Amazing hotel!

Posted Feb 26, 2015
Pros: Our room, and hotel facilities.
Cons: The food. The food available next door at Villa Del Palmar was much better. La Casona was terrible, breakfast wasn't as bad as dinner.
Location: Bucerias is an easy walk for shopping.
This hotel is a must for families who want things a little quieter. Not much activity, but amazing staff and room.

Nice enough. Not an Expeida vip hotel

Posted Feb 5, 2015
Hotel was overall quite lovely. We did the all inclusive option. Which was likely not worth it. And somewhat annoying as everyone server/bar tender kept asking for our room number. (As some people are not all inclusive). But was a lot as we had to sign after every drink anyways. Big issue was a day it rained and they closed the outside bar/lunch restaurant. And the indoor one was closed to get ready for dinner. So for a few hours. There were no options to eat. You could order a limited menu as room service. But no mixed drinks. The sister property seemed to be fully functioning. But we didn't figure that out for quite awhile, We were not upgraded as they said the next upgrade for a room was not available. I did choose this resort as it was a vip. And have had great upgrades in the past. I would give this a 3 star for an all inclusive. And a 4 for a condo resort. The beach was lovely out front. And you can walk for miles both directions. An overall feeling was the staff was there for the owners not the guests

Great Staff

Posted Feb 2, 2015
Pros: Facilities and staff
Cons: They should not have such large groups (golf junkets) they are not set up for it , maybe smaller business groups.
There was a large golf group there (100 people ) 50 rooms and it really put a strain on the staff and facilities, however they were great and up to the task. The owners of the beautiful residential units in this facility were not happy and a I cant blame them , we just went next door Flamingos for lunch everyday and dinner there a few times when we couldn't get reservations at Estancia. We have stayed here many times , this trip wasn't as quiet and private as previous trips but it was still great, the staff at Estancia and Flamingos is a cut above all others.

Excellent for spa services

Posted Jan 26, 2015
Pros: Spa, spa spa!
Cons: No vendors on the beach.
Location: Close to Bucerias, Punta Mita, Sayulita, gorgeous beaches
I had a short weekend stay at Villa Estancia. Lovely hotel but some construction above my room, so drilling noises coming down into my room. Also 2 or 3 times there was no water. I told the concierge staff, they said yes, that happens and smiled creepily at me. Some great touches that were nice, a welcome drink, hand massages, lots of beach chairs, newspaper/book selection by the beach, boogie boards by the beach...BUT vendors allowed on the beach area! Sick to death of them. I enjoyed the spa immensley, gorgeous design, great therapists. The hydro area is great.

Nice hotel and staff

Posted Jan 20, 2015
Pros: Staff, beach, cleaniness and surroundings. Quiet.
Cons: Food.
Location: Nice location and pleasant village nearby.
Very comfortable hotel with nice staff always willing to assist. Excellent spa and good massage. The downside is the food. Only average. Very disappointing that I did not benefit Gold member Expedia status in any way. I was refused room upgrade although there were very few guest the first days and a better room next to mine empty for days.

Great location, on the beach.

Posted Jan 12, 2015
Pros: Location, room, service were excellent. Not a lot of kids....a plus.
Cons: Bed and beach lounge chairs, were both uncomfortable.
Location: Felt like a secluded beach as there was only a hotel on one side. Walk to Bucerias, art walk, beach, snorkeling, great restaurants, jet skiing, etc.
Everything about staying at Villa La Estancia was amazing! Perfect location and easy walk down the beach to visit Bucerias. The staff was so accommodating and helpful, great service. Lounge chairs (if you aren't an owner) leave something to be desired and the bed was fairly uncomfortable. But other than that, loved the place!!
