Our group of 14 people arrived at Villa Tesoro Del Mar on January 29th and were greeted by Carla who gave us a tour of the Villa which is spectacular. We were then provided with margaritas by Monica, Junior and their son Isaac. Service from then on was unbelievable. The villa itself is beautifully decorated and the bedrooms are so spacious and well appointed as well as the bathrooms. Our expectations were exceeded with the service provided and the food prepared by Monica. They catered to our needs everyday and if we tried to even bring a glass or plate into the kitchen we were gently scolded and told they are there to do that for us. Truly spoiled! We enjoyed breakfast, light snack and dinner everyday we were there. Monica is truly a great chef. They ensured we were never low on water, beer, etc. If they noticed we were low on wine, they would ask how many bottles we needed for that evening and pick it up as well as gin or vodka. Each day with our lunch they would bring out huge jugs of traditional lime or mango margaritas and additional tequila if you so desired, which we did!
Although the weather was cloudy most days we were still in the nicely heated pool everyday. The grounds are spectacular with all of the flowers and trees. It rained one day all day so we played cards and some played pool or ping pong. Everything you needed was there. Some of our group prefer to lounge around, read a book, play cards, etc while others toured Puerto Vallarta and surrounding areas on an almost daily basis. All in all – I would not hesitate to recommend Agave Villas and of course Villa Tesoro Del Mar. What truly made this vacation memorable though was Monica, Junior and Isaac. You really felt like you were in heaven and truly spoiled while there. Our group usually tries a different location each year but I would not hesitate to return and hope to in the near future.

My Father-in-Law took the entire family (16 ppl) for Christmas and what an experience! The house was so very stunning-the pics online don’t do it justice! Beautiful, private location but an easy cab ride to everything. The staff, Monica, Junior and Carlos, were more than amazing. Going above and beyond to provide us with fantastic service and incredible food! Everything was thought of. Agave Villas has got this vacation thing all figured out. Miss it already.

It was fantastic the pictures does not do this property justice. Very spacious for our big group. Absolutely beautiful decor. The staff was very pleasant to deal with. A slight language barrier but thanks to my niece who speaks Spanish we made it work.

Our group stayed at Casa Tesoro for 5 nights for my 40th birthday. I can’t express what a wonderful experience we had given two of our group were not able to make it last minute and I had a passport issue and had to come a day later. It could have been stressful, but Larissa and the staff made it a wonderful experience! Carla was able to arrange our transportation, massages and a wonderful yacht trip for us last minute. She was in constant contact and always available. Monica, Carlos and Junior made sure we always had plenty of delicious food and kept the house clean and the freshly made margaritas, mojitos and pina coladas coming. I wish I knew how to post the pictures of the amazing dinners we had. The presentations were that of a 5 star restaurant. The house is constructed well and beautifully. Everyone enjoyed their rooms. The house is located by one of the nicest beaches I have been to in Puerto Vallarta (we have come about one a year for the last 6 years). I would highly recommend this house to anyone!

The villa was incredible and the property is beautiful! Spacious, clean, and gorgeous throughout. Loved the pools and the enormous covered patio (which came in handy when the thunderstorms would roll in briefly each evening)! Because the villa was designed to be open-air, there’s no central A/C, but rather each room has its own remote-operated A/C unit mounted where the wall meets the ceiling, and these units work nicely. The grounds were lovely. From the patio and pool area, you can see how the villa is perched high up on the side of a low mountain covered in tropical forest (with a view of the bay in the distance). Lots of nice ambient bird sounds and one morning we even saw wild chickens! We spent a lot of time under the tiki hut, where you can really feel immersed in this setting. The staff were very attentive and service left little to desire. Though all staff are worth mentioning with the highest praise, Monica was especially terrific. She seemed in charge of pulling everything together and did it effortlessly. Overall, we got everything we expected with this property. Highly recommended!

We had the pleasure of staying at the beautiful Villa Tesoro Del Mar for our family vacation. The villa was absolutely beautiful and a rock throw to the ocean. We could not have been more pleased with the staff! Maria, a joy to work with, made everything so easy and the chef Monica…an absolute Angel..the meals EVERY one of them to die for. I miss her now!! This was by far the best vacation for our children. Family vacations are priceless memories and I want to thank the gracious staff for their warmth & generosity during our stay.

