“I do not find words to describe it..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

I would like to express with details and more information about this place, but I can not find any word that can describe it. My experience was unmatched after looking and reading hotels around P. Vallarta I found this piece of heaven. Customer service beyond luxury hotels, organic farm and experience unforgettable, food & drinks great quality and amazing taste. YUMI!!! I wil not forget the MIXOTE and the Mango Water. Rooms are spotless and 100% luxury. Green & pool areas like Hollywood movie.
And the most important If you wanna disconnect from city life style YOU SHOULD go and experience Villa Azalea.
Great for couples, family and Solo.
They are pet friendly with a ton of open fields and rivers.

Room Tip: Master Sweet is the ONE, cooking class Delicious and great. Bring your dogs.

My husband and I along with our daughter and her boyfriend stayed at the Villa for 4 days. It was quite different than the beach front all-inclusive that we usually stay in. The Villa is very beautiful and the grounds are well taken care of. Meals were included and Dulce had quite a tall order cooking for the 4 of us. One is vegetarian and another has quite a few food allergies. Dulce catered to all of our needs and the food was always delicious. In the evenings after dinner we would sit in the lounge and play cards. It really does feel like you are just visiting a friend rather than staying in a hotel. The only negatives as many people have said are the biting insects. I would recommend using your own bug spray. I know they are organic at the Villa but the itching can really ruin your vacation. The other thing is, I wish that someone would come ask you if you want anything to drink while you are sitting by the pool or in the river. They will bring it to you but you have to go find them. I would recommend renting a car when staying here which is what we did. We got to see more of the area than we usually do. Santiago and Dulce recommended Mayto Beach which was well worth the drive. It was practically deserted and there is a small hotel that you can rent one of their umbrellas and chairs to stay out of the sun and you can also swim in their pool. Santiago also took us to the Botanical Gardens which are beautiful. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and I would recommend it if you are looking for something more personal.

I recently had the lovely experience of a week at Villa Azalea. Dulce and Santiago are extremely charming hosts. The food was amazing, and being pretty much the only guests we were upgraded to a suite - always fun!
We were looking to not be in the hustle and bustle of PV, and Villa Azalea was a perfect fit. Dulce suggested that with a week we'd appreciate having a rental car to explore the area at our own pace. While I was a tiny bit nervous about that prospect, we did it and had no issues at all. I'd highly recommend getting out and exploring the area, we hit lots of little spots in a two hour radius.
I was fantastic to have breakfast at the villa and then be out for most of the day, returning for dinner, but make sure you make time for at least one lunch with the garden tour! Dining in the river is quite a treat!
There were really only a couple little tiny negatives I feel like should be mentioned. The bed is very very firm, which I didn't mind so much, but my boyfriend's back is finicky and he had a bit of a hard time. A couple times we made plans to stay out late, and one night we came back and the gate was locked, we had a walkie-talkie to let Dulce know when we were back, but there was a mix up and the boyfriend ended up scaling the fence - not ideal but also one of the best stories we have from the trip. ;) After that Dulce was very apologetic and agreed to a different gate system. Only other little thing - while I'm generally looking to unplug on vacation, there was another couple there for a few nights who were very upset about the wi-fi situation. Basically, if like me you like being able to check in once or twice a week from a limited radius but otherwise are happy to not be tethered to your electronics you'll be just fine - if your idea of a great time is constant access to Facebook, just know that's probably not going to happen here. ;)
The experience was just really lovely - it definitely feels more like staying at a bed and breakfast than a hotel, after a couple days it really does feel like home, and we can't wait to return!

Room Tip: All rooms seemed lovely, for longer stays a suite was super comfortable!

I personally was disappointed with what we cooked. We had been asked , and we gave suggestions of very Mexican dishes.
Making packaged pasta is not gourmet! We did make our own very tasty sauce for the package macaroni. Using Salmon from Costco , when we have amazing fish here ,makes no sense to me . We could have made something with local tuna, which we buy here ourselves so cheaply. A dessert was suggested and made by Dulce which was great, but it should have been us doing this. Recipes were promised and never given.
We had nothing but time in this isolated and beautiful establishment, I expected better.
So for me having experience cooking classes in other establishments, this was not great.
However, Dulce and son Santiago were helpful and delightful.
Though you need to know that there are extra charges for coffee and tea unless served with your meals. There was something about having a coffee,sitting on the patio early morning and watching the different birds, but we were charged for this, which was a surprise to us. I understand alcohol but coffee?
Take lots and lots of bug spray,we are still suffering from large welts from the bugs.

