We have now gone back here several times. We have had the privilege of visiting many fine hotels and resorts around the world and this is one of our favorites. It's quiet and beautiful without being over the top. Next door is the Flamingos, a sister property which has activities that your kids can participate in. The restaurant food is very good and the condos that we have rented are beautiful, spacious and well-maintained. The only complaint I had was that the wifi only worked on the balconies ... Read more

This was our first stay at Villa La Estancia, and it will not be our last. I travelled with my mother, my sister, her 4 month old baby and my 10 yr old (wheelchair) son. We decided to rent a 2 bedroom suite from an owner via VRBO (Room #1403 A&B). The unit was spacious and very well suited for our needs. I stayed in Unit A (master bedroom with king bed) with my son. There was plenty of room for his beach wheelchair and his regular wheelchair. My sister, mom and the baby stayed in Unit B. This... Read more

This resort is a diamond in the rough hands down. The accommodations were excellent and the staff was courteous in every encounter. I would like to say thank you to the staff and most importantly Ivonna who put us at ease when we spoke about things to do. I will come to this resort annually and I think I may buy a residence in the building.

These are just some of the fun photos of our trip. As you can see, we're all smiles, cuz that's what this place does. I almost sound like a sales person for them, but I'm just doing a review. The workout room is amazing, the tennis court needs some care, maybe new racquets from Walmart and balls, I think that's not asking too much. Make sure you play early or late, cuz the sun pounds on you from 11-5 on the courts.

Stayed here a few weeks ago with our two young boys (4 years and almost 2 years). My sister and her fam stayed here in Feb and recommended it. We chose to do the all-inclusive and so glad we did!

When you leave customs, you will walk through a hall lined with tables and aggressive people asking you where you are staying / who you booked through.

I have visited La Estancia in the past and will always come back here. The grounds are beautiful, food is great, weather is perfect. Don't do all inclusive as local restaurant's in Bucerias and La Cruz are wonderful. Food at La Casona and La Padilla at La Estancia is great also. My favorite here are the people. The staff are the best. From the bellmen, to the concierge, to the maids and Gardner's, they are the best. At the pool, they have wonderful pool concierge and waiters are second to none. ...

Immaculately clean, great staff, great location. Right on the beach but fantastic pool. Restaurants on site were so-so but there are so many great options in the area and by a short cab ride. Love the proximity to area attractions both North and South. Short ride into town, Airport or North to Sayulita and Mita. New Year's Eve party was fun and we made some really good friends. We stayed in a 1-BR with our family of 3 and it was very comfortable. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED ****

Absolutely stunning resort. It's part of the same property of villa del Palmer and villa del Arco this is by far the best resort This is a fractional share condo complex so each unit is individually owned and decorated. The pool area is beautiful and very spacious. And I'm happy to say peaceful. No loud music or rowdy water activities going on. All in all this is the best resort. Great for kids or couples alone. I highly recommend it here.
