We have stayed at this property in the past and it never disappoints. The property is well kept and has a lovely pool and great beach location with plenty of chairs and umbrellas. The staff is professional and responsive. We will definitely return.

Villa Del Palmar

Would recommend Thu, Mar 18, 2010
The hotel was very nice and the staff for the most part were friendly. I did have a very bad experience with the check in supervisor. We had a wedding there and 5 rooms. She actually called me a liar when I told her who was in what rooms. I would think it does not matter as long as there was not to many people in a room. She said it is up to me if you stay or go.That was unacceptable

Money saver

when you get there go through the airport and get a taxi across the bridge not at the airport. It is half the price.

Always dependable

Would recommend Wed, Mar 17, 2010
We really like this place,this being our third visit. We prefer to pay cash or by credit cards for our meals etc, this is not possible here so we tend not to use the eating facilities. They do have a great deli/market for coffee and snacks but the internet service was way too expensive so just walk across to the mall and pay 5 pesos for 10 mins.The only really irritating thing about this hotel is the timeshare people who attack you before you have a chance to get to the check-in counter demanding your resv info, id and credit card. We find this totally offensive as they are always rude and way too agressive and its a very bad way to start your visit.

Shopping hint

Short walk to the mall with full facilities and large supermarket, also great to hop on a bus directly outside the place.Did read on the way home that senior's pay half fare so that is someting we didn't know about.

warm weather getaway

Would not recommend Tue, Mar 16, 2010
very clean ,spa treatment was great & good value, food & drinks too expensive even with 20% discount card for area. cocierge did not give us all the info. we need when booking a golf outing. I have stayed in P.V. 8 times and this was the first time in hotel zone, and probably won't stay in that area again.

Dining

Dining was wonderful in marina area and shopping in old town

Great Value and location!!

Would recommend Mon, Mar 15, 2010
I have stayed at this resort many times in past years and have always had a positive experience for the most part. Lounges around the pools being held for extended periods of time can be frustrating but this seems to happen at most resorts as there seem to be more guests than lounges. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating.

Dining

Make sure and visit Blake's Sports Bar - food is wonderful and the service is great!!!

Puerto Vallarta, Villa Del Palmer Spa&B

Would not recommend Sat, Mar 13, 2010
The location was fine easy to get to and easy to get around First we were not givin the rooms we were booked for, then next day had to get out of the room they gave us,they just overbooked The beach is not big enough for the amount of rooms they have, we had to get up ay 4.am to place towels on chairs to have a place to sit and already half the chairs were taken.the food was fine, very expensive, from people who have been goin for years say,it has doubled this year,example breakfest buffet 20.00 each we love puerto vallarta but we will not stay here again.

Dining

Dining in pto is excellent many fine places to eat my wife and I would never do all inclusive again, once was enough.

Villa Del Palmar Beach Resort & Spa,

Would recommend Thu, Mar 11, 2010
Checked in myself and my parents. Some outer buildings -part of VILLA DEL MAR( a cheaper property), do not have elevators and my parents were placed on the 4th floor. We went back and got them moved to the main building after showing them their knee replacements. VILLA DEL PALMAR is part of the main building with ocean and pool view rooms, and pricier rates. VILLA DEL MAR is a few older building set back from the ocean with a lower room rate. BE CAREFUL YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.... Hotel does not like to enforce it's own noise policy because the people are OWNERS.

Dining

ALL INCLUSIVE does not include certain top rail liquors. We've seen a few guests complaining about it not really being all inclusive.

Fun in the Sun - Beware the sharks

Would recommend Wed, Mar 10, 2010
The hotel itself is spectacular. The maids, bell boys, bar staff, are all fabulous. The time share sharks ruin the complete effect. This was our second trip and we finally agreed to go on the time share. We were really interested to get the info, but told them up front we were NOT going to buy right now. We never got the things they promised for the tour and the concierge's "helpfullness" disappeared after our tour when we said no. But for that one little thing, it was a perfect vacation.

Money saver

Take the bus! It's 6.50 pesos (thats about 65 cents us), and you can go anywhere you want to. The drivers are helpful even if the ride is not up to US standards. They are bumpy, but it's an experience! We are still laughing about the trips!

Some Good - Some Bad

Would recommend Fri, Mar 5, 2010
We have stayed at this hotel several times before and we love the location, the large rooms with kitchens, cleanliness and the friendly staff. They do try and push time shares, however. Sometimes you have to be pushy to get a good room location - they usually try and put you in the less desirable rooms first but generally will move you upon your request. We were suppose to get a $150 hotel credit during our stay which was not honored and there was no one available to help us - we had written documentation but [...] supposedly had a note that it was not available. Not sure whose fault that was. The restraurants and bars are very expensive within the hotel if you are not all inclusive. But the location is great to get to downtown by either cab or bus where there are many eating establishments to choose from. Plus, you can do your own cooking if you prefer because of the kitchens in the rooms.

Shopping hint

There is a shopping mall just a short walk from the hotel that contains a large grocery store as well as shops and small dining cafes.

Good & Bad

Would recommend Tue, Mar 2, 2010
Please be aware that you will collared right when you get off the plane by people you assume work for the hotel shuttle but really are trying to sell you a time share. While the Villa Del Palmar Resort is very nice there are multiple buildings in the complex. We were put in the building on a busy, noisy street. The room was very big will a second interior door that muted the street noise. Unfortunately the balcony faced the grass roof of an outdoor party area and a bank of air conditioning units next to it. All in all a lot of noise. We did like the kitchenette in our room, we shopped at a Mexican supermarket half a block away and ate one or two meals a day at home. Make sure you don't get a room in building C! The rest of the complex is very nice.

Shopping hint

Soriana grocery store is just down the block. Great bakery inside.
