Stayed here with a small group of five so only used 3 of the bedrooms. Four of the bedrooms have a beautiful ocean view. The living space is generous, including a big kitchen, living room and dining table for 14. Plenty of closets and storage and baths. Big patio, nice clean pool, lovely private beach and access to the beautiful warm water for snorkeling. Right next door to the coral prices where we stopped for spa treatments and billards and cocktails and a dinner out. Through the owners we hired a chef for four of the seven days and it was the best thing we planned: Fernando Sanchez who owns a restaurant in town made fantastic meals for us right in the villa, and the cost was very reasonable. I highly recommend him for your stay. Antonia came each day and thoroughly cleaned the house and grounds for us. The only suggestions I would make are to have some of the kitchen pans replaced, as well as a new/better corkscrew and more flatware. Also some better glasses for wine (most were just plastic and I expect the glass ones just need to be replaced due to breakage)

“Great place to stay with friends”

I loved staying at the Villa Princesa! The rooms are spacious and the AC works really well. Adequate wifi for the one person in our party who needed to work remotely. Ocean views for four of the seven bedrooms. The common area - kitchen/dining/living room were large enough that it never felt cramped with 9 of us staying there. Great snorkeling right off the back of the property. And one person in our group even caught a few fish with not that much effort!

A taxi ride for the 2 miles into town costs 60 pesos and usually we didn't have to wait more than a couple minutes to flag down a taxi driving by (if none were already waiting outside the hotel next door). The property has vacant lots on both sides (with lots of iguanas) so it's very quiet.

“Home away from home”

We had a great stay at this house from 5/20-5/26. What a great house! So much space. So much fun snorkeling out the back door (bring your own equipment)! It was so nice that all of us had large comfortable rooms and plenty of space in the living area to enjoy being together. The poolside chairs were comfortable for sitting and enjoying the evening. The local iguanas were great entertainment.
The downside? There were ants in the kitchen, so we kept all opened food in the fridge. The hot water, cold water was unpredictable.
Victor was so nice to us and the housekeeping staff had everything so nice for us each day when we returned from sightseeing. Also cabs were very easy to get by walking next door to the hotel. The hotel concierge even gave us coupons for free drinks at the restaurant we were going to. And the pool guy - what a character! He had some great stories and checked with us before draining and refilling the pool to make sure it would be available whenever we wanted it.
We'll stay there again.

“Needs updating!!”

We had a great vacation at the Villa Princesa on 4-4 to 4-11, however I will be real honest with you.......Victor was very helpful, the housekeepers did their job, the view was wonderful and the beds were comfortable, but that's where the good ended. Most everything in the house is ready for replacement. The drapes were literally shredded, the coffee maker barely worked and only when it wanted to, the pillows were like rocks, very little or no hot water, the refrigerator is extremely small (for a house accommodating this many guests) and doesn't keep things very cold, the living room furniture is falling apart, and the tile around the pool is dangerously slippery. Everything in the house is in very, very used condition including pots and pans, towels, bedding, etc. And then there were the small things like no plug for the tub and we had 2 babies that needed baths, we had to wait 2 days for the cribs, and a broken down old gas grill that no longer worked with gas, but briquettes. Also, we were ate alive by bugs and we are not sure if they were from inside or outside. We did see some mosquitos in the evening, but these were really not like mosquito bites. We had a lot of fun in spite of these things.