Impeccable Villa with Amazing Staff
Our group had a perfect vacation at Tesoro del Mar. We are 10 good friends who were having a getaway together, and there could not have been a more ideal setting for it.The house is absurdly nice. The bedrooms were all luxurious, and the living and dining rooms beautiful and spacious. The pools were fantastic, and the palapa was a favorite.
The real star, however, was the house staff. Doria and Monica were impeccable cooks who kept our bellies full with delicious food and the margaritas flowing. Cielo and Carlo kept the house in tip-top shape. And Carla, the concierge, was quick to help us with anything we needed, even helping us track down a great bulk molé stand to take some flavors home with us. All in all, our stay was characterized by the complete and total lack of stress. We very much hope to return!
Phyllis S. December 2018 January 5, 2019
The location was beautiful and fun, the house was lovely and the driver and van transportation to the house was great! Also, Carla, the concierge with the house was amazing. Carla hooked us up with a boat to take us to a secluded beach for lunch and sun bathing. One of the best days there. Also taking the bus into town and experiencing the food and ambiance of town was nice.
Pam N December 2018 December 11, 2018
Tesoro Del Mar is a lavish and spacious villa with beautiful grounds and wonderful staff. We had an amazing stay at the villa. The view and pool area are wonderful. Monica and Doria prepared delicious meals for us along with yummy margaritas! The villa was spacious and clean. Highly recommend.
Dawn B. Oct 2018 October 29, 2018
We had 10 people in our party and all 10 could not believe this spectacular Villa!!!! We had the best vacation and the staff was amazing. Our concierge Carla was always there when we needed to go somewhere or to help us plan our day activities. Monica our chef made the most amazing meals and was always asking if we wanted more Margarita’s……which of course we did!!! The rooms were always clean by Cielo and Carlos was always there when we needed anything that might not have been working properly. What an amazing vacation!!!!!! Would definitely go back!!
Megan J. May 2018 May 30, 2018
The Villa is 1000X better than the photos. Every room is gorgeous, and the grounds and pools are out of a magazine. Monica and Doria are phenomenal cooks, and make the best margarita’s. They were so easy to work with, and their food was better than we could have imagined. Every day before they left, the checked with us to see if we needed anything for the next day, and would have it for us the next morning.
Megan J. May 2018 May 30, 2018
We had a group of 5 couples (10 ppl) stay for a 30th birthday and were impressed from the moment we decided to book, to the moment we left the Villa to head back to the airport. Every aspect of the stay was executed flawlessly. To start, Carla, our concierge, got us a ton of information and then arranged airport transfer, zip lining, golf info, dinner reservations, etc., before we even arrived so we didn’t need to worry about any of that. She (Carla) was waiting for us at the house when we arrived to give us a tour and to see if we had any questions. Monica and Doria were ready with amazing margaritas, which were never ending through the whole time we stayed. They had done the shopping and stocked the house with all of the food/alcohol we had requested. They were incredible!! The food was delicious, and Monica and Doria are the greatest. Anything we needed, they bent over backwards to attend to. Mosquitos got bad, they got citronella for the lanterns. We needed to pump up balls for beach volleyball, Doria showed up with a pump. It was honestly like they could anticipate any and every need we had. Carlos had the pool area cleaned and perfect every morning before we were up, and the bedrooms were cleaned, beds made, and stocked with fresh towels daily. It was like having the luxury of staying at an all-inclusive, without having to share the pool or wait for a table at dinner. I don’t know if I could travel any other way again. One day, we woke up and decided we wanted to go snorkeling. This was not something we had planned ahead with Carla, but we sent her a quick text for a point in the right direction. She called us within 10 minutes with a boat ready for us just down the road. All we had to do was show up, and the boat was already stocked with the beer we had requested. It was amazing. I couldn’t be happier with the trip. This place is stunning, and the staff is phenomenal!!!

Where to start? Well – I got engaged on this trip! The experience ladies and gentlemen will honestly stay with you guys for the rest of your lives regardless of the reason you are drawn to this villa in Puerto Vallarta. The seven spacious bedrooms have you feeling like royalty. The pool table, fitness room, piano and two story in-house waterfall. The video of this villa on YouTube cannot even slightly give this home justice on behalf of just how amazing it is to stay in.
My trip consisted of four nights and five days with six people. Each new day my now fiancée would state at some point during the day, “This is the happiest day of my life.” This really is such an amazing place to stay and it really does have the affect on everyone! Although you feel like a celebrity while living here because of the architecture, picturesque sunsets and grandiose decorations, the staff you guys will really take everything to a whole other level! Monica and Doria served up restaurant quality meals EVERY time we sat down to eat… and for our times at the pool they were quick to bring fresh mango margaritas they made up ALL DAY. At one point we ran out of tequila (short story, it involved a lot of drinking) and Doria was quick to ask if she could run out to the store to pick up another bottle to keep the margs coming!
That isn’t even the extent of the staff’s efforts to make sure we had the absolute best trip possible. Our concierge Carla. I could honestly write a novel to try and explain all the work she went through on our behalf. Because I was planning a proposal in the palapa on the property, her and I email exchanged for two solid months including OVER 80 emails!! Have you heard of anyone doing that just to make sure you had the best experience ever? She would text us when our next event was, send directions to our phones to get back to the villa in Spanish to make sure we never got lost, spent hours of her time haggling with little ol’ ladies on the beach to get authentic Mexican felted hearts we could use for the proposal. And even went back into town to stop by a venue we were at to search for a missing ID Card.
You are not simply staying at a vacation rental here.. you are living your best lives.
Villa Tesoro del Mar – I’ll be back next year!

