We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Ponticello and wish we could have extended our trip beyond the 9 nights. Our group was a party of 10, with 5 couples. The layout of the bedrooms allowed for wonderful gathering spaces to get together as well as a lot of privacy when needed. All of the bedrooms are beautiful and have wonderful and large en suite bathrooms. Many rental homes are not suited to a group of couples, with only one master suite but Villa Ponticello has 5 master suites, 1 up and 4 down, by the pool and hot tub. The living spaces were very open, and the retracting glass windows brought inside and outside together beautifully. The villa is truly walking distance to the private Pedregal beach which we enjoyed walking every night. The highlight of our trip was meeting Karime, the major domo of Villa Ponticello and our chef. We have stayed in Pedregal on other occasions and have enjoyed great service before. But Karime was truly special. This was the first time that we had such attentive, knowledgeable, friendly and effective staff on hand to help us and cook for us every meal we desired. Any questions we had were answered promptly and completely, any minor issue was addressed immediately. We really enjoyed having Karime around! We would definitely stay here again and enjoyed the experience. Overall the finishes and furniture in this villa were very nice and the pictures really didn't do it justice. It is incredibly comfortable and certainly met our high standards. Overall, a great villa that is very well-priced. You get more than what you pay for at Villa Ponticello.
