We just returned from our second week long vacation at Villa Estrella Mar. We are ready to go back again! You couldn't imagine a more peaceful, gorgeous, well appointed, luxurious, fun place to stay. The service from staff members is beyond perfection - they are so personable and professional and cater to your every need (even things you didn't know you needed!) An outstanding vacation spot with so much beauty in each room that you continue to find delights throughout your entire stay. Sue, Del Mar, CA



Three families shared this home for Spring Break 2016 and had a truly wonderful visit. The property is spectacular and the staff amazing -- completely spoiled us -- extremely attentive, professional, friendly -- any request was immediately responded to (even running out for churros as a last minute request during dinner:). Could not have asked for a better vacation!!! Julie F.



Beautiful villa in the hill over looking Old Town. Perfect location for those wanting to be walking distance to Old Town whilst having a relaxing and tranquil atmosphere. The villa, staff and food were exception!  Tom, London

An incredible week from my Granddads 80th birthday family reunion. Staff is incredible, location is beautiful, and we were blown away by the property. I highly reccomend. La, CA


Simply amazing

This was our first time staying at Villa Estrella Mar and I couldn't recommend it more highly. The view is unbelievable, the staff was impeccable and the Villa itself was heavenly. We celebrated our father's 80th birthday with a huge family gathering and the Villa was a perfect fit for this celebration. My only complaint was that our stay wasn't longer. Thank you Villa Estrella Mar, the memories from our stay will be forever etched in my mind. I hope to someday come back and enjoy this little piece of heaven. Grant, Stockton, CA


Birthday----family reunion

We had the privilege of staying for a full week at this resort, the villa is beyond description. Located on a rise overlooking the Pacific, plenty of windows and balconies to view from and to enjoy the breeze coming off the ocean. The rooms are spacious and well furnished with Mexican antiques and collectables. The bed was comfortable and fresh each morning. There were 29 in our party and except at meals, the pool, and scheduled outings we were not at all crowded or cramped. The staff was outstanding, very attentive without being intrusive. The food was excellent,(especially the French toast). My room was made up each day and laundry done without me ever seeing the staff. Excellent swimming pool, large and about shoulder deep most of the way with two shallower areas for the children. An easy walk into town and reasonable cab fare to other locations. Close to Old Town so you get the real flavor of Mexico, and best of all really great street tacos! Wonderful time, I will never forget or surpass this experience. John, WA


Wishing that we could celebrate 80 years of age every year!!!

Our extended family of 29 stayed in Villa Estrella Mar as well as the neighboring Villa Los Puertas. We joined to celebrate my father-in-law's 80th birthday. We had introduced both sets of our parents to Puerto Vallarta about 6 years ago with a trip over Thanksgiving with the kids. As expected, everyone fell in love with it. We love to stay near the Old Town, with its charm and authentic Mexican culture. So when it was time to plan a special celebration for his 80th birthday, with such a large group,we knew of only one place that would make it a celebration of a lifetime! Villa Estrella Mar of course! As previously stated by so many, the villa, views, food, service, location.....everything was exquisite! But what was most enjoyable, was the hospitality and personal service of the staff. Paco and his team went out of their way to ensure that all of our needs were met. Travelling with so many, ranging from 80 years to 14 months, this was no easy feat! It is true as others have said, that words and pictures can't capture how special Villa Estrella Mar really is. I think it's the combination of beautiful architecture, art, sunshine, views, lovely breezes that flow through the open atmosphere, as well as the sound of the crashing waves at night that add to the magic experience. We anxiously await our next visit, and hope that you too can one day experience the magic of this seaside gem!!! Mary Lou, H



The Villa is architecturally beautiful allowing every guest to feel their room is a private suite, allowing for large gatherings and also intimate moments away from the hustle and bustle of the all the guests. This luxury estate is complete with art throughout. It was always a pleasant surprise when I discovered something interesting and new in a nook or around a corner. It was my Dad’s 80th birthday and we more than filled the Villa with sons, daughters, grandchildren and great grandchildren totaling nearly 30 for meals and hanging out by the pool. The service was 10 stars out of a maximum 5-star rating. The staff was amazing; incredibly professional, friendly and attended to our every want, need or desire. Between a breakfast to die for and the Villa’s world famous margaritas we were ready to sell everything and live at Estrella Mar forever. What a wonderful experience….thank you! Taylor, WA


World traveler has found Paradise!

I've been lucky enough to travel to some exotic and exquisite getaways, and this wonderful gem is one of my favorites. Seriously. My hubby and I are already crafting excuses to return to Estrella Mar. It is at once very private... the villa is perched over the Pacific, yet also an easy walk into town. A perfect combination in my book. The food was extraordinary and the staff was delightful. The craftsmanship and furnishings of the home are warm, authentically Mexican and breathtaking. So dreamy in every way. Natalie D
