Why Stay At Villa La Estancia Riviera Nayarit
Plushly kitted out suites at this Pacific Ocean-front property just north of Puerto Vallarta are fit for vacationing with your entire clan.
The sea is the focal point at Villa La Estancia: All buildings face the ocean, and the bi-level free-form infinity pool overlooks a generously sized stretch of beach and the water beyond. Lounge chairs line the sand and guests can snag a hammock for a palm-tree shaded snooze. The 245 suites accommodate families with all the comforts of home including full-size granite kitchens and laundry rooms while enhancing them by luxuries like housekeeping, in-room dining, whirlpool tubs and private balconies with sunset views. Once your offspring is settled at the kids' club, unwind with a tension-relieving Jetlag Massage at the 17,000-square-foot spa or, if you are the active type, serve a few volleys at the tennis courts. The property also offers easy access to prime scuba diving sites and hiking trails. To complete your day in style, book a table at La Casona. Among the resort's multiple dining options including a laid-back poolside grill and an al fresco Pizza Bar, this elegant eatery stands out with expertly prepared authentic coastal Mexican dishes.
Let La Casona's Executive chef teach you about selecting locally grown ingredients and converting them into a gourmet meal complete with wine pairings of Mexican vintages.
Hit the links at nearby world-renowned courses like Flamingos Golf Club or Villa Vallarta, which has hosted a PGA World Cup in the past.
