We rented this villa for a girls getaway with 14 overworked, stressed Type A personalities. Five days later spent at this heavenly villa, we were all transformed and feeling rejuvenated. What an amazing vacation - the villa was beautifully appointed, high end all the way. Spacious rooms, huge gorgeous bathrooms, and the staff became our friends, they were so helpful and warm. We opted to eat all of our meals at the villa, prepared by the amazing Luigi and his staff, and we were so glad we did. Incredibly delicious Mexican food with fresh ingredients, with the most tasty sauces, all made from scratch. In our group there were a few vegetarians and others who didn't eat pork - no matter, the chef handled it easily and everyone was happily stuffed after every meal - plus dessert as well! There were paddle boards and single and double kayaks at our disposal. The house was right on the beach, with a gorgeous pool as well. The beach is beautiful sand but the water a little rocky until you go out a bit further into a cove where you can stand up in white sand and the water is warm and calm. The best part of all was our concierge Mimi. From the start of planning for our trip until we returned to the airport, Mimi answered our endless questions patiently and clearly, and with great humor. She organized all of our airport transfers and group excursions flawlessly and orchestrated the movements of a large group of 14 women coming from multiple cities without a single error or lost luggage or missed connection. She also arranged for private yoga instruction and massages, all at the villa. When we spoke longingly of doing karaoke for our last night, Mimi arranged for a karaoke machine to be brought to the house. Our every wish was fulfilled! We are already thinking of excuses for us all to sneak away and head back to our villa in paradise as soon as we can. One of my best vacations ever - recommend enthusiastically!
We stayed in both Hacienda Del Mar and Hacienda Corazon with 40 guests for 4 nights for our wedding. Amazing doesn't do justice to both the setting or the staff. The haciendas are simply paradise. Chefs Luigi and Esmeralda and their staff were amazing. Every meal was terrific. Jorge and Carlos, butler/ bartender extroadinaires made sure everyone was comfortable and had a cold drink whenever they needed one. The housekeeping and grounds keeping staff made sure the place was clean and beautiful nearly every minute of our stay. Mimi, the concierge, made us and our guests feel so at home and had a quick answer or suggestion for our every want or need.
For the wedding itself, chef Francesca and Food and Beverage Manager Pino were amazing and cooked such a delicious and memorable meal. Lucy Gallager, our wedding planner made the day beyond memorable and made having a wedding thousands of miles from home a breeze. She and Pino were a delight to work with for both the months leading up to our big day and on the day itself.
Simply put, this place is a little sandy slice of heaven and we can't recommend it highly enough. We will do all we can to visit again sometime in the future.
If you could ask for everything and afford it easily then book the Hacienda Corazon.
Please don't hold my spelling or lack of Spanish diminish the sincere gratitude our family felt at this location.
All inclusive includes everything from breakfast lunch and dinner, special dietary requests and emergency house calls by a qualified doctor!
From the concierge to the maid staff and kitchen workers and grounds keepers were all discreet , professional and efficient. The bar tender took special requests as well as remembering everyone's preferences!
It is my families' goal to go back to the Hacienda Corazon , It now seems like we were home there.
My family and I had the opportunity to attend a wedding there in April. It was hands down one of the best vacations we have ever taken. Mimi and the entire staff are incredible. The wedding itself was beautifully done and the entire week was just plain awesome. I cannot remember a vacation where we ate as well as we did. The chefs were amazing. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
Our extended family of 16 stayed at Hacienda Corazon for a family reunion. Family members traveling with us ranged in age from 12-80 years old. We had a fabulous vacation! Hacienda Corazon is in a great location on the beach with a beautiful setting. The air-conditioned bedrooms & ensuite bathrooms provided privacy for all and yet we had great common areas with living/tv room, game rooms & kitchen (all with a/c). The pool was refreshing & members of our family used the kayaks & paddle boards daily. We had all meals on the patio dining table & the sea breeze made them very comfortable. Puerto Aventuras is a quaint village & we felt safe taking daily jogs, walking on the beach or going to town for gelato. Everyone in our party gave Hacienda Corazon 5 stars.
The best part of our experience was the attentive & fantastic staff! The service we received was top-notch. The concierge, Mimi, took care of anything we needed --very easy to book airport transfers, boat trips, fishing, trips to Playa, anything through her. Mimi was so easy to work with & so very pleasant. We had all of our meals at the house & Chefs Luigi & Alfonso were great, as was Delina. The food was very fresh & delicious. We highly recommend eating all or as many of meals as possible at the house. Plenty to eat, so convenient & so very good! Jorge, the butler, was Fantastic--he kept our drinks filled, served our meals & always made sure we had everything we needed. We selected all of our meals before we arrived at the house & coordinated through Pino (exec chef) who made this very easy. The housekeeping staff were great & did personal laundry for us when asked. The groundskeepers cleaned the pool daily in the early mornings & kept the beach clean during our stay. We were so lucky to find that a sea turtle laid her eggs on our beach one night during our stay & the groundskeepers found the nest, showed it to us & marked it. Can't say enough good things about the staff & service we received. We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation & won't hesitate to return. Great vacation!!
