Hacienda Alegre is a unique creature in the Bay of Banderas located near the very popular vacation destination, Puerto Vallarta. The main house stands on a 25-foot cliff overlooking the beach. You can enjoy sweeping and uninterrupted views east to Puerto Vallarta, with Matisse-style mountains providing a backdrop right around the horseshoe-shaped bay. To the west, you can look along the rugged coastline towards the Pacific Ocean where surfing is a daily delight. The sunsets are magic!
During the winter and early spring seasons, the bay is visited by whales and dolphins, and other interesting sea characters. Every day, summer or winter,... the theater lines of pelicans gliding along the tips of the ocean waves never cease to amaze one!
Hacienda Alegre is the best location on the Bay to experience all these beautiful happenings of nature, and Hacienda Alegre is the only residential property in Banderas Bay offering an expansive ocean frontage, tennis court, family-size swimming pool, games room, and a spacious garden of tropical surprises - all in one place! It's an ideal venue for large families, special business and get-togethers.

We rent a lot of vacation homes, but this experience was sheer delight. The owners, the staff including the manager here, the well maintained grounds, the lovely rooms, the view and the diversions could not have been better. Finally a truly relaxing vacation. There is no point in leaving the hacienda. We also made a brilliant decision by hiring Carlos the chef full-time for the week, as he spoiled us silly with his creations and perfect service. (Contact the owners or me for his contact info.) Yes, it's hot in July we had a terrific time.
Would you recommend this vacation rental to a friend?

We had the pleasure of spending the Christmas holiday with our whole family (from ages 67 to 4 years old) at this magical location. Although the pictures look beautiful, they cannot do it justice!! We got full use of the pool area and tennis courts and the gardens are beautiful and immaculately kept. There was plenty of room for all of us and the rooms were first rate. The house staff were very helpful and friendly and went out of their way to accommodate our every wish - from amazing meals, to margaritas and appetizers by the pool, to a New Year\'s Eve bonfire and fireworks on the beach and, of course, the burro rides!! The homemade salsa and guacamole were amazing (we had them every day) and the fish tacos are to die for!! Thanks to Pablo, Martha, Ellie and Roman in particular, for all their assistance in making this a vacation of a lifetime!! Everything was so perfect, we never left the property for the 10 days!!
