“In love and can't wait to return”

person found this review helpful

I wholly fell in love with this house, the staff and the overall vibe of Villa Mandarina. My family of 8 stayed here over thanksgiving and we had an experience that can only be described as magical. The surrounding nature was all the entertainment we needed watching giant manta rays jump in the bay below, green parrots perch in the tree outside our balcony, humpback whales swimming by. Snorkeling right off the pier was as far we need to go to see incredible fish. As someone who loves taking photos, I must have taken 2,000, as everywhere you look is just beautiful. Best vacation ever. Miguel's margaritas and micheladas are on point. I can't say enough! Thank you Miguel, Gabriela, Leti, Chebo, Alex, Oscar and the rest of the amazing people there!! We can't wait to return next Thanksgiving (hopefully sooner)

“23 people did not have to think about a thing!”
Reviewed November 17, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

We had a large group of 23 last weekend, and the experience was wonderful. The entire team took excellent care of us. Between Lety, Miguel, Reyes, Oskar and Chebo the chef & sous chef (apologies on not remembering name) taking care of our every need, we did not have to think about a thing. It was relaxing to just sit by or stay in the pool and look out over the ocean. Saw quite a few manta rays jumping out of the water as well as tropical fish. Jumped off the pier many times and swam in the ocean. Also did kayaking. Rooms were clean and the property was beautifully landscaped. Every meal was served on time as planned and tasted great with good variety. Reyes made sure we had drinks in hand by the pool. We also had two one-hour yoga sessions with Miguel (different from above) for a majority of us, and it was beautiful in the morning shade/sun.

“5 Stars”
Reviewed November 10, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

Perfect place for vacation groups, or business and yoga retreats. Lots of privacy combined with top notch service, accommodation and fantastic food servings. Without any doubt one of the best destinations in the entire Banderas Bay.

“The Perfect Escape!”
Reviewed August 3, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Our group of 10 had an incredible time at this villa for a week. Located about 20-30 minutes down the road from the center of Puerto Vallarta, each of our 10 bedrooms was unique with personal touches in every detail. The staff was always helpful and available when we had questions, were very accommodating to our daily schedules for meals, car services, laundry and other activities. To say we loved the food is an understatement - everything was incredible, and there was always plenty of it!

“Seaside Sanctuary”
Reviewed March 5, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

The perfect getaway for a large group of family or friends. This is a beautiful cliff side grouping of villas offering a wonderful opportunity to relax and indulge. Even with 19 other friends, there were always private spaces to escape to when needed. The individual villas were all unique and open to the outdoors with dreamy views of the bay. Gabriela was always delightful and Miguel provided any of your needs with a gracious smile. I relished the hand-crafted cocktails, amazing ceviche and gourmet meals. In a heartbeat I would book another stay and not change a thing.

Where to start! Amazing place. Each room is top notch, unique and just feels right. There's so many places to hang out, explore, from down by the sea to up high with amazing views. The staff is top notch as well, from chefs to cleaning. What a delight. Would love to live there!!!

“Just Perfect.”

Villa Mandarinas was the perfect setting for my husbands 50th birthday celebration! We rented out the full 10 bedrooms for seven nights for a group of 19 people. The photos and video on the website are beautiful, but still didn't truly express how large and stunning the property really is. You will definitely get in a work out just exploring the grounds and waterfront, which includes many steps. All of the bedrooms are equally great, each with their own unique features and decor. We thoroughly enjoyed the Black room, which was perfect for the birthday boy! While the property is a little far from the hustle and bustle of downtown PV, it does provide a tranquil setting and really beautiful, unobstructed views of the Bay of Banderas, Los Arcos and the surrounding landscape. The staff was very attentive to our needs, especially Rocio, Gaby and Miguel, leading up to and throughout our stay. We did lots of preplanning over the course of the last 8 months, so the week in Puerto Vallarta was incredibly easy, relaxing and fun for all of our guests, all while the staff executed the plan. I am very grateful for their help in pulling together a really special birthday dinner, which included a special table set up for 24 guests overlooking the water, delicious seafood feast, custom designed birthday cake and surprise performance by two fire dancers. It was a really spectacular week, one that we will never forget. Muchas gracias for todo!