We enjoyed a wonderful family/friends vacation here. The house was very spacious and clean. Great location, easy to get cabs and a short walk to the beach. The staff was wonderful, prepared great meals and was amazing with the kids. Would definitely recommend this house.
Debbie February 2018 February 21, 2018
We stayed at Tesoro del Mar for 4 nights, 7 women, to celebrate birthday milestones. It was beyond our expectations. The house was beautiful, immaculate and immense. The pools and grounds were gorgeous. The staff was incredible. We always had fantastic food, margaritas, cleanliness and service at our fingertips. The rooms were spacious and open air and had beautiful views. The house is very private and tucked away from the city and beach. We were able to fairly easily take the bus into the city although we took cabs back. The walk down to the beach is fine but I suggest a ride back up! The beach itself was incredible, especially at sunset. But honestly you would never need to leave the rental at all. I would highly recommend staying at Tesoro del Mar for celebrations and vacations for a moderate size group. You won’t be disappointed!

The Villa was even more beautiful than advertised. We were a group of eight adults and three young children and had an absolutely wonderful time during our week long vacation at the Villa Tesoro Del Mar. The Villa was large enough so that everyone had plenty of space and was very nicely decorated. When we were at the Villa we spent most of our days and evenings around the pool and papala areas. The gas fireplace located between the dual level pools was a very nice touch when swimming in the evenings. The staff was absolutely outstanding and provided everything we could have wanted. Doria and Monica are both exceptional cooks and worked so hard to provide excellent meals! They went well beyond what we had hoped for. The Villa was always kept nice and clean and it was very much appreciated. We all had a wonderful vacation although there were a few minor details that could be addressed. Some bedroom and bathroom windows need curtains for privacy and the early morning sunshine. The pools are basically one depth which is nearly 5 feet deep so it is not ideal for kids that can’t swim. Luckily our granddaughters are all like fish and did well. When we arrived there was a broken step near the papala that could be dangerous if you were unaware of it. The walk down the hill to the beach was fine, however, the walk back up was fairly challenging for grandpa! lol These were very minor concerns when considering the whole package. We were very pleased with the accommodations, the staff and Carla the concierge. Carla booked our transportation around the area and offered us help with some of the other tours we did and it was all greatly appreciated! We hope to be back next year!

My partner and I stayed at Tesoro del Mar in November, and the villa truly lived up to its name. While not located directly on the waterfront, it has spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean while being nestled in lush jungle, amid the sounds and sights of tropical birds. Set into the hill within Sierra del Mar’s gated community (with a 24/7 gate attendant), the property thus has the advantage of peace, quiet, and security, as well as dramatic views. Both the house and grounds are large, and we loved the winding staircases, two-level pool, little alcoves, and balconies on all sides, which gave us lots to discover. To top it off, Monica and the rest of the villa staff were absolutely wonderful! We couldn’t get enough of their delicious food, which just kept coming. Truly lovely and kind people! Tesoro’s location is also a perfect balance between city life and relaxation.Take advantage of the stunning Playa Las Gemelas Beach, located a short walk down the hill from the villa. One of most beautiful beaches in the region, its soft white sand, and clear, calm turquoise water makes it feel like a pacific Caribbean! The house is also only 8 min’s drive away from Vallarta’s Romantic Zone and very close to the more southern attractions such as Los Arcos. We would definitely recommend this house, and hope to be back in the future!

