Welcome to our Puerto Vallarta villa, Villa Esplendora

Puerto Vallarta in Jalisco, Mexico, blends the lush tropical jungles and pristine waters with the charm and elegance that is Puerto Vallarta. Villa Esplendora is situated on the South Shore of the Bay of Banderas very near the Los Arcos ecological marine preserve. This exquisite villa is the perfect blend of tasteful design and comfortable living in harmony with its natural surroundings with elements such as tropical gardens, artificial lakes and waterfalls.

A vacation at Villa Esplendora can accommodate those that simply want to relax and be pampered, and those that enjoy exploring the city night life and the rich natural wonders of the area. Whatever your travel mindset, be sure to leave the cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping, and cooking to our excellent staff!

Esplendora features three spacious oceanfront master suites with king beds and private Jacuzzis, and two beautifully appointed Garden bedrooms adjacent to unique bamboo gardens and waterfalls. One of the Garden bedrooms features two queen beds while the other bedrooms have kings. All are equipped with full baths.

Spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, Los Arcos and the Sierra Madre Mountains abound at Villa Esplendora. The home features all natural granite, marble and local canterra stone throughout the nearly 8,000 sq ft of living and entertaining area.

Master Suites - There are three oceanfront master suites with unobstructed panoramic views of Banderas Bay. Retractable doors open up these rooms to the sky and ocean and all three enjoy the comforts of king beds and in addition to private Jacuzzis perched on private balconies.

Bamboo Garden Bedrooms - Bamboo gardens and cascading waterfalls lead guests to these cozy private bedrooms in the interior of the home, one equipped with a king bed and the other with two queen beds.

Dining/Kitchen/Family Room - The grand staircase leads to this area where the kitchen, dining room, island bar and family room all blend together to make entertaining easy and enjoyable. This area seamlessly opens to the huge pool terrace area through open retractable doors.

Pool Terrace - The pool terrace features a large infinity pool, 10 person Jacuzzi, dining palapa, barbeque, rotisserie and wet bar. The pool is bookmarked by two fountains and fire pits that provide warm atmosphere at night. Speakers located on the pool terrace connect to the whole house sound system.

6) All Taxes Included
– Many Puerto Vallarta villa rentals tack on a lot of extra taxes and fees, and don't tell you until you're about to pay. At Villa Esplendora, all taxes are included in the price of your stay, and there are NO HIDDEN FEES.

7) No Profit Mark-Up on Food & Beverages
– There is absolutely no profit mark-up on food & beverage purchases we will make on your behalf. So, enjoying food & drinks at our Puerto Vallarta villa is very economical, typically averaging just about $10/person/day for food, plus your consumption of liquor. If you want an alcoholic beverage, we'll buy you a bottle and make the drinks. We simply collect the receipts and present them to you at the end of your stay.

8) Tips?
– Entirely up to you. However, experience shows us that guests are so impressed with the food, service, and friendliness of our wonderful villa staff, they are eager to show their appreciation. A lot of guests ask for tipping suggestions. We recommend $10/person/day. So, a group of 5 staying for 5 nights would come out to a total of $250 USD.

Best Customer Service Ever!

Ok, I must preface this review and state that we "were" booked for the 23rd to the 31st of October, that is, until the wicked, ugly Hurricane Patricia decided to crash our party. Our party of 8 were all set to go, until the news of the worst hurricane in the Northern Hemisphere was going to his Puerto Vallarta. We contacted Mark and he was amazing. No problem if we wanted to cancel, and that he would re-book us when it was convenient for us to return. He was so fabulous and understanding, no penalties or problems. Of course we were all disappointed to find out that PV wasnt badly hit, and we could have gone after all, but things happen for a reason. Thank you again Mark, we now have something to look forward to in March.

Another perfect 5-star stay at Esplendora!

Our group of 10 adults (no kids) previously stayed at Esplendora in Jan 2014 and returned last October for a 6 night stay, cut short to 5 when we learned Hurricane Patricia was en route. The property is as beautiful and well maintained as we remember and the all-star staff continue to deliver a fantastic experience. Daniel's cooking continues to improve and Sergio does everything possible to provide an A+ experience. Highly recommended for an incredibly relaxing trip in paradise. We will absolutely be returning again soon.

We set off to celebrate milestone birthdays with close girl friends and came away experiencing the BEST VACATION EVER! The Villa gets an A+ on every aspect. is AS AMAZING AS it looks. A+...the staff made our stay OVER THE TOP. A+...I dare say it's even prettier in person. We loved how attentive Serio and Daniel were. The convenience of them doing the shopping and cooking put all these "over worked Mom's" on the BEST VACATION ever. The food was so yummy and fresh! Meche was very good at keeping our rooms up as well. Just really enjoyed everything about this vacation. I hope to go again in the very near future!

