beds are comfortable, water is safe
the beds were super comfy and pillows were cozy
the condo is spacious, spotless and comfortable
the decor in the room was very unique and the beds were super comfortable
everything was provided from the kitchen all the way down to sunscreen

everything was clean, ready for our family
you also share the balcony so can go between rooms that way
we didn't spend much time in the condo, but i almost wished we had since it was so lovely
melba and the staff at villa could not have been more helpful
she shared my excitement and gave me great encouragement along the way
i would also like to state how helpful melba, the owner, was in communicating with me before during and after our trip
one dil returned to california and the other moved to another hotel with our son when he arrived
too many wonderful places to even mention here
and the world renowned "city on the bay" of puerto vallarta is just a 30 min cab ride away
the ground floor location is very convenient and steps from the pool and walkway to the lobby or beach
the resort is within walking distance (or short cab ride) of the beautiful town of bucerias that sports first class dining and shopping
units closer to the beach are generally better, particularly for view and sun
the staff at estancia, the food and safe but environment and the proximity to restaurants in bucerias make this destination a no-brainer