Villa Tesoro del Mar is a beautiful property in a wonderful tropical setting. You feel like you are tucked away in your own corner of the jungle, yet you are only a short walk down to (my personal favorite) swimming beach in the area! The staff went above and beyond to make us feel like royalty and it was wonderful to wake up to breakfast every morning. I would highly recommend this property for any types of travelers, either those with kids who want good beach access, or larger groups of friends/couples who want a large and beautiful space to share. Looking forward to our next visit 🙂
Janice July 2017 August 2, 2017
My family and friends enjoyed a wonderful 8 days at this lovely Villa! The staff were awesome! They were very friendly and helpful. Carlos and Cielo kept the villa spotless inside and out. The food prepared by Doria and Monica was so delicious! The pictures and video can’t capture all the fine detail and craftsmanship of this lovely Villa! Maria, the Concierge is wonderful and personable! She came by twice while we were there and was always accessible by email, phone, or WhatsApp. When booking with Agave Villas, Larissa was very helpful and thorough. We spent the majority of our time at the Villa with the occasional trip in to town. The beach is in walking distance to the villa. It is down hill but keep in mind that you have to come up hill on the return. We are already planning a return trip to Villa Tesoro Del Mar!
Eileen May 2017 May 23, 2017
We just got back from an incredible stay at Casa Tesoro del Mar. The villa is even more beautiful than the photos show and is maintained by a wonderful staff. We especially enjoyed the pool, which was cleaned every day. Doria and Monica provided great food and margaritas on request. We are so spoiled after having them cook for us! It was also wonderful to have maid service every day. We also were very pleased with the service provided by the front gate. We requested cabs on several occasions and were impressed with how quickly they arrived. Larissa was very attentive to our requests for help booking excursions and we were able to book a ziplining trip and an evening cruise, which we all enjoyed very much. We all highly recommend this villa if you plan to visit Puerto Vallarta.
Adrianne March 2017 May 2, 2017
We had a group of 15 stay at the villa and we had a spectacular time. The villa was big enough for everyone to escape if they needed to for some quiet time, while the pool, dining room and patio were great hangout spots for the group. We did utilize the chefs Monica and Dorian, who were FABULOUS (the highlight of the villa…seriously)! They were sooo sweet and kept feeding us. The villa is located about 10 minutes from downtown PV. We made a grocery list and menu of what we wanted to eat prior to arrival, gave the chefs money for the groceries and spent little to no money to cover all of our food for 15 people. ALSO!!! MAKE SURE YOU GET SOME OF DORIAN’S EGGS!!! BEST SCRAMBLED EGGS ON THE PLANET!!! Lol Obviously, Dorian and Monica were great. The rest of the staff were as well, we didn’t interact with them as much as we did with the chefs, but still great people all the way around. I’d recommend this villa to ANYONE!
Tisa March 2016 April 10, 2017
Our entire group LOVED the villa. We had an awesome time. The Villa Tesoro Del Mar was perfect for our group. The landscape, pool, and rooms exceeded our expectations and the two chefs (Dorla and Monica) made us fall in love with them along with Carlos. Maria was awesome as well. She helped us to set up massages at the villa which were superb. We will definitely book the villa again in the near future. Once again, thanks for your help.

My family recently stayed in Tesoro del Mar and thoroughly enjoyed it! The villa is tucked into a lush jungle and made for a very quiet & relaxing setting. Our grandkids enjoyed the game room with the ping pong table and pool table. We spent most of our time around the pool because it was so relaxing, but we did walk down to the beach one day. I’m sorry we waited so long to do that! The beach was spectacular…beautiful sandy beach, mellow waves for the kids to play in and we pretty much had the whole place to ourselves. On top of all that, the staff was great and waited on us hand and foot. We will definitely be back!
John and Jeanie S. Vancouver, Canada VRBO Review August 17, 2016
We are very sad to say that we’re back at home after our fabulous stay at Villa Tesoro del Mar. The villa exceeded our expectations in every way!! The house was amazing, spacious and beautifully decorated. The staff were incredible and spoiled us rotten. Our favourite part was the pool and outdoor areas as the villa is surrounded by beautiful landscaping and lush jungle, so felt really private and secluded. We also really loved venturing into Puerto Vallarta…you can just catch the bus right in front of the development which made it really easy. Overall we had one of our best vacations ever!
Ana P. March 2016 Fort Worth, Texas August 17, 2016
This home is perfect for a family or group of friends to get away to an unforgetable vacation. The layout is very spacious, bedrooms have their own individual bathrooms and own AC unit for comfortable temperature control. Also four of the bedrooms have a private balcony and the downstairs bedroom has private access to the garden/pool area. You can spend your days enjoying the pool, reading on the hammock, playing cards under the large covered patio or walking on the beach. It is beautiful!! The staff that take care of the home are very attentive and friendly. The amazing cook, we were blessed to have, made the most delicious meals and kept us going with tasty beverages as well. This property also has an amazing concierge director who can help schedule excursions and activities to keep the group entertained. There are many options to meet varied interest. We were here for our friends 50th birthday celebration and we all had an unforgetable get away. We plan on coming back soon!!
Gaylen P. July 2016 VRBO Review August 17, 2016
Tesoro del Mar is beautifully appointed. Each bedroom has great views, plenty of privacy, comfortable beds and the a/c units worked great. The pool area is where you will spend most of your time because it is so beautiful and relaxing. Gloria took very good care of us, cooking breakfast and dinner each day. She even managed to teach us a little Spanish! Cielo and Carlos take immaculate care of the house and grounds. And Maria! She took care of all of our activity needs-booked the most amazing massages, zip line excursion, dinner reservations, she was amazing!
