Very Exspensive TIME SHARE Hotel

Service was BAD , you could wait half and hr. for a drink. If you wanted a meal an hr. Meals was very expensive Soon as people knew you didn't buy a time share, they didn't want to talk to you any more. It was the worst holiday of my life. Don't go there. They basically call you and ide it, if you don't buy a time share. 90 minute turns into 4 hrs. of bagging us to buy. You have to go to the time share meeting or they keep bugging you.Bad bad holiday

Great Vacation

Everything was great! This hotel is definitely kid friendly. If your trying to do a romantic getaway I would say stay somewhere else, lots and lots of kids. Only other negative was the hotel charged for EVERYTHING, very expensive!

Gorgeous, clean, and lots of family fun!

The one thing that really put a cloud over this holiday (and the only issue but it was disturbing)was the fiasco at time of checkin. Afer travelling for many hours, all we wanted was our room key to get on our bathing suits and hit the beach. Instead, we were required to sit at the second desk for another 45 minutes to book an appointment to sit through a time share presentation for the following morning. We were assured that this presentation would be ONLY 90 minutes however I ended up losing 4 hours of my vacation time. On top of that, the sales people was very rude when we declined to purchase time shares. If we had known that this resort required you to sit through a sales pitch we would have chosen another hotel. But besides this snag, the stay was wonderful

Great Vacation

Great family vacation destination! Wonderful staff. Just right for families with kids. We visited a small town called Sayulita - about 20 minutes from our hotel. I highly recommend a day in this surfing / fishing town. One of our favorite vacations so far.

Manageable, laid-back

In early May, Villa Del Palmar was not overly crowded. Great swimming pool area with everyone very chilled and laid back. Beach is right there if one wishes to lie out there. The salads at the site's deli, Palmita, were terrific and reasonably priced. The Mexican salad with grilled chicken, corn, avocado, tomato, carrots and cucumbers was top-notch - very filling and tasty. Unfortunately the main restaurant on the site has a limited menu but it features a Fajita night, steak night, mexican festa night, etc. The per person cost for each of these nights is in the 500 peso range (without discount).

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Rather than taking the taxi into Puerto Vallarta, it costs only 16 pesos to take the ATM bus from right outside Villa del Palmar to Walmart, and then another 6.5 pesos on one of the many local buses from Walmart to the center of old town. There's a wonderful vegetarian restaurant - only 75 pesos for lunch - Planet Vegetarian on Iturbide Calle. Great salads as well as main entrees.

holy guacamole - awesome!

We went here because I checked the reviews for places in Puerto Vallarta and this one seemed to be among the best. I will say that on the drive up the RIU Palace building looked more impressive, but after reading the reviews of the rooms there I am glad we went with the Flamingo. Why? Because they gave us, by far, the biggest hotel room I have ever seen, 1200 sq feet with 2 bathrooms, one of which was the size of a standard hotel room. Also, the balcony was split in 2 parts and was also hugely oversize, with gorgeous ocean and pool views. We didn't get the all inclusive because I didn't want to be chained to the resort if we disliked it, but no fear in the future because the food and drinks were as good as anywhere in town, or any of the best Mexican restaurants anywhere. It was also very handy to have a nice little store in the resort, which was well stocked with good stuff at unexpectedly decent prices. As mentioned several times, the staff was excellent... friendly when we felt chatty, discrete and subtle when we wanted to be alone. We did not go to any of the timeshare presentations, since I was on vacation and didn't plan to spend it being pitched by a salesman. I was worried that they would hassle us, as seen in some other reviews, but after we gave a firm initial no we never heard about it again (thank god!) I have stayed in several 5 star places which might lay claim to being *slightly* more fancy and stuffy, but I have never had as much fun as I had here at the VDP Flamingo because the location, staff, food, drinks, and rooms were all completely fantastic. When I imagine heaven nowadays, it bears a striking resemblance to this resort.

Time-saving tip: In Hotel

Avoid timeshare presentations, don't even get drawn into a discussion. Politely ignore any mention of them, as if someone had just cut the cheeze.
