Great place. Quite, clean, incredible surf/view. Superb restaurant on site. Missing a dishwasher in the villa as well as a washer and dryer for laundry but it is inexpensive to send it out to be done.

Every staff member we crossed paths with was beyond helpful and gave us good tips on the area. I ended up with a medical emergency and never felt concerned as Luis and Winston both on staff made sure I was taken care of at the Villa and at the hospital. Additionally they regularly checked on me back at the Villa....

Villas El Rancho is definitely our home away from home! This is where we come to "chillax"! Always nice to enjoy a snack at Lupita's restaurant and enjoy a beverage with the many visitors that come to El Rancho to do the same.. Lupita's serves some of the best shrimp dishes I have had!

I can't speak for all, but the specific villa I stayed in is run down and badly needs maintenance. The shower downstairs has little to no water pressure, is infested with ants, and is grimy. The kitchen is in need of a face lift and needs many of the tiles on the counters replaced. The furniture in the units are...
