Can't say enough about the entire package of what you receive when staying at Casa Tres Vidas! The staff is second to none. The location is fantastic. An where else can you stay and also have a five star meal served without leaving the premises?
We are headed back in a few weeks and can't wait to spent another relaxing seven days. I just might leave the Casa and see what down town Puerto Vallarta is all about, or not!

Spent a great week at casa tres vidas in Vida Sol for a week in October 2012. The staff could not have been better. The view from the pool and hot tub was incredible.

Our best friend Daniel made sure we have everthing we could imagine. From the great Margaretta's to the fresh guacamole every afternoon, to making sure we had ice cold corona's ready to go 24-7. With Daniel around, we never had to think about a thing. One afternoon I mentioned, I would really like a authentic Tamale, sure enough the next morning bam one of the best tamales, I have ever eaten. Daniel every morning had a big smile and just made you know that you were going to have another great day in paradise.

Eduardo our Chef, was the bomb. Making killer breakfast to awesome dinners, and he didnt even get upset when we decided to use his kitchen in the middle of the night and make our own concoctions. his chicken and mole dinner was out of this world.

We mentioned to Daniel that we would love to get a massage. He made a call and we had truly great in room massages that brought relaxing to a new level.

From the beautiful views, the great rooms, the open air living and a staff that competes with any Ritz, 4 Seasons or JW. It makes it very difficult to even think about vacationing anywhere else.

We miss our days at Casa Tres Vidas.

We went to Casa Tres Vidas for a lazy, relaxing, do nothing vacation and it was the perfect place to do just that. We stayed in Vida Sol and I feel a little guilty for not going out to see more of Puerto Vallarta, but honestly... with the friendly staff, onsite chef, our own pool, and a great beach right below us, there was no reason to interrupt our laziness and leave! We literally had everything we needed at our fingertips... and if we didn't, we just had to ask. Eduardo's meals were delicious and he'd make a batch of guacamole and salsa for us to munch on throughout the day. Daniel kept us supplied with plenty of margaritas every afternoon and took great care of us. It was exactly the stress-free, no worries vacation we were looking for.

Now, for anyone thinking of going and you don't want to be as boring as we were, this is a great home base. The staff can recommend or make reservations for numerous activities and the few times we did venture out, there was a cab there in minutes - very quick. The house is walking distance to downtown (or a 5 minute cab ride). You can see Mismaloya from the house, so that's another short cab ride away. La Playita restaurant is right down the beach and had very good food and margaritas... perfect for a quick lunch or on Sunday when the staff is off. But be warned... the living is FANTASTIC at Casa Tres Vidas and even with the best of intentions to do lots of stuff, once you get there... you might end up like us feeling so taken care of and spoiled that you're happy to just stay right there and enjoy your own private paradise!

Case Tres Vidas is a great hidden gem -- I'm surprised more people don't know about the property or stay there (perhaps I should selfishly keep my mouth shut!)

I returned for a 5 night stay after not visiting the property for a few years. It's great. The vibe is colonial Mexican. It's a great place to visit with friends -- you can find the right degree of privacy and community. The staff is friendly and helpful.

It's probably not the most child-friendly resort in the world -- probably fine for kids over 10 though. There is a mix of gay and straight people -- pretty much like PV overall.

Don't expect Four Seasons luxury, but do expect friendly service, an authentic old-world feel, and great access to Old Town.

The views are AMAZING, and the property is located directly on the beach.

I usually don't write TA reviews, but the owners/operators deserve a good one -- they have something special.

Room Tip: Every villa and room is different, so you need to look at the photos and understand the lay-out. I...

We recently stayed in Vida Mar to celebrate a family milestone birthday and it was everything we had hoped. The property is clean and exactly as shown in the pictures but the best part was the staff. Pablo's cooking was excellent and Dany's drinks at happy hour... it just doesn't get any better. The service was warm, friendly, and discreet. The final cost of the food for our group of 6 was under $200 per person for the entire week (this included wine and happy hour drinks). You will be happy to tip them well at the end. The owner suggests $40 per day for the staff but we tipped $60 per day and it was worth every penny.

How does one begin to describe the perfect week? Casa Tres Vidas was from start to finish one of the most enjoyable vacation experiences I've ever had. From the warm welcome we received from Roberto and Daniel on Saturday, to the impeccable service, friendliness, food, accommodations, locations, etc. it was perfect. My husband and I stayed in Vida Mar with my wonderful aunt and uncle...the place was way to large for four couples, but we were all in a place BEFORE CTV where we needed some peace, quiet and space from our busy-bee lives. Pablo our chef made us incredible breakfasts and dinners..we ate out for lunch and once for dinner on Sunday evening (when the staff is off) - there is really no need to leave the Casa for anything. Daniel made us fresh guacamole, salsa and margaritas every evening before dinner. Angelina kept our villa spotless. The beach was clean and beautiful, and although it was a bit rough to swim and snorkel in our little corner of Banderas Bay, we enjoyed walking up and down the beach and frolicking in the shallows. The location is also fantastic - we walked to old town several times, but ended up usually taking a quick taxi ride in and home. We enjoyed a day trip to Yelapa (thanks Jose for the advice) which was fantastic (even saw a mama and baby whale on the way home in the water taxi!) and a zip line trip to Los Veranos - fantastic. Otherwise, we chilled at Vida Mar, which is the lowest of the Villas (closest to the beach) with a lovely view of the bay, great open common areas, a rooftop patio, and plenty of nooks to tuck away with a book or a nap.

I found Casa Tres Vidas through LuxuryLink.com - what a great find. I rely upon LuxuryLink to find unique properties that I might not otherwise risk a lot of money on. I have been really pleased with the quality of properties available on LuxuryLink, as well as the prices. Casa Tres Vidas is no exception. We are looking forward to our next visit, and hopefully bringing lots more family and friends (gosh, I sure would love to rent all three villas!)

I want to personally thank Daniel, Pablo, Angelina, Roberto, and Jose for their kindness and warmth. In and of itself, Casa Tres Vidas is a fantastic getaway, but the staff made it a truly magical place for us.

Room Tip: All of the villas are lovely. Vida Mar has a fantastic master bedroom, the other rooms are huge and...

I doubt if I can describe the tranquility, beauty, delight and zest of being here with 7 good friends. Sharing one of the hillside/seaside villas gave us plenty of room to relax in the comfy bedrooms and huge common area. The sit down chef-prepared breakfast was spectacular. There's more: a sit-down, chef-prepared dinner each night after the beautiful sunset and relaxing on the terrace. Just us, our own dining area. Small spa pools for our own use. Our own beach. A pleasant 15 minute walk to the Zona Romantica or just stay put. Excellent staff, location, rooms, views, beach, ambience.

Room Tip: check their website to find the one that suits you. You can't go wrong. If you don't need...
