We have a group of friends that have been meeting the second weekend of September for 33 years generally around the U.S., but sometimes in Mexico. Without any reservation, I can say that we've never stayed at a better place. The full-time staff are not just welcoming, but exhaustively helpful in anything you may need. The chef was so amazing that we left every choice of what to serve up to him, and he did not disappoint, either with the quality of the food, or its presentation. The rooms and grounds are impeccable and gorgeous, with flowers and butterflies everywhere. It felt like we were staying in the Garden of Eden (but with staff!). They even have a concierge to help you charter boats, make reservations downtown, or anything else Puerto Vallarta has to offer. When a boat we charted canceled at the last minute, they got us a better one and even offered to pay the small incremental fee if we were disappointed in the new boat (we weren't). I know this may seem like a too-good-to-be true review, but this is legit. Just a phenomenal place. Enjoy!
We went 15 girlfriends to celebrate our 50th bday. We had an amazing time. The villa is spectacular. Bedrooms are comfortable and beautifully decorated, the swimming pool has breathtaking views, staff was great specially Mikey. He was our bartender, waiter, bell boy. He assisted so kindly to everything we needed. He is a keeper! Food was delicious. The cheff does a marvelous job!
It is definitely a villa I recommend and I would love to come back soon.
Don’t hesitate to book your vacation at Villa Mandarinas! No matter who your group consists of, you will be thrilled! The meals- delicious, the staff- hard working and friendly, the villa- beautiful! The entire vacation was perfect thanks to Viola Mandarinas! We can’t wait to return!! PRRFECT 10!!!
Our stay at Villa Mandarinas was lovely! Set against a hillside, each bedroom had a breathtaking view of the water. The early morning light was my favorite. Strips of cool blue light from the water, sky, and mountains made waking up a delight. The staff was wonderful. The food was simple, elegant, and delicious. You couldn't hope for a better place to stay.
I had such a nice stay here, I can't say enough. Gabriela was an excellent host and made sure things ran smoothly. The staff and particularly the **food** far exceeded expectations, I never wanted to go out to eat. Beyond the magnificent views, the accommodations were beautiful and amazing. I particularly enjoyed the integration of natural rock in the space, it was both unique and inspiring. Will definitely return if the opportunity presents itself!!!
