“BEST ACCOMODATIONS AND STAFF EVER”
Reviewed 7 April 2011 for a stay in March 2011

I've vacationed in Mexico about a dozen times and have stayed at some very exclusive resorts and properties. Villa Gauguin surpassed all of them in terms of cleanliness, safety, customer service, location and scenic beauty.

The staff is wonderful. From the moment we drove up to the home, we were greeted with a friendly and helpful smile. The kitchen was cleaned every day. Climbing into a freshly-washed set of sheets each evening was a luxury our entire group enjoyed. Having an endless supply of filtered water in the kitchen was a welcome bonus that shows how much the staff and owners care about their customers. The pool and grounds around the building were immaculate. The location is great - several snorkeling spots are accessible by walking a few yards along the rocks behind the property.

I couldn't recommend Villa Gauguin or its wonderful staff highly enough. Thank you for a wonderful vacation!

“Perfection!”

Let's start off by saying that Francisco and Gladys were some of the most helpful and lovely people people we met on this trip. The home was in beautiful condition in terms of cleanliness and up keep. Every morning the dishes were done, sheets changed and the entire house was cleaned. They were also very helpful with suggestions and directions.
The location of the villa is perfect, it was off the main road and was extremely quiet. Waking up to the sunrise over the lagoon is a view that is tough to beat. Wearing water shoes, the walk to the lagoon is easy and entertaining while watching the iguanas on the rocks. In the lagoon we saw turtles, rays and numerous fish.
The home was stocked with purified water, an immense welcome fruit basket with numerous other goodies. The pool was in great shape and the grounds were perfectly manicured.
The villa was well worth the price for the value received!!! The Caretaker and Maid, better known as Francisco and Gladys, were always hard working, quiet while working in the morning, and adorned with a smile and a Buenos Dias. They are far from lazy with all the work they do! Francisco and Gladys made for a perfect week in a perfect villa. The villa and the people are the reason vacations in Mexico are perfect!
