My family and I stayed 10 nights at the Villa Encantada in Puerto Vallarta. Our expectations were not only met, but exceeded.. The Villa was amazing. It was large, well appointed and beautifully lit. We were amazed how comfortable 7 adults and 3 children could be in a 5 bedroom estate. The villa was so beautiful and self contained, we almost had no need to explore the rest of Puerto Vallarta. The staff on hand (Alex, Isabel and Walter) catered to our every whim. Alex was always on hand with helpful tips and suggestions for activities around town as well as any Spanish to English translations, that we often needed. The always smiling Isabel, made sure the villa was clean and well stocked. Walter, the chef, was a magician in the kitchen. From his tasty Pina Coladas at poolside to the local lobster, Walter gave my family and I a culinary master class with every meal. At breakfast, the mango and cream cheese crepes, were the all-around favorite by a landslide. Having all of the conveniences of home really added to our comfort. The large, flat-screen TV really helped with the young ones. Having the satellite TV, the kids could watch all of their shows and cartoons. A welcome amenity when the adults needed an afternoon nap. The villa was very well connected. I had access to high speed wireless internet for my laptop and free phone service to Canada. Overall, I have but one complaint; it was over all too soon! Highly recommended, 5 stars.
