7 days at Villa Del Palmar

Would recommend Mon, Aug 23, 2010
I thought the room was nice, but I thought that everything on the property was expensive. There was really only 1 resturant, but you could get food in the bar also.

Dining

many resturants on the boardwalk were good and a great view (and cheaper than the hotel). It seemed that when you asked someone to recommend a place to eat, they were getting something from it. Asking other travelers where they liked is the best.

Great Time!

Would recommend Wed, Jul 7, 2010
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.

Nightlife hint

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!

Will return again.

Would recommend Fri, May 28, 2010
The location is away from the downtown and it's only a quick cab ride to get where you want. The hotel is walking distance to the grocery store where we could take care of breakfasts and cocktails and snacks. The pool is the best and the proximity to the beach is also great. I will definitely return again.

Money saver

Shopping at the Soriano was great, fresh produce, cheeses, cocktails, coffee and anything else you would need.

Villa del Palmar Resort

Would recommend Fri, May 28, 2010
My experience at Puerto Vallarta was great. The hotel is really nice. It has 3 beautiful pools, but the beach at the hotel is not that great, "there are a lot better beaches at Vallarta". When I got to the Hotel, I did not liked how the staff treated us. They were looking at us in a very unfrendly way because we were dressed casual, and probably because we were Latinos. They also tried to sell us tour packages way expencier than they really are. They hotel is REALLY, REALLY nice, and it is in a great location because its close to the mall, grocery stores and the port where the tour little ships are. Do not buy the tour tickets at the hotel. Get them like a mile away going towards holly day in. They are a lot cheaper. The staff at the lobby its really BAD. Im serious.

Entertainment hint

The arcos tour and El eden tour they are the best. Tickets are just a mile away from the hotel. CHEAPER than buying them there.

Nice getaway

Would recommend Mon, May 3, 2010
I traveled with my 22 year old daughter and had a very pleasant stay but this trip lacked the excitement of previous trips. This was my fourth trip to Puerto Vallarta. Each of the other resorts was all-inclusive with very friendly staff, friendly guests and entertainment staff that bent over backwards for you. This hotel had a totally different feel because it is not all inclusive. People retreated to their rooms for meals and drinks, so that even during happy hour, the bar was empty. There were some very friendly and helpful front desk and vallet staff. Unfortunately, the staff person that served us most often was just not friendly and never smiled even after generous tips. Friendly waitstaff is typical at most hotels in Mexico and makes a trip much more pleasant so this was quite different from my past experiences. Staff recommended some good restaurants. I would have given the hotel 4 stars because the hotel is really nice. Beds were really comfy, and having a kitchen, pool view and balcony was great. Unfriendly staff and lack of any excitement brought their rating down.

Shopping hint

There is a Soriano grocery store a couple of blocks away for basic items rather than the expensive store connected to the hotel. Near Soriano there is also a internet shop. The hotel charged $5 US per half hour. This shop near Soriano charged 50 cents per half hour.

Wonderful Week!

Would recommend Sun, Apr 25, 2010
My son and I flew to Puerta Vallarta spontaneously for a Mother/Son vacation. We didn't know anything about the city or the culture. Most of the staff spoke enough English to help us with things like transportation, tipping, money exchange, etc. At the hotel there were a couple of Tour Guides who helped us set up adventures, and gave us all the information needed to get there and have a terrific time. Great place!
