Tradicional Villa Del Mar

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I stayed here a few weeks ago and the manager Javier was kind enough to give me information on places to visit around Mexico City not only that on my first day he gave me a lift to the city centre so that i didn't have to walk or catch a cab/uber. The room was nice, clean and quite big ! also really affordable. The internet works well. The location is not too far away from the city centre. The staff are lovely. The only thing is the other guests were quite noisy so i could always hear everything and had to listen to music to go to sleep but that is out of the hotel's control i guess.

We loved our stay at this hotel its basically a 3.5 but close to 4 star hotel, its older but well kept and cleaned, great hotel staff friendly and helpful. Check in was quick and they allowed us to check in 4 hrs early, check out was easy and quick. Hotel is right on the beach small but clean, lots of chairs, Two pools never busy, showers outside and a hot tube. The hotel is a 10 minute bus ride to downtown and the Marina, lots of restaurants nearby and across the street is a large shopping centre and 9 food trucks with a nice shaded sit down area. Wifi is $10 a day and a little slow, lots of day time and evening shows and dinners. We would most certainly return

I stayed in the Hotel Villa Del Mar twenty years ago as a student in the New World Teachers Program at the University of Guadalajara-Puerto Vallarta and resided there for a month (18 October - 17 November 1997). It was a great stay! Everyone on-staff were hard-working and kind: the front desk ladies were knowledgeable of the local area and the city at large and the cleaning ladies were always very hard-working, diligent, and accommodating. There are several restaurants, tortiilerias, cafes, and shops nearby, and the beach is only aobut six or seven blocks away, and the Municipal Market Rio Cuale is very near, as well. It was a JOY to stay here! If I ever travel to Puerto Vallarta again, I know whwre my wife and I will stay: Hotel Villa Del Mar!

It was the first time I stayed on this side of the resort but I was pleasantly surprised. The room was a little older but the room was large and clean.The staff at all the restaurants and stores were all amazing. Love the location of this resort. It's closed to everything including the new "Isla mall". Saw a movie there at the Cinepolis. For 6 bucks you get posh movie experience. The flight there and back was not crowed at all, which was also a plus. I will definitely be back!!!

Hey... it is what it is. It's certainly not a luxury resort, but they're not charging luxury prieces. It's an older traditional Mexican hotel in a charming neighbourhood a few blocks from the beach. The rooms are small by US standards, and there are few amenities. But it's clean, the bed was comfortable, and the staff are friendly and helpful. There can be an issue with noise, and the internet in the room was spotty at best. And there's no elevator. Overall, we'd be happy to stay there again.

Hotel is comfortable and clean. Maid service daily, but our room didn't get cleaned until late afternoon, making afternoon siesta bothersome. Staff is very accommodating and friendly. WiFi is good if you are near the router (we weren't). Our room was located overlooking the road and got quite noisy. Closing the window helped some.

I have stayed here in 2015, 2016, and will be staying again this year in February. This is a great little hotel for a low-key, low-maintenance traveler. The staff is very friendly and the housekeepers do a fantastic job on making sure your room is cleaned daily. I've never had any issues staying here, would recommend for solo travelers like myself.

This hotel is exactly as advertised. The rooms are basic, clean, and affordable. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The location was perfect, within walking distance to pretty much everything. The only issue is traffic noise. I will stay here again.

Hotel was fine older yet clean bed comfortable a lot of stairs and was just about as far as you want to walk to the beach. Over all it was the right place for me I spend a lot of my time out and it was quiet clean and cofortable.

Staff and check in were efficient. Room was dated was not able to get hot water for the shower, it had large fridge, and cook top and Microwave as well as stuff to make coffee or tea. The patio area was nice, as was the pool area. There was a nice sports bar up front. One is able to use the facilities and pool at the slightly up market sister hotel situated on the same property.
