We stayed at the villas for 1 week during our honeymoon in August '06 and it was the most memorable part of our entire trip. We stayed in the Puebla villa which had a view of the ocean and a lot of privacy. The rooms are clean, simple and perfect - not luxurious. If you're looking for luxury you should check into a mega resort in Puerto Vallarta. PE is all about simple, friendly beach living.
The grounds of the villas are beautiful as they are perched on a hiilltop overlooking Playa Carrizalillo. Every morning we would wake up and walk down the winding staircase to the beach. We would lay about the beach, or take surf lessons in the calm inviting waters. We often ate lunch at one of the many palapas lined along the beach. The beach is great for novice surfers because there are absolutely no attitudes on this beach. The pros are all at Zicatela.
When the day was done we would often meet up at the bar on the patio. This tiny "bar" was run by Ricardo every night from 6-10ish where he would make the absolute best Pina Coladas and Margaritas in PE. We loved this time because fellow guests in other villas would come out and chat. We met many cool people here and were often sad when people would leave. It felt like a really tight knit community because you would see the same people every night drinking at the bar. Then you would often break off and do your own thing or go out to dinner with new friends.
Basically, the villas are a very special place for us. We felt like we had a more personal vacation in Mexico as opposed to feeling like tourists who order room service, ride a banana boat, then leave.
