cooking class for us with a chef/instructor. This several hour cooking extravaganza happened in Villa Azalea's outdoor kitchen, using beets, avocados, herbs, nopales and many other ingredients grown on the grounds. The gracious Chef Wendy was an excellent teacher. We made three amazing dishes - our best ever cooking class experience.
We highly recommend the Villa Azalea. It is easy to get there from Puerta Vallarta, and the mountain setting makes an invigorating change from the beach hotels. The only way you could get a better value for your luxury hotel dollar would be if there were more hours in the day. We didn't even have time to sit by the pool, explore the grounds, eat all that good food. Thank you to Dulce and her staff for the wonderful service, and for sharing the rich and beautiful environment you have created.

What a beautifull place! It's a lovely boutique hotel, surrounded by organic fruit and vegetable gardens. We went to take a tour of the grounds and were taken and shown around by the owner herself. There is a fantastic array of fruit trees. There is also a creek running thru the back of the property, that is suitable for swimming. The hotel is modern, and decorated with great works of art, sculptures as well as paintings. They have a gift shop with homemade jams and their own brand of tequila. As a guest you can pick whatever fruits and vegies you want and the kitchen will prepare them for your meal. They also offer cooking classes. You can stay at the hotel and enjoy all the ammenaties or get a day pass and spend the day, or even just come for a tour of the grounds and the property for a nominal fee like we did and that also includes a fabulous homemade refreshing drink.

My husband and i spent the weekend here recently to celebrate our 5th Anniversary. Wow! What an amazing place. We were first surprised how easy it is to get to from Puerto Vallarta. It is only two kilometers south of the Botanical Gardens. We drove but you could take the El Tutio bus there as well. The grounds are gorgeous. We were met by Dulce who was very welcoming. She showed us to our suite (STUNNING!) and then offered us a fresh lime water with basil. Delicious! We were then showed around the grounds and organic farm and then brought to the "outdoor" kitchen for cooking classes with her chef, Wendy. We were able to pick some fruits and vegetables to use in our creations. We learned how to make fresh cheese- salsas: A delightful roasted chile sauce from Acapulco that we used on check wrapped in banana leaf and rosa mole that we used for our salmon. We also learned how to make a nopal salad to use with our fresh cheese.The class was very well planned and lunch was fabulous. Even my husband, a non-cook loved it!

Later we went back to our room which was gorgeous. Super clean, large and comfy. Big walk-in closet, flat screen TV with HUGE video library, beautiful art all over, in our room and throughout the hotel and media room. The bathroom was very nice with great amenities (no hair dryer) and nice linens. The bed....heavenly! Most comfortable bed in Vallarta.

We had a continental breakfast the next morning,. We lounged at the pool and played in the river - later we took a trip to El Tuito for a few hours of wandering, lunch and some shopping. We spent the rest of the day relaxing. We enjoyed two dinners at Villa Azalea. Both were EXCELLENT and we had great wine, Both meals were very romantic and we loved sitting on the balcony and listening to the river, as well as the table inside under the stars, next to the "black pool" and surrounded by art. We cannot say enough about Villa Azalea. It was peaceful, blissful, romantic and the service was outstanding! We highly recommend it to anyone looking for a couple of days away.

We had a guest from Vancouver and thought the drive and the Lechee Festival would be a great out of town experience. As always the drive to the south is spectacular with the water views and the vegetation. On arrival we were greeted by the owner and invited to tour the grounds and the villa. No attention to detail has been overlooked in the design and furnishing of the rooms and the choices in the organic gardens were varied. We loved the concept of being able to choose our own ingredients for the chef to prepare the meal. The afternoon was spent picking lechees and lingering alongside the river drinking the freshly prepared agua frescas. If you are looking for a quiet get away or just a fun day trip we highly recommend a drive out to Villa Azalea.

My wife who happens to be a Filipina heard there was a place with lechees and they have a harvest festival. So we took a drive to see. It turned out to be one of the best afternoons I have spent in Banderas Bay. The grounds are beautiful, the service was polite and competent. The structure is spectacular and as well kept as I have ever seen. This is a place I want to come back to discover and I am ready. You have a first class property and the people that work there are first class too. Congratulations!!!!!

My friend, who is a landscape designer, and I, visited this FABULOUS place in Feb., 2012. We heard about it at the Farmers' Market in Puerto Vallarta and spoke with Dulce and her cousinm Daniel. Upon arrival at the Inn, Daniel gave us his undivided attention while showing us the amazing rooms ( with incredible bathrooms), the kitchen and indoor and outdoor living spaces and the gardens and grounds. What struck us immediately was the total silence when we got out of the car...truly a romantic spot for a very special vacation...so private and stunningly beautiful! We were truly blessed to have been able to spend even a couple of hours here and will definitely go back and maybe even stay! Pam from Canada

We just came back from villa azalea and we have no words to describe how pleasant it was, our suite was great (my wife loved the paintings). the food was delicious because they use their own vegetables to cook the meals (they have an organic farm).
Mr. Good (villa azalea´s owner) is a very nice person, he helped us with everything we needed.
All open areas are lovely.
if you are looking a place to relax and reconnect with your love one, this is the place...
