After reading many reviews of many resorts, I took my fiancée to La Estancia for a special birthday and was not disappointed! Positives:1. Facility and amenities are spectacular! A. Rooms are amazing. Any room above the 4th floor has ocean view. We stayed on the 6th floor at the entrance building (furtherist from the ocean), yet still had an amazing view of the ocean and sunsets. We also had an amazing view of the mountains out the back. B. Pools are beautiful and large! C. Lobby is incredible and very inviting to relax D. Beach! What a beach! Not crowded! Very relaxing and beautiful! E. Restaurants. Truly first class, even the food at the pool side bar was like eating at a fine restaurant. We quite possibly had the best hamburger we've ever eaten here as well as some wonderful salad that Javier recommended as a daily special. 2. Personnel: Never in all my travels have I been given so much personal attention. By the second day, everyone was calling us by name. I don't often call people by name, but these people were absolutely amazing and deserve special accolades. A. Oscar, beach/pool valet. This man was incredible. As soon as your toes hit the sand, he had chairs, umbrellas and drinks on the way! B. Fidel, chief butler. Another incredible man. As I mentioned, we were there on a special birthday. I contacted Fidel to request a special dinner, and he went way above and beyond anything I could have imagined. He took care of every little detail, and made her birthday the most amazing experience. At this point I must also mention Mayra (our chef) for the amazing meal, Enzo (our waiter) for pampering our every want and need & Jose & Manuel (the stewards) for building our amazing beach dining pergola. I must also mention Conchita (our maid) for setting up our room with flowers and a hot bath with flowers pedals for a relaxing and amazing finish to her birthday.C. Raul & Omar (Door man / concierge). Warm, friendly and extremely helpful. I'm not sure of their official titles, but these guys went way above the call of duty every single time we encountered them. They truly made us feel like we were part of their family.D. Fani (waitress) had our table & drinks waiting every morning and has a wonderful sense of humor with a beautiful smile... Always smiling!E. Yamira (guest services). You want anything arranged in the surrounding area, she'll take care of you. She would always go out of her way every time she saw us to greet us, ask us how our stay was going and if there was anything she could do to make it better. She even arranged some little birthday surprises off site that were unexpected and so wonderfully thoughtful. She is a true gem. F. Javier (king of food services). Again, I don't know his official title but he seemed to be the driving force behind the restaurants. Javier really took a personal interest in us, recommending and providing some amazing meals and make sure we were well taken care of. Without his recommendations we would have missed some truly amazing culinary firsts. I'm not even sure what the warmed slab of fruit was at the bottom of the salad he recommended one afternoon but that salad was perfect for a warm poolside meal. G. Ramon & Luis. I'd be remiss if I failed to mention the men who kept our glasses full and the drinks flowing. Never have I had such personal attention. 3. Value! Top shelf everything! I have stayed in all inclusive resorts before and the meals can be good but never anything special. This place is special! The food was 4+ star, unheard of in an all inclusive package. Meals are table served, no buffets, by some of the most attentive wait staff I have ever encountered. Top that off with top shelf drinks and I personally feel La Estancia is the best value I have ever experienced. NegativesI try very hard to be very honest when I give reviews and it is very difficult to find any at La Estancia. However, if you're for the party scene, you should look elsewhere. The shower head in our room was below standard. The output of spray was extremely fine but in such a beautiful shower stall it wasn't too much of a hardship to stand longer to rinse off. ConclusionI was hesitant about staying at an all inclusive with only 1 main restaurant and a pool side grill. But that hesitation was completely unfounded. The restaurants were amazing, the food was incredible and the staff was over the top. I have stayed at many resorts and La Estancia is second to no one and the best value I have ever enjoyed.
We loved our stay at this beautiful resort! It is a great beach for swimming and relaxing. We also loved the activities at the resort next door. The Mayan Princess show featuring our Zumba instructor Abraham and our Aqua Fitness teacher Lauren was a highlight! All of the staff is so friendly - from Sarah at the paddle board check out to Oscar at the pool. They are the best! We hope to come back soon!
We visited on a destination wedding, the service was incredible in every single aspect, every interaction from bell boy, front desk, restaurant, pool attendant was first class.Everybody was helpful, food incredible, suite very clean and very well maintain.The SPA was out of this world defiantly I'm coming back and recommend.
As always we had an incredible visit to Villa la Estancia. This trip, however, was a little different as we had our 18 month old son with us. Needless to stay the various teams at Villa didn't miss a beat and made our experience as consistently phenomenal as in the past 7 years. The front of the house team did an incredible job welcoming us, as always (thank you Angel, Raul, Miguel for making us feel at home and going above and beyond). Not to mention the amazing team at La Casona, specifically Roger and Eduardo. Lastly our friends by the pool that made our stay poolside fun and relaxing: Manuel, Lucio and Oscar (the best!).We love everything about Villa La Estancia and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing, low-key, up-scale setting with phenomenal food and service. The only feedback I'll provide for the management team is as follows:- upgrade the travel cribs to ensure they're more sturdy for 18-24 month olds.- notify the concierge team that routers should be offered to all guests (especially families with baby monitors). We had to pull a few strings to get one...- lastly invest in a few newer members of the wait staff at La Parrilla and the hostess team at La Casona (specifically Alfredo). They seem to lack the La Estancia style of warm, customer first flexibility. It's very obvious they are new and have an bit of an attitude which is not the norm and certainly not exuded by the other staff members. Additional training from senior members will likely help them feel more confident and poised.
Very enjoyable spot. The food and drinks were excellent and the Gerente de Restaurante, Jonatan Montilla Ruiseco, made the dining experiences extra special. Make sure to have the house special Alicia cocktail while enjoying your dinner in the main restaurant.The beach setting is very relaxing and beautiful. The beach staff, especially Oscar and Esrai, were helpful, pleasant and added to the experience.
