Puerto Vallarta lies along Banderas Bay, the second largest bay in the Western Hemisphere. It is located 352 kilometers (219 miles) from Guadalajara, the state capital of Jalisco, and is nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Madre mountain range. The region has many forests, rivers and waterfalls, with an average temperature of 27C (80F).
Playa Mismaloya, gained fame from the film "The Night of the Iguana", and became a popular celebrity hangout at the time. Now, visitors flock to see the impressive rock formations of Los Arcos emerge from the bay's crystalline waters, which are great for diving and discovering incredible underwater mountains and steeps. The City Hall has murals painted by Manuel Lepe, and the Malecon (sea wall) is adorned with romantic bronze sculptures. Whats more, the streets of downtown offer shops and galleries that sell local paintings and sculptures of local artists. The city, known for its top-notch services, also has golf courses, boutiques and a marina.
In Puerto Vallarta you can enjoy the exquisite regional cuisine of Jalisco, that so many people have come to love, and the terraces of open-air restaurants, where you can watch cruise ships roll in as you take in an incredible sunset.
Sport fishing is just one of many activities you can do during your stay in Puerto Vallarta. Each year, during the month of November, the International Sailfish Fishing Tournament takes place. Other activities available in this region are eco-tourism, extreme sports, snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, boating, golfing and nightlife.
Additional amenities include: beach towels, private chef, housekeeper, whirl pool spa, alfresco dining, golf nearby, manager, cd player, butler, snorkel equipment....Read more

Los Arcos is a beautiful place with great views and a wonderful atmosphere! But the real magic is in the staff--Alfonso, Chuy, and Berta...We have never had better food or service. Alfonso was always available to take us anywhere we wanted to go, make fabulous drinks, or help out Chuy. He could almost anticipate what we wanted before we did plus he listens really well and was more than dependable:) Chuy is a complete doll--she made so many wonderful dishes all with a smile on her face. Berta worked her tail off, our rooms spotless, and our laundry done if we asked for it. We could not of asked for a better get-a-away from reality! We want to go back!!!

We really enjoyed the villa. Views were amazing. There were some drawbacks however. Lots of bugs, bats and critters. Typical of that type of house but not up my alley. Alfonso was awesome with the adventures. He took the kids everywhere, But he was just ok with keeping things flowing at the house. We all pitched in for clean-up in the morning. Table still dirty with table cloth and dirty glasses. Lounge chairs with wet towels, nothing straightened. Everyone sort of disappeared after breakfast until 2:30 or 3. We often made our own margaritas and I did my own laundry. Maria was amazing. Best food and always a smile. We had a great time, I'm just pointing out some things that could be improved. Also, I had asked in advance about the sun on the deck and they assured me it would be there from 10am until around 2 or 3. The only place that got any sun was the hammock area which has a cover (I would remove that) and the pool. So I guess I would rather have someone be honest about it.

After dealing with a few other places on the phone and not feeling the attention and care I was willing to pay for. I called Luxury retreats, I was greeted by a polite and intelligent young man named Matthew, and from there it was smooth sailing. within minutes, things were taken care of, responded to, and in general, relieved all my tension about booking. - Ralph W., California, USA
"Absolutely amazing experience that exceeded our expectations!"

Villa Los Arcos was so beautiful, the views stunning, and house staff (Alfonso, Chuey and Berta) made our stay absolutely perfect. I honestly cannot say anything bad about our stay other than it was way too short! - Jenny R., Minnesota, USA
