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.

Better than Florida

Enjoyed my stay. Staff very helpful. Immaculate rooms and grounds. Good recreation staff. Nice beach. Food & drinks too expensive unless you had a VIP card. All in all, a good value vacation.

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 Time!

The location is fantastic, yes the taxi fares start to add up fast, but oh man, being right on the beach is sooo worth it! My husband and I always brace ourselves for the onslaught at the airport and right when we arrive at the hotel. Once we talk our way out of the timeshare push, the fun starts! My note about inconsistent service was not about our house keeper, but more about finding staff in our room at various times of the day after our room had already been cleaned. Once we came back to find a woman in our room saying she was giving us more towels at almost 10pm, that was interesting. The hotel needs to be updated a little bit, but I've been staying at Villa del Palmar for the past eight years and put up with the front desk hassels just to stay here. The staff are great and the activites put together each day make things a lot of fun.

The nightlife on the malecon has really changed from relaxed atmosphere to upscale Vegas-type clubs. Not really what we were looking for, but still quite a bit of fun!

Love Mexico

Have stayed at this resort several times. The are remodeling and that slowed getting down getting food at the pool and the quality was not as good. Service is good - whenever we needed assistance, there was always someone to help us out.

Whenever the cruise ships are in port - prices are higher in the flea markets, so try to do local shopping on different days.

Great, love it there.

This is my 3rd visit to Villa Del Palmar, I enjoy the staff especially the bellhops and the housekeeping service. Had a couple of small problems in my room and they were taken care of within miutes. Very nice setting, all the benefits of a five star hotel. Close to shopping and public transportation.

There are just too many good restaurants in PV to go with the all inclusive plans. Glad we have never done that. Fun to try new places.

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.

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!
