Guestbook comments from the owner

This vacation exceeded my expectations on many levels. Your Puerto Vallarta villa was even nicer than I anticipated based upon the beautiful pictures.

Having rented villas in various destinations previously, I know that the staff can make all the difference. Segio, Concha and Carman as well as the other villa staff were beyond exceptional! They provided excellent service, excellent food with the perfect touch cordiality. Thank you!

Great Villa, great location, great food, great housekeeping. I highly recommend this Villa for a friends and or family vacation. I look forward to doing it again.

We've just returned from a 5 night stay at Villa Explendora that we shared with 3 other couples. We all agree that this was the BEST vacation!!! We are all well-traveled and have stayed in fine properties through out the world…. but the staff made our time here PERFECT!!! Sergio addressed all of our needs without difficulty, including a trip to the emergency room for stitches and dentist for fixing a chipped tooth!!! Daniel was so wonderful accomodating quirky dietary constraints and pleasing even the most picky in our group!! The bus to town was across the street so everyone could come and go as they pleased…. but most of us never left the pool and spa!!!
I wish there was a sandy beach…. but also appreciated the privacy and lack of hawkers that the rocky shore provided.
We can not wait to come back next year!
PS we did a cooking class in PV and really enjoyed our time!!!
Mark and his group did a wonderful job on the reservation side - everything was effortless… Many thanks!

Best vacation ever... at Villa Esplandora

  • 5 of 5
We've just returned from an incredible 5 night stay at Esplendora. All 10 of us agreed that this was our best vacation ever, as we were able to achieve a deeper state of relaxation at your property than we ever have had with any previous vacation. As all 5 couples have young children, this was our first chance to get away for more than a few days we absolutely made the right choice! The villa is stunning, well designed, lavishly appointed, extremely comfortable and even more impressive than the photos.

As fantastic as the property is, the service is even better. Mark and Gary have clearly built an all-star team that love their jobs and demonstrate outstanding service all day. Every detail of our stay, from the pre-trip grocery shopping to meal planning to snorkeling and golf excursions (thanks for the club rentals) to ATM stops, were masterfully handled by Sergio. Sergio addressed all of our requests quickly and with a smile. Daniel is a gifted chef with an impressive range of culinary talent. We especially loved his paella, chicken mole, breakfast burritos and french toast. Carmen and her team did an impressive job of making us feel like we are home, helping us get settled and even helping us exchange rooms to allow for an equitable time share of the 3 master suites. We spent extensive time in the perfectly maintained pool and heated spa.

Mark, Gary and the team have established a wonderful travel experience and we will absolutely be returning in the near future. Thanks again for everything and keep up the fantastic work.

The staff was wonderful, the house was beautiful, the food was delicious. I can't imagine vacationing any other way. The Villa Esplendora has ruined me for anything else. Well worth the money.

Excellent Villa and Staff

  • 5 of 5
Visited with a group of work associates (8 total people) and had a wonderful stay. The villa itself is gorgeous and comfortable. Carmen and her staff keep everything spotless- including laundry services every day. Daniel is a genius with food. Each meal was better than the next and his afternoon salsa and guacamole is incredible- request extra spicy if you like heat. Sergio is the point person and he is always there when you need him, but never interfering with your stay. The only suggestion I would offer is a router booster- wifi only works in the dining/living room on the first floor. Overall, we had an incredible stay and would highly recommend Villa Esplendora to anyone looking for a PV getaway.

Thanks for the Amazing Vacation

I just wanted to take a minute to let you know what a wonderful time we had at the Villa Esplendora.

Our group was made up of 3 couples. We planned this trip, with the sole purpose of relaxing (kid-free) for a few days, being spoiled, and enjoying our friends. We all have young children, and it had been several years since any of us went anywhere without them. We could not have picked a better spot, or a better villa. The villa was even better than advertised, but the staff is truly what made it special.

Due to an airline issue, we arrived a little late at the villia, but once we arrived at the Villa, our vacation could not have been more perfect. Sergio and team more than made up for the time we lost in Mexico City. We were all wishing we could stay just a few more days. We had a wonderful time enjoying our friends, relaxing in the pool, and indulging in far too many of Sergio's cocktails and Daniel's meals. We were all joking at the airport that our stomachs hurt, not from the drinks and food, but from laughing so much. Good friends and a great vacation. Your team is top notch!

I know that all of us have already spread the word about the villa, and are all hoping to return. I am attaching a picture we took when we left. Please send it to Sergio and team, and that we all hope to see them again....Gracias Amigos!

Activity and Interests

The Town - Tourists began flocking to this tropical seaside paradise in the late 19th Century. However, it took a movie starring Richard Burton and Ave Gardner, John Huston’s Night of the Iguana filmed in 1963, to showcase the magnificence of Puerto Vallarta to the rest of the world. Burton loved the area so much that he owned two homes in Puerto Vallarta which were often used by Elizabeth Taylor. The homes still remain in the Gringo Gulch area of Puerto Vallarta, although sold by Taylor around 1990. Vallarta is culturally rich in art, cuisine and natural beauty, as well as some of the warmest and friendliest people on the planet.

Relax by the infinity pool that blurs the separation from the ocean, have some refreshments while enjoying the 10-person Jacuzzi or just relax in one of three private Jacuzzis found in the three oceanfront master suites. Enjoy snacks, drinks and meals served under the outdoor Palapa and take in spectacular evening sunsets.


* Snorkling & Diving - At Mismaloya Beach, just 2 miles South of Villa Esplendora, you will find snorkeling and diving tours that will fully equip you for a short jaunt to the Los Arcos ecological marine preserves - which boasts the best diving and snorkeling in the Puerto Vallarta area. You can also take many different excursions that leave from the Marina Terminal in town.

* Charter Fishing - Excellent fishing charters can be hired at nearby Mismaloya Beach or out of Marina Vallarta.

* Jungle Canopy Tour - Just a few miles south, you can give your best Tarzan or Jane impression over the jungle canopy and rivers, or have dinner and a cool drink while the more adventurous glide atop the jungle canopy. This is a must visit in Puerto Vallarta and is lots of fun. Our favorite tour company is Canopy Tours De Los Veranos.

* Golf - Our favorite courses are located at Vista Vallarta, where you will find two championship golf courses - one designed by Jack Nicklaus and the other by Tom Weiskoff. Wow!

* Whale Watching - You can take a whale watching cruise or just a lovely sunset cruise where you are almost certain to see whales from December through April, along with the typical sightings of Dolphins and other marine life. Make sure you bring some binoculars, as there will be numerous whale and dolphin sightings from our pool terrace as well!

* Yelapa - Spend an afternoon at Yelapa, a quiet beach reached only by boat. Yelapa has no cars, one road and just a recent infusion of electricity. Its tranquility, natural beauty and seclusion have made it a popular home for artists and local natives. Lie in the sun, swim, snorkel, eat fresh-grilled seafood at a beachside restaurant or sample the local moonshine, "raicilla".
