The most luxurious beachfront villa in Puerto Vallarta. Come and enjoy an unparalleled experience with breathtaking panoramic ocean views and five star service all in an unbeatable location.. Prepare to be pampered. A trip to Villa Estrella Mar is unlike any other vacation you have taken. You'll enjoy gracious hospitality and a level of service that is unparalleled from our full time staff of ten. Attention to the details is what we pride ourselves on, from small touches like fresh cut flowers, daily housekeeping and nightly turn down services, to our chef's creating high end restaurant quality dishes working around any dietary requirements.
Each bedroom suite is a marvel of elegance with the charm of Mexico, all uniquely decorated and filled with original artwork collected throughout Mexico and South America. The best part is we are located just a short walk into Old Town Vallarta, right on the beach, and you'll have a view from every room in the villa. Whether you are coming for a family reunion, couple's getaway, or celebrating a milestone birthday or wedding, this is the property for you. It is truly a once in a lifetime experience for you and your guests... unless of course you decide to make your trip an annual event!
Puerto Vallarta's iconic 22,000 square foot traditional spanish colonial architecture is nestled into the hillside on 380 feet of secluded beachfront.
A collection of original folk art and furniture has been curated throughout Mexico, Central and South America. It is now housed in an indescribably unique setting.
Our location isn't just amazing because we are on the beach. We are a ten minute walk down a cobblestone street to the heart of Zona Romantica in Old Town Puerto Vallarta which is full of exquisite galleries, world renown restaurants and great shopping.
Located on Banderas Bay, you'll have a view of the ocean from every room. Enjoy watching locals fishing from small ponga boats, tourists heading to Los Arcos to go scuba dive, and whales breaching from the expansive wrap around balconies. The sunsets are to die for.
Two private in-house chefs who will create anything your heart (and stomach) desires! They can also accommodate any special dietary concerns to make sure every guest's need is met.
Well, it is very difficult to adequately convey the spectacular nature of the Villa Estrella del Mar. The website and descriptions of the Villa are awesome. As you research, you get a vague idea as to the beauty of the facility, the unbelievable views, and the amenities provided. However, if you are lucky enough to see this place, and stay there, I guarantee you will be blown away. Each master suite is unique, in perfect repair, and gorgeous. We stayed in a suite, which overlooks the pool, complete with a private outdoor shower, the most beautifully tiled bathtubs I have ever seen, and many beautiful pieces of art. Our suite had views of the pool area and a panoramic view of the sea. Falling asleep to the sound of the surf was an enormous treat. Each of the suites at the Villa is unique, and none would disappoint. The common areas at the Villa (it is huge) are breathtaking. (This sounds over the top, but it is absolutely true). The pool area, great room and terraces, the kitchen…..all are beautifully decorated, yet cozy and welcoming, incorporating many fine pieces of art. There was so much to see that we were still discovering art and portions of the Villa we had not yet seen by the 5th day of our stay. The staff at the Villa, including the chief, Paco, chefs Lupe and Lola, and Jovanni, who, among other things, made certain we were never without a pina colada, cola or margarita, were professional, personable and very good at their specialties. The professionalism extended across all the staff, including Ana, Patty, Arturo and Ismael. Among our favorite Villa staffers was the mysterious Laundry Fairy, who surreptitiously removed dirty laundry from our suite each morning and delivered back perfectly clean laundry the following day. We never caught him/her doing this, but we thank you! As this review is too long, I will simply state that staying at the Villa is a once in a lifetime experience. We will be getting a group together so we can go back. This is the perfect destination.
From the very beginning, this retreat exceeded our expectations. The pictures you posted--as wonderful as they are--do not do Estrella Mar justice. It is an extraordinary home with extraordinary touches (such at amazing art and artifacts) in every corner. It's hard to find a spot where the ocean can't be seen and the roar of the tide experienced. Pure bliss. There are just so many places to enjoy oneself within the home. The bedrooms (especially the suites) defy description. The word "huge" does not sufficiently describe how big and beautiful they are. And the staff was amazing (and fun!), simply wanting us to be happy and helping us navigate the wonderful choices that are available in this home, and the surrounding area. The weather was perfect--pure luck, we know--but a reminder how nice Puerto Vallarta is most times of the year. We hated to leave, but carry great memories.
