It is the network and the Philippine television's first primetime soap opera since Anna Liza.[5][6] The series once pitted against ABS-CBN's evening news program, TV Patrol. After several weeks of airing, Villa Quintana was finally surpassed TV Patrol in the ratings and due to continuous success of the series and RPN's broadcast of the hit Mexican telenovela, Marimar, ABS-CBN forced to move its top-rating afternoon drama, Mara Clara to primetime.[3][4][7] The series aired from November 6, 1995[8][1] until January 24, 1997.[2]On January 27, Villa Quintana was occupied by the Mexican telenovela Pobre Niña Rica (produced by Televisa) until March 14 then two months later, it moved to morning slot to make way for Ikaw Na Sana (top-billed by Bobby Andrews and Angelu de Leon) premiering March 17.

Due to success, Viva Films had plans to bring Villa Quintana into the big screen but was later cancelled. However, Cruz and de Leon later top-billed several movies together after the series.[6]

A 2013 remake version starring Janine Gutierrez and Elmo Magalona was aired from November 4, 2013 to June 6, 2014.[1][2][4][5][8]
