I just returned and had a wonderful time at this hidden gem. Wonderful Authentic Mexican villa tucked away in the rainforest yet walking distance to the beach. Wonderful views, loved hearing the river right under my window each night. A great place to relax by the pool in peace before exploring old town Puerto Vallarta. Very clean with modern amenities...

This was my fourth visit to Hacienda Elena. We didn't go last year and regretted it. I was so glad to find the same professional staff there doing a fine job and the place was a beautiful as I remembered it. The staff is still courteous, friendly and most of all helpful. The location is just far enough away from... More

I got more or less randomly to Hacienda Elena and was stunned: Very charming building, excellent furnishings, great facilities, spacious rooms with luxurious bathrooms, best service, heated swimming pools, gorgeous view about the bay of Puerto Vallarta, jungle behind the house, very nice beach, absolutely quiet, amiable staff.   In one word: a Paradise! Thank you for the stay in... More

I stayed in Hacienda Elena in December. It was so beautiful! I love the heated pool that looked out at the rainforest. There is a lot of neat art and rustic furniture in the house. It takes you away to another place and time! It is walking distance to two very quiet and beautiful beaches, with a short drive down... More

This past January my family and I returned to beautiful Puerto Vallarta for our second trip. We had such a wonderful time the year before we just didn't feel like we got to do everything we wanted. We had no reservations about staying back at the Hacienda Elena again. We were not disappointed and the stay was top notch! We... More

I stayed in Hacienda Elana with family and friends in January. We couldn't have asked for more. The service was incredible. Breakfast was served in the morning and in the afternoon before dinner Juan Carlos made snacks and marguaritas for us on the patio. The location is perfect. You can see the ocean from your bedroom window and the jungle... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Hacienda Elena in January 2011 for several nights. Its different in that its a house where guests can interact more than at your typical hotel. However, I was expecting much more based upon the other reviews on this site. Its quite a bit off from the beach and not what I would call an... More

As can be seen by the 100% positive responses from our other guests, we work hard to provide everyone with a great experience and usually are successful. Of course everyone is entitled to thier personal opinion, but it is worth noting these guests stated the property is "not close to... More

I don't know where to start on our review of Hacienda Elena, I guess first with its architectural beauty which is plentiful, it is located in the foothills and overlooks the ocean and has a spectacular view of the coastline of PV.

The pictures don't do justice to the beauty of this hacienda. This was our first visit and certainly not our last. It's a slice of paradise, secluded in the jungle yet not far from "el centro" and Mismaloya beach. Juan Carlos and Lupita are great, they are very accomodating, always ready to help and cook! They made us some great... More
