We have just returned from Barra. We have been to Barra about 8 times now. We have stayed in many different places. Villa Santa Barbara was one of our favorites. Barb and Barry made us feel so comfortable. From the moment we arrived, we had a welcome basket complete with fresh fruit, snacks, bottle of wine and a pizza in the freezer. We stayed in the Penthouse Suite. We had our 21 yr old daughter and her friend. There was plenty of space in the 2 bedroom/2bath suite for all of us. The private deck was very nice to have our coffee in the mornings and watch the Sun come up. We even had our favorite Massage Lady "Norma" from Melaque come to the Suite for a Massage on the deck. Heavenly!!!
It was nice to have access to a washer/dryer. The pool was very clean and inviting. It was just the right temp. The outdoor furniture was top notch, very comfortable and in very good condition. Towels and sheets were top quality, as were the beds. We didn't watch any T.V. however there are nice flat screen T.V.'s in all the bedrooms. There is a great collection of DVD's also. Barb and Barry are wonderful hosts and will make your stay a memorable one as they did ours. We cannot wait to return.

Villa Santa Barbara was fantastic! Barb & Barry treat their guests like old friends that have come to visit. We stayed in the penthouse suite and put the well equipped kitchen to use as Janice cooked up some fantastic dinners enjoyed on the veranda. We stayed a few days in the Jr. suite as well and both suites were quiet, very comfortable and well maintained. We barbequed delicious fish filets with local fruits and veggies delivered right to your door and made refreshing blender drinks in the outdoor kitchen as we marvelled at the beatiful sunsets. Alfredo, one of the best local fishing guides picked us up at the villa dock early in the morning for fishing excursions. Barb & Barry made suggestions and clued us in to the local scene. They got us reservations at the best restaurants, the best places to go shopping and the best tours, from scuba diving to erupting volcanoes! Don't forget the jumping whales, toothy crocodiles, snapping turtles, flipping fish and flapping birds of every color! There's alot to see and do in Barra de Navidad and the Villa Santa Barbara is the perfect base from which to explore the area. A refreshing dip in the sparkling pool feels great after a long day of sightseeing and adventuring! Thanks Barb and Barry (and Vicky & Marv), we'll be back to see you soon.

My friends and I decided to take a vacation to the "sunshine" several months ago. After surfing the web we decided on "Villa Santa Barbara". This was based on pictures and location. We scored and I would have to say a 10 plus. It was everything and more than we expected. The view from our deck was fabulous and being on the canal we had a cool breeze in the evening and a lovely sunset. Barb and Barry rolled out the red carpet for us. Fresh fruit, wonderful snacks and a bottle of wine were there for us on arrival. When booking accomodiations on the interenet - expectations can fool ya. Villa Santa Barbara is located at the end of road on the canal and a short walking distance to the beach. Great place and wonderful host..

Barra de Navidad is one of Mexico's best kept secrets that is about to get out. This little village is on the coast and is small enough to walk around with the locals and feel safe. "Villa Santa Barbara" is situated at the end of one of the three canals that lead out into a large lagoon. Our "Penthouse" suite was large and accommodating. We spent our mornings watching the fishing boats go out. Afternoons swimming in the pool and cocktails under the palapa. Barb and Barry made us feel that their home was ours. After two flights and a day long trip to get there we found a chilled bottle of wine, a chicken and tortilla dinner and basket of fruit waiting for us. Just doesn't get better than that.
