Even with all those choices, many guests opt to sunbathe at the pool, which features a curious conversation piece: an enormous water slide shaped like a whale.

Fun in the Sun - Beware the sharks

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-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

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!

Nice resort - Very reasonable

We've stayed there many times and have always had a great time. The staff are friendly and helpful. Not too pushy for the resort time share tours or discount cards.

Great resturants, at low prices in the Old Town/Romantic Zone. Just go during the day and wonder around, the bus will only cost you 6.5 peso's.

My Vacation

The stay was enjoyable. The staff was helpful and courteous. The beds were a little hard. The resort internet was a rip-off at $14 US for 90 minutes. The morning and early afternoon attendant was glued to his chair and not very helpful. I found the Internet Cafe in the mall at Soriano"s very good with a cost of 200 pesos per hour. I did not like having $3.50 US added to my bill for tips . I found out that it could be removed at check out by request. I did tip where I thought it was deserved. I found the food good but enjoyed going Downtown or to the Marina for dinner. Bus service was good and inexpensive. I did not enjoy getting up before 5 AM to reserve a palapa. Pueblo Bonito in Mazatlan had a much better system.

we heart this place

This is my boyfriend and my 2nd time staying at the Villa del Palmar and we still would stay there again! It's nothing fancy but it is nice. We don't like all inclusive and the studio rooms have a nice and tiny kitchen with utensils including pots pans, cutting boards and sharper knives. Overall I would say this place is great for the simple traveler who enjoys downtown Vallarta or the Marina Vallarta-both are close.

puerto vallarta

generally quiet, though a lot of day time pool activities made for a lot of noise. there is a smaller pool with a quiet area and the beach area for people that don't want to join the group activities. close enough to downtown, hop on a bus and less than 10 minutes you are in old town. the view from the room wasn't spectacular, could barely see the beach, but really didn't spend much time there. clean, nice kitchen, grocery store a block away. would go back! just beware of the time share sales. be firm and say NO! if you take them up for the offer of a free tour, boat ride, cash incentive, be aware that you will be giving up pretty much a full day for high pressure sales.

Great Location

I did not like the check in process. They pretty much try to force you to go on a time share presentation. I am on vacation and am not interested in a time share.