Words really can't express how AMAZING my 40th Birthday Celebration was in Puerto Vallarta at the Villa Esplendora! The location is set perfectly off the ocean, and can be seen miles away off the coast! The Villa is not only was perfect for me and 8 of my girlfriends. Being a Hotel Snob, I find that my standard for staying at any location is pretty high! Let's just say that my expectations were beyond met at this Villa! I don't think I will ever want to stay at a hotel again...LOL! The location was BEAUTIFUL! It was clean, and everything was working properly. The staff...Sergio, Daniel, and Meche...served us like we were Queens. Because of Sergio, the House Manager, there was nothing that we could want for. He made sure that we had everything we needed and WANTED! The level of serve was actually better in the Villa, than in the city. Which is what kept us in the Villa more nights than we had originally planned. Daniel was our Chef. He is so talented! Seriously KNOWS what he is doing in the kitchen. The seasoning and presentation of food was, as if we were in a 5 Star Restaurant every night. His ability, is second to none! We actually stopped asking for specific meals and just told him to surprise us!!!!!! We were sad to leave him...LOL! Meche...went over and beyond to make sure we were satisfied. She even washed our clothes before we left...I can't think of one vacation where I returned home with clean clothes! The Villa was in a great location! If we needed a cab, Sergio would call and they were there within minutes. We were able to zip line, jet ski, and shop! In addition, we had a pool, sauna, stereo system food, and if we wanted to...we could stay at the house ALL day! The views of the ocean were straight out of a movie! Not to mention the sunsets! We couldn't have imagine another location on the island that would have given us the same view! We were grateful! While I love to travel, until I have seen the world, I prefer not to return to the same place, after one visit!!!! HOWEVER...this was a place that if I needed a getaway, and didn't want to fuss about where to go...I would without question or hesitation RETURN to Villa Esplendora! If I could I would keep it a I don't have to worry about booking...lOL! Thank you Mark, Sergio, Daniel, and Meche! Because of you...My 40th was the BEST Birthday EVER!

More than we ever imagined!!!

Apologies for the late review. Family and friends enjoyed this beautiful, amazing property for a week in July. The pictures are beautiful however, they do not do the property justice. Every review mentions the incredibly attentive, friendly, personable staff - but, you have to actually meet them to appreciate how truly special they make the experience. We all agreed that a repeat vacation at Villa Esplendora was an absolute must. I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else. This wonderful experience has our highest praise and recommendation.

What a great experience!

Daniel and Sergio make the vacation the most relaxing you will ever experience! The house is amazing but their cooking, bartending and attention to every detail is just incredible. What a house, location, view and people! We will be back.

Did not want to leave - it was wonderful!!!

This was both mine and my husband's second time at the villa but the first time for our additional 10 guests. They loved the house. The staff was amazing. The food was awesome. I have only good things to say about our vacation. If we want a relaxing vacation, this is where you want to stay. We love Puerto Vallarta and will definitely be back.

Villa Esplendora Vacation!

This was my first time renting a villa and everything was wonderful! We were greeted at the door by staff with Margaritas and they gave us a short tour of the house before letting us settle and get into that amazing pool. The house is spectacular but the staff were what made this a fantastic vacation! They were always attentive and professional. We choose to create our own menu and the chef executed the dishes perfectly and always on time; I was amazed! Groceries were picked up daily and receipts were given; we had some specific grocery requests and they were always accommodated. I am planning on staying here again soon!

Three Generations Celebrate Awesome Thanksgiving

What an enchanting home. We have rented holiday houses around the world. But this was magicial. The house itself is wonderful. Room for private moments, space for family celebrations, an incredible pool and terraces. But as in every home, it is the people that make the experience. Sergio and Daniel do just that! From the moment we first set foot on the property, we felt at home. They can handle anything. Including too many cooks in the kitchen, making that Thanksgiving turkey! We loved it and are already planning our return trip!

I had the most amazing time and adventure, the staff is the best in the world. As beautiful as Villa Esplendora is the staff Serio, Daniel, and the rest. Are what made it a dream vacation, there were 11 woemn and we all said the same thing Serio and Daniel are like family. They treated us like princesses, we tried on numerous occasions to come back to the states with us Seattle especially. but we all agreed that everyone on the planet needs to have the Serio/Daniel treatment and to live like rock stars at Villa Esplendora.
