In all of our travels to Mexico I don't think we've ever
felt more welcomed or more at home as when we stayed in Barry and Barbara's
Junior Suite at Villa Santa Barbara. Upon our arrival, after mentioning we'd be
happy with a coffee pot and some coffee for our room, we were presented with a
fully cooked, freshly prepared, complete, out-of-this-world delicious barbecued
chicken dinner; still warm, prepared by Dora who is an excellent cook and is the
caretaker's wife. How many places would do that for their guests? Completely
free. After a long flight we were exhausted and so hungry and that dinner could
not have tasted better. To top that off I mentioned to Barb that it was my
husband's birthday and asked where I might buy a birthday cake to surprise him
with. The next thing I knew she had ordered the cake from a local caterer,
bought balloons and streamers, and was on her way to the store to buy groceries
for a special dinner she and Barry helped us to prepare and enjoy with the other
guests staying at the villa. This, I think, tells the story of how Barb and
Barry go out of their way to accommodate their guests. Their staff is
wonderful!. Everything is very clean and well maintained, beautifully decorated,
and is in a very quiet and peaceful setting. Barra de Navidad is a lovely,
quaint little town. One in which I have never felt safer. My husband and I are
already planning on going back next year and will probably be staying at Villa
Santa Barbara again only this time we may have family with us and stay in the
We found Villa Santa Barbara to be a luxurious Mexican Oasis
on a quaint canal waterfront setting. My husband and I came
to Barra for a restful fun getaway & we found it here! Barb & Barry
are fun, easy going gracious hosts. Every suite is private.
One of the best features is the crystal clean pool & patio area.
We can envision coming here again & sharing this great place
with our family.
Thanks Barb &

"We were the first guests to stay in the Penthouse suite -
it was perfect! There was lots of room inside and out. Barry &
Barb were fabulous hosts - anything we needed, they found it for
us. We had a "fiesta" with them and the other guests one night...
lots of fun!
Beautiful scenery, an easy walk to Barra, a lovely
pool, great weather and accommodation not to mention the awesome
company... what more could we ask?
Thanks, Barb & Barry - we'll
see you in Gibson's in June."

"We just stayed at Villa Santa Barbra for
1 week Nov. 26/08 to Dec.4/08. All we can say is it was amazing,
Barb and Barry made us feel like family, the pictures are amazing
but when you get there it is even more beautiful, can't wait to
go back -- the best spot yet with all our world travels. Barb and
Barry, thanks for a great time!
If you are going to Barra De Navadad, stay with Barry and Barb,
the most amazing place."
