Second time at Villa

Would recommend Thu, Sep 19, 2013
I have stayed at this quaint, small Mexican hotel just North of Puerto Vallarta twice and love it. It is small, has a great beach with plenty of palapas, and lots of room to walk. It is next to the marina, which is lovely and interesting and provides an area for more walking. There is a plaza nearby, an OXXO, Fenix Massage and several restaurants, as well as condos and apts. There is a bus stop to town less than a block away where one can ride to Wal-Mart, hop on an El Centro bus and be in downtown PV...for under $2. Villa has a nice pool area, provides towels for pool/beach use and free bottled water in the rooms. Both times I have been, I paid for the least expensive room and was upgraded upon my arrival. The rooms are spotless, and with a partial and/or oceanview, the windows open to enjoy the sea breeze. There is a tiny refrig in all rooms and a microwave in some. I took the AI option because it is very inexpensive and I could still eat out if I wanted. Most of the food is typical Mexican fare, which I love. Beans, tortillas, yogurt, peppers/onions, oatmeal, hot chocolate, tea, coffee, fresh fruit and a pancake/omelet station in the morning. All very good. I did not eat lunch, but just had a hamburger , taco or salad, etc. from the beach grill. Dinner was usually chicken and/ or pork with different sauces, salads and a dessert offering. If you stay for 3 nights, then you will have a "special dinner" (4 course dinner) cooked in the kitchen instead of buffet. Depending on the number of people at the hotel the special dinner is set up with tablecloths, wine, etc. in the daytime grill area or on the beach just around sunset. Good food and gorgeous sunset! The bartenders were not stingy with the alcohol...once they determined what you liked..."con mucho tequila, por favor," and were adept at making most any drink you might want. I do not care for the dining room because it is not Colonial Mexican décor...it is newer and has plastic chairs/tables and reminds me of a cafeteria. I usually ate my breakfast and/or dinner at an outside table. In fact after I did it twice, the waiters opened the door for me, brought me my drinks and checked on me often while I dined outside. Excellent service. The entire staff is kind, polite, friendly and caring at Villa Varadero...in fact the staff may be their strongest point. HOWEVER, please don't go to Villa expecting a Marriott, a RIU, a Mayan or any other huge, "Disneyland" hotel. It is not that, nor would I trade it for one of those. Though they do have kayaks and bicycles for use, TV's in the rooms, and gameboards for the lobby area, the major attraction is the beach. If you need to constantly be entertained by an outside source, or constantly be in the company of Americans/Canadians then this is most likely not the hotel for you. If you delight in finding a small, quaint, well-located , Mexican oriented hotel on a beautiful beach for a wonderful price. This is it. I will return.

Time saver

Ask abut the bus into Puerto Vallarta.., it is a short, inexpensive trip to downtown/Centro.

Perfect hotel for a quiet family vacation

Would recommend Fri, Mar 30, 2012
This hotel is perfect for those looking for a true mexican experience, away from all the American tourists and the big all-inclusive hotels. We had breakfast included with our package, it was incredible! A buffet with made-to-order omelets, pancakes, sweet bread, juices, beans, potatoes and much more. The beach is clean, safe and quiet. The hotel has boogie boards that the kids loved, they played in the ocean for hours! They provide beach towels, and there are always chairs available on the beach. Nuevo Vallarta is a small town, safe to walk around and with some nice places to visit. You can easily take a taxi to Puerto Vallarta, where you'll find vendors, markets and many more people. There are taxis across the street from the hotel, they are safe and charge fair prices. They'll take you anywhere you want to go and also give you very good recommendations. Our favorite places were the ones the locals recommended. For fish and seafood we suggest "El Titis" ($6.00 taxi ride, 10 minutes from the hotel). One block from the hotel is "Tacos el muelle", on the marina, a great taco place. The staff at the hotel went out of their way to make our vacation wonderful, they were exceptional.

Dining

"Tacos el muelle" on the marina, close to the hotel. The owner cooks the meat on the grill right there, and tacos are only $1 each. Their specialty is "molcajete". Very tasty tacos and friendly servers.

Good location - food needs improvement

Would not recommend Sat, Mar 24, 2012
The location can't get better - right off of the beach. There is only one restaurant, not a whole lot of selection, however, when you stay more than 3 nights, you get a special dinner on the beach, which was great. For what you pay, it is a great deal, however, the food could be better.

Could Have Been Better

Would recommend Tue, Mar 13, 2012
The only complaint I have is the food. Mind you I didn't starve but the food, if your not Mexican, was a small choice. Beans at every meal is not my idea of breakfast. Some night there wasn't anything that was appealing to me. Other than the food the location was great, rooms very clean,and staff wonderful.

Dining

there are 4 or 5 resturants right in the area you can walk to.
