Why Stay At Villa La Estancia Riviera Nayarit
Bring the kids to this Pacific Ocean-front property outside Puerto Vallarta, where suites have hotel luxuries—daily housekeeping, in-room dining, balconies with sunset views—plus the comforts of home (full-size kitchens and laundry rooms).
The only thing separating Villa Estancia, just north of Puerto Vallarta, from the Pacific Ocean waves is a bi-level pool lined with lounge chairs. That's why it's no surprise that the resort's covetable waterfront views are the focal point of the property. Many of the 245 suites, for example, have balconies that overlook the pool and Banderas Bay. Guest rooms, ranging from studios to three-bedroom units starting at 487 square feet, are also well equipped with walk-in closets, granite kitchens, and whirlpool tubs. There are plenty of activities for those who don't just want to lounge: the property has a 17,000-square-foot spa, two tennis courts, and a kid's club, plus easy access to scuba-diving spots, whale-watching vistas, and hiking trails. Need more encouragement? Temperatures in the Mexican Riviera hover around 74 degrees, and the Lic. Gustavo Díaz Ordaz International Airport was recently renovated (it receives direct flights from more than 10 U.S. hubs, including Chicago O'Hare and LAX).
Avis car rentals are available on the property, so you don't have to go back to the airport to book a car for a day trip into town.
Dinner at La Casona, known for its authentic coastal Mexican dishes, should not be missed.
