My husband and I are just back from a week at Villa del Mar. Had a great time. Stayed in a two bedroom, three bath, full kitchen unit-- it was a timeshare trade. Decor is dated, towels are a bit thin and scratchy, but the place is so clean you could almost eat off the floor. One morning, while having... More

We booked a 5-day stay at the Villa del Mar (part of the Villa Group) and we paid well over premium --in part because it was part of the new year's week. The staff tried to be helpful and informative, although so informative that we were dragged to this time-share event (below). The room was always impeccable and the room... More

My boyfriend and I just visited Puerta Vallarta from December 15-19th and had one of the best experiences of our lives! The staff and crew were very attentive, welcoming, and friendly and they treated us with the up-most respect! (Especially Ernesto and Gustavo) We are in our early 20's and the part of the resort that we stayed in was... More

Upfront disclosure: owner of 1BR unit bought in VDP Cancun Upon arrival we were assigned a personal concierge named William. He was wonderful. Our first and only issue was the initial suite. We booked a 2BR unit and it looked nothing like the layout options shown on the VDP website. More important, it had no privacy. It was a direct... More

The Villa del Mar and, to a lesser extent, the sister property next door, Villa del Palmar, are undergoing extensive updating and reconstruction of rooms, parking areas, paths and grounds. The workers start early and, at least some of them, work till dark. From 8 am until at least 6 pm, one hears drills, saws, hammers and cement mixers. I... More

Spacious clean rooms with kitchenettes & huge bathroom. Excellent staff keep everything spotless. Transit is right outside the hotel, walking distance to large supermarket. Only draw back was NO internet - only for the owners of the condos. Restaurants were very good. Would stay there again.

Upon arriving at this resort from a much larger and more luxurious resort in Nuevo Vallarata, my family and I were a bit disappointed. The resort, itself, is on the small side, and seemed rather cramped after our previous sprawling resort. Although the resort is beachfront, and the small grounds are pleasant, the designated swimming area is very small and... More
