Thank you for having taken the time to post your review of your recent stay at Villa La Estancia, I am truly delighted that we were able to provide you with the best service and accommodations; I will gladly pass along your lovely words to all our team members.
All of us here at Villa del Palmar Flamingos look forward to pampering you again in the warm and sunny shores of Banderas Bay!
"Welcome home" are always the first words we hear when coming back to our favorite place in Mexico, Villa La Estancia. Every summer for the past 8 years our family has made this trip to recharge our relaxation batteries, and every summer for the past eight years the folks at VLE make us feel like we're home again. Where to start? There is so much positive to say, so I'll start with the first thing, and probably the least fun...check in. Hey, at least they meet you with a cold glass of champagne and bottles of icey cold water., and once you're finished with the business of checking in, if you've purchased the all inclusive package (highly recommended) then you will also be given a luxurious aromatherapy hand massage. Can I just say that everything in this resort is aromatherapy? From the lovely lavender and verbena scents in the halls, to the grilled fish, chicken and steak emanating from the restaurants, everything smells delicious. The villas are beautifully decorated, modern designs and have humongous balconies with plenty of space for our family of four. We usually stay in a two bedroom now that the kids are older, but when they were young, the one bedroom villa with a pull out couch was fine.
The staff at VLE is impressive. They are clearly happy and go out of their way to make sure you are happy too. From Lucio, Luis, Angel Nicola and Carlos at La Parilla, the pool side restaurant, to Miguel, Rogelio, Bernardo, Enzo and Gabriel at La Casona. The staff mak s you feel so special and pampered. Fidel and Oscar were ready every day down by the pool with fresh towels and a sense of humor. My husband wanted to thank Felix and Roberto from the Tatewari Spa, which is an absolute MUST, whether for a spa treatment (the massages are wonderful as are the facial treatments) or just to enjoy the sauna and hydrotherapy. The quiet time spent in the spa is a mini vacation inside the vacation.
I could go on and on but let me just say this...you can not go wrong by choosing VLE. We can't wait to go back next year. Thank you!

I brought my 19 year old and my 2 year old and it was the best selected resort. So comfortable and relaxing in every way possible. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are rated 100 percent amazing!! Top of the line everything..

Spent a week at Villa La Estancia for my birthday. The staff were all very friendly, were bilingual and really tried to make your stay great. Welcomed in the reception area with glasses of rosé, welcome hand massage and then taken to our room.
Gorgeous view from 1202 - pool and ocean. The room itself was very clean and well taken care of. It definitely felt luxurious.
Room service was available 24hrs - breakfast was delicious. Though not as thrilled with other meals.. there's always a difference when you eat it just as it's been prepared vs waiting for it to be delivered.. it's just not the same.
La Parilla was delicious - the chicken tacos, chicken wrap, and fajitas were tasty! Drinks were good but it's hard to enjoy when a blended drink melts before you can finish it.
La Casona had delicious food as well - though my steak definitely wasn't cooked well done as asked.. more like medium rare. It still was delicious.
The pool is open until 9pm..
There's a market at the resort next door that has basic supplies and snacks as well as a nice deli (with sandwiches, tacos, quesadillas and pastries/ice cream).
There are two restaurants next door, an Italian and a Mexican one. The Italian restaurant had outdoor seating and delicious food - but the mosquitos were out for a feast too. When we went to eat at the Mexican restaurant, it was a salsa and buffet night.. so plan to be flexible or ask ahead. At all the restaurants and the market you are able to charge to the room - convenient but dangerous.
If you are looking for a resort that you can stay exclusively in - this is great. If you're looking to go to multiple authentic restaurants, I'd say you should stay closer to Puerto Vallarta. This is located among a long chain of resorts..
I want to thank you for taking the time to send your kind review and for staying at Villa La Estancia Riviera Nayarit.
Please do not hesitate to contact me for your future vacations, my team and I will be more than glad to make all necessary arrangements for another great stay at our resort.
Nice resort, very modern, and beautiful grounds and setting and combined with Flamingo resort next door -it has some nice features. But this isn't really a full-service hotel, it feel like a timeshare with room rentals, and there is pressure to take a timeshare tour in order to receive discount card. The tour took us over two-hours and was tedious. The discount hard made it a worthwhile deal but... The resorts has a nice sandy beach, and the loaction is pretty but is far from everything, at the very end of the hotel row. While everyone was friendly and very courteous, the service is lacking and food options are limited. Also there is a serious void of information provided and there are no extras, plus there is no front desk at all. Suggestions; keep the pool bar open until at least 8pm, make water available for free near the pool, lobby, and beach (its hotter than Hades here, give people some water like a real resort), make kitchen supplies available for people in the suites, and add a real front desk with service help, and have a real concierge who can assist with tour info, and other guest services. And get some real Wi-Fi in the rooms. Considering how many hotel and resort options there are in the area, I would be hesitant to recommend La Estancia

We had an absolute wonderful time at the Villa La Estancia Resort. The entire property was beautiful inside the resort and outdoors. The landscaping was immaculate and so beautiful! The condo's are large and extremely clean, just as advertised, and to the Estanica's exquisite standards. The entire staff could not have been more accommodating to our family. Whether at the pool, on the amazing beach, or in the restaurant or lobby area, everyone was so kind and helpful! If you want a top notch resort with the nicest amenities (gym and spa was great, too!), you can't go wrong with with this resort! We will definitely be back to this property. Thank you, to the entire staff at Villa La Estancia, for making our experience so wonderful!
