Hacienda Del Mar was an exquisite stay for our friend’s 50th birthday celebration. We were a group of 8 adults and 7 teens/kids. The new additions of the larger pool and casita rooms are gorgeous and were a hit with everyone in the group. All the rooms were stunningly decorated and very well appointed. I truly cannot think of an aspect of the design or layout that didn’t feel like great care and consideration had been put into it’s execution. Upon arrival we were greeted by Carlos with drinks and he helped us get settled in (which is no easy task with 7 kids in tow.) Then Chef Ernesto provided the most delightful snacks. We met Adriana, the housekeeper, who was lovely. Chef Ernesto served a birthday menu of steak with bearnaise sauce and grilled vegetables, followed by flan, and the most delicious chocolate cake. I could go on and on because 4 nights wasn’t nearly enough. The property is top notch but Carlos, Ernesto, and Adriana made this a trip our group will never forget.

Experience Amazing!

This was our first time renting a house and everyone at Hacienda del Mar made the experience amazing! The house and grounds were gorgeous, bedrooms and baths were spotless, and everything about the stay was outstanding. We are already figuring out when to return in the (hopefully) near future!

Mother Daughter Vacation

We had a total of 9 in our group, mother/daughter vacation and every single one of us enjoyed our stay at the Villa. The size of the home was perfect, beautiful, and we all loved the location. This home was in a gated community and the area was absolutely beautiful and safe. Many of us walked every day, and also walked to the private beach. The staff was out of this world, our chef Ernesto was an amazing cook and we all already miss his cooking, truly unbelievable meals! Aaron, our person who took care of us daily spoiled us all by serving all our meals daily, and making sure we were always taken care of, also making sure we all had drinks in hand. Isela also checked on us and assisted with excursion planning and transportation. Our house cleaner was awesome and made sure our rooms were perfect daily! Out of all the places I have stayed, this one was unbelievable due to the warm welcome and very caring staff, they made this entire trip (no exaggerating) here. The new pool is Amazing! I truly appreciated the kindness, and professionalism of all the staff. Thank you all for making this trip special for our trip!!!

Nothing Short of Magical!

From the moment we stepped foot onto the property, we were greeted with warm smiles and a genuine sense of care from the staff. The check-in process was seamless, and we were quickly whisked away to a house like no other place we have visited before.

The Hacienda itself is a breathtaking oasis nestled along the picturesque coastline of Puerta Vallarta overlooking the Banderas Bay. The architecture exudes charm and elegance, while the lush gardens and ocean views create a serene ambiance that instantly transports you to a state of tranquility. Waking up each morning and seeing whales in the bay from our master suite was something we will never forget.

The house was nothing short of perfection. Impeccably designed with attention to every detail, it boasted modern amenities alongside traditional Mexican decor, creating a harmonious blend of comfort and culture. The plush bedding ensured a restful night’s sleep, and waking up to the smell of breakfast each morning prepared by Ernesto was something special.

Throughout our stay, we indulged in the cuisine offered by Ernesto. Each day we customized a menu based on my family’s desires. From fresh seafood to authentic Mexican dishes, each meal was customized for us and was a culinary delight.

The amenities at Hacienda del Mar are second to none. Whether lounging by the infinity pool, indulging in a rejuvenating spa treatment brought in to us, or partaking in the various activities in the city, there was never a dull moment. The staff went above and beyond to ensure that every need was met, making us feel pampered and cherished throughout our entire stay. Thank you Carlos!

Overall, our time at Hacienda del Mar was nothing short of magical. We left feeling rejuvenated, relaxed, and utterly spoiled by the unmatched hospitality and beauty of this remarkable house. I cannot recommend it highly enough and cannot wait to return to create more cherished memories in paradise.

The Staff was Wonderful

The staff was wonderful and helpful, they went above and beyond.  We love coming here, out favorite is Ernestos food!  He is amazing.  We loved the new outside BBQ and Grill area.  The bigger pool area was our favorite.  The art work is beautiful and we enjoyed all the new additional pieces.  Looking forward to returning again soon.

Birthday Celebration

A group of 10 of us stayed at Hacienda Del Mar to celebrate my wife’s 30th birthday and we had the most amazing experience!! The villa itself is simply breathtaking, affording guests spectacular views of the ocean everywhere you look. The pool and outdoor spaces truly transport you to a dream vacation that you simply can’t imagine until you’re there soaking in the sunshine from the pool while admiring the ocean and mountains in the distance. The staff was phenomenal and went above and beyond to make our stay memorable, even going so far as to decorate the villa with birthday decor as a heartfelt surprise. The meals prepared by the chef were incredible, the round-the-clock service from the bartender and housekeeper was top-notch, and the property manager and on-site concierge were unbelievably helpful in providing information and helping us coordinate everything from groceries to airport transportation to a professional mariachi band. There is nothing about the experience that any of us would have changed and it was better than we could have ever imagined. If you’re looking to book an unforgettable Puerto Vallarta vacation for a large group in an spectacular villa with picturesque views, an incredible pool, meticulously cared for outdoor spaces, easy private beach access, and a full staff that exceeded all expectations in making our trip a complete paradise, then Hacienda Del Mar is the villa for you. We reminisce about the trip constantly and cannot wait to visit again!!

One Of The Most Beautiful Homes

One of the most beautiful homes I’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting, let alone staying in. Every inch of the property is beautifully appointed. The attention to detail is impressive. The staff was exceptional. Ernesto prepared our meals deliciously and with flare. Carlos was always there to accommodate our needs and Adrianna kept the house and our room’s clean and fresh. The entire family throughly enjoyed our stay. We will definitely return.

Spectacular Property

This is a spectacular property, beautifully maintained.  Everything was outstanding in all areas.  They went above and beyond, tried very hard to please and always with a great attitude.  A vacation to remember.
