Wife and I have stayed @ Villa del Palmar at least 10x over last 10 yrs. We never eat there because we like to experience restaurants throughout PV. Best part of Villa del Palmar is the staff, especially Bellman Jamie. He is absolutely the best. We will stay there again, however, we have a couple complaints. 1) Money exchange never has enough $20 peso bills or $100 peso bills 2) Linens. Specifically sheets. They must be 10yrs old because it was like sleeping on grit. Had to sleep in pajama's. Will bring personal sheets next trip. 3) Margarita's are horrible, however, Beer is cold. Ps. AC works great.

Not as advertised

First of all, this hotel was not all-inclusive as advertised. I was sure I had booked it as such, but when we arrived, we found that was not the case. The restaurants were also nothing like they were listed on the website. The bar that is called Los Equipales Sports Bar on the website, was called La Patron and had a full menu. The food was very good. La Cucina might have been there, but we never found it. Instead there was a small place with a breakfast buffet that left much to be desired and the dinner fare was not much better. Maybe in a way, it was better not to be booked all-inclusive. I think they had WiFi, but I didn't need that and I suspect you had to pay extra for it like the internet cafe which only had 3 working computers. That said, the room was nice with comfortable beds and great pillows. Loved the balcony overlooking the swimming pools, and how quiet it was for sleeping at night. As far as location - it was not a bad area as there were places to eat within walking distance. Would I go to Puerto Vallarta again? Yes. Would I stay at this hotel again? Only if they have a more accurate description of their amenities.

Back many times

Been coming here for 9 years and we don't own a Time Share. Yes this Hotel is much like others they will give you VIP "title" if you come visit their other property and listen to their pitch (TS). Don't know what it is like, we have never been. We like the fact each room has a kitchen and balconey. This can be very relaxing in the morning and night. with either coffee or a drink.The grounds are well manicured and very clean. Location is great and it is not so big that it takes a long time to get anywhere. Lots of couples and maybe a slight older crowd. Things get quite by 10pm, No night club on site so I think this is why, which is fine with us.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Great Roasted Chicken with Potatoes by the Mall outside of Sorrian's grocery store. About a 10 minuite walk from the Villa Del Palmar. Can feed a family of 4 for $12

Absolutely fantastic!

My experience at this hotel was even better than I expected! Everyone was helpful, friendly, and very professional. They were quick to solve any problem even if it didn't have to do with the hotel itself. They have friendly and energetic activity hosts that respectfully try to involve all guests in aqua aerobics and games such as ping-pong, volleyball at the beach and the pool. They have beautiful, skillful shows and great buffets, too. It is close to down town and old town with easy and accessible transportation. My only complaint would be that I was not expecting to have a daily gratuity added to my charges balance. I wish I had known ahead so I could have given it directly to people who serviced me each day as cleaning staff changed daily, and I can't prove that such set charge made by the hotel went directly to the employees. However, it might have been my fault for declining to attend the welcoming introduction offered along with a margarita.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Taking a local bus right outside of the hotel to down town, you can have great meals for very little money.

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.
