great vacation location

The location was great, the beach was close and nice. It was a bit noisy as they are just finishing the remodeling and updating of the hotel outside. The staff was attentive and helpful. all in all, it was a great vacation spot and one I would definitely do again.

Unbeatable location for the price

Excellent location. Helpful and friendly staff. Two small problems - hospitality room provided showers but no towels and harrassment by time share agents before we even checked in!

Some Good - Some Bad

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.

Can't wait to go back!

The Villa Del Palmar in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico was definatly a great place to go. I would reccomend friends to stay here. The room was perfect for a couple and the grounds were nice. The pool was definatly the place to be during the day there. They had activities at the pool such as games, dancing, and best of all tequilla volleyball. Definatly a family atmosphere there though, lots of kids enjoying the pool and its waterslide along with waterfall. If your looking for something more intimate I wouldn't recommend this place just because it seems to be a more family orientated and retired person get away. But it was still nice! The beach was just steps away with vendors and watersports. And the drinks were good. It also had the all inclusive option which we did not take, it worked out well with us, but seeing the price [...]had for it and the hotels (which was doubled) definatly book that sort of thing online!

Great for a first trip

Great location as a starting point for your travel. The airport transport fee offered with this trip was a RIPOFF. A local transportation will cost you $6.40 for a car load each way.

family friendly

The Villa Del Palmar was a nice hotel. However due to the timeshare aspect of the hotel I would not recommend it to anyone. The location is excellent and the hotel staff is nice if somewhat slow in responding to requests. So if you don't mind being hounded by timeshare sales people you might like it.

We took the public bus into the old town and there were lots of shops and dining choices. The bus stops are right across the street from the hotel and only cost 5 pesos or $.50 US.
