We were actually supposed to be next door at the sister property, the Flamingo, with my brothers family, but when we opted for all inclusive when reserving online somehow we ended up with reservations here where there are also time share units. We didn't complain- the resort was incredible. We stayed for 5 days (tue-sat) and only left for excursions...

We have been coming to Villa la Estancia for years - this was our last. The staff now ceaselessly bother you about buying a condo and, although we were staying as guests of a condo owner, we were rudely removed from seats in the "owners section" (which was entirely empty, and we had been told we could use). We were...

This was the second year we spent at Villa La Estancia and upgraded after a great visit last year to the all-inclusive. Last year we went with one other family.

It's very similar to the neighbor hotel villa palmar flamingo. The rooms are the same just the furniture and decoration is a little bit more exclusive. The breakfast is good but the service is slow. You must bring patience with you. The pool is nice and the bar is right in the pool. We had problems to get a sun-umbrella....

What do you say about a place that feels more like returning to the home of some old friends versus a condo/hotel? As the airport taxi pulls up to the front door, return guests are greeted with "Welcome Home" and that is exactly how they make you feel. While I have written reviews for this place previously, the level of...
