our return to P.V.

The meet and greet person's roll is to get you to their new property, our room had condensation issues so the floors were soaking wet and then we had to wait for someone to recalibrate the lockbox so our first day was spent fixing these issues. The condensation was so bad we had to ask for another room. But that said the property is beautiful, older crowd that bring their families so if you are young, hip and cool this may not be place for you, just saying. We personally liked it because we are not young, hip and cool. Things are geared toward "members" like free internet, discount tours, etc. All of store front properties are owned by hotel like Laundromat, mini store. 5 dollars to wash or dry but lady there will take care of it for a tip. Try going to Ocean Grill, it's a little adventure

Villa del Palmar in Puerto Vallarta

This hotel was great. On first floor before hotel entrance, there is deli /gift shop along with 8 or so computer terminals available to use at a reasonable rate. Bus for 6 pesos takes you into downtown where main boardwalk is blocked from cars so nice to walk around and see the ocean. Plenty of restaurants.

Love this hotel, but it's certainly not perfect

I really enjoy staying here, it was my 3rd time now. The hotel is a great 3-star hotel, meaning you're not getting a super comfy bed or amazing service but it is a great hotel otherwise and exactly what I'm looking for on a Mexican vacation. I will stay again but only at the right price.

Great beach location

The room was fantastic and the special included a "book 3 days , pay for only 2". There is deli shop in front of hotel that had pastries and coffee and sandwiches. Also 4 or 5 computer terminals to surf internet or view e-mail. Very nice hotel. Bus for 5 pesos takes you downtown where Malecon is now car free so you can walk at leisure.

Great trip - 4th time!

The hotel is slightly older than some but in a great location and very well kept. It is walking distance to a local grocery store/shopping mall and 1/2 way between the airport and downtown. The grounds are very well maintained and clean. The staff is extremely nice and willing to help. They have a nice mix of older and younger people with plenty of activities for all ages. I would avoid the promotional tours (it takes longer than they say) and my only complaint is that check in is slower than it should be. Otherwise, if you like beach, sun, fun activities and good value - this is the place!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Go to the Soriano grocery store about a block away. It is a 'locals' grocery store so their grocery prices are very good and, for those who prefer not doing all inclusive, you can purchase a weeks worth of breakfast and lunch for under $60. They sell booze there too and the units at Villa del Palmar all have a kitchen of some sort so you can enjoy meals in your room or on your balcony and cut your costs on drinks.

Not as advertised

First of all, this hotel was not all-inclusive as advertised. I was sure I had booked it as such, but when we arrived, we found that was not the case. The restaurants were also nothing like they were listed on the website. The bar that is called Los Equipales Sports Bar on the website, was called La Patron and had a full menu. The food was very good. La Cucina might have been there, but we never found it. Instead there was a small place with a breakfast buffet that left much to be desired and the dinner fare was not much better. Maybe in a way, it was better not to be booked all-inclusive. I think they had WiFi, but I didn't need that and I suspect you had to pay extra for it like the internet cafe which only had 3 working computers. That said, the room was nice with comfortable beds and great pillows. Loved the balcony overlooking the swimming pools, and how quiet it was for sleeping at night. As far as location - it was not a bad area as there were places to eat within walking distance. Would I go to Puerto Vallarta again? Yes. Would I stay at this hotel again? Only if they have a more accurate description of their amenities.
