Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Villa La Estancia Beach Resort & Spa Riviera Nayarit is often lauded for its elegant atmosphere, with live music adding a touch of sophistication, although a few guests find the piano volume intrusive. The hotel's amenities, including the commendable pool and beach service, are frequently praised, along with the exquisite food and pristine facilities. Nestled in a serene location that's conveniently close to local towns, the resort boasts spectacular views. While the rooms are generally celebrated for their spaciousness and comfort, some visitors have encountered issues with maintenance. The level of service at the resort is regularly highlighted as outstanding, from the poolside to the dining areas. Cleanliness is a standout feature, with guests consistently impressed by the spotless environment and meticulous housekeeping. However, the perceived value is marred by reports of unexpected fees and pricing concerns.

Seattle, Washington8 contributions
Not having been back at Villa La Estancia for 2.5 years, I was interested to see if the place our family loved so much had changed. It was nice to see that while some things had changed, it is still overall a great place to stay. I realized yet again that what makes the place so special is the core group of people that have been with the hotel for many years with a few notable additions. Upon arrival you’re greeted by the bellboys with Omar being the nicest one always greeting you with a kind smile. The crew at La Casona is great with Lorena being the standout during the breakfast and Rogelio and Eduardo expertly managing the dinner guests. We have been very surprised to discover that Eduardo has a wonderful voice and will actually perform a little show during the evenings. If you’re a beach/pool person, the folks helping the guests to find beds and umbrellas are great. They all seem to be new but attentive with Jesus being absolutely the best. He is always on a lookout for guests who need help and always finds solutions. When Oscar left many years ago, I never thought the management would find a worthy replacement and for years they didn’t seem to be able to. With Jesus they found that missing part of quickness and attentiveness that sometimes lacked in the past. I have to give a special mention to La Parilla crew. The team has mostly stayed the same over many years and they’re experts at what they do. All the bartenders and waiters are awesome with Lucio and Nico being the mainstay and managing the busy times of thirsty guests drowning them with drinks orders while maintaining an amazing attitude. Ricardo, Josias, Josue, Raul, Santana, Ernesto and, the new addition, always smiling Daniel make this crew so wonderful.

Spent 9 days at Estancia! Super clean and beautiful hotel. Pool is great and Rooms are great as well. Best to book a 1 bedroom if a longer stay with kids as the laundry is important as is the use of a kitchen and dining table. We got a studio for two adults and two 4/6 young kids felt small for our length of stay but we couldn't upgrade because they were fully booked. House keeping came everyday changed towels, sometimes left water and also did a turn down service! Kids club was great for the kids, Ladies at the kids club were great! Im sad I can't remember their names and mention them. We did all inclusive, we enjoyed the food especially the breakfast buffet with service was great with Daniela, Esmarelda and Carolina!! Dinner at La Casona with servers Ronaldo (amazing singing voice and Rigalo as our severs the two nights we ate there. Lobster was amazing. Taco Bar was great at Flamingo Palmar next door. Italian restaurant went above and beyond to try to keep us dry the day we ate there as it was a rare rainy day! Tico did a great job trying his best with the rain! At the pool there was great service, Jesus works his butt off running around trying to get everyone the seats they want and towels! VERY hard worker. Raul gave us great service multiple days at the pool as well, all of the staff and bar/restuarant staff are great. Omar and Hugo were the bellman that helped us most often, they were always very happy to call a cab (super quick) and were also great about telling us when we requested the cab how much it should cost. Drinks were watered down every time, I wasn't there to get drunk but just wanted a few "GOOD" drinks. Even my martini was watered down, which was a great disappointment. The night time entertainment with buffet was great fun! I wouldn't do the AI next time.

My time at La Estancia was wonderful. The food and amenities were superb. More importantly, certain people made my time perfect. Josue Cortes was the best at la Parilla. He and Isasti created a Valentine surprise for my wife that was beautiful and romantic I also wanted to mention Imelda at El Patrón and José at the pool as well. But Josue and his kindness went above and beyond as he was very attentive and kind to my wife and me.

Excellent food, good beaches, very comfortable rooms. Beautiful landscaping. Could use a few more umbrellas around the pool area and some variety in the pool music. We did the all inclusive ocean view, so very easy to stay on the property. Lots of activities or peace and quiet. Very nice gym. Best pool service from a great guy Santana!! Checked with us often and took care of us for many days by the pool!!

My husband and I spent the last week at La Villa Estancia resort. The property is beautifully maintained and the location on the pristine beach was perfect. We opted for the all inclusive option and dined at all of the restaurants at the Estancia as well as at Los Flamingos next door. We enjoyed the variety as well as the ambiance at each venue and dined Al fresco most of the time. The staff was very friendly and eager to please us. We especially enjoyed the friendly greeting of Esmeralda each morning for breakfast as well as the attention of Josue who kept us well-hydrated on our beach chairs daily. Our rooms were impeccably cleaned each day and our beds were turned down each night when we were out to dinner. Towels were replaced and chocolates were provided. Our snack refrigerator was replenished often. We both had massages at the gorgeous spa and I even opted for a second one because Lupita did such a wonderful job. We will certainly consider returning to this resort for our next beach vacation to Mexico!

Lovely place. Villa La Estancia is relaxed and generally quiet. The staff take such wonderful care of their guests. Santana was always attentive as we sat poolside- he took care with our orders and made sure we had everything we wanted or needed.

We stayed at La Estancia from February 2nd through the 20th. We had great poolside and beach service. Santana was absolutely the best at taking care of any needs we had. He had a positive and can do attitude. The Cuban sandwich was delicious and the best thing on the menu.

We had a great stay. The beach was great and Daniel and Santana provided great service while we were there. The food at the pool bar/restaurant was very good and Josue provided friendly and fabulous service. Raul the bell boy was helpful on arrival and departure. The Asian restaurant was our favorite food. The breakfast buffet was also wonderful. The food at the Italian restaurant was average but the waitstaff was the best we had. Arturo, Raul, Cesar, Juan, Rafael, Miguel, and Aldo felt like old friends by the end of the meal.

Very disappointing experience. From never getting someone to come by and take drink/ food orders despite asking many times and even being given a menu only to have no one come back after an hour. You have to get up early to get a chair on the beach and you might get anl umbrella if you're lucky. However, today was the worst. We had been sitting by the pool for hours and fairly comfortable, Then one of the pool attendants started moving our chairs and umbrellas without asking to accommodate other guests. While we were trying to understand why, they rudely pushed my chair over my bag containing phones and other valuables. We will absolutely not be coming back here and would encourage others not to as well.

Great stay. We enjoyed our time at the resort. The staff was all very friendly and attentive, especially Octavio at el Patrón next store, Hugo the bellman and all the staff at the restaurant/bar by the estancia pool. We booked through Brad and Joey who were very helpful and added the all inclusive package at check in. If you plan to eat mostly at the resort (estancia and flamingos next door) it seemed like a pretty good deal overall. That said if you like wine like we do you will be disappointed (certainly not a deal breaker, lots of other options 😉).