An outstanding experience! Every aspect of Villa Estrella Mar is so well thought out and professional. Without a doubt the most fun I've had in Puerto Vallerta. The property itself is a stunning mix of Mexican charm and integrated art. Between the professional chef, poolside drinks, and amazing staff I can't imagine staying anywhere else. Go! You won't regret it!
The house is incredible with scenic views sprawling over 4 or 5 floors. The staff is sensational; they pay close attention to every detail and go above and beyond to ensure your comfort and happiness. The city is just a few minutes walk, but far enough to be removed from any noise or business. This is an excellent place to escape, feel pampered, and appreciate the natural beauty and culture Mexico has to offer.
First off, Jordan was extremely helpful and responsive to all my questions about the property before booking. Jordan also helped coordinate transportation and food, prior to our arrival. This coordination took all the planning out of our trip, which made a stress free vacation. I read several reviews about the villa, before I booked. A number of guests complimented Paco and his staff. After our stay, I can confirm all of the positive comments were legitimate. They truly went above and beyond to meet our needs. Whether that meant delaying breakfast, running to the store for more drinks, or making dinner reservations, they did it all. Plus, the food was better at the villa than in town! Lastly the location just can't be beat. The views were incredible, the pool was perfect, the beach was great, and downtown was just a 5min drive. All of my guests were absolutely blown away by everything the property had to offer. This was like any other vacation I have ever booked. It convenience, luxury, and relaxation in one package. I will definitely be making another trip back. Trip of a life time!
We had a group of 15 stay at Villa Estrella Mar for my husband's 60th birthday. From the first time I contacted Jordan until the moment we left, everything was superb. I am a planner and had many questions for Jordan before our arrival. I wanted everything to be perfect for my husband's birthday. Jordan was informative, patient and very generous with her time. When we arrived at the Villa, all I can say is WOW! The house is absolutely stunning. The main floor with the living room and kitchen is spacious with several different seating areas and a cool breeze blowing through the house. The bedrooms were also gorgeous. The Master suite and Jr. Master Suite are regal and grand. And the four other suites were also beautiful - very grand and spacious in their own right. We stayed in the Master and I can say that I would have been very happy in any of the other 5 rooms. The only one with a different feel is the twin room - quite a bit smaller though still with a balcony overlooking the pool. This would be perfect for kids, or fine for a single person. The staff really made the stay special. Paco was so helpful, patient and kind. Gibran was wonderful as well and Lupe's meals were delicious. We ate at the Villa every night and morning which is so much nicer for a large group than venturing into a restaurant. The breakfasts were my favorite, especially the french toast. And every meal we had was so delicious. There were many other staff members around as well who were so gracious - Arturo and others who were quietly cleaning the rooms and doing maintenance of the property, in a very non-obtrusive way. There were even some men taking down some coconuts on a nearby tree for maintenance, and when they were done, the brought the Coconuts to us with a straw to drink the Coconut water. Another nice touch, just to give you a feel for it, was every night during dinner, they would quietly go into each room, close all the blinds, and turn on the AC, so when you went to your room at night it was cool and ready for a good night's rest. The pool was heated the the perfect temperature so we could languish in it for hours. We even went swimming at night after dinner. The more adventurous ones in the group walked down to the beach a few steps below and went for long swims over to the pier during the day. Many in our group were already talking about returning next year. This is an outstanding place for a family reunion or other group gathering
Staying at the Villa Estrella Mar has been one of the best vacation experiences I have ever had. We went with family and a big group of friends for a special birthday celebration. You cannot beat the location, the incredible views, detailed guest suites with incredible treasures, and a staff who's #1 priority is to make sure you have the most memorable experience you could imagine. This place is special, and I know that this was the first of many trips my family will make to PV........ just to stay here. While Mexico was always a vacation destination. This place has made PV our go to. WE LOVED IT!!!!
Villa Estrella Mar is by far one of the best vacation destinations I have experienced. After having been to Puerto Vallarta many times over the years, I didn’t think it could get any better. Boy was I wrong! Villa Estrella Mar far surpassed my expectations. The property beautifully represents the best in authentic decor, the staff masterfully provides for every need while having fun with the guests, and words cannot do the views complete justice. You have to experience Villa Estrella Mar to fully understand how magical it is. Have some coconut shrimp and a frozen margarita by the pool, you’ll be in heaven!
