We spent a week at Villa Santa Barbara and couldn’t have been happier. We love the area and have stayed in quite a few hotels/houses. VSB is by far our favorite place in Barra de Navidad. The suites are beautiful, actually nicer than the pictures. Barb, Barry, and Dora helped as much as we needed, and left us alone when...

The apartment looked great in the photos and was even better in person, if that is possible. Everything we needed was right there. Barb and Barry did everything they could to make our stay memorable and fun. They had our fridge stocked with some supplies to get us started, they helped us decide where to go and who to hire...

My husband and I stayed in the Penthouse suite for a month and we had friends and family come down to visit us throughout the month. They were able to stay in the other two suites. So we were together, shared the pool and palapa and the outdoor kitchen, but we all still had our own space and privacy. The...

haunchie, Owner at Villa Santa Barbara, responded to this review

This review was very misleading,we do not advertize Ocean views,we are on the water located on the corner of a canal and that is how we advertise. The reason this guest paid $4200 is she booked the Executive Penthouse suite for herself and one other person for 1 month in peak season.This suite normally rents out at $1250 a week...

We loved our stay at Villa Santa Barbara! Great location, very clean, charming, comfortable suite with all that you need for cooking and entertaining. The French Baker rings a bell each morning as he heads up the canal in his boat delivering fresh baked goods to your door step. Beautiful views of the Grand Bay Hotel in a central, great...

This is what Goldilocks would say if she stayed at the Santa Barbara. We loved this place! The owners go out of their way to make you feel at home, including a happy hour with snacks at the pool bar. With the big kitchen, full size fridge, and awesome grills, we cooked some of our own meals. But the house-keeper,...

This is the third time in 5 years we've stayed at Villa Santa Barbara (Premier Suite). It's the perfect place to get away and relax in the sun. We can't say enough about the hosts, Barb and Barry.
