We recently returned home from our stay at Villa la Estancia. I honestly can not say anything negative about the property or the service we received during our stay. From the moment we arrived, up until our departure, we were treated in a prompt manner with warm hospitality.
The two bedroom/ three bath condo we rented through VRBO was perfect for three teenagers and two adults. While the interior furnishing were lovely and comfortable, we spent majority of our time out on the well appointed balcony. The views were absolutely spectacular from our fourth floor.
We ate breakfast at the condo everyday with food purchased at a local grocery store. For lunch, we ate poolside. The kids loved the burgers, wings, fries, and chicken tacos that La Parrilla served. For dinner, we ate downtown a few nights and over at Bella California, located next door, for two nights. Every night the kids went over to the Ice Cream Parlor for dessert. Our total spending for food and beverages on and off location, was far less expensive than if we had chosen to do the all-inclusive package for our family of five.
During our stay we booked three excursion using Alberto, who is located in the lobby at the La Estancia. He was very knowledge, helpful, and friendly. I would highly recommend that anyone use him, if they want ideas or suggestion for reliable fun.
The beach in front of the La Estancia is swimmable, but the waves were sometimes violent. My teenage boys are 6'2 and 6'5, and each weigh over 200lbs. The waves tossed them like ragdolls, and wore them out! I would be nervous having younger and/or smaller children out swimming unsupervised. Don't get me wrong, they loved the beach and the water....but they stayed near shore!
I would highly recommend the La Estancia for families traveling with children. We felt very safe and the amenities were perfect. We loved having a washer/dryer in the unit, and all the various restaurants located at the three sister properties. We also found the grocery store at the villa group very convenient. The only thing we did not like about our trip was the constant heckling of vendors. From eateries, time shares, excursions, souvenirs, etc. Wow....I got annoyed fast! I have traveled the world, and I think Cabo was perhaps the worst for this. Perhaps this was why we loved and stayed on property for most of our vacation! No harassment....just peace, rest, and relaxation.
We are planning a second trip to Cabo this winter. We will be staying at the La Estancia again with no hesitation!
The Villa we had the pleasure of residing for 8 days was exquisite and had lovely decor. Chris the owner obviously has taken great care in presenting his Villa, after all it is his home when he is in Cabo. Then he gives us the pleasure of enjoying his Villa and even gives us Ambience with his beautiful lighting throughout each room. Even the huge patio had great sitting for relaxing and dining. Housekeeping was great. Beautiful stay!!! This Villa had wi=fi/internet and could make calls to the USA. Excellent. We had a large group of family members, who all had their own Villa and all seemed quite happy with theirs. There were 4 in our Villa and we had so much wonderful space. A definite return for us.
