“Beautiful home, beautiful beach, wonderful people!”

First and foremost, this property is EXACTLY as it appears in the online pictures. As mentioned in other reviews, we thought at first it must be too good to be true. But we were delighted to discover this place is as beautiful as it looks! My husband and I stayed along with our two young children in the 3 bedroom 'duplex' unit of the home for one week. It was perfect luxury. The furnishings are gorgeous and there are innumerable tasteful personal touches in the décor - vases, lanterns, seashells (many of which we put away to protect them from our 3 year old!) that give the villa a truly homey feel. Emma met with us personally on our arrival to deliver and assemble a high chair, infant bath and good-quality, seemingly brand-new playpen for our infant daughter. Stephany the concierge was wonderful. Always friendly and helpful she was even able to procure beach toys for our son. Everything we could want or need was included - air-conditioning, gym, wifi, surround speaker system that connected easily to our iphones with USB. We used the private chef service. Our chef Daniel was talented and very accommodating to ensure options palatable to our preschooler! I recommend his roast lobster, 'fish with passion-fruit sauce' and creole chicken! Sol y Mar restaurant is a 3 minute walk from the villa, located directly on the beach, and looked wonderful, although with our young children, we did not have the opportunity to try it.The days were filled with swimming in the private pool, the resort pool or at the beach. We spent our evenings sipping wine in the private hot tub or on the large terrace gazing at the stars. The village is small, and minimally developed, but you will have not trouble procuring the staples you might need. If you are looking for designer shopping, five star dining and crowds of tourists, this not the place for you. However, if you are interested in relaxing in quiet luxury and mingling with friendly people on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, playa las ballenas is it. If I were compelled to identify the worst thing about our experience, about the only thing I can come up with is that the toilets are low-flow, which is really only mildly irritating. I would highly recommend Villa Ribera Mar and would stay there again! Happy travels!

The house is beautiful, pictures don't do it justice. The beach is very close, much closer than it looks like on google maps. Service is great, you even have your concierge, who takes care of running errands, and I definitely recommend hiring the chef. Can't wait to go back!

Very nice view, very confortable for a family of 7, grandparents, children, grandchildren and maid, nice terrace with jacuzzi and small pool for the grandchildren, very close to the beach. The only thing I would recomend to owner is to place a mosquito screen in the terrace. Good chef service. Maid and valet very friendly and cooperative. Receptionist at arrival also very friendy and cooperative. Highly recommended, very pleased with my stay, will certainly come back.
