Guestbook comments from the owner

Your hacienda and staff were everything we had read about and MORE. I can't say enough and words can't put how elated me and my wife were to have chosen your place for this family get together. I would like to use your services again and will definitely pass this info onto my friends at Boeing.

Thanks for every thing and happy new year to you all.

Such an awesome Get Away!!

  • 5 of 5
Thanks Rene, Walter, and Isabel for making us feel so welcomed and relaxed for the stay with the family. We had a variety of ages and everyone was so happy with the accommodations. The food was awesome, the rooms always clean, and the pool was great to cool off in after a hot day out on the ocean or at the zoo. They were prepared for anything we needed and even got us great cabs.

We were walking distance to downtown and had several good meanders down to the beach and to the Malaccan. Centrally located, the home is awesome for excursions in either direction. 20 minutes to the airport, 5 from downtown, 15 to the zoo. Just all around a great place to stay with your family.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week at this villa and had a great time. The staff is friendly and takes great care of you while they are there cooking and cleaning. Close enough to walk to the beach for some or a short cab ride if you prefer. Loved the view from the upstairs bedrooms.

If you’re looking for a clean and comfortable home with an amazing staff & that resort feel with the privacy of a villa, you can stop looking. We (9 of us) just stayed at Villa Encantada for a week and I can’t even begin to tell you how great it was,,,,, but I’m gonna try anyway. :-)

I looked for months for the perfect place to take some of my very close family friends & my parents to for their first time out of the US. I wanted a home that had a view of the bay, had 5 rooms that all had their own private bathroom, a pool, walking distance to old town (less than 15 minutes), a full staff and affordable. You wouldn’t think that’s too much to ask for right????? Well guess what, we found it!!!!! The layout of the home is literally perfect without feeling huge & awkward. The home is nicely decorated & kept amazingly clean & comfortable by Isabel. She was so quiet & efficient we almost didn’t know she was there. The houseman Renee took great care of us making sure our every need was met and made sure we had his cell # even on his day off incase we needed his assistance.

The food… the food… the food. Oh me oh my!!! Having been to PV several times before I thoughT for sure we would eat out a few different nights just so the family could experience the city. Our second night we were there was Sunday (the staffs day off) we went to a middle of the road place for drinks & dinner. We didn’t go crazy and the average cost for 2 drinks & dinner was around $50 (without dessert). Monday came & we had dinner at the villa again & were blown away at the service from Renee & the taste & presentation of the dinner prepared by the chef Walther (Walter). We never had another breakfast or dinner outside the villa again. Our least favorite & by far most expensive meal was outside the villa. We had 6 breakfasts and 5 dinners (each dinner had apps 1 hour before & dessert) prepared & served to us & a fair amount of alcohol. The total cost per person was $124 FOR THE ENTIRE WEEK! I paid $50 for the one dinner and drinks. I won’t make that mistake again.

At the end of the day we loved our visit at Villa Encantada! We love it so much we are booked again for a 10 day visit in just over a month. YAY!!!!! I can’t wait to get back and you should stop reading 100’s of reviews like I did and just book this place! You can thank me later. ;-)

Amazing villa

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Villa as fantasia was amazing. We booked it for a group of 12 to take some relaxing time after a wedding and our stay was amazing.
The villa is nice and big, the view is next to none from the terrace and balcony with a nice pool and only a few minutes walk from the beach (pretty steep walk though, coming back up will take longer).

The staff is also as good as it gets. Andre speaks perfect English and will cater to your every needs.

Walter, the cook, will make you some of the best food you've had at a very reasonable price. If you were thinking of going to an all inclusive, you should reconsider.

Isabel, the maid, managed to clean the house, every day with 12 people in the house without us noticing she was even here.

Anyways, to sum it up, I would definitely recommend Villa Encantada to anyone and would go back without hesitation.

Absolutely Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Villa Encantada exceeded our expectations on every level. The Villa is gorgeous with every detail thought out and every amenity you could possibly need. It’s inviting with plenty of space to lounge around, even with 13 people it never felt crowded. The Villa’s staff, Rene, Walter and Isabel were key in making our stay comfortable, memorable and over the top. This really is a personal, all inclusive resort! Rene met us on the first day with margaritas, chips & salsa and a big smile. Throughout the week, we marveled at how he thought of and took care of everything. Walter’s cooking brought down the house…we ate breakfast and dinner at the Villa every day except one (their well-deserved day off). We enjoyed the food so much, we asked if he would teach us how to make a few dishes and he happily indulged us, crowing one of our guests as his sous chef. Isabel’s presence and attention to detail was felt every day we walked into our perfectly made up rooms. I can’t say enough about the staff, they were professional and kind, but also joked and treated us like friends.

Hands down this was one of the best vacations I have ever taken. Everything is so well taken care of and the Villa is incredibly comfortable, my friends and family really got to relax and enjoy time with each other. We were in or by the pool most days with short excursions into town to find the best taco stands for lunch. The 15 minute walk down into town is super easy, but in September it can get really hot, so we usually took a quick/cheap taxi ride back up the hill to the Villa. We were always eager and happy to get back to the Villa. Being together with friends and family made the vacation very special for us, and staying at Villa Encantada made it perfect.

Without hesitation I highly recommend Villa Encantada…truly an amazing experience.

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful vacation while in Puerto Vallarta. The staff at Villa Encantada and the house itself was amazing. Rene, houseman and concierge, Walter, the chef, and Isabel, the maid, made our stay feel like a home away from home. Rene was fabulous. He answered any questions that we had and just catered to our every need. Walter's food was delicious! The food offered at the restaurants in Puerto Vallarta cannot compare to Walter's cooking. Isabel kept the villa immaculately clean on a daily basis. The villa itself is in a great location with beautiful views. I highly recommend anyone to come and indulge in this experience.