Villa Estrella Mar is beyond words. From the private location, the isolated beach out front, the friendly staff, to the gorgeous views, everything about this place is amazing. My wife and I stayed here for half a week as part of a group of friends renting the entire villa for the week. We had the full meal service, and everything was fresh and delicious. The housekeeping was like a team of ninjas - you hardly saw them, but everything was cleaned and spotless before you knew it. During dinner there's a turn down service where they close all the shutters and kick on the AC's so the rooms are ready to sleep in at the end of your day. The pool is great and a welcome freshwater option to lounge your day in or around - it's the perfect temperature for cooling off but not ever becoming cold. The beach access is great - it's flanked by two rocky points, keeping it quite private and providing some neat tide pools for exploring and snorkeling. Access to town is just a short walk down the road, or the staff will gladly call you a taxi to get you wherever you'd like to go. The rooms are beautifully decorated, open layout, each with a patio for taking in the views. The master suite is awe-inspiring, with the best views in the entire villa, and basically taking up the entire top floor. Since the villa is on a hill, there's two elevators to get you up and down, so stairs are never much of an issue. I could go on and on about the villa - it really is worth every penny and more.
16 of us just spent a week at Estrella Mar and had an incredible time. The food was fantastic. I cannot believe the selection and quality of food that Lola and Lupe were able to deliver. We gave them a standing ovation every night. Order the fish with potatoes for one of your dinners, as well as the Conchinita Pibil - you won’t be disappointed. We ate at several nice restaurants - La Palapa, etc..., and the food at our house was on par or better than any restaurant that we visited. Plus, the 16 of us would spend the evening around the dinner table and enjoy the view and sunset from our own home. The staff was friendly and more than willing to help. They helped us with everything from arranging airport transportation to setting up a birthday surprise party. Paco will be your lifeline. He will give you advice on what to do, recommendations for places to go, and logistical suggestions on how to get there. The house - there are very few houses that could compare to Estrella Mar. it is so big that it will take you a few days to find all of the rooms. It is enormous and authentically decorated. It is like you have moved into an art and sculpture gallery for a week. The staff keep the house perfectly clean, which is a feat given its size. The whole house opens up so you can see the view, which is simply breathtaking from every balcony, the living room and the dining room. The location could not have been better, it felt secluded, yet if you walk 150 yards you will be at the beach clubs (but you cannot hear them or anything else). In short, we cannot recommend Estrella Mar, the incredible staff, and the very response owner highly enough. If you are on the fence, BOOK IT AS FAST AS YOU CAN!
Villa Estrella Mar was the perfect place for my birthday bash. It is so expansive, the staff is superb, the pool is the perfect size. Did some one say "Margarita"...yes, and we did as well. The staff keeps your drinks of choice coming with perfect consistency. On site massages add an incredible spa feel to the already perfect spaces of this Villa. Pictures don't do it justice...the sunsets, views of old town, views of the ocean and the wildlife of the sea are all part of the ambiance. Work with Jordan to plan your own perfect event for family and friends.

We had a group of 12 and everyone loved it! The staff was phenomenal - Jordan, Paco, Lupe - all made sure our stay was perfect. In working with Jordan to book everything, no detail was left unknown. She was prompt, informative and friendly! The house itself was immaculate, enormous, beautifully decorated and pristine! The staff worked so hard each day to make sure we were having a great time. The setting over the water was serene and the most beautiful we've seen! A quick 5 minute stroll to downtown PV was perfect for an afternoon of exploring. Overall, we can't say enough great things about this place!
This is the perfect getaway! Truly carefree living. The staff takes care of everything. The villa is beautiful and spacious. Enchanted spaces were found around every turn, with the curved architecture and the Mexican art throughout, it had a delightful sense of whimsy. It certainly feels unique due to the art and the design. You wake up to the sounds of waves on the beach and the smell of bacon. I would go back in a heartbeat.
After reading so many prior reviews, I am at a loss to add much new information, and can only echo so many earlier comments; I affirm each of those superlatives! The Villa is beyond fabulous! The architecture takes full advantage of the spectacular site; gorgeous views are offered from every vantage. Furnishings and art are exquisite. The location is perfect. The kitchen genius of Lupe and Lola was regularly on display (we seldom had meals out). We spent hours in and around the delightful pool; staff spoiled us with snacks and drinks. Every aspect of this location is worthy of 5 stars. I cannot wait to make plans for our return!
