Our vacation was amazing, we all had a fabulous time. The Casa Salinas 2 property is so beautiful, with a view that is just unbelievable. We all were very comfortable and well taken care of. I can not say enough about Miguel, Abi and Letti. Abi is such and great cook and Miguel works very hard to take care of all our needs. Letti does her job invisibly, which is just fabulous. Everyone was very comfortable in their rooms and we all so enjoyed the pool and the beach. Wow what a great beach! We snorkeled everyday and followed that up with a fabulous pina colada or margarita! It was the vacation of a life time and I so hope we can return. I miss Abi’s food already and am hoping the view stays in my mind’s eye for much time to come. I will be recommending Casa Salinas to friends.
Many thanks for an amazing 55th birthday celebration! My entire family enjoyed each and every minute, from the margaritas that greeted us upon our arrival to the final night, culminating in my birthday party. We danced to the three piece band, dined on expertly prepared filet and lobster, and were delighted by the surprise fireworks after the sun went down. Your staff tended to all of our needs with such care, and always with a smile. The chef was outstanding, we especially loved waking up to her fresh squeezed orange juice, though my personal favorite was her afternoon presentation of salsa, guacamole and homemade tortilla chips. Every evening was a culinary delight! Juan did such a wonderful job arranging activities for us; we all loved the snorkeling, deep sea fishing, and zip-lining. But my favorite was the massages that all of the ladies enjoyed at the villa! My family has a new saying, “Everything is better at Casa Salinas!” You have given my family and me a treasured memory. Thank you for a week of unsurpassed pampering! It was a week we will never forget!
I wanted to extend a very sincere THANK YOU to you and to the entire team at Casa Salinas Uno J We were blown away by everything from the arrival experience, to the property grounds and bedrooms, and of course by the amazing service provided by Juan, Miguel and team. They were incredibly helpful in every way, from the restaurant recommendations, providing ideas of things to do in town, organizing our fishing trip and even bringing in masseuses for spa treatments poolside. Not to mention, the food preparation was AMAZING! We were very spoiled and coming back to reality was difficult to say the least! I don’t think we could have asked for a better vacation and we are so appreciative and grateful. We will definitely refer to friends and family when asked for a recommendation of where to stay in Puerto Vallarta.
Thank you so much for the amazing trip. Casa Salinas is an exquisite home with excellent service and amazing views. We were stunned by the location and impressed by the service. The setup of Casa Salinas1 is perfect and allowed our group to bond and spend so much quality time together. It was truly a relaxing vacation beyond what pictures and words can describe. Thank you so much! David.
It was absolutely fabulous! Above & beyond expectations in every way. Juan is just fantastic! I know my friend,
will be in touch about renting the house sometime this Winter. And we will definitely be back!!!
Thank you Tina.
Thank you, we had a lovely time and the home worked very well for our family. We loved the private beach, the kids were on it all day. Juan and staff were wonderful and very accommodating for my son. We will definitely keep this Villa in mind for future vacations to Puerto Vallarta. Also, thank you so much for your help with my son’s needs, you were the reason I choose this home to stay in.
A quick note of gratitude for an amazing stay at Casa Salinas. Beginning with the amazing directions, follow-up and immediate responses to questions, our stay was extraordinary. The setting, home and attention to detail and comfort were extraordinary. Juan is a great manager and arranged a Fiesta at my request including a Mariachi trio, fireworks and a special dinner of Roast Pork –incredible. Juan was spot-on and most helpful throughout our stay. I must also draw particular attention to the excellence of Miguel, Chef Cheba(sp) and Letty. They went out of their way day and night to make our stay the finest experience. They are Truly a remarkable team and I cannot say enough about committed, caring and how good they are at their jobs. Our sincere thanks to the owners and the incredible team at Casa
Juan was great, very helpful when we needed him without being overbearing. He was informative and responsive to our needs and did a great job coordinating our stay. Yede(?) was absolutely fantastic, she helped in coordinating taxis, the boat ride, etc when we needed help. She was really friendly and spoke very good English, which was helpful. Everyone just adored her. The décor was beautiful, bedding cool and comfortable, everything was very clean especially the kitchen. It was such a treat having our own beach – the perfect place to hop in and enjoy the sea. I cannot say enough about the food prepared for us during our stay. Everything was so tasty and fresh; from the chicken on the first night to the surf-and-turf we enjoyed on our last night. Some of the best Mexican food we’ve ever had! Such a lot of effort was put into preparing and presenting every meal, and they were great at accommodating food allergies as well. With food like this there is no reason to leave the villa at all!
Excellence Re-definedI stayed at CASA SALINAS 1 in Puerto Vallarta for eight days in December. I can’t possibly say enough about the property and the service provided by the on-site staff. Upon arrival we were greeted by a friendly group of houesmen & women. During our stay, they took care of everything from luggage, meals, daily laundry, cleaning rooms, bartending, providing local knowledge about places to see and visit and more. Juan, the head houseman, guided us on a sport fishing tour and a tour of the local islands and beaches. We saw Los arcos, Marietta Islands, Las animas beach and a few more small local beaches. Juan’s extensive native knowledge played a large part in the success of our trip. On our sport fishing trip we caught Grouper, Bonita Fish, Rooster Fish and a few others I can’t remember the name of. We saw approximately 20+ whales from the boat with the closest being less than 100 yards from the boat. Countless dolphins and manta rays were also seen on the trip.The house has a private beach that was different from most in Puerto Vallarta in that it was actually covered with sand. A lot of the beaches there were rock covered so you can’t actually lay out or play in the surf. The beach here is secluded and has a large area where you can swim, snorkel if you’d like and caves near the end of the rocks. My toss up between the best two things about the trip is between the food and the view. First, the view is an absolutely stunning sight out over the Banderas Bay. From the bedrooms you can see everything from Dolphins to rolling surf and perched pelicans sunning on the rocks. Second, the food was amazing. Marta, Juan’s wife provided the majority of the meals with everything requested from duck tacos, to grilled lobster, tortilla soup, chili rellenos and the Grouper (they call them Pargo) that we caught earlier in the day. You can’t get a better meal than the one you just caught a few hours before, cooked with an authentic Mexican seasoning, served hot. They also turned the Bonita fish into a Ceviche which we ate a day later. So awesome if you’re a real foodie.I also had my fair share of mixed drinks at the bar, always available upon request and had my first taste of raicilla, a local tequila made in the mountains of Vallarta.The staff’s ability to communicate in English also helped a lot. My spanish is adequate at best and they’re more than happy to help with that as well.All in all it was the best vacation I’ve ever taken. I would recommend this spot to anyone who is looking to get away and enjoy a seriously relaxing time for as long as possible. This was my first trip here and it will not be my last.
My New Favorite Place in the World
I can’t say enough about CASA SALINAS II. The staff, the location, the comfort, there is too much to say. Everything is taken care of from arrival to departure. The food is better than anything you can find elsewhere (prepared by a private chef), the view is one of those picturesque things that makes you smile when you wake up. The sound of the 80 degree ocean rolling on your private beach. A beautifully kept heated pool…ahhh… I want to go back now. Thanks to the Casa Salinas staff for a perfect week, and for such a reasonable price compared to the other larger villas that we shopped for.
Hope to visit you again soon
