It is a beautiful property right on a very nice beach. All of the staff were extremely nice. We have traveled extensively and would go back. We had one hiccup with the first room. There was no tub faucet or plug so you couldn't shower or take a bath. Which of course we didn't discover until the next day when we got up to shower. They said they didn't have any rooms like ours and would have to fix the tub. We all know that would have taken at least a day. We would have hoped that they would have upgraded us to the one bedroom condo next to us which was vacant for free but they made us pay for the upgrade. :( Once we moved over all was good. But again they should have upgraded us for no charge in our opinion.

All Inclusive ISN'T All Inclusive

When we arrived we were notified that the $120 extra per person per night for all inclusive isn't all inclusive at all! It didn't include alcoholic drinks with our plan, only water and tea. Basically it is a cafeteria plan. When we spoke to the hotel they told us there wasn't anything they could do but the new policy doesn't include alcohol and they didn't give a refund. Travelocity website still states all inclusive but once you purchase it will say only meals! Buyers beware. Neither Travelocity or The Villa Group will honor this FALSE ADVERTISEMENT. EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED

Villa La Estancia is a sophisticated, family-oriented property that favors an exclusive and peaceful environment. Consequently, a traditional all-inclusive option with alcohol is not marketed, nor is it offered by any of the online travel agencies including Travelocity. The Full Board plan that we do offer includes non-alcoholic beverages and a dozen world-class dining options across Villa Group’s 3-property complex on Medano Beach. We seriously regret any confusion encountered by the reviewer, and kindly remind her that the price of the plan is $85, not $120.

First class resort

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet
Excellent concierge service. Limited ocean view. Would visit again as the price is reasonable. We were traveling with two other families and the other two got upgrades.

Awesome location, awesome hotel!

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
This is our second stay this year at Villa La Estancia and our fourth visit to Cabo. I highly recommend this hotel. I have an 18 year old daughter and she loved it as well. Getting the two bedroom allowed her and a friend to have their privacy (as well as us!) Great room great staff, great food. I cannot say enough good things. Kudos to Ramon and Leo at the pool, Jimmy at the front desk and all the staff. We loved it and are already planning our next trip!

Fantastic Experience, so impressed with the service!

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet
I thought the hotel was beautiful and clean. When we arrived the hotel reservations were ready for us and as we checked in we were given a hand exfoliation and a guided tour of the premises. I couldn't have been more impressed. The restaurant was delicious and the service impeccable. Outstanding spa with massage therapists that are very well trained. The pool side staff were friendly, and top notch. Our towels were laid out on our chairs for us as soon as we arrived each day. My husband and I would tell everyone about this hotel and we plan to go back.

The hotel was Amazing!

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, friendly staff
From the moment we arrived we were welcomed. We had a problem with our refridgerator and they gave us a free room upgrade to a suite. Definitely get a suite if you are staying here. The suites are like a home away from home, with a full kithchen, dining room, living room, washer and dryer, two bathrooms, and a master room... they are perfect for a family traveling with children. In the living room is a couch bed and in the master room is a Cali King size bed and it is superior in my opionion (10 sleep number if you know what I mean.) The Pool is amazing, with a bar and dinning at your finger tips. One of three Jacuzzi's over looks the ocean with a bon fire right next to it, which you can enjoy late night. Overall this is a great hotel, you never have to leave because they have shopping and a market on the property. Check it out you wont regret it!!! I am going again in March!

Villa La Estancia - our experience

Room was really nice. We had the suite and there was plently of room. This is hotel is a residential type resort. Owners own several weeks here and it is considered a private residence. We were pretty much roped into a timeshare presentation for the hotel next door. Only got a free breakfast, a gold card (saved us about $10 - not a big deal) and we were asked to pay the tip at breakfast. Definitly not worth our time but couldn't seem to get out of it - they were very persistent. The first person Brenda was nice about it, but then she brought in the 'big guns' who I disliked very much. I did not feel he was making true statements. Brenda finally saw I was getting upset about the whole thing and decided to cut us loose. It was hard getting chairs around the pool. I'd recommend getting there early in the morning if you want to sit poolside. All of the people were very nice and helpful. The tour desk gave us about a 20% discount on the activities we booked with the hotel. That was an unexpected but great! Also, we were very happy with the recommendations from the tour desk. We ate at the poolside cafe for lunch most days. The food was very good. They even come out to the chairs on the beach to take orders. I really liked that. The maids came very late each day - around 5pm, which made things very inconvenient when freshening up for the evening. The hotel is about a mile away from town. It is a safe walk and a great way to burn off the margarita calories. The bed was hard - hated it.

Beautiful place

It is a really nice place. The personnel are very pleasant. Considering a long flight, with all the time share sales people hounding you at the airport, a long shuttle ride, all we wanted to do was get into our swim suits and start enjoying our vacation. Check in was quite slow, and the room was not ready! The time share purchase presentation at the place is an option. It is worth it to go to it. You will receive a "gold card". It does get you 15-20% off food and beverage. Even though we where offered much better deals at the airport and walking around. Be aware, there are time share sales people all over! Food at La Casona is very expesive, and just ok tasting. But convient. There is the supermarket across the street , with a bakery/lucheon. Buy your beer their and bring it up to your place. The beach is nice and clean. The local beach salespeople are a hassel also. Some offer you "anything you need" , meaning drugs. Becareful walking aroung town, which is about 20 minute walk. Walking into town during the day is safe, but I wouldn't recommend it at night. Taxi is $*, expensive for a 1 mile walk, and the drivers don't have change very often. If you go SCUBA diving, go see Oscar at Deep Blue, and Cabo Adventures for whale watching on the Zodiacs. Don't get me wrong. Villa la Estancia and Cabo is beatiful and fun, you just have to be careful.
