Five Star Review
March 28, 2017
Villa Encantada is a jewel perched on several levels on the cliff in Puerto Mio, a 20 minute walk from the north end of Zihua, and about 25 minutes from the market area. The photos are entirely accurate and yet cannot capture the actual breathtaking beauty of the rooms, the decks, the views to the sea, and that astonishing infinity pool. Yet truly it is the staff that make this villa an outstanding and most memorable holiday. It was hard to consider going out for dinner when Socorro and Perla could make sumptuous meals including the famed coconut shrimp, excellent enchiladas con pollo, and puerco con salsa verde. Breakfast treats like soaps, chilaquiles, huevos rancheros… Fresh ceviche for lunch, or quesadillas with guacamole and salsa fresca! We were spoiled all week long! Carlos, the Manager, is likewise amazing. His helpful suggestions about massages in the villa, arranging for transport to and from the airport, picking up groceries on our first night, all these as well as arranging a fantastic birthday piñata celebration – he was always there when we needed him. Professional and warm, he was lovely. In sum, Carlos was over the top!!! Adrian too was an excellent addition to the ease of our stay. The pool was well cared for, the grounds well kept, and maintenance attended to. Each of the staff were wonderfully present and available, yet never intrusive. I hesitate to write such a positive review, because selfishly we want to come back to Villa Encantada. Yet when such amazing places filled with great people exist, it is also important to share that experience. Should you book this place, you won’t be disappointed!