Room Tip: Pick a room not a suite, our friends were upgraded at no cost to a suite and it was very dark compar...

Within our Outdoor Cooking Class, one of our successes has been the elaboration of Mixiote authentically mexican carrying more than 5 different kinds of peppers wrapped in banana leaf, also pink mole that is truly a Gourmed Mexican dish and the combination with the salmon is a treat! sorry hasnt been t o the liking of your palate, but will consider your suggestion.

Villa Azaleas

Four of us arrived on Friday morning for a " Gourmet Weekend". The very first thing that Dulce, the owner, asked us to do was to cover ourselves with mosquito repellent which she gave to us. As the weekend wore on we found that we really needed it because the no-see-ums were vicious. In fact, while the sun was up, we found that the only way to avoid them was to stay indoors. Not what we wanted to do. We were all bitten quite badly and the resulting welts were itchy and painful.
One of our rooms was a suite on the ground floor and was a nice room but quite dark. The other room was on the top floor and overlooked the pool, a waterfall and the creek that runs through the property. Very nice. However, the upper floor is reached by climbing up a flight of 22 stairs which has no handrail. Pretty easy for people younger than 74 but for us it was a bit scary.
The hotel is just a couple of years old and is nicely situated in lovely grounds. The rooms are pleasant and there is a very pleasant common living room with a large table, sofas, a selection of DVDs and an "honour" bar where we could buy wine, beer, water and sodas. Although Internet is, in theory, available if one sits on a particular bench beside one of the pools, I was unable to connect to it with my iPad even if my wife was able to do so with hers.
We had all signed up for the cooking class and so on Saturday afternoon we spent a couple of hours preparing a meal with Victor, a chef who travelled in from Nuevo Vallarta. It was an excellent experience and one I would recommend to any one interested in food.
Dulce is an excellent cook who uses many ingredients that she gets from her own garden. The selection of herbs and the freshness of the vegetables were wonderful. The meals were nicely served on tables on the terrace but we found that the constant clearing of plates was distracting and less than relaxing for us.
When the time came to check out I knew that we were going to be charged for the bottle of wine that we had ordered for dinner but was surprised that two beers, some water and coffee(!!) came to an additional 350 pesos. Not exorbitant but, for this type of hotel, unwarranted.
It would be a great place for a honeymoon or even a second one but the bugs will keep us away in the future.

Room Tip: To access rooms on the top floor you need to climb up and down 22 stairs with no handrail.

Definitely this place Villa Azalea is considered Luxury in the middle of the Nature, is for lovers of organic and conservation of the natural resources, our guests that come here are well aware, that we do not use any toxic product, everything is organic and natural.
It is the first time that we have complaints of this magnitude , we consider it is a bit exaggerated.

I am so happy we discovered this hotel and plan to return. The setting is unique next to its own creek and a small waterfall. The hotel has its own organic farm and organizes cookcing classes. The rooms are tastefully decorated in a contemporay design, are super clean and spacious.

My wife and I came to Villa Azalea to get away from the rat race of the city to rest and recuperate before returning to our work again. We found the perfect place: a magical organic farm that was hosted by a family and a small group of staff. Dulce, our host, made sure we were comfortable and took care of us in many small detailed ways. She was anxious to please and ready to accommodate. Her son, Santiago, was a delight to be around. He was smart, easy going and very friendly. He took us on a tour of the Botanical Gardens which was also amazing! We were lucky to be the only two guests for a few days, so we enjoyed the peace and quiet. At night, we would watch DVDs from their tremendous collection. The two best parts of the visit: 1. the amazing landscape and river 2. the delicious, healthy and farm grown food! Be sure if you lay out to sunbathe by the pool to get the "no-see-um" bug repellent. All in all, our trip was fantastic and highly recommended. Thank you Dulce and Santiago for taking such good care of us.

Room Tip: If you get a room upstairs, be sure to request a key to the security gate for access at night.
