Villa Del Palmar Beach Resort & Spa Puerto Vallarta defines the all-inclusive experience. Guests can fill their days with the numerous planned activities -- including Spanish lessons, water aerobics and volleyball -- or simply sit by the pool, where a water slide shaped like a whale is an endless source of entertainment. Rooms, meanwhile, feel like Mexican villas thanks to full refrigerators, kitchenettes and quaint pottery and furniture.
Dining
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.
Rooms
Villa Del Palmar Beach Resort & Spa Puerto Vallarta caters to extended-stay travelers who appreciate the convenience of kitchenettes, full-size refrigerators, cookware and the other necessities for preparing their own meals. 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.
Property 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.

Villa Del Palmar PVR

We have stayed at this hotel several times and love it here. The staff is great and the resort and gardens are beautifully maintained. Good location, easy to get in to town and close to stores.

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.

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.

Great Staff

The staff at this hotel go above and beyond to make your stay perfect. The front desk went above and beyond to ensure we had the exact suite that we wanted. All of the staff that I interacted with made the stay all the more special. I would highly recommend this hotel. The two bedroom suites are perfect for travelers that have different plans and you can have all of the privacy that you need, even when traveling with others. Location is convenient to everything!!!

Everything from shopping to night life. The restaurants are great and there is plenty to do after hours within a short distance from the hotel or even on the property.

great vacation!

Villa del Palmar was a very confortable, a beautiful place to be on your vacation. The food is excellent and the rooms are clean and larger than in many other hotels we've been. On feture a liked a lot was the fact that there was a kichenett in the room, with small refrigerator, microwave and provided with anything you need to make your breakfast, lunch or even a light dinner if you don't to eat out every time.

Wouldn't Stay Anywhere Else!

The staff at the Villa del Palmar couldn't be nicer or more eager to assist you in any way possible. I love getting up at six in the morning and going down to the beach and watch the bay as the sun comes up. I haven't stayed in any other hotel in Puerto Vallarta where the beach is raked clean every morning. This was our fifth year here and wouldn't think of moving hotels due to the quality of service and the people who work so hard to ensure that our stay is wonderful each year!

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

If you go all the way to Puerto Vallarta, be sure to cross the river either by bus or taxi. Check out the restaurants on Basio Badillo and Olas Altas. Hada's Garden, Cafe de Olla, Pancho's Tacos, El Palomar de los Gonzales, La Piazzata. We use the busses which are great and run all of the time. Old Town also has some of the best sunset beach bars.
