great staff nice installations

I was there for 9 nights. The staying was awesome overall. Kind staff, the food was really good, nice swimming pools and jacuzzis. Beach was good also. The only problem was that it was rainy, nothing the hotel could to to prevent that, but you couldn't get from one building (where my room was) to the main hotel builiding without walking under the rain. They should have an alternative way to protect the guests from rain and giving access to the main building in situations of extreme rain like this, which are not quite unforeseeable. The rain flooded the first floor of the building making it impossible to leave one's room to go to the restaurant for example, for the entire night. There were no problems unrelated to the rain. Staff was great and everything in the room was perfect. Good location close to Soriana to get groceries. I would stay there again but next time I'll check the weather before booking the trip.

Good family Spot

This hotel is located one block from a big chain supermarket which makes it pretty conveniente if you are travelling with kids. If you are spending like we did a week there. You can go get graceries, snacks, drinks, etc. and don{t have to pay taxis. The place is right by the beach which is also very nice. You get out of your room and in 2 minutes you are walking on sand. It also has 2 big pools and 2 jacuzzies. The kids love the water slide in the main pool. They also have a Kids Club that takes care of the kids while you take special time with you significant other.

Anniversay Celebration

The location is perfect & close to the downtown. Very clean & friendly staff, except the lady at the Currency teller (Maria Dolores Rolon Padilla) she was very rude and had a bad attitude. We spoke to the manager & the manager saw the incident. Then the manager told us Padilla did not work for the resort. The next day we see Padilla at the cash register thats in the bar. We were lied too. This is our second time in Puerto Vallarta we had a great time. The people out there are very friendly and kind. The food was great in the Malecon, there is a small place that had the best wings.( Pepe"s wings)Overall it was a great stay.

Great Location

We have stayed at this resort three times and have always enjoyed it. The location is the best part of the resort. The food is good but not exceptional. We do not go inclusive because we like to go into town for dinner, the all you can eat breakfast is worth the price. The barrage of sales tactics when you arrive is annoying and they won't give you the discount card unless you spend a day "touring" their other resort. Check out took 45 minutes and was terrible mismanaged. Not sure we will return again...

excellent hotel

vallarta is very beautiful place, and vista del palmar is a excellent hotel with kitchens in each room, thats helps to make a lot of saving in food. The food at the hotel is okey, but not the best in vallarta. All staff is very helpfully and honest (they tell us all time to take care about pricing in town, like taxis or restaurants) ... all the hotel have excellent instalations! , the only bad thing is the time of we went (semana santa 3/apr to 9/apr) the hotel was very full, like the beach and pool area.

Sneaky yet pleasant!!!

Hotel is cozy and attractive with private/public beach access. The staff the took care of our room maintenance was fabulous leaving all kinds of cute folds on the towels etc and none of our things (including laptops, i-pods, radios, jewelry etc) were stolen or misplaced. Only complaint I have is that I paid to be in Villa del Palmar and the day we were checking out I ended finding out that we were placed in their cheaper Villa del Mar rooms... this was upsetting since their price is lower compared to Villa del Palmar.
