Best vacation ever. The house is so comfortable and inviting with unbelievable view of the bay. The staff is attentive to your needs and will do whatever you need them to do to make your stay more enjoyable. If you want a vacation where you have your own home and want tofeel like you are living the life of the rich and famous, this is the place.

“5 STARS ARE SIMPLY NOT ENOUGH!”
Reviewed 11 January 2016 for a stay in May 2014

people found this review helpful

This is the second time we have had the fortune of staying at Villa Esplendora - we now consider it our Mexican home away from home. Prior to staying we had no idea of what was in store for us, we'd never been to Mexico, we'd never been to Puerto Vallarta and we'd never stayed in a luxury villa, so the whole experience was new!
Where should I start.... the HOUSE, all I can say is that the house is spectacular, 5 bedrooms with 3 main bedrooms all ocean frontage. The size of these rooms is beyond belief, they are massive and really luxurious you literally feel like you are living in a palace. The property is kept impeccably, it is spotless and you can tell that all maintenance is carried out like clockwork as nothing looked shabby or in need of repair.
The pool area is sensational, we just spent our entire holiday either enjoying meals under the La Palapa, sunning ourselves on the pool lounges or gathering for a little shade and a chat on the corner lounge suite.
The pool is an infinity pool, you just sit there and look at the ocean, forgetting about the cares and worries of the rest of the world. It house water features that see running water hit the pool during the day, and at night these turn into fire pits that add to the magic of the mood.
Now the staff that work there, this team is the heartbeat that really makes Villa Esplendora a HOME! Sergio - head of the house, Daniel - your personal chef and Meche - your housekeeper. They are some of the most beautiful people you will ever meet and THEY ARE THE REASON this experience is so sublime.
My words don't even do Villa Esplendora justice - we will be going back again hopefully in 2017

“absolutely unforgettable”
Reviewed 20 December 2015 for a stay in June 2013

The villa was spectacular and so was the staff! There was not a thing to want for and if you did they would go out of their way to make sure you had it!!!!! The owner was so lovely to deal with and went out of his way to accommodate you.......
Have stayed there more than once and would love love to go again.......
Really for the money nothing beats this one!!!

“PERFECT Mexico vacation spot!!!”
Reviewed 15 December 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My friends and I can't say enough good things about Villa Esplendora. We spent 5 glorious nights being spoiled by delicious food & drinks, the greatest service, perfect views and smiling because it couldn't have been a better vacation.

I recommend this house to anyone who is looking for a once in a lifetime Mexican getaway. You won't regret it and will remember your time there, as we do, as one of the greatest vacations ever.

My husband and I met up with three of our closest friends at Villa Esplendora. It was literally the best vacation we've ever had! The accommodations were gorgeous and super clean - and the outdoor areas was to die for. Couldn't bet the views and Sergio/Daniel literally made the trip. The food, drinks and service was impeccable. Cannot wait to go back! Would recommend this for anyone!

“I left my heart at Villa Esplendora!”
Reviewed 6 December 2015 for a stay in October 2013

If you've been searching for "the perfect" Villa to rent in the Puerto Vallarta area, stop looking. You have found it. I promise you.

I did A LOT of research on various properties in the Puerto Vallarta area looking for a really special place to stay for our wedding and honeymoon. Villa Esplendora was our choice as we needed a beautiful place on the water that slept 12 and had a private pool. The villa is absolutely breathtaking: exceedingly clean, gorgeous furnishings and artwork, high-end finishes, and there is obviously no better view. (Those photos you see of this place online? Yeah, it's even better looking than that.) But what REALLY made our stay outstanding and memorable was the staff. The chef and housekeeper were so warm and took wonderful care of us. But it was house manager Sergio who absolutely blew me away. He was unbelievably helpful in making arrangements for our entire stay, which included a wedding dinner for 30 people. He helped line up boat and taxi transportation for our guests, placed my order for tables/chairs/linens with a party rental company, hired another cook and a bartender to serve, booked our mariachi band, found a baker to make our wedding cake… I must have e-mailed him 200 times about all the details and he was so gracious, so responsive, just amazing. We absolutely could not have had such a beautiful celebration without his help. I will always be grateful for that.

All of that, and it was an outstanding value when compared to properties with similar amenities. I'm so glad to say Villa Esplendora is affordable enough that it won't be a 'once in a lifetime' place for us. We are hopeful to return in a few years to celebrate our 5th anniversary!
