Several others have described the facility and services in detail and their views are generally consistent with our own. The people were great, the city/location were fine and the hotel, though a little dated, was more than acceptable. Our challenges were with the PV experience from the viewpoint of "all inclusive" travellers. Our family of four - 2 adults and...

Transportation: We opted for the $24 per person transportation from the airport upon our arrival. Unfortunately nothing is marked and the “Villa Del Palmar” staff we encountered at the airport were timeshare sales people, and could not direct us to our designated ride, we ended up taking a taxi, which ended up being less than the $48 we had paid....

Arrived on a busy spring break Saturday. Check-in was fast. Time share push was minimal; likely due to the fact that this was out 18th week of stay at the VDP and had already done the "tour" previously. Very impressed that even with the peso's de-valuation against the US$, prices at the pool have not gone up. This made happy...

Dear erkevin We really appreciate your loyalty to our resort. There were a few things about prices that you found high and still you want to come back, that is loyalty and we're so thankful for that. We would also like to thank you for your feedback regarding our housekeeping department and how it was able to meet your expectations....

Last summer, we stayed at the Villa del Palmar and it was fantastic. One of the wonderful qualities about the Mexican culture is that the philosophy "mi casa es su casa" rings true on all levels of Mexican commercial hospitality. After visiting 12 countries last year, it's been my experience that this is most often NOT the case. Arriving in...

This was our second stay, and it was even better than the first. The resort is very clean and well-maintained, but it is the staff who make it worth coming back. Eduardo started our mornings with a warm smile, Francisco brightened our days by the pool, and Oscar made us laugh at dinner. Our 2 bed/3 bath unit was very...

We pounced upon this resort ready to have an amazing vacation, and we did just that. The pools are immaculate and the beach has ample chairs to stick your toes in the sand with a drink in hand. I recommend grabbing some 2 for 1 frozen concoction during the numerous happy hours during the day! Hungry?! Grab some tacos or...

The location is terrific, close to shopping (walking distance to major mall with large superstore like grocery) the Malecon is a 7.50 peso bus ride, so fun! the beach is small but compared to the flamingo's much easier to enter and exit the water. The service people are the best. Francisco made a fabulous impression with his charisma and attention...

Worst place I have ever stayed in !! Advertised as beach front resort. ...what a joke.....small roped off area of ocean with local fishing boats circling it.....gasoline and oil slick in wading area....HORRIBLE!!! ..We checked out early and went home.....don't ask for the mountain view room; it's over the parking lot.

Everything about our 4-night stay at Villa Del Palmar was excellent. From the minute we arrived, to the minute we left. The service was exceptional. The first night, we were in a room that was along the main, busy street. Even with two doors - one main door, and another one into the main studio room - the noise was...
