My husband and I spent 10 days at Villa La Estancia in this beautiful room. The view was amazing and the owner amenities were very much appreciated. We loved the peace/quiet and all the staff who made our stay so wonderful. Thank you so much to all. From the delightful young lady who kept our room clean and comfortable, to the pool staff who were most attentive, to the front entry staff who were also most accommodating. We would like to also acknowledge the staff who maintain the lovely grounds. Everyone was friendly and always said yes to any of our requests. We will return to this lovely oasis. Thank you to the owner, you have a lovely villa.

We highly recommend timing your stay for the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas. The area was un-crowded and the weather was fantastic. We arrived late in the day due to airline delays. We were greeted not only with cheery smiles and a bottle of cold water but with a lovely, refreshingly cool damp facecloth to wipe away the travel dust from our tired eyes. The staff was sensitive to our fatigue and quickly checked us in and showed us to our suite. This introduction was just the first of many considerations from the staff at Villa Estancia. We also spent time at the attached properties, Arco and Palmyra and found all to meet the same standards. The facilities and grounds were impeccably maintained and the staff well-trained and most helpful. The restaurants on the facility were good but a bit expensive for what was available. We preferred to have lunch and dinners in town. We used the taxis into town everyday and found them to be very accessible, efficient and clean and at $7.00 for four passengers, very affordable. The walk into town seemed a bit treacherous for our party because of the rough sidewalks. We enjoyed a lunch at Marcos Shrimp and Lobster House- excellent deal. The facility tour coordinator arranged several tours for us. The fishing trip was successful but the boat and captain he chose were less than expected. The snorkeling trip with lunch was great fun and we were able to see lots of sea life, including whales. The tour to Todos Santos with Uriel from Panchito Tours was excellent. Our guide was really knowledgeable and very funny. Overall, we felt well cared for making our stay worry free.
