We rented this villa for our family and the family of our daughters best friend as both girls have just graduated high school and will be off to college in the fall.
Everyone enjoyed the location which is just 10 steps from the water and next door to Carlos and Charlie's. We drifted over daily and purchased drinks and became acquainted with the friendly staff. It's a great place for lunch as well. We brought our own snorkeling gear and went daily. One of the guys next door named Diego arranged a snorkeling trip to Columbia Reef for $40/ea. It was 3 hours of fun we saw all kinds of reef life. We all got massages from Alfonso who has a stand next door. Great value!
The pool at the house was clean and well maintained and a welcome option after snorkeling. I enjoyed sitting under the waterfall to cool off. The house staff were wonderful as well, preparing different delicious meals daily and keeping everything squeaky clean. Overall, it's a 5 out of 5 and no complaints. Can't wait to go back!
We have stayed at several villas near San Francisco beach. On this trip we also rented the Villa next door (large group).
The Villa Alegria lends itself to a more private setting rather than an open floor plan. Loved the third floor, beautiful view, private.
Pros: Beautiful beach, bar right next door, shade or sun, rooms are sepated, great staff, cook service is amazing - don't pass it up! Great sunset view.
Cons: Beach club next door - wasn't heard from rooms other than the top floor and there it was loud, started at 8:00 am (for cruise shippers), small pool, no big gathering area for meals, most importantly BRING YOUR OWN SHEETS!! (If the owner's read this...C'mon, new bedding please!) The bedding was disgusting, not b/c of the staff, they work so hard - my guess is owners aren't replacing them. Lastly - if you stay on the top floor, there are 50 steps to get there.
Not sure I'll stay here again, but if it's the only villa avialble, I won't say no.
