All 463 suites brim with regional style -- right down to the folksy pottery. Bright fabrics and cozy furniture further the relaxed appeal. When the day is done, guests sit on furnished balconies to admire the pool and bay views. All rooms boast digital TV, a dining table, central air-conditioning, ceramic-tile floors and purified water.
Features
An all-day schedule of planned activities ensures that Villa Del Palmar Beach Resort & Spa Puerto Vallarta guests can play from morning until night. On-site diversions run the gamut, from water aerobics, pottery classes and nightly dinner shows to tennis and a fitness center equipped with cardio and weight machines. Guests can also go off-site for ATV excursions and glass-bottom-boat cruises, among many other tour options.

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.

Whether the occasion calls for outdoor dining or a more upscale meal, Villa Del Palmar Beach Resort & Spa, Puerto Vallarta tempts with a global menu of dishes and ambiance-filled restaurants. Guests start at La Cucina, where the full breakfast buffet is not to be outdone by the gorgeous patio overlooking Banderas Bay. Jalisco, open seasonally, dishes up regional family-style Mexican cuisine in an Old World setting. Diners can also request to be seated in the outdoor palapa (an open-sided hut with a thatched roof). Los Equipales Sports Bar invites guests to enjoy tapas and sports by the pool.

Great Family Relaxation

This is the place my family and our friends go every year. The location is perfect! It's a resort right on the beach only minutes away from the airport as well as downtown Puerto Vallarta. It seems standard practice for this hotel to try to put you at the rooms that are right on the road. I was aware of this practice from staying here so many times, and yet they still claim they had nothing available until the next day even though I had made a specific request a week prior for the area in which I wanted to be located. The first room was horrendously noisy and I was surprised by how little the front desk staff and supervisor care for the comfort of their arriving guests. And after a lengthy check in, they insisted on trying to sign us up for their "free breakfast" which is a thinly veiled time-share presentation. What was super about this place was the beach. They do a nice job of keeping it clean, and providing enough chairs and umbrellas for all. The waiters and the bellmen are absolutely wonderful. Always a smile and they really get to know their guests. The rooms are clean but perhaps a little dated. It's not a super-plush resort that you'd find in an area with endless space, but it does have everything you need for a fun vacation. All things considered, it's a good value for the money, but be patient and persistent!

There are so many wonderful places to eat in downtown and Old Town, but Pipi's is consistently a great time, with the BEST margaritas.

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!

We wouldn't go anywhere else!

We stayed at VDP with a group of 19. there were couples, there were singles, there were families with children. ALL of us had a great experience. The staff takes wonderful care of you. They have a very "can do" attitude. The rooms were above expectations. We did have a 2 room suite which was huge! It was great for entertaining our large group. the pools, the beach, the service..all great. The location and transportation was also very good. We drank the water from the tap and in the bar and restaurant with no problems. Go and be prepared for a wonderful vacation.

There are several non-tourist seafood restaurants on the outskirts of down town. Langastino Feliz (happy lobster) and another one about 4 blocks from Feliz.. something like Puescos. Both worth finding! Try the whole broiled Red snapper!
