“The best of the best!!!!”
Reviewed 22 January 2012

We found this place at www.vallartabedandbreakfast.com and had the best vacation ever. Ted and Brischa are really awsome people!! And of course Natalie, super sweet "nanny" to the dogs. They pick you up at the airport and from there on they will take such good care of you! We got to see places, meet people and eat local food that we never would have found if it wasn't for these totally fantastic host's (and they are funny too). They know everything there is to see and do in Puerto Vallarta. Their B&B is gorgeous, very nice and clean rooms, breakfast is served in the morning and they have a great pool. We are already planning another trip to Hacienda Las Animas and cant wait to get there. Thank you so very, very much!!!

Ted and Brischa !!!!!!!! and Nat . Thanks for 8 glorious fantastic days you are all too much .The hardest part of leaving Las Animas was the fact we felt like we were home and didn't want to leave. Ted and Brischa are awesome as hosts, they asked every day if there was something or anything we needed .what was also nice was that if we were thinking of things to do you would take the time to talk and explain to us what to expect . Thank you Ted and Brischa !!!!!! for a great 8 days we will be back for sure!! Love you guys !! Otto and Sheila

Room Tip: The room with the view of the bay but they're all good a room is only as good as the hosts are...

We just spent 2 days at Hacienda Las Animas. Ted picked us up at the airport which is a great perk, especially after our flight had some delays. And the pickup was free- a very good price. As other guests have said, Ted and Brischa make you feel at home. The view form our room and from the pool is panoramic. A large breakfast is included and was very good. Ted and Brischa have numerous pets, Many of them are rescue animals. 3 dogs, a huge cage of mourning doves and I am not sure about how many cats. They are very knowledgeable about the area.This is in a "real" Mexican neighborhood so it may be noisy for some. We visited during the neighborhood church's patron saint celebrations so we got a 5:50 wakeup call form the rockets they use instead of churchbells. Can you say, "Incoming!"? We had stayed at Casa Dixie which is in the same area at the same time so we were ready for it.Our nightstand had earplugs but I didn't need them. Brischa designed the Hacienda and the detail work is impressive. It is an all adult B&B. We will be back.

We have stayed all over Vallarta and the customer service has always been a little lacking, until we found Hacienda las animas. From the moment we arrived, Ted and Brischa made us feel like we were welcome friends. No detail was overlooked for our stay, and we enjoyed every minute of our visit. I felt so comfortable there, (and safe) that I am heading back in a few days with a girl friend. We love PV and have been visiting the area for a long time, never before have I felt like I could possibly visit alone, until now. This is my home away from home, and I will keep coming back as long as they will have me!
I almost hate to share it with the world, (since there are only 3 guest rooms) but it is such a cozy, beautiful property, I wanted to make sure they get the recognition they deserve. The rooms and pool area are kept clean, the beds are comfortable (a BIG deal in Mexico), the view is breath taking, and the hosts are amazing. My husband loved to listen to the doves, and Ted squeezes the best orange juice I have ever tasted. We loved the fact that it was in a real colonia and not in a tourist area, it is such a wonderful gift to get to experience "real" Mexico. I Can't wait to get my bags packed and get back to the hammock over the pool!

Staying at Hacienda Las Animas is like going home only your home is warmer, filled with friendly people and has a pool. Everything from Ted picking us up at the airport to being in a real Mexican neighborhood, to the stunning views at breakfast made this a memorable trip. Ted & Brischa are generous and knowledgeable hosts who will make your stay what you want. They were there to help when we were trying our hand at ordering cabs via phone in Spanish, looking for a great restaurant and sharing their Christmas Eve traditions with us.

The rooms are perfect for the traveler that would like style but not be trapped in the tourist areas. The infinity pool overlooking the valley is a thing of beauty. There are plenty of spaces to hide away and relax.

A perfect way to experience Vallarta
