The Country Home on the Beach in Banderas Bay.


Our family stay was so epic we already booked it for next year. Hacienda Alegre has it all. A great surf wave out front, spectacular view, magical jungle animals, and a sprawling property to play on. We all miss the staff, they are the best in the world. Rosie, Nayum, Roman, and Greta took such good care of us, we did not want to leave. We ate the best meals in Mexico every day, played every ocean and pool sport you can imagine. My husband and I are surfers so it was such a gift to be able to jump in the water right in front of our home. Roman cut down fresh coconuts and made a bon fire for us one night- that was truly special!!! Rosie and Nayum made the kids little special snacks which is such a gift for a parent. All the adults were able to relax and actually take a vacation!!! best vacation villa I have ever stayed in.

The staff was amazing and really made the experience special. The house has great amenities and it’s right on the beach.  

It was a great trip!


We had a wonderful time here. I brought nieces and nephews along and it was a great experience for them. The best part was the food and the taste of local sea food. The chef, the crew and the staff were courteous and professional. 


Fabulous house and grounds. Great staff, friendly and attentive. We had a great time and plan to be back.

Dear Greta, Fermin & Staff,

Thank you for a wonderful vacation. Fermin was a highlight for us. He is an amazing chef and genuine man. We will definitely return. . . . Our stay was a 10 out of 10!

If anything, the description of Hacienda Alegre on its website understates its beauty, serenity and revitalizing power. I recently brought my large family for 8 days for our annual reunion and it was magical for all of us. The staff of Greta (very friendly and efficient manager), Nahum (chef extraordinaire), Rosie (smiling and working hard to keep everything spotless), Pedro(world class bartender) and the other staff members added so much to our collective experience. They treated all of us like special guests. The little ones (ages 1, 3,3,5,8 and 10) loved it; the grownups loved it. The location, perched on a cliff above the beach, set within a tropical oasis that is perfectly maintained, makes Hacienda Alegre a uniquely situated property that incorporates 3 buildings onto its 2 acre site. If you love Mexico and the Pacific, this place will capture your heart.


No words can describe how wonderful the staff was. Nahum and Rosie made this an unforgettable vacation for us.

Thank you from all of us!

The house is wonderful. Very lush, as if it's a part of the jungle itself. The staff was extremely kind and accommodating. I will hold this trip in a special place in my heart.

We had an incredible time at Hacienda Alegre. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted so nicely by Greta. The staff were all so nice. Fermin and his team were great. The food was excellent and everybody was so nice. The house was very well-kept and maintained, and if anyone needed anything, help was offered right away. We had a wonderful time and look forward to returning soon!

The property was by far the best I've ever stayed at in Mexico. Greta and her team were 100% professionals and ensured we had the best possible experience!

It's hard to imagine that there could be anything more amazing than this property, but the staff was absolutely incredible! Our whole group had an amazing time and we hope to come back again soon!

Our great vacation started before we even left the U.S. with Greta on the ready. She is so repsonsive and positive! 

The location and room setup is perfect. The land is sublime, peaceful and restorative. Rosie and Nahum are wonderful, kind people. Rosie is full of joy and Nahum’s food is so delicious! The animals here are magical, just like this vacation! Wonderful!

I wanted to let you know that we have made it home and the trip to the Hacienda was magnificent. Beyond our dreams a vacation of a lifetime. The staff was wonderful, Nahoom was a fabulous chef and the “gem” of your crew is definitely Greta. She made us feel at home and did over and beyond to ensure our stay and logistics were perfect. We cannot wait to book for next year!

Magical environment. It is the perfect grounds for a group ... so much room to spread out for personal space, yet common areas are very spacious and beautiful.

The staff was warm, friendly and accommodating. Loved everything about our time here. Thank you.
