The property is beautiful with lush gardens, great pools and plunge pools everywhere .
However, there seemed to be very few people and it is quiet, If you are looking for entertainment or excitement it is not for you. Wonderful to be able to be able to just sit around the pool where ever you want and not have to fight for lounger in the sun or shade always one available. Lots of various to just sit and read and relax and unwind enjoying the gardens.We stayed in a villa and a one bedroom unit to get a feel for the place, both were large and newly renovated with very comfortable furniture. The meals are delicious and the waiters very helpful, Gustav was a wonderful source of information and very attentative to our needs. Everything closes down by 8 or 9 so make sure you have food or beverages in your unit in case you would like something later as unless you take a taxi into town you are out of luck. There is a 7-11 type of store but it is a bit of a walk. You can take a taxi or bus into town also for groceries at Walmart of the Mrga grocery store daily. Tours can also be arranged thru the conceraige just like other resorts.

Vallarta Gardens is absolutely gorgeous, very quiet, and the staff is quite wonderful. I would stay there again in a heartbeat IF they did not have such a pushy time share scam. We felt like we were held hostage, and they trick you in to yet another travel scheme that you have to attend before they release you to enjoy your vacation.

Vallarta Gardens is a very beautiful, quiet timeshare resort. All the staff were very friendly, helpful and professional. A special shoutout to the waiters, Caesar, Pascal and the head evening waiter (can’t remember his name), as well as the head bartender Luis and bartender Martha. The food was absolutely delicious, great presentation. The only thing my husband and I didn’t like was that there were no activities to do at the resort and everything, including the bar closed up by 9:00pm.

Villa Jasmin, 55 Vallarta Gardens. Lovely villa in excellent location.
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Our family of 10 enjoyed a wonderful 2 weeks at this villa. It was ideally appointed with its 5 bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms. The facilities at the resort were excellent, especially the pools and the close proximity of the beach. The daily maid service was much appreciated and minor issues we encountered with the villa were dealt with immediately by the concierge. Our only disappointment was that on arrival we were informed that the Jacuzzi was broken beyond repair. I would have liked to have been informed prior to arrival as we were looking forward to using it. Apart from this we had no complaints.

If you are looking for a peaceful experience this is the location for you. The property is quite, grounds meticulous, and staff accommodating. Our villa was even more beautiful then I expected it to be. Pool directly out the door, which was wonderful as we had a 2 year old and she needed her afternoon nap and we could still be at the pool with the older children while she took one. From the upper floors you had an ocean view not ground level. Ocean a very short walk. The property is gated so you felt very safe. We brought life jackets for all the children and was glad we did as I didn't see any even though we were under the impression there were ones on the grounds (likely if so there would have been a charge to use them.) Also we needed a crib, we were charged $8 a day. There is a bus system right outside the gate that gets you any where you need to go in a few minutes. The buses run constantly. Also the security at the gate will call you a taxi if not the adventurous sort as the condition of the buses varied a lot but I loved that! The Mega store is a 10 minute bus ride maybe 15 and everything you could need is there (the exception for us was dishwasher soap which apparently they sold out of at the holidays). We were able to finally get dishwasher soap from the villa connoisseur however our dishwasher did not work well so we ended up hand washing everything anyway. I would totally recommend this property and would give a 5 star had there not been a mix up with our reservation vacation when we first showed up giving us all a bit of a heart attack initially and the fact that our dryer and washer was on the brink and this was one of the reasons I was so pleased with this property as we planned to only take carry on luggage and we had a family of 7 so planned to do several loads of laundry and we never were able to do this. In fact the last day I spent several hours moving my laundry from one washer to the next as several washers on the property were down I would have rather spent my last several hours lounging at the pool rather than panicking that I was going to be loading my suitcase with soaking wet clothes. Restaurant on the property OK however we found many wonder restaurants in Bucerias. We walked the beach several times to the town of La Cruz, I recommend that. They have a fresh fish market daily and on Sundays a farms market.
